    Re: BB Continues To Be A Trailblazer

    Might add how now every team is looking at their 2TE sets and using Gronk and Hernandez as the prototype and BB got both in the same draft. (See SF, Cowboys all drafted TEs despite the prescence of good TEs on their roster Davis and Witten). Teams are getting the idea that TEs pose huge match-up problems if they bring certain skill sets. And the PAts still have Ballard who could be a great in-line blocker. Just an observation, but the Cowboys have traded up in the past with limited success (Claiborne, Bryant). They are learning that you can still fill out your roster with decent players drafted later than the 1st. I really think Belichick looks at 4 or 5 players he wants to draft in the 1st round and if those players aren't there he attempts to trade down and get some value picks.

    Re: BB Continues To Be A Trailblazer

    As I stated in the post-draft thread; the addition of two rookie WRs not only makes for camp competition it means Brady has different options ; hopefully this means that Brady's favorite WR goes back to being the "open one" instead of Welker on a 4 yard screen or short hitch. Been lobbying for a FB for awhile now for the goaline and extra pass protector. Blount obviously is not a FB, but he could easily split carries with Ridley, Vereen, and Boldan IMO. Is Bolden still on the roster?

    To me the Pats O needs to continue to improve the running game and develop better options in the vertical passing game. It seems like Brady is throwing more short to intermediate routes which usually endanger WRs and TEs to some degree. I think this is why so many posters lobbied for Wallace, but I knew that was not going to happen (to much $$$) so they got experienced route runners like Jones. Jones only needs to make like 30 catches to  be effective. Another thing I might add is the obvious, trite observation that no offense, no matter how complex and successful, should ever be predictable. Offensive predictability is usually the kiss of death in the NFL.

    The Pats have a good run D (8th overall), but the pass D needs some work. I do believe that teams are racking up yardage after the Pats have the game in hand thus inflating the yardage in games they lose anyway. Good news is Talib has a prove-it contract, Wilson was signed, and BB drafted DBs who improve the nickel and dime. The pass D continues to improve, but after Talib went down (against the Goths) it was clear that they suffered. People forget how young this D is when compared to good, but aging Ds (Steelers, Ravens). IMHO both Jones and Hightower will have better years (or I hope they do.....maybe Chandler gets more holding calls because they definitely happened) and the addition of Wilson will improve the pass D and could alter blitz packages. I hope Armstead could be the next Cameron Wake (CFL to NFL success) that would be huge, but I am not holding my breath. The pass D needs to continue to get TOs; I don't really care that teams rack up yardage, its far more important to get TOs and hold the other team to FGs. Scoring D is far more vital than yardage stats (points per game and TO differential is more important the yardage per game by far).

    Still, Reese has done a very good job drafting both D Linemen and O Linemen and WRs (Nicks Cruz). BB is good, but with Ozzie, Ted Thompson, and SF (I know it isn't Carmen Policy but the name escapes me )there are other good GMs out there. Remind me agian; How many SBs has Parcells been in the last 15 years? Great early with Jints, but did not accomplish nearly as much with Jets, Phins, and Cowboys.

    Doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out trading down, or better yet trading into the future, might be a good idea in a weak draft.

    I think you have the Bill's as# backwards. BP never won a SB without BB. BB won three without BP.

    See? He's trolling. He's taking his own selfish agenda as a Giants fan and ruining what could be a very good thread.

    See?

    It's literally about 10-15 people here who are trolling and somehow allowed to troll.

     



    well you know what Russ? though it is fun to wind you up and though we both know what I say is true and though I did make a coherent football observation regarding my team not following ant 2 TE set as Hannah stated EVERY team is doing...you are right and I will leave it at this and bow out and let you guys go on and discuss this

     

    see deep down I am a really considerate guy so see you all on another thread sometime   Laughing

    Everyone has to learn from someone. Parcels and Young are all time greats. I don't see any issue with this post. Mr Gint also went on to say bb "expanded" on what was learned which seems to me as a compliment. Thank you for posting something reasonable.

    True, but parcels also to some degree resurrected those franchises from the ashes and in the case of dallas, built a pretty solid team to build on. Fortunately for Mr Gint, little Jerry has his hands where they shouldn't be, or perhaps the cowgirls actually win the division and advance. Same can be said for us and the Jests.
