IMHO, Tom Brady will not last many games getting the kind of protection schemes that we had against the jets. Maybe the offensive line isn't good enough for the schemes that were used. In the end, that just doesn't matter. We need to use schemes that take advantage of the talent of the players we have. Everyone seemed to recognize that the patriots had/have the best offensive talent in the AFC. OBSERVATIONS 1) Facing pressure is nothing new to Belichick and Dante. 2) Facing a defensive line that is better than our offensive line is nothing new to Belichick and Dante. 3) Facing top pass-rusher that can beat our OT's one on one is nothing new to Belichick and Dante. 4) Depending on the Brady, and needing to defend him as a #1 priority is nothing new to Belichick and Dante. Other teams on Sunday (including the jets) seemed to know what measures to take their quarterbacks. The patriots used to understand these methods well, using 2 and 3 TE sets, using 3 RB's or having a running back in the backfield on pass situations to protect Brady and be available for dump offs and screens. As NFLN pointed out, the jets, when their offense was successful on Sunday, had 7 or even 8 players protecting the quarterback. They often had only two receivers in their patterns. I am not suggesting such an extreme attitude of quarterback protection for the patriots. But it seems there should be more recognition of the need to protect Brady, even if he were at 100%. Given the situation, I just don't understand the logic of using a gunslinger offense with little protection and little halftime adjustments to add protection.
