I believe the Pats have lost games before.

Only good thing about the Patriot's loss last night is that we don't have to start hearing about 'undefeated season' again. Much too distracting.

Entering this season I was wondering whether Brady would be a top 5 QB, a Top 10, or an average QB. Thinking he may be closer to average? His QBR rating is #10 but his RTG is 18th. Completion % is 16th. Your thoughts? He's still the guy I want to see with the ball in his hands in the final 2 minutes of a game and down 7 points.

Right now there are three guys - They are Brady, Brees, and Rodgers. In a year or two the trio will be Jackson, Mahomes, and Watson. Wilson is not quite with the first three, and the second three will eclipse his career.

He's the same as ever. When they were down and he actually needed to move the ball, he did. He's been average because he's not sure about the O-line and has no chemistry with his receivers so far this year. And, he's not needed to win these games, so he's trying to put the D in good situations and not force things.

He'll be fine when he needs to be.

Yea, it's a shame that neither Gordon or Brown worked out at wide receiver.

Most rushing yards goes to that cat.

Sorry. I jinxed the Patsies. I wanted Baltimore to lose so I threw in my support. That’s the kiss of death! ! :-/ ;-)

I certainly agree about the 6 QB's you mentioned, but apparently you have not watched Russell Wilson play this year! My goodness, 5 TD's yesterday and 22 TD's with only 1 interception for the season?! Go watch the game replays... he's freaking magic.

However, I sure hope Gordon works out for his new team! He's a beast.

LOL. I have to ask ... when the Chiefs and Patriots play on Dec 8 who will you be rooting for? Or do you need to wait for the standings at that time before making a call?

As much as I admire Brady and the Pats, I'll be rooting for the Chiefs. Mahome's ill be back in the saddle and it's a joy to watch Hill, Watkins, Kelce, et Al. Moore did a great job at QB and some of the plays Hill made (and the others) were simply amazing.

However, I'm sure the Pats defense will be equally amazing. Should be a great game.

I don't get to see a lot of the Seahawks. We get the Chargers, Rams and Raiders all the time, followed by Cardinals and 49's. We get more Broncos and Chiefs than 'Hawks for some reason. The early feed features the Packers, Pats, Saints, and Bears. And I follow the Ravens as much as possible.

So I don't get to see Wilson consistently making those clutch two-minute drives to seal the deal. I guess I know it happens, but the highlight reels usually show the scoring play and not all that leads up to it.

I am going to go out on a limb and predict that the NFL is going to move towards drafting more mobile QB's early like Watson and Jackson with the idea that the team has three to five years to surround a talented QB with high priced talent that compliments the QB's skill set and if it doesn't work within that time frame, then jettison the QB and find another.

Well, that is an interesting take! You may be right. But if I was an offensive coordinator (which I'm not) I would want you to run the play as called. Scrambling for good yards is a bonus in a pinch but not optimal. A great pocket passer is preferred. More yards and less wear and tear. A good offensive line brings wonders.
