The primary goal for the rest of the season -- building a functional offense around Rob Johnson, making a decision possible on whether the quarterback is worthy of the contract restructuring and extension that salary capenomics mandate -- crashed to the turf at Foxboro Stadium last Sunday afternoon.'
