2nd Team Getting Their First Start
2021 Weekly NFL Picks Winner
I am really surprised how much we missed Hobbs. I have always liked Gay, but he is no Hobbs! I hope he is back starting next week!
for one thing.... Asante got burned.
the Pats defense every game plays conservative and plays coverage in the first half. they do not allow anything deep.
in the second half they start blitzing more....
we've seen this all season!!!!!!!!!
they've done this in the eagle game, in the baltimore game, in the giants game and i'm sure many other occassions i can't recall.
any corner is going to have a difficult time covering if they are asked to do so for over 4-5 seconds.
Gay did a good job. I'd like to see Hobbs back for kickoffs and as a dback but it is not the end of the world having gay in there. in fact he filled in nicely.
Hobbs came in the game in the second half.
They seemed to spot him sparingly, I think out of desperation. They looked as confused in the secondary a number of times as I've seen them look since before Hobbs replaced Starks. I hope he's healthy next week because we will need him against Wayne with Harrison back.
'Sante won't be back because he's not worth $6M+. He's a very good player in a good system when it's working. He feasts on innacurate passers, and while there are a lot of those out there you don't see too many of them come playoff time.
i thought gay was ok... he missed one play that i noticed... hobbs is still our best cb, and yes, better than samuel.Obviously I can't critique the secondary based on the little they show us on TV, but when I saw Gay all I saw was him making great plays.
What was I missing?
re: Hobbs. Was a "combination" of things that led to Gay starting - Hobbs says it was strategy driven, not injury. Take it all with a grain of salt.
