    Right now, we need Matt Cassel.  Hopefully, I won't feel the inclination to write that in the very near future.

    Yeah, I believe the Pats do need JR.  The team could use some character on/off the field.  Honestly, this guy is beyond impressive!  Let's face it- to come out and play at a high level as though he never left is outstanding!! Surprised

    I think Seau was signed 2 months too soon, maybe he can help teach our OLB's to get to the QB.

    Anyone that thinks this move is to bring in a playmaker is delusional.  No one picks up a play maker free agent during week 6.  Trade?  That would be a different story.  My prediction is Seau won't see the field until the Pats are in Indy after the bye week.  In the meantime, it is not leadership for Guyton and Mayo - it is called TEAM leadership, not two player leadership.  There is too much panic here, and it is not coming from the team, it is coming from the fans.

    Re: Do we Really need Seau?

    Junior is a good enough player when he's on the field, he's a run specialist, and as often as not he probably wouldn't last a full season.  BB is limited to 53 players in early September.  Junior has a gentleman's agreement that he will only sign with the Patriots.

    Solution:  Don't sign Junior Seau until at least the sixth week of the season.  After the first 5 weeks at least one of the 53 players will be on injured reserve, or perhaps one of the JAGs will wash out by then.  BB gets all of his 53 players plus he gets a good enough run-stopping linebacker just as the weather gets cold and the visiting teams start running more.  Too bad the other 31 coaches don't have a Junior Seau in their back pocket.

    In turn, Junior gets a far better chance of staying healthy until the playoffs.  He has skipped four preseason games and five regular season games so far, in exchange for being run over by a bull in a rodeo.  Is there anyone here who thinks the Patriots don't have at least a fair chance of making the playoffs (trolls clobbered on whiskey excepted)?  All Junior has to do is survive 11 more games.

    I wish Seau had been there on Sunday to light a fire under that defense going into overtime.

    [QUOTE]I think it's fair to bring up this point, with so many issues for the Pats on the offensive side of the ball, is it really necessary to bring in Seau.   The defense has held up pretty well, allowing less than 20 pts in every game(don't count the 3pts in O.T.).   But it seems to me that the Pats should first focus on a #3 WR, then an extra RB as it doesn't look like Taylor will be contributing anything for the rest of his career.  I just don't see how adding Seau at this point makes the Pats a championship contender.  And at 40 years old, how much does he really bring to the table.  I mean come on, this guy will probably end up on IR by Dec. Thoughts?

    I don't think there are any seasoned veterns out there who want a ring and deserve one as much as Jr. 

    His pluses are:

    1.) He'll be a cheap roster addition.  (Ring not $$ is motovation)
    2.) He'll not only be a postive influence for the linebacking core, but he'll bring a work ethic to practice that will shame anyone not giving as much effort as Jr.
    3.) Not only will he be a cheerleader on the field for the defense, when he's not on the field, he'll be a cheerleader for the offense, which I think most of us agree is the weak link so far.  Can he help with the offenses' timing?  No. But I think he can pump them up. 

    I don't see any minuses with Jr. What you are getting is basically another defensive coach who can suit up.  You are getting a guy who can see the offense from a defensive point of view, and demonstrate how & why he'd attack the offense in any given situation. 

    At least, that's my thought.

    How about if they make Seau alternate between #3 receiver on passing downs, a running back on running downs, a left tackle when he is not a receiver nor a RB, and then a LB.  Solves all of their problems, LOL.

    Seriously, any voice of leadership added will be worthwhile. And they are still thin at LB, so why not a guy that has played well for the Pats so far, knows the system, is cheap, and is soley devoted to the Pats?  I like it.

    IMO, they need two RBs - one to replace Taylor and one to replace Maroney. Shift Maroney to the #3 receiver. His hands are good, he makes sharp cuts, he has breakaway speed, he knows the system, and he contributes to the team. His dancing would help him juke defenders and pick up YACs, which seem to be lacking on this team. Edleman could one day become a #3, but he is not yet there.  Too many drops, for one thing.  Galloway is done, writing is on the wall.  Aiken is not the answer.  Bringing a RB from without could cost a pick in a trade, and they would have a key player learning a system in mid-season.  Not good. But they still need to do it. Morris will not last the season if he becomes the #1.  Faulk is no #1, though I love him all-around.

    Light must be gone for 2009.  Can this rookie cut it?

    Re: Do we Really need Seau?

    Did anybody see a pass rush lately? Or, a Qb sack, or a bliz? the D line, OK vs the run but- the entire D looks DEAD out there- no excitemnt, inspiration, enthusiasm- no LIFE. As soon as the Broncos got the ball in the 4Q, I knew the game was over for the Patriots. And turned the game off. In BB we trust??? Not any more-- it's way passed living off his laurels,  4 Supers. What have done for me lately? Another gripe-- No backup Qb- you call a trainee a backup? Just imagine-- Brady goes down again- I can't imagine! The O line appears still in shock, since the Super loss to the Giants. They appear in fog- no life. None of the players appear to be really alive out there - have they caught that from BB???

    Re: Do we Really need Seau?

    Jaacee, what the hell team have you been watching?

    The D while not stout has been consistently good. If the offense could have achieved a first down in the second half on Sunday the D probably would of been a bit more effective.

    Week 1 D allows 17 points
    Week 2 D allows 16 points
    Week 3 D allows 10 points
    Week 4 D allows 14 points
    Week 5 D allows 20 points

    15.4 points allowed per game considering the competition they've faced is pretty damn good.

    p.s.
    Real fans don't turn the game off in the 4th quarter of a tight game. In case you missed it they lost by a field goal in overtime.

    I'd rather have Ed Reed, Troy Polamalu, Patrick Willis, Mike Henderson, D'Qwell Jackson, Nmandi Asomugha, A.J. Hawk, Nick Barnett, LaRon Landry, and Shaun Phillips than Junior Seau...

    But Junior was the only free agent of the bunch, so I'll take him over what we got

    This signing concerns me.....

    The pats started off the year younger and faster.... We all knew it would take some time to gel and to break in some of the young talent. 

    Does everyone forget how painfully slow we were at LB last year?  I agree Seau is a great leader, but at the same time a defensive liability and taking some valuable playing time away from Guyton/ Mayo....

    What really bothers me is Seau could have been signed any time, it's not like every other team in the NFL was banging down his door.  Hope the signing works out, but it looks like a waste of cap space to me.

    No. 

    No matter how much better the defense gets, the defenses' job isn't to score TDs. 

    The Golden boy is the problem, not the defense. When he gets his act together we might see the Patriots play at a better level this year.

    The score of the Patriots versus the Broncos should have been 31-17, not 17-20.

    Re: Do we Really need Seau?

    SmokingJoe, could'nt agree with you more. We are only giving up 15 or so points per game and forcing turnovers (which btw the O is unable to exploit) because of the young legs on defense. Now we are getting older..

    The defense is not the reason we are loosing guys.. we were in all games because of the defense. we lost 2 because we let go a key cog in the wheel: Jabar Gaffney / 3rd WR..

    Much as I love BB, some of these personell decisions are highly questionable..
