    Pats announced that the following players were listed as OUT for Saturday's game:

    starting offensive right guard Neal.
    reserve offensive right guard Yates.
    starting offensive right tackle Kaczur. Noooo! Not Kaczur! Nooooooooooooooo!

    As the great philosopher Hudson said in Aliens, "That's it man, game over man, game over!"

    It's no surprise that suddenly NYG coach Tom Coughlin stopped being coy long enough to announce that the Giants would, in fact, come out and play to win instead of resting their starters. Detecting weakness in the mighty Patriot organization, many Giants players began speaking to the media about their feelings toward the New England dynasty.

    "It's not like they're Jesus Christ and his 12 disciples or anything like that," defensive end Osi Umenyiora told the New York Post. "They're an outstanding team, but they're not so far ahead of everybody else."
    Umenyiora was far from alone yesterday in expressing no fear of Bill Belichick's seemingly invincible club. The New England Patriots carry themselves as if they are NFL royalty, and the New York Giants are anxious to shove them off their throne according to the New York Daily News. Antonio Pierce decided it was a good time for an analysis of Tom Brady. "He walks around like he's Prince Charles."

    The Patriots need a miracle now to stop the viscious pass-rush of the Giants. A miracle, like, Bill Belichick playing fast and loose with the NFL Injury Report, hoping to goad the Giants organization into running their mouth so that the Pats could once again (for the umpteenth time this season) have bulletin board material to fuel their competitive fires, and on the day of the game, a stunning medical recovery of his offensive line would return the team to health.

    I can dream, can't I?

    Is this supposed to be a joke? None are listed on the Pats injury report. http://sportsline.com/nfl/teams/injuries/NE

    This must be propaganda designed to cause confusion and delay! Damn you Dr. Rat, it ALMOST worked!

    Also, watch for the pats to have 13 men on the field in the first drive in honor of the REAL Jesus and deciples.

    No, it's not propaganda. He's just afraid and is already starting to make excuses.

    TD Giants.
    7-0.

    Kaczur and Neal WERE out for the Pats, and Callaghan and some other guy were filling in, and the guys commenting for the NFL network never highlighted that point in their discussion. I thought the newbies on the right side of the Pats O-Line did a remarkable job of keeping the Giants rush in check, and it was mentioned that Belichick was keeping TE Watson in to block on that side on a lot of their plays. And yeah, a lot of the sports websites didn't pick up on the late scratch of Kaczur and Neal, and I was trying to confirm the injury report, and one had to go right to the horses mouth at the NFL site http://www.nfl.com/injuries to see that Kaczur had indeed been scratched.

    Woo! Go Pats!
