In response to TFB12's comment:
Deep threat is key to the run game. Spread that defense with a deep threat.
You know absolutely nothing about football and I even question if you started watching our team in 2001. I think it's 2007.
I really do.
I think you bandwagoned over here when Moss and Welker arrived and you were so googly eyed with the fireworks that offense put up, you jumped on the bandwagon.
You freaked out when BB dealt Moss and Welker like a 12 year old girl and now you say "deep threat is a 'key' to the run game"?
When did this happen? A key to a run game is actually attempting to establish a run, blocking, who your RB is and what their skill set is, and consistency within that. THAT is the key and the only key to a run game.
Randy Moss streaking down the fright flank over and over in 2009 did nothing for our run game in 2009.
Finally, we had no deep threat in 2010 and BJGE reeled off 1000 yards in 12 games as a a lead back, which is actually superb.
If you hit a 1,000 yards in 1972 as an Rb before a 16 game season came into effect, for example, that was a huge deal.
Please stik to your photoshopping. Seriously. You're becoming incredibly annoying.
Dude! Have you ever even played the game? I think not! I think you are a arm chair GM, Coach, and player!!
LOL at you bringing up RB's in 1972!! Seriously??? 1972? The game has changed since 1972! Hell, the game has changed since the last time the Pats won a SB.
Say what you want about when I became a Pats fan, I told you when and why I became a Pats fan but heck, that doesn't even matter. It's football! Doesn't matter who you are a fan of, if you have been involved in football for a long period of time and understand the game then it doesn't matter who you are a fan of. What a lame argument you make by always bringing that up. Hell, I have probably been involved in football longer then you have SO go get your shine box....PAL!
You will not have a whole lot of success running the ball against the better defenses if you don't spread the defense out. You need a legit deep threat to spread the defense out. It doesn't get more simple then that. Laurence Marony had 835 yards rushing in 13 games in 2007. LAURENCE MARONY for crying out loud! His most productive season and he only played 13 games, and we are talking about LAURENCE MARONY here!! Thanks to Randy Moss and his deep threat! That's what a deep threat does for you. BTW, greatest regular season ever!! Moss had a great season, Welker had a very good season, Marony had a very good season, everyone had a good season thanks to having a legit deep threat to spread defenses out. And don't forget, that SB 2007 was gift wrapped with a big red bow by deep threat Randy Moss until BB and his defense couldn't stop the Giants in their last drive of the game. Pathetic!
People argue... well the Pats did good after they let Moss go!! Give me a break! What a lame argument! Without a deep threat all teams had to do was play the mid to short game, which is all the Pats had since their deep threat was gone and that's exactly what Rex Ryan and the Jets defense did in the playoffs. Put everyone in the box, play the mid to short game which is so much easier to stop the run playing like that.
A legit deep threat truly spreads the defense which opens up the run game and opens up everything. Been the Pats problem since letting Moss go! What part of this don't you understand?
