I'm totally in agreement with you, and I'm a patriots fan. See one of my earlier posts.

of course this is easier said than done! i think another key to this game is faulk. everyone knows how dangerous moss and welker are, but stopping faulk on third down is critical to ending pats drives i think.

Good point but, if you remember, he was the receiver on the 4th and 2 vs the Colts. This year has been good for him so far, but in past years he had fumblitis.

The keys to the game from my point of view:

1) Be able to change the play at the line. The Patriots know it's going to be loud.
2) Not Moss or Welker but The TEs and Edelman.
3) Stopping Bush, i.e. the Saints running game.
4) The kicking game (on both sides) - both KOs and FGs.

It should be a heck of a game. I just hope the officiating crew doesn't ruin it for us.


Also - to repeat again - thanks for accepting me and my comments for the past few days.

Maybe we could work out a trade with NO for Bush. :P
I'm really glad Fred Taylor isn't playing! I don't wish ill will towards his life or limb - but he has almost built a reputation on us. We have trouble with backs that don't crumble when they get popped. We sometimes regress fundamentally in our tackling and get hurt with 3 yarders becoming 17's. Our DB's are all beat up from having to give so much run support lately and hope that Ellis being back eases that burden, especially with the overtime they will have to put in tonight with Welker, Moss and crew. We will have a much better night if we make Brady carry the lions share of the load.

My greatest fear is Moss getting easy flags at crucial times...1st and goal because the 5'11" guy just looks so bad trying to do his job. But its just one of the advantages that we will have to deal with tonight. Hopefully we make him earn his pay when he crosses the middle.

When I said "for us", I meant both teams. I hope the officiating crew calls the game with integrity and fairness for both teams.

It's a real pleasure.

Your team is great. It's only half time and although I'm going to watch the rest of the game, you guys deserve your record. Too bad the Patriots won't be able to make a game ot of it.

Best of luck in the future.

And if you don't mind, I'll be back on this MB as the year progresses.

Watch out Minnesota, The Saints are Marching In!
