Here is an intriguing article about Jerod Mayo I just read on Pats Pulpit. I know a lot of you have probably been over there early this morning, but I thought I'd post it here for some discussion. Mayo has become a bit of a polarizing player on the roster, albeit not as polarizing as some in the past (i.e. Maroney). Many fans laud him for his consistency and ability to play injured. He has been steady and reliable. Others chide him for his lack of big plays like some of the other more household names (Pat Willis, Ray Lewis, etc.). Many thought he was primed to make the leap last year, but it was arguably his worst, both statistically and just from an impact perspective. Personally, I don't want him in any other uniform, and I'm glad he got the extension he got. BB obviously sees his worth, perhaps going beyond the field of play. I used the term "playmaker" in the title, but I think what we may really be talking about is impact plays. He makes tons of plays, but the perception (which may actually come close to matching reality for once) is that he doesn't make those eye-popping plays or crucial plays that are momentum swings like Spikes INT versus the Jets in the red zone in 2010 and his INT versus the Ravens last season in the playoffs. Can Mayo become that? Will Mayo become that? What do you all think? Let's discuss.
