For those of us who didn't get to see the game live, how did Cannon look protecting TFB?
It sounds like "he did good."

After Manikins goes down with a knee injury on the 1st quarter, the OL goes Solder, Thomas, Connolly, Waters, Cannon. Pretty rough in the 2nd quarter as Brady faced consistent pressure, but after half they settle down, provide very good protection and establish the run with Ridley. A few breakdowns but pretty solid especially on the outside with Cannon and Solder as Wake is a nonfactor in the 2nd half. With Connolly getting his first start in over a month and Cannon and Thomas seeing their first extended action of their careers, and Solder going the distance at LT, I'd give them all game balls.
As usual, they used a "3rd tackle" alot, but he was left on an island (against Wake) for a good percentage of the plays. Like many are saying, they improved drastically in the 2nd half. Overall, I would say the O-line today was average for an NFL O-line; which, considering the circumstances, was an A+ in my opinion. I mean, Waters was the only original season starter for most of the game.
For awhile there in the 1st half, I had a flashback to the '07 SB with the way the O-line was diminished.
