Sean McCormick of FootBall Outsiders, from their Almanac ~ no Link, I'm afraid: "And now that Brandon Lloyd is stepping in to reprise the role of Randy Moss, the passing game is poised to evolve into some terrifying mutant combination of the 2007 and 2011 versions." Hah!! Beauty!! And it's true!! 1 ~ Tight End "Kong" Gronkowski & WingBack Aaron the Navigator have revolutionized Passing Attacks and ~ potentially ~ entire Offenses with their incomparable Hybrid Skill Sets, which are as dangerous in their ability to add Blocking FirePower to The Run Game as they are harrowing to Pass Defenders. 2 ~ The Middle of the ChessBoard has always been the most critical Real Estate in determining who takes command of the FootBall Game, and the Ascensions of Kong & Aaron The Navigator ~ combined with the slashing destruction wrought by "Wild Wild" Wes Welker ~ has ushered in an era of unprecedented dominance, thither. 3 ~ But the complete dearth of High Caliber Split End threats has allowed the better Defenses ~ namely: The Jets and the Giants ~ to flood The Middle, thus rendering our Assault manageable and, ultimately, defeatable. 4 ~ But now, with the accession of Brandon Lloyd to our ranks ~ a guy who speaks the hideously complicated Patriots Pass Offense fluently, and who is clearly rapidly forming a MindMeld with General Tom Brady...flooding The Middle is a luxury that opposing Pass Defenders no longer have. 5 ~ Kong & Aaron The Navigator have forged astonishing and delightfully horrifying reputations in two short years ~ and Wild Wild Wes has added to his phenomenal Legend ~ and have done so despite the better Defenses being able to crowd them. Thus, Brandon Lloyd's arrival improves far more than just one slot in our Offense. 6 ~ To consider what they ~ and, consequently, our entire Offense ~ are now going to be able to do, as a direct consequence of the Ripple Effect of Lloyd's arrival...is mind-boggling. 7 ~ The infinitely multiplicative Formations and Plays, and the stark, simple, and terrifying impossibility of guessing what we're going to do ~ and thus: matching up effectively with us ~ simply because we can either blast our foes with a Power Run or chase them off the field with a Super Spread out'f the same personnel package...is magnificent. Oh, it is very well.
