Game wasn't on TV here.
Did he play?
i didn't notice him. which is probably a good thing for a rookie safety.
Meriweather was out there most of the 2nd half as the Pats switched over to their Nickel package. He didn't really stand out. There were a couple of passes to his guy, but he was solid on the tackles. Meriweather actually was on special teams as well..
Better than Asante.
Just joking. Kind of.
He finished up with 4 tackles.
He seemed quick to tackle when his guy got the ball.
By the way, who is #31? I saw him on the field on defense a lot, and didn't recognize the jersey.
edit: weird, okay Meriweather is 31, I thought he was 38 before?
isn't 38 andrews?
38 was Andrews, until Eric Warfield was released, and Andrews became 23.
Kyle Eckel is 38. I think Andrews is 36. I think Richarson was 38.
I guess I stand corrected.
Richardson was 35. Meriweather's been 31 for weeks now. I think I am noticing Meriweather in on tackles A LOT and hardly ever on coverage and incompletes. But, hey, he's young. He'll learn.
Andrews is 23. Meriweather is 31. Eckel is 38. Richardson was 35.
23 (Andrews, I guess) is FAST. He caught up to Ellis Hobbs and passed him on the big kickoff return.
Guy... James Sanders is 36, Meriweather is 31, and Andrews is 23.
Ellis Slowed down as he got closer to the endzone as he knew nobody was going to catch him. Incidently Andrews was a very good returning in college, so yes he is fast.
He didn't stomp anyone in the pile so that seems like a good day to me.
SO whos on first.
Hobbs slowed up and watched himself on the big screen.
Lemme guess. You are what 18 years old right?
After 28-7, it looked like the Pats were keeping it in front and giving yardage for time, so keeping YAC to zero was a good result.
For a Safety the number one priority is keeping plays in front of you and making tackles. The kid can tackle.
It looks like it is going to take him a while (as expected) to understand coverage. The Jets TE beat him on an inside move, it was the exact move Shockey made against him in pre-season.
All in all he is a first rounder who is contributing and will get better.
