Knowshon has always done well in blocking and catching the ball. Now it appears he has started to run the ball like we needed. But most importantly he doesn't fumble. Turnovers are the primary reason the Patriots are as good as they look. They are +23. The next closest team is the ball-hawking Bears with two corners having career years at +16. I am on some level grateful that McGahee won't be back until after the AFCCG, because as it sits right now we are going to play them in the divisional round.
Now if we can get someone to teach him to lace his shoes properly...
You can really take the winds out of the pats defense by not turning over the ball. Not sure how you gameplan for that but if we meet them again we can't let them win the turnover battle and run the ball down our throats like last time.
People seem confident manning will do better. I don't worry about that i think we can move the ball all friggin day on the pats. My worry if we couldn't stop them at all the last 2-3 times we have played them. Last game they punished our front 7 running the ball.
