Regarding who should cover who, I say
Revis - Lloyd (he'll be the big play guy. WE can't give up cheap points)
Wilson - Welker (time for Wilson to be a big boy)
Cro - Hernandez (Hernandez to me is their most dangerous guy)
Landry & LB - Gronk (gotta double team him with a S and LB)
Bell - Gaffney/Stallworth (Bell's gotta be able to take on the 5th receiver one on one)
That is how I would play it also, but I don's see the pats going empty too often with the way Rex likes to bring pressure by overloading one side,
they will need a back or hernadez as a h-back for blitz pick up and as a safety valve or screen option.
