    Is it going to be Pierre Woods? We know that Crable is out with an injury. Have we called up anyone from the practice squad?

    It's Woods. At some point they could move Mayo or Guyton. I hope not but if they do it won't be on a short week. Vince Redd is on the PS but he remains there for now.

    I think Pierre Woods will man the position tonight, HOWEVER, tonight I think they make up for AD's pass rush with some nice inside pressure from Mayo. BB has been keeping him from pass rushing, not wanting to overload him, but I think tonight is the night he takes the training wheels off.

    As far as reps at OLB, Pierre Woods will take those reps.

    As far as a roster spot on the 53, there is no open roster spot. Thomas has not been put on IR. Neither has Wheatley, Alexander, Lew Sanders or Jordan. Any of the five could be put on IR at any time.

    Vince Redd should be activated from the Practice Squad for the Miami game.

    Felger has - again - a surprisingly accurate and appropriate take on the matter:

    Once thomas went out woods came in and played every down .so now not 1 have notice the drastic drop in production during last game.

    He has been in rotation all year and i think its time for him to step up. how many low draft pick and udfa will we label as scrap even though we get proved wrong every week.

    Bunta played a year as starter and woods is better than bunta .

    woods will take over for AT, we'll need Redd as a backup, so hell be brought up at the expense of someone else (prob not AT)

    also, i think about the pressure up the middle is a good point, but hte way i see it, mayo will be playing coverage underneath ont he rb and te, b/c no other LB can do it just as good, and guyton will be used as the guy go pressures up the middle

    It is expected that the Jets will use the hurry up, so the pats cannot get into their "sub" packages.. so Woods will have to step up big time..

    Man I fell bad for Crable, this would have been his chance to show what he has. I know he wouldn't have started,but i think he would have been out there splitting time with Woods.

    Unless Mayo, Guyton or Bruschi is going outside in a 4-3 it's not an issue. We lost an OLB not an ILB. Going to a 4-3 doesn't help unless you also move an inside guy outside.

    I'm thinking a ton of Woods, but there will be surprises, possibly including Vrabel on the opposite side and grabbing a sack. I think part of the switch was due to his shoulder injury.
