    Some of those hits the Ravens were laying out were illegal, I can't believe they did not give a 15 yard penalty on Pollard. That hit was absolutely ridiculously disturbing to watch. I saw a bunch of head to head collisions and below the knee hits. There's a fine line between tough and dirty.

    One has to wonder if BB is thinking TE in the draft. This guy has been hurt since he was drafted. Missed the super bowl now this. You dont want 6-6 Eifert going to NE. Trust me.

    You can hit a RB in the head all day when running with the football. There was nothing illegal about it. They called the ones that were illegal but I notice they did not call NE hit on Pitta I believe it was.

    I'd have to think they wanna go after a speedy WR in the draft. Not having a long ball threat really hurt them tonight.

    I am with you bro. They are the TE factory. It wouldn't surprise me at all. They will need a WR to replace Welker as he is a FA and from what I have read he won't be back.

    That will help in defenses playing so close to the line. I agree with you.

    Get real guys. Eifert would only see the field if Gronk is hurt. The Pats aren't going to spend a first round pick for a number 3 tight end. And you're nuts if you're thinking take Eifert and get rid of Gronkowski.

    That hit was perfectly legal. The RBs are fair game for helmet to helmet hits if they aren't receiving the ball. The Ravens got what 2 or 3 15 yard penalty? It was ridiculous because you see (I think it was Ray Lewis) Lower his helmet to hit a player in the midsection and the offensive player lowers his head and boom 15 yard penalty. The hit on Welker by Pollard was a 15 yarder for sure.

    Realistically, Pita got destroyed by a Patriots LB and got no call and it was helmet to helmet. Also Ed Reed called fair catch, goes and catches the ball and gets helmet to helmet and the ref didn't throw a flag. You could see the fair catch sign and the hit.

    I respectfully disagree bro. BB uses TE's a lot different and I could see him rotating three TE's in and at times having all three on the field at the same time due there size, speed and height.

    Even though the Ravens only got 1 sack, we saw a few things. Brady didn't have all day, they flushed him out of the pocket on numerous occasions. Some of those plays were coverage hurries. The pocket collapsed and a lot of throws Brady couldn't step into. The Ravens also played plenty of Man to Man in their defense and mixed up their formations and wasn't so predictable either.. You have to make Brady make multiple reads on that 3 step drop.

    You talking about the fumble? A running back that lowers his head is not a defenseless player. I thought the game was pretty well-officiated personally.

    this if offbase...physicality is not why miami loses to new england every year...it's called a qb that ids weaknesses and attacks them personnel wise and picks up things at the los like few in the league do...

    and the real weakness in the pats d is the safeties not talib and dennard the latter of which gets away with a ton of stuff after the 5 yard cutoff...the safeties are a problem in vertical coverage...they also have slow lbs in coverage you need to clear out and expose and lack a real edge rush consistent force...

    and something people don't notice of late is brady while still terrific is showing signs of a guy who age is catching up with...he misses more things of late than he ever has...as in the balls errant or a one hopper etc ...age is catching up

    and in the no huddle hurry up the pats get away with not being set a full second before snapping the ball a lot...watch the te's they usually are the last to line up and most the time they're not set a full second before brady takes the snap...should be a 5 yard penalty...if i was playing them i'd be letting the media know to put the word out...in the no huddle when they quick snap they are not set
    hoops scoops 2012 season ..."in 2014 ryan tannehill etches his name in stone amongst the games elite qbs"..."ryan tannehill and andrew luck will carry the afc for the next decade plus the way peyton manning and tom brady have this last decade plus"
