It was less than a week ago that the Patriots went down to Jersey with 4 starters down and destroyed the Jets's playoff chances, the job security of some of their high brass, players, and even left their super-fan as just an average Ed. Now the Pats get ready to emerge from a mini-bye which should hopefully give starters like RDE Chandler Jones(rookie), LG Logan Mankins, and RT Sebastien Vollmer time to heal up for the trek down to Miami in the wake of their #3 DE being suspended. However, Belichick's team in the past couple of years has been under-whelming coming off the regular bye. Any given Sunday as they say, and the Dolphins always seem to play the Pats hard.
Starters that will be definitely playing that the Dolphins haven't seen on this team before: CB Alfonzo Dennard(rookie), CB Aqib Talib, LB/OLB Dont'a Hightower(rookie), SS Steve Gregory, C Ryan Wendell, WR Brandon Lloyd,TE Daniel Fells(in place of Gronk), Nate Solder from RT to LT, and Devin McCourty from CB to FS.
Questions below. Also, since the Patriots killed Fireman Ed I think you guys owe us pictures of your cheerleaders. Or pictures of Mrs. Tannehill. Ryan's definitely beats Tom's in that category, with all due respect to Gisele.
