I posted this over on reddit a couple of days ago.
From the CBA:
In other words, they're expanding the gameday rosters by two players, but in order to take advantage of that, teams must dress a minimum of eight OLs. [If they dress <8 OLs, they can only have 47 active players.] In the past...
Sorry mods, but I thought this deserved a new thread since the other thread was for wishing Andrews the best on his recovery. Please merge if you think necessary. By all accounts it sounds as if Andrews is done for the season, possibly career. Thoughts on replacing him?
Should we be concerned about David Andrews?

David Andrews... Mike. That’s the elephant in the room
Hi DD. David Andrews hasn't been at practice the last two days. Dante Scarnecchia said "we'll find out" when...
I expect this defense to be the best in the league, and I expect this team to be as dominant as they've been since 2007(no team will ever again be that dominant).
Traditionaly one would think about "protecting the QB" run more, less tight ends routes etc etc. I'm not sure this really applies to...
Are we asleep on Joe Thuney?
I think the prevailing thinking is the Pats will not be able to sign him, but as camp unfolds he seems like the most consistent offensive lineman. Bedard singled him today as the #1 up so far.
Someone mentioned on another thread that no rookie ever comes in and...
I suggest that we only "need" 8, with additional backups on the Practice Squad. I'm fine with 9, especially if we go with only 2 QB's and can "afford" the roster spot.
starter - Andrews
backup - Froholdt (he has started lots of games at center)
backup - Veldheer (he has occasionally...
LAC @ NE Divisional . re-watch . thread
This re-watch should be pure joy. One of the most amazing & complete performances by any team I can remember. Coming from “struggling team“ vs “most balanced“ team makes it all the more intriguing. Above all - the strengths of this performance should...

There were plenty of eyebrows raised when Pats didn't bring back Lewis and used #31 pick for a RB.
While Patriots statistically had a decent running game in SBLII they struggled quite a bit in last yrs postseason. They nearly lost the home AFCCG after they couldn't get anything going on the...
Running Game Vaults Patriots To 10th Straight Division Crown
Sony Michel led the way with 116 yards on 18 carries as the Pats rolled up 273 yards on the ground.

Well that one was interesting. Maybe not as interesting as a lot of other games this week, but in a parochial sense there is a lot to talk about annual Buffalo beat down in Foxboro. Same old beat down, but with a lot of different moving parts.
1. General Offensive Observations - Kind of...
