    Re: RB Blount takes big pay cut

    Rhodes, Trufant, and any player BB wanted or targeted was gone by #29 so he traded down. No one knows if he tried to trade up (I doubt it) so he drafted a CB he could use in the nickel or dime (Ryan) with a look down the road to perhaps grooming him as Talib's replacement when he bolts for more money. Regardless of what anyone thinks about Ryan (who has played no NFL games much like Trufant, Rhodes or Milliner). The Pats have two starting CBs and a decent CB in Arrington. Now ask yourself how many starting RBs Pittsburgh has after losing Mendenhall and drafting Bell. One (or its Jonathan Dwyer) and he's a rookie starter in the bruising AFC North. And still the Steelers haven't addressed all issues with their O Line.

    Blount gets added to the Pats current stable of backs. To me Vereen performs the Woodhead role, Ridley is primary back with Bolden and Blount battling for change of pace back and Washington as KR with RB possibilities if there is an injury. Demps basically shot himself in the foot by indicating he wanted to focus on his track career. If you don't want to focus on your NFL career, fine, we'll find somebody who will focus more on his NFL career.

    To me Rusty, Ballard (if healthy) is basically a light tackle; meaning great at run-blocking or pass protection. Do people realize that the Pats got a 26 yr old former 1000 yrd rusher for next to nothing? Agree on the power formation. Again everyone has to be healthy; my only concern is that Blount runs a little to upright at times and has fumbled a little too much.....again a minor concern when you have good stable of backs. IMHO Washington killed the Pats on returns more than a few times and this means we don't have to worry about the Pats starting free safety(McCourty) getting murdered on returns. None of the backs has to worry about getting 25-30 carries per game. Glad Ridley add the weight, but want to make sure the concussion(*sic) is over. If Chandler puts on 10-15 lbs. and learns the swim move look out rest of AFC East. New slogan: feed Legarette the carrot !
