The New England Patriots reestablished themselves as legitimate title contenders by picking up a pair of wins before their bye, find discount kre alkalyn power but that doesn’t mean all their issues evaporated with those two marks added to the win column.
Some remain, find discount kre alkalyn power and they'll need to be addressed during the second half of the season. Find discount kre alkalyn power Here’s a look at a few of them:
**How does Aqib Talib fit in to the picture?
**
The Patriots' move to acquire Aqib Talib from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers should – assuming the troubled cornerback avoids the dark forces that have plagued his career – immediately improve a secondary that has given up more plays of 20-plus yards than any team in the league.
The bigger question is where he will fit in. Find discount kre alkalyn power New England could play it straight and place him opposite Devin McCourty at cornerback, find discount kre alkalyn power with Steve Gregory and Patrick Chung behind them at safety. Find discount kre alkalyn power Or coach Bill Belichick could use Talib and rookie Alfonzo Dennard at corner and drop McCourty next to Chung at safety, find discount kre alkalyn power where many talent evaluators believe he is best suited.
Either way, find discount kre alkalyn power a decision doesn’t have to be made immediately, find discount kre alkalyn power since Talib has one game remaining on a performance-enhancing drug suspension.
**Can Brandon Lloyd be a legitimate threat?
**
Brandon Lloyd made enough spectacular plays during training camp to lead many observers to summon Randy Moss’ name. Find discount kre alkalyn power Now, find discount kre alkalyn power those same observers often utter Chad Ochocinco’s name.
Neither comparison is fair. Find discount kre alkalyn power Lloyd lives somewhere between the two extremes, find discount kre alkalyn power teetering from spectacular to maddening. Find discount kre alkalyn power One play, find discount kre alkalyn power he’ll make an acrobatic catch on the sideline that would be outlandish in a video game. Find discount kre alkalyn power The next, find discount kre alkalyn power he’ll needlessly flail at a catchable ball and let it fall to the turf.
Lloyd has dropped six of the 43 catchable balls thrown to him, find discount kre alkalyn power according to ProFootballFocus.com. Find discount kre alkalyn power His drop rate is the third highest in the NFL.
To be fair, find discount kre alkalyn power some of the problems reside with quarterback Tom Brady, find discount kre alkalyn power who on several targets has struggled to get Lloyd the ball where it needed to be. Find discount kre alkalyn power That’s a problem that needs to be rectified in order for the passing lanes to open up to players working the middle of the field.
When that consistency is reached, find discount kre alkalyn power the Patriots' offense should soar.
**Health of tight ends**
It’s easy to overlook this concern since New England once again has the top offense in the NFL. Find discount kre alkalyn power But things could be even better if tight ends Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez were at full health.
Gronkowski has been battling hip and back injuries that kept him down for most of the first six weeks, find discount kre alkalyn power but he finally appears to be nearing the standard he set during last year’s record-setting season after catching 14 passes for 224 yards and four touchdowns the last two weeks.
Hernandez is the bigger concern. Find discount kre alkalyn power He suffered an ankle injury in Week 2 that doesn’t appear to be getting better. Find discount kre alkalyn power He came back and played in Weeks 6 and 7, find discount kre alkalyn power but was shut down after suffering a setback.
It’s now said his ankle is no longer responding to treatment. Find discount kre alkalyn power The bye week could be enough to get him back on track, find discount kre alkalyn power but if not, find discount kre alkalyn power New England’s offense will continue to be without its biggest weapon.
**Ridley’s touches
**
Perhaps it was the result of recent game plans, find discount kre alkalyn power but it's possible running back Stevan Ridley lost the trust of his coaching staff after fumbling in back-to-back weeks against the Bills and Broncos.
Before the second dropped ball, find discount kre alkalyn power Ridley was averaging 20 touches per game. Find discount kre alkalyn power That figure has dropped to 16 since.
While that’s not a drastic dip, find discount kre alkalyn power it’s enough to make a difference. Find discount kre alkalyn power And, find discount kre alkalyn power considering Ridley leads the league in runs of 15-plus yards, find discount kre alkalyn power every lost touch is a lost opportunity.
