    Anyone notice that Mickens took the #3 WR and Chad Scott the #4. Do you think this is temporary? Do you agree?

    Not complaining, Mickens looked good out there.

    Chad Scott has been battling an injury and was listed on the team's injury report last week. He's not 100% and Mickens has been in street clothes all year until now, so he is 100%. I don't read anything into it more than that. Chad Scott has been excellent this year.

    In addition, isn't Mickens usually a nickel-slot CB? Well the #3 WR is usually the slot WR (i.e. Troy Brown), so it does make sense on that level too.

    Phil Simms described Mickens as one of the best cover corners for slot receivers that he's ever seen. I was kind of miffed at why he was on the street so recently if that was indeed the case. But hey, what do i know?

    Mickens was on coverage. Mo Lewis saw this and knew that he was free to go after the QB. When he saw that Drew Bledsoe was going to stay in bounds, he hit him and heard a loud 'pop'.

    Molewisrocks...but so too does Raymickens rock...

    Could you word the title differently next time, please?

    Having valuable players "out" this time of year is scary.

    By the way, Mickens is a fine nickel back who's 5'8" 180lbs.

    Chad Scott is 6'1" 205 and can play safety as well as corner.

    With Rodney out and Troy on offense, we need them both badly and their relative playing time has nothing to do with each other.

    They simply are opposites as far as our DB line up goes.

    With BB it's ALL about matchups. Chad Scott for some, Mickens for others (injury status aside)

    Amen to all that Ray just posted.

    I think both players (who are very different) are really under the radar, but crucial to the Pats in these playoffs.

    I was concerned re: Chad Scott's leg injury but he seemed to be moving around well yesterday.

    Mickens played a critical part in Samuel's interception. Hasn't been mentioned here but BB mentioned it when asked about Samuel's 11th.

    No problem, man. Just certain buzzwords you don't want to read.

    There are some annoying posters who write misleading titles on purpose to get attention and I'm sure you find them annoying too.

    I kind of wish we had 1 more CB/safety type right now with Rodney and Wilson out.
