In response to wozzy's comment:
Oh my god, Oline is now our weakness..?
With injuries to Gronk, Wilfork, Mayo, Talib, Amendola, Vereen and a bevy of rookie receivers, the weakness we should be worrying ourselves sick over now is O Line?
It couldn't be that the Jests defensive tackles were big and good, or the Saints, it has to be that we sux...
Get a grip, worry about who is going to play DT this week, who is covering Mayo's production, will Talib be back...
To be fair I've never been a fan of an undersized center like Wendell, always thought Connolly should start at center and Cannon or Kline should start at guard but the offense hasn't played well, it isn't only the receivers, the O Line, Brady or McDaniels, it's all of the above.
^ this is certainly true ... it's a bit of everything.
But modern NFL offenses are so orchestrated. This thing isn't going to function well until everyone is healthy and gets to practice together as a unit.
It's not as simple as putting it on Brady, or the new WRs or the OC or the line, or Ridley (who hasn't shouldered enough blame for spotty, inconsistent running when the team needs him to step up).
The issue IS a personell issue, which, like Prolate intimated, has had a ripple effect altering everyone's timing.
