I know to many it seems a dream at this point in the season. Looking at the injuries PATs have and teams like Chargers and Ravens it seems difficult. But here are a few thing that I feel need to happen to make it a reality. 1. PATs need to Clinch the Division then get injured starters healthy and other starters rested if possible. It would be nice if PATs could clinch this week but that won't happen without help from the JETs I'm thinking the PATs will need to win the next two games to be able to rest starters. They may have to do it without Watson and Wilfork. 2. Three players have to really step up. Wright for Wifork and Thomas for Watson. This has been in past the time that second stringers have had a chance to excell and as result PATs had better depth going into Playoffs. The third guy is Jackson. I really think he needs to contribute in a big way if PATs are going to have the fire power to take on teams like Ravens and Chargers. 3. Rodney needs to be healthy. he will have probably two weeks to knock off the rust. Can he do it? I am not sold on any of the other Safties. Hawkins will be fine with Rodney in there. Rodney is crucial to stopping the run. With Seau gone the run D has not looked good. Rodney can change that if he is healthy. 4. Other players that need to get healthy and I don't care if they need to rest the next 3 weeks. Wilfork, Watson, Hobbs, Graham, O'Callaghan. These guys need to be as close to 100% as possible. 5. PATs need to win the next two games ... especially Jacksonville ... in order to gain a high degree of confidence. The substitutes need to meld in and the team need to soldify in the next two weeks. 6. The front seven needs to come together and show they can stop the run. I was not impressed with Banta Cain last week and I hope there are changes but I do not know how this unit can play like they did when Seau was in there. Maybe Rodney is the only hope. 7. PATs need to put it all together and make a strong showing in wild card weekend. I am really hoping the injury report is empty at that point. If all of the above happens I think PATs will have a real good shot. They will be competitve with Chargers and Ravens. Is this too much to hope for?
