    Cletusaurus YES! YES! YES!

    Every season has its challenges, and the one facing the Patriots now is obvious: How will they handle the loss of Rosevelt Colvin?

    The outside linebacker wasn't in the midst of his best season - he ranked last among starters in tackles - but he was experienced, could get to the quarterback, and perhaps most importantly, allowed the Patriots to work a five-man rotation.

    Its going to be harder to pull off that rotation now, at least in the short term, because the Pats lack depth at the position.
