Why is Gresham a waste of time?

Seems like quality player

Dalton was miserable today ,, Only one to blame is him for todays loss

Pretty much how i see this as well

Pats will tear them down just like they did during week 14. Ravens are the team that scared me the most so I'm glad we won't have to deal with them.

Before we put the Patriots in the AFC Championship Game, once upon a time Mark Sanchez and the New York Jets beat them after losing in Foxboro 45-3 the month before

Congrats, you covered AJ Green and held Andy Dalton and won by 6 points.

I'm sure you'll have just as much success playing against 4 Greens, a better running back, and one of, if not the best playoff QBs ever.

See you in Foxboro.

Unless the Week 16 team shows up. That...would be bad.

Gresham is an underacheiver, especially for being a 1st round pick. He should be on the level of guys like Graham, Davis, and Gronk, especially for this offense to succeed.

It's not in the pocket but Pats should be the favorite no matter how you look at it

Dalton certainly needs more help. But if he didn't play like Sanchez, the Bungles likely pull this game out.

Anyhow, I wouldn't be shocked in the least if Houston manages to "shock" New England next week.

And the Cardinals beat them early on as well though that was a close game. I guess it depends on who shows up or not. The Texans offense or the Pats secondary? We shall see.

In the Divisional Round of the playoffs, the number one seed plays the team with the lowest ranking and the number two plays the other team.

1st seed vs lowest remaining seed
2nd seed vs highest remaining seed

That way, the Bengals can never play the Patriots, since they are the 6th seed and always the lowest remaining seed.

I will say the game ended strong but that wasn't a good game today at all. For comparison, last year's Saints/49ers game was epic. This game was a soozefest.

As bad as Dalton played today he needs more weapons. Texans shut down Green in the 1st half and Bengals didnt cross midfield until late 2nd quarter.

I cant imagine Houston's secondary playing any worse then they did in the first matchup with NE. how many guys were just left wide open. I expect Houston to step up and play better D. Will it matter? probably not. Escpecially if Houston continues to not finish drives.
Houston is going to have to slow the game down and run the ball. If they get behind by 2 scores forget about it.

This. If the Texans can come up with an effective defensive game plan, they could slow down the Pats enough to pull away early and win the game, just like the Jets did in 2010.

We'll likely have Dennard and Talib back, so the secondary should be adequate and an healthy Gronk should help an already great offense. The Pats are the favorites, but it won't be easy at all. The Texans have the ressources to beat us. I'm optimistic, but not over-confident.

I thought Green was not great in the game. His routes on the interception asnd the overthrow were lazy. Dalton should have been better but Gresham did him no favors and Green also should have been better. Gruden deserves some blame, too. Didn't ever feel like there was a "plan."

It's hard not to like the matchup of a healthy Gronk/Hernandez combo against the Texans' beat up linebacking corps.
