Frustrating Finish
Saturday night marked a frustrating end to New England's season, which now sets up some big questions heading into the offseason.

Current Patriots Twitter Feed:

Why can’t we just get a another crappy tackle?

    Why not just pickup some bottom level free agent tackle, put him next to Newhouse, and designate him as a tight end? Despite how much this player would suck, his blocking would at least be a big upgrade from the poor blocking tight ends we have who also pose no threat as pass catchers. If no one covers him, there’s always that Nate Solder play against the Colts in the playoffs where he takes a shovel pass.

    I think shoring up the left side of the OL with two crappy players (equaling a combined good left tackle) makes this team better. If they can improve the protection and run blocking, it’s worth taking a guy off the field, especially if that guy is going to to be Watson, Izzo, or LaCosse anyway.

    Also, I brought this up earlier, but no one on the roster can play fullback on 4th and inches?

    Thoughts?

    Why wouldn’t they just use one of the “crappy tackles” already on the roster for that, then?

    If they thought a street free agent was better than what they have, they would have swapped them by now.

    If the patriots believed that this would work, they would use Cunningham, a Practice Squad player, or even pick up Skippy (who was recently released by HOU.

    Why not just have Newhouse carry a .357 Magnum with him on the field and shoot the DE right after the snap? That would be effective.

    I think this too. Get an undersized tackle with good foot speed as a blocker.

    There are disadvantages to this as it is tough to disguise a run. And who you gonna get? Can the entire team put in a bunch of different plays? Can this tackle get out in space to block the strongside when the DE goes wide? Whoever we put in there better be able to wham block, zone block, catch. where’s Dwayne Allen at? Just bring him back.

    All of the injury timeouts every game would be annoying...also, it would probably only work on one play. The league catches onto trick plays like that pretty quickly

    It’s bad. I assume they’re hoping Watson rounds in to shape and can salvage the position.

    But they’d still have already made a change if they thought a free agent was better than a current player. Both OT and TE free agent lists look pretty bare to me....

    The real question is how long do they stick with both izzo and lacosse.
