Personnel issues plague Pats

Giardi and Curran recap a frustrating game for the Patriots, both offensively and defensively.
First five games averaged. 33 points per game the last three just ninety that's a stark difference. Yards per game down over a 150 yards 340 point one the last three and greatest quarterback rating also dipping. From one on 95 to 851 of the last three games. Not the performance you're looking for. From a team that's built around. That guy Tom Brady we talk about playmakers on the opposite side of the ball on the defensive side of the ball because you look at these guys and you say. When's it gonna happen where these guys making big plays at the end of the game and opportunities to get off the field on. And they didn't do it against Eli Manning and giants' offense without Ahmad Bradshaw and Hakeem -- their two best players often. Right you didn't have a Giants team that came in here loaded for -- mean they had all those guys missing and they had a situation where they're coming on the road. Kind of a enigmatic running back Brandon Jacobs because he hasn't run well all year. Get this filly would come in here you're dealing with guys like Ballard tight -- he catches with a down the stretch. And right now and you know what if this team that's accurate that's like me. Jerod Mayo clearly isn't that Dempsey Bill Clinton. I don't love Mike you have multiple. Defense of climate right now that's what we'll obviously we'll watch tapes and goes right. Gerard Warren pile up -- school -- -- Albert Haynesworth isn't good enough we'll look back and I think Arrington what we've been an off night had a good football game. He was victimized and he's been. End up in the headlines as a guy who had a bad game but Arrington -- the other guys I mentioned but again nobody to change the tenor. Quickly it's about it's about personnel was because our guys out on the field at the end of the game that I don't think that's the way they drew it up in one of these guys out there -- that. Do we talked about that we talked about many times personnel OK Sergio rounds of their Tracy White so it is they can't be beat up because their roles are not supposed to be -- that several. However Jermaine Cunningham was inactive again this is second round pick Brandon Meriweather is playing at Chicago -- Patriots wasted first round pick on him Darius Butler. Carolina these guys to Patriots wasted the first -- excellent so if you don't wanna blame those guys go ahead don't do that. Let's -- the smoking gun as to why there on the field in the smoking gun is the Patriots have whipped.
