On the Thursday Night Football pregame show, analysts Marshall Faulk and Bill Cowher offered their thoughts about the current state of the Patriots. Here are their quotes.
“We have to look at him and say Bill Belichick has drafted awfully. Some of these guys that they’ve drafted, especially receivers to help Tom Brady, they’ve just not even come close to helping. When you think about the best two things that happened to Tom Brady: Randy Moss and Wes Welker. That’s it. They didn’t draft either of those guys.” – Faulk on the Patriots on NFL Network’s NFL Total Access Kickoff
“One of the biggest losses that has gone overlooked is the loss of Dante Scarnecchia. Their quarterback is not comfortable in the pocket, he’s not making connections with the outside receivers. … You can’t underestimate the importance of an offensive line coach.” – Cowher on the loss of Patriots offensive line coach Dante Scarnecchia on CBS & NFL Network’s NFL Thursday Night Kickoff
