Off The Bandwagon

The sun will rise, the sun will set, and Shank will trash the Patriots after a divisional round playoff loss. Shank attributes the loss to many factors, most of them of the coaching variety:

The much-hyped coaching duel morphed into Tyrannosaurus Rex vs. Grady Belichick.


The Patriots made a bad gamble on a fake punt that backfired badly before intermission and New England’s clock management in the fourth quarter had fans wondering who let Clive Rush back on the Patriots sideline.


Sometimes the Patriots are too smart for their own good. This looked like pure arrogance. And it worked out about as well as Grady Little leaving Pedro Martinez on the mound in the Bronx.
...and only one pertaining to personnel, although Shank didn't seem to have a problem with it while the Pats were winning:

...but the Jets pressured Brady and covered the Patriots corps of short receivers.
Like we were to expect something different from Shank in this situation? Not likely.
