1.) Another game, another otherworldly performance by Brady. Even with him being a little shaky after he got that bad hit, he was unbelievable. 2.) People are trashing McCourty and the secondary, the real problem today was the pass rush. The Pats barely blitzed and that could be part of it, but Rivers had all day. When you give Rivers four or five seconds throwing to a big receiver like Jackson, he is going to make plays. I will chock this up to the Pats playing conservative on the blitz until the players pick up the schemes. That said, they did dial up the pressure and made the turnovers when they had to. 3.) Not happy with the injuries. Supposably Hernedez was limping badly in the lockerroom. The Pats can't afford to lose him. Hopefully he will be ok. 4.) So much for Branch not having a catch in the preseason. Perhaps he knew he was going to catch so many in the regular season that he wanted to let others get them in the preseason. 5.) Ochocinco is picking up the offense. He had a big catch early, but I saw him get open on other plays but Brady went to other receivers like Gronk on his TD catch. 6.) To think people wanted to cut Mark Anderson. Not a great player, but two games, two sacks. 7.) One of the most underrated thing about the defense in this game was how they shutdown Gates. It was obviously the gameplan. 8.) Kudos to Dan Connolly. He had a bad snap on one of the shotguns, but he hasn't made us miss Dan Koppen just yet. 9.) Gotta like the goal line defense. this is the second game in a row that the Pats made a huge goalline stand. 10>) Even with Mesko out, I thought going on it on 4th and 4 was stupid. Let Brady punt it 20 yards. It would have been a better move.
