What did Coach Bill do last year? I know he's not John Fox or anything, that he's not 100% certain to establish the ground game before he thinks about relying on pass plays to move the chains. But he has committed to the run in the past right?

I think the New England play-calling could be lagging a bit from the periods of time where they had no viable running back. During that time it seems like it was an aerial game where they spread it around and change pace with a run here or there that was the norm. Now they have a back they can pound into the defense again and again.

I agree with you Wes - from what I saw last night Bill didnt quite know how to use his new toy.

Pats have the ball in the 4th qtr, leading by 3, under 5 minutes left in the game... and they throw the ball 3 straight plays with a fresh RB (15 carries), who is known for getting better as the game wears on, basically watching?!?!? 8-o :-?

That really did frusterate me - now I heard about the KFaulk situation, but even still - that was quite questionable play calling. I dont care if it was the unquestionable Billicek. Give your stud RB the ball in that situation. :-t

Amen to that. Billichick's superbowl rings must be cutting off the circulation to his brain.

when youre put in a situation where your decisions will win or lose you the game, you go w/ what you know. For the Pats, thats throwing the ball. They know they can succeed by doing that, and are still a little worried about running. But I guarantee by the end of the year, if they are in the same situation, Dillon will get the rock. Dillon will only get better and have better stats as the year goes on

No one mentioned that the Colts' poor pass defense was comprimised even more when Mike Doss pulled a hammy. The Pats were exploiting what the Colts were giving them; Dillon will be fine. Last year they did run the ball 51% of the time with a poor RB; my thinking is that will only increase with a stud like Dillon.

Week 1 was an abberation.

Just in case anyone has forgotten, the Patriots won the game. Belichick was just doing what was working - passing the ball. Blame Belichick if the Patriots lose, not if they win. Belichick is an awesome coach who's there to win games and ultimately Superbowls, not to get fantasy players their points each game.
