    there is a roster spot open-who could fill it?

    what remaining free agent could come in and help the pats in the playoffs?regardless there age,or how late in the season it is.there is a roster spot open.in the playoffs you win or go home.and with the loss of welker means every player will need to step up there game.it cant hurt to bring in a player with some talent that could help the pats.it could determine one remaining game into four remaining games.that one empty roster spot could be very important.from a player with a game winning int.to a player with a miracle tyree catch.not saying there isnt a player on the team now that couldnt do these things,but who knows what fate holds,or has instore for a team or player.

    No free agents, I don't think you could ask anyone to come in the week the playoffs begin and put them into this offense.  We will have to run the ball and play a controled type offense. 
    The high flying is not going to get it done without WW.  Play action with morris and taylor running the ball.

    Get ready to see more of Isiah Stanback, Sam Aiken and Matt Slater.  I think Edelman will fill in ok, but Welker'sw loss is not easy to overcome.  Maybe this will force the Pats to use the TE's more.  Moss will be jammed and blanketed, so maybe the Pats will involve the RB's out of the backfield more on short passes.

    Almost doubtful they would bring in anyone at WR.

    First you aren't learning the playbook in 3 or 4 practices.

    Then even if you were successful in learning the plays you are not likely assimilating them into the game plan with any comfort level worth any value to the team.

    Next you have to develop some chemistry with Brady to earn even a little bit of his trust. We've seen in the past if he doesn't trust you he's not even looking at you.

    Finally its the end of the season, this is a playoff team, lots of lesser quality teams with less roster depth have had an opportunity to bring in any of the guys that are available out there all year long.  If any of the entire leagues personnel departments thought those players had any value to add to their respective teams then they would already be on an active roster. There is a reason those guys are out there, still.

    The Patriots will make the adjustments they can with what they have to best utilize the skill sets of those current roster guys. That's what they do, for better or worse.

    If they feel they can use TE Ben Watson in more of a Dallas Clark, Jason Witten WR type role then they might. They did a bunch of that in 2006 I think it was.

    Also do not be surprised if they put kevin faulk out there as they have used him spread out and in the slot at times in the past.

    they do need to get back to the game play of the 2003-04 seasons.spreading the wealth and the dinks and dunks.regardless if they bring in a receiver or not.they will have to address that need in the off-season.for welker could be out up to 12 months from now.
