    Ugly-ish 1st half. Tommy overthrows, WR drops, including Deion who did not have a single drop in 2004. Made up for it in the 2nd half.

    Dillon - got some gutty yards, but he's still hurting and the patchwork OL hasn't consistently blocked well for the run all year.

    Winning while giving Bruschi another week off - nice.

    Beisel did okay and, Hey, Chad Brown - welcome to the season.

    McGinest and Colvin - Monsters.

    Asante and Geno - WHAT TOOK YOU SO LONG? Great showing. I'm sure Rodney was beaming on the sidelines.

    Ben Watson - ridiculous play. Just awesome. Coates-esque.

    Tim Dwight - worst game of year. A poor job tonight. We forgive you. Get 'em next time.

    Andre Davis - GREAT special teams work and solid contribution to the O. Bethel's gone next year.

    Kevin Faulk - very solid, vastly underrated player. Clutch, productive, you deserve the raves from post-game Belichick.

    Secondary - Pats have a legitimately HUGE worry, given their shoddy play in the first half. It's going to be WAY harder against Indy or Denver. 2nd half gave me a bit more hope.

    Mangini - a terrific job playcalling. Asante's INT was all him.

    Belichick - Obviously a great night for him and the team, but how on EARTH do you not bring in Flutie for the last series???

    How can you trash a secondary after allowing 3 points and 1-12 on 3rd down?
    Yes, they completed a few passes. Every team does against every defense. For the record Leftwich completed less than 60% for less than 10 yards a completion, which adds up to good pass D. Did you think we could get 6 sacks without good coverage? Or go 1-12 on 3rd of the secondary played "shoddy"???????????????

    By the way, why bring in Flutie when he is retiring when Cassell is staying and can benefit from the experience?

    aj, you make a good point re: the secondary, but I guess I just worry about facing better, and more balanced, offenses. And I did mean the secondary IN THE 1ST HALF.

    As for the Flutie/Cassel thing - eh. I think the experience Cassel got tonight could be valuable - someday he'll play "for real" and he can take solace in the fact that he's "been there," but I think we're overrating what he faced tonight. I would like to have seen Flutie get a post-season moment before the fans and a national audience, but it obviously couldn't be less of a big deal.

    GREAT WIN tonight, no denying that.
