The current team is in the playoff hunt at the half way point. It is time to see what might be done to improve, and to maximize the chances of getting into the playoffs. SPECIAL TEAMS 1) Who should return kicks and punts? This is certainly a place where we might improve. OFFENSE 2) Should we see more from Ridley and Vareen in the running game, with Ben-Jarvis and Woodhead getting fewer reps (or the the same)? This is part of the decision whether to try to depend more on the running game. 3) Is it time to give up on Brady and Ochocinco ever being able to be on the same page? 4) Is it time for Belichick and Brady to discuss Brady's tendency to deciding too quickly with regard to whom to throw to. For example, it seems that Hernandez could be used more. DEFENSE I see no questions under Belichick's control. The lack of talent and depth at FS, coverage LB and FS are choices Belichick made long ago and now must live with. The defense is improving (as was the case last year). The corners (including Adams played a reasonable game. Few have stopped Manning as well this year.
