Welcome to PatsFans.com

I have a feeling that Stephen Neal might not play in this game.

    He didn't finish the game and he's been limited all week. I'd rather have a healthy Hochstein at guard than a gimpy Neal.

    I have an inkling that it will have zero impact on the outcome of the game, whether he plays all, none, or some of the game.

    LOL nice.

    I hope Neal is good to go, but if not, we'll just play the same as we always do.

    There is little dropoff when Neal doesn't play, and the reps are had by Yates and/or Hockstein.

    I think you mean 'false start'. Encroachment is a defensive penalty.

    Neal has played, what, 50% of the snaps this year? You're telling me there's a noticeable drop off from him to Hochstein/Yates? If you made a list of indispensable players on offense, Neal would be 10th or 11th.

    Btw, in the hands of Dante Scarnecchia, one pretty much is exactly the same as the next. These guys are all smart, and all rather limited athletically. What makes them good is their time spent playing together. Hochstein is kind of like a 6th starter, so your sarcasm is somewhat misplaced.
