    Add Brace to the Ups! At least better than expected and some encouraging stuff

    #11 Jersey

    Down: Clayton, BJGE
    Up: Morris, Taylor

    Which is unfortunate, because I'd prefer the young guys being better.

    Add Brace (who never got off the line of scrimmage on the snap. He sat back and got moved to wherever the OT wnated to move him)
    Jake Ingram had a bad game too ... his FG snaps were all high and right. Mesko did a great job getting the ball down.
    Welch had a bad game too

    To me the big up is McCourty. With his play vs. a big physical elite wr in White I think he cemented a starting spot.

    I thought McKenzie and Price looked good, and Gronk looked pretty bad. Neal and LeVoir were also no good, whereas McCourty was a definite plus. What's the deal with Butler, is he hurt?

    McKenzie reminded me of the old Vince Lombardi clip : grab, grab, grab, everybody grab, grab, grab.

    Price: alligator arms.

    he was hurt early....they moved McCourty to LCB and Wilhite to RCB.......Butler did come back in the 2nd half,I think paired with Wheatley.

    Disable Jersey

    Gotta get up for Tate on that juke play he extended for 16 yds
    Hoyer looks poised & decent
    Zoltan was booming & placing his punts; much improved from practise
    Guys like Chung brought the hit sticks
    Arrington had a big hit as did McKenzie

    as to the hiting, this D needed to get more physical and it has
    the offense needed to get tougher and it's shown such in its run blocking

    Dunno how good/mediocre the Pats really are because Atlanter looked insipid

    LOL This is my least favorite media exercise, made worse when attempted by fans on a message board.

    Ninkovich was up. Way UP. very impressive.

    Brace had one nice play, I thought, forced a fumble. That can't be bad.

    I'm with you on Adalius, but Brace showed up, held point (mostly) and forced a fumble. Ninkovich had a sack. How are they on your "down" list?

    I thought the 1st unit defense looked very good. We played very vanilla and gave up very little.
    The secondary, all game, looked very good.
    I thought the first unit OL looked good, the 2s and 3s not so much.
    Damn Brady has a lot of weapons.
    I watched Brace very closely, and he looked good to me. I actually thought the push he got on pass plays was better than his 2gap run D.
    Derrick Burgess playing 34 OLB showed us why Derrick Burgess only plays nickel/dime DE.
    McCourty is very impressive. I don't want to get carried away, but he reminds me of the best corner we have here in the BB era, in the way he seems to be able to do everything you could ask of a corner. I love seeing corners come up and pound guys catching 4 yard outs, and since 24 I havent seen that often. I remember when there was a debate on this board that the expectation of McCourty was that he migt be able to beat out Wlihite for nickel BY THE END OF THE YEAR. Didnt take long for that one to be wrong.
    Chung has improved by leaps and bounds.
    I am not impressed with short yardage run D yet, even though its only been a few reps. There are years when you just cant run for 3rd and 1 against us and others where we struggle a lot. So far, not looking great there.
    Was surprised Murrell played with the 1s again and Ninko with the 2s. Thought they would flip that this week. Looks now like it means something.
    Maroney and Taylor splitting 350-400 carries is going to be an effective running game. Having Morris to fill in if one goes down is a nice buffer.
    We might finally be able to say that our punter can kick the ball farther than someone elses.

    Devin McCourty...I don't want to jump the gun but he seems like a guy with a lot of potential. I really hope this kid can eventually become our best corner since Asante.
