    You said you were done with AH threads.

    Oh, I see, you're providing a public service by passing on King's column.  Got it.

    3. Belichick had better give the Urban Meyer guys a harder look in the future. He’s had either trouble of some kind or abject disappointment with Florida picks Hernandez, Chad Jackson, Jermaine Cunningham, Brandon Spikes and Jeff Demps.

     




    I'm not disappointed with the Spikes pick at all, Demps was a nothing pick that just wanted to run track (not BB's fault), Cunningham is here, and still has a shot.

    Certainly disappointed in how AH turned out to be a thug, but that is far from BB's fault.

    The only real bad pick was Jackson.

    Re: MMQB

    Sorry but some of this in hindsight again.

    Where were all the media people with bad PR on Hernandez before this happened? If there was that much bad stuff happening around AH why has no reporter ever picked up on it. Isn't it there job to "uncover" stories and not just report on stories happening now?

    I am not saying that there is nothing for Pats to learn from this. I think there is a lot. But learning usually involves failing. 

    When Thomas Edison was interviewed by a young reporter who boldly asked Mr. Edison if he felt like a failure and if he thought he should just give up by now. Perplexed, Edison replied, "Young man, why would I feel like a failure? And why would I ever give up? I now know definitively over 9,000 ways that an electric light bulb will not work. Success is almost in my grasp." And shortly after that, and over 10,000 attempts, Edison invented the light bulb.

    So the real story and question is not what the Pats did in the past, it is what will change in the future and what will they learn from this. Now when a writer write this and has a good insight to gain, let everyone know. Because that is the true story for the Pats. 

    The Pats cut ties with AH and all that is left is learning from this bad experience. If they learn something maybe they will make better decisions in the future. We will have to wait and see.

    I want camp to start and see how this team moves forward. I believe in next man up and adapt and overcome. That has been the Pats strengths as they rebuild. Let's see it in action again and if it works then the Pats maybe better off in the long run, without AH.


    --- " I am a happy fan, a proud fan and I want us to win every game 28-0 but as long as we win, the team is united and has a sense of respect to the community and the game I will be a patriots fan and damn proud of it." ---- signed a pats fan from middle earth

    All I really had to read at the beginning of the this thread were the two words Peter King.  Next topic?

    Re: MMQB

    I guess I find King's statements less bothersome than some of the other media clowns calling for some soul baring statement from Belichick. Not sure how they add much to the discussion frankly. 

    Kraft already said they're going to review the screening process, so fine, they'll do that. I'm sure BB won't want a repeat of this offseason ever again.

    Pioli isn't coming back and who knows what would have happened had he stayed. But fine, I guess it's an interesting point to consider. Then I remember that he signed Jovan Belcher...nobody's perfect, but I don't remember the media calling for an investigation into how that happened? In fact, didn't I read that his picture (or his uni?) was displayed in their locker room after he killed a woman in cold blood?

    As for the Florida players, it's kind of a mixed bag. Hernandez was great as a player, Spikes has been fine, Cunningham is still on the team. Demps was a UDFA, so no harm there and they managed to trade him for someone that might help. Jackson was a bum.

    What? This is impossible. Rusty and others have admonished me thoroughly when I have claimed Spikes is nothing special whatsoever.

    Of course you're not disappointed with the Spikes pick. Just as you probably weren't with the Butler, Chung and Meriweather picks.

    Kool-aide soothes all misgivings about what a player actually does in the field. Then when BB lets them walk after the rookie contract, you can just forget you ever backed them up.

    (And you have GOT to be completely kidding us about wasting a 2nd rounder on Cunningham. Even kool-aide isn't powerful enough to cause that kind of delusion.)

    2. Since Scott Pioli left the organization in 2009, Belichick doesn’t have anyone to argue him off troubled players. Not that Pioli won all the time. “But,” someone with knowledge of the Patriots front office told me, “there’s no one there with Scott’s balls anymore.



    As I have said for years now, BB has surrounded himself with yes men.

    It's a burden to be right so often ;).

    It probably wouldn't be a bad idea to have somebody around who could say, "Ahhh, hey Bill... that's a really stupid f'n idea".

    So now you are telling me what I "Probably" thought? Perhaps you should have a clue before you post?

    OH NO YOU DI'INT!  Didn't you hear?  Making accurate observations about one's persona will immediately cast you into the Rusty suspect pool.  

    May God be with you, tanbass...
