Two words: Trap Game.I'm sure BB will warn everyone of this possibility, but it is so easy to look past this year's Colts. TB is all fired up again, so I doubt he'll accept anything less than perfection from the offense - which should be enough against the Colts.

I don't think any player would forfeit without playing and they will put in a certain level of effort everytime however when you feel deep down that there is no way you can win that effort might not be optimum.As far as Manning, he doesn't play defense but he can put up points and keep his defense off the field to hide their flaws. The game changes a bit if Manning comes out and puts his team up 14-0 in the first 5 minute of the game.

"I’m told the Patriots are releasing the former 49ers castoff, though the reason is not clear." Says Ian Rapoport

I truly hope that the offense for the Patriots is ready to go the minute they step on the field for the pre-game stretch. I hope the Patriots bury the Colts worse than the Saints did. I know it won't happen but that would make it a great Sunday. 72 to 10, sounds good. Brady with 7 TD passes and 600 yards passing. Thats insane!!!

Adams played primarily in the slot in nickel and dime packages, though he received some work on the outside at times this season, most notably when Antwaun Molden was benched in the second half against the Steelers.
The decision to release Adams was relatively surprising, even from a team that had already parted ways with some bigger-name players earlier in the season. Adams seemed to play well in his role on defense, and he performed with some attitude, getting in opponents' faces and not shying away from contact during and after the play.
There was no concurrent roster transaction, so the Patriots only had 52 players on the active roster after Adams' release. Of course, any transaction leads to the possibility of safety Ross Ventrone getting promoted from the practice squad, but it's still unclear at this point. The Patriots will likely announce another move in time for Wednesday's practice.
Adams' release could be a positive sign for the health of safety Patrick Chung or cornerback Devin McCourty, though the former would make more sense. Chung, who has missed the last three games with a foot injury, could return to his traditional spot, which would move Sterling Moore from safety to slot cornerback.
Moore, a cornerback by trade, has played on the outside and in the slot, and he has started at safety for the last three games. With Kyle Arrington, Molden, Moore and Julian Edelman in the mix, the Patriots would have four cornerbacks on the roster if Chung was healthy enough to get back on the field this week.

The Patriots lost by 3 points in Buffalo in a game in which they played horribly defensively, didn't look that good on offense after the 1st quarter, had 100 yards in penalties, and turned the ball over 4 times. That Buffalo team is much better than Indianapolis.If the Patriots play as poorly as they did in that Buffalo game, they still win at home against the Colts.
I fully expect the Colts to attempt a bunch of gimmicky plays, including onside kicks. Hopefully Belichick will have the team ready for them.edit - the game is projected to be so much of a stinker that not only has it been flexed from Sunday Night Football to a 1PM game, but the only places it is even being televised is a few networks in New England and a few networks in Indiana.
