Patriots Week 3: Three Up, Three Down

Three Up
Ellis Hobbs– Ellis had some great returns that put the offense into great positions and also played solid defense. Hobbs limited Ten Ginn Jr. to just a few yards after catch on multiple quick throws.

Stephen Gostkowski– He is still perfect on the season for field goals, and continues to give the opponent poor starting position on kickoffs. Gostkowski has boomed over half of his kicks in for touchbacks.

Mrs. NE Patriots Draft– Nobody else played that well, so I’m giving the third “up” to the wife for rocking the Wes Welker jersey and supporting the Pats.

Three Down

Patriots Offense– The offensive line couldn’t block, Matt Cassel wasn’t decisive, and Randy Moss showed some bad signs by quitting on a couple plays. A very rough day going against a defense that got lit up by the Cardinals a week earlier.

Patriots Defense– Evidently, the Patriots would have gotten worked by the Arkansas Razorbacks last year. The entire defense looked very slow and had a lot of trouble tackling Ronnie Brown and company and covering stalwarts like Greg Camarillo.

Patriots Coaching– Either the players didn’t execute well, or the Patriots Coaching staff made some poor adjustments. The Dolphins also played pretty well.

    The Bills will win the AFC East, err, the AFC Least.

    At least the Colts lost, too, so the weekend wasn’t all bad. It sucks having to wait two weeks to finally get back on track, though.
