[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Meriweather to Bears : I do. What is your opinion of Leigh Bodden or the concepts of continuity and depth on defense, as compared to no Leigh Bodden in 2010, rookies everywhere, and limited depth come December on the D Line? I put a lot of stock into what areas were addressed as weaknesses on the team and aspects like continuity, quality additions and depth. As the goober John Clayton, a notorious Pats hater said in ESPN's 2011 preview, "NE is loaded". Yup. If you weren't sold on the new parts in preseason (Ridley, Price, Carter, Fletcher, a taste of Haynesworth and Ellis, etc), I am sure what to tell you.

We haven't seen enough of Bodden this year to make a proper assessment, King.
When he said the Pats were loaded, it was during the 80 plus in camp. Bodden needs to catch up, whoever is the new safety needs to catch up, Das, needs to catch up, Ocho needs to catch up. Many snaps missed because of OTA's and no 2 a days. I scouted football for 28 years in the Northeast for Division I teams, and I tell you, although Meriweather seemed bad at times, he knew the system. This will hurt him. Secondaries are hard to predict, please tell me, King who's the commuicator in the secondary now that Meriweather is gone? we know who is up front, mayo.
