New England Patriots Mailbag -- How the new guys will fit in - ESPN Boston QB - agreed; RB - I'd rather have Bolden or some other Big Back instead of Addai; FB - agreed, because of his versatility; WR - I'm hoping that Stallworth & Gonzalez can supplant Slater & Branch; TE - agreed; OL - I'm hoping that Don Thomas & Nick McDonald can supplant Koppen & Wendell, and that Waters returns. If he does, then I'd drop either Stallworth or Gonzalez. DT - agreed; DE/OLB - agreed; LB - I'd rather have Carpenter than Tarpinian; CB - I'm hoping that Marquice Cole can supplant Will Allen; S - If Barrett can stay healthy & show that he actually wants to tackle somebody, then I might keep him ahead of Ebner, though Ebner's kamikaze ST skills & position potential might be too compelling to risk placing on waivers, esp. if Slater is shown the door. (Hey, I can dream, can't I?) Unfortunately, injuries have a way of spoiling all of the best-laid plans, but that's how the final 53 look to me right now.
