Key Match-Ups
Steve Balestrieri takes a look at this weekend's match-ups and believes the Patriots receivers should have their way against Pittsburgh's secondary.

Current Patriots Twitter Feed:

In descending order 1.) restructure 2.) paycut 3.) trade 4.) retirement

To that point, in Week 7 matchup Patriots had most success on defense when they had 7-8 in box. Key player: Patrick Chung.

Another current #Colts player here 👇🏽 The postmortem stories on Grigson are going to be good reading

Rewatched some of KC-Pitt from last Sunday: Ben Roethlisberger made some bad throws. Pats' best bet is to crowd box, focus on stopping Bell

Packers have signed WR Max McCaffrey to active roster from the practice squad and placed C/G JC Tretter on injured reserve.

Kelce hit Steelers early last weekend. Pitt in cover 3. Shazier either gets caught eyeballing Smith or a brain free…

@RocheSmoke Yes, sir. Believe that as well Jordan ... er...Ryan. LOL.

@jricci_rich77 While sound in theory, no-name special teamers critical (think Philly game last year with blocked punt etc.). Won't happen.

Confident that veteran deals will include 46-man active roster bonuses.

@HendersonChef Not sure I'd put it in no-brainer category, but agree that's the likely scenario.

@stephenkurucz Feel the same way, Stephen. Curious if Bill Belichick sees it the same way.

RT @ProFootballTalk: Bill Belichick is going for postseason win No. 25 tomorrow. No other coach in NFL history has more than 20 https://t.c…

@NYPatsFan21 Concur with that Lady Brady. Curious if Bill Belichick sees it the same way.

@_karlrademacher Hi Karl. Hard for me to agree after watching Floyd in regular-season finale. But agree he's choice if everyone's healthy.

What am I most sure about Patriots offseason? That Amendola's 2017 7.8M cap number will be reduced via cut, trade, restructure, retirement

@NewEnglandSBLI High-class problem, of course, when this is a top dilemma.

RT @PeteAbe: Two center fielders with a lot of range in this photo.

@Jaylan_D1 That would be my choice if everyone else is healthy.

@AntonChigurh81 I agree with that Anton. Said it in piece: If Mitchell is healthy, he deserves to be active.

@estJanuary23 @soledadobrien ever have dream when u scream and no one hears u or throwing punches but missing? that's what this feels like

@EliGordonn Amendola's special teams role is solely as a returner. They need more guys for the other special teams roles.

@EliGordonn Hi Eli, it looks like needs in other areas of the roster (special teams etc.) make it unlikely to have all 5 active. (1/2)

@conman107 Hi Burger. That topic is dissected in this link:

RT @Dan_Hatman: Yes, better division to compete in and Andrew Luck

@jfun06112 If Bolden is inactive, they would need to fill that spot with special teamer (Richards, perhaps).

RT @bylindsayhjones: Here's to strong women. May we know them. May we be them. May we raise them.

@RocheSmoke Hi Jordan, the clear choice is whom?

@jreil26 Thanks for sharing the thoughts Jeremy. This is the type of high-end football discussion I particularly appreciate.

@1972GoBlue Me too, sir. What I particularly appreciate is the level of interest/intelligence of followers to discuss this topic.

Panthers Might Go WR

    First-round receiver for Panthers? Sources say yes
    Scan the mock drafts out there and most of them have the Panthers using the 14th overall draft pick on a safety, middle linebacker or tight end.

    There is another theory making the rounds, and when you consider the sources, you have to give it credibility.

    This is the time of year when NFL teams try to figure out what everyone else will be looking for in the draft. People around the league talk to friends with other teams, and it’s also pretty easy to observe which players teams are focusing on at the all-star games and workouts.

    The word from several teams with draft picks near the Panthers is that those teams are expecting Carolina to use its first pick on a receiver.

    Maybe it’s a smokescreen being sent out by the Panthers, who seem to have much more pressing needs at safety, linebacker, tight end and maybe even defensive end.

    Or maybe it’s true.

    Maybe Ohio State’s Ted Ginn is sitting there at No.. 14 and the Panthers can’t help but take a speedy receiver with the potential to be a top return man.

    As a receiver, Ginn could be brought along slowly behind starters Steve Smith and Keyshawn Johnson. Drew Carter also will figure into the mix. But, Carter can become a free agent after this season and Johnson might only play one more season. If that happens, drafting Ginn could pay off big in 2008.

    For now, we’re going to stick with the theory that the Panthers will draft a safety, a spot where they need a starter in 2007, which is the only year coach John Fox and general manager Marty Hurney can afford to worry about at this point. If they really want a receiver, that can come in the second or third round.

    Why is this being posted here? The Panthers are one of the teams NE has to worry about taking Willis, Landry (if he slides), or maybe even Nelson. If the Panthers take a WR it could allow someone to fall...

    Interesting. I'm not on board with the blogger's suggestion that Carolina will take "a safety" just to take "a safety." You draft an individual, not a position. Unless Landry is still on the board it's just not a good value for #14. There will be starting-caliber safeties available 32 picks later.

    If I'm Carolina my draft board probably looks a lot like Pats fans' wishlists: Landry, Meachem, Carriker, Willis. And if they like Ginn, throw him in.
