    Man, JUST ONCE, I'd love to see what this team could do at full strength. That may not have happened in the last 10 years though, maybe the 2003 season might have been our best injury free season except for Rosie Colvin. 2004 season, Pats won the SB with 2 backup CB's (Law and Poole hurt), don't think that's ever happened before or since.

    I thought they were pretty healthy last year at the start of the playoffs (of course Gronk got hurt). Am I wrong?

    Also, another reason having at least the #2 seed is important; get those players some more rest.

    No Jersey Selected

    If things go right, this team should be getting fully healthy by the time the playoffs come around. Yet another reason why a first round bye would be a big deal.

    So, yes, relatively healthy. Forgot Carter was IRed then. The other two they hadn't depended on for most of the year, so I don't count them as much.

    Ya Bodden and Dowling were pretty much non existent that whole season. Bodden played in 5 games got cut and Dowling played in 2 and was IRed

    Yes, he did. 10/28/11. I just remember thinking at the start of the playoffs how healthy that team seemed to be compared to years past.

    gronks injury happened at the best possible time.

    a 4-6 week arm injury after we have pretty much sealed up a playoff berth.

    Give the kid plenty of time to get his leg/hip in order he should come back for the playoffs 100% for the first time since the injury vs the ravens.

    I'm failing to remember what players exactly, but I thought the 2003 team was at the time the Super Bowl Champion with the most games missed due to injury from their starters. This was only to be exceeded by the 2004 Pats. Maybe I'm mistaken though.


    I would agree, however, that we were pretty healthy heading into the playoffs last year. Sure, we lost Carter, but you can't expect everyone to be healthy. While he provided solid pressure he was not considered by most to be a top 10 player on the team.

    Carter was a hit.

    Bodden was already gone.

    Dowling has yet to prove anything on this team so hard to count that one, for me.

    It's like saying we're at a disadvantage because Demps is on IR.

    Good news about Edleperson; I was going to be bummed if he got derailed by injury again.

    This year has been escpecially tough though.

    I mean all offseason all we did was talk about our two headed tight end duo of Rob Gronkowkis and Aaron Hernandez.

    Guess what, the two have only been on the field together for 3 games (TEN, NYJ, SEA, no I don't include ARI). Of those, only the first one (TEN) was played with them both being fully healthy.

    That should frighten DCs around the league.

    The Pats are on a historic scoring pace. . . . WITHOUT a full GRONKnandez.

    That's almost a starting lineup of offensive linemen missing practice. At this pace, we'll have Fells playing LT before Christmas.

    I think all it goes to show is that you can only have so many passes and each is so great that having another results in no additional offensive output.

    Koppen, SeaBass was a mess and, of course Mankins was playing on one leg.

    I don't like one bit this part of the report:

    On the other hand, we need these guys for the Texans and Niners, or else Brady will be leveled by the pass rush of these teams. :(

    Yeah, I was just going off the top of my head. Dowling was a game 1 starter and looked good until he was on IR, and Bodden's release was injury related, losing 2 of your best corner backs along with countless Safeties definably hurt, we went through what, 10 safeties last year?
