Patriots @ Dolphins

The Good
Difficult to find anything really....
Jackson got some decent game time I suppose

The Bad
The coaching. Possibly the worst coached game from Bill yet?
More knocks to the Offensive Line
Brady taking a knock from Suh
It's a good job Boulden is 5yrds tall as he just falls over when he reaches the line of scrimmage

The VERY UGLY

The insistence to run the ball even on 3rd and long plays, despite our lack of running production
Keeping Brady on the field when all we were doing was running the ball
Crazy play calling
Not really succeeding in protecting key players
Another loss going into the off-season

The good

McCourty/chung/kline/amendola all playing yesterday and not looking to bad,amendola running freely is a positive.

The bad

Our pass defence,last week we made the jets 3/4th recievers look good and this week GREG JENNINGS.

The ugly

The reaction of the patriots players after Brady got hit in the back by that Dirty Olivier Vernon that got a personal foul penalty,not 1 player got into a pushing match with him.Logan Mankins or Matt Light would have not just let that happen without some retaliation.

End of season.....

The good

Belichick - still the best headcoach/GM in the league.

Brady - still playing at an all-pro level and still money in a lot of 4th quaters,the drives in denver and new york(twice) with piece's missing show why he is the best of his generation.

The defence - with the back end been re-built we maybe worried a bit but the front 7 where great(when healthy) and the coverage was definetly better than expected.Good mix of youth so hopefull built for a few more good years.

Gronk - maybe not as many gronk gronk gronk moments but still the biggest offensive mis-match in football.

David Andrews - after last seasons start when the line was awful losing Stork in pre-season could have been a massive issue but the un-drafted guy was just awesome in the 1st half of the season,another Belichick find.

The bad

injuries - every team gets key injuries but we seemed to get injuries to the same position at the same key times.The tackles both slot guys both inside linebackers.

The running game - Dion Lewis was a great pick up but we do maybe missed a Ridley who can run between the tackles on a consistant basis,Blount had his moments but maybe lacks that speed burst.

The out-side reciever - LaFell was great in 2014 but just never seemed to get fully healthy and put together a string of good games and Dobson showing flashes before his trip to IR.

The Ugly

the o-line - Just hard to imagine a team having to play so many players and combinations through injuries,in so many games early in the seasonwe managed to keep Brady up right(the line in the 1st jets game deserve a ton of credit) but from the giants game onward teams just started to really have success when the quick passes wheren't there.The guards and center's are mostly all young players so hoping this is a learning curve.

Special teams - normally a strong point but 4 games in a row with a muffed/dropped punt when we really needed help,with the offence been slowed down

Week 17 - strange gameplan

True that he's still the best, but I wouldn't put him in the good this year. He's not on any of the 3 lists. He had a mediocre year IMO... by his standards i.e. one of best in the league for this year alone.
