    Situational football I guess. BB must think Woods is more valuable against the Colts than Crable.

    So, Crable has been given his chance, and now Woods comes back. I'm fine with that.

    Woods was, and always will be a serviceable backup and solid STer.

    Hats off to apple streudel and BradyFTW! for calling this move yesterday - regardless of whether or not the comments were made with tongue in cheek at the time.

    I think this is a ST moves. They realize Graham is not going to get many touchbacks and Woods is a good ST player.

    Yep, Woods was always serviceable depth and by all accounts a hard-working teammate. Welcome back from the shadow roster, Pierre.

    One 6-5, 250 pound Michigan alum replaces another 6-5, 250 pound Michigan alum. I guess this means the end of Crable.

    Decent back-up, knows the system. Good special teamer. While he's not there in the pass rush department, he can set the edge just fine. The Crable experiment is the only reason why it took the Pats this long to bring him back. The Crable experiment is either a failure or is postponed. Regardless, I'm happy to have Woods back.

    Kickoff coverage has been subpar so he should help there.

    Me, too. Woods was good on STs and the one area the Stillers did well was KO returns.

    I would not be surprised to see Crable back on the roster in a few weeks even. In fact, I kinda expect it. This is likely a gameplan move, where ST is more important than an ok Rush End.

    Question - who will play left rush end? could be cunningham again. perhaps there are minute differences in gameplan that suggest that Crable is better against the Steelers but Cunningham is better against the Colts....?

    If they are pleased, I can only assume there are hockey games being played in hell.

    Yep. The numbers back your statement. Pats are 22nd on KR yardage allowed. Seems that may have factored into BB's decision to send Crable packing.

    Punt coverage has been pretty good.

    LOL somebody I can't remember who called it in the Crable thread. I think they were joking though

    Sounds good by me. Better STer, better edge-setter, therefore, better depth.

    I guess the only curious thing is all the PT that Crable got the other night over guys like Ninko and Cunningham, in the sub packages. Was the PT purely for the sake of evaluation, b/c I find it incredibly hard to believe they would use game reps against Pittsburgh for that purpose.

    i would agree with that, using young guys is one thing...but using guys JUST so they can be rated during the actual season is...interesting

    Agreed - otherwise, would it mean they don't think Cunnigham or Ninko are cutting it in the nickel? Or, rather, are they simply trying to spare guys from reps to keep them fresh for the end of the game? If yes to either, who takes those reps that Crable had the other nite, going forward?

    Woods IMO is a much better option. He did more with his time here than Crable did. And other than pass rush he is probably better at most everything than Crable and Woods put up better numbers as a pass rusher than Crable too. Clearly the PT had something to do with it but I think we saw enough PT to know Crable was likely not going to be what we hoped pre-injury.

    except for the fact that toe fungus isnt better than what it replaces.

    Good move. I'll take the guy who's good on special teams, sets the edge against the run, doesn't pass rush well and hustles all game long over the guy who's shown nothing on special teams, couldn't stop the run if he had a shotgun to help him, isn't showing much against the pass and seems to be either loafing on the field or unable to translate his speed to game day.

    Didn't notice him loafing on gameday. Interesting. Thats immediate grounds for dismissal no question.

    I'm not saying that he definitely was loafing. He was slow moving and didn't seem to be going all out, but that could be because his speed wasn't translating into the game (either because he simply doesn't play as fast as he should or because he's thinking instead of reacting). I don't know which it was, but neither is a good thing.

    Welcome back Pierre. I liked Woods (for what he was), so I'm not at all upset to see him back.

    What I find interesting is how BB is working the roster this year. At the end of the season, I'd be very interested to see/make a chart of these various moves.
