Guess who is coming back from suspension next week?
I think he is already back.
Don't tell anyone he came back Monday...LOL
Bye weeks are tough.
I mean that he'll be PLAYING next week.
Brandon Deaderick is back already?
Three of the Patriots four best defensive efforts occurred when Spikes was out.....hmmmmmmmmmmm.....interesting
Gotta love getting Spikes back...i have a feeling he's going to make some big plays come playoffs
Bears/Cutler: in the snow where the Patriots jumped out early and Chicago ended up mothballing the running game (only 14 runs all game)
Packers: Packers ran the ball (38 for 143), and a backup QB shredded the defense
Bills: 20 carries for 125. The key was stopping the passing game, which is not when Spikes is in the game anyway.
Dolphins: scored 14 points or fewer in 4 of their last 5 games
Guyton makes plays but spikes will be replacing him so you think we will more plays from Spikes then guyton.
anyway , after suspension there is a 10 day excemption time. So we will not be allowed to pratice and do anything till wednesday of next week.
There is a seven day roster exemption for Spikes while he gets back into shape, which means the team can have 54 players on the roster, as far as the rest of it, I have no idea what you are talking about.
in fact, I was so sure that you were wrong that I found an article saying that Spikes practiced this week:
Our weak link is the line and run defense. Welcome back Mr. Spikes. He should really help in that area.
Glad he is back!
He is strong in the middle and I expect him to walk right back into the starting line-up. I am a bit concerned about Moore/Cunningham being out this week as I think they are the strongest we have on the outside (and just possibly better than TBC/Nink rushing the passer) and signing Murrell makes me wonder if either Moore/Cunningham might not be back next week.
Spikes doesn't replace Guyton.
Altho Guyton doesn't normally play ILB....I thought he was playing inside during Spike's absence....
Fletcher played some there too I believe.....
Guyton may score the flashy touchdowns, but it is Spikes who does the dirty work up front.
I watching Guyton during the Dolphins game, he got pushed back on just about every running play.
beat me to it... what a stupid comment
I thought we were semi screwed when Spikes got suspended
I like Guyton in passing situations
It's that he get's utterly destroyed trying to shed blocks against the run that haunts me
