    Would I be Capt. Obvious if I said I could see NE utilizing it's stable of RB's to try and keep a still gelling D off the field?
    I know that "establishing a running game and controlling the clock and pace of the game" is kinda cliche, but could this be the week that they REALLY try and get the ground game going?
    This could be the day that keeping an additional RB pays off.
    Thoughts?

    Oh, after said ground game is rolling, burn Rhodes on play-action deep.

    The other way to look at it is to get a lead with the passing game and make a rookie throw into what is probably the strength of our defense. After the way we ran last week I wouldn't be very patient with it.

    That sounds equally plausible
    Oh, the possibilities.

    Let's hope so. We have to run block better.

    Kevin Faulk leads the team in all purpose yards so far this year and by many fan accounts Maroney is running hard and we know what type player Taylor is when healthy. So we have the stable of horses.

    My first guess would be that we abandon the run early and simply throw the ball and hopefully don't watch Brady get hit a lot. But I know nothing about the plan. The Jets are probably ready for screen passes.
