Ferocious  ground game and punishing defense led the club over the Patriots .   Nose tackle AWahl was in the Pats backfield all game  harrassing Brady and forcing turnovers.  Late signee Conor OBrien took an ill advised Brady pass 73 yards to paydirt to basicaly put the game away in the 3rd qt.  Tailback Ganskie had 106 yds rushing and 3 TDs to lead the offense behind stellar blocking from the veteran Fullback Scotty Davis    Davis appeared somewhat upset at not getting into the endzone on the day.  Coaching staff hinted that this would be addressed "its gotta be team over me on this club or you can hit the pavement"  one was heard muttering.   Veteran QB Ryan Walker had a very workmanlike afternoon completing 18 of 29 passes for 237 yds and a TD to slot reciever AMack who turned a short pass into a 49 yd TD at the end of the 1st half pulling away from defenders in spite of the various "injuries" he has.   " We had a very good game plan coming in and I trust my veterans and the newcomers weren't to shabby today either"   said the Coach  adding " Baltes Hanson and Juby will have to step up for us to make a late push in this division   It was almost like they weren't here."   In fairness to Baltes he was busy celebrating future Bandit Jimmy Baltes 1st birthday.  Congrats to this youngster and good to see that Dad has him on the right track with his vigorous workout program he's incorporated
