So I'm sure I'm not alone in feeling that this season I've seen enough 3rd-and-longs completed to wide open receivers for first downs to last me until the end of the decade. My question is, when these guys are so clearly wide open -- not getting individually beat like Hobbs was on the deep pass to start the second half where it was just a good pass, good catch and mediocre coverage -- is this a fault of the players, the defense called, or a combination of both? I can't imagine these are all just blown assignments where DBs or LBs are simply not even in the same zip code as the receivers. It would appear that teams are just IDing what the zone is the Pats are setting up in and just picking it apart. Of course, I don't sit down and breakdown film, so I really have no idea, but I'm curious what others thoughts are?
