What? No love for Jabbar today? He was a major contributor... thanks, dude!
Offensive player of the game! No doubt! Stepped up Huge today. Will need to continue that EVERY week now that the playoffs are here.
I loved the Pats' first three plays of the game on what seemed to be the same play all three times. BB gettting into EM's head right away.
Fine game today by The Hut, but he like every other Pats wideout needs to learn how to CATCH the long ball thrown to him. Oh, and tell him never, ever retreat from a FREAKIN FIRST DOWN and Kill a drive Watson style.
All said and done I am very thankfull that the Hut joined our team last October, worked his ass off and contributed strongly to a playoff win.
yeaH I yelled bad words when he dropped that big pass in the end zone but he made up for it by getting open and gaining yards the whole game. tough to complain about our offense today; Gaffney really came to play and I think was a difference-maker
I agree. I really feel good for the Hut's effort. It paid off. For him and for us. A real game contributor.
I like almost all the Pats players when they are Pats. But ultimately Gaffney is another average guy who is part of a winning system. And I will certainly root for him and enjoy any contributions he makes. Great game! May we have another, sir?
Finally Gaffney came up BIG.
I was throwing things after he went backwards on the sure first down play, but I loved that he had a career day out there.
oh yeah, I almost forgot about that lost 1st down... meh, he'll get enough crap from Beli, I'll still throw him my compliments for an overall solid contribution
That long pass was not an easy one at all. The DB knocked him off balance before the ball even got there.
I'd say most starting receivers make that catch. It was just the normal stuff WRs deal with, hand checking an such. He doesn't seem to have the body control to make those catches. It's the 3rd time it's happened.
Who said the Patriots had a bad recieving core?
Caldwell has improved greatly throughout this year and Gaffney had his first big game as a Patriot and at what better time?
NONE of the current WR corps can make that catch reliably. That's the problem. The good part is that we have several hard working wideouts that are improving week to week. Good timing.
