    Ross Ventrone - DB - Patriots

    Patriots promoted S Ross Ventrone from the practice squad.
    A pretty good indication that SS Pat Chung (thumb surgery) will be out against the Bills despite his surprising return to practice Friday. An undrafted free agent out of Villanova last year, Ventrone will be making his NFL debut if he's active on Sunday.

    Anyone getting a touch edgy about the backfield ? I don't think the Bills are the 99 Rams, but they have a few weapons that could get annoying for NE on Sunday.

    In regards to Rudy Remember he got 1 sack on 1 play!!!


    Ventrone could Get 1 pick on his 1st play ever!!! Ross will play more plays than Rudy Did. (more than 1 I mean)

    maybe James Ihedigbo is gone... It could happen and Chung plays. Reports seem good w/ chung


    but I still suspect Chung is out


    w/ that open roster spot who knows what is going on???





    is Zoltan in the clear? b/c if not James Ihedigbo is on his way out. All these double moves (if it happens) they occur quickly

    No, I think Chung will be still be in there. Ross is just going to be DB depth against a spread offense that Buffalo will deploy.

    He'll be released on Tuesday and Gronk 2.0 will probably be picked back up (if he's healthy). It's all situational football with this club. We needed a DB this week against a spread offense more then we needed a gimpy 2nd TE.

    Nothing more, nothing less.

    Aren't they down 2 WRs themselves? Not that it isn't still a concern.

    Sanders I was never a fan of.


    Don't knock Ventrone until the dude is given a fair shot.

    Is Mills playing TE??? my guess is no now right? or do we still have 1 spot open?

    What in the world would activating a scrub have to do with whether Chung plays or not?

    It would mean a lot if there was just 1 spot open


    It would mean nothing if there were 2


    how many spots open were there?

    D Gronk cut Pryor IR

    that is 2 right?


    Mesko's status is still up in the air. with all things considered will Mills get a shot this Sunday or another T?

    Pryor went on IR way before D.Gronk was cut, at the same time as Koppen went on IR. Koppen and Pryor were replaced with Cohen (DT) and Adams (CB). The roster is at 53 right now.

    Ventrone is in primarily for ST. I would be surprised to see him at safety at all. He is not an NFL caliber player.

    thnx dude I am not very good at keeping up w/ the 53 and whom takes over for whom. I figured no moves were made w/ injury 1 (i could not think of 1) so I did math of the recent IR and cuts. Apparently the PATS filled ttheir voids ASAP and I missed the news.

    I still don't get it. How in the world can a STer be better off a starting safety. EVERY ONE of the safety we released is STARTING for other nfl teams now. Cancer / no cancer but they have experience in pats system and WILL definitely be better than the scrubs that are going to start tomorrow.

    I would prefer that Ventrone blow up the Bills, and the Pats cut Ihedigbo instead. ;)

    Personally, I like what i have seen from Barrett, Chung, and Sergio Brown, but I have no faith in Ventrone. If he does play, I hope he surprises everyone and I can take comfort in the fact that we have survived opponents that have put up all kind of yards the last two weeks.

    Its like BB is conditioning me in some weird way not to care if our secondary gets carved up. Rivers or any other elite qb carves us up and I'm like "so what, any qb can do that".

    Here is one of my whacked out thoughts. After teams play us like the Giants in 07, Packers in 10, Cardinals in 08, Colts in 08 etc they get this renewed confidence and get hot but now with the way our secondary is playing they aren't going to really be sure where they stand. This theory will hold true if the Chargers get blown out by the Chiefs tomorrow.

    I think that Belichick is fine with our seven defensive backs. Ihedigbo played quite a bit last week. Chung will be back soon; also the casts will come off.

    Bodden, McCourty, Dowling, Arrington
    Barrett, Brown, Ihedigbo
    =========================

    Ventrone is all about Special Teams. With so many injuries in the defensive backfield, Belichick apparently thought that we needed more help. We also brought up Tarp and signed Molden for special teams. I suspect that Adams is the emergency #8 defensive back.

    I don't expect to see Ventone playing safety tomorrow.
    ===========================
    The BOTTOM LINE is that with so many out because of injuries, more special teamers are able to be active.
