Twitter Rumor out there now from a guy at NFL films that the patriots put in a claim on Jason Babin

Source? Not surprising considering how weak they are in the defensive end department at the moment.

I heard 16 teams put in a claim on him.

Evidently, the Pats weren't one of them. 

I wonder how much of it was scheme related.  Babin was productive in a system that was different than what the Pats are used to running.

I don't think I've ever heard a "Lets Go Patriots" chant before (home or away).

Encouraging game today.  Defense got a little lucky on a couple of bad coverage plays, but overall the D was average against the pass and good against the run.  I'll take it.  The offene with no Gronk, a still recovering Hernandez and an absolutely desimated line, was good enough and could be great by year end.

Pats win division, put together a nice game on D, put together a nice long run-oriented drive. A lot to like. Biggest concern going forward is the O-Line, IMHO.

Congrats to the Pats on their divisional title, and to Tom on his record.

They still have a lot of loose ends to tighten up if they want to go deep into the post-season, but each week seems to bring improvement.

TG for Big Vince and Hernandez yesterday. ;)

I'm a little worried about gronk. I know we are supposed to be getting him back in time for the post season but you never know. Id hate for us to not go the distance because of in unhealthy gronk two season in a row.

Yes but I think with this one, at least his mobility won't be a factor.  But it could definitely hurt his in line blocking

I wouldn't get too excited. Tannehill is a horrible quarterback at this stage of his career.

Yeah but still the dolphins have a decent defense and always play us tough in december. Bottom line is our offense didn't play well and our defense did. We needed a game like this in my opinion

Especially with the texans coming up next. You're not gonna blow teams out by 30 points every game and you need to be able to win the close ones and they did that finally.

Bummer to lose Edelman. He provided so much versatility. Wish the pats had been working Shane Vereen in on PR and KR.
