There were some comments earlier concerning whether the Pats 'problems' with the passing attack was because the receivers were not getting open which was causing Brady to not be able to complete passes. It's actually probably difficult to draw a whole lot of conclusions from this game because the two halfs were so different. The second half surely was no problem. 7 of 11 for 160 yards including passes of 34 yards to Watson, 24 yards to Caldwell, and 23 yards to Graham. If they had this kind of production for both halfs in future games, that would be a pretty solid passing game and we wouldn't have any worries at all. The first half was a hodge-podge. Draw you own conclusions I guess. 1-13:xx - Brady had 3.15 seconds before he passed incomplete to Caldwell and there was no pressure. 1-12:59 - Brady had 2.5 seconds with no pressure and hit Watson who blew the catch 1-12:55 - 3 step drop and quick out to Watson. No pressure 1-10:47 - Brady had 3.0 seconds and got the TD to Brown. No pressure. 1-3:02 - Triplett came free to Brady - incomplete pass. This was pretty ridiculous by the way. 2 TEs stayed in so there were 7 blockers on the line and Triplett came through basically untouched. The left DE was triple teamed and the right DT and right DE were both double teamed. Let's see - that's all 7 blockers used up on 3 DLmen. Ooops. 1-2:54 - Brady had 3.0 seconds but then had his pass batted. TE and RB released so only 5 OL blocking. I would have to wonder if Brady read the coverage right. With the coverage, he had the RB wide open coming ouf of the backfield. 2-9:13 - Brady had 2.7 seconds. Light blew his block on Sobel and Sobel batted Brady's screen pass. 2-9:10 - Brady had 2.5 seconds. Light blew a cut block on Sobel so he was in on Brady. Only 5 OL blocking. Brady threw the ball into the ground. 2-7:21 - Brady had 2.8 seconds. Ball tipped by Sobel AGAIN. Caldwell probably had good pattern on 10 yard out and very possibly could have made the catch. 2-7:16 - Quick screen pass to Maroney - incomplete (almost a fumble) 2-7:11 - Shotgun. Brady had 3.0 seconds and was flushed and then sacked. Only 5 OL blocking. 2 TEs and RB released. Poor team blocking by Neal and O'Callaghan. 2-0:27 - Shotgun. Screen. Really outstanding play by Triplett to read the screen and drop back a little to tip the pass. I guess my take is mostly that you can't tell if the receivers were getting open because of the poor OL blocking and probably Brady not picking shorter outlets in response to the ability of the Buffalo D-line to get pressure on him. Other folks might have a different judgment.
