    Welcome back NEAL!! This line needs all the help that it can get. Interesting move with Mike Richardson. Wilhite must be very sick. It would be nice to see Crable on the field for a change too, but I won't hold my breath. :rolleyes:

    Great to see Neal back. This offensive line has gone down the tubes ever since he went down. Let's see how much he can help...

    A flurry? It's four, CP. Is that a flurry?.

    That's gotta suck for Connolly. A few hours away from another game check, and he get's the boot.

    Mike Reiss said on WBCN a few minutes ago that the Pats didn't have any contact this week. So if Neal plays, it will be his first contact. I still think he plays.

    Considering how little has gone on recently (and the significance of a couple of them) I'd call it a flurry :cool:

    also he said flurry, not blizzard.

    I dunno about the rest of you but if some one says we are getting flurries -- i am thinking it ain't gonna be much, might need to dust off the car but I won't need a shovel.

    Connolly was holding Neal's spot on the roster. Welcome back Neal!

    The 53rd game check is usually injury related, so I would expect not to see Wilhite. But it is also possible that against Denver, we simply wanted to have one more defensive back available. We'll know more when the inactives are announced. I haven't seem them yet.

    Yes, a flurry. Four roster changes in one day at this time of year, qualifies as a flurry.

    I'm going with flurry.

    I am guessing he in a few days he will be on the practice squad.
