Inasmuch as the Dolphins ran the ball very effectively against the Patriots in the first game, the starting defense should see much action. Lord knows the Patriots, especially the secondary, certainly need practice tackling. As for the offense, it didn't look too sharp against the Jets either.

Lets see Brady but up 5 TD in the first half (4 to Moss) and put those records to bed. The way the Giants are playing... DJ Hernendez at QB could beat them so I'm not too concerned about Cassell playing the majority of that game.(Why did the Pats cut Testeverde?)

Work is work people it's the Pats job to take of business on the field week in and week out. It's just another regular season game not the Pats whole season. It's good that the Dolphins got their first win of the season last weekend. The Pats will be focused on what they need to be on Sunday. Go Pats!!!!!

While other teams will be resting their starters and letting injured players heal. The Pats won't have that luxury.
Brady wants the passing touchdown record and Belichick wants the perfect season. And you can't do that and rest players.
Which may come back to hurt the Pats in the playoffs.

please they are going to put these last two games away in the first half and sit the second. then they will have another week of full rest and start their real season. besides you really think manning is going to sit the entire game these next two weeks? watch, he will play into the second half in both.

Don't be so sure of a easy time for the Pats in those two games. They haven't pulled away from a team for a while until the Jets game and Brady didn't add to his passing touchdown total. So, they may be in longer then you think.
As for the Colts. Manning does want to stay in as much as possible to work with the backups to the injured players. But, Dungy will have the final say.

I could be wrong, but the Colts seemed to lose momentum when they took it easy toward the end of 2005, and the Steelers took SBXL. But last year the Colts played all the way through and won, so which stratgey is better?

Besides, the 1972 Dolphins played all the way, right?

the colts didnt play all the way through last year. they rest every year, its dungy's philosophy and thats why they are 1-5 in just getting to the superbowl since dungy has been in indy.
as far as 1972 there wasnt a wildcard so i believe they had to play all the way through. personally i believe in doing what the pats are doing and thats playing through regardless of record or solidifying your playoff spot. it just seems to me the teams that rest are playing scared and it seems to kill their momentum.

That is of course your opinion now because Pats didnt rest anyone. We lost to pitts in 05 not because of the rest but the distraction of Tonys son taking his on life.

they put away a 16 - 0 season

have the guys in game shape and ready to go while still having a few days to rest

just how much time off do the colts need anyway? every year they do the same thing. are they that beat up every year that they need more time off?

the worst part is they cheated by letting a team win when the playoffs had not yet been set. they cost one team a playoff spot and gave one to another. they deliberately changed the outcome of the NFL season, that's cheating! now there might be a case of collusion on top of it. the colts should watch them selves before the commish gets to them.

the only denial is by haters who can't admit it was a rule infraction for a camera placement, even after being given the facts as set in the rulebook.
