Breaking down Crable's contribution
By Mike Reiss
Outside linebacker Shawn Crable arrived in New England with high expectations as a 2008 third-round draft choice, but it wasn't until Sunday that he appeared in his first regular-season game with the club.
Crable was on the field for nine snaps, playing exclusively in one of the team's dime packages (6 defensive backs) on the left edge.
Here is a breakdown of his performance:
Play: C.J. Spiller 1-yard reception on shovel pass
Crable's role: Had backside covered, trailed play away from him.
Play: C.J. Spiller 5-yard TD reception
Crable's role: Unblocked on rush, but the ball was out quick.
