The benefits of DVR and working from home. Here is my analysis. 1) WITHOUT QUESTION.....Welker was held on every play. Moss was held almost as much. Very blatantly too. You got the feeling early in the refs said we have to swallow the whistle a bit because we'd have 30 holding calls on Balt. and that would make US look bad. 2) Wilfork and Warren were held ALOT. Not garden variety holding. On MacGahee's bigger runs, both guys were HELD by two OL's. That being said, Bruschi and Vrabel were washed out of plays TOO often. No speed or good reactions to the runner. 3) Drops......we all saw it. Nuff said. They catch half those NUMEROUS drops. Different game. 4) Brady looked for the BIG play too often. Failk and Welker were open on many shorter 6-7 yard passes. 5) Hobbs is a dumb football player right now. He may get smarter. Right now he's dumb. Get's tricked and beat too often. Bad tackler on runs yesterday. 6) 12/4/2007 - As of right now, Meriwaether is a huge bust. AS OF NOW. Tackles tentatively....poorly. Takes awful angles. Can't cover anyone right now. 7) Adalius Thomas, Richard Seymour. I don't know what to say. Injured? Burn't out? Overrated? Seymour was late to the party on many plays. Watching Thomas makes me miss Colvin real bad. Colvin had some fire in the belly. I know these guys are better than this....they are just getting beaten right now. 8) Harrison, Sanders and Samuel are our best players on D. All three play with intensity and are in on most plays. 9) The team body and shoulder tackles too much. Rarely do they wrap up. 10) Matt Light is having his annual stretch of bonehead games. Let's hope it ends soon. 11) Ben Watson makes me wish for Dan Graham. Watson is Graham but without the blocking skills. 12) Kevin Faulk needs a statue outside Gillette upon retirement. GREAT PLAYER. 13) Koppen and Neal were getting beat like rented mules on tons of plays. 14) Our defense is slow. We have awful team speed on D right now. That being said....still won with composure and smarts. I love this team but I'm seeing a ton of deficiencies teams can pick on.......and the road is gonna get harder to reach the ultimate prize.
