Okay, so it isn’t exactly Monday Morning, it’s almost Tuesday morning, but still the title sounds better as Monday Morning doughnuts. Plus, from here on out, I will try to post this on Monday mornings, unless the Pats play on Monday Night.
This segment, will go with Humble Pie Mondays, where I talk about the five things the Pats need to improve on, except this one will be the five things the Patriots did well in their win or loss.
1. Tom Brady plays like Tom Brady:
Brady playing like Brady, four time Super Bowl MVP, and all around stud is a good thing. Thursday Night, he played just like that. He threw for four touchdowns against the Steelers and without LaFell, destroyed the Steelers defense. He had three rookies on the offensive line, and while they did good, he helped them out in a big way, by moving around the pocket. Brady being Brady means the Pats will win.
2. Rob Gronkowski Rocks:
Gronk was a super stud on Thursday Night against the Steelers, who decided that sometimes the best defense is to not cover him at all. It worked out so well that Gronk caught three touchdowns against the Steelers. As long as he is healthy, the Pats and Brady have a serious unstoppable weapon.
3. Julian Edelman is a Minitron:
That’s a good thing. He’s like Megatron just smaller, but just as mighty. He was the chain mover, the blanket, and the machine for Tom Brady on Thursday night, and that is nothing new. He stays healthy and the Pats will be alright, especially with Gronk out there too.
4. RB Dion Lewis is the real deal out of the backfield: Looks like the Patriots have taken another no name running back and turned him into a household name in Boston. He’s the guy that will replace Shane Vereen as the 3rd down back. He caught four passes for 51 yards and added 15 rushing attempts for 69 yards. Not bad.
5. Malcolm Butler will be a top corner:
The stats were not great against Brown, but good enough, especially when it was the 2nd year corner’s first start. He’s number one now, and he has to play against the best. On some throws, he blew the coverage badly, on others, he was in perfect position, but Brown would somehow make the plays. He’s got the skills and smarts to be a great corner, and when he plays bad, he has a huge chip on his shoulder, so Buffalo will in trouble if they target him. Butler feels he can be better, but he put on an encouraging performance for Pats Nation.
