    Re: Siliga


    Eng, You can't really call my logic off, as I am just stating that the system has worked.  We have the most wins in the LG in BBs time as team builder. I pointed out the steelers, ravens, and gints all being former SB winners with the same GM, the same QB and the same coach and they are not even in the playoffs.  2 of them also have HOF QBs like we do. That isnt logic, ot is a fsct.

    So for the 3 or 4 guys on this forum who say Brady and cosching are the only reasons we have been so dominate, I say good one. We have had top 5 defenses, top 5 offenses, top 3 passing, top 3 rushing, at all different times in BB's control. You cant have a talented enough team to go to super bowls every other year but then not have any talent because we lost 2 SB's in the last 2 minutes. Backwards thinking. It just doesn't make sense.

    And speaking of flawed logic, how can you sit here and possibly criticize the amount of probowlers we have had during BB's reign( which I would guess is the most in the entire nfl) when it is probably as good as it gets. Thats like saying the Rothschild family was the richest family in the world but they could have made more money so they really didn't do too well!!!

    Re: Siliga

    Siliga did leave the game hurt though, didn't he?

    At any rate, for two short weeks he's looked good. Three sacks is nothing to snuff at either. I think he and Jones are your best bet inside. 

    Re: Nink ... he is a complementary rusher. He holds his side down, but doesn't get the flashy stats. Still over the last two seasons he's average 3 FF and 8 sacks. Not bad.

    Bringing in Carter as a specialist is a good idea ... and I wonder if he had a back room deal set in place before the season with BB. 

    At any rate ... Siliga has looked better than anyone since VW went down, and I hope he is enough.

    He's gonna have to be! Put it this way, I had given up most hope(never all hope!) Until Siliga came up and drastically improved the run defense, and pass rush. Our D was swiss cheese for a few weeks.

    Siliga only sat out a couple plays after he got hurt. Seems to be improving every week. NE needs someone who can push the pocket back to the QBs face.

    You don't think Brady had a little to do with having a top end run game (when D's concentrated on stopping him), and a top end passing game? For the D I agree when we actually spent resources to make it that way. Seymour, Wilfork, Harrison, Washington, Cox all didn't come as value they came from spending resources and all were major players in making it a top 5 D. Where has the D been since 08' when value at CB and along the line were taken instead of spending resources?

    btw you failed logic was that value was the only way to go and it works so don't change it while BB himself has changing that logic from time to time essentially saying he was wrong at those times but you don't acknowledge his shifts from value after years in which the value system failed.

    Please point out where I said that. What I said is you don't find probowlers as low cost FAs or UDFA's and that the probowlers we did have came from early round draft picks and spending resources aquiring them. I also said it's better to spend a little extra resources to get higher level talent (like probowlers) instead of getting 10 guys and hoping one can be a starter. So where is the flaw in my logic as it turns out the vast majority of our probowlers can from spending that little extra or with higher draft picks.

    he looked pretty good yesterdayGuess he beat Vellano out for the starting job



    At least Vellano plays some snaps. What happened to Soap? He went from " guy will be a beast on running downs" to inactive in the span of 4 games??




    I was thinking the same thing-we traded for Soapiaga ?  from the Eagles and I never see him on the field-what gives-really thought the guy would be a fixture over the center?



    Why would a beast be available? I am glad some beef was available with experience. Christ, people are dumb. Sopoaga was nothing more than a 3-4 and 4-3 player who was complementary in SF last year.

    Educate yourself on the player before having wild expectations.




    No problem dead--I will take a crash course on all players in the NFL and become profficient in all things NFL-wow lighten up dude? BB traded for the guy I think he thought they could use him somewhere-I'm glad you are an expert on all NFL players I feel better now -thanks!!




    No need to take a crash course on NFL players. Siliga was released by Seattle on 10/4 and out of football until 10/23 when the Pats signed him to their practice squad.

    On 10/29 the Pats acquired Sopoaga from the Eagles and began giving him reps at DT. He was so ineffective over the course of these games that the Pats deactivated him for the last 4 games and inserted Siliga in his place.

    Siliga has made big strides in his last few games and his prescence has seemed to improve not only the DL but the play of the linebackers.

    Hopefully he keeps playing at this level. Bottom line IMO is that I don't think the NE coaches could have foreseen this or else they wouldn't have made the trade for Sop.

    I think at one time you and BB were thinking the same way concerning Sop. Sometimes stuff happens in mysterious ways in the NFL.

    Maybe do some research on players you don't know about first? Yes, I happen to watch a lot of NFL and have a good feel for other players and their skill sets, yes.




    Sounds like we are all lucky to have ya here--go get em tiger!

    Siliga was clearly an excellent signing.  He's no Big Vince but who is?   He's been very effective and really slowed the bleeding on the run D.
