I know it's heresy, but the weak link of this team right now could very well be the linebacking core. Seymour, Warren, and Wilfork are all absolute beasts right now, tying up opponents' O-lines. What we saw happening in the Jets' game was the Jets' offense with essentially zero ability to run the ball, which should have allowed the linebackers free reign to hammer Pennington, or, barring that, totally clog up the middle of the field and prevent completions. What we DID see were just 2 sacks by the LBs after the first play of the game (both by Banta-Cain) and endless completions in the middle of the field by Pennington, particularly in the 2nd half, when he completed something like 85 passes in a row. Sorry, but Chris Baker shouldn't be getting 70 yards in catches. Please. The problem here is that Bruschi's lost a step, Vrabel's playing hurt, and Colvin has regressed a bit after we all hoped he'd become a monster after getting fully healthy. It was enough to get by the Jets, but these guys simply HAVE to make some plays if the Pats are going to beat the Chargers. The great D-line the Pats have now is set up to allow the linebackers to make plays--they've got to do it this week.
