Foot off the neck almost failed us again.

I think Shanahan ignores what I think is the blueprint to win games in the modern era. Led by NE, is that you don't think a lead is safe up 21-6 at the end of the first half. We got the ball back with 2 minutes left and timeouts, yet we ran Morris up the gut to milk timeouts.

That is old school playing not to lose, but when your defense sucks, I think you have to try and score every drive. Late in the 2nd half, sure milk em of the timeouts up 2 scores. 1st half, why take the foot off the gas?

Shanny may have the most dynamic or dare i say one of the best offenses in the league, and QB. Special teams and D, not so much. But he isn't coaching like he does.

NE would have opened in their 2 minute drill, and have had tampa on their heels before the first snap. Knowing calling a TO will probably aid Brady more than themselves. While they didnt score, I feel like we lost the momentum, and didnt score again for 2 quarters, until the final kick.

Which, of course, almost missed.
