    Hi all, don't have sunday ticket and i'd love to know 2 things from today's game.. We played New England last week...

    1) Antonio Gates is my Fantasy Football TE, and he had 0.00 points, did he play? injured? how did he not get any catches?? what happened?

    2) It seems the New England Tight Ends killed you guys as well (Gronkowski + Hernandez) with 3 TD's, what happened exactly anything other than the LB's couldn't cover them? They killed us the same way, would love some insight on their tight end attack against you guys....

    Thanks and good luck on the season, I know you guys will do alot better than we will this year, Fins SUCK!

    Suck For Luck 2012 is our motto in Miami lol...

    1) He played, he was a non factor
    2) I think its basically the same as what happened to you guys minus the fact we've had trouble covering TEs for a while

    it seems Norv does not adjust to anything. Gates was taken out of the game by the Patriots coverage, and it looked like Norv was more worried about running the ball.

    At first he was harrassed but late in the third he was talking with the team doctor. I'm guessing hi toe is bothering him. Most of us on this site think this is going to be a career long nagging injury. He'll play and have good games but I don't think he's ever going to be an every game monster like he used to be.

    Covering the TEs? Giant athletic players + Bellichick scheming + team that has trouble coving TEs = 3 TDs

    The Chargers rushed Merriman back and we see what happened. We rushed Gates back and we see whats happened. The Bills let Merriman heal. Should we have let Gates heal?

    Well, turning the ball over 4 times like we did will NOT get you a win against the Pats.

    Gates was covered really well today. But he was talking with a team doctor later in the game. Guess we'll find out why soon.

    Gates was did not have a great game at all.

    New Englands Offense isn't all that and it can be beat. It's just that the Pats own us and know exactly were to beat us. That and were the Chargers for crying out loud.

    Perhaps Rivers should ask Brady for some lessons in strategic game-playing. Brady isn't the reason your team lost.
