    But that would only be considered a bust by you...Spikes is not a bust. He is a good reliable player. Just because we walk from him doesn't mean he's a bust. It just means financially it didnt make sense, we're looking for a more complete type of LB, or some internal issue (behavior). Spikes provided more than someone like Chad Jackson ever did. Spikes isn't a bust.

     

     

     

     



    If a team walks away from a 2010 draft pick in 2013, that pick is a bust. 

     

     

    There is no other possible way to look at it.

     




    Stop being a debbie downer. I just put down 3 possible ways to look at it. Spikes isn't a bust. So say if we do walk from him and he proceeds to play 10 more seasons at a good not great level, would you still consider him a bust?

     



    Just to let you know, he's a Jets fan. That's why he says replacing a potential pro-bowler with a potential all-pro means the potential pro-bowler is a bust.

    Seems you're in the minority, much like most of your points here.  To each his own I guess.

     



    And I have no problem with being in the minority.  This is just opinion.  Your opinion and my opinion differ.

     

    No need to be a total dick about it.



    Like telling someone to "Eat Me"?? All because they pointed out YOUR mistake?

    So now I guess we are dealing with no brains or class....nice combo buddy....

    And we'll deal with that when the time comes. Far as we know Collins could replace his production.



    I'm sure they can/could replace him.  If the pick was good, they wouldn't need to replace the spot after 28 games.

    Not trying to be a dick.  Just pointing out what a ridiculous standard you hold BB to.  You've been on record saying that he sucks as a GM and is a cheater because of Spygate.  It would appear you have a vendetta against him which has ignited you to make foolish statements regarding every aspect of his work.  When you make those statements, don't expect others not to confront you.

    It's funny, though.  You are offended for me opining on your take, but yet I constantly see you lambaste others on the Bruins board for holding a ridiculous premise.  It seems like a bit of a pot meet kettle situation with you.  You come here and state ridiculous opinions and although you're free to state what you want, don't get offended for others countering your opinion or critiquing it.  You do exactly that on the Bruins board, but in a much more dickish and sarcastic way.  It seems like your role reverses over here.  But whaddevaa

    It's not my fault the GM has a pretty average drafting record, signs big name busts and hasn't won a Superbowl since he was undressed by the league for cheating.

    Without Tom Brady, this team would be nowhere.

    Spikes is just another notch on his ladder of failure in the draft (assuming he walks away, which is what this thread is all about).

    if the Patriots have no intentions of keeping Spikes after this year, they may as well trade him before the trading deadline this year.

    Re: If We Do Walk From Spikes

    To Not-A-Shot and anyone else who thinks this way,

    SPYGATE WAS A WITCH HUNT!

    http://www.secsportsfan.com/taping-is-legal-kiddies.html

    "Our guy keeps a pair of binoculars on their signal-callers every game," says Broncos coach Mike Shanahan. "With any luck, we have their defensive signals figured out by halftime. Sometimes by the end of the first quarter."

    Ok, take out your notebooks and and cross out everywhere you thought that stealing signs is illegal. Wow, you guys are misinformed.

    ESPN's John Clayton. 2006
    "Teams are always trying to steal signs and signals off other teams. That's just football."

    And this from ESPN's ombudsman,

    http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/columns/story?columnist=schreiber_leanne&id=3438752

    For an hour and 15 minutes preceding the Goodell news conference, this "SportsCenter Special" was a runaway train of inflammatory speculation that had Schlereth and Carter placing asterisks on all the Patriots' Super Bowl wins under Belichick.

    Several times, Wingo tried to remind viewers this was simply the analysts' personal opinion, but Schlereth resisted the notion that his opinion was debatable. Nothing short of a flashing red "speculation" sign filling half the screen for a full 75 minutes would have had any chance of counteracting the effect Schlereth and Carter were having.

    Where were the calm heads?

    Even normally calm heads like John Clayton and Sal Paolantonio, ESPN reporters put on screen to comment from their remote locations, caught the fever. Clayton in Seattle offered the information that, with current technology, you could now burn CDs from videotapes at halftime and use them during the game.

    "They obviously had some value within the game," said Paolantonio, in Manhattan at the still-delayed news conference.

    Wingo succumbed as well, echoing Carter's Super Bowl theory: "We would be naive to think [Belichick] did not tape the Super Bowl."

    In the realm of speculation, however, it is an anchor's job to remain neutral, even at the expense of seeming naive. When the Goodell news conference finally, mercifully started, the first question posed was whether Walsh had said anything about the Patriots' use of tapes during games.

    "He was very specific that the tape remained in his possession the entire game," Goodell said, "and that they were not used during games."

    Never mind.

    Spikes is not a bust. He is however a liability in coverage, a big one. The PATS will try and get him some help in that area and continue to let him be a great run stopper.

    There may be some personal issue we will never hear about that is fueling this. The PATS could be also sending a message to Spikes to step up and fly straight (if it's some sort of locker room matter)

    Time will tell.

     

     


    False. He has been very good at improving himself in the coverage area. He improved from 2010, 2011 and into 2012.

    His INT on Flacco dropping into zone in the 2011 AFC Title game was well executed.

    Not a strength (run stopping and instincts are), but to say it's a :BIG liability" when he's a 3 down player most of the time is somewhat silly.

    He also has good instincts which is very evident when he's not on the field for our team. His presence returning at the end of 2011 was felt enormously and he had a fantastic postseason, even in the SB.

     

     



    Hilarious!! You have to go back two years to find him making a play in coverage...pathetic and typical kool aid response. Pita embarrassed him this post season - all that Spikes should of been doing this off season is working in Foxboro on his coverage and change of direction skills, yet he was 1400 miles away "working out" on his own. He's a two down linebacker playing three downs because all of our backers can't cover.
