    realpatriots: Patriots announce 4 downgrades from Questionable to Out: Patrick Chung, Dan Connolly, Devin McCourty and Chad Ochocinco.

    Looks like Wendell at center and a very thin secondary again.

    Re: Patriots announce 4 downgrades from Questionable to Out: Patrick Chung,

    Actually, it's not paper thin. It's why they brought back Donald Thomas. He'll be the reserve center. And he's been with the team a good portion of the year. The Pats also have Nick McDonald on the practice squad and he's been there almost all season.

    And the Pats got a boost last week from Cannon being ready to go. I don't know about you, but he looked very good at RT at the end of the game. He'll be the #3 G and either the #3 or #4 Tackle depending on Light and Vollmer.

    Re: Patriots announce 4 downgrades from Questionable to Out: Patrick Chung,

    So, the ones who will be out tomorrow:
    Spikes, Fletcher, Chung, McCourty, OchoCinco, Connolly and Mallett. Still need one more.. My guess is that it will be Faulk again.. unless the Pats cut Underwood and promote Ventrone..

    Hopefully that means that Light and Vollmer are healthy enough to play..

    Re: Patriots announce 4 downgrades from Questionable to Out: Patrick Chung,

    hopefully wendell won't get pushed back like connolly does.

    is he a healthy scratch? paul perillo mentioned that it might be a matter of time before wendell takes over at center. if bb didn't IR koppen, he would have been ready by now.

    Re: Patriots announce 4 downgrades from Questionable to Out: Patrick Chung,

    with Branch also questionable with a hip injury, it does. even if he plays he'll be limited.

    meaning ramped up snaps for Taylor Price/Edelman...which actually could be a good thing because price may give us something branch didnt

    Damnit, I expect McCourty out one more time. Thought Chung would be back.

    Re: Patriots announce 4 downgrades from Questionable to Out: Patrick Chung,

    i think BB is right not rushing back mccourty or chung. even if the pats lose tomorrow, they should be able to win the rest of their games and go 12-4 at worst. all they have to do is win the division and they get an automatic bye.

    All they have to do is call Ross Ventrone over at the Monticello Motel in Natick and he will be ready to drive his pickup truck down to Philly.....

    Why are people not freaking out about this? These injuries to the D seem terrible.

    Re: Patriots announce 4 downgrades from Questionable to Out: Patrick Chung,

    Oh, you mean the lack of ILB depth with Spikes, Fletcher, and Tarpinian all out?

    Or the secondary catastrophe with Chung and McCourty being out again?

    Maybe you are referring to the offensive line issues, where we have the 3rd string center, and at least one of two starting tackles out (with the other playing miserably anyway, due to his back issues)?

    No, no, nevermind....I bet you mean the WR situation, where we basically have a doubled Wes Welker (limited in practice with 3 separate injuries in the past 3 weeks), a non-existent Branch (with his hip injury), and now Ochocinco out; along with Taylor Price and his 3 yearly snaps?

    It's just another day on the injury front here. Nothing to get alarmed about.

    Actually I was just referring to the LB and DB situation... but thanks for the pick me up!

    Can these no-names keep winning? How?

    Re: Patriots announce 4 downgrades from Questionable to Out: Patrick Chung,

    Like most of us, I was happy to see Cannon on the field last week. From my vantage point though, there were several plays where he looked unsure of who to block. Maybe it's just me.

    Re: Patriots announce 4 downgrades from Questionable to Out: Patrick Chung,

    I don't care what anyone says, I think it is very good coaching for Belichick to be able to try and successfully manage and overcome this insane rash of injuries this year. And many of them were very key players at critical positions.

    When you think about it, there are many other 'successful' franchises such as Pittsburgh, Baltimore, etc where I'm not sure they'd have the same results if given this situation. At least not to this magnitude.

    I do question many of his moves and choices, but it is kind of impressive to continue to be able to field a high-quality team with so much turnover at positions that were supposed to be our strengths.

    Agreed. This is definitely one of those games where playing with a big lead will help the defense.

    Re: Patriots announce 4 downgrades from Questionable to Out: Patrick Chung,

    I really don't know how they can possibly keep competing at such a high level, PJ...let alone continuing to win, to be completely honest with you.

    I know it will not be a popular statement, and it will sound very cliche, but it is really impressive to see such effort from both the backups/no-names AND the coaching staff.

    I seriously doubt that anyone outside of Boston has any clue as to how difficult it would be for their team to attempt to pull this off. You really don't get a good enough idea of the magnitude of the whole situation until you start to compare our starters and depth charts from the beginning of training camp.

    If Belichick somehow successfully manages these injuries by sitting some, rotating others at certain intervals, I feel as though it will be up there with one of his more successful seasons...playoff results be damned.

    Division yes..but i think the pats will need the #1 or #2 seed....IMO to get to the SB this year with this D they will need HFA

    HFA is certainly nice to have when you have depth issues.

    Hopefully VY has a Palko-like performance and we can sneak by another week with a depleted defense. Then it's:
    Indy
    Washington
    Denver
    Miami
    Buffalo

    Chung/McCourty/Spikes/Fletcher can pretty much rest up the rest of the regular season there lol Well be nice to have them back for Buffalo:cool:
