    Love MB III coming out of the backfield and running downhill.

    He's always been a poor fit for a mediocre line. But, the problem now is he's even worse than that.

    You know, one of the things that I'm always amazed over is the fact that we can't seem to get good blitz pick up from our backs. I mean, I don't know if it's the assignment, the recognition or what. I can't say that it's bad technique because most times, the back is not there in time to check the blitz. It will be interesting to see if Romo helps here. In the backs defense, I don't know how you design a blitz pick up on that middle blitz that gets there quickly enough from where they line the back up from under center. There is just no physical way the back can get there, especially when the QB is between he and the assignment. I've always wondered if it was Drew not getting away from the center quickly enough or if it was something in the blocking scheme. Will be interesting to see.

    This is probably already stated but BP said in his PC that Bleedslow went to the wrong side and it was this improvising that finalized his decision to make a switch. If someone else has already stated this I apologize. I'm still reading the post.

    Poor fit....everywhere he has played it must have been a poor fit with a mediocre line. New England and the Jets too. I was discussing his play last night (after softball and a few beers) with a long time Patriots fan. He backed up the fact that these types of plays aren't new to Bleedslow. That's been his MO for years. Just straight brain fart decision making and holding on to the ball too long. Remember Brady took over the same line and won Super Bowl. We should be so lucky with Romo.

    MBIII has been my choice over JJ for a while now. Blocks better. Catches better. Runs harder.

    Bottom line: The change will do us good. Now it's time for BP and the OC to design a package that best fits Romo's gifts.

    I bet he was scared to death of throwing in the same direction that resulted in a pick six against Philly.

    I hope Tony has short term memory and forgets about that play.

    Hmm. Then how did Drew manage these stats?

    5th all-time pass completions.
    7th all-time pass yards.
    13th all-time pass TDs.
    4 probowls

    And remember - Drew lost his job in NE due to injury not performance.

    I'm not saying he isn't done -- but you make it sound like he's been awful for his entire career -- and that clearly isn't the case.

    Many of those are due to sheer longevity without being injured. Has he sat out an entire game since losing the job to Brady?

    Vinny and Dave Kreig have nice stats too. Doesnt mean they dont SUCK at quarterback.

    You set yourself up for that one.

    If course, he hasn't been awful his entire career, but going back to as far as the Pete Carroll years, a good deal of his putting up huge numbers was predicated on comebacks - stupid decisions leading to the need for subsequent aerial displays. Bledsoe at one time was the league leader in comebacks..but further analysis usually indicated the reason a comeback was necessary was the QB himself.

    There were a fair amount of those high scoring comebacks even under Tuna.

    He lost his job in 2001, but by 1999, many Pats fans and a good share of the media had concluded he was a mid-range level qb. His draft pick status more than anything is what others based his 'eliteness on'. That and the passing stats which were based on his one undeniable asset - his strong arm.

    One of the reasons I support the change is that even in the games where he had clean pockets as you point out Redskins, Titans and Texans, Drew still did just ok, not great. And with the weapons he had I thought it should be better.

    To address abersonc's point about analyzing this one play...

    It's only fair to pick apart this play if it is illustrative of a pattern of behavior, and I think it is illustrative. I also don't think Parcells would have pulled him if it was the first time it ever happened.

    No doubt the Oline has looked bad, but in cases where the OLine has held defenders (and defenses have sent just a 4man front), he has STILL struggled. That was the case Monday against NYGiants and if you look at the video, against Philadelphia on the Lito Sheppard INT/TD. He had a clear throwing lane and no pressure on him...

    You know what, that's not a bad thought. It's twisted and wrong, but it could have entered Drew's head.

    The funny part is Bledsoe *****ing and moaning on the sidelines praying that Madison was out of bounds. :lmao2: What a tool...

    I'm sorry but Bledsoe just strikes me as that goofy nerdy kid with no coordination that just so happens to grown into a 6'5" frame with a rocket arm. Kinda like that 6'8" kid that really has no business playing basketball but does.

    This is very true. I'm surrounded by Pats fans everywhere here in the Boston area. They feel for us, yet also laugh because they gave up on him for the same reasons and are so glad they don't have to deal with his heartbreaks anymore.
