    From the Globe:

    Should the Patriots win this week and face Indianapolis in the next round, that game would be played Sunday, Jan. 15, at 1 p.m. If New England tops Jacksonville and Pittsburgh beats Cincinnati, the Patriots would travel to Denver, where they would face the Broncos Saturday, Jan. 14, at 8 p.m.

    That wouldl be another cold game in Denver, Patriots weather.

    Well, I expect they'll be playing in Denver, so much for the extra day of preparation/rest prediction. On the other hand, I look forward to another Belichick/Shanahan battle, this time with our coordinators coaching with a full season's worth of in-game adjustment experience.

    Plus, as long as the Jags don't injure Corey and Kevin, we won't be seeing Patrick Pass getting 20 carries that day either (altho' he didn't do badly at all against Denver).

    No, that was the first Bills game, I think. IMO Pass single-handedly brought the Pats back in the Denver game, when the offense, defense, and coaching staff QUIT early in the third quarter. Truly the most disgusted I've ever been watching the Patriots since that 31-0 loss to Buffalo in '03/

    With apologies to Kansas City, Denver is probably THE hardest place for a visiting team to play. The acoustics are such that it is absolutely deafening for the visiting offense to function. I feel much better going into Indy than Denver.

    Shiff happens, if the guy was consistently pulling up lame and losing the ball I'd be worried. Since he's running with Dillon-like power and Faulk-like quickness this season, I'm grateful to have him and the curve ball he brings to the running game. With a healthy Dillon, you have to really like the RB foursome the Pats have accumulated.

    Pass was an BEAST in that game - probably his best game ever.

    That being said, he was a one man show that day. We had no Dillon or Falk. No Seymour, Bruschi, Hawkins, etc.

    More to the point, we DID have Duane Starks.

    I've always like Pass but that fumble was inexcusable, I won't beat a dead horse because we all know that was debated on here for an extended period of time. I was simply wondering if that was the game, that he fumbled.

    It's scheduled to be 60 degrees in Denver on Saturday, so it won't be that cold Saturday night.

    That won't make one iota of a difference. I know. I've been there, many times.

    To get acclimated, in every sense of the word, to the higher altitude, you need to do so over a fairly lengthy period of time. One day won't make a difference.

    Of course, if you want to use the extra day to shop, ski or sight-see, that's a different matter altogether!

    True, but the point is, winters out in Denver are pretty mild. In the past I've played golf out there on New Years.

    We could get a cold game, I guess, but I wouldn't bet the mortgage on that.

    If the Patriots win this thing this year... it will be a MUCH bigger achievement than 2001.

    It's been warm and dry out here in the plains. So check the weather forecast in advance of going to Denver.

    None of it matters if we fail to beat Jax of course.

    Back to that Denver game, if you take out the big plays of Rod Smith against Duane Strarks, we win that game.

    Agreed. Of course, if you take out two of our scoring plays, then we lose by a bigger margin.

    Yeah, but I don't think Plummer is undefeated like Brady is (if you don't count the Miami game last week) below 30 degrees.
