Anybody see what Julian Edelmann just did for the Pats vs. the Colts?  Took a 9 yard cross / slant, bounced off / broke several tackles, and picked up 18 more yards long after he should have been down. 

 

Also notice that Brady had a clear throwing lane right to him.  I was struck by that during the Pats game here against the Ravens in week 16... he had confidence that the pocket wouldn't crumble for a little while, and CONSTANTLY had huge, clear lanes to his targets.  The DBs actually didn't do THAT bad of a job defending despite the protection.  Sitting in the upper deck endzone, you could tell when he was about to complete a pass before he even pulled the trigger, because there'd be this huge lane to thow opening up and usually a target crossing in to his path.  And he didn't even put up big numbers that day.  It looks so simple when done well...

So, your analysis boils down to the Patriots had a much better offensive line than we did? Ok, I agree completely.
