In Response to Do we Really need Seau?
[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?

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?
