    I have been all over Light this year, and particularly for the poor performance in the previous Jets game where he was eaten up and looked like he didn't know which way to turn.

    Well, ol' #72 looked that adversity in the eye today and really had an impressive performance. His run blocking looked authoritative and Brady had some excellent protection all day long.

    Way to go, Matt. You deserved the criticism this year, but you also deserve the pats on the back for a very good performance today.

    How much help did he have from the TE on his side?

    it's funny how they go to the power I and always run elft with maroney wih evans blocking.

    light will surely have his hands full next week. he was good today as was the entire o-line, and protectors.

    I was watching for it a few times, it looked like Graham and Thomas were setting up mostly on the right. But, yes, they may have been giving Light help.

    In addition, there was help from Evans and Faulk.

    I am not dissing Light; he had a fine game. I am pointing out that have healthy blocking TE's helps a lot, as well as using a blocking RB from time to time.
