I will be there momentarily to root the Pats home.

This will not detract one iota from my man love for Ray Lewis. About 5 or so years ago, when Ray was in the prime of his career, the defense was always introduced at home games, and he was introduced last. And before he came running through the smoke, this appeared on the huge scoreboards behind each end zone. It could not be more fitting:

ESPN reporting that Winslow will be active tonight.

It would be awesome for a Boston free agent signing of a name to not end in tears. If Winslow actually could perform for this team, that would be awesome.

Just getting a six week run of good football from Winslow would be a nice boost as Hernandez hopefully recovers

McDonald inactive is a good sign that they're not worried about Connolly or Mankins ... I think.

But what does it say that they dressed four TE: Gronk, Fells, Winslow, Hoomanawanui?

Could mean a lot of 2 WR sets with Lloyd and Edelman.

Or that Fells and H-man are there in case Winslow is ineffective and for the occasional three-TE set.

Take these MFers, Patriots. Just do that.

Reiss:

Forston breaks through with Deaderick out. With reserve defensive tackle Brandon Deaderick (ankle) not dressing, rookie Marcus Forston is active for the first time this season. Deaderick mostly played in short-yardage situations (29 of 129 snaps), while sometimes giving starters Vince Wilfork and Kyle Love a breather.


Fortson over Deaderick is bad news for Deaderick with Myron Pryor due back after week 6-8 and Gerard Warren waiting by the phone.

Vereen not beating out Bolden is a bad sign for those of us (is it still an us or is it just me?) still hoping to see Vereen emerge.

They both practiced this week. Everyone's hurt. They're not injured. Hernandez is injured - he didn't practice.

EDIT: I'm wrong. Deaderick was injured during practice this week. My bad.

For the record, the Pats' latest injury report was:

Out this week:
Out - Dennard, Deaderick, Francis, Hernandez
Questionable - Vereen, McDonald
Healthy scratch - Bequette

The following players were on the injury report but playing:
Questionable - Connolly, Vollmer, Fells, Lloyd, Moore, Mankins
Probably - Chung

Every time I watch Ray Lewis with that pregame speech I think

1) this is 100% for TV and 0% for his teammates
2) no teammate EVER looks to be even listening to him, much less inspired by him

Love the player, but those things just look silly at this point

Sure, but since Dennard, Francis, Deaderick, and Hernandez were all "Out," it stands to reason they're out due to injury. If BB wanted to mess with people he'd make them "Questionable." There's little BB loves more than listing players as Questionable.

Dungy says the keys for the Ravens are to take advantage of mistakes.

Is that only for the Ravens? Is it key for NE (or any other fucking team) to also take advantage of their opponent's mistakes?

And wow--Dungy picks NE???

Did you miss the part where I apologized for not seeing Deaderick's injury on Friday? Cause I did.

Vereen's status, and "limited participation" is as limited as guys who will be playing. Whatever. I want Vereen to be a factor and he's not, due to lingering injury and Bolden being better right now.

No, I missed the part where you were specifically talking about Vereen.

Yeah, Vereen has been disappointing so far. I hope he can make a contribution at some point this year. I'm also hoping Woodhead can figure out whatever happened to his afterburners last year; he was so much more explosive his first year with the team. I don't think Vereen / Bolden is really a competition; Bolden's a four-unit special teamer and the most fullbacky guy on the roster since they cut Hilliard.
