It’s crazy how they have gotten absolutely nothing from the TE position the last 2 seasons

Aaron Hernandez would be 29 right now and still contributing at a high level if he didn't commit murder and/or suicide

Why did Damien Harris only have 11 carries today?

The OL wasn't getting the shove on in the middle. If you notice all of Harris' good gains were when he bounced it to the outside. The Texans clearly came in with a great run D game plan, which is frustrating given how they've been murdered on the ground this season. 

I think we abandoned it too early, of course, but it wasn't working that well

Didn''t the Texans also lose two big bodies up front after the Pats went away from the run? It was never a three score game so even if the game plan wasn't as dreadful as it looked at first glance, they had plenty of reasons to go back to it, particularly with the blitz pickup failures. Also, can someone confirm whether Burkhead is better than White as a 3rd down back. Not sure if Sweet Feet was to blame for many of the pressures but I wonder if the Burkhead injury really hurt the Pats.

Typo, although Sweet Fate as a nickname for James White isn't so bad.

Yeah - I don't want to bring back those memories.

 

But if we do then no way would we have had the cap room for all the pieces if he stuck around. Would Gronk have stayed healthier with someone to spell him? Only sure thing is that Aaron's CTE would have been even worse by this point.

It's so odd, considering how BB has valued the position in the past.

Asiasi is a typical case of BB trying to redshirt a rookie like he did with Harris last year.

Yes and it drives me nuts. Especially this year.

Ok This bugs the heck out of me. BB watched TB for 20 years. The GOAT. The only way to stop him was to pressure him. So why the fudge does he rush 3 guys all day and watch the QB rip the secondary apart.

We are all posters and we knew by the 1st Q that is wasn't working. It baffles me!

It can only be because he wanted more resources deeper. Or feels 4 or 5 still wouldn't get home, so chose to spend the resources in the secondary

Got too cute with the talent evaluation and draft selection strategy. Just terrible.

Yeah I remember reading what Tom Curran said when he asked BB about whether he will draft a TE (a couple years ago). BB mentioned it's the toughest position after QB to learn with the steepest learning curve when in the pros. He didn't rule it out, but his language suggested he weren't going to consider it. Curran said BB looks to go via FA to get TEs rather than draft, unless worldies come along (like Gronk and Nandez were). 

 

So I think that's ludicrous and if we need a TE, like we do, we should draft one higher. There have been opportunities. They won't be Gronk but they'll be SOMETHIIIINNNGGGGGG!!!!
