    I'd really like to know. Are there any matchups that favor us at all or is this as bad as it looks on paper?

    Ball Control, don't make mistakes and limit the big plays.
    As others have said, Denver D's in not that good and I am not sold on Cutler.
    It's a very winnable game.

    I think that the Pats offence will build on the last few drives versus SD. They were able to finally move the ball. Also, I'd say limit the chances of getting beat on the deep passes. It feels like the games never gonna get here. I gotta work from 11:30am to 7:30pm so that will "kill" some time for me.

    I feel this same way. I think the Pats should score early though so Cassel doesn't have to play from behind. The keys to me are sustained scoring drives from the O, and the D's ability to limit those big pass plays that killed last week.

    Maybe it's too obvious, but maybe Cassel will play better with a lead? In all of his games he's started, hasn't he had to come from behind each time?

    It all starts with the pass-rush. As invisible as it has been all year long, it's time to start sending some disguised blitzes at Cutler because if we don't, Cutler, Brandon Marshall and Eddie Royal are going to have a field day.

    In addition, it's time for Richard Seymour to step up, he's been non-existent since the Jets game. I'm keeping a close eye on him tonight.

    Which ever team executes better on Monday will win. Both teams will have oppertunties and which ever team capitalizes on them the most consitantly will prevail.

    Executing Cutler would definately improve their chances.

    A bright spot is that Brady was never really able to move the ball against Denver (other than that one monday night in Denver). So, Cassel won't be much of a drop off there. Whoever runs the ball better should win. Hopefully, Denver won't jump out in front because Gillette will turn into a cemetery.

    It would be great to the fans to get really, really loud when the Broncos are on offence. Obviously a Pats lead would help them to make some noise.

    The offense is better when McDaniels cuts loose and lets Cassel be Cassel.

    The defense is the issue. I agree with the other poster on pass rush. The Pats will just get picked apart unless they can get pressure on Cutler.

    In order to beat Denver we have to be commited to running the ball & with only Morris & Faulk available I just don't see that happening. Once Denver takes an early lead it's gonna be a long night!

    Actually I was trying to do a BB impersonation not John Maddan.

    Wow. Maybe they use the same phrasebook. Try and picture BB commentating Sunday night football...

    His knowledge of the game and ability to be objective would be amazing though.

    Letting Cassel be Cassel sounds like something that should be avoided.
