In response to joepatsfan111111's comment:
Aqib Talib- 2 biggest games of his Patriot career and he can't stay healthy. The moment he went out, the game changed on D. Thomas took that thing over. 2 catches for 55 on Dennard. cant blame dennard over matched there.
Tom Brady- see: inaccurate. The Edelman bomb, Collie bomb and even Dobson (i thought he had inside position on it), Vereen dump off, Edelman in the back of endzone all big misses. HE WAS GOOD, not GOAT though. that was it.
Run game- said it before and I'll say it again. BLount is boom or bust. give him the hole, best RB we have, if not.... Ridley is our best back
Pass Rushers- if Jones wants to be considered a above average or elite rusher he needs to get pressure on single blockers. he didn't do that.
Gameplan- wasn't good. BB even said it.
Positives: Jamie Collins looks legit, alotta potential there. Same with Hightower he's really turned around his season and looks good and can be great too.
Austin Collie needs a 3 year extension tmrw. guy was our best WR today outside Edelman. (amendola kinda disappointing)
Vereen & Ridley. I'm liking them next year. good 1-2 combo.
I dont think you can blame Talib for getting hurt.... You saw the play.. it happens. Also, dont discount BLount... he is clearly a weapon worth having... But soi Vereen and Ridley. ALl three are good, especially when on the same team.
Otherwise I pretty much agree with what you had to say.
