    No,Its not THAT I.R.S...Its the Injured Reserve Squad players from 2009 who missed most of last season

    WES WELKER NOT INCLUDED - INJURED IN JANUARY

    Which one of these players coming back fron early injury that knocked them out of the 2009 season early will come back with the biggest impact in 2010?

    I voted for Brandon Tate. He will be dangerous on kickoff returns and catch some long bombs from Brady.

    Either Tate or T-Mac. Although if Crable can make it through the preseason without getting injured I'll be excited to see what he can do.

    T-Mac. I question how much time Tate will get with the receivers and tight ends we now have onboard.

    I think Tate simply because he is going to get the biggest opportunit of all to show what he can do. I'm hoping McKenzie can act as an excellent backup to Mayo and Spikes.

    Tate will given opportunities at reciever (#4) and at retruner. He also actually was seen as good enough to play in a game last year. He really has no real competition for these positions other than himself. If he can produce, he will get playing time.

    I voted Tate. McKenzie has a lot of competition, and Crable hasn't played in so long he's probably forgotten what a football looks like.

    I hope it's Tate, but I am suspect about his ability to stay healthy. I've given up on Crable's ability to stay healthy.

    I say I hope it's Tate, because if he's a stud this offense will be potent. Yet, if McKenzie's not a stud, Spikes will be. I love the make up and the tackling machine background of McKenzie.

    If they both (Tate and McKenzie) are studs this year, we will be in Dallas in February.

    Tate has the best chance of making an impact, either on special teams or on offense, due to how thin the receivers are. Mckenzie will probably back up at ILB behind Spikes.

    Gotta go with McKenzie, no other reason is that his life story is quite compelling.. anything other reason would be a crapshoot..

    The IRS employee that looks the other way so we can pay Brady the big bucks, will make the biggest impact.

    (Probably Tate)

    For the few times that Tate was out there last year,he looked as if he was capable of seperating himself from defenders, but seemed a bit unable to grasp the routes,I would think this offseason will help him.

    Had to go with Tate, but we would all love to see Crable get on the field and show us some ability. :cool:

    LeVoir was on the PUP. He was on the 53-man roster for the last ~10 games of the season.

    I'm expecting minimum impact from those guys. If Tate catches more than 20 passes this season I'll be stunned.

    ...Who will be catching the passes? Darnell Jenkins? Buddy Farnham? Matt Slater? Bryan Anderson? ...Keron Henry? Rich Musinski? John Stone?

    The fact that Brady mentioned Tate by name is actually hugely telling - and that he was the first wideout he named. Brady is pretty honest with the media when it comes to evaluating his receivers. Whenever asked about Chad Jackson, Brady would give some vague answer about how everyone needed to be on the practice field more to click. Likewise, I don't think you ever heard Brady talk about Bethel in a positive light - and he was equally as vague when talking about Galloway's struggles with the offense.

    My question is, How bad was Tate's injury (the second one, the one that put him on IR) ? I think we may all be counting on him too much. I'm thinking it's possible the Pats didn't really key on OLB in the draft because they feel Crable may be ready. I'm banking on Crable finally making an impact.

    I'm nervous about Tate & McKenzie not being recovered enough from their injuries to be effective or that they might not be durable enough to make it through a full NFL season. Crable has shown nothing, so I'm not putting any faith in him.

    I hope I'm completely wrong and that there are 2-3 starters in the group that was on IR last year.

    Shawn Crable has tremendous potential - he was a monster in the Big Ten his last two years at Michigan and led the nation in tackles for a loss the year before he was drafted by the Pats. He's had a year to study the Pats defense and get well. He's a big, mobile LB who should see Adalius' departure as a huge opportunity. With Zoltan and Brady, that makes 3 Wolverines in hand.

    Injuries in football derail good players early in their careers - this is a good question to pose. If Tate, Crable and MacKenzie play up to their potential it's like adding three players to an already solid and very deep draft.

    I like the youth and speed of the Pats this year blending with a load of veterans on both sides of the ball. The other feature is the leadership from college so many of these kids bring with them from BCS schools where they played before big crowds with big expectations.

    RB is still a major concern without a clear #1 back like Adrian Petersen or Corey Dillon to keep defenses honest. But the rest of the positions have quality and depth, particularly if Crable and Tate work out.

    Crable is a 3 year rookie veteran

    Never thought you could say that and not be a joke
