While that may be true for Zeke in the back half of his Soph year and his Junior year, it wasn't true for him the entirety of his first year starting.  There were many times that he would get tripped up similarly to how Weber did last fall.

I agree, the Patriots have a QB friendly team and system.  Their 3rd string QB, Jacoby Brissett, looked serviceable earlier this year.

I think this is great.  I was surprised at first, but then I thought about it and it makes a ton of sense.  Kwon was the QB of the defense last year and I think they are wanting someone to be able to do that again.  Worley has played each of the last 3 years so he is very familiar with the defense as a whole.  I know everyone is worried about his size, but all I can think about is the middle linebackers from Wisconsin that don't seem like they are very big, but are just tackling machines (I do understand that they run a different scheme).

I'm wondering if this is a catch 22, we need all 5 out in routes to try and stretch the defense since the WRs aren't consistently getting open and getting separation.  This leaves no left to help.  I would think they should have the TEs just chip on their release to help out Prince before releasing but we can't always have a TE aligned on the right.

Kyle, thanks for the article.  I've always enjoyed reading them and you seem to have a knack of talking fans back off of the ledge after each offensive struggle.  

One thing I've noticed throughout the year, but especially with the all go play you diagrammed above is that we have guys open deep but JT just doesn't seem to be able to find them.  To me it looked like both Paris and Terry were open on that play with KJ partially open.  Of all the throws that JT could have made on that play, the one he threw to Samuel was of the more difficult kind because he needed to get it out over the top of the trailing lb.  What's even more interesting is that it appears that Paris is his first read.  Did he just feel the pressure and come off it?  Paris is even with the safety at the time.

I agree and was thinking the same thing.  If we are going to be vanilla and run cover 1 all the time, let's at least put our best guy on their best guy.  They ran the same play like 7 times and we stopped it like once.  A safety and nickel back should never be asked to cover the best receiver on the opposing team.

My guess is that he is still recovering.  His injury was 5 weeks-ish after when Brown got hurt.  Last year we saw the same thing with JT, injuries take time to recover.
