    Edelman, Ridley, Branch will have big games today.

    Gronk continues to roll toward a TE TD record in homecoming game.

    I'm really a bit worried about the defense, but at the same time with no Al, we might see some faster attacking play. Hitting the QB and stopping Jackson are the ONLY ways to win this one.

    We'll see if this ground and pound attack theory really works.

    Thinking this game hinges entirely on whether McCourty can step up or not.

    Wow! The defense is depleted with Haynesworth, Chung, and Dowling out and Pryor and Wright on IR. Looks like San Diego is a Piric victory. Luckily, Dowling and Chung are short term injuries. Hopefully Haynesworth is too.

    BTW, anyone who bet the under for this game might have as well spent the money on Powerball tickets. That is the safer bet than the under in this game.

    to be honest i am a little excited about a possible combo of Welker,Edelman,Woodhead, Branch and Gronk set out there that's gotta be kind of scary to defend aganst if you the bills

    This means we have all three QBs and four RBs active. Time to unleash the monsters. I predict a never before seen formation featuring two QBs and four RBs. I nominate that we call this the hydra personnel.

    I am still predicting that the Patriots show up big time for this game and put up some good numbers, although Buffalo will score too. I think that our Defense, with it's back to the wall, will find the motivation and heart to get things done. The way that Fitzpatrick likes to play gunslinger, there's a very real chance that New England's "D" gets a pick-6.

    Can New England lose this game? Sure. Any given Sunday and all that. However, i think that even banged up, the Bills will come up short this time.

    Regardless, it's always a fun game to watch, and I'm signing off here so as to get a couple things done before settling in for the day. :rocker:

    GO PATS!!

    The fact that Mallett is active is a horrible thing in my eyes. The fact that they can have guys like Mallett, all four RBs, and all six WRs active means the Pats are woefully thin at other positions most notably TE (1) and d-line.

    EDIT: Didn't realize Price was inactive. Scratch the six WRs.
