Sherman: Patriots run 'gimmick' offense

Seahawks defensive back Richard Sherman took a few shots after the game at Tom Brady and the Patriots via Twitter. He also had plenty to say about the New England offense, telling the News-Tribune after the game that the Patriots “are running this gimmick, hurry-up stuff. You don’t do that in the NFL. ... It’s not effective because there are great defenses out there.”

Sherman, who helped spearhead the No. 1 defense in the league to a 24-23 win over the Patriots on Sunday, also apparently kept up a running dialogue with Brady during the game.

“I kept saying I’m going to get that next time,” Sherman said of his in-game conversations with the Patriots...

Branch on M&M: 'Back to the drawing board'

Patriots wide receiver Deion Branch made his weekly appearance with Mut & Merloni on Monday afternoon, a day after New England's disappointing 24-23 loss to the Seahawks.

"It was a tough one," Branch said. "We went out and played pretty good in the first half. The second half it just wasn't the type of football we want to put out on the field. Overall, we had so many chances to win the game and put the game away, and we didn't."

Added Branch: "I think overall we had a pretty good plan going into the game. We've just got to do a better job of finishing the game, scoring points in the red area."

This marks the third time this season the Patriots had a victory in their grasp only to let it slip away by making key mistakes down the stretch. Branch assured Patriots fans that the team will solve that problem.

"We don't want people to start getting all frantic," he said. "We're going to go...

Branch: Pats left too many points on field
By: DJ Bean

Patriots receiver Deion Branch joined Mut & Merloni Monday, saying the Patriots simply failed to execute down the stretch in their 24-23 loss to the Seahawks on Monday. 

"We had so many chances to put the game away and we just didn't," he said. 

The Patriots were just 1-for-6 in the red zone Sunday, with their failure to get points from in close allowing the Seahawks to hang around long enough to earn a come-from-behind victory in the fourth quarter.   

"We left a lot of points on the field, to be honest with you," Branch said. "We left a lot of points."

Added Branch: "It wasn't confusion, it was all a lack of execution. Lack of execution, that's all. That's what it was." 

Tom Brady notably missed and underthrew receivers at various points throughout the game, perhaps due to the ball being harder or slippery because of the rainy weather in Seattle. Branch said...

Rex: I think we're going to beat Patriots

Rex Ryan kicked off a week of pregame hype when he said Monday he's confident his Jets can upset the Patriots.

“I just think that I want [the Patriots] to know… and they know that I think we’re going to beat them,” Ryan told reporters on Monday. “I recognize that they’re a great football team and [Bill] Belichick’s a great coach. I’ve never once said that he wasn’t. But again, we’re not going to back down or concede anything.

“They’re going to get our best shot and we know we’re going to get theirs,” he added. “It really doesn’t matter who says what. But we are going to be ourselves. We’re coming there to take our swing. We’ll see if we land...

Esiason on D&C: Pats' performance 'a fiasco'
By: Mike Neff

CBS Sports NFL analyst Boomer Esiason made his weekly Patriots Monday appearance with Dennis & Callahan to talk about the Pats' 24-23 loss to the Seahawks and other news from around the NFL.

“What a fiasco!” Esiason said of Sunday's game in Seattle. “It was an offensive game in which you ran up 475 yards on the supposedly No. 1 defense in football, you were only sacked once and Tom Brady inexplicably threw 58 passes. … I don’t know how you explain a game like that and how you lose a game like that that late, giving up 14 points in the fourth quarter.”

Esiason said that the blame shouldn’t be placed solely on Brady, who completed 36-of-58 passes for 395 yards, but also on decisions like the play call at the end of the first half.

“When you’re asked to make 58 decisions in a game, somewhere along the line you’re going to make some mistakes,” Esiason said....
