Again, I missed most of the second half. Please don't hurt me. * On the play were Morris ran for a first down just before Gost's first missed fg, where was the holding on Neal? * After the first TD, I saw Mills congratulating Brady. Was he in the play anywhere? * Did Dierdorf really not see the offensive pushoff on Gay? The show a slow motion replay with the WRs two arms going up, both hands touching Blue, the arms thrusting out and Blue tumbling. I knew that was OPI in live time (and was grateful when the right call was made). That said, he was pretty tame and actually did a decent job. * I didn't see many stunts and loops by the DL, but NE's OL was much better this week. The only time anyone got near Brady was on a heavy blitz or if he held the ball for 6 full seconds. * Do people still think Morris is junk? Or even a JAG? * The start of the game was clearly a run scrimage with mixed results. While the numbers ended up pretty good, it seemed as if the plays were still sloppy. Maroney started off by dancing a little too much, but he looked good once he got warmed up. * My boy had a nice game. It still pisses me off that even Dan Dierdorf is saying that Welker might have the most impact of all NE's FAs. He used to be all mine! * Despite all the short passes in this PS, I think that NE will use the deep ball more than ever. I don't just say this because of Moss and Stallworth. It just seems as if NE is purposely not calling any deep posts or gos. * I can't stand the guy, but Delhomme had himself a nice game. He put the ball in some tight spots and was vicitmized by several drops. Did I mention that I can't stand him, though? He really just rubs me the wrong way. * Despite several three and outs, I don't think NE's starting D had a very good day. If Carolina's receivers could catch in the early part of the game, they likely would have had nice gains every time the got the ball. Of mild concern is that the Cats seemed to have consistent success working underneath on NE's LBs and safeties. The DL didn't look nearly as dominant against the better Carolina line, either. I am sure that I am forgetting something, but that's all I have for now.
