Patricia is a fool figurehead

Quote:
After Sunday’s game, Belichick said it was a football decision, not rooted in discipline.

Here’s what Patricia delivered: “We just played all the guys we could to try to help us win in whatever packages we had. Different situations came up, and we were just trying to move things around . . . He was active for the game and anybody who is active for the game is ready to go. We just had a situation where we had some matchups and packages that we went with.’’

Bull. Crap. Like Belichick, Patricia embarrasses himself and the team with this non-answer of an obvious and important question.

The lack of penalties on the Pats is truly staggering. If you watch closely, you can see holding by their Oline almost every pass play. I can't believe how well schooled they are to get away with it. They do it quite subtly at times. Other times it is quite obvious but the refs somehow miss it.

I thought NE had clear DPIs on both of the Eagles two point tries last night. Again, not sure what refs were doing. I also thought Gilmore had DPI on the play where Alshon bobbled the ball and it was picked. Gilmore blocked Alshon's left arm before the ball arrived and he could only get his right arm on it.

I think NE is well coached to push the boundaries of offensive and defensive holding and DPI. Shame on the refs for missing a lot of it though.

that blog article was spot on. they always get the least calls and the most favorable, but looks like Goodell pressed the scale the other way last night.

What blog article?

And where's the Gasper article that mentions the Riveron Reversal?

Schiano being named Pats DC. That pretty much cements that BB is not retiring.

The reasons there were so few sacks or near sacks was IMO due in large part to the decision to not call holding

I agree with jeemie ... I believe the refs were told to lay off the flags especially for DPI and holding
The were also told no intricate rule interpretations ... keep it clean

The league wanted clean offense driven football

Just curious as to how the schadenfreude ranks with you on this one. Here's how I rank them:

1. 2007 vs. Giants - broke up their perfect season
2. 2017 vs. Eagles - defense and BB implode. Talking so much shit about getting to six
3. 2011 vs. Giants - losing to Eli twice. This game Eli made a Brady-like pass to Manningham to get the Giants to victory.

I'll put them in the same order. Great thing in all THREE games, is Patriots gave up a late 4Q TD to lose the game!!

More on Butler

Quote:
c__________ge said: ↑
If it was disciplinary, Butler wouldn't have been playing in the game at all. But he was playing on special teams. Short of throwing the game on purpose or early-onset dementia, there is no explanation for Bill's behavior.
Butler had ONE SNAP all game. He was on the Wing on the Punt Coverage unit..

That's a player who has been demoted from the starting line-up for whatever reason.

The rumors are starting to pile up. I don't know what, if any are true, but there are now Two Ex-Patriots who have come out mentioning things. They have somewhat corroborated the RobotDave Tweets that we saw..

- Missing Team flight to MN
- Cleaning out his locker at Gillette after team left
- dogging it in practice when he finally did get to MN.
- partying late and missing curfew.
- Caught smoking weed during Room Check.
- Missing Saturday's team meeting. (BTW, BB benched Adalius Thomas for the same thing. Thomas still dressed, but spent the entire game on the sidelines).
- Arguing with coaches on Saturday.

I don't know what is true. Only Butler and the Coaches do. But if he missed Saturday's Team meeting, then that's on him. Especially since it's been a standing rule of BB's.
