posted at 11/19/2009 2:07 PM ESTlets face it, the Jets realize they cannot win with Sanchez throwing and need the run game to produce to beat the Pats. The Pats are depleted on the D-line, and whether the D-line was tired or not last week, the coaches thought they were. That is all that matters. The guy that makes the biggest diff on the D-line is Wilfork, yet he needs to be rested to be effective. Yet Brace gets on the field for only 2 snaps. Seems this is the week for Brace to get some snaps and produce. His legs are fresh, no nagging aches and pains on him. Give him 20 snaps and see how he progresses. If Pats go to Pitts and Cincy in the playoffs in the cold, those 2 running teams will dictate all hands on deck on the D-line...not in the D-backfield. Time to produce Ron

He's "going to do what he feels is best for the football team" and "play the players that give them the best chance to win", if BB feels that Brace doesn't fit either, he's not going to play regardless of health and need.
