How did you feel about the Ray Rice 83 yard game?

Can't come fast enough. We'll either be licking the wounds that have unfolded over the last 3 months, or it will be on to Denver.
Way less confident than this week for obvious reasons. That team wasn't very good and lost Wes Welker the week before.

I agree. I am in a good spot. House money and we could still win the SB.

ALL PATRIOTS ABOARD THE KARMA TRAIN:

Patriots expect this to be their healthiest game-day roster in weeks. All hands on deck. Excited about Gronk and Edelman's status

I've said it once already this week, but I'll say it again. I don't predict outcomes or ever feel "confident" when playing any team that's remotely decent. Just like movies. My wife knows who the murderer is 20 minutes in. I don't even try to guess. Just along for the ride.

With that said... I feel differently this week. I don't buy the KC hype based off their shitty schedule. Their offense will have a really hard time putting up 20 points against a finally healthy Pats D. Conversely, even with a rusty Edelman and gimpy Gronk, I have a hard time seeing this offense not putting up 27+ points.

Thanks. I missed that. Well for what it's worth they have 8 days until the next game. That extra day to recuperate can't hurt.

Back for Collins, knee for Jones and shoulder for Mayo. I thought Jones had popped a hammy at first as he was running in a straight line chasing Smith.

edit: beaten by Red October.

“@RyanHannable: FWII: Julian Edelman left the locker room headed in the direction of the X-Ray room.”

I mean could he be headed in the direction of the X-ray room or any other number of places? If he got hurt on the deflected pass that may go down as the luckiest unlucky play in NFL history.

Yeah, this game showed just how different a team they are with Edelman on the field. Without him, it's hard to see this team as a Super Bowl contender.

This is for Jed. According to Reiss:

When asked to clarify if he had an X-Ray, Julian Edelman says players can't talk about injuries. Reporters had spotted him at X-Ray room.

They said it in the most off-hand way...pure guess, not an expert opinion.

Good news he seems to be fine per later reports, and see no reason why he wouldn't be. Had all of his usual quickness (though what's with the concrete hands this season?)

Wait, what? SOP? Did they say that? Or did they say that an X-ray is routine in players recovering from fractures, like Edelman? The SOP thing sounds strange to me.
Eric Davis said it. If you had problems with a foot, as Edelman obviously has, it would be normal to X-ray it after a game to see how it held up.

Sorry, SOP for Edelman. The implicaion was that it would be routine to check the foot after the game. in other words, "Hey Jules, come down to X-Ray so we can make sure everything's all right." vs "Damn, my foot hurts, I better go get it X-rayed."

Do you think his sources are the bathroom wall? Could the bathroom wall be any more incorrect? Theo's like Dan Fouts or Mike Carey. If he says it, assume the reverse.
"Any impression that Paul Weiss catered to the NFL's whims would be bad for Paul Weiss' business in this area and presumably not something the firm's leadership would condone." - TheoShmeo, 1/28/15

"But Wells and his firm are of the highest repute and are being paid to deliver a thorough and complete report." - TheoShmeo, 2/18/15

Maybe

The Writing on the Wall
King Belshazzar had taken from the temple in Jerusalem, so that the king and his nobles, his wives and his concubines might drink from them. So they brought in the gold goblets that had been taken from the temple of God in Jerusalem, and the king and his nobles, his wives and his concubines drank from them. As they drank the wine, they praised the gods of gold and silver, of bronze, iron, wood and stone.
Suddenly the fingers of a human hand appeared and wrote on the plaster of the wall, near the lampstand in the royal palace. The king watched the hand as it wrote. His face turned pale and he was so frightened that his legs became weak and his knees were knocking.

So everyone on this list played except for Jackson and Waddle?

(cue the "BB injury list shenanigans" folks...)
Haven't tracked all the specifics this week, but there are league rules stipulating which categories a player must be listed under that depend on which and how many practices the player participated in. I believe Brady was listed (for years) with the shoulder not because of shenanigans but the fact that he routinely skipped one of the weekly practices to save wear and tear.
