    The theme of Monday night's game should be "redemption" - here's why:

    1) The Pats need to get back on track after the debacle in San Diego. Not just Cassel either - all players and coaches. We're facing a potent passing attack that will certainly challenge our secondary - time to step up. Shanahan is one of the best coaches out there and will provide a great test for us -our team needs to answer the challenge.

    2) Our history with the Denver Broncos is "painful" at best. 3-16 over the last 25 years and countless embarrassments against this team. They've dominated our Brady-led teams with lesser QB's and it's time to turn the tables on them.

    3) THE FANS. We were all ripped by the national media after the Miami game. Here's our chance to show what we're made of in front of a national audience. BE LOUD. GET CRAZY. They need our support against a really potent offense. Pretend it's the Colts for all I care - just make a difference.

    Sorry aint happening. They couldn't get pressure on Rivers or cover the 4th tier Chargers receivers. Denver has a better O-line. And two of the best if not the best wideouts in the league. Unless the Pats can keep the ball for 40-minutes it's Denver by at least 14.

    Winning Mon. nite could be called redemption, but losing Monday nite would be more of a referendum on the quality of the fans in attendance than a verdict on how the rest of the Pats season will play out. I agree wholeheartedly that this team needs FANS, not fans.

    It's amazing how things have changed regarding this matchup - a few years ago Pats fans thought we could handle Denver easily...and the team embarrassed themselves. Now things don't look so good for New England....could we be in for another suprise Monday night?

    If the secondary doesn't step up they will get torched,or maybe,just maybe,some kind of pass rush develops.....I would like to see some kind of improvement,don't expect perfection.

    We can't beat Team A because we didn't beat Team B doesn't work.

    Jets beat Dolphins
    Patriots beat Jets
    Dolphins blowout Patriots

    We can beat the Donkey heads because we got killed against worse teams like SD and Miami. Makes sense.

    The call was awful, but San Diego still had their chance to STOP Denver, then stop them again on 4th down, then win the game after that with a FG.

    If they were really that much better they wouldn't have allowed 476 yards of total offense, and they wouldn't have been in that position.

    But that's a different argument. We'll see what happens when we play later in the year in San Diego.

    As for this being a redemption game for the Pats, I agree.

    For some reason, Denver is 5-1 against the Tom Brady led Patriots since 2001, but I don't know how sure I am right now when they are being led by Matt Cassel.

    I really don't think this will be a blowout by any means, rather a 3 point game in either direction. This is definitely a winnable game for New England though, and I'm confident, but I'm a little nervous. :cool:

    Typically, the Pats play good after a bad loss. I see some schemes put in place to try to stop the long passes from killing us again. From a offensive aspect, I see some building off the last few drives sunday night versus the Chargers, when they could finally move the ball.
