agree on all counts. NE has really not often been elite on either line, but they've always had Bill Belechik as the coach.
But I will say one thing. Many people have undestimated the prodigious offensive talent at skill positions that that team has had over the years.
No one is saying they won the game because of JG. But he is a threat.
You saw the same thing I saw.
But about a month ago, I saw an amazing elite game by JG beating NO in an exceedingly important game that helped them win home field. It wouldn't have been so easy for them to go into Lambeau last week IMO.
