Just last years in New Orleans. Julio was the leading receiver but still the number two guy on the depth chart.

The Cards outplayed the Patriots on both ends yesterday, I'd say it was a fluke that Gostkowski missed that FG but the Cards were the better team yesterday. It was a fluke that the Pats got lucky enough to even be in position for that game-winning FG. Not often does a player fumble when they're simply running down the clock at the end of the game.
Aaron Hernandez being hurt is a major loss, ESPN Boston is saying the earliest he'll return is October. IMO he's the most important player of our offense other than Brady. With him out that means Welker & Lloyd have to step it up. GRONK will get his, Ridley will get his if the fucking O-Line isn't shit again. Could also use some better production from Woodhead & Edelman.
Fluke or not, and I agree with what you said, in the end Arizona is 2-0 and are six wins from being a potential wild card team. In fact, Arizona is 9-2 in their last 11 regular season games.
Hernandez is very important. I think of him like a guy in fantasy baseball that can play 1B, 2B, OF, and C. He is versatile. He can be plugged in anywhere to create mismatches. He is a real FLEX player. His loss will hurt NE. NE still has a lot of weapons though.
