Look I already made a post similar to this, but my statements are following through. I just posted a comment on the key matchups with the following write up, but I felt it deserved more attention. So here it is:
Man I couldn’t have said it any better myself. I look at a few of our games and think we are way better then scores and results show for.
Take the first Jets game for example:
2 fakes on 4th down and a bad pass interference call really affected the blowout it should’ve been.
Now the Saints game:
you mention all of the facts in this one, but take away an obvious fumble into the endzone which resulted in a serious momentum killer for us and you have a different outcome in my opinion.
Now this past week Jets game:
They didn’t show on AFN (Armed Forces Network) this week so I was only to measure the stats - shout out to Mr. Medic, he knows whats up here!
I think a lack of offensive production is a result of the two kickoff returns for TDs – this also didn’t provide for any rest on defense – so given that alone I think that made the game closer than it should’ve been.
Going into this game I think we are going to once again beat the odds. We have nearly beat the two best teams in the league (Colts and Saints – only two undefeated teams still) and one of which I think we should’ve won despite the refs contributions. The Pats have yet to play anyone to really prove their record in my opinion. They got beat by the Jets for heavens sake. Lets be serious here people, at the beginning of the season Matty said all we have to do is match our division rivals and that is about to go down. The Pats are looking at playing us, New Orleans and the Colts in the next few weeks. So although the have the division lead right now they are about to play the toughest part of their schedule while we are heading into some of our easier game finally.
Lets not panic everyone, if we win this week the AFC East still comes through MIA!!!!!! And not to think of the possible bad outcome, but even if we are to split against the Pats with a lose they are still in a tough situation with their upcoming games!
