Some keys to the game for our defense I'm sure other can add. McNeil and Manumaleuna vs Green and Colvin In the divisional round Seymour and TBC were dominated and LT got most of his yards rushing over that side. Covlin is a huge upgrade on that side over TBC and Seymour was rumored to be banged up, I hope he was because that was brutal, so Green should be more effective. Seau is still a great run stuffer and should be a big bonus as well. Take nothing away from McNeil and Manumaleuna because they were sensational that day. Don't over pursue. Warren and Colvin on the otherside were much better against the run but the one big mistake they made was losing contain on a screen that went for huge yards. The Chargers used the trick play against the Bears last week wth the tailback pass. Eugine Wilson He played his best game since SB 39 Sunday and is a huge upgrade over Hawkins. I think the Patriots will commit Sanders to the run which will put Hobbs and Sameul one on one in coverage. Both are much better corners when they have help over the top and Vincent Jackson poses a height issue for either of our CBs. Wilson making the right reads and helping out the corners is a must. AD vs Gates AD held Gates to 4 catches and 41 yards with the Ravens last year and should make an impact. If he can do a similar job in this game it will really put pressure on Rivers and their receiving core which is average at best.
