If the rumors are true, and I do think Chung had a bad attitude while he was rehabbing, ( twitter comments) the unfortunate part is that the Pats have no one better to play over Chung. I am disappointed that 2nd rd pick Wilson is still not ready to play more snaps. The "rumors" on Wilson are that while he is very athletic, he is still making the same mistakes he made in training camp.
While Chung apparently is done after the season, he needs to be relied upon as he 3rd rotational safety, and while Gregory has shown improvement, does anyone really trust him Either?
It's interesting about Wilson. I was disappointed to see him bite two games in a row on a double move. The first time, I figured it was just a rookie mistake. But when he did the same thing on almost the same route the very next game I wondered about his ability to recognize situations and learn. He was done as a deep safety after that, I think, and instead BB is using him mostly at the LOS to cover TEs, which he does do reasonably well.
I think, though, he's going to be given a year or two to develop and we'll see whether he gets more reliable and can go back to playing deep (though I see him more as a hybrid LB/safety who plays near the LOS in nickel formations).
Chung, I think, has shown what he is. Hard hitter, not great in coverage, not always as reliable and smart as a safety as you'd like. I sense he's on his way out. Gregory and McCourty seem to be the starters when everyone is healthy. I think the second safety position is one we still need to address in the offseason. Too bad, but we just don't have a solid starter there yet.
Yeah, too bad Brady went for 1/6 in the red zone in the game that a rookie took a shallow angle, his 4th game into his pro career. Gee, I always look to blame a rookie over the QB who makes 20 million going 1/6 in the red zone on the road with the D playing outstanding.
Otherwise, we'd have the 1 seed right now. How does an offense go 1/6 in the red zone in this era?
Again, crustr, FACTS not FICTION.
The D was outstanding, REALLY?
They gave up 2 td's in the 4th
completed as many passes deeper than 20 yards downfield today (five) as he has all season
, including the 46-yard game-winning touchdown pass to
with 1:27 left in the game.
Wilson's average pass on Sunday traveled 15.2 yards, more than twice as deep as his 7.5 average through the first five games of the season.
The O had a 2 score lead up until that point!!!!!!! Shame on them for not having a 3 score lead.
The Patriots had the lead late in the 4th quarter Sunday before the Seahawks scored the go-ahead/game-winning TD with 1:18 to play
. Including the postseason, it was the 7th time the Patriots lost a game in which it held a lead in the final 5 minutes of regulation since 2009 (T-3rd most in the NFL). Only the Redskins (8) and Dolphins (8) have more over that span.
