Should the Pats to add the DBs to stop the run or add TE to open the run?
The Pats need to stop the run in order to go deep into the play off.
Interesting, thanks for posting.
I don't even know if it would be helpful to add players to the roster who are unfamiliar with BB's offensive/defensive schemes - this late in the season, especially for a receiver/TE or dbs.
The Patriots have a weakness in the middle of both their offensive and defensive lines. Spikes and Hightower (or even Collins) is the next level to stop the run. I think it was Adrian Wilson who might have been slated to help with pass coverage and support run d?
They've added Sopoaga. Only further play will determine if he's up to the task for helping the DL position.
In addition, if you want additional help for protecting Brady and helping with run blocking - I'm not sure why Hooman can't be that person. I'd like to see more of Hooman and Gronk on the field for more power sets.
So, if the Patriots are gonna add more players....interior DL or OL might be helpful. Otherwise, I think BB is going to have to use who is on the team now.
Rkarp reported that Hooman went on I/R. Sounds like a depth signing or a look towards next year. Mulligan is a blocker as we saw how he looked on his one pass attempt...lol > Devlin can help with run blocking but not pass blocking. Need to pick up a lineman anyway if Cannon is down for a bit. 2 guys released so maybe a p/s o lineman gets promoted
Is that the case? I haven't seen anything that confirms that. Last I knew was that Hooman was not present at practice, but nothing suggested that he had been put on IR.
