For this week's GMC Playbook question, Marshall Faulk asks us "who has been the Patriots unsung hero thus far in 2014?"
The Patriots have quite a few options, especially for a team that preaches the mantra of "do your job."
Here are a few candidates:
James Develin, FB: Has played 212 snaps on offense, is a special teams contributor, plays h-back, tight end, lead blocker. And he's one tough SOB.
Michael Hoomanawanui, TE: "O-man," has only been targeted three times all season, but has contributed 351 snaps as a blocking tight end.
Ryan Wendell, OG: Since Ryan Wendell returned to the starting line-up in week five, the Patriots have not lost a game. This is a fact.
Vince Wilfork, DL: Wilfork has not recorded a sack this season, but he's wreaking havoc as a run defender and disrupting plays.
Matt Slater, ST: Slater has had a tremendous season on special teams, but he's probably never going to get the attention he deserves.
Those are just a few of my "unsung" heroes thus far in 2014. Who are yours?
