    WOW!!!
    That was the most impressive display ive seen in a long time. If the boys can give brady that much time then he'll find Randy all season long! :rocker:
    Great start boys!

    O-Line was HUGE today, Jets weren't near Brady.

    Brady had time to check down all 4 of his options most of the day.

    What Brady lacked in receiver talent, the team made up for in the O-line. I know Manning has a low drop back to sack ratio, but it seems like Brady has had a lot of really good protection throughout his career. Anyone have his ratio?

    In all seriousness, that is the ONE of the best, IF NOT THE BEST!.....That I have ever seen this O line play!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! GREAT FRIGGIN POST MAN....because 99.9% of the time no one thinks about the work/play of the O line.....but it is absolutely CRUCIAL obviously, and today....they were the epitome of what an O line should be.....and a key to the win today.....NOW, there is still work to do....such as opening holes consistently for the RB's....because on several I don't think it was the "I don't know....should I hit the hole now" crap that Maroney has been stereotyped with all the time today...I thought quite often the holes were only there for a millisecond before closing and not giving LoMo the time he needs to DO WHAT HE DOES NEXT which is.....hitting that second gear that leaves defensive players with their jocks around their ankles.........!!! Anyways...CONGRATS to the OLINE play today......it was a definite key to the game.......they were AWESOME!!! GO PATS!!!

    The Jets don't have a legitimate pass rusher, but the O-Line was awesome today Next week will be a legit test with the Shawn's coming to foxboro

    Congrats to the Big Uglies!!!

    My main concern going into the game today was the OL. They are a solid group but didn't always look that way in the pre-season. They need to get credit for a great game.:rocker:

    The funniest line I've read today was from a Jets fan. "Brady had so much time today, he could impregnate 3 women and still hit Moss."

    I hope the the OL has the same type of play all year long.

    Yeah, I hope this is a sign of a trend in the O-Line.

    If it happens again next week I am going to get fired up for sure.

    They don't need to be perfect, just consistent. That is all Brady really needs is some confidence in what those guys are going to do from week to week.

    The Oline was outstanding! No doubt it helped having a few receiving threats for the jets D to worry about! It's all about balance, and boy do we have it in spades this year!

    Can't have more than one thread about the job the OL did today, I guess.

    Just so.

    My key before the game was that the O-line had to be On.
    If they achieve consistency
    at this level of excellence ...
    well, the imagination runs amok.

    It is good be surprised. I was by Gaffney; you were by the OL. This is a GREAT OL, one of the top 6 in football. And the backups play TE, both Hochstein and O'Callaghan; unbelievable! This saves a Game Day roster spot for the 5th WR.

    Re: Congrats to the Big Uglies!!!

    That brings up a great point......I have no doubt the O-Line played great today. But does anyone have a stat on how much the Jets had more than 4 men rushing Brady today. I don't remember the Jets blitzing much.

    Could it be what we all expected with the deep threat of Moss and Stallworth keeping the Safeties and to some extent the linebackers from creeping up to the line of scrimmage today.

    Last year without any wideout threats....defenses could tee off on Brady.....and just as we expected....defenses can't do that now.

    *huge* props to the O line. There were times it looked like time stood still when Brady was getting ready to throw.

    Agreed. Brady read the NY Times Sunday edition twice while siting in the pocket. . . . . . . . .
