    Pats waive Flecther!!!!

    This is bad.  No way he makes it thru waviers.  The Giants will take him for sure because of the TE we took from them.

    Good thing you added 3 exclamation points for this predictable move by BB.  Good god. Our fans are so lame here. This team is loaded.  The key is to field the best team for 2012, not cater to back ups. Everyone likes Fletcher, but they also very capable reserves they like such as Carpenter and Tarpinian.    Hopefully, he does clear, but it;s not the end of the world and worthy of 3 exclamation points. He would have counted on the roster and spots are at a premium.

    First off dont say "our" fans.  I am a fan of the Pats, not you.  You have nothing to do with the Pats.

    The team is loaded then you name Carpernter and Tarpinian.  One is a guy that can't stick on a team and the other is a career backup.  I wouldnt be to happy with either of them in for too long.

    Re: Pats waive Flecther!!!!

    He's done for the season and they needed to put him on waivers before he can make it to the IR. I don't think any team will take him considering he tore his ACL, he's just a back up ILB, and we are already into preseason. 

    The Giants big mistake is Ballard has starting cpability and they tried to sneak him through before preseason even started with rosters not completely full. Don't forget Ballard has to count against the 90man roster and I'm not sure but he might have to be on the 53man on day 1 before he can be moved to IR (don't quote me on that though because I'm not completely sure of the IR rules with the new CBA)

    I think he will be safe.  Timing is everything, while all teams are worrying about cutting down to the 53 man roster, nobody is going to look to add a BU LB with a torn ACL.

    BB knows the risks here and I think he is comfortable with this move.  Time to roll the dice!!!

    Agree but I think he would be a starter on alot of other teams not just a backup.  Is a guy you think can be a starter for you next year worth a spot this year?

    I think they have to be counted on the 90 man roster but after the 75 man roster cut, they can be IR'd and not count against the 53.

    Let me get this right.  They grab a 4th TE from the Giants to put on IR for the year, but dump one of their own that gets hurt during a patsie game?  Stay classy Foxboro!
    Posted by JetMangione


    They didnt dump him.  As other posters have said you have to put the guy on waivers before you can but him on IR for the year.

    LOL!! Rexxy resorting to this just shows his desperation in trying to make something work there.  What a joke!  Sanchez as well as Tebow both looked like jokes in their first preseason game, their O line looked horrible and they have no receivers or RB's.  Man, it would really suck being a jets fan.

    In Response to Re: Pats waive Flecther!!!! : Maybe.  It's obviously effective and used in the right proportion will give some teams fits with the D's built for the extensive use of the spread offenses.  Tebow had 90 yards against one team last year. 
    Posted by JetMangione


    Glad to hear that you think that the Jets will win the SB, because Tebow had a good game against the Patriots.......Wait!  What will happen with Sanchez when they play the Patriots twice?

    In denial about the defensive improvements the Patriots have had since last season?

    In Response to Re: Pats waive Flecther!!!! : Would you say that he's "resorting" more this year or in 2009 & 2010 when they ran the WC more than any NFL team.The absolute truth is, if Tebow was on the patsies, you would all be screaming like little school girls watching Justin Bieber and predicting how he would lead the NFL in rushing. BB loves versatile players. I'm shocked that McD didn't beg him enough to give up a second rounder for him. 
    Posted by JetMangione


    I didn't watch the whole thing but the couple of times I did see Tebow, he was running the wrong way.
    Also, don't make me bring out my broom.  You know the Pats swept tebow and sanchez last year, right?

    In Response to Re: Pats waive Flecther!!!! : Of course not.  I see the last ranked patsie D easily jumping up to a top 10 D.  I absolutely believe that McCourty, regressing in a huge way in his second year, to be all world this year.  I predict that BB's 2nd round pick that was not even expected to be drafted, to have a year as good as any rookie ever has while Rasi transforms himself from a player that has been hurt every year he's played football, including his NFL rookie year, to start 16 games and be a force to be reckoned with. Finally, I see no problem with a couple of rookies replacing the 20 sacks that are missing from Carter and Anderson. Just like teams going from bottom of the league to tops, 10 sack rookies happen all the time. Next.

    Glad you have such confidence in the Patriots D!   Finally decided you are tired of rooting for such a dissapointing franchise?

    Fact is Tebow beat the jets last year, hahaha nice defense!  Tebow couldn't beat the Patriots, Hahahahaha!  Hows our Defense!!

    I like Tebow but it's silly to do what the Jets are doing.  Just admit that Sanchez sucks and put Tebow as the starting QB and run an offense around him like John Fox and the Bronco's did last year.  This whole Wild Cat, use Tebow as punt protector, blah, blah, blah is all a joke.  The Jets are the laughing stock of the NFL.  Turn on sports center, turn on NFL network, look at the football sites on the interents, they are all making fun of your team!!!  The Jets are a j-o-k-e-!

    Rex has gone backwards, he is getting worse instead of getting better.  He isn't head coach capable, he is a definsive guy, let him stick to one aspect of the game not try and run a whole team.

    it had been reported that if they waited till the 75 man cutdown, he would not have to clear waivers before being ired. therefore seems a surprising move

    Unless they have a pressing need to free the roster spot because of the three games in quick succession

    True and I'm a bit surprised by this - not shocked - just a tad bit surprised. I guess they think he's probably not going to get picked up, but man how do you feel if you're Fletcher right now.

    In Response to Re: Pats waive Flecther!!!! : As a starter, yes. Carpenter was a bust pick. But as a back up with experience, he's a good depth move, obviously. You wouldn't know about depth, though. You would know about busts, however. lmao
    Posted by CliffordWasHere


    i think the term bust is all relative.  A player can be considered a bust for one team meaning he was selected for a system which doesnt suit to his strengths and thus doesn't perform well.  In another system that same player can flourish.  see maybin, tate, welker, carter, anderson....
