Ground and Pound is tough when the OL sucks. Hard to tell if the strategy would work.It’s an offense first league. Gotta score to win. And yet Bill’s been trying to zig when they zag for 3 of 4 years post-Brady in developing a ground and pound O. It ain’t working. We need playmakers, and an OL, and likely a better QB. It’s just not working.
I am watching the game. The defense has been fine to good. But they have missed some tackles. And they gave up a few big plays. Mostly that TD run and the entire drive before the half. The offense has been more to blame though.What game are you watching? The defense, before that long run, has done nothing BUT stop the big plays.
Well, at the moment let's just see if someone else can make a play. They have enough time to have an ordinary defensive stand, but not much beyond that. Mac probably only gets one chance at redemption.The Pats are likely to score one more time. But its probably asking a lot for two more TDs.
Man, he's made a lot of second reaction plays, he's created outside structure. He missed the play to Gesicki that would have been amazing had he hit, but even as a Mac skeptic I have to say he's been nails. This offense asks him to be the playmaker and he made plays.He's been ok, I don't think he's been awesome. The defense has given him great field position, he had the shit drive post Gonzalez int, and Rham finally showed up that drive.
