    Re: game observations

    One thing I saw (and I won't take credit for this being my observation but rather that someone said it last week) is that Hightower definitely looks better with a guy Siliga in the game eating up blockers.  What a difference Siliga makes up the middle.

    3 blown Pats coverages on backs....1 caught for TD, other 2 were drops on 4th down plays.....

    Re: game observations

    too  bad about dobson if he is going to I/R. That kind of s*cks but it was good to see Mankins return.

    Happy and Hungry., The best 2 words to describe Blount. Lets Ride him as long as we can.

    Was surpsrised to see Vareen back returning kicks but played sparingly in the offense.   

    O line played like Men and gave me confidence that maybe they can run in playoffs but make no mistake, Blount is a Beast who can probably get his regardless.

    Amendola is in the doghouse w/Brady. For someone who worked with him in offseason he sure seems to be out of sync a lot w/Brady. Edleman has been a gift in terms of him staying healthy. Without Edleman, this team doesnt make the playoffs.

    Good to see Logan outside but arrington is hurting and could use the 2 weeks off. Good play by J.Green though coming off the bench. May want to see him instead of arrington.

    Collins is gonna be a Big time Player next year. Good Pick

    As crazy as this year has been Ive never felt better about our chances in postseason except maybe in 03-04. They are a tough team with the right mindset and now we have a devastating ground attack which weve been missing since 05.

    BB is enjoying himself and it shows. He knows he has a mentally tough team that was counted out long ago and is playing with house money. I bet this is one of his favorite teams.

    I feel this team cant beat anyone and also lose to anyone. We'll see how it goes.

    Yes, it is nice to see a line backer not get blocked in the 2nd level by o linemen. Imagine a healthy VW, Kelly and Mayo playing with Hightower?  Wowser! A great collection of talent for sure.

    Re: game observations

    I didn't like when he payed a guard (Mankins) what we did, but I got to handle it to him, he's tough as hell. Guys like him are good for the locker room. When I saw him helped off the field I thought he was done because guys like him to get helped off the field unless its really bad (and maybe it is), but he came back and limped through the rest of that game.

    It will suck royally if Dobson broke his foot...we need him because there isn't much else out there. We are limping into the post season...just like we limped into every facet of this season.

    Re: game observations

    agree and like many of your assessments except for gregory. this guy cant do anything, and really... its not his fault. he's a high school player. thats his size. he has the smarts to be there to make a play but is too small to make it. cannot tackle in the open. we need a safety badly

    rkarp, Williams did look slow but, at the time, I thought it was just in comparison to the other receivers.  But then again, slow is slow.


    Glad to see Blount have the kind of day he did but I believe it is unrealistic to expect this from him on a game in, game out basis.

    Tough news on Dobson.  Really think this kid will be quite good going forward.

    Agree on Collins.  Kid's got some athleticism and seems to be picking up the system.

    Man, I hope Boyce comes back soon. As soon as Dobson went out the Bills knew that if they took out Edelman, the offense stops functioning. Lucky for us Blount came to play yesterday.

     

    We need a WR that will make teams respect the deep ball. Thompkins, Collie and Amendola aren't that WR.

    Neither was Dobson.

    Really, Brady took shots whenever Dobson was in the game and teams had to respect it. Same thing with Boyce. They don't have to bring down the passes, they just have to make a DC think they will.

     

    No one is afraid of Thompkins, Amendola or Collie.

    Re: game observations

    I was soaked from the game! It was ridiculous! Another I noticed is not only is Develin a beast (love the guy) but he is faster than I thought. Sig was a beast. Ebner looks bigger and I think he could be in play for some snaps next year. I agree with OG, Collins is gonna be huge next year.

    Agree 100 % with your assessment. Dobson's speed was evident in the Pittsburgh game and is something DC's need to game plan for. Dobson was really coming on and I felt some of his progress was curtailed by his recent injury.

    We'll just have to check the injury reports (if the Pats release anything).
