  • Patriots offensive line problems go beyond one position. Logan Mankins isn't walking through the door...and it probably wouldn't matter.

    Yeah, like i said before, we need to get dante out of retirement fast. Obviously, he's the onky guy who can put sh-t on the o-line and come out with gold

    Just cringe to think of this DL as it's currently constituted against Manning or Rodgers.

  • A 27-yard Dolphins field goal makes it 33-20, Miami. 2:44 to play. #NEvsMIA
  • Dragon 9/7/2014 8:08:22 PM
    The more general issue is a lingering, leftover problem from past year, which is the Pats' tendency to come out of the halftime locker room like zombies. It caught up with them today. They can't do that in a place like South Florida where they always struggle.

  • Sturgis hits the 27 yard field goal to extend the lead to 33-20! #NEvsMIA

    30 minutes of football from the Pats today. Belichick obviously doesn't excel as a halftime motivator.

    Toronto, think it goes back to the last time Wilfork made a tackle

    But, but...Shaugnessey said this was the "tomato can" division. Said last week that fans and press were far too cavalier about this game. Reminiscent of the last opening day loss in the sense of a shocking parting of the ways with a popular player (Milloy)

    The Pats caving to the Wilfork hardline now doesn't look so smart. That guy is just plain fat now. Takes getting paid more seriously than anything else.

    Seattle, 49ers, Packers would have beat either of these teams by 21

    Relax folks. Horrible display for sure but so much hype around the team, fall was inevitable. Reminds me of when Milloy was cut and they got destroyed. I'm not writing them off yet, but cautious for sure.

    If not for the 1st half turnovers by Miami, we would've been blown out today

    La Foul needs to be cut within 24 hours.

    Edelman shut out in the second half too.

    Lafell earned everything Miami gave him

  • Tom Brady has been sacked four times in this game, tied for the most sacks he's taken in a season-opener in his career.
  • FanSinceThe60s 9/7/2014 8:17:08 PM
    I thought LaFell's strength was going up and getting balls like that?

  • Tom Brady has been sacked four times by the #Dolphins today. That's the most ever for him in a season-opener.

    Pats always struggle down there

    Actually, I'd cut WIlfork along with LaFell, but as someone pointed out we're too thin across the D-line. Vince sure ain't thin. He's fatter than ever, and I think he's all about getting paid anymore and that's about it. Disgrace.
