a few observations

DJ is fearless! He needs to protect himself for the team. He doesn't slide and is going to get hurt. Did you see him try to stop the TD after the fumble dam threw himself head first mans got balls!
The D has greatly improved Peppers is making plays much improved. The pass rush with Golden and Lawrence in the middle is more evident.
Baker looks much improved but the zone coverage over all sucks.
Vet free safety, forget his name needs to sit play Love or find someone who can run.
Entire team is playing hard!
Next years infusion of talent and this team will contend.
Still think we have a Wild card shot.....I can dream.


some say DJ is fearless.

to me, there is a fine line between fearless and reckless. to me he is starting to look more reckless than fearless. sloppy even.
I was there, 13 rows from field in the endzone

DJ threw into some tight windows. GMen were physical, OL kept him clean for the most part. Didn't understand the 4th quarter punt but I don't think it would have mattered. We were beat up but so was the pats. Only ran one grouping the whole 4th quarter (Gordon hurt)and their OLine was bad. Middle 3 got good push on QB sneaks but their tackles were horrible. After the game the Pats Post Game was really concerned about the horrible OL play more so than their lack of weapons. Great Place to see a game but the traffic after SUCKS! Got to car at 11, left lot at 1AM. Poor job, beautiful complex but it is stuck in the middle of Foxborough and there is no highway in and out.
Some more stuff

Just amazed every week. It seems like the opponents best WRs are always open or being guarded by backups. Last night Haley was picked on, last week Theilen seemed wide open all time and in the past Hamilton and Baker (earlier this year) were picked on.

Also can we please dump Stupar. He stinks as a LB and last night the punt block was his fault. He gets bull rushed and practically pushed into the punter. The punt hit him in the back.

Listen Jones needs the experience but the interceptions last night were brutal. Yeah there was a lot of talent missing on offense but was it any less than Eli has had the last few years and especially the last 5/6 games of 2018?
Glad the team believed more than BBI did.

DJ has got to learn to avoid contact. Eli is making $16 million or so in his late 30's precisely because he knew the value of avoiding hits.

Peppers IS playing much better. If only he and the other guys behind the line knew the value of slowing down and wrapping up rather than going for high-speed head-down shoulder-chop hits.

I keep seeing another Wentz.
DJ was interesting  
LG in NYC : 10/11/2019 2:53 pm : link
he had some real rookie moments... but damn did he make some pinpoint throws into some extremely tight windows.
he wasn't helped by his receivers much (or the refs).

all in all, there is a lot to like with DJ... but he needs to cut down on the TO's; they are coming in bunches right now.
Concerns me that DJ is willing

To throw himself around. And itís not a fear issue. Itís intelligence. Nobody wants to see him get hurt. Especially him.
How can anyone complain about a player but not remember his name?

Shows a deep knowledge of the team and what a big fan you are.

Horrible coaching, Shemur is coaching skeered.

He is going to make mistakes. He is a rookie. Eli made mistakes in '04 also.

4thQ, about nine min. left, third down play, Peppers has chance to make a tackle that would get the D off the field and give the offense another chance. He overran it. Pats finish the drive and score a TD. Make the damn tackle.
