    Brady was about as hot as he usually is against the Ravens. While he's now 7-1 against the Ravens, statistically he performs worse against them than anyone else.

    But Evans (and God KNOWS I'm NOT trying to defend him) wouldn't have BEEN in that situation if the Defense had forced a few more 3 and outs. Hell, the Pats kneeled going into halftime with a minute and time outs left! That should've told them right there Marcia wasn't really feeling 'it' today. I guess I just get tired of people always giving this 'vaunted D' excuses when we lose but always pile it on everybody else.

    What else did you want the D to do? The last two patriots possessions, they got a interception, after Joe gave one up and then they got a 3 and out. The Offense blew a chance to go up 8 after the fumble, when Joe missed a wide open leach.

    I think the last three and out was simply the Patriots playing conservative with the lead and little time left to play. Bele-whatever knew that a mistake at THAT position of the field would've killed them.

    But somehow he always gets enough points to beat us if the game is close.

    We needed 7 after that fumble recovery on the kickoff. I knew it would bite us in the ass.

    I told everyone around me all week that we'd have to score 28 points to win.

    You can't expect to hold that offense down every drive...they have one of the greatest QB's to ever play and had constant mismatches with their TE's on virtually every play.

    Our D did a hell of a job today.

    Evans and Cundiff just couldn't finish.

    I understand that, but the Pats last TD drive was pretty much ALL on their RBs shoulders and it didn't seem like the D had any interest in stopping it. That's what pisses me off the most. A play here or there I can understand, but to give up an ENTIRE drive (and not to Brady no less) was just vile and vomit inducing.

    You were wrong. We only needed 24.

    Unfortunately, we only got 20...

    330 total yards. Brady with ZERO TD's and a 57.7 rating. Two picks. This from an offense that regularly scores 40+ and gets 450+ yards. The defense did everything needed to win and more. Scoring a crummy 20 points against the #31 defense is what lost the game, period.

    And Brady didn't miss a wide open anyone? QB's sometime miss things but that's a mute point if Evans hangs on to a ball he caught.

    I'm afraid this OP doesn't appreciate a good defense when he sees one. Given what kind of offense we were facing and the kind of player Brady is I think it's pretty damn impressive we held them to 23 points.
