    We play one game at a time, and we have hope every game for a return of the injured. I suspect that we have another couple of games of playing shorthanded (well, more than "normal").

    Game 6 at home seems a reasonable game to hope to see our full offense. Certainly we hope to see Gronk, Amendola, and Vollmer back. Perhaps, we'll even see a healthy Washington. Hopefully, the kids will be further along in learning the offense.

    Ift his team can go into the bye HEALTHY at 6-3, then they will be in great position for a Super Bowl run.

    Really, they could lose the next 3 weeks against ATL, CINCI and NO (2 of them are non-conference games), but win the next 3 conference games against NYJ, MIA, and PITT (2 of them are DIVISION games).

    I fail to understand the "Let It Ride" crowd who insist on rushing Gronk or Amendola back for tomorrow's game. The risks FAR outweigh any upside against what is a crap ATL secondary.

    Just curious....when you go into "We" mode...are you visualizing as well? Like the fat high school baseball star in Trouble with the Curve.
    ""Hush I'm visualizing...I'm hitting home runs, signing endorsement deals, & banging chicks.."
    Is the "We" mode a weekend thing for you or an all consuming 24/7 full transformation into a Patriots player. If the latter is true...can you go ask Amendola why he is made of glass. Thanks in advance

    I apologizing for presuming that we all want to see these players back. Apparently, you are an exception.

    We would indeed be in great position at 6-3. The game that we need to be healthy for is the MIA game, a critical game. Depending on Miami's record, even 5-4 is a reasonable position if we are healthy.

    Going into those two divisional games week 7 at NYJ and week 8 home MIA with a HEALTHY Gronk and Amendola is crucial.

    The immediate gratification crowd doesn't understand that it is more important to win the war than it is to win the battle.

    We will have a full offense without one of running backs. We were without Bolden and Washington for Hame One. We are likely to always have one running back or more injured. It is a function of the position.

    You seem to be trying really, really hard to come off as a jerk. Consider it mission accomplished.

    Sigh. The critics are hammering the Pats for rushing Gronk back to action last season AND holding him back this season! Damned if you do, damned if you don't.

    A non-conference road game is not that important in the big picture.

    MOST of those criticizing the patriots for not playing Gronkowksi post on patriot message boards.

    I really want this W to show the NFL the pats can hang. Because you know if they lose..here comes the "we can only beat the bad team". But really who cares. They will be in the playoffs anyways

    I would like to see the rookies just have a monster game tonight. They have been working on the red zone this week so hopefully we have more Tds today.
