    The Patriots are going to have to get by without Ty Law for at least a month -- and perhaps as long as seven weeks -- after the Pro Bowl cornerback was diagnosed with a broken bone in his left foot by a team doctor. Law collapsed on the field after turning the wrong way while in pass coverage during Sunday's 34-20 loss to the Steelers at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh.

    The Patriots did not report to the NFL office that any players visited yesterday, though if the players came in after 4 p.m., when the list is due, the team can wait to report the visit until the next day. There are some older defensive backs out there -- including Otis Smith and Matt Stevens, two players who know the New England system -- or the Patriots could activate Earthwind Moreland off the practice squad. There aren't many options, however.

    Wow. If he really starts, they can prepare for a 21 game losing streak.

    I know he sucks. But if any team can get production out of Stevens, its the Patriots.

    That's so true.

    I wish the guy well. He may not have been a very good player for the Texans but hey he made it to the NFL. So many don't. I don't think he ever gave less than maximum effort. He just wasn't right for this team.

    You can expect to give up a lot of touchdowns when his name is Matt Stevens.

    I was wearing my texans hat in Boston, as I usually do. A girl walks up to me and she complimented my hat and said her cousin played for them. I asked (very excitedly) really, who? Matt Stevens was her answer. I say "Oh, yeah I know who that is, he was......good?" Tried my hardest not to say anything bad about him, I think the grotesque look on my face gave it away though.

    Stevens played on Patriots before and was not the embarassment for them as he was for the Texans.

    If that had been me, I don't know if I could have held back my laughter.
