It has spent four years a visiting team in Pittsburgh and won more than 7 points have been. New England was able to follow his worst game of the season with perhaps his best with a win over the Steelers 39C26. This was another Patriots team that lost to Cleveland last week. They controlled both sides of the ball and really won easily. Rookies played an important role in this game for the Pats. Rob Gronkowski (Notes) Gronkowski not played well in Cleveland, but perhaps his best game of his young career against the Steelers. Final with five receptions for 73 yards and three touchdowns. There were two more catches penalties, an offensive pass interference call was him. Gronkowski shows that the speed, strength and body control in this game. His first TD on a seam route where they are very good and made a great catch right on the line. It is a very good track runner and can come and go quickly from cuts. He has soft hands and never see twice to catch balls. Many beginners seal ends blocked, but Gronkowski is excellent. He did 6 Sanchez Purple AFL50th jersey
a good job, both a position in line and movement. It's good to let fall in weight before the explosion and enemy contact. Is it a uniform surface. He received a well deserved break for the A + game. On a side note, there are three brothers Gronkowski play in the NFL. Rob with the Patriots, Chris and Dan in Dallas to Denver. All teams will play in this week's winners. Aaron Hernandez (Notes) So far, Hernandez played very well when used in a still and a wide receiver. In this game for long. He was sacked twice, but had no catches. He scored in this game Devin McCourty (Notes) This is not the first time I wrote then McCourty has started the year. The good thing is that McCourty improved with further experience. He played a very consistent game on Sunday. His run-time support is excellent. He was credited with 11 picks in this game and I had to have at least 4 to assist with the implementation. Although not a truly great man, he attacked the race and has a great job to get rid of the blocks. He is an explosive tackler goes. He also played in the deck equipment and did a great job. Special team play spirit. In terms of reporting, which has all the tools is quick and efficient. He has excellent hips and moves very well in transition. It is a very good guy and press coverage is almost as good in the region. I see that players have a Pro Bowl corner, type in the not too distant future. Earn an A.
Brandon Spikes (Notes) spikes started since the beginning of the season. Normally, only play at the level of execution, so it is not obvious by situations. Peaks is very aggressive and defense are solid. He has very good instincts and finds the ball quickly. He did a great job of catch and release blocks and performs very well. It is a very strong tackler. Because of their natural physical abilities is ideal for playing in this defense. He plays faster than ever before, but because he lacks a high speed when you were at a senior management is the lack 4C3. When he is in the game against the passing game, a good shot and receiver has conscience. He is a good feeling in the region and is well aware. H and can never be a player in any pro, but it certainly is a player the Patriots can win with. It is a solid B in this game.
Jermaine Cunningham (Notes) How Hernndez relates to the offensive, Cunningham did not have the season he has reached in the previous games in this game is played in certain situations and showed a good passing game to pass advanced. It is low when the pin and well heads. When using good hands. Nothing discussed in this game, but I had two pressures. In general, I do not really have enough to classify seen a lot.
PittsburghThe Steelers do not have much of the season recruits Centre Maurice Pouncey play more and was getting very consistent player.
Since I spoke to him twice before this season has not paid much attention to him. It was attacks against one of the best nose in the play of Vince wilfork (notes) and more of their own place, but it would be unfair of me to try and put a note in your game when you look at a player, in the to give respect to every shot a good rating.
Emmanuel Sanders (white) The other rookie, was playing a lot in the Pittsburgh game Emmanuel Sanders, SMU, the Steelers third round. Sanders suffered a lot of playing time because of a violation of Hines Ward (notes). He played both wide receiver and returned kicks. Sanders is a legitimate kick returner in the NFL. to run at the speed and instincts and quickly reached the seam. It also shows the patient and allows to read a good job of his blocks. Kahn had six returns back for an average of 43 Polamalu white jersey
26 yards and two punt for 22 yards.
As a receiver, he started slowly but came on as he felt better. He finished with five receptions for 41 yards and a touchdown. In the first half was a game where he was the main beneficiary in the end zone. The game was a sloppy track at the end of the ball and looked at the thing for him. He followed with a few lines to the speed of Nice and the speed and the ability to adjust well to show the ball. Your route and catch the ball in the end zone was enough.
Overall, Sanders is still a talent. He left the university at the beginning and has to learn a lot, but has the physical properties are a very good receiver in the league table. I think his best position in the slot where you can use his speed and Quick's very effective.
