    Wow to the comments about Light who is not as bad as this guys comments would indicate which was apparently in anger while writing it,I don't know if Vollmer is a full time LT to take over Light's position even when he returns but he did look impressive,If Vollmer continues to look good maybe Light will have a fight to get his job back but I think it's going to be Light's job to lose when he returns in a few weeks.

    I read the article you posted. The writer believes that the OL has been doing just fine. And yes, he made the joking comments about Light. He believes that the entire problem is Brady's rust and the team will be much better as Brady gets more in sych with the offense.

    It's the offense stalling in the red zone that has killed the Pats in almost every game this season. Brady needs to get it together and the play calling needs to get it together. Almost every time it's a 1st and goal this season, the Pats have gone into shotgun and try to throw it in 3 straight times. The offensive play calling has been absolutely hideous this season.

    well, the only thing that wasnt expected was the fact the rust that is on Brady and the offense.

    when we saw matt cassel take the team to a 11-5 record we assumed that when brady gets back this offense will continue to roll, but it hasnt. So right now Brady is playing like cassel last year.

    I do not understand why folks did not expect Brady to need time to come back from his injury.

    The facts about Manning in 2008 and Brady in 2009 should have people more understand about injuries to the knee and being an NFL QB and how long it takes.

    Carson Palmer who is having one hell of a good season thus far was very vocal about what he expected from Brady as to start slowly on the road to recovery like he was when his knee cap was busted and he was damn right,it is taking Brady time to recover and also time to get his head on straight about being afraid with players around his knees.

    I agree that he doesn't like Light long-term. As most of us, I think that he is looking forward to someone upgrading Light. He is a strong supporter of Vollmer. In any case, I was referring to the following part of the article.

    "All kidding aside, the O-Line has been sufficient, it's Brady who's been off. Understandably so, I mean the man only missed an entire season after knee surgery. Peyton Manning got off to a similarly slow start after minor knee surgery before winning the NFL MVP award, how can Brady be expected to return without missing a beat?"

    The Pats had 100% red zone efficiency against the Broncos. The problem isn't the red zone offense, lately
    Broncos: 2 trips, 2 touchdowns
    Ravens: 5 trips, 3 touchdowns, 2 FGs
    Falcons: 5 trips, 1 touchdown, 4 FGs. << It did suck in this game, but we won anyways, so it's hard to say that it's 'killing' us
    Jets: 3 trips, 3 FG << sucked, and was one of many factors that cost us the game.
    Bills: 5 trips, 3 touchdowns, 2 FGs

    So yeah, there was a 2 game stretch where the red-zone offense was pretty bad, and for hte last 2 games (and the first game) it's been good. Far from the disaster that you're claiming it to be... unless you're one of those people that thinks that every single red zone trip must result in a touchdown, end of story.

    Bear in mind that the Pats have played in 4 Super Bowls already this season:

    Week 1: The Buffalo Terrells announcing their arrival by upsetting their arch-rivals on national TV.

    Since then...1-3 with a home win against TB and a humiliating home lost to the Mangini's. How are you going to stop the Owens and Evans combination? Have Trent Edwards throw to them.

    Week 2: The Rexes actually declared it their Super Bowl. How fargin' precious is that?

    Since then...1-2 by squeaking by Tenn. at home, getting whomped at NO and mailing in the 4th quarter at Miami. The Sanchise getting 171, 138 and 172 yards in that span. Can we call the 200 yard mark the "Sandoza Line"?

    Week 4: This was the game when the Ravens were going to shut down the Pats offense AND unleash their high-powered scoring attack to dismantle the Pats at their house and springboard directly to February.

    Since then...0-1 losing to the Bengals at home. To be fair, they were distracted trying to figure out how to blame the officials from the Pats game for any bad calls.

    Week 5: I actually like McDaniels, but he probably dislocated both shoulders with the fist pumps after the game. Tone it down a bit, cowboy. Long way to go.

    Since then...Roadies against SD and Ravens on deck, with Pitt, SD, Giants, Indy and Philly on the horizon. Lucky for them they still have 3 lifelines (2 KC and 1 Oak) they haven't used yet.

    I didn't count the Falcons (even though it was Ryan's return to Boston) since they acted like the game was 1/16th of their schedule. Since their game with the Pats...they destroyed an overachieving SF team on the road.
