Playing the Patriots is like playing Duke in NCAA
You have to go in there KNOWING you are not going to get a fair shake. That's just the way it is. Being a UNC fan over the years I feel the exact same way about Duke basketball, you are basically playing 5 on 8 in Cameron.
But though it did change the game drastically it certainly didnt lose the game for us. Once again, you had a large group of guys playing "Well" but no one really made that "one huge play" that would propel us to victory.
Ronnie needs some holes, that's the bottom line. The fact that we go to the shotgun formation on 3rd and 2 and 3rd and 3 is embarassing.
Also as a side note, as well as Mare kicks, he is awful other if the conditions are anything other than pristine. That's what made Adam V. so special when he was with the Pats (he should go into the Hall IMO). And didnt he warm up on the field? So why wouldn't he know that the field is garbage and adjust it pre-game?
