Re: Dobson to Play?

We sure have been hit with hammy and groins - I really don't understand it with the young guys. they should always be stretched out.
I think the we will see more run anyway - they just resigned Mulligan, Ridley will get another chance and he can run. Bolden (can he do like a Vereen?) and Blount will all play. I wonder if we see more Cannon.
Active healthy wrs' Endleman, Boyce , KT, Slater. Unhealthy Amendola,Dobson. With 3 rookies there was always going to be a game with muliple rookies in the game at the same time. If not now against the jests , then when?
Boyce can play slot which is the easiest route running receiver position.
If Dobson runs a few medium routes i will be fine
The jests will try to play man and disguise coverage on TB. If you think about it - TB has always picked on the other teams safeties. TB is best against zone.
There Dline is the best part of their D.
They have 2 ok lbs - one being nicked up. and 2 going over the hill.
The jests safeties are average. After this game we can have a good conversation on who has better safeties. lol
1 cb is pretty good and the other rookie has not shown much.- and no depth in Wilson - he is not Arrington in any stretch of the imagination.-
In NYT land here ( and greenie on M&M) there is still no respect for the Pats D. Greenie seems to think the jests skill position players on O are better than what the Pats will put out tomorrow - even said if TB puts up 40 he will say TB is the greatest - but then he took it back by saying if the jests didn't turn it over - what a tool !
Of course the jests do not have Spiller, freddi jackson, a Johnson or even the USC kid on the team. I bet BB stuffs the run and dares Smith to beat him with his arm with almsot no one to throw to. Right now we would be happy if we had Winslow - and btw he only has the best things to say about the Pats.
The feeling here is that the jests have a good chance to upset the Pats. there is some history in Game 2's against the jests with the jests winning. There is no swagger left in Rex
I don't go by Vegas point spreads anymore concerning the Pats - its all about getting bettors. With the Pats name and the no vote confidence in Rex and the Sanchise and rookie qb- it just doesn't matter the point spread.
At the same time - Does the Offense turn the ball over - If they don't I don't see the Pats losing. if the pats get it going - the jests may break down.
Pat's Fan lost in Jet Land
