    If those two can walk, they'll play, and damn right that the same damn thing needs to be done with Haden. New England is selling out to win this game and Pittsburgh ain't winning it unless it plays the same way.

    Branch missing game is huge for us. Pound that rock inside and set up play action.

    I'm hoping Vance can play because he is a huge weapon if utilized.

    I just want Haden healthy for playoffs, I hope he isn't rushed back and re-injured.

    Haden will not be ready IMO . He will need a few weeks of practice to get back into Football shape.

    JJ is playing well .. His blocking is not as good but I am confident in his abilities .

    No Dirty Red on the injury report? I likey! Can't have this musical chair rotation again.

    I to don't want Haden rushed back. It's good to see him doing some work. Hopefully he is a go.

    McDonald would help if he can piece his glass @ss back together, but Jesse James was huge last week.

    Spence is playing. Meaning, he wasn’t even on a team.
    We’re desperate

    100% agreed. I was saying I hope Vance plays to utilize both tight ends like we did with Baltimore. I liked the damage they were doing underneath. Pats have a weaker pass rush than Baltimore so we shouldn't need the TE helping as much.

    haden aint playing no way lol. Best case is he is ready for the playoffs and I can dig that.

    even better case is we beat pats and get haden back later.

    Good points and I agree whole heartedly. I have a good feeling about this game which I gotta tell you I have not had in many years. Last year I told many people the Steelers would not get past the Pats.

    Let’s hope JuJu is ok. This is a little concerning. I have given up on Martavis his hearts not into it. Haden needs to try and play we need home field to have any reasonable shot. No way in hell we win in NE

    Pretty sure I read he was limited today. Just double checked he was limited.

    I thought the same when I saw TBA. Like how arrogant....just release it in a timely manner-and I mean when this board wants the information.

    Saw that. Unless he is a full participant today he might be ruled out. They have to make a decision on a starter. Not Moats!

    Also McDonald will probably be shelved.

    I think this is a pretty big concern. He’s been an effective blocker in the run game, and is a coverage mismatch for LBs. If it weren’t for the constant injuries, I think he’d be a very good starting TE. I don’t think his drops are any worse, or more frequent, than we have seen from James or some of our WRs.

    I would rather rest him then play Haden in this game. This game is huge but we could see them again and we don't want any setbacks.
    I want us to win, but if we don't I want us to be competitive to build confidence if we meet them again.
    And we could be lucky enough that someone else bumps them out of the playoffs before they meet us.

    Why would you not use your TE as much. If it work last week do it again.
