Are the Patriots heading for a Redsox-like season?
Let’s take a look at that for a moment, injuries, and underachievement does that ring a bell? Have we seen that before? You can say what you want bad calls, missed field goal, that didn’t cost the Patriots the game against the Cardinals, it was an underachieving offense which we usually don’t see until the playoffs &/or Super Bowl. I guess we are starting early this season eh…
As I have said in my pre-season blog this team does have some glaring holes, and one such hole pretty much is turning into a grand canyon type hole and that is the Offensive line which might be the worse in the league, yes even worse than the Bears O-line!
I’m wondering if Brady will survive the season, heck I’m wondering if Brady will survive the next game against the Ravens. The really sad point in this is the fact that Brady is nearing the end of his prime, and with this O-line the end may come sooner than we all thought. Another question I’ve been pondering while I was watching that abomination against the Cardinals is the Patriots offense getting too predictable? I mean there were times in that game where I thought the Cardinal defenders were in the New England Huddle.
I really feel bad for the defense which gave up only 245 yards in total offense and still lost the game. I still believe that the defense has a little more maturing to do, and we will probably see that in the next few games as well as when they play some really high-powered offense’s but so far, it has been much improved over past few seasons.
This is a reality check or a gut check or whatever you want to call it but these guys a professionals and they need to bear down or else I see a very dismal season on the horizon…
A lot of work ahead for this team…….
