In today's ESPN Boston, Field Yates looks at the total season's productivity for ex-Patriots. One can't help but notice the low productivity of Mark Anderson (12 tackles, 1 sack) and Andre Carter (19 tackles, 2.5 sacks). Even considering Anderson's injury and Carter's late start, their prorated numbers don't come close to what they did here last season (Anderson with 29 tackles and 10 sacks, Carter with 52 tackles and 10 sacks). Ninkovich and Jones clearly outperformed them this year. At the start of the season, some wondered about how the Patriots were going to make up for the twenty lost sacks, but they came within three of the 2011 total and are not burdened with large contracts to two aging players. Kudos to Bill Belichick the GM.
