Do you actually watch players like Wes Welker or do you just like to whine? :~(

I can't deny that. Wes Welker is rock solid... Maybe they should hand him the rock on a running play! 33 pass plays, one rush. I'm not whining...these are the game stats. I am just saying that other coaches should take note.

You've heard of the West Coast offense, right?

Why is Brady still in this game? This is why I hate this team. If someone breaks his knee I will not feel any sympathy for him or that fat schlub Belichek.

I wouldn't feel bad if someone broke your face.

its not Bradys fault that hes still in the game, no need to hate on him.

Just playing Devil's advocate... Why is Big Ben still in the game? They can't realistically score 3 TD's in one minute; why risk the starting QB?

All this hate for the Pats is so uncalled for. They're competitive and they like to win. This is the NFL! These are professional athletes. They train and are paid to score points and win games. There is nothing classless about scoring more points in professional sports. Just because the other team is losing is no reason for the Pats to stop doing their job.

What's classless is everyones' wishing injuries on Pats players who stay in the game.

An injury would teach the Patriots a lesson in humility.

Big Ben should probably be out too but this happens every game. The Pariots try and pad their numbers.

It only takes one loss to drop the undefeated season. If they're only going to lose one game, I'd prefer it to be in the playoffs.

Especially if they don't sit their players to ensure an undefeated regualar season and wind up with them beat up instead of rested.

Dude, did you see that drive at all? It was runs, and then they tried to throw a quick slant to try and pick up the first....and even if you want to bash that play, it was a quick 3-step drop so Brady would get as little rush as possible.

That's hardly trying to pad stats.

So, because the Steelers (or any other team they've beaten this season) are losing, the Pats should come onto the field, spike the ball four times, and turn it over to be more humble?

I hate to get into an argument, but there's no stat-padding going on in a 34-13 game of PROFESSIONAL football. Football isn't like basketball where you can just dribble around until the game's over (even then there's a shot clock).

And like I said earlier, I'm a Steelers fan, not a Pats fan ;-D

But good game Patriots; may you have a successful INJURY-FREE rest of the season...

Totally agree.

If it was a close game, Brady would STILL be out there late in the 4th. It's not like leaving him out there with a comfortable lead somehow EXPONENTIALLY INCREASES the injury risk. It doesn't. He's out there just as much as he would have been had it been a closer game, just like he was out there late the past 2 weeks where no injuries occured...he's just DOING HIS JOB. WHAT IF Brady got rocked in the first possession and got seriously injured? Enough with the "what ifs", they're just ridiculous. :-°
