Studs of the Game:

  • Wes Welker
  • Aaron Hernandez
  • Danny Woodhead

Duds of the Game:

  • Secondary
    • PatriotsInsider from Twitter made note that “starting DBs are in the game. That’s the 3rd string Detroit offense scoring on them”. Arrington couldn’t cover a rock, McCourty was getting burned, and Butler was average.
  • Offensive Line
    • Tom Brady was hit, hit, and hit even more. Not a good day for the line.
  • Refs
    • I could swear the refs where wearing Lions uniforms out there

Players Who Helped Themselves:

  • Julian Edelman
    • Mike Petraglia called Edelman a “one-man attitude adjustment for the Patriots”
  • Mathew Slater
    • Slater didn’t hurt his chances and he did have a good catch, so in a game which had a lot of duds, Slater look good (shutters)

Players Who Didn’t Help Themselves:

  • Darius Butler
  • Kyle Arrington
    • Couldn’t cover a rock
  • Devin McCourty
  • Nate Solder
  • Sebastian Volmer
  • Chad Ochocinco
    • I keep hearing Joey Galloway’s name come up in the same breath as Ochocinco’s

Other Thoughts:

  • Brandon Tate is now the odd man out
  • Danny Woodhead didn’t look like he was still suffering from the hit during the Bucs game last week
  • Wes Welker can tackle, but can also injure himself
  • My rage meter hit a high during the game and forced my to walk away for a bit
  • Didn’t the Lions go 4-0 the season they went 0-16… ;)

Note: Sorry for the lack of videos and photos like I normally have in posts like these… There wasn’t many that came out of this game
