Best Postseason Analysis Yet

I must give a hearty shout-out to Bruce Allen of Boston Sports Media Watch for providing what I feel is the most succinct and salient commentary on the New England Patriots this week.

Allen posted it on his site's Forum, a home for some good fans and funny wise guys and gals. He stated that watching the Colts-Ravens game was intensely depressing to any Pats fan. This was because comparing the performances of the Colts' offensive and defensive lines versus New England's lines the week before revealed there was no comparison. The Colts blockers, known as a superior group, thwarted the pass rush that nearly killed Tom Brady. The Colts front seven, NOT known as a superior group, shut down the Raven running game and made Joe Flacco try and win the game, which he couldn't.

I could not agree more with Bruce's thought. The really significant damage to the Good Ship Pats is all below the waterline.
