Default Busing will be attacked by Brady

This matchup is giving me nightmares. I imagine they'll bracket Moss with Pollard and Dunta and that will leave Busing out on an island. Brady knows how to attack weaknesses as good as anybody and I'm sure Belichick will spend all week scheming to attack him. Anyone else feel they'd almost rather see Ferguson play over Busing?

I fear this could be the difference in the game, I'll be praying Brady only plays a half of football and our good half of football happens to be in the 2nd half. Just weather the storm when 12 is in there. The other matchups don't scare me as much-Cushing can cover Watson and Welker is unstoppable with all the underneath catches but as long as we take good angles and tackle we can contain him. Their defense doesn't scare anyone not even the Bills and their running game is Texans-esque (bad).

You can expect them to pick on #23 as well. I completely agree with you that it may have a HUGE impact to have Busing in there but I'm afraid Ferguson just doesn't have the wheels. I'd rather go with him though because I feel like he's a smarter player. His angles (Busing's) are what really scare me.

To be honest, I feared dunta being molested right before our eyes. If busing is in there this is gonna be terrible. The O will have to win this one.

Default Re: Busing will be attacked by Brady

i think we can do it with the right brackets. dunta cant play moss - too slow and too small. matching a rookie against moss is asking for it, but pounding on him with quinn and the near safety for the duration might work. if dunta actually gives his full effort and has spent the week watching tape, he can follow welker around with linebacker support (welker being the biggest threat IMO). we cant beat brady with schemes, but we can match up against his cast if we're able to keep the patriots offense from getting behind us.

Default Re: Busing will be attacked by Brady

This is a big game for Arian Foster. If we can get him going, it will help our defense alot because it means the Patriots offense will be off the field. I'm not scared of their defense. They have some injuries to that side and I believe our offense can play with anyone in this league. However, Foster has to have a good game to help us offensively and defensively.

Scary....he better stay over the top at all times and not let anyone run by him. Still wondering why Ferguson doesn't roll over to that spot instead of Busing.

Default Re: Busing will be attacked by Brady

Dunta has been picked on all season long. I think they'll have Pollard covering behind him regardless of where Moss is on the field.

My keys to victory:
1. Get as many DB's on the field to limit their passing attack. Force NE to run the ball more and eat up clock. The quicker we can close out the 1st Qtr/1st Half, the quicker Brady gets off the field. Can't let them march down the field at will.
2. Get pressure on Brady. DL has to step up, blitz early and often. We have to get pressure on Brady early in the game. Even if they're completing short routes, keep blitzing and knock Brady on the ground. The more we can do that, the sooner they should take him out to avoid injury. If his jersey stays clean, the longer he probably stays in.

I think it's almost a no-brainer at this point to put Quin at FS, start Reeves and Dunta, and play McCain at nickel.

We obviously won't do that, but Quin's a natural at FS and our depth at CB is 10x better than our depth at S right now.

Actually he started another game but wa pulled at halftime. Cant remember which one. The only reason I can see starting Busing is to have a built in excuse to loose this game. Kubiak is pulling out all the stops to save his sorry ass.
