Game #3 Recap (Delayed)

Sorry for the delay as moving back into school this weekend put a delay on this recap.

This was by far the worse the Pats have played. They got outplayed by the worse team in the NFL last year in all three phases of the game. There were few bright spots on this night as the coach was clearly disappointed with his teams' play. Here a few positives to take from the game though

1. Rob Gronkowski- Gronk showed why the team made his the 42nd overall pick with one touchdown and numerous athletic plays

2. Brady to Moss- The connection was still there as the duo connected on a 68 yard touchdown in the third quarter

3. Wes Welker- Continues to make strides coming back from a very serious knee injury

4. Brandon Tate- 97 yd kickoff return to start the game seals his spot on this team.

5. Alge Crumpler- Made a great catch in the second quarter and has become a leader on this team that lacked it last season.

Here is a few of the negatives(there are too many to count)

1. Roughing the passer penalties on TBC(Tully Banta-Cain) and Brandon Spikes- Both penalties kept drives alive for the Rams and are dumb penalties on a team that prides themselves on being smart.

2. Running backs- The running game did not exist as Sammy Morris lead the attack with 5 rushes for 12 yards. Not what you are looking for.

There is much more to hit on negative department but I will try to stay positive with this team as the look to bounce back against the Giants Thursday in New York in their final pre season game.

Look for a special teams special(part 3) and a 53 man roster prediction in the coming days....
