This week: how are all the Ex-Patriots doing? You'll note that this article is missing Willie McGinest, which was a simple editing accident. My comments are below:
Even though he hasn't been playing with them this season, McGinest joined the rest of the Patriots linebackers in taking a comfortably large step back this season. While he won't be appearing on the side of a milk carton like Mike Vrabel shortly will be, McGinest has struggled with injury this season and has only 16 tackles and 2 sacks in 7 games. On the other hand, McGinest can still serve as an assistant coach for Romeo Crennel whilst hurt, so there's some added benefit there.
Also, this was written before the crazy numbers Tyrone Poole is putting up in Oakland according to the Game Charting Project came out.

Possibly the closest Super Bowl matchup in history also poses the question: how much does it mean when certain aspects of an NFL team improve dramatically in the second half of the season?
