    Schefter says no way Peppers goes to Pats

    The more this plays out, the more it seems that Peppers wants to come to NE but there is just no way NE could bring him here given the other priorities they have. Still say no way it happens and that Schefter is right on in his analysis of why he won't. The one caveat is that Peppers takes a significant pay cut for a ring, and it is doubtful he'd do that to the extent that the pats would need him to.

    It was a nice thought anyway. He would have looked good in a Pats uniform.

    Schefter also reported early on in the Cassel situation that the Pats were going to keep him and NOT trade him. He is generally on with his reports but he's also been wrong.

    Z,

    i understand what you are saying about Rogers being on this team and all

    but

    there is still one flaw in your arguement and that is the fact that Fork would not be as good as he is if he did the things that Rogers does

    when Fork came out the nock on him was that he would push the pocket too much and create too many wholes in the line of scrimmage for a team that takes a modest approach in terms of blitzing.......too much pressure would produce lanes for a delayed running game

    In his third year, last year when he played his absolute best he did a combination of the two... he would force the pocket and develop gaps in the O Line from the inside but only when the scheme was predicated on the gaps...... which is when we are using our ILB's in a BLAST up the middle...... Thing is we almost never blast inside out we would typically run a blast or fire switch off the end in an effort to free the DE's path to the quarter back

    if we had the type of pressure Rogers provided last year in Romeos modified one gap 3-4 we would leave running lanes open for miles... simply because of our two gap dicipline...especially against teams that can run an effective draw like the Colts, Eagles and Giants

    My definition of a NT in BB's de is the biggest, strongest, fastest NT who can run east to west 10 to 20 yards per play

    I do agree however that we WOULD have a better deffense in the event we Drafted a Ron Brace, signed Seymour to an extension and traded Fork

    I beleive the combination of Brace, Pepper and Seymour would be better than the combination of Wright, Fork and Peppers

    i could be wrong though

    It doesn't take a genius to figure that out. It was never even a remote possibility.

    I wouldn't want the Pats to keep going after Peppers not get to sign him and by the time they try to then get J Taylor he's gone somewhere else. Should the Pats get Taylor first and then go after Peppers? Is there enough room for both?

    you are right no NT is worth that kind of money. I hope you dont classify me as a "homer" just because i happen to think Wilfork is the best NT in the NFL. Its not me drinkig teh coolaide or whatever i am justa huge Wilfork fan and no matter what the stat sheet says i think Wilfork is the best NT in teh NFL. Now if we are talking pure DT then maybe as a DT Rodgers is the better DT but as far as 3-4 NT goes Wilfork is the best.

    If he wants to play for a winner why would Dallas be on that list? Maybe the law of averages says they eventually will play up to their paper potential and not choke?

    Has any NE based reporter said anything about the Pats going after Peppers based on their own info? I don't believe anything that comes out of ESPN and only a small percentage that comes from the NFL network. Both of them serve up rumors all the time to get viewers to watch their shows.

    Bottom line is I don't think we can afford him no matter who you shuffle or show the door to

    Eliminate Mankins and Wilfork and the the Pats go backward. These are the guys who came on as rooks; learned the system; produce consistently at a high level. Personally, I cannot see the Pats giving up this much. (Notice, I didn't even mention Seymour?) Of course, Green is another who as been indespensible.

    Of course there isn't man. You are a big Pat backer. But do you honestly think if Wilfork were on the Browns or on the Detroit Lions they would be better????

    And do you honestly think that if you replaced Wilfork with Rogers on the 2004 Pats it would have made a difference for the worse?

    That is crazy talk about NT's and championships. By that token you could say that Casey Hampton is better than Wilfork. He has won two championships at NT to Fork's one. He isn't. Wilfork is a better player.

    Just like Shaun Rogers is a bit better than Wilfork. The stats do not lie, nor does watching the games.

    Wilfork is awesome. But he isn't the best. That is all I am saying. And he certainly (which was the point of my OP) isn't worth $11 million dollars a season.

    No nose tackle is worth that . . . period.[/Quote]

    I agree for 11 a year you can get a couple of good NTs and some depth at other positions. Vince has been awesome for the Pats and hope he remains there but not sacrificing other spots.

    Pats are all about building their team through the draft so they can get "their guys" and coach them up. Asante was one of "their guys" they found him they tought him andthey lost him because they didnt think he was worth what he asked for. Wilfork and Mankins are in teh same boat, they are not some free agent pick ups they were drafted and are bill Belichick guys and we cant afford to lose anymore of these types of players or teh window will close on our championships.
