You guys are a joke in your rating. Pass offense A, Rush Offense B. Except for three drives, two resulting in scores, the offense could'nt stay on the field and make a first down. Its a wounder the defense was able to hold it together with all the time they stayed on the field. While its true that this is a real turn around from last year, rating them should not be based on how bad they were last year, but what they do on the field each game. Passing game C+, Rushing game C-

You are quite right. The past few weeks we have come off the field leaving great field position far too often. At times the play calling has be a bit conservative while other times it has been very good. We may not get as many chances to get it right against the Jets. Assuming we can get past the Chiefs come Sunday. It stinks having to play the last two games on the road, I hope we can stay focused.
This Team has really hung in there to win some close one's, but now is the time to get hot are start to dominate some teams and build momentum for the playoffs. Two wins and we are in! ESPN Radio (Colin) thinks the Pat's will win the East, hope he's wrong. Glad we control our own destiny!!

pennington completed 62.3% of his passes and had a 124 pass rating. I agree that an A is too generous, but I wouldn't go down to a C for passing!

you're right, everyone keeps talking about the jets... don't look past the chiefs! we've had close games against bad teams, we don't need to look past one of them!

while i do think the offence rating is to high but what about the defence being too low. They gave up only 9 points . I dont look at 3rd down convertions or yards givin up its the points that matter and they stepped up when needed
