Harvey. You were right. There was no announcement, yet. I do believe there will be very shortly, maybe today. We packed up a round 7:10 or so, and by the time we left most other outlets did as well.
I don't think the news is major, it sounds like they did Wendell from the talk.
The Pats, as do every NFL team, and MLB including the Sox, will let the outlets know they are making an announcement. Even a signing like Wendell, which of course is not major, but it allows each outlet if they wish to do a remote on site. We had Field Yates there last night and there were a good 20 or so at the stadium.
Have some fun at my expense Harvey, but I am quite sure I am correct. I was regarding Ballard, Wilson, Kelly, Mayo and Sudfeld. You if I recall were touting how good Jenkins was going to be. And of course how Wilson was the answer.
Go ahead and have some fun at my expense, and lets all hope I am wrong again regarding the Talib injury.
Ya know what Harvey, if I get called out again today, I am going to post the exact same thing I posted yesterday. Go ahead and rack your brain out trying to think about when the last time you were right....what was it, 2009?
Me saying Jenkins is a solid vet camp competition move is me saying "how good Jenkins will be"??
Hmm. I don't think that quite adds up. Wilson was a much better choice at his money than Ed Reed at his, yes. Absolutely. 6 million or more with Ed Reed here and our team would be worse We'd be up against the cap and in jeopardy of not being able to hand out extensions to current starters we count on.
Wendell might be extended, maybe McCourty at seasons's end (Nink already), but somehow I am wrong all the time. lol
Wilson is no MIke Huff though! All hail Mike HUff and Ozzie Newsome! bawhaha
Last time I was right? I said Baltimore is in a cap hell with Pitt and NYGs and won't make the plaayoffs. Balt is 3-5. You can't swap out at many people at once and expect it not to hurt. I am right most of the time, RKrap.
You're wrong most of the time. The difference is, I don't follow anti-BB media heads around like a puppy dog and race to a board to namedrop for attention. You are worse than a gossiping 14 year old girl.
do you mean to say if a negotiation/signing is announced today, you will say I told you so?
no one was comparing the signing of AWilson to other signings...when he was in camp, already signed, you were raving about him, how he was going to be great. I said he didnt look so good at camp, but you vehemently argued I had no clue. Ditto Ballard. Ditto Jenkins.
you are one strange bird...
Who wouldn't rave about picking up a player with the resume of an Adrian Wilson? The guy was the best SS in the NFC for a decade with Brian Dawkins. If BB had picked up Dawkins in 2010 like Denver did, would you have complained? You probably would have. His resume is arguably that of a HOFer, especially if Kurt Warner didn't have a melt down before half in SB 43.
Ballard, you ended up being correct on. Good work. What is with this Jenkins crap? I never said a word. I said a good vet camp competition signing and I said Donald Jones had good football IQ so I can see why they targeted him.
Who cares? The chips will fall where they fall. The fact is, this club is 7-2, mostly due to the defense, BB's great teambuilding approach off the lockout with god drafts and depth, and isn't in a cap hell like the teams you raved about here the last 3 years. The Jets, Ravens, Steelers, Giants, etc. Shalll I start a thread discussing those teams .500 or sub .500 seasons?
BB cannot stop time and fly out onto the field and stop Brady from being a moron in SBs or playoff games, blocking bad decisions or INTs. So, any bleeps on the radar in recent years, are much further away from the GM of this team than you imply here. Ohhhh! The sky is falling because BB deemed one player a better fit than another. The horror of the best GM ever making wise decisions (Generally) in the best interest of the TEAM.
I am very thankful with BB's approach as a fan because it flat out works. Someone has to be cut, some make it, some don't. I don't really care who it is as long as it works. 9/10 the guy makes the right move. Some humans get hurt, some run out of gas, some can't adjust to the system, some get beaten out by a surprise prospect. This happens in every camp in the NFL, RKrap, not just here.
You're more interested here in trolling as an ESPN employee and getting attention with stuff you may or may not have knowledge on than you are being a real Pats fan. You don't deserve season tickets nor do you deserve to follow this team. You like the Jets for some reason, gloss over their pathetic paper tiger team builds every year and then make it seem like if BB cuts Jake Ballard or Mike Jenkins, that the world is coming to an end.
Congrats on guessing right that Ballard wasn't going to make it. For you to pat yourself on the back on topics like this is sad for a 50 something adult. The fact is, no one has clue what is going on behind the scenes, in BB's head, especially YOU.
please admit you do not have a clue either.
