In response to MattC05's comment:
Their best short yardage back was inactive today. Blount is TERRIBLE in short yardage, and Bolden only marginally better. Cinci's front 7 is REALLY good, as was evident by their constant pocket collapsing, and in short-yardage situations all day, the O line was getting no push.
If Brady cared about his TD streak, the FIRST play from the 1 would not have been Blount losing a yard by running directly into Solder's backside.
Bolden, Develin FB, Hooman in motion, 4 handoffs to Bolden until you score. Simple.
Bolden is clearly our best short yardage back or Develin himself, for that matter. Ridley is not a great short yardage guy. He isn't.
You cannot deny how bad Brady was today and the concern of him chasing that TD streak, which is why we just lost.
I question why the passing from the 1/2 yard line. Is it because he wanted to secure the TD streak?
Read your post over again...Bolden, Develin FB, Hooman! LOL! Those are the players Belichick surrounded our hall of fame quarterback with! Wow, just wow. I imagine he was too busy building our defensive line to notice...well we all know how that's working out. Hey I hear they are opening up defensive tackle try outs to CVS employees...now is your chance old chum:)
