Default CB Antwaun Molden - Making an impact for the Patriots

http://www.projo.com/patriots/conten...Q.2ebd408.html

FOXBORO — When the NFL settled its labor issues and the players returned to work in July, Antwaun Molden was a member of the Houston Texans, a fourth-year cornerback fighting for a roster spot. James Ihedigbo, who had been a special teams standout for the Jets for four years, was a free agent looking for a job.

Thomas Welch spent the last three seasons on the Patriots and Vikings practice squads after being drafted by New England in the seventh round in 2008. He was out of a job, then brought back by New England in early September. He was promoted to the active roster, cut two days later and re-signed for the practice squad. Finally, just a few days ago, he was promoted to the active roster.

Ask a Patriot fan about any of them two weeks ago, and only the most knowledgeable of fans would know about any of them. After the victory in Oakland Sunday, though, a true Pats fans should know all three.

All three saw their most extensive action ever against the Raiders and were part of an effort that brought the Patriots their 31-19 victory. Injuries forced them into action. And all three stepped up.

All are now preparing for the visit by the Jets on Sunday as contributing members of the New England rotation.

“It feels good,” Molden said. “I love the game of football. This is a good team. They brought me in for a reason. I want to do my job. I like playing football. I like to contribute.”

Molden was on the field for nearly 30 plays in the victory over the Raiders. Like Welch and Idedigbo, he got his chance because others were hurt. The Eastern Kentucky grad does not hide his excitement.

“I’m getting acclimated to the area, to the system here. I’m feeling good,” he said. “Most definitely this is a great organization. I’m just happy to be part of it. I want to do my job and help any way I can.”

Ihedigbo, a UMass grad, is an interesting story. Both his parents both have doctorates and moved here from Africa. Ihedigbo grew up near UMass and has used his athleticism to build his career. He was a special teams player for the Jets and is doing the same thing with the Patriots. He and Matthew Slater are the only Patriots playing on all four of New England’s special teams. Because of injuries, Ihedigbo also is seeing time at safety.

He knows the Jets-Pats rivalry from both sides. He can testify better than almost anyone about the difference between Rex Ryan and Bill Belichick.

“In philosophies, they’re two different coaches,” Ihedigbo said. “Rex will be Rex and Bill will be Bill. They’re both successful in their own ways.”

Welch has been bouncing around for two years, always on the edge, on practice squads. Against Oakland, the Pats had only one tight end active, Rob Gronkowski. Welch, who spent some time as a tight end at Vanderbilt (after playing quarterback in high school) was activated and pressed into regular duty as a blocking tight end while wearing number 66.

“I played some tight end in college, but it’s been at least four years (since he did so),” Welch said. “Mostly I was just blocking, so it’s pretty similar to O-line. But going in motion, I had to remember how to do that a little bit. I had to dig into the memory bank little bit.”

He is still catching up with everything that has happened to him.

“It’s been a crazy couple of weeks,” he said. “I’m glad I’m here and whatever they need me to do, I’m going to do. . . They said they needed someone to come in, throw some blocks. Obviously, we have some people down, so they told me to be ready and I was.”

Ihedigbo, Welch and Molden are examples on how teams have to make adjustments as the season rolls along. Offensive coordinator Bill O’Brien spoke about it the other day. “On game day, you know you have 46 guys on a roster. Like Bill [Belichick] always says, ‘You’re trying to make use of everybody, and each guy on the team has a different role.’ Some roles are bigger, some roles are not quite as big, but each is hugely important,” O’Brien said.

I had Molden making my final 53....I thought he looked better than some of the other corners we kept...Plus I would have liked to see this coaching staff develop the physical tools that he has..

Molden's problem here was being healthy. If you can't stay healthy you can't play. I think the organization just ran out of patience with him

He used to be apart of the worst secondary in league history and now he's with the Pats terrible secondary... I would say poor guy, but I think he's had his opportunities.

I think that's BS. There have been multiple times when we were told he wasn't healthy and then you'd see him on special teams. If someone is healthy enough to do collisions on special teams, they're healthy enough for anything else the team can throw at you. Personally, I think he probably never worked on "being a pro", or at least Kubiak's vision of it, so he never got a real chance on game days. I think the entire thing was mishandled by Kubiak. But we'll see.

Default Re: CB Antwaun Molden - Making an impact for the Patriots

I would bet that the real factor for change in Molden is coaching and motivation. I don't think even Darelle Revis would have looked good in our secondary last year.

Sure seems like people are overreacting trying to turn this into some reflection on coaching. He was only in the game because of injuries. He had a whopping 2 tackles and 0 passes defended.

That's why I said "we'll see" at the end of my post. I suspect (don't know) that the Molden situation was mishandled by Kubiak. And I'm thinking that a good coach will turn Molden into a player.

We'll see.

Belichick is just better, though. He did the same with Jabar Gaffney, who we all know what he was all about.

Same reason dude could take Randy Moss and be productive, and when he starts acting up, he's gone without much fanfare.

Kubiak could not do the same, but that's not a knock against him. Most coaches cannot do what Belichick seems to accomplish with has beens, retreads, and no names. Obviously having a HoF QB helps, but Belichick had a hand in his development, too.

I would readily concede Belichick is the better coach but I still think this is stretching. He didn't do anything with Gaffney that I can tell. Gaffney had 632 yards here with a miserable QB. He never sniffed that in NE. Hell his best year of 875 yards came under a coach who was so miserable he got fired after two seasons. As far as I can tell Moss just turned himself on and even Belichick couldn't keep the switch on.

More than anything it should make us feel better about the talent we do have if our guys we cut can make it somewhere else that means we must have a glut of talented secondary players right

I'm with Icak-

There's no question who the better coach is but Antwan Molden finally seeing a field has nothing to do with it.

yeah, not really defending Gaffney, I just remember a couple of playoff games where he went off and back-to-back 100+ yard games in clutch situations. That always stuck in my mind, because he never seemed to be much with the Texans.

As far as Moss, yeah, the switch and all, but someone had to motivate him to push that switch, and now he's got the 23 TD/season record along with helping Brady set the 51 TD/season record.

I do agree it's stretching with Molden, but I do think that if anyone can squeeze any more out of him, it'll be Belichick & co. That was all that I was really trying to say.

I never understood what Kubiak saw that he didn't like in Gaffney. I thought that was a mistake at the time.

Of course Gaffney's numbers weren't that great in NE. When he first got there he was behind Moss, Welker, and Stallworth and then there was a TE so he was like their 5th option. He was playing a lot better there than he was with the Texans though and looked a lot more focused. No question about that at all.

As far as Molden goes, I won't expect to see much out of him in NE or anywhere else for that matter.
