    Deion Branch

    I never thought I would say this, but we are going to need this guy Sunday. Baltimore can cover and you can bet they will take Welker out of this game and possibly Hernandez too. Lloyd will probably give us a little something, but in my opinion one of the guys that don't usually get the ball are going to have to get the ball on Sunday.

    If Houston had the defensive line, you can say that Baltimore has the secondary. Last year it was Edelman that was getting the looks when Brady figured out they weren't going to let him go to Welker. Sunday it looked like Michael Hoomanawanui was running free while Brady was looking towards Welker - somebody else is going to have to be apart of this passing game Sunday...who's it going to be?

    If only Gronk...!?   Anyways, the pats are going to run the ball quite a bit i think.

    I also think Vereen is a more likely candidate to take up some of the receviing slack and mismatch potential. Branch is unable to get separation well enough and consistently enough to be a regular target. He is also less likely to see time if we use two TEs which is highly likely.

    But Vereen will be on the field when Ridley is not. And if they try to cover him with a LB it will be a mismatch. If they come out with a nickle package they can change the formation and run the ball with Vereen and the two TEs. Shame Gronk wont be one of those two. We may try to upgrade his backup over the offseason.

    Stallworth going down was big.  Branch brings absolutely nothing At this point.  I didn't see a ball go in his direction or his named called all game.

    Well, dont count him out 100% of the plays. He could catch one or two passes. And maybe make a first down. And every first down will help. But I agree that I do not expect him to be able to be a truly significant contributor.

    Hoping that Lloyd steps up more then in the Houston game.

    Re: Deion Branch

    Baltimore usually defended Welker with Webb, without Webb...

     

    Good luck, plus, Vereen vs. Lewis? Vereen. I do agree that Hernandez won't factor much into the game though, Reed is most likely to take him on.

    They're going to take Welker out of the game? How, Pollard going to break his leg?

    He had 8 catches for 142 in their last meeting. Lloyd also went over 100 by the way (9 for 108).

    disagree, with vereen(if we are that smart to piut him at wr) and welker in the passing game, hern will  get his chances.

    vereen can get free lloyd cant

    Re: Deion Branch

    Michael Hoomanawanui was open all day over the middle in that Houston game, the question becomes...will Brady throw it to him?

    I like Vareen doing something as well.

    He's not a WR, he's a RB that matches up well against S & LBs. Against a CB, he'll be defended and taken out the game.

    Depends, he rarely ever looks off Welker.

    Re: Deion Branch

    If Deion Branch gets quality reps against the Ravens, we are in trouble   Sad to say, but he is not the same player that he was in the SB years.  Branch is strictly a short route precision receiver and can no longer create separation.  He replaces Lloyd if necessary, but this would be a downgrade.
