Didn’t have time to do a game preview for today, so here is a good one from Patsblog.
Gene Mruczkowski Signed: Patriots signed ex-Patriots Gene Mruczkowski to a contract, terms of the agreement we not disclosed. A versatile G/C, Mruczkowski should help fill some depth on the O-Line, as Billy Yates was the latest to go down.
Garrett Mills on IR: To make room for Gene, the Patriots placed rookie TE/FB Garrett Mills on injured reserve. The Patriots 2006 fourth round draft choice, Mills did not see the field this year. His finest moment came in the preseason opener, where he hauled in five catches for seventy-five yards.
Andre Tippett to the HOF?: Andre Tippett became one of 25 semi-finalists for induction to the Hall of Fame. Its about time!!! I really hopes this Patriots’ legend can make in to Canton, and be enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Good luck to Andre!
Asante on Tap? With the breakout year Asante Samuel is having, I think its about time he got a contract. Reportedly, Samuel has begun preliminary contract negotiations with the Patriots, and with our cap space, we hopefully can get a deal done.
Congratulations Troy I never got around to celebrating Troy Brown’s clinching of the franchise’s record in receptions previously held by Stanley Morgan. Sorry Troy, but you’re never going to catch Stanley’s YPC record.
Bring it Favre! This Sunday’s game will more than likely be the last time the Patriots will play Brett Favre (unless both teams play in the Superbowl). Last time the two teams played was in 2002, and the Packers owned us, 28-10. I have to say I am a little worried about today’s game, the Packers are rolling, and we’ve been stopped. After hearing Brady in his press conference, I can tell this team, and Brady does not have much left in the tank. If we somehow lose this must win game, we will have no confidence going into the big Bears game, and we will likely lose. Greg’s Prediction: Patriots 27 Packers 17
