Wow. What a game. It had everything I like in a football game, except for the W. But the winner of the coin toss had the game, that was pretty clear. Matt Cassel is a starting QB in this league and I would now rank him near the top of available FA's. At this rate of progression, arguably one of the most stunning thing about this guy, he will be the #1 sought after free agent at season's end. That last drive was executed at an elite level. The game wasn't flawless, but that drive was one for the highlight reels. I was very impressed when he got sacked in what looked like mid throw and pulled the ball down and kept it. Some of his escapes were mind-boggling, too. No hassle, indeed. Randy Moss is clutch. He's been taken out of games by other teams and last night is why. I believe Cassel to Moss is about to become a regular thing. Also, Randy punked Law and that makes a guy feel good. Our defense was frustrating, but to be fair, that group had to adapt to no AT, Warren, and are probably still adjusting. Let those LB's play like they did in the second half all game and we win, easily. I feel like the Pats DO have to make some scheme or roster adjustments, but really just tweaks. We're very close to playing well even with a depleted backfield. The executioners really need to check out the scales of justice. Watson blocked pretty well last night. He's been improving. He had a fumble and drop, but also led the team in receptions and had a TD. He's obviously talented. As Matt continues to make use of his powers of amnesia, I believe Watson will continue to get better. Gaffney may have made a critical drop in the colts game, but he is looking more and more like a gamer in this offense. Also, Sam Aiken? Wow. I think Cassel told the rest of our scheduled teams that they simply have to cover everyone, because Matt is not going to steer away from a guy because he makes a mistake. Thinking that would be very flawed judgment. The no huddle is a big weapon and after last night, I believe we'll start seeing it a lot. It takes the defense out very quickly and our offense is starting to read oppositions very well as a unit. Belichick is a genius. It simply can't be argued anymore. He hates losing, probably more-so to the Jets, but the half-time adjustments were awesome. If we see the Jets in the playoffs, they will get destroyed. Bill is coaching a team in flux and they are handling adversity in a way I bet no team ever has. The '03 and '04 Patriots had big losses, but they had a constant at QB. They've been forced to find their way here on both sides of the ball with constant hits that must be absolutely demoralizing and Bill and co. are keeping them centred. Coach of the year? Pretty darn close. This team is very close to playoff calibre. Few tweaks, couple of adjustments and hand Matt the no huddle. We've seen them run monster drives and eat clock like it was their last meal. We've seen them execute the two-minute drill in one-minute. With so many clutch play-makers emerging, we're a whisker away from being dominant. The hot streak HAS to start now, and I believe it will. We need to solve the wild-cat, and I believe it starts with knocking O'neil or Hobbs knocking Penny on his can with a vengeance. Anyway, awesome game, many bright spots and I'm looking forward to every game more and more.
