[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Gasper Doesn't Have a Clue : [QUOTE]No I do not think Thomas was right, and that he should have kept his mouth shut. I am not focusing on that ONE issue but as I read the Gasper article, it is more then one player, and an issue over the FULL season not just this past week. And I dont need to follow Gasper around to know there is a problem. I can look at the record, I can look at the players faces durning and after games. RESPONSE: Really? What do you see? How do you expect them to look when they blow leads, and lose one game in OT, and two by one lousy point? As for Vrabel, Seymour and Wilfork. Its not about there production on the field, its the OTHER players left here who are reacting to how players are treated. I guess you have never heard of how morale can effect a work environment. Of course football is a business and these are grown paid atheletes but have you never had a event happen at where you work where it has a negitive effect and effects the production of others still there? RESPONSE: How do you know that player morale is down? While I think that the 2009 Patriots should have a better record, and are capable of playing better than they have...they're playing with a bunch of 1st and 2nd year players at ILB, and in the secondary. In other words...they're not as good as the Patriot teams in the past. Of course football is a business and these are grown paid atheletes but have you never had a event happen at where you work where it has a negitive effect and effects the production of others still there? RESPONSE: What event are you talking about that has thus far affected this team? Do you really buy the BS that BB has lost his team because he correctly dissaplined a few players? The reality is, and even Tom Brady said it, they have lost there leaders and with it the toughness and grit to fight thru tough times. RESPONSE: They are rebuilding in the secondary, and at ILB. The players that were replaced, Tedy Bruschi, Rodney Harrison, and Mike Vrabel, were done. Richard Seymour, for whatever reasons, has underachieved ever since the Pats gave him a big contract extension. We talk about how they got rid of ty law, lawyer milloy, etc in the past. That is true, but hey never got rid of so many all at once. So yes it is my opionion it has had a negitive effect, just as it is yours that it is not. RESPONSE: Of course losing so many good players at once hurts. But, it was the right thing to do. Harrison, Bruschi, and Vrabel were done. Seymour was vastly overrated...and the Pats got a huge return for a fading player. I am sure you had the Pats at 7-5 before the season started at this point right TexasPat? Yea, everything is just fine..... RESPONSE: Are you trying to argue that the Patriots would be much,much better than 7-5 if they had kept Seymour?? Pleeaassseee. I agree that the Pats should have won at least two of the three close losses against Denver, Indy, and Miami, with the team they currently have. But, thats' on the players for not executing in the clutch...not on BB. These young players need to grow up, and start producing. They're not going to do that on a team that has no displine...and on a team with veteran "leadership" like that displayed by Adalius Thomas.

Texaspat you have the oddest way of arguing I have ever seen. If any makes a comment, your response is "HOW DO YOU KNOW THIS TO BE TRUE"??? Then you go on and make your point with no more knowledge about the situation then anyone else.
Newsflash, this is a DISCUSSION BOARD, where people come to discuss topics and give their opionion. Stop acting like you know more then anyone else. If you disagree fine, but stop with the lame "how do you know" crap like you have all the answers.
