In response to IrishMob7's comment:
Brady and Edelman share player of the game. Just an absolutely brilliant effort from those two as well as many others and the coaching staff. Gutsy win fellas
Collins, Arrington, Talib and Chandler on the defensive side also came up huge. Arrington was an absolute terror on Welker, and Collins was every bit the "coverage" linebacker this board has been calling for for 4-5 years.
Completely agree. A lot of the time a defense is forgotten when your team comes back in such dramatic fashion. The D has to continue to hold as the O continues to score; that's why comebacks like this are unheard of. Very rare to see a team just all of a sudden click on both sides of the ball.
Collins played fantastic all night. I was glad to see BB let him loose a little bit. He let him rush the passer a few times and he looked good dropping back into coverage. He has the size of a safety and LB in one body which I'm sure Bill is drooling over. A lot of potential in that young man. Fletcher is another who played great. Maybe this will light a fire under Hightower's azz to wake the F up and start playing like the freak that he is.
Arrington, a constant scapegoat on this team, played great. When CBs names aren't mentioned, people don't seem to acknowledge that they had a good game. It's a good thing when you don't hear much from your secondary players. We didn't hear Welker's name all night because Arrington was brilliant.
Overall, very solid gameplan delivered and executed by the D. I still have my doubts on the DLine, but if other guys can step up and make up for their deficiencies, we have a real shot.
