    Nice commentary as usual, Ken!

    If we are looking at Catches Per Target, look no further than Phillip Dorsett.

    IMO, his 3rd and 17, was the best play of that drive, and probably of the game.

    I think he is the best WR 3/4 of Brady's career and the epitome of middle class depth.

    Go Pats!

    It would be interesting to use the 4th quarter of these blow outs to put the rookie WRs on the field to practice for next year. But can't do that with Harry and Myers watching from home on TV.

    With this OL...Dante will need to work miracles against teams with a good DL..

    Get well soon to Pats injured OLmen !!

    When that happens, the Offense will be unstoppable...

    I'm starting to think that Dorsett's contributions is the best story line that has been wiped out by all the AB mess. If there was a key play in a 43-0 thrashing, it was that 18 yd beauty on 3rd and 17. It was the Highlight catch of the week that will never see a Highlight reel. Glad to see he is finally getting his due.

    Dawson get a bad rap as being a bad player and a bad pick. I think time will show that Dawson is an NFL quality DB. It was just unfortunate that he was in a situation where the Pats found 2 UDFA's (Jackson/Jones) that were simply better than him.

    And again, there wasn't a better DB this preseason than Williams in the league. His coverage was almost perfect and he was a beast against the run, and yet he can't crack the 45 man roster for the first 2 games of the season. It has nothing to do with him being sub par in ANY way, its just that there is no room for him because of the quality of the guys in front of him. Hell, he'd be starting for half the teams in the league. Its really a good situation. Injuries will eventually hit the secondary and the Pats will have a good answer when it happens.

    And the Thursday Night game should go as well. The solution is very easy, btw. Just change the game to a 2nd Monday night game. The networks can stay the same and the revenue stream will continue, though a bit less. Way too much of an advantage to the home team on such a short week.

    Or just add a second BYE week that is guaranteed before TNF. Players and teams get more rest, the owners and league get one additional weekend of regular season football for free which raises revenue (and in turn also the piece of the pie going to the players gets bigger).

    Everyone wins.

    To the patriots, a top WR may be worth what we are paying AB, probably not much more. So, yeah, he would be much more valuable to someone else.

    I've said in another post that I would like to extend Gordon at the bye or later, expecting that cost would be around $10 a year.

    While this is true, Brady needed to spend the time with Brown and Gordon.

    I would welcome extensions to Dorsett and Gordon.

    I think both have their place in the final 2 years of Brady's career. But I am not sure how likely either of the two are to forego FA while it is similarly unclear to me whether the Pats would not rather hang on and let Gordon finally finish a full season before talking real money.

    Also I think they are fine with letting Dorsett hit FA and then either pick him up cheap if his market doesn't materialise or just move onto e.g. Meyers.

    It always requires two to dance.

    I think most if not all games are replayed on the NFLN - starting Tuesday.

    With Brees down, Rapelessburger out, and the OL falling apart. Every down Brady plays scares me. BB the GM needs to get another decent tackle in before something very bad happens. The run game is going to suffer also so maybe split the load with Sony and Harris. Pound the ball until help arrives.

    Another bye week? Only if the one before the SB is removed.
