    Using Reiss's info (offense here, defense here), the youth movement is readily apparent.

    The defense started five first or second year players, and another three third year players, with only Wilfork and Wright on their non-rookie deals. The offense was a little bit older as only three first or second year players started, and another non-RFA eligible (Connelly) player was a starter. All four 2009 second rounders started and showed that they belonged on the field. Throw in significant contributions from Tate as well as the special teams support from Mesko and Ingram, and youth is being served, especially on defense.

    Speaking of rookies, anyone have a feel for Cunningham's play against the Bengals??

    He seems to have the athletic ability, hustle, but looked to me that he took himself out of the play frequently by going upfield too far.

    It would be interesting to follow Montario Hardesty for he was the RB that the Patriots targeted in the second round (but Cleveland nabbed him first). As a "consolation prize" the Patriots took Spikes. Hmmm.

    I have no faith in the Patriots ability to pick RBs so (right now) I prefer the Spikes pick. We shall see....
