In response to mthurl's comment:
Did we give up a 4th rounder for him?? If so, then wow, just wow...total waste of a some what valuable pick.
A couple of things...first off it was only a matter of time before we got bit when we do soemthing like this (the whole release, sign to the practice squad, sign them to the roster, release them, sign them to the practice squad, bring em up, then cut em thing). Secondly, I don't think it matters much in the mind of Belichick, if the kid was any good they would of had him playing when Edelman went down earlier this year, they didn't. It means next to nothing that they were paying him a little extra on the practice squad too, they do that all the time with guys they like and it's not like Kraft or the team is hurting for money. I really doubt we were ever going to see him in the line up this year anyway - Philly will cut him at the end of the season after Reid gets canned and he'll be right back here, where we'll sign him, cut him, sign him, then cut him all over again.
No, Mr. Knee Jerk/Bad Readin Comprehension Man.
A 7th rounder. Our friend, Matt, just nicely posted a factual update from today that told us that NE traded a 7th rder to STL for Salas.
Whoops. Looks like you missed a potential opportunity to bash Belichick, huh, HUrlie?
Yeah because that's what I do. I say, wow this guy let's O'Brien and Brady ruin this offense! I tell everyone what coverages would be better suited for our secondary. Then I run around complaining about clock management and when we should of thrown a challenge flag. I spend three years arguing how we should of ran Ben Jarvus Green Ellis more even after Belichick comes out this summer and tells everyone WHY he didn't run him more (yet that still wasn't enough). I cry and act utterly shocked when he didn't sign hall of fame linebacker Matt Roth (remember that 8 month rant?). I bash the shotgun spread and his favorite player on a daily basis.
Oh wait...that's you:)
^there's a smiley face for you.
