    Matthew Slater - Goal Line Run Blocker

    They've done this before on the goal line, but if you haven't noticed before, check out Matthew Slater's block to open the hole for Develin and Blount on the first TD. It's clear why Belichick loves this guy.

    Good find.  Slater might be a role player, but he is really f'ing good at what he does.  Beast.

    Pretty cool, makes sense he's by far the best blocking WR on the team, he had a great season, was by far the best gunner in the NFL this year.  He also is the one that verbalizes the after game pray, noticed after the game pats and colts players alike.

    I wonder how Edelman and Danny A. do with run blocking.  Hard to tell from the regular tv feed.  Sometimes the reason for success of a running game is blocking by the WRs.  It would be interesting if, on top of all his other skills, Edelman was a great blocker.  Clearly Develin and Hooman are excellent, highly motivated, blockers.

    On replays I always see Edleman scrapping hard on run plays. Whether or not he is considered a good blocker I have no idea but he puts the effort in, Welker did too. Slot receivers have to do the dirty work I guess.

    I've seen Amendola lay the wood on several running plays and I'm sure Edelman isn't afraid of hitting his own momma if the has to.

    His father is in the Hall of Fame for being a beast of an offensive lineman.

    It is difficult to tell on run plays but I did notice when they run the WR quick throw/screen to Edelman and DA is on the same side he is very good at clearing out his guy.

    I've seen some pretty nice blocks by Edelman.  Here's one that sprung Ridley for a 25 yard gain (Edelman is the guy blocking to Ridley's right.  See Develin--to Ridley's left--and Thompkins--further to the right--blocking well down field too).
