Matt Light started at OT the first 5 games of the season. During that time the Pats were 3-2, and averaged just under 21 PPG. Sebastian Vollmer started at OT the next 5 games, while Light was out injured. During that time the Pats went 4-1 (and should have gone 5-0 except for a 4th quarter collapse against Indy) and averaged almost 38 PPG. Vollmer shut down Dwight Freeney and Joey Porter, among others. Since Vollmer has missed the past two games we are 0-2. The offense has averaged under 20 PPG for those 2 games. The Oline has allowed Brady to be pressured consistently, including by a 3 man rush from the Saints. Coincidence? I'm not dissing Light, who is a good player. And he's probably not back 100%. And the offensive line woes have been much more than the LT spot. But we seemed like a different offense when Vollmer was anchoring the left side, enough so to make me wonder if the difference in play and stats is more than just a coincidence. 3-4 in 7 games started by Light, averaging 20 PPG. 4-1 in 5 games started by Vollmer, averaging 38 PPG.
