    There was alot of discussion this week about Vollmer coming back. I posted numerous times about keeping Nate Solder at RT. WOW, did we see the results.

    Nate was dominant against a great edge rusher. Just dominant ! His footwork, athletism and technique are off the charts for a rookie tackle.

    Thank you BB for not making the mistake of replacing Solder with Vollmer, thank you, thank you. Nate is a stud.

    The OLine was just tremendous tonight, kudos to the boys for giving TB the time he needed to operate.

    The common issue for the last 2 one and done's was the play of the OLine and the addition of Waters and Solder has done wonders and will bode well against either of these 2 DLines that we are going to see next Sunday.

    I thought the O-line played tremendously today. Brady was barely touch (only one time that Light got beat pretty bad I recall) and as Logan pointed out, when they make their, Tom takes care of the rest.

    I also love the fact that Mankins took the second half off to not aggravate his injury. He played amazingly by the way...as usual.

    Fantastic game by the O-line as a whole. I just hope the league doesn't mistake Von Miller's lash out as our O-Line being dirty and suspend Connolly or Light. Solder played a hell of a game. Regardless of our defensive needs, this kid is a gem.

    Von Miller hit two guys. He hit Brady right after he threw his 5th TD, and we all know the second one :lol2:

    Major props, but what was Denver doing? Did they blitz once in that game? They made zero adjustments the entire game on offense and defense. They let Brady stand back and pick them apart and left Tebow out there to get killed on the same crappy plays over and over.

    Fox is a whiny fraud. It's shocking he has a job. He is the Tebow of Head Coaches. Except that I bet he hates God.

    Yep. The Broncos hit Brady once, and he threw a TD on that play. The Pats, on the other hand, had 5 sacks, 4 QB hits, plus all of the hits on Tebow on run plays.

    Dumervil had one assisted tackle. Miller had one hit and no tackles.

    Zero sacks allowed, Dumervil & Miller total non-factors. Tremendous performance, and I hate to think where this team would be without the much-maligned pick of Solder.

    So about Connolly -- long-term center potential, or not?
