    1st half analysis

    Ocho Cinco is lucky to have 4 million guaranteed or he'd be cut. Our receivers are lacking a deep threat (unless Price comes through).

    Thank god for Hernandez and Gronk. And Welker too...what happend to Branch? Tate is as good as gone.

    Needles to say Suh is pretty good and our right guard is pretty average.

    Brady wouldn't have gotten killed so much if we had more than two healthy backs (one of which is a 5 foot tall third down specialist).

    Mark Anderson and Carter came back down to earth, if I'm Aderson I don't put a deposit down on a condo in the area. You look at Detroit's defense and you see why we changed our philosophy a bit, time for Haynesworth and Ellis to get out there.

    The defense misses Fletcher.  

    Our safeties are going to be a problem. I love Chung, but he has got serious problems in coverage. I don't think Stafford completes three passes over 30 yards if Bodden is out there. 

    We needed a game like this, too much sunshine has been fed up their rear ends the past two weeks.

    Re: 1st half analysis

    Ocho will take more time to get acclimated, this offense is light years ahead of Cincys and old habits die hard...I agree with you that a true deep threat isn't on the roster, whether you need one is another argument all together.

    The O-Line was horrid, just horrid.  Very few pass plays where the interior and exterior blocked in synch, no energy and couldn't match lions talent+aggressiveness 

    Anderson's whiffed sack was brutal, Carter hasn't shown much but I haven't seen him on the field as much, maybe the coaches want to get a longer look at some of the bubble players

    I agree with the safeties, Chung is a force playing downhill but in coverage he's always a step slow (it's not an atheletic issue, maybe he just doesn't have that 'feel' for playing in space).  Meriweather hasn't really shown up today, but playing as deep as he tends to I wouldn't immidiately say that's a bad thing.

    Yeah I agree Carter hasn't been on the field much and I'm not concerned with him anyways, he's a proven commodity and pass rushers have off nights. Anderson is the one that I'm worried about, he provided nothing, which was surprising..and he played an awful lot.

    The facts are if you can't protect Brady, they'll be no championships. Just like with the jets last year in he playoffs and the giants in the super bowl. maybe the league has scar's # now. That was pathetic. Brady looked to me like he's hurt his shoulder or something, he threw about 3 in the dirt. Hope welker.s ok. How many of you want to cut edelman now, or maybe tate looked good to you running back kicks? edelman's a player, tate's a doofis.

    Re: 1st half analysis

    Nah every now and then Tom has series/games where he misses low, I've never figured out why but i'd rather that than his miss be high; getting the WR killed in the process.....A ball in the dirt has never ended worse than an incomplete pass.  Now the pass protection.....bad bad bad

    I think if they had Vareen or Ridley playing it would of helped against the rush, we pretty much had to throw it on every down and they new it. We've got good tackles and the highest paid guard in the league. I think Koppen has slowed down a bit the last two years and of course our right guard got man handled by Suh. Give them credit, they've got a good defense and gave us all we could handle last year. 

    If Welker is seriously injured, we are in trouble...he makes this offense go. Is it just me or does Brady have a "I don't want to be here" look on his face every time he's on the sideline? There was a time when he couldn't hide the excitement on his face...been a long time since I've seen him like that.

    Re: 1st half analysis

    A good pass rush eats this O-line alive. I have 2 questions:

    1) Would a real RB/Running game help?  BJGE wasn't getting it done.

    2) Would better play calling help?  None of these long developing gimmick plays against a monster rush.  Quick hit plays and more TE passes (like the Jets do).

    It was a bad game. The running game that you saw tonight, is not the one that you will see with our backs healthy. In my opinion we are a better team than last year. The receivers worry me a bit and our line can't play like that, but the Lions front seven do that to a lot of teams. The Lions better of enjoyed their night, because as good as their front seven was...this team has some major problems as well. They have a QB that will not make it out of October, no running backs, one receiver. Yeah they made us look bad, but half of our team wasn't there.

    The O-Line needs to improve.

    Here is an interesting stat, in Tom Brady's first 8 playoff games, he was sacked 12 times....in his last 3, he has been sacked 13 times.

    I watched a lot of the first half last night and I will tell you what worked for your team were those short passes.  It gave the receivers a chance to run after the catch, and welker is slippery and always gets yac, Hernandez looks tall and fast, and gronkowski looks like a big target who can run over people.
