    Decent read, though I doubt the focus will be more on Moss. My guess is they'll bring the house and try to disrupt TB. They probably saw comfortable TB making throws against Atlanta and saw uncomfortable TB against Jests. I would think Welker is a must for game for those quick outs. Good find and thanks for posting it.:singing:

    Well, WWMM is getting there. Not there yet, but getting there.

    I don't know why the Ravens would bother with this Moss guy. I read last week that Moss is a lazy player who dogs it most of the time. The writer said he charted the plays, so I have to believe its true. I also read where he is dogging it to get out of NE to play with Brett Farve in Minnesota. It also must be true because it was on a blog funded by NBC, and THEY wouldn't lie to me......would they??????

    I agree about Welker. I think the short passing game is key for the Pats. Though I also see them going over the top on the Baltimore secondary to keep them honest, and because it will be there for the taking.

    The reason Brady was uncomfortable against the Jets and not the Falcons had everything to do with penalties. Teddy Bruschi is the only one who has hit on this perspective.

    WWMM = Wes Welker's Mini-Me?

    Can you expand, I'm not sure I'm following you. Do you mean the penalties were throwing him off?

    He uncharacteristically committed two of them himself. And they were clearly related to the real issue throughout, pressure. Something Rodney hit the nail on as the one critical difference between the JETS and Falcons games...

    I hope they're forgetting to prep for Wes Welker, Turf Ranger.

    Absolutely brilliant.

    I formally propose that Julian Edelman's nickname be "mini me". :D

    Even though Welker would look like a Midget standing next to Edelman?

    It's the concept that counts.

    If Julian Edelman and Terdell Sands could combine, they could become a wicked force on the field...

    It's also refreshing to read about the opposition respecting us.
    Not talking smack.
    Letting the plays on the field do the talking.

    Very refreshing.

    I don't recall hearing what Bruschi had to say, but I would guess it was in regards to penalties putting the Pats offense into undesirable down-and-distance situations. That results in very predictable play calling, which results in the opposing defense being able to rush the quarterback without having to honor the running game. The chances of a successful play for the offense drop dramatically as the quarterback has less time to throw the ball while at the same time the receivers are running longer routes. The end result being Brady, or any quarterback, would be less comfortable and unable to get in a rhythm with those circumstances due to the constant 3rd and 20's he was facing.
