I'm going to keep this one short and sweet. Our defense can play with the best of them on any given Sunday (when relatively healthy). Our pass rush matches up against the Patriots O-Line well.... okay, it matches up against any team well, but we're focused on the Pats. Despite everything I just said, Tom Brady, Wes Welker and Rob Gronkowski can match up against any D, any time, and put up massive points. We can't just sit back and expect this game to be 10-0 Patriots in the 4th like almost every other one. This game will most likely end up being a shootout, and McGahee being dinged up right now is not going to lessen the chances.
If we don't start early (like 1st quarter early), this game has a likelihood of getting way out of hand. Instead of running up the gut twice every set of downs, I pray our staff is smart enough to let Tim run the Tebow Time offense that we've grown accustomed to loving in the 4th quarter of all these wins. Shotgun spread, Timmy as the singleback / quarterback in the backfield!!! McGahee may prove me wrong, and may bounce back to form in this game, but he looked pretty hurt to me. What say you???
I'd also love to see us gash the Pats on a return or two, or see the D capitalize on a turnover or two with pay dirt.
