They cant ban Panthers fans quick enough over there.
Exactly!!!!! When they come to the Huddle most act like a bunch of immature clueless,trolling jerks. I believe the better class of Patriot fans stay on their own forum and mostly the riff-raff come here.
Who was the sorry S.O.Bof a Patriot offensive lineman that legged whipped Charles Johnson. It was obvious the way he laid there, then whipped his leg into Johnson. I hope the team sends this top the league for review. It would be holy poo to our front seven if we had lost him for the season. What a relief to see him come back in the game.
I hate the Roughing the Passer call — a lot. The referees are making a mockery of the rule when a pass rusher goes out of his way to avoid making contact with his helmet (all the while being held by the right tackle) and gets penalized for hitting the 5’11″ QB too high in the chest. I am 100% in favor of protecting the great passers of this league, but this call isn’t helping legitimize the rules in place.
It also completely changed the outcome of the game, and I’m never a fan of The Striped Ones defining the outcomes of games. That was a terrible sequence for the entire NFL.
I got the stats several day ago from nesn.com and they also said....Brady is taking more time to get rid of the ball. Last year, Brady took just 2.47 seconds to get rid of the ball, according to Pro Football Focus. This year, he’s taking 2.57 seconds. He averaged 3.39 seconds in the pocket per sack last year. This year, he’s averaging 3.57 seconds per sack.
So, Brady’s line is actually keeping him upright for longer. Brady is just staying in the pocket for longer, failing to get rid of the ball quickly.
