    What I'd like to see against the Colts

    At a well timed moment, I'd like to see Brady fake an injury and take a play or two off. 

    Then insert Edelman at QB, a position he played in college, and have a special rehearsed running play arranged for this situation ala 'the wildcat' and give the unsuspecting, unprepared Colts a new wrinkle to think about as Miami did to the PATS.

    (On September 21, 2008, the Miami Dolphins used the wildcat offense against the New England Patriots on six plays, which produced 5 touchdowns, four rushing and one passing from Ronnie Brown in a 38–13 upset victory.) 

    After the running play, let Edelman roll out and uncork one deep to Ocho, Price, or Underwood, or whoever else can get open, which will surely loosen up the Colts defense a bit, and in all probability totally unnerve them.

    Then let Tom trot back out to the huddle.

    If nothing else, it will liven up the game while giving other opposing teams' defensive coordinators one more headache to plan for the rest of the way.

    And if nothing else, it sure would be fun to watch.

    Edelman has played quite a few other positions this year, why not QB too....lol.

    As "cute" as that would be, BB would never do something so insulting to the Colts.  That would be like saying "You guys suck so badly, we're going to put a guy at QB who hasn't played the position in years, just for fun"  Talk about adding insult to injury!  It would be funny though.

    I'll bet BB is itching for the oppty to have Edelman throw the ball.  Could be deadly.

    I think BB would LOVE stomping the Clots.  Stomp out 4th and 2 (which WAS stolen from us, Faulk MADE IT), Stomp out 2006.  Stomp out every snotty Manning loving comment ever made.  Stomp out Polian.  Stomp out Irsay.  Stomp out resting starters instead of trying to go undefeated.  Stomp out every conservative, mamby pamby mealy mouthed Clot moment.  STOMP STOMP STOMP.
    There are not enough points in the Universe to put up on these guys.

    Re: What I'd like to see against the Colts

    They probably will stomp the colts. I think it's the kind of game where the young defense needs to a chance to continue to gel and guys like Vereen, Cannon, and Price (if he's ever allowed to touch the field) and the young guys in the secondary and the inexperienced linebackers get reps and just get more confortable in the system. This will make for better depth come playoff time because the lighter schedule allows the injured players maybe a little more time to heal because your not rushing these players back because your scared to miss the playoffs. Depth could be excellent because you'll hopefully get Spikes, Chung, Mccourty, Ocho, Connolly back and have a healthier more experienced roster. 

    Hopefully not too many more injuries over the next few games.

    It's nice to play at home too. I've been so sick of the Pat's going to Indy to play. It seems like they palyed there a lot more than Foxboro over the last decade. A good home whopping would be nice.

    Re: What I'd like to see against the Colts

    It sure looks like the Colts have the #1 overall pick locked up (personally, I think they're throwing the season on purpose), but if it was in doubt and the Patriots could afford to do it, I'd love to see them give the game to the Colts to prevent them from getting Luck.

    Then again, getting Luck might turn into a nightmare for them with Manning desperately trying to hold onto his job and others pushing for Luck to take over.

    I think Irsay, et al have "stomped" themselves enough in the public eye by tanking the season.  As an organization, they've shown they really have put all their eggs in the Manning basket for years, unlike Belichick & Pioli who were really about quality players from the first to last spots on the roster.  Brady is every bit the QB Manning is an more, but the Pats went 11-5 in 2008 because Belichick works even the backups hard and makes sure everyone knows the system.

    "Stomping" an 0-12 team is sort of like a high school kid stomping a fourth grader.  Even if that fourth grader was the little brother of someone who pissed you off for years, you're still beating up on a 4th grader. And beating a Manning-less Colts team, to me, doesn't "stomp out" a tough loss in 2006, a 4th and 2 call that was horrible on Belichick's part to begin with in 2009, or any of the regular season losses over the past six years.  Get over it, it's 2011 & the Pats are probably going to finish 13-3 :)

    Stomping out Peyton's Colts would be great. Stomping out "Painters" Colts means Jack Sh*t.

    Run the rookies in this game, and I mean all day. Brady should loft up 15-20 passes for 2 or 3 tds. The Colts are much obliged to losing this game. There is one thing on the Colts agenda........Losing.

    This is a great game to go ground chuck. Pats should be able to win throwing 20 or so attempts and just grind out a win with RB's. Give Brady a week off taking a pounding but give enough throws to avoid rust.

    How many touchdowns will "The Gronk" have against the Colts this Sunday? 1 -No, 2 -NO, 3 -MAYBE, 4 - yeah that sounds good 4 -- The Gronk's statline will read like this (8 Receptions, 122 YDS, 4 TD's). And the funny part of this prediction is this --I am dead serious! GO PATS!!!!!

    Personally, if I was a betting man, I would bet against the pats with the 21 points.  I think they will stomp the Dolts but not by 3 TD's.

    Not a bad idea, at all....but why not save it until a situation or game when something like that is needed, perhaps later on if we should fall behind in the beginning like we did against KC & Philly

    Rip their hearts out and eat it a la the Aztecs!!! Bring back their smarmy ex-coach so he can remember what a good beat-down is!!! Watch Irsay lobby the league for a rule that states opponents can't score more than 2 TD's in games involving the Colts.
