Interesting things from last night:

- It's obvious KC is preparing their offense for Pat Mahomes because they inserted
a ton of college "gimmick" stuff (Pistol, QB Read Option, Wildcat).  Credit to
Alex Smith because he operated well within the system and actually attacked
vertically down the field

- It's only one game but NE doesn't seem to have much dynamic talent in their
front seven.  Their DLine seems to be a bunch DT "pluggers" and their LB's
didn't seem to have any speed.  Have they gotten too cute in getting rid of
Chandler Jones and Jaime Collins?  Only when they brought Devin McCourty into 
the box did they have any athletes close to the line of scrimmage.  And David
Harris looked his age whiffing on tackles as he tried to track down Kareem Hunt

nbc.com its free live stream.  Man people, at least look around.  And if you need to ask if you are missing anything, you are missing something because you felt the need to ask.

edit: sorry if that comes off harsh, i'm incredibly annoyed for having listened to Collinsworth for 2 ******* hours already

All good....  I was being sarcastic and yes, I woke up this morning with a woody when I heard the PASTS lost. Fukk them. They cant lose enough for me.

There are 32 teams in the NFL.

Right now, 31 of them still have the possibility of going undefeated.

Can you guess who the one team is that cannot? :D

A couple of other things:

- The Jets roasted Stephon Gilmore last year with crappy Fitzpatrick and he looks no
better this year

- Apart from the 4th quarter of the Super Bowl when ATL coaching staff drank "stupid juice"
NE defense has been run off the field the last two games

That stuff isn't a gimmick, when will people learn that? Those are football plays based upon number principles, and putting defenders in binds. The spread is here to stay.

KRL - while I like your insights, I have to disagree on the offense.  They are running that stuff to take advantage of Tyreke Hill and Hunt's explosiveness and it actually plays to smiths talents as someone who is accurate in the short range, and is athletic enough to run play action fakes etc.  I think its just a smart coach, which reid is, putting his players in the best position to do what they do best.  I do think smith is feeling the Mahomes heat and said "F-it" and is letting it rip more this year.

Offensively, I think what KC is doing is something that Morton likely can do here to manufacture yardage for this offense.  Using guys like Kerley, Kearse, and Adarius in motion and in stack formations, will play to their strengths as smaller, shifty WRs and also open up the running game/RB pass catching ability of Powell and McGuire (and even Forte).  I think that type of short passing offense, with "some gimmicks" is not only the best way to try to compete this year, but is also likely the best type of offense to break in a young QB like Darnold, Jackson, Falk or even Allen as they are good athletes who will need the offense to help them along in the beginning. 

NE defense though did look very slow - they do not have any DEs or LBs with any sort of burst to challenge off the edge.

Boy do I look like a genius for drafting hunt in the 2nd round of my draft 

The Pats keyed on Kelce but had no answer for Hunt. Collinsworth was whining about injuries, but 500 yards of KC offense says it's way beyond that.And their offense misses Adelman way more than you would have expected. Perhaps there is lax player out there...

Will the Pats join  the Bills and Jets in the tankathon?

"Any thoughts on the refs in this game? I thought they let the chiefs get away with some stuff." LOLOLOLOL

 

Chiefs had 14 accepted penalties against them mid 4th quarter. Massholes are bad at math.

Reading the posts at the start of this thread was like reading my texts from last night.  I have Hunt and Gillislee in fantasy.  Like any normal person, I started Hunt and sat Gillislee.  I got a bunch of Hunt butterfingers messages and "should have started Gillislee."  How do they like me now?

In addition to what the others have said, I think you underestimate how good Smith is as an athlete.  He is faster than Mahomes and just as suited to this kind of stuff. His inability to be a world class pocket passer means you can't be afraid to use his athleticism.

Observations I made...Brady for the most part had alot of time to throw but still looked slow and confused. Alex Smith looked like Dan Marino out there against the Pats defence. He has only thrown for over 300 yards 6 times in his career....you really think that's just a coincidence he did that against "the best team in the league".
The Pats spent stupid money and multiple trades....more than they have to my memory and it looks like it's not paying off...the defence looked confused as did the offence.
Did you see Stephen Gillmore get absolutely burned by Tyreke Hill. Gilmore was playing on another zip code.

I wonder if this thread will have similar feel, come seasons end.

Good.....
The Pats can't lose enough for me.
F them
F the city of New England
F the whole damn state.
I hope the get smoked by New Orleans next week as well




PiG riPe SlauGhtEr

New Orleans defence could be better but if Brees has a good game anything is possible. He can put up monster numbers and if what Alex Smith was able to do is any indication it may be another fun game to watch. I'm predicting a full blown shootout.

Totally agree regarding the front 7. They looked very ordinary, got gashed in the running game and barely got pressure. The secondary blowing coverages didn't help but the front 7 was awful.

Well, I've seen them lose a game and then win like 10 in a row. And as someone pointed out last night 3 times when they've lost their first game they've won the SB. Look, I'm not trying to rain on our parade. It was a good night for Jets fans. After rooting for our team (at least most of us do) being against them is number two on our list of favorite things to do NFL wise.

Yeah, definitely agree with not getting on board with this "they're done" mentality.  While not as common in recent years, in the earlier days of Brady/Belichick, the Pats were pretty infamous for being at their absolute worst to start the season, even losing to teams far worse than the Chiefs, stirring up predictions that they might be on the decline, only to be right back where they were a few weeks later.  Over a decade later, that still hasn't come to fruition.

I thoroughly enjoyed that game and hope it keeps happening, but even if this ends up being an overall "down year" by their standards, they're still a good money bet to take the division and we'll see what happens from there.  I'd be thrilled if it doesn't go that way, but it's still too early for me to be convinced.

My favourite part is it now shuts up the whole media narrative we've heard since about February about how loaded they are and can they go undefeated.

Now if we can win on Sunday we'll also shut up the whole narrative of us going 0-16 because we're the worst roster in the history of football.

As for NE, yes they'll likely turn last night into a springboard for 10+ wins on the trot. I'd hate to be NO next week.
