  1. Stephen Neal is listed twice as a Guard and a Center — I think you meant to add Koppen down at center. Don’t mean to keep coming on here to correct, just trying to help out.

  2. Vicki says:

    Jon Stupar is a TE (#6 on your practice squad), and he is also a potential long-snapper.

  3. Jake says:

    I hope the Patriots will have a good year!

  4. Jets fan says:

    Pats suck

  5. Someone says:

    I think that Chad Johnson will start while Jabar Gaffney, and Wes walker will both play in the slot. And i wouldn’t be surprised to see Brandon Meriweather playing Corner. I think he knows the system and he is fast enough. In case of Jerob Mayo, I think he will play in a passing situations, until he learns to shed blockers. But overall i agree. Nice Depth chart.

    chad johnson what the f#@k r u smokin?

  7. Simon says:

    I agree with the roster posted in the main, but I think your trade value for Cassel is a little high. I can’t see us getting that sort of value.

  8. shane says:

    i welker will be the # 2 with chad jackson and gaffney in the slot

  9. Greg says:

    yomomma: Hmmm… I think the post clearly reads “Chad Jackson”… there was no edit there.

    shane: Wes Welker is a slot receiver, pure and simple. There’s no question of his abilities, but he is best suited in the slot. That will not change.

    And thanks to all who notified me of the Stephen Neal / Dan Koppen mistake. Keep in mind I did this all off the top of my head, so I was bound to make a couple of silly errors.

    i was refering to someone’s comment. not the post.
