    • No Hernandez? Last time I checked he was second for AFC TEs.

          Fan voting is only 1/3 or else Tim Tebow would be a QB on the roster.

          • Anyone else really looking forward to this game against Buffalo. The problem the last few weeks has been with starting fast but you know Brady will still have his last performance against Buffalo(worst of the year) fresh in his mind and will look to make sure it doesn't happen again.

            Teams have been really focusing in on Gronk recently and it's left Welker and Hernandez particularly more open than normal but I'd love to see Brady get the ball to Gronk more now going into the playoffs, especially in the redzone. We're going to be playing better defenses than Miami and Buffalo in the playoffs and I want the redzone offense to be firing on all cylinders going in

              That's because MCL sprains come in 3 grades: 1, 2, and 3. If it were 3 - Mankins (and every other NFL player) would be on IR right now. If it were grade 2, he'd probably be IR'd as well because the best case scenario for return would probably be the Super Bowl week.

              A reasonable grade 1 sprain can take a week to fully heal as long as you stay off of it and treat it properly. NE doesn't need to win this game to be in good position. Just a bye is helpful. The home field advantage stuff is just icing on the cake, worst case scenario.
              Well, if Pittsburgh is the #1 seed, that might be an advantage for the Pats with how they've performed, historically, in Pittsburgh in the playoffs.

              • It's crazy to me that this team is fighting for (and likely to clinch) the number 1 seed in the AFC. With a D that gives up yards hand over fist to scrubs like Orvlovsky and VY, and Brady looking like he is sleeping through sections of games at a time, the Patriots are looking like they'll have homefield throughout.

                Now we just have to hope they can show up for the playoff games this year.

                  I say this very carefully and with lots of trepidation, the Patriots are one of only about 3 or 4 teams who can win a game in one quarter. If the offense hits its stride and the defense makes one or two stops the Pats can realistically have a 21 point swing in one quarter. Look at the Miami game. At 17-0 at the half most teams are dead and buried. Then 27 unanswered points.

                  They can't afford to play like this in the playoffs though. They need fast starts on offense to make teams chase the game and they need to close teams out. If we are up 10 in the third quarter we need to score another TD to put the game to rest because I don't trust this defense in any quarter let alone the 4th.

                  • I'm just hoping we don't have to host the Ravens again. They have everything necessary to trounce us once again. I'm over the "let's get our revenge" thing . . . let's not face them, instead.

                        That, my friend, is a path I'd like to travel.

                        • I don't care who they play as long as they win. I hate the idea of rooting for "favorable" match-ups.

                          • Don't be a party pooper! Of course we don't mind the match-up as long the outcome is in our favor.

                            • This season is totally weird. This team could be 13-3 and when you look at the 3 losses, you could attribute at least 1 and maybe 2 of them to the offense, yet the defense is the suspect side of the ball.

                              (@Buffalo was definitely a day Brady would like to have back and the Pittsburgh game was one where the offense was never in sync. You could even argue that the NYG game was won [or at least could have been] except a dumb penalty by Sergio Brown)

                              • Alright, let's thank Miami for being so painfully mediocre, but good at the right times.


                                The real season starts in two weeks. It's put up or shut up(better yet, hire a defensive coordinator) this year for me.
