    Maybe we shouldn't look into this too much but in this same piece, he also denies wanting to leave the Patriots and going to the Jets.

    Hmmmm, I don't see where he said he wants to stay with the Patriots, just he never said he wanted to go to the Jets.

    But I have a more important question--did Tom Brady show up.  Why can't the know it all media report who WAS there.

    Its not his fault he can't control the weather.  Its not like the Jetsons where he could just fly over the traffic and get to work like 99% of the rest of us.

    Yes, its voluntary.

    Its also one of the best programs in the NFL and, traditionally, only injured guys and malcontents skip out on it.

    There were at least 40 players in attendance for the first day of the voluntary workouts Monday, a source told NESN.com. Among those missing, NESN reported, were Thomas, quarterback Tom Brady and wide receiver Randy Moss.

    There are others who decide to work out elsewhere.

    Granted, he may not be happy w/ the Patriots - but i'm sure the media and those who aren't happy w/ AT will judge him anyway. Maybe he's got kids he'd rather spend time with. I don't know if the post directly above is accurate, but does that mean Moss and Brady are malconents too?

    maybe you morons think we should cut the malcontent tom brady too since he didn't show up either. Lets get rid of moss while we are at it since he got sent home last year too and he also didn't show up yesterday.  The guy is clearly not what we thought he was going to be but who do we have on the roster thats better than him right now?  ?  ?

     Maybe ESPN can ask Bart Scott.  Bart knows everything about every ex-teammate he has ever played with.

    Patriots will not have him on the team or let me rephraze this they will deactivate him and ban him from the Stadium before they allow him to mess with the youngsters and polute them the way he tried last year.

    LOL....yeah, I think I am :)

    I supported him when he got sent home by BB for the snow day. I thought that entire thing was stupid on both their parts.

    I just can't help but wonder if we ever used AT the right way. I don't have any proof to justify that statement other than sometimes players can only do what they are asked to do. Players in the past have alluded as such; including Seymour. People often said that Seymour could have gotten more sacks if he were "let loose" instead of staying within the system. Nothing wrong w/ that, but I think there's something to be said about our predictability on offense and vanilla defense. Same thing with Watson. Did he have lousy receiving numbers cuz he was a bad receiving TE - or is it because he was asked to be a blocker more often cuz of our problems w/ pass protection? I don't know.

    AT was more effective when he was allowed to move to different parts of the line for a "better matchup". So, I still have questions as to whether we used/are using AT the best way possible.

    It's interesting how our memories are so short. It really wasn't that long ago when AT was a rah-rah guy. Wasn't he the one who bought teammates "I eat humble pie" tee shirts?

    As far as Seymour getting more sacks, it wouldnt have mattered due to the fact he won 3SB's playing within the system.

    In Response to Re: Adalius Thomas Doesn't Show Up For Workout :   Used the right way? he's an OLB!  He played a little MLB because he was needed, but so what? He played CB and Safety in Baltimore.  The problem is, he got paid, and then when it got hot in the kitchen, he couldn't handle it and he folded.   He got lazy, took plays off and always acted like he had a limp he couldn't shake.  He's a classic case of a guy who got paid, lost the hunger and his career is likely over. He'll never get a better look at a ring than he did here.  The good news is, he's actually possibly CHEAP to a team that doesn't mind paying his salary what it is in an uncapped year, which is good for us. I'd love a 3rd rounder (too high, most likely), but I'll take a 4th and then somehow use that to move down to a 3rd round pick to acquire Kirk Morrison from Oakland.

    aahhh, the drama. I guess by your criteria, we should let Moss go too...He was late, got sent home, cried a little on the sidelines, took some plays off...

    By AD; another example of a non performing player after he gets his big contract.  Big bust in my opinion.  Hit the road !!

    Yep...too bad the last one was in 2004. So, if we measure the success of a scheme by the number of superbowls won.....how many has BB won since 2005? Zippo.

    Is it the scheme or is it the players? Willie McGinnest has always said it's both - in other words, u have to find the right players to play in the scheme in order for it to work. So, in some ways, it's BBs fault for not recognizing that AT doesn't fit his scheme.

    He didn't even know there were workouts!!  Shows you how on top of things he is.  If they can't trade him on draft day they'll cut him after the draft.

    Just because they havnt won the SB since 2004, does not mean that if he got more sacks they would have won.  It is extremely hard to make it to the SB.  This team was contstantly stripped of its players and personel, especially personel since 2004.  I dont care what organization it is, if they lost as many key individuals as NE has over the years do you think they would still be as competative as NE?
