Patriots Patter: Week 13
Miami gave the Patriots all that they could handle today. Their defense is first rate, especially Cameron Wake. At the half, I believe I heard the Patriots had only 10 yards rushing.
The firm of Ridley, Vereen & Woodhead, PC finally got the push going in the fourth quarter. RV&W allowed them to hold onto the ball for eight minutes.
Other than a fourth quarter reception and an onside kick recovery, was Brandon Lloyd playing incognito?
I love the name Richie Incognito. Poor Richie took a beating being paired off with Vince Wilfork most of the day. Guaranteed, Incognito is in the whirlpool manana.
Coach B could be seen on the steamy Miami sidelines in his summer wardrobe. I think he has become a fashion consultant to underlings Josh McDaniels and Matt Patricia, who both looked like they hate to shop.
I am getting more nervous by the minute for Stephen Gostkowski. I hope he can break his lease, because lovable Bill “might be moving on.” If there was an inmate being released from Walpole who Belichick thought might be better, and didn’t have as they say “travel restrictions” affecting away games, he’d be on the roster.
Two newbies saw some playing time on the DL, Trevor Scott and Jake Baquette. Scott looked pretty decent. If the Patriots run any lower on the depth chart, (thanks Jermaine), they are going to have to grab someone out of the stands.
Believe it or not department. I read that Dolphins head coach Joe Philbin was once offensive coordinator for Northeastern University. NU has been unbeaten now for several years, as they terminated their football program several years ago.
Next Sunday night, get ready for a showdown. The winner is the best team in the division.
