Did the offensive coordinator just phone it in? It has been a very long time since I have seen such misuse of talent by the offensive coordinator. And yes, Josh had bad days, but not for lack of trying. We used the same offensive formation for all but one play. We underused the running game and except for one play didn't use 2 TE's. We have an injured, recovening quarterback who we expect to pass 50 times a game. ====================================================== You'd never know that we have the following improvements from 2008: 1) Maroney back healthy. 2) Watson back healthy. 3) The addition of Taylor. 4) The addition of Baker 5) The addition of Matthews. ========================================================= Sure, we have Galloway instead of Gaffney, but the reality is that Galloway is a much better player, takes TWO defenders down the field with him, and he runs about a 4.3 Sure, we had ONE key player out. But Edelman did a fine Welker imitation and Moss has also looked great over the middle. ===================================== Where's the real patriot offense? Where are the screens and draws and dump offs to running backs. Where are the two tight end sets. Where are the runs? I do understand that Brady is not effective deep. That is a problem that can be corrected later in the year, or not. We've won Super Bowls without Brady being effective deep. We've also won games with Brady as gunslinger, with a running back and two tight ends protecting the franchise. ====================================== Other than the lack of a fullback, the front office has given the offense all it could have hoped for.
