    CURRAN: Talib 'Should' be ready for San Francisco
    By: Ian Logue

    It looks like the Patriots may have dodged a bullet last night after Tom Curran reported Aqib Talib may be ready to go on Sunday....

    Hope he's right. Dennard is the one I'm worried about though

    Talib 'should' be ready for San Francisco

    "The Patriots other outside corner, rookie Alfonzo Dennard, aggravated a hamstring but isn't expected to miss time. Kyle Arrington, who got trucked late in the game by teammate Justin Francis, said in the locker room after the game that he is fine."

    The Pats had control of the game. If that wasn't the case, I'm sure all three might have gone back on the field. There was no need at that point.

    Never thought I'd be happy to hear that Arrington will be back. But we need the whole "Taliban(d)" back and healthy.

    That's really great to hear! Let's hope that's accurate and they're both out there Monday

    On his diving-near miss interception in the 2nd qtr, he landed awkwardly on his side. Looked like bruised ribs or hip. Pats actually had to take a timeout as he lay on the turf. ESPN went to commercial and I went to ESPN live chat and read thankfully read that he got up and was able to walk with medical staff to the sideline. In 2010 he was IR'ed for his hip, so the concern was there.

    Good sign for Alfonzo Dennard. Source says he was in for treatment on hamstring and looked fine on his way out. No wrap or limp.

    I love the Talib and Dennard in your face type press CB's. It reminds me of the old days.

    It's really nice not to have "soft" CBs out there. I like feisty, ornery, physical CBs. You need a little bad ass and kamikaze in you to play that position well. Dennard in particular has no fear, as he showed when Talib went out and we took on Andre Johnson.

    He also showed it when he took on that cop.

    I'm only half-joking when I say that the Pats should keep going after CBs with arrest records.

    Finally we went after the right personality types - A pistol whipper and a cop puncher :)

    (no hatred, please, I'm all for looking forward and moving on from mistakes, it just amuses me).

    What the hell happened with arrington? He goes from probably the worst cb I have ever seen to me sitting here a month later worrying about if he's injured.

    He's pulling a Nink - who was horrible in the 1st quarter of the season - and then BAM! Took him a little longer, but now that he is back in the slot - he is playing some good ball.

    Agreed. If this was Hou V NE in the AFCC game, I'd bet Talib and Dennard would have played through their injuries.

    VERY GOOD NEWS!

    If we can keep a healthy secondary of Talib, Dennard, Arrington, McCourty, and Gregory, we are in really good shape for the rest of the season.

    Considering how poorly the secondary played for so many games..... then we finally get some cohesive competitive play back there, it would be too cruel for it to last only a couple of games. Talib and Dennard will be ok :rolleyes:

    Ya, and you don't know what that cop did to him either. If you are unaware of the harassment issue then you would be fooled into thinking that he's automatically guilty of something.

    Cops kill somebody every day in America with tasers and never look back. A cop was recorded punching a handcuffed woman in the face last week. Cops can be criminals and do a lot of nasty assed things to people, especially people of color. That ain't a theory.

    Excellent. I hope he stays healthy throughout the rest of the season because he is a very significant addition to the defense. He impressed me a lot in his one on one matchup against Johnson, and I think his presence gives the secondary confidence, enough so that we can send extra rushers. Perfect.

    A) he matches up better in the slot than on the outside
    B) he'll naturally look better matching up against #3 WRs instead of #2s

    His play has improved, probably as a function of comfort and confidence, and that's where the comfort and confidence are probably coming from.
