    Please post your pre-game and during game comments, knee jerk reactions, and insightful observations for today's Patriots vs Broncos game, on this thread.

    In spite of the media hype, this is really a game between the Patriots and Broncos, and not Manning and Brady. The only stat that will count will be the Patriots "W".

    The weather could be a factor:


    • This Afternoon A chance of rain. Cloudy, with a high near 57. Light west wind. Chance of precipitation is 40%. New precipitation amounts of less than a tenth of an inch possible.
    • Tonight Rain, mainly before 1am. Patchy fog after 11pm. Low around 38. Calm wind. Chance of precipitation is 80%. New precipitation amounts between a quarter and half of an inch possible
    Let's hope for a good game with no injuries.

    Unfortunatly very little rain then. I think we would benefit from it. Peyton has played indoor in his career and Brady outside. Our run game is good and we have good run stopping linebacker.

    I cannot wait for this game. I'm just trying to do anything to pass the time right now. Unfortunately, RGIII isn't playing lights out this week . . . it figures. The week I get a chance to watch him he's being underwhelming.

    Looking forward to this one I can tell you.

    Hoping to see more improvement for the rookies.

    Great to see another Brady Manning matchup. At times last year it looked a distant possibility.

    Unless Bolden and Ridley. 200 yards rushing today. Pats win.

    Looks dark and damp via the webcam; am I making too much of the view, or is this not a current image?

    I think by unfortunate coincidence I caught an old image. :mad: Confirmation bias; I wanted a soggy game so badly that I just ran with the first pic I found .

    Too bad about Hightower, but better to make sure the hammy is right then risk injuring it further.

    I hope BB didn't bench Hightower for saying he'd be a gametime decision.

    I doubt it - I think this is more a Bobby Carpenter kind of day. A linebacker who can cover short passes in the middle of the field.

    Hey, maybe Dennard will play today.

    really stinks Hightower out, but really would like to see Dennard get some snaps. I thought Dennard looked hpysical at the los in pre season

    Boo about Dont'a, but great that Gronk will suit up.

    Also inactive is Patjew (Rain [Sissy]).

    If Hoomanawanui is out, then we might see some running sets with a sixth OL.

    With only 2 TEs going into today's game, the Pats will be forced to use more passing to the WRs. This will be a chance for Lloyd to really showcase his stuff.

    It's going to be tough running the ball against Denver. They are ranked as one of the top run defenses in the league currently. They, essentially, shut down McFadden and Turner. The Steelers didn't have Mendenhall and Foster ran well on them.

    the defense will be tested in a few minutes.


    Peyton is guaranteed to have a 500 yard game.

    I'm guessing a lot of 11 personnel, would not be too smart to game plan a lot for 2 tight ends when one is a bit injured.

    Good beer :D

    After Hightower said he would be a gametime decision, at the start of the practice after his comment, BB was seen talking to Hightower in an apparent not too friendly fashion.
