Season Wrap-up 2009

Still not over last Sunday's loss.  To paraphrase the great philosopher Emmitt Smith, "We just got debacle'd".

Julian Edelman and Kevin Faulk showed up.  That's about it.

Here's what I'd like to see this offseason:


  - Get "tougher" on defense (both physically and mentally).  And a pass rush would be nice.

  - Resign Vince Wilfork.  Let Matt Light go.

  - New offensive coordinator. Bill O'Brien just isn't getting the job done.  There's no creativity there.  I could have called a better game last Sunday.  Even Brady didn't seem comfortable with the plays being called most of the season.

  - I'm guessing Welker will be out next season.  I'd like to see them draft at least 2 WRs.


The good news?  We have 4 of the top 53 picks in the next draft.

(The bad news is that we'll probably be trading those for picks in 2013...)

Five Things to Watch This Week - Playoff Edition

Playoff Football!  Playoff Football!  Playoff Football!

It's Wild Card Weekend.  The Patriots host the Baltimore Ravens Sunday January 10th at Gillette Stadium at 1:00 PM.  Thanks for coming along for the ride with me this season.

I'll save the negative comments for next week.  I just don't see us losing a home playoff game (Unless Baltimore brings Avon Barksdale and Stringer Bell) (Anyone else think Avon looks like Kevin Faulk?).

Just THREE things to watch this week.  We'll keep it simple.

Running Game - Here's the gameplan I'd like to see:  run, run, run, play-action deep to The Moss.  Boom.  Hopefully, we'll see a lot of Taylor, Faulk and Morris (and maybe some Maroney).  Baltimore's secondary is it's weakness.  Let's set 'em up then kill 'em.

D-Line - If Vince Wilfork and Ty Warren play, we're in good shape.  If not, we're boned.

Stephen Gostkowski - Will the game come down to Gostkowki's big leg?  Maybe!

My Prediction:
