Exactly what I wanted to point out. At one point, they were down to two receivers and had a fullback spread out. They still made our defense look like melting butter.

The only positive I can take away from today is how surprisingly great Romo was as a color commentator. Too bad we'll be back to Kenny "the corpse" Albert next week probably.

As I sit self-medicating, I can't help but wax nostalgic for the days of dependability on offense like, Deuce and Colston.

It's going to be a loooong season. Thank GOD for whiskey!

+1. Brady was missing his biggest WR target underneath ... Edelman in addition to Amendola & Hightower. Tom still sliced us up with back up RB/FB's (Burkhead) on simple passing routes.

This team has run out of excuses.

Nothing like the pain of crushed expectations. We were supposed to lose these games, but the manner of losing was just terrible. Injuries helped, but Patriots played without there 3 starting wide receivers and Bellicheck had a plan. Really a sad start to the season.

It's called no talent. Missing on free agents and missing on draft picks in last 5 years. It doesn't matter who the DC is on this team. Payton, Loomis and now Ireland all responsible. Now offense has regressed, so having to see more of the defense.

Just can't understand this. Kikaha and Anthony had exceptional rookie season, now it look that they are being syphone off. Kikaha only had 9 snaps. Provided the only sack from the DL prospective if he was considered a lb Anz did get one also.

I never said it wouldn't hurt. I said it will give the newer players valuable playing time. Why can't you understand that? It is called making a positive out of a negative. At no point have I ever said losing Armstead or Fairley or any other player is a good thing.

That's what people miss when they just make blanket statements about needing to convert on third down. We're just not good enough, right now, and that means we're not getting it done on any down.

I'm tired of the malfunctioning as well, Will. We do have some injuries that aren't helping, but this kind of play is not terribly new, regardless.
We are stalling on VERY manageable third downs. 3rd and three, 3rd and four. Those have been automatic in the past and recently it has been Snead that always got open, and more importantly, made the catch. The Saints led the NFL in 3rd down conversion rate last season with 48.64%. So far this season they are in 23rd place with a 34.78% success rate. That is a huge difference.
