This is starting to remind me of last season.
we lose Hobbs + Wilson against CJ, Housh and Henry? TREMENDOUS
Sanders and Scott..cant wait
So it starts again? It always the secondary. Why can't we get some ironmen in there?????? AHHHHHHHH. We better draft a starting level corner with one of our picks. Heck right now I'd take Hall and Meriweather with our first two picks. This happens every year, I'm sick of it.
might see troy brown back in the secondary...poor number 80.
this is very similar to the game in st louis in 2004 and we found a way to win, thats the +ve in the comparison.
Does that mean Kazcur will finally play?
There certainly could not be a worse time to lose two starters in your secondary.
Not to mention the O line if Light cannot play... I feel better about this now, looks like the Pats magic recipe for a improbable win... time to put some whisky into the kool-aid.
I bet Hawkins will start at safety.
at least chad jackson isn't out, i'm assuming they are going to dress him?
that will be an inteesting combo safety. i don't think we've seen it before?
callaghan's loss hurts more honestly because it could effect our running game too to some extent..hobbs was kinda expected and wilson also looked iffy..
plus they have Carson Palmer AND Rudi Johnson...
It's going to be a longggg day tommorow.
plus our D has looked bad enough as it is
Look at the bright side, 'It's Ron Borges' has something more to celebrate - he gets so little.
Vrabel and Alexander and Davis will all rotate through SS - Chad Johnson will be wishing Geno gives him a Brian Russell if one of them get lined up.
who knows, with all the injuries in the secondary, the off will be less conservative and try and take more chances to score pts..i think best case this can be the st louis game in 2004 or worst case the colts game in foxboro in 2005
O man, I was excited about this game before, but now I'm REALLY EXCITED!
LETS GO SECONDARY! WOOOO!
Yes, a very long day indeed....for Rudi Johnson.
I expect the veteran front seven to do their part, come through and take RJ out of the game to force second or third and longs against our big nickle or dime sets. The DBs will give up plays, but I think our offense led by Dillon will pull out a close, hard-fought win.
Don't expect to give up big plays on the road and win. We gave up just two at home and we weren't even close at the end. The offense has to be clicking when we respond to their long scoring drives, and judging by the first three games it isn't.
I seem to recall just a weed ago, Wilson was the weak link of the secondary, yet now his loss is impossible to overcome?
Hobbs has me worried a little, and I like what I have seen of O'Callaghan so far.
No matter, NE will win this game.
Hopefully Kaczur is ready to go. Probably going to be a little rusty. Did he play at all in the preseason? I don't think he did.
No he didn't play in pre-season, I actually expect Britt to start, Nick is still questionable on the injury report, I can't see putting him back in too early for the 4th game of the season.
patchick: Was it you talking about O'Callaghan's history of concussions?
I don't know. If I recall, the last time the Pats played in Cincy, the team was decimated by injuries also. Law was out which forced Geno and Gay to play CB with Dexter Reid playing Geno's spot at safty. I think Troy played the slot CB and even picked off a pass. Regardless, that DB-field gave up huge plays in that game and pulled out a win. Granted, we had a more solid receiving corp, though Givens might have been out (not sure), but each meeting opens a new set of conditions and problems. Frankly, even with the lackluster showing from the offensive side of the ball, I'm not ready to pack in this game with pessimism. This team still has too much heart.
Two weeks ago to be precise. Last week, Wilson rebounded and had a very solid game before getting injured.
Now you're talking!
One week ago today, Wilson had not played Denver yet.
