    (1) Love me some Hightower. That guy is exceeding my initial expectations, even though I liked the pick. That he returned and was a true factor is amazing. (2) As dicey as things were on O at times - NE played with very few players today and Vollmer/Brady/Dola/Gronk did enough to pull the others. (3) When you struggle yet still get 30 pts and win by a TD, you know you're good. (4) 3rd down and long has got to be better on Thursday.

    I read on Twitter that he came in for a goal line play but a time out was called and he was taken back out and that was, apparently, the only appearance he made on the field.

    The "No. 1 Defense" might need "significantly better CB play" more than the Pats. Factoring in the drops, it's not like Revis, Cromartie and Skrine were dominant.

    The No. 1 Defense was facing Brady. The Patriots CBs were facing Fitzpicksix.

    Can't be good for Mayo that the pats game plan was to stop the run and he didn't see many snaps. Hightower is playing at a very high level.

    Hightower is a beast, and in the first half at least was comfortably our best defensive player. I can't see Mayo being here next year.

    Yeah, your reminded me of that. 13-10 Thursday night win against the Jests. I hope this upcoming game against the fish isn't one of those sloppy Thursday night games.

    Mayo's coming back from a bad injury, and it shows. He'll either improve significantly moving forward, or he'll be hard pressed to stay in the NFL next year.

    Very much agreed. Said in the game thread that I thought it was his best game as a Pat. Akiem Hicks had some good moments as well.

    Still a lot of open WRs for $30 million in salaries this year. And it's not like Luck was picking the Pats CBs apart last week.

    I'm not sure why you think setting up straw men, and then moving the goalposts of your straw man argument, are appropriate responses to people who point out the Patriots CB problems, but whatever works for you.

    Funny, the Vikings cut Coleman and drafted Waynes 11th overall. Waynes has barely played 15% of snaps for them.

    Not saying Coleman will be better than Waynes but it shows how difficult it is for rookie CBs to make an impact. Byron has been stuck as the Cowboys dimeback and Peters has given up 6 TDs for instance.


    As much as I want a CB trade, sticking with Butler/Ryan/Coleman and going through the growing pains may be the best move for the future.

    Because I was commenting on the Pats and Jets corners, not arguing about it.
