Someone must have kicked over an injury bug hive and now the entire team is getting bitten.

And just a month ago it seemed like the team was having a (rare) nice string of health. Through 2 weeks of the pre-season they seemed healthier than just about any other team.

I blame Tim Tebow.

Yea, I thought it was a little too good to be true when the season started. While it seemed like all the other teams around us were getting injured left and right throughout the pre-season, we went through without a hitch.

This sucks. Pats honestly just need to focus on getting healthy and playing smart football. I'd say having the receivers progress, staying healthy, and winning division games until we get everyone back are the most important things right now. I honestly couldn't care less what record we end up with at the end of the season, as long as we're 1st in the AFCE.

We may be getting Gronk back soon, but if as of now our #1 WR also isn't known for being the most durable guy either.

One more injury to this receiving core and the Pats will have to pick someone else up IMO.

You said it, they just need to play smart football. Unfortunately Josh McDaniels is our offensive coordinator.

As the someone who doesn't have to handle the ball, why is he gonna miss time?

Since when do they just not slap a cast on a broken wrist and send guys out there? Heck that is how we did it in my high school.

well he is expected to be an up man, in which he will need his hands free.

I do miss seeing guys like Bruschi out there with a big club, but who knows that might not be allowed anymore in the new player safety oriented CBA
