Passing isnt being greedy, it is playing to the advantage that you have.
Sure, in theory grinding down the clock and keeping the ball away from brady is a good idea, but in practice it doesnt work. The Pats can score just as many points with 25 mins of possession as they can with 35, so keeping the ball away from brady isnt gonna work if we cant score ourselves.
Also, are ryan fitzpatrick and rookie russel wilson really that great? Fitzpatrick, who sucks btw, put up 350 and 4tds, the problem was he threw 4picks and the Bills defense was awful.
We have to be able to throw the ball to win, bottom line, and Sunday is a perfect example of why.
If the Pats don't possess they can't score. See yesterday. See Ravens see Cards.
You can run on them. The Jets can run. Sanchez still is one of the worst passers in the league. Let him hand off and pass once in a while.
Don't screw things up by being cute. Or thinking more than you are. That's when thing get fouled up.
