It is not an exaggeration to say this could be the most well-rounded offense they have had in the Brady/Belichick era, and yes, that includes 2007. The running game won’t match what they had in 1976 or ‘78 in John Hannah’s heyday, or even in the mid-80s with Craig James and Tony Collins. But it’s a heck of a lot better than the tap-dancing Laurence Maroney gave them five years ago, and it could be the best they’ve had since Corey Dillon was at the peak of his powers.
The Globe’s Chad Finn on Stevan Ridley and the improved Patriots running game. If you haven’t figured it out, Ridley is a serious NFL running back. He’s got the skills to be a perennial 1,000-yard rusher. He’s explosive and he fights for every yard. Those are the kind of backs I love.

Heading into 2010, things had to change. And who knew what the Patriots were going to be able to get out of Welker after ACL surgery?

Just like he does after every season, Belichick stood in front of his staff on that lousy January day and distributed the postseason tasks: study your group, and find out a way to get better. ASAP.

For quarterbacks coach Bill O’Brien, who was the de facto offensive coordinator, that meant a total retooling.

When it comes to coaching and philosophy, Belichick is not stuck in his ways. He is open to new ideas.

Great story from The Globe’s Greg Bedard on how the Patriots went from being a five-wide shotgun offense to a two tight-end offense.

DeSean Jackson staring down Nate Ebner after Ebner picked off a Nick Foles pass at the goal line and returned it 34 yards was among the most DeSean Jackson things DeSean Jackson has ever done. Getting up and celebrating like he won the Super Bowl after catching a pass in front of Sterling Moore also makes the list.
Why would you ever stare down Nate Ebner?! Do you have a death wish, DeSean Jackson?!
