Since we're paying attention to both of these games, let's talk about them in here.

Right now, it's 3-0 Baltimore over the Jaguars, and the Jets and Dolphins are tied at 0-0.

Matt Stover just missed a field goal for Baltimore, so they're still ahead 3-0.

Not that I really want to jump ahead because we still have a long way to go.

But personally, I would rather play the Jets in the playoffs than the Ravens.

The interception was called back but Pennington just fumbled!!!!!!!! Recovered by the Jets!

Interception was called back because of defensive holding on our old friend Ty Law. Jets just recovered a fumble though.

The Jets are going to see the Ravens ahead by 10 points at halftime and lose their sense of urgency. Touchdown Fins. The Patriots season is over.

Morgan
12-28-2008, 06:47 PM
Yeah but, what's to stop the Jets from putting all their backups in? They can't go to the playoffs and, I'm 100% sure nobody on the Jets team wants to see the Pats go to the playoffs.

It's called pride. Brett Favre has pride, and he's going to try to win the game.

Sportfan
12-28-2008, 06:54 PM
well going 9-7 could put Mangini on the hot seat. Don't know if the jets like playing for Mangini but if they do they could be laying for his job.

Even though you guys may be out, I must say I have so much respect for your oganization. Having all those guys like Brady being hurt and being 11-5 is just great. Good luck, and Bellicheck is a great coach.

Morgan
12-28-2008, 06:56 PM
I hope so. This guy Pennington just doesn't make mistakes though and Favre makes a bunch. We almost need a miracle.

Mangini's job security. He's figting for his job, and if he sits starters to spite his old boss he is done. Upper management doesn't care about feuds, they care about records. Throwing a game is looked down upon so intensely in this league that if mangini did it i doubt he could even get a coordinator job if he did it.

Favre 43.5 passer rating. I don't even know how people can say he's one of the greatest all time. I've seen him lose a lot more big games than he's won. This could be his last game ever and, he's gonna go out with a loss and a 43.5 passer rating? Cmon

penuch

Farve just looks like he has no confidence in himself out there. Nice little direct snap there.

The Patriots need to do something they usually don't do this offseason and that's spend some money. You honesty believe that Brady is going to be enough to be an automatic contender? No way. They need cornerbacks, linebackers, an offensive linemen. They whole defensive line is getting old. We need major changes. Oh and the Dolphins will be eliminated by the Ravens next week anyways. We need the best draft ever and we need to spend some money on a few free agents or else the Dolphins will win the East again guaranteed.

The Patriots aren't going to change their policy just because they got the **** end of the stick here. They will address their defense without a doubt, but I seriously doubt that they're going to break the bank on guys like Asomugha. We will see, but I would be surprised if the Patriots outspend teams for top free agents.

No we need proven players. The whole defense besides Mayo and the safeties hasn't been able to cut it the last 2 years so, why would it be any different next year. We need a defensive overhaul.

I think they should go out in free agency and get some help on the defense but I agree with penuch build through the draft like we have been, maybe to we could make a trade with the Eagles for Lito Shepherd, for some depth in the secondary, just a thought though

Whatever. Crappy way to end the year, but we simply didn't deserve to be in the playoffs. Assuming San Diego wins tonight, we lost games to 4 out of the 5 playoff teams we faced (and that's assuming you'd like to count Arizona as a legitimate playoff team), plus the 9-7 Jets. We beat the bad teams, but couldn't beat the good ones, and that's what screwed us in the end. At least I get some solace knowing that there's a good chance Mangini gets fired this offseason, and that Favre certainly doesn't go out on top. Plus, I get to chuckle at Pennington KOing the Jets.

Chris Gamble or Mike Brown would be good cornerbacks to sign. Mike Petersen, James Farrior, Jonathon Vilma or Bart Scott would be incredible linebackers to sign. If we could sign Brandon Jacobs that would be great because I've given up on Maroney. Jacobs is a bull. We don't need all thes guys but, a couple and a great draft would help.

The Patriots need to do something they usually don't do this offseason and that's spend some money. You honesty believe that Brady is going to be enough to be an automatic contender? No way. They need cornerbacks, linebackers, an offensive linemen. They whole defensive line is getting old. We need major changes. Oh and the Dolphins will be eliminated by the Ravens next week anyways. We need the best draft ever and we need to spend some money on a few free agents or else the Dolphins will win the East again guaranteed.

what are u talking about? weve never been afraid to pay guys and thats why guys like A.D. and colvin and Moss are here. What we dont do is put ourselfs into compromised salary cap positions by offering outlandish gaurenteed money to over-hyped FAs. The Dline is still the best in the league and the only reason that we wera able to produce with LBs like Gary Guyton and old man Bruschi. I'm not saying we dont have work to do, every team does. We have to find a MLB, a corner and prolly a safety too....plus find depth in the back 8 on D, and on the O-line. Not to mention the QB quagmire were about to face, but this sun is falling attitude is uncalled for. BB proved alot this year berth or not, and we are in good draft shape with a middle first and two second rounders, and we have plenty of cap room (unless we franchise matt) so ease up. appreciate the season for what it was and start watching basketball or something.

P.S. one thing we do have to worry about is losing staff. Since the Pats usually go deep we dont worry about it as much but Pioli may headed to CLE and dont be surprised if McDaniels goes with him. I think BB should suck it up and make Pioli the GM (with the one stipulation that he cant fire Belichick, obviously) but I think he's too proud for that.

Yeah but, we would have probably lost to all the same teams with Brady at the QB too with the Colts as the only exception and, that tells me we need help.

Read the 1st post on this page. We need at least 2 of those guys and a great draft to sure up this defense.

I do nto see Pioli leaving just for the simple fact that they said his dream job was the Giants and he turned them down. So I don't see him going to the Browns. On the other hand with McDaniels I wouldn't be surprised if he left, but I guess their is a chance he would stay.

well obviously we couldnt depend on the ****** jets to win, favre has got to be one of the most if not the most overrated QB in football today and in the past 5 years all he does is throw ints especially in crucial parts of games. But something in me tells me that they lost on purpose in the last quarter when they knew Baltimore had the game wrapped up and the Jets had nothing else to play for

We didn't get screwed out of the playoffs. We did this to ourselves. I said right when we lost that game to the Jets that it would come back to bite us in the end. The loss to the Colts too. We couldn't beat any good teams. We screwed ourselves out of the playoffs.

We need Bart Scott, Mike Petersen, and Chris Gamble. That would be a sick defense. We can't just count on rookies and 2nd year players to tufn this defense around. We're not in a rebuilding mode. Brady isn't getting any younger.

Are you kidding me? Look at our 5 losses:

Loss #1: Week 3 vs. Miami (Playoff Team)

Loss #2: Week 6 @ San Diego (Playoff Team if they win tonight)

Loss #3: Week 9 @ Indianapolis (Playoff Team)

Loss #4: Week 11 vs. New York (Choke Artists, but looked like a Playoff Team for a while)

Loss #5: Week 13 vs. Steelers (Playoff Team)

1) Scott is staying in Baltimore. He has openly declared that he will take a pay cut to do so.

2) Peterson is not right for this team. He has questionable leadership qualities, is often injured, and has shown to be a locker room cancer in Jacksonville. On top of that, he's not really an impact player anymore.

3) Gamble wouldn't be the first guy I would look to if I wanted to repair this secondary.

this is what i get for rooting for the jets for the first time ever, cant say i didnt see them sucking and losing this game cuz they really are a horribly coached team and have no fire in them, figures the only 2 times the pats dont win the division this decade they still tied for the best division record and only have lost it due to tiebreakers, heres to a victorious 09 for the pats!

I never said to sign them all. I said we need one good experienced corner and one good experienced linebacker and, then fill the other holes with the draft.

Mike Brown, Dunta Robinson, Terrence Newman for corners and Jonathon Vilma, James Farrior, or Karlos Dansby for linebackers then.

Newman isn't a free agent this offseason. He agreed to a 6 year, 50 million dollar extension with the Cowboys back on May 20. Farrior isn't a free agent either, because back in August he signed a 5 year, 18 million dollar contract with the Steelers.

As for the other guys, I don't see them signing here either. Brown is a safety, and a high priced one at that. We have Meriweather and Sanders at the safety position, and I see us adding depth there through the draft, if at all. Vilma isn't the right fit for our 3-4 defense, and quite frankly, isn't much better than the guys we have right now. Robinson is too injury prone, and isn't the same guy he showed he could be his rookie season. Dansby is a great player, but he's an OLB, and we already have a well-paid OLB in Adalius Thomas.
