    Would love to see Troy make something happen tonight.

    I am surprised Eugene is inactive instead of Troy, will Chad be running back kickoffs tonight with Hobbs nursing a groin injury during the week?

    I think it is a sign that Merriweather has surpassed him as the backup at safety.

    Re: Pats Inactive (Chad, Troy active)

    Might be a homer thing to say, but I'd much rather see Welker running back kickoffs and punts. As quick as he is, he might be able to make a few things happen on special teams.

    Eugene, my binky why the hell do you always have to get injured! Doesn't really matter though seeing as he's lost his job as starter to a rising James Sanders.

    Hmm, maybe Jackson takes over some of Hobbs special teams duties.

    Oh, and last year against Jacksonville was among the few times NE's used Jackson at returner...

    Pretty good inactive list, a little surprised Wilson is inactive. I think it shows there is a pretty good shot this is his last year with the Patriots.

    Considering Geno wasn't on the injury report, I think he just sucks.

    I take two very good signs from this development:

    1) Wilson being inactive (assumed a healthy scratch) means that Willie Andrews is good to go. Why is this significant? Andrews (IMHO) is a better KO/P gunner than Eckel and if we had no Eckel AND Andrews, I'd have been more concerned about ST coverages.

    2) The right side of the OL that we have been missing the past 4 weeks (Neal, Kazcur, K.Brady) is back and ready to kick ass!!!!!!!!!

    Re: Pats Inactive (Chad, Troy active)

    Wilson's a cover corner, not a mauler. For this game, he's really not as good a fit as the more physical players against the run.

    Re: Pats Inactive (Chad, Troy active)

    I agree.

    I disagree with Pats1 saying "he sucks". Actually, I think it would be a great situation if the Pats can get him next year for low money as a CB (his natural position).

    Re: Pats Inactive (Chad, Troy active)

    doubt he comes back. hes lost a lot of playing time..the market for safeties is weak and we have his spots filled out

    he'll make decent money elsewhere.. even though he hasnt played much this season

    Some possible gameplan conclusions:

    on O: spread em out - 7 WR's active. Make their weak backup DB's cover the likes of Welker, Troy, even maybe CJ. Lots of 1 back sets.

    on D: Expect a heavy dose of 3-4, with considerably less nickel/dime packages. We won't see much of the 4-3 either. Take away the run game, and force Garrard to beat us through the air. Sounds solid to me.

    Counting down the minutes...
