In Response to Re: first time ever that 85 could be cut?
[QUOTE]Explain WHY you think he should be cut other than your stirring the pot with this thought? All off of one game in the pre-season? You may "claim" you are a Pats fan, but, seems these types of ridiculous discussions are started by out of towners who want to get a rise out of Pats fans.

First of all, I didn't say he WOULD or SHOULD get cut. I said he COULD get cut. And the thread was more along the lines of, (likely) For the first time in his life, Chad Johnson is not an absolute lock to make a team. Star in college, star for the Bengals. So far not getting it for the Pats. Must be a strange feeling for him.
Because he hasn't actually done anything yet I guess is my reasoning...
Why'd I say Woodhead? Because the guy has diminishing returns to scale. Nothing we haven't talked about here before. He's MY size. It's much easier to get knocked the %^%^, or just plain hurt, when your so much smaller than everyone else. We seem to have some big bruisers now and, to me, it would be preferable to have one of those guys picking up a 265lb blitzing backer than Woodhead. Plus, with all the DL we have, it wouldn't surprise me if they saved the roster spot to keep an additional one.
We're cutting +/- 40 players, you don't think there's going to be a surprise or two?
It wouldn't be the first time someone that was "supposed" to be a lock for the team didn't turn out to be, ask Lawyer Milloy.
Gesus Krist... It's called speculation and debate. Anytime you say anything that doesn't involve blowing a player or coach on this team, you're considered a troll on this board...
