Im the other way, and Stallworth doesn't scare me cause he didnt produce when he was there before.

The real question is what do we do with our DB's if JJoe is healthy so you put him on Welker in the slot of keep him outside on Lloyd.

We give up quite a lot underneath too.

But the bigger impact is special teams. He is a great return man and we suck on coverage. So I'd take the small hit (if any) on offense to keep him of returns.

We have been better as of late, and Donnie Jones has been clutch in the punting game.

Here's JJ on Mike and Mike this morning

http://espn.go.com/espnradio/play?id=8708207


I think he's gonna have a monster game, but the x factor is def Connor. If he decides to show up and actually get pressure will win.

I'm already mentally preparing myself for the texans to win by 28.

Hopefully brady goes berserk because that's our only chance in my eyes.

As for Edelman vs stallworth, it's Edelman and its my even close. Edelman is one of the best st players in the league and is a far better receiver than stallworth. He's lost a step while Edelman has only gotten better. Edelman is a better route runner, has better hands, and is more elusive in the open field. He's also arguably the best punt returner in patriots history (though admittedly not exactly an incredibly difficult feat)

Contrary to popular belief, I'm not that big a homer. I just happen to root for a team with the second best qb ever and the soon to be GOAT tight end. Texans defense is nicked up but the patriots ol is just as much and I fully expect watt tO get to Brady at least twice in spite of assuredly bb triple teaming him every down. And Reed and co will get their shots. If gronk were healthy I think our offense would be okay but with him and now Edelman out and Hernandez still not at 100%, our only hope is Brady to go berserk for 40 because our defense is going to let up a ton of points. Play action to wide open guys in the enndzone is what I'm expecting.

People say our defense has gotten better. I say we've played some dreadful offenses.

Probably a mixture of those two.

But yea, I'm not expecting too much from the Pats.

Have a hard time seeing the Pats wining this game. Online is too beat up protect Brady from Watt and company. Our D is probably getting shredded with Andre. Ugh, the more I think about it the worse I feel about the Pats chances.

I don't know why, but I am nearly as confident about this game as I was about the Texans - Ravens game. I don't mean to jinx anything by putting this out there, and the Pats are certainly a better team than the Ravens... I just feel like Houston matches up well against these Patriots.

This is the game that's going to cost us when we get up big and take our foot off the gas.

at Half texans up 28-10
Patriots win 38-35

I'd agree we match up well if our secondary is healthy. But with the state of health there I am very nervous and would say the Pats are the favorites.
