    They were awesome. If they keep it up this week against SD then look out rest of NFL.

    Got to disagree with Peter King on one point. I believe that Brady and BB are going to give Moss opportunities to make plays every game. So Moss may have games with only 1 or 2 catches, but I don't think he will have many games with less than 6-8 attempts thrown his way.

    While I loved how the Pats O-line played yesterday, lets be honest. The Jets Front 3 is mediocre and really didn't challenge the Pats. In fact, I was surprised at how vanilla the Jets defense was. I don't remember seeing any stunts or delayed blitzes. And those are two things the SD Chargers Front 7 do extremely well.

    Although I do have to admit that I am not impressed with the Jets defense at all, the o-line play would be considered spectacular no matter how bad the defense was. I have seen a lot of great o-lines play against some bad defenses with worse results.

    I'm happy to see the OL get praised by PK but...
    Something should be said about the Pats using the max protect
    with 6 OL and 2 TE. I don't know if he noticed this or not.
    Don't know how ofteN they used this alignment but I sure wouldn't mind seeing it for SD.

    The good thing is with better WRs, we can use more max protection. The good news about the Chargers is that their weakest point on defense are their CBs. I don't think Jammer can go one on one with Moss.

    I think the play-side safety had a delayed blitz on Welker's TD, but we shouldn't compare the Jets and Chargers Ds, as the latter will provide a much bigger test next week. One aspect that made me happy was that now the Pats can max protect and still have WRs that can get open in one-on-one coverage, unlike most of last year.

    I'm not sure the Jets really have the right front 3 for the 3-4, especially Robertson. And the 3-4 is anchored on the NT. Vilma is a great player, but he's too small for the 3-4. Probably why we saw all those jumbo packages with O'Callahan as TE.

    Signbabybrady wants to give major props to the O-line, That was as dominant a proformance as I can remember from our O-line both running and passing.

    As for those that question how much the jets blitzed, they didn't go crazy but they were bringing 4 and 5 pretty consistantly
