Re: Pats - Saints - Balls & Goats ... 


BALLS: 
.The fill in Defensive tackles- they seem to continue to do a great job
.Ridley for running tough and not worrying about fumbling
.Thompkins and Dobson for developing faster than I thought
.
GOATS: 
.Fox local network for making us watch the 49ers and the Broncos every week 
.The free feed network http://www.feed2all.eu/ for forcing a video plug pop up window thus blocking the view of the game
.Myself for turning off football at the half with a 17-7 lead and going to workout for the second half and then coming home and going right to this site to see if they won from your reactionsexcited

Re: Pats - Saints - Balls & Goats ... 


I agree with all others but I can't make Amendola a goat for being injury prone.  It can certainly be argued that it's our fault for signing him to 4 years, but he came back after 3 games and went back out.  Talib left early too which makes me nervous about his stability, but he was ticked.

I WILL blame a certain player for NOT coming back if he's really dominating in full pads vs. our defense in practice.  A great team win and I hope that Gronk wishes he was a part of it and stops listening to NFL's version of Scott Boras.

BALLS

1. Brady. Had a few bad reads and weird throws, but Captain Clutch appeared when he was needed.
2. Talib. Took away the Saints go-to guy all game.
3. Ridley. Provided the ground game to take pressure off Brady ... and 2 TD's helped as well.

Honorables: The Hooman (had a career day receiving, plus good run blocking), Chris Jones and Joe Vellano (doing solid work filling in for Vince), Gosti (54 yards, not bad), Collie (fast learner), Edelman (numerous big plays), Dobson (still some drops be he ripped like 5 catches in a row in the 1st which set up a score), Thompkins ("the catch"), and the Defense in General.

GOATS

1. Injuries. Talib, Connolly, Mayo, Amendola. Two of these are concussions - not good, from any perspective. (Obviously I refer to the injury itself, and not the player for getting injured.)
2. OL - 5 sacks is not good.
3. Some of the play-calling on offense was curious at best.

Dishonorables: Houston fans who cheered when Schaub got hurt. Jolly Roger for fining players for not having matching shoes.

A major game ball goes  to Scott Zolak for sounding like Jim Ross during a WWE wrestling match on the TD call, hilarious

Balls:

- Aquib Talib .. although he got hurt he was lights out.
- Defense .. Stellar with big stops at the end of the game.
- Kebrell Tompkins ... for catching that huge pass with 5 seconds left in the game

Goats:

- Receivers ... what? 17 dropped balls Shane warrant this?
- Fans for leaving the stadium after Brady threw the INT

Re: Pats - Saints - Balls & Goats ... 


Had to weigh in on you point there Shane... wasn't the stat that was mentioned on air that the Patriots receivers had the second most drops of all teams?
