Not one team scares me as a Pats fan. That doesn't mean that they can't lose to any team. I wasn't scared by either Giants SB winning team, and I didn't fear the Falcons last year.

I think the Patriots have typically lost to teams with superior defenses: NYG, DEN, BAL.

At some point this season, I've been impressed by the following defenses:
-Jax
-Minny
-Philly
-LA Rams
-KC
-Carolina

I think Philly and LA are still a heavy underdog in the SB vs the Pats.

Wretched, absolutely wretched, performance from the Patriots tonight.

I get it -- Miami in Miami.  But every time the Pats lose, the world continues to make a little less sense to me.

The Pats just stink in Miami. Don't know why, but it's a bad habit of theirs.

You can't win them all

Well, the Pats had already demonstrated that this season. I certainly didn't need them to prove that saying with a terrible performance against an inferior team. But maybe this will light a fire under them?

Wretched, absolutely wretched, performance from the Patriots tonight.

Yeah, they stink.

Sarcasm? Regardless, I recognize that the Patriots are a good team, and that they were without Gronk tonight, and they usually struggle in Miami. Still, games like this scare me. They had an extra day off and it didn't help. They got Hogan back and hardly used him (1 catch on 5 targets). The defense, which had seemingly improved a good deal over the last 6-8 weeks, regressed a lot tonight, giving up numerous big plays.

But, as they say, on to Pittsburgh.

Pretty banged up Pats team tonight who's offensive and defensive lines played like crap. Pretty easy to see why they lost. Hats off to the Dolphins who alwsys makes things tough on the Pats in south Florida.

Van Noy and Flowers are massive losses.

Not that worried. Win the next 3 games and you are the 1 seed.

Nope, it's actually 7-9. Crazy, right?

Anyway, couldn't ask for a much worse game from the Pats. Everything looked so easy for the Dolphins - hopefully they don't wallow too much in this pathetic loss and prepare better for the Steelers.

Not exactly a top notch night for Boston sports.

Who's "you?"

Itís the collective you, Yo!
This is New England. The only New Englanders you can include in the collective is Vermont and the People's Republic of Cambridge.

No taxation without representation! No telling us we can't win them all! We are the Patriots!
