08:07 AM ET 09.20 | Though the sample size is small, the numbers are not kind to Josh McDaniels in 2013. Instead of finding a comfort zone, McDaniels has created controversy with the decision to use less [Wes Welker], and more Julian Edelman. The Pats offensive coordinator, who returned after a failed head coaching stint in Denver, and a less than successful job running the Rams offense in St. Louis, has invited more questions than pats on the back. What did he do with the NFL's second best offense? Where did it go? Why can't the league's leading receiver the past five years beat out Edelman? What is he thinking? Where is all this going?

The Patriots suck. They cheated their way to 3 Superbowls.

You're really going to try to beat that horse again? Get a freaking clue.

Anyone that thinks Josh is in charge of personnel decisions is nuts. Little Bill isnt giving him the keys to the castle. Theres nothing going on there that Bill isnt behind.

The first clue is to notice where this story comes from.

The 'journalism' is more reliable in the Enquirer.

Because the Pats actually settle down and play better after they lose a game to a team they should have beaten easily. And.....

The Boston Herald Sucks!

Thank you, Clem. I see that you are against beating a dead horse. I understand that my post is foolish, but it is intentionally so. You see, I come here once in a while, and every time there is a Jets post I see how you rube's from what I can only assume are the backwater crap parts of the country do your whole "Wait for it, wait for it" thing and then the same few nitwits post "The Jets suck" on every Jets post and then you laugh and make the same stupid remarks. Much like you just did, I've ponted out a couple of times how tired it gets, only to be told that it is too bad and I should deal with it. That's fine. Well, I think the Patriots suck. They just got beat by the Cardinals. And I think they cheated their way to 3 Superbowls, anf the NFL Commissioner agrees with me. So that is my post. But hey, you should lighten up anddeal with it.

Thank you, Debbie, for being too stupid to realize you prove my point. And when Mr. Mangler "does the honors", he will only be proving my point also.

The Jets Suck.

Im curious about the Commish agreeing with you. Did he strip them of their SB wins?

The Commissioner can't go back and strip the team of Superbowl wins. He is running a business. He fined the coach and the team a combined $1 million and destroyed the tapes he viewed without releasing them to the public. Do you think he did that because he determined they weren't cheating?

Ahhh a theory. And the office of the commissioner under the old CBA possessed the powers to alter postseason outcomes due to cheating gambling etc.

Can we just get back to the fact that whatever it is up there and Hernandez getting hurt is killing my fantasy team!

But Welker not being used in lieu of Edelman is positively baffling.

But little Bill would let him take the blame....yup up

No doubt but Welkers diminished role isnt't JMD's decision.
