Let's hear it for The Hobbit. Even Peter King noticed : http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2006/writers/peter_king/09/10/mmqb.week1/6.html "Watch the replay of that Bills-Patriots game, and my guess is you would say that cornerback Ellis Hobbs was the best player on the field Sunday for New England. He shut down Lee Evans (two catches, 25 yards) and played the type of clinging coverage that's going to get him noticed as a top NFL corner if he continues." Other than turnovers, Evans and MaGahee were the two real concerns coming in and Hobbs took care of one of them mostly by himself. He referenced in one of the local papers how excited he was when he saw the gameplan that had him going wherever Evans did as opposed to staying on one side.
