Good to hear Rodney confirm essentially what most of us were saying:
“I think he can come in especially during nickel and dime situations, and come down (close to the line) and play that second linebacker position like I did. He’s physical enough to help out in the run game, but he can also cover tight ends. So he can be that guy next to (Jerod) Mayo who can come in and really make a difference in that nickel and dime package. "
So basically even Rodney said that Wilson will be used situationally in a specific role to best utilize his abilities. Glad to hear Rodney confirm what I've been saying since the signing. A good signing that will be used situationally to have the most effect on the field and not necessarily a starter
Seems to me that if Wilson was to be used situationally it would be to come off the field in nickel and dime packages. Again it sounds like Rodney is saying exaxctly opposite of what you have been thinking and confirms nothing about what you said.
He thinks Wilson is still an every down player who can STAY on the field in nickel and dime packages but move up to the line and play the hybrid LB role like Rodney was so succesful at.
Now I am sure that we will rotate Tavon in as well and doubt at 34 years old Wilson will be playing 90% of the snaps or anything, but to be clear, Rodney disagrees with you.
Exactly. His true sentiments were also in line with troll RKrap who used the words "25% of plays".
That's wrong in many ways, because anyone who has a clue knows BB uses a sub[ackage or nickelpackage upwards of 75% of the time and that doesn't count a dime package.
PatsEng has unfortunately been corrupted by the RKraps and Mt Hurl types, which means his pink hat is well situated on his head.
Even when Rodney corroborates what we said and what the Irrationals claimed, they still try to twist it.
Sick. It really is.
They're the most miserable fans I've ever seen.
Closer to 60% Russ, but point taken.
however, just because the pats run 5 or more DBS 60% of the time, doesn't mean awilson will, should or could be on the field for all those snaps. Just like when we signed Ellis , or name another long in the tooth defensive player...bb managed their snaps to benefit them and our other players
awilson is a fine addition especially coupled with Talib, mccourty at safety another year, a 2md year of Dennard development, Arrington to stay put in the star role, and my fingers crossed Ras stays healthy And twilson developing. This is all predicated in staying healthy however. Meaning we need more quality depth at cb and safety. Gregory stinks, ebner is a nice story but don't want him anywhere on the field except st.....we need more quality depth.
I posted this elsewhere;
I did say that in my opinion that Washington, Jenkins and Wilson are on the wrong side of 30. I have applauded the Vollmer signing, and also agree Arrington was needed. I like Talib as a player but as everyone else in the NFL does, question his reliability. (Mentally and physically)
I also said that last years free agency signings left me really frustrated and disappointed.
And yes, I was not a fan of the Ocho, Ellis and Albert era.
Can you tell me how that translates into me wanting to bankrupt the franchise, and wildly shop for free agents?
It seems like this board is splitting into 2 camps.
First camp says we live and die for the Pats and we visit this board daily for updates and to state our passion. We think BB is the best coach in the history of the NFL. It's been 10 years since a SB win, and we want more than winning AFC east divisions, and have some concerns that when Brady retires, things will be a lot more difficult. We find some of BB's free agency decisions frustrating, and this is a good forum to vent those frustrations.
Second camp seems to say BB simply can do no wrong. How dare anyone come to this board and post a comment that disagrees with anything BB or the Pats do. And if anyone does come to this board and disagree, they will be shouted down, called names and told they are not true fans.
I am a 30 year season ticket holder (in the family for 30 years while I have footed the bill for 15 of those years) who has also attended 4 Super Bowls. I have put my money where my mouth is, and feel my passionate criticism is warranted. I don't have to tell anyone who attends games about the cost of attending in Foxboro. I read where Krafts worth was over $2 billion, of which the Pats most likely account for 85-95% of that. Still, I applaud the well thought out money management decisions, and admire the ability of cold hearted ness which other teams have such a hard time with (hello Cowboys).
Dont mistake passion for trolling and negativity.
