    This will be a tough game.  At Buffalo is always a tough place to win.  This is their Super Bowl.  The crowd will be into it.  We are missing a starting DE, OLB, ILB and McCourty is a bit gimpy.  We will have an even harder time stopping the Bills.  Who is going to start in Cunningham's place?  TBC is also hurt I think.  I guess it would be either Guyton or Fletcher.


    Hopefully Connolly will be back in time for the play-offs.  We don't want to be going with Wendell too long.  Maybe the Jets will do us a favor and lose at Chicago today so we can rest up.

    The Pats don't need the Jets help - they can take care of their own business today - screw the Jets!

    Inactive analysis for Patriots12.26.10 at 11:40 am ET
    By Christopher Price (WEEI)

    The following players were ruled inactive for Sunday’s game against the Bills: offensive lineman Dan Connolly; linebacker Jermaine Cunningham; tight end Aaron Hernandez; wide receiver Taylor Price; running back Thomas Clayton; and defensive linemen Myron Pryor, Mike Wright and Brandon Deaderick.

    The Patriots made most of these moves on Saturday — Connolly (concussion), Cunningham (calf), Hernandez (hip), Pryor (back), Wright (concussion) and Deaderick (shoulder) were all on the injury report late in the week, and were all ruled out on Saturday night. As for Clayton and Price, the two have been inactive for the bulk of the season because of personnel issues.

    The three missing defensive linemen mean that it will likely be a long afternoon again for veterans Gerard Warren and Vince Wilfork, who went almost wire-to-wire last week against the Packers because of all the injuries along the defensive line and will almost certainly do the same today because of depth issues. (They should get plenty of help from second-year lineman Ron Brace, who will also be active this week.) At linebacker, look for lots of Rob Ninkovich and even some Dane Fletcher on the outside, because there’s no Banta-Cain and Cunningham.

    On the offensive side of the ball, tight end Rob Gronkowski will be utilized more in the passing game because Hernandez is sidelined. As for the offensive line, look for Ryan Wendell to take most of the snaps that Connolly would get, while Quinn Ojinnaka moves up on the depth chart among the interior linemen.

    I am surprised that he didn't pick Vince Young or Kerry Collins - you know - since Moss made Brady and all that:)

    Has Carter said anything regarding Moss and his season after he left the Patriots?

    Seasons greetings from Orchard Park, N.Y.

    December, 26, 2010

    By Tim Graham (ESPN)
    ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- Cold, gray and windy is the forecast for Sunday's matchup between the New England Patriots and Buffalo Bills here at Ralph Wilson Stadium.

    Temperature at kickoff will be about 23 degrees, but it will feel like 9 degrees, with winds gusting up to 23 mph. The chance of snow is 50 percent.

    New England could clinch the AFC East title and home-field advantage throughout the playoffs, while a victory over the Patriots would make Buffalo's season. The Bills have won four out of their past six games, including an overtime loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers.

    Buffalo has lost 14 straight games to New England and 19 out of 20 in the series.

    He started saying right after the trade that the Patriots were giving up on the season by trading Moss - that without Moss they had no passing game, and that Welker wouldn't catch any more passes - later said after the Branch trade that Branch is just a guy - not a difference maker like Moss - most recently Carter has been saying that Moss is aware he made a huge mistake by forcing his way out of New England - and that he needs to start trying harder on the field or no one will sign him next year

    Carter is Moss's PR rep to ESPN

    Re: Patriots/Bills Game Thread

    We are going to see a lot of relatively new faces get a lot of playing time today.  Which is good, when you think about it.  There may be some surprises to us Pats fans why BB has some of them on the roster.  It is the D that I am most concerned about as this unit is limping the most.  After building up a head of steam with good games against the Jets and Bears, they struggled against GB and now have to face a Buffalo team that is not laying down for anybody.  Even though the offense may continue to kick butt, will the D keep the Bills off the field and give the offense time to operate?  We do not need a repeat of last  week's huge ToP advantage the Packers' enjoyed.  But, then again, the Packers offense is better than the Bill's.

    GO PATS!!

    Carter actually did that at the same time that he was telling people that Moss knows he made a big mistake by forcing the trade - he is now officially on the Pats bandwagon:)
