Hard to be positive about Pats after another bad start

Curran: Hard to be positive about Pats after another bad start originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston

The New England Patriots are 0-2 for the first time since 2001. Any talk of a “moral victory” in Week 1 was put to rest following their Week 2 loss to the Miami Dolphins.

Bill Belichick’s group again was forced to dig out of an early hole. They scored only three points in the first half and didn’t find the end zone until the fourth quarter. Another week, another “too little, too late” effort from the Patriots offense.

“My inference was the Patriots are a good team. All they had to do was clean some stuff up and of course, they would. They’d tighten the screws and get back to Patriots football and being a Bill Belichick-coached team. Last year was an aberration. They would be a team that didn’t beat itself and everything that follows with it.

“After Sunday, I feel duped. Hoodwinked. A recipient of flimflammery. They’ve been outscored 33-3 to start the last two games and that’s not good. And that’s not how good teams operate. How many furious fruitless comebacks do I have to see before I realize that all these comebacks are just a mirage?”
