Yeah, I know, it is not 56 - 0.. but, hey, Houston tried!!!
He was fantastic. Nice adjusment early. I hated how they started all finesse and it got Woodhead and Gronk hurt, but they fixed it and they should be credited on offense. Vereen was outstanding, too.
Great job by Brady. If you have to eat it, that's ok. Eat it and take the sack. Great job. Bout time they went to Ridley. I disagree with him not starting. I hate that finesse Woodhead shotgun spread. Just awful. It's almost a blessing Woodhead got hurt because it shows what NE's O does without that crutch.
The D was outstanding today again within the gameplan. They took out Foster and the motion on D flustered Scahub and Co. Love this D. Everyone is just thrilled with this D unless you're a Ballwasher here.
Daniels, Foster, Tate, Forsett, Graham. Johnson, Walter, etc, really did nothing. The refs really did a number on the Pats D tonight. It was disgusting to watch.
Our attempt to spread the field early had nothing to do with Gronk or Woody's injuries. They just happened, and an offensive philosophy had nothing to do with them.
Also disagree that Woody's injury led to a change in offensive philosophy. They basically just plugged Vereen in and he had a huge game.
The shotgun spread and their ability to isolate Vereen had a lot to do with their offensive success today.
All that said, good job by Ridley and the offensive line to run the ball.
