    Michel is a question mark... They traded away/let go Bolden and Michael Gillespie..... Now Hill is done for the year......

    Should they be concerned about the running game? Now I know they really don't care about the running game for the most part but they have to have something to take the pressure off Brady and company

    It's only week 2 so no there is no need to panic at all... But it's something to think about, no?

    Not sure what the Pats were thinking, "Hmm let's go with no power back this year". None of the RBs on the roster are power backs IMO and I feel we need one. Look for NE to use a 4 TE Set LOL, Devlin being the 4th.

    A lot of that will be on the line. I don't expect much out of him this early, he has missed a lot of practice.

    Well yeah, that's true.. the OL needs to make holes but he still needs to be able to make the cuts, make the right reads and get yardage and yards after initial contact

    And because of all the missed practices not sure that will happen. If healthy he has the skills.

    it probably won't happen until week 9 or 10... Assuming he can remain healthy

    Hill "was" the power back.

    We are making changes on the fly. Bolden would have resigned if he hadn't gone elsewhere.
    Hill looked great - not going to happen
    Not many teams can lose 3 of their running backs and be competitive. We can. Stay tuned.....

    Yeah, I think we all felt pretty damn good about the RB depth chart a week ago, not sure what anyone wishes they'd've done differently.

    I am sure Josh will have a solid game plan.

    Vegas likes the Jags by a point. That means the Pats win. Hope to see Michel play but perhaps this is not the game to throw a rookie into. Or maybe it is?

    It's game two of the season and we really do not know what was wrong with him. But I do not want to rush him back. I would rather have him sit if we can get it done with White and Devlin.

    I don't see right now how they can't do it with just those two... But if White goes down they could be in some big trouble. I am expecting Gronk to be shut down however
