    We may finally see some man to man aggressive defense for this 1st time since Samuel/Law or even more like the Clayborn/Haynes era..............

    Yeah, I really like this move!  Very solid pick up in a position of depth need.  Well done, BB!!

     

    I believe rkarp called this one.  Good call rkarp!

    No downside from my perspective.  Needed addition for depth; good coverage guy. All in all, good move.

    Looking at the LB depth chart with Beauharnis and Nink shows how bare the cup board is at LB. This is a nice vet added to the camp mix, that if he makes the team can help.

    I wish BB would stop focusing on rebuilding our great defense and spend more time on the real problem, replacing the lazy armed, insubordinate, playoff choke artist of a QB we have. 

    You would think the greatest coach/GM of all time would be able to see what Rusty sees

    Yup. Solid pickup. Badly needed depth and this guy has some qualities that will likely put him on the field in roles more than just a backup.

    For those who keep ragging on BB this is an example of why you are wrong. Anderson is not a fantasy football headline move. It is not a move that turns the D into a monster. What it is .. is a move that makes the D deeper and at the very same time more flexible in packages. He incrementally makes the D better. BB builds his 53 man roster each year one player at a time.

    Hoping that they some traction from either Armstead or Easley (or both), some traction from Kline, Stork, some traction from Dobson, Boyce and/or Thompkins. And franky I expect some reasonable help in each of those areas. If only we can get better play from TEs other than Gronk (and a healthy Gronk?)...

    This team looks better than last year's team at this point. Hoping for some health this year.

    Now we only need 1 solid TE and maybe a S to be ready to go !

    I love the New England Patriots, but i am not a fanatic. I want the team to win games the right way, playing good football. I demand the best from the players and the organization, because i support them the best way i can.          ISAAC ANDREU

    Agreed...we needed veteran LB depth, he's 30, not 33, so he should have something left in the tank, and we know he's a decent coverage LB which we desperately needed.

    Don't get too excited.  Good, solid depth/veteran backup move who may be able to help on 3rds in coverage.

    You have to think a Finley or Keller move is also on the way.

    This coming from the fool who screams from the top of his teenage girly lungs of the majesty that is Nink. Wow. What a joke. No wonder most here feel there is no bigger tool on the board.

    I like this signing. Badly needed depth.

    Question, though: if he led the Bears in tackles last year, why did he only get a minimum contract from the Pats? Seems like there is something there we're not privvy to.

    My take is, the Bears are in a cap hell and had to choose who they were holding on to.  Briggs is older and not necessarily as replaceable as the Bears try to hide their very, very old D which is about to combust.

    So, there is no point in blocking any younger LB in the mix to be part of a new core at the position.   Briggs has more ability to transition to a new base, so they decided to put the money to Briggs, with McLellin and Bostic being the newbies in there.

    Finally, Anderson is not a good LB vs the run, so his skills are limited. I am kind of chuckling at some here giddy over this signing where it's not a lock he makes the team.

    After that, he is truly a 4th LB or specialist LB, so at age 30, he can choose where he wants to go for a ring.

    It's here.

    Bears right now are about $5.2 million under the cap, while Pats are about $7.2 under.  Average team is right now $10.6 under. Jets are a whopping $21.9 million under.

    Comments like that?  I like the pick up here, you got a problem with that?  interest was shown with Anderson and discussed on here a while back, glad BB made the move. 

    Did you fall off the tractor head first or something?

    Wazzu keeps talking out of his kazoo.  He adds nothing here.  I never even noticed him until he just recently started going after each post I made.  He hasn't posted much here until recently, they must have closed down the Hello Kitty forum on here when they were making changes.  Now he has moved over here to the Pats forum an d is posting more here.
