Five thoughts from Pats/Bills

Posted by bdowd625 on September 26, 2010

Well that was a little more interesting than everyone expected, wasn’t it? I hate listening to pregame talk shows that constantly think the Pats are going to destroy everyone on the planet. The truth of the matter is that with a defense this inexperienced, no lead is safe. As I’ve said before, New England needs to score at least 30 points per game to have a chance. Luckily, that’s exactly what happened against the pesky Bills today. So without further ado, here are five thoughts from today’s Pats/Bills game.

* For as many good plays as the defense made today – and for once Brandon “I like to experiment” Meriweather chipped in – there were just as many brutal ones. Like that third-and-127 the Bills had to convert early in the game. Somehow three Patriot defenders ran into one another, allowing Buffalo to pick up the first down. On top of that, Ryan Fitzpatrick looked like he was from Alabama instead of Harvard. Just way too many big plays from someone who is normally a terrible quarterback.

* I’d like to personally thank Aaron Hernandez for smoking a little herb in college. By dropping to the fourth round in the NFL draft, the Pats picked up a stud tight end, one who is a YAC maniac. Smoke on, Aaron.

* It was great to see Justin Bieb… I mean “Tom Brady” up to his old tricks. Brady made several exceptional throws into tight coverage, including a pair of touchdowns to Randy Moss. The best part about Moss’ touchdowns? He did that hand gesture where he makes it look like he’s leaving the womb. An always classy touch for sure.

* Can someone please teach Kyle Arrington how to tackle? I’m not sure where Darius Butler disappeared to, but Arrington seemed to fan on every tackle he tried to make in the secondary. Yet another sign of the Pats’ ineffectiveness on the defensive of the ball.

* Danny Woodhead might never score another NFL touchdown again, but that’s OK with me. He made small white guys everywhere proud in the second quarter when he broke free for a long touchdown run. It’s even sweeter that Woodhead was a Jets castoff, so suck on that one, Rexy.
