    Re: My thoughts, exactly

    One of my favorite things about Belichick and the Patriots organization is that they talk to the media as little as possible. They couldn't care less what the idiot talking heads are saying or writing and I love that about them. I thought they issued a sincere statement showing their sorrow and condolences to the victims family, cut ties with the problem, and now they are focused on the upcoming training camp. if you are expecting another statement from them regarding Aaron Hernandez then you will be waiting an awful long time. Go Pats!

    Who did that guy on the Browns murder again?

     



    He was charged with ATTEMPTED MURDER. A felony.  When did the media demand the Browns make more than a statement?

     

    Have the Browns even made a statement and cut the player?

    EDIT: Yes, he was released.  Have we gotten enough from the Browns and why oh why they signed a future murderer?  How come the Browns did not know one of their players was capable of such things??!!

     

     

     

     



    Well the guy didn't murder anyone, so I guess that's better than say...murdering three. We just gave 5 million to a guy that shot at his sister's boyfriend two years ago...that's attempted murder, right? I mean Talib wasn't trying to just get his attention. We didn't cut Talib, in fact we traded for him and then gave him 5 million. And how about the guy that is going to jail for punching a cop in the face? Oh yeah, Dennard is now considered our savior at corner...wonder if they'll cut him? 

     

     

     




    Sure, sure. Only our team has questionable character people on it.  You're one of the more intelligent people I've seen on a messageboard. lmao

    Orlanda Cepeda got manslaughter for trying to murder someone with a baseball bat. He's in the MLB HOF.  You act like only the Pats have questionable character guys and then act all horrified that Jon Kraft can;t have 100% choir boys in here because he preaches how great his leadership is. What a crock.

    If you don't like the Krafts, BB, etc, please find a new team to root for, Mr Phony. Meanwhile, Brady knocks up some gal and runs off and you don't say a word about principle on that. Hmm.

    You constantly talk out of both sides of your mouth. The NBA and NFL are littered with questionable people like this. LOADED.  If you didn't take some risks you're going to be walking away from 50% of the opportunities.

     

    There have been 30 arrests since February in the NFL, more than one for murder.

    Good job comparing a sklrmish outside a bar to murder, too. That's just really intelligent.




    ^^Reads like it was written by dumbo.

    We gave 41 million to Dexter Morgan...we gave 5 million and a third round pick for a thug corner who shot at someone. We drafted a slow linebacker in the second round who has his own porn video online. We have a corner from Nebraska that punched a cop in the face and will be doing jail time next year. I can guarantee you that Kraft is not enjoying the recent work of the "best GM ever". Guarantee.

    You really can't be this stupid, can you? You think that Kraft is enjoying this recent run of embarrassment? You think that guys like Talib, Spikes and Dennard are going to be on this team after next season? If you don't think Kraft is asking some very pointed and critical questions regarding our "best GM ever's" ability to acquire players, you are karazzzzy. I mean you are way past the point of lacking milk at birth here rusty...way beyond a vitamin D deficiency. Let me guess, you bought your weed off Hernandez and now you're going through withdrawals??

    To borrow one from Boomer "no one circles wagons like the New England Patriots".   The writer says the team "preaches righteousness".   I don't think the Pats preach at all.  They certainly refrain from telling other people what to do.

    The Pats will say what they always say.  Very little.

    Re: My thoughts, exactly

    No idea who Dexter Morgan is? But anyway, the Talib deal is, allegedly (and as I recall), that his sister called him because her BF slapped her around and he showed up with a gun, or his mother had the gun and he got a hold of it (I don't recall the details), and pistol-whipped the guy. So, it was a fit of rage type of deal that I presume Kraft was aware of and signed off on.

    He also assaulted a cab driver, hit LT Donald Penn with a helmet and loudly cussed out his head coach in a crowded hotel lobby. He's a punk, at least he has been. He clearly has a serious temper and not much of a filter. I personally didn't care for the trade for these reasons, but by all accounts he's been fine in Foxboro.

    All that said, this type of stuff is child's play compared to the wannabe Tony Montana, AH. That's evil, not anger.

    While we're at it here, your newest ex-Buc Mr. Blount is no angel himself. Don't like that acquisition either.

    I heard this guy is impressing at Pats Camp.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HDp6kcoxAUE

     



    Kenbrell Thompkins is an interesting prospect, that Lane Kiffen wanted him to come to Tennessee which seems to be a factory for #1 draft pick WR's piques my interest.  He took a long circuitous route to the NFL, was productive in Cincinnati when he got there, had decent (4.4) speed, good agility drills, decent size, good hands and a solid vertical.  He's not being lumped in with Dobson and Boyce as potential stars but maybe he should be... 

     



    Good info.  I wasn't sure what to think of his combine results.

    STRENGTHS - Gets moving quickly at the snap of the ball and is able to accelerate fast to close cushion when cornerback lines up off the LOS. Not only does he get to full speed fast, but he has the playing speed to get behind the defense and create deep separation. He does a good job of selling fakes to turn cornerback and is able to get open because of them. When he feels he has to break off a route he shows the athleticism, especially agility and feet, to get turned around with head and hands in right spot to catch pass. When he tucks the ball away cleanly he is quick getting started up the field after the catch, runs strong and aggressively with the ball which helps him to run through arm/grab tackles and hits to gain yards after contact. When he maintains focus he shows good hands and combined with his body control and coordination has shown the ability to adjust and catch off-target passes. Highly competitive, Thompkins gets after defender quickly on blocks, stays over feet and blocks man out of the play consistently. .

    WEAKNESSES - Despite showing the ability to break off route to adjust to quick hitting passes and to turn cornerback around with good fakes, Thompkins needs to improve his route running. His footwork running routes needs work - He does not get in and out of cuts quickly, which hinders his ability to create separation consistently. Additionally, for a player who makes highlight catches seem easy, he seems to lose focus at times which leads to him dropping passes he should easily catch. For a receiver with good playing strength and athleticism, it is surprising how he struggles fighting through a cornerback's jam to release quickly vs press coverage.

    SUMMARY - After a strong week at the Texas Versus the Nation Game, I expected more from Thompkins when I evaluated the film. However, he is much more of an inconsistent player than a polished, consistent one ready to contribute immediately in the NFL. There is little doubt from what I have seen that he has the talent to be a productive starting receiver in the NFL, but if he does not greatly improve his consistency catching the ball and run much sharper routes then he will have a hard time making an NFL roster. Overall, I think Thompkins will be a late round pick because of his physical talent and potential, but he is definitely a developmental prospect who may be best off spending a season on a practice squad to improve his route running and hopefully to get him to maintain focus/concentration so that he can catch the ball more consistently.

    Insofar as I feel like I've already said all I'm going to say about this whole murder thing, I think it's worth pointing out -- especially living out of market as I do -- that all of this "Patriot Way" stuff and the perceived arrogance of the organization is not something that comes out of Foxboro . . .  it's something that is laid at the Pats' doorstep by hacks (and players) in other markets who look at New England's relative success this century and need to find ways to denigrate it to satisfy their own egos.

    I guess the easiest way to describe it is as jealousy. Somebody somewhere else in the thread mentioned Red Sox fans' attitude as regards the seemingly perpetual greatness of the Yankees. Sure, we hate them and consider them "arrogant" and wouldn't ever want to be like them and yet, so many of us don't seem to see the irony -- as is so often the case (which is what makes irony so funny) --  of other people applying the same double-standard from afar to the team for which we root.

    They're going to drag your team through the mud any chance they get because  it assuages the desperation of rooting for some team, somewhere, that almost never competes near the top and offers little in the way of hope.

    Simple human nature, boys and girls.

    For further illumination on this point, I refer you to a particular fox and some very high grapes.

    I am still missing the point of the Pats, the NFL and Kraft specifically not saying anything is the right thing to do? To think Wilbur's article doesn't hit home with the moral majority is close minded. Go talk to a non football fan who sees what is happening in the NFL on CNN and ask them what they think about the thuggery in the NFL. Go talk to a corporate owner of a block of season tickets or a lux box and ask them if they are happy with the situation. 

    We are working in a segment about the NFL and criminal activity, and make sure you listen to what Kraft says on camera regarding Hern and players in general that break the law. It sounds like changes are ging to happen in Foxboro and it sounds like Kraft is very insistent that changes in the NFL are also underway...

    I am very cognizant that there is a percent of the general public that simply doesn't care. As long as the Pats win, and they wiped their hands of Hern after the fact, all is well. I even pointed out he re on BDC regarding the moron who is comparing the Ravens do nothingness to the Pats cutting Hern. But is the segment that simply doesn't care, not aware that there is a large part of the population, fan base and sponsorship that cares very much?



    You either need to come down off your high horse or just find another team to follow if you don't like how the Patriots are handling this.  Maybe another sport altogether.

    This way, you will hopefully go to another forum to whine.

    They did release a statement, then they did the jersey exchange. What else are they supposed to do/say? There's also the issue of liability, which is absolutely very real.

    If you're waiting on a big press conference, or somebody crying on camera or something along those lines, I wouldn't hold my breath.

    You are the most annoying person on earth. You make a nagging wife seem like a godsend. You make a pestering child seem like an angel. You make chronic pain seem like a blessing. You make cracked and festering blisters seem like a gentle caress. You make dog dung all over the front yard seem like a splendid garden. You make a cat fight at 3am seem like the harping of angels.  If annoying were a crime, you'd get a life sentence.

    You won't see anything from the Pats on this, either at a press conference or in a written release nor, in my opinion, should you.  The Pats owe no one an explanation and I really couldn't care less if every NFL commentator talking (as opposed to thinking) head screams for one on a daily basis.
