[QUOTE]In Response to Re: HAYNESWORTH traded to NEW ENGLAND... : Yup. And now you can limit everyone's snaps to keep them all healthy You have your heavies against the run: Wilfork, Ty Warren, Haynesworth, and Stroud (and hopefully Gerard Warren) and maybe Ron Brace if he makes the cut with Deadrick as a potential project You have your pass rush crew: Haynesworth, Mike Wright, Myron Pryor, possibly Ty Warren depending on how he's come back, possibly one of the kids (Love) I'm really excited now. I can't wait for September to come

Brace is fine, he is rehabbing. Stroud has been cut. Wilfork can certainly rush the passer. I think a monster 4 man look would be removing Warren for Wright and taking Nink off the field. Then Cunnningham can put his knuckles down where he is a bit more explosive.
Or they can run it like they did against Pittsburgh, and put Wright inside, and bust Wilfork outside and have almost 700 pounds on both ends. That would create a big mismatch of power vs speed againt teams that run bloated guards and nimble tackles. I loved that BB moved Fork around last season, and he generated some really good pressure against the RTs he was up against, and Wright's game against Pitt was one of the mot dominant performances of the season by any defender.
In the end, depth counts. The guys that got NE to 14-2 last season and came on strong down the stretch are now backups, except for Wilfork and Wright (who has always been a super-sub).
Getting Warren back and acquiring Haynesworth via trade not only adds raw talent that simply wasn't on the line last season, but adds tremendous depth as well.
