    I REALLY hope that this time around he is close to, or at 100%.

    I'd rather him sit this game, and the next one if needed, as long as he is 100% against Hou and SF (and the playoffs for that matter).

    The last time he saw playing time was in Seattle. If he's not 100% by now, there's something much more serious with the ankle than we'll ever know. Losing Gronk definitely was not good, but at least we get Hernandez back to shoulder some of the load for that loss.

    You got that right. Pats can run it down the Jets throats all night if they want to. They'll figure out a way to win without Ahern.

    But I don't think the Pat's do a lot of worrying about putting guys in when they're not 100%, though. If he is a go, he goes. Seems they don't worry too much how players come out after the game, much less whether they'll be available for two or three weeks from now.

    Shotgun snugs with Welker, Lloyd, Hernandez, Edelman, and Woodhead in the backfield.

    The smallest, shiftiest offense ever created!

    Hoping Edelman can continue to build off last weeks performance after taking over for Branch. If he can do that I think it will add to the Hernandez return.

    It was really nice to see Edelman take the next step put together a consistent, high performance game.

    I also thought that Lloyd looked like he was also taking the next step into becoming a real part of the receiving core.

    Anyone know if Salas made an appearance? I know his name didnt come to my attention in the first half.

    Ya, this is good news. I just hope that this time they are not rushing him back because Gronk is injured!

    I hear ya. I just hope he doesn't re-aggravate it for sake of these Jerks. Just not worth it. If he does, we will lose him for much longer on the long run.

    We need a Jimmy Graham type game from AHern on Thursday. A between the numbers vertical nightmare macth-up for opposing LB's and Safeties. That should more than fill the Gronk void.

    Make ready the safe and get your umbrellas!

    It'll be nice to have him back, however much he plays. Just having him dress will give the Jest extra homework. I like it.

    That's like saying I hope Cromartie doesn't forget to pull out.

    We know it's going to happen.

    Football players play football my friend. If he's healthy and it isn't pointless to have him out there, he'll be out there. His reaggravating it can't be helped if it does happen.

    He played the week after that against the Jets.

    One of the local reporters (Bedard or SMY, I think) said that AHern had been held out the past couple of weeks against his wishes. I got the impression he thought he could play effectively but the Patriots were being ultra cautious so I am expecting to see an effective AHern.

    I agree, but another way to look at is if we win this game and take one from the Dolphins we are pretty much guaranteed the division which gets us in the playoffs. The Houston game is important for a tie breaker if it comes down it. A loss to SF would suck, but wouldn't hurt us as bad in conference seeding. I just don't want any set backs. I wonder if the Gronk injury factored in this decision?

    TE Aaron Hernandez has played 57 of 59 snaps tonight (including penalties). A sign that he is fully recovered from right ankle injury.

    yeah...well, he LOOKED like he was about 3/4's speed with NO cutting ability on a few passes where he was isolated...and that penalty on the pushoff was a bad mental mistake...he HAD position already but just had to push off on that big mouthed Landry who was yapping like a mongo moron all game

    Hopefully it's just rust but he looked like he had a little hitch in his giddyup or almost a limp at times. Tens days between starts and another start against Miami will probably do him good.

    and this factual observation only serves to illustrate just how DEEP the offensive talent on this team is...and to be honest, I knew a little bit about Fells before the Pats signed him but seeing is believing...he is a quality offensive player...he made a catch and run in the 4th quarter that broke their will

    If he was limping or had any issues with the ankle..he wouldn't have played. Hell from what we are hearing he was being held out against his will for caution. Chalk it up to rust for now
