O.K., I'm not thrilled that Wes Welker got injured, but hear me out. Let's say, for discussion's sake that Edelman does an adequate job replacing Welker. Well, for those of you who remember, the Pats were at or near the tops in the league, for man hours lost to injuries in the years they won their Super Bowls. If you think about this year, however, things shape up much better, IMHO. The offensive line is deep and healthy right now. Matt Light, Volmer, Kaczur, and Neal had their injuries early on, missed a little bit of time (essentially resting), and are now back healthy. Same thing with the D Line. Wolfolk and Warren will be back healthy, and while they were out, the backups got some very invaluable playing time. The unit should be fully intact for the playoff run. Linebacking corp is fully healthy, Mayo's injury having come early in the season. For DBs, Springs is back. Bodden was a healthy scratch last week, and will be fresh. Sanders is over his injury, so the entire defensive backfield is finally healthy. Look at the RBs. Faulk and Maroney were healthy scratches last week, as they recharged their batteries. Now Taylor and Morris are back, and the entire backfield is finally healthy, again just in time for the playoffs. TEs: Fully healthy. There is a better than average chance that Baker, Aiken, Edelman, and Watson etc. pick their game up a notch, as a result of the Welker injury. Moss wants a ring really bad. What a great time of year to be this healthy. I would not be remotely surprised to see this team playing their best football from here through the Super Bowl. Call it glass full. Call it wishful thinking. Call it homerism. But, you have to admit, they seem to have a relatively full assortment of players, save for Welker. Has anybody else noticed this?
