    Ian's Daily Blog - With snow covering the field in Foxboro, Patriots runningback Sammy Morris was injured during the team’s opening offensive possession and had to be helped off the field after limping off.* He’s been replaced by Laurence Maroney.

    Was he back in the 2nd half? The game was not on TV here.

    No somebody very big landed on his leg, hyper-extending his knee. He couldn't really put weight on it heading to the sideline. It's not good news but at least that is a position that we have depth at. Maroney and BJGE ran very very well today.

    Maroney had a good game looking at the stat's.
    We SHOULD be able to run on the Bucs next week. Carolina ran it like 15 of 16 plays to score one TD and they knew it was coming so.....

    I think I have seen this thread before, at least once a year.

    Nice role player, not his fault he is made out of glass.

    This could be a significant blow. The only upside I can see is that Maroney and the line miraculously start to click in Morris's absence (if the injury's major).

    Hyperextending it sideways (on the inside), almost like Mayo's injury.

    We have a pseudo bye then a real bye which will help. We can get by with Maroney, BJGE and Faulk, by the time they're all hurt then hopefully Morris or Taylor will be back.

    I think I'd prefer to run the wildcat with Edelman before bringing Patrick back :eek:

    I have no doubt it's in the playbook. To be run at some point, likely this year but at the right moment.

    Well i say that because Edelman took some snaps at QB in TC. So no doubt it at least crossed their collective minds. But maybe its just a little too much to soon.

    If your going to do it, do it against a good team like the Colts.

    I'm sure they have a plan for it - the Dolphins ***** slapped the Jest with theirs although Ronnie Brown and Edelman would clearly run very different Wildcats - or Wildpats are ours would have to be called :rocker:

    The one team i DONT want to try it against. They probably have some screwed up wildcat defense too that they only play with that wreck of players.

    I believe those TC reps was scout team stuff. BB and I think even Kraft have commented on this with something to the effect of why take the ball out of Brady's hands?
    I think the closest thing to a wildcat we would see is the direct snap play that we run to faulk on short yardage situations and maybe if they really want to get the ball in the hands of me or mini me maybe they would do some sort of end around thing where they direct snap to one of them while in motion.
