The New England Patriots reestablished themselves as legitimate title contenders by picking up a pair of wins before their bye, find discount urispas but that doesn’t mean all their issues evaporated with those two marks added to the win column.
Some remain, find discount urispas and they'll need to be addressed during the second half of the season. Find discount urispas 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 urispas New England could play it straight and place him opposite Devin McCourty at cornerback, find discount urispas with Steve Gregory and Patrick Chung behind them at safety. Find discount urispas Or coach Bill Belichick could use Talib and rookie Alfonzo Dennard at corner and drop McCourty next to Chung at safety, find discount urispas where many talent evaluators believe he is best suited.
Either way, find discount urispas a decision doesn’t have to be made immediately, find discount urispas 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 urispas Now, find discount urispas those same observers often utter Chad Ochocinco’s name.
Neither comparison is fair. Find discount urispas Lloyd lives somewhere between the two extremes, find discount urispas teetering from spectacular to maddening. Find discount urispas One play, find discount urispas he’ll make an acrobatic catch on the sideline that would be outlandish in a video game. Find discount urispas The next, find discount urispas 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 urispas according to ProFootballFocus.com. Find discount urispas His drop rate is the third highest in the NFL.
To be fair, find discount urispas some of the problems reside with quarterback Tom Brady, find discount urispas who on several targets has struggled to get Lloyd the ball where it needed to be. Find discount urispas 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 urispas 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 urispas 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 urispas 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 urispas He suffered an ankle injury in Week 2 that doesn’t appear to be getting better. Find discount urispas He came back and played in Weeks 6 and 7, find discount urispas but was shut down after suffering a setback.
It’s now said his ankle is no longer responding to treatment. Find discount urispas The bye week could be enough to get him back on track, find discount urispas but if not, find discount urispas 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 urispas 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 urispas Ridley was averaging 20 touches per game. Find discount urispas That figure has dropped to 16 since.
While that’s not a drastic dip, find discount urispas it’s enough to make a difference. Find discount urispas And, find discount urispas considering Ridley leads the league in runs of 15-plus yards, find discount urispas every lost touch is a lost opportunity.
