    Re: Offensive Opportunities

    Those stats are a touch off. BRady has only lost one fumble on the season, and he has been sacked 26 times. 

    That is an alarming number. He was sacked 27 times all of last season, and 32 times the season prior. He may eclipse his highest sack total, 2001, when he was brought down 41 times.

    This really underscores the systemic issues NE was having early this season, as most of those sacks coincide with the missed time for Gronkowski and Amendola. It also really shines a light on how effective the offensive line really is when it is required to actually block and all the passes aren't coming out so quickly.

    I also think it is related to how tentatively BB has used Ridley this season.

    I've been looking for hits, sacks, hurries/pressures on Brady for this season vs. last season. Haven't been able to find anything yet

    Amendola = 0 Drops

    He catches the ball very well, but he hasn't had a ton of opportunities due to time missed with injuries.  I'll like his sample size better after he has had about 70 passes thrown his way.

    I distinctly remember a pretty bad one.  Not saying he drops a lot.  In fact, I think he's pretty sure handed.  But I can clearly remember at least one, so the stat doesn't seem accurate to me.

    only played 50% games so far. once he gets 140+ targets we will be able to compare that ratio... discuss:
