    One of the X-Factors for the postseason

    One of my biggest X-Factors for the postseason is Shaun "Big Katt" Ellis. Yes, he has not produced much this season until last week and some of it is due to injury and mostly due to Andre Carter and Mark Anderson doing so well and Ellis has had a few injuries himself. With Andre Carter on injured reserve, "Big Katt" is the next man up along with Mark Anderson, Brandon Deaderick, and others. I have a feeling Big Katt is going to come up huge for the team along with others and I stil have confidence in him. I'm going to end it this post with this. Is it just me or does it seem like Shaun Ellis lost some weight? Watching Ellis on the field, he looks a lot slimmer for some reason. I don't know why but he looks like he dropped some pounds and he looks more slimmed down than he was with the jets. I guess we should call him "Slim Katt" or something.

    For me the X factor is Ridley, if he averages 4.5 yards a carry an doesnt fumble we cant be stopped from outscoring the opponent.

    Ridley / Hernadez are the biggest X factors because they need a viable RB and they will focus on taking Gronk / Wes out and Branch and Ocho aren't good enough to make a big impact consistently.

    I think the Pats will get the running game together for the playoffs.  Did everyone forget the Pats outrushed Miami last Saturday when most thought Miami would gash the D with the run and Bush?  Granted, not by much, but they did!

    That's because, as I keep saying over and over again, with this team the PASS opens up the RUN -- not the other way around.

    Also, have the Pats REALLY needed to run?  Granted, there have been occasions in which we wished they'd run more, but why? This seems more of a fan issue than a team issue as many are focused on the mantra a team HAS TO HAVE a run game to win in the playoffs.

    X factor.  Turnovers.  Pats don't lose (or hardly ever) when they win the turnover battle.

    Get the running game perfected so we can reel off 5-6 yards a pop and wear down the d-line and LBs, and take the pressure off the passing game.

    The only way we can wear a defense now is using the speeded up versin of the no huddle.

    The big X factor is getting the injured players back on the field.  Light, Mankins and Vollermer will be a big addition.  Spikes and Chung would help on the defensive side.  Vereen could also be an X factor.  Fresh legs for the playoffs.  I agree with Ellis.  He looked like a beast out there last week.  Mayo has stepped it up the last couple of weeks and Fletcher is starting to make an impact.

    For me its Ocho!

    He is the only Dynamic we didnt have last year.

    I know we have some younger backs now, but if Freddy T couldnt get ONE carry in the playoffs, what makes one think Ridley would get more than 5 carries?

    Our backs in total would be lucky to get 15 combined touches.


    As much as I would like them to run, they are tuning up that pass game for a reason. We dont know WHAT to expect from that secondary....Its hit or miss, meaning we hit the guy or miss the tackle....lol

    Re: One of the X-Factors for the postseason

    All very good points but to me the X factor is that we see 85 come alive!
    It's very strange that Ocho gets one or two looks a game despite being wide open at times.
    Reports out of practice, (Collinsworth) said 85 was really putting on a show, weeks ago, when he watched them.
    Is BB hiding him? 
    Knowing the sneaky "B" that BB is, I wouldn't doubt it one bit.

    Sorry, Jay, didn't see you just posted.

    NO prob! Glad we are in agreement. I find the one catch thing strange too.

    I think B.B.is trying to lull people to sleep and 1st play of the game in playoffs,  Boom!  Play-action, Deep to a wide open Ocho for a TD.

    Im imagine how that would open up the underneath routes after the "D" sees that...

    You are right. Only good thing about Chung possibly being out is he cant call any more fake punts!

    I think the officials have been horrible in general all year but man was I upset last week at some of the most boneheaded calls and non-calls, that one pss intierference when the ball was 3 feet over the reciever aftr he jumped for it was rediculous. But I like getting back injured players to make a big impact!

    ^ all I can say is you guys wouldnt be able to sit thru an NBA game. That is THE worse.


    Last night against the Heat it was literally 5 on 8.

    I mean they are still allowing 96 year old Dick Bavetta to run up and down and make bonehead calls!  I mean it was downright sickening. Even the announcers knew it.


    After a while it was so embarrasing that the other ref had to overide a call for Dick.


    The way they called every tick tack foul for the Heat and none for us was downright HOrrendus and Shameful.

    Wade and Bron are great enough athletes to not need help. No P.P. and we still battled and should have won if not for bad calls ALL GAME!


    I thought I missed the NBA, but I realized I DOnt!  Im gonna be sick when the NFL season is over......smh
