In response to jbolted's comment:
The Broncos are the worst team left. The Patriots played the worst team left last week though, so you all should use caution in bold assessments. They did make Indy look like the team they are- young and on the rise, but not good enough. That being said, shut down the run and win. Ol' Horseface will find a way to lose if you put the pressure on him to be 'the guy'. I did not agree with Whisenhunt's conservative play calling and I hope the Pats don't do the same. Chargers were 2-0 against Peyton before getting him into a dual, then, this time they didn't air it out (or at least chose to too late). Anybody that knows football, knows Brady is better than Peyton. Shut down denver run and win, its that simple.
My pick Pats 29- Denver 23
Excellent pick. I agree the run game is the real key and I am starting to think BB puts Talib on Julius Thomas, RYan on Demarius Thomas, and Collins as a spy on Moreno on the screens to him and to load up on run support with Hightower behind the Pats front line.
This will hopefully isolate the middle of the field, take away the run and force Gomie to push his passes to the perimeters.
Im with you here rusty, I talked about J Thomas being the key to the game and if we should even put Talib on him ala Jimmy Graham, I'd rather see Manning try and beat us deep or outside the numbers then chewing us up in the middle. I would put Dennard on DT though and Logan on Decker. I think Dennard will be our #1CB next year, a steal of a draft pick for BB. Arrington CAN cover Welker! It moght be the only guy he can cover, but I like that match up! He will bang on Wes and his xxx helmet.
