Vick & Seymour: OUT

Postby dirtybirdnw » Sun Oct 09, 2005 11:06 am

Apparently Vick said he didn't want to play with a knee brace so he won't start and possibly not even dress for todays game.

Schuab is the starter and the Pat's without Seymour & Harrison and most their secondary I feel good with Schuab.

This is from the Sunday NFL Countdown show. They have officially started the game "Stump the Schuab."

I'm not worried about our offense being able to score against the Pats decimated defense. Their ability to stop the run and pass is greatly damaged. They are missing their three main leaders (Harrison, Bruschi, Seymour) I don't see them shutting us down.

My concern is our defense and whether or not they can stop Brady/Dillon. We are bad against the run this year (24th in yardage allowed) and ok against the pass (15th in yardage allowed). But we keep teams from scoring (7th in PPG allowed). Beyond the PPG allowed stat our defense is pretty average this year. It doesn't make any sense since I believe that our defense as a whole is better yet performing worse.
