In response to Quagmire3's comment:
folks I dont know what the love affair is with Ballard!! Please go back and look at film when he played, he is an average to below average tight end. Would rather have Hoo-man than Ballard.
I Have to somewhat agree with this outside of the hoo-man comment because I didnt see enough of him last year. One game he made a reception to start the game and I thought he was hernandez but he did NOTHING after that. In the playoffs,he came in and did nothing. So, I wouldnt be too excited about either. I think fans WANT Ballard to be a start because they can say na nana naaaa, We took Ballard from the Giants and maybe that makes them feel better about losing the SB, but not me. Another thing some fans here do much is overate players based on what they did to THIS Secondary. IN week 11, 2 years ago, he made a few big grabs, most notably the one on Chung after he got hurt,. and a star was Born!!!! lOl,. Besides being a Big TE, the comparisons to Gronk end there. He is just a big TE who can block and catch some balls. Nothing special. Our secondary makes everyone look good and people need to remember that. Right now we have a billion into our top 2 TEs and have Fells and Hooman so Im not thinking about Ballard. Im more concerned if Ras I is gonna play next year. Why are people excited about 4 TE sets?!?! lol
well OG i have to respond to this well thought out/written post like this:
one, Ballard is a solid TE, big, tough, can block, pretty good hands-not a star or anyone special in ur offense but solid
two, boy are u asking for it from Rusty with this post! LOL....criticizing the pats D and a player picked up by Bellichick in the same post is just about a mortal sin to ol Russ-duck, man-quick!
