Extra Lineman

I noticed this past week that Mark Levoir checked in numerous times on passing plays at TE, but really just to add a body on the line and provide extra blocking from the pass rush. There was noticeably less pressure on Brady this game and I hope we use this more frequently down the road against good pressure teams (Steelers, etc). Yes, it takes away an extra play maker down field, but it also prevents a defensive play maker from making noise in the backfield. I trust Brady and our receivers to make plays and I think the added protection is worth it.

 

What do you think?

Should the Pats try and use this package more often?

Will it be used against the Colts?

Did it really utilize all the players on the field to their maximum potential?

 

 

I think that when Matt Light gets back, Vollmer will step into that extra blocker role and Brady won't be touched for most of the rest of the season.

Vollmer, Light, Mankins, Koppen, Neal, Kazcur,

Moss, Welker, Aiken/Edelman

Brady

Maroney(1st down, running)/Watson(2nd down, blocking or receiving)/Faulk(3rd down, receiving and even running) depending on the play.

 

I think that offensive set is extremely dangerous and allows Brady to handle the ball with the most time, allowing our receivers to make as much space as possible down field.
