Am I crazy or did Wilfork miss a lot of time?

    Im interested to see if Reiss was tracking the defense snaps like he has the past few weeks. I saw a lot of Mike Wright in there which seemed to be b/c of the way the Colts play with a lot of passes and stretch plays. The colts dont really smash the ball up the middle too much which is where Wilforks value lies.

    It could be I just paid attention at the wrong times, but in the second half I noticed no #75 in the middle several times. Anyone else? I could be wrong...

    I noticed a lot of Mike Wright on the Colts first two possessions.

    A couple of times when he was running off he looked like he was limping a bit. I don't know if that had anything to do with it or not.

    I'm sure if there was something it wasn't serious - Wilfork looked unencumbered and ecstatic running onto the field at the end.

    It appeared to me that the patriots were substituting liberally all game on defense at multiple positions. You can literally ask "where was" on most plays. Rodney was coming in and out, tedy was, Vrabel was, AT was, even the line was getting spelled from time to time.

    I thought during the game that BB made a conscious decision to play for the last 10 minutes with a fresher defense by substituting during the game, to avoid what happened last year. And they were fresher.
