    Some Straight Talk on Armond Armstead

        Pats' fans...lets not get too carried away with the signing of CFL player Armond Armstead: http://collegefootballmetrics.com/scouting/2013/DL_Armstead_Armond_RC.html. Still, it's a great sign that the Pats signed him immediately after their stinko performance in the AFC title game. Remember that, after losing the 2006 AFC title game to the Peytons, BB went ape-sh*t in the off-season, and built a 2007 juggernaut. Plus, it appears that the Pats got him at a reasonable price: http://www.patspulpit.com/2013/1/22/3905166/breaking-down-the-armond-armstead-signing-patriots

         Armstead has the size...but does he have the heart? As we all learned, much to our chagrin, from the AFC title game against the Ravens...heart is in somewhat of a short supply in New England.

         Still, it's nice to know that Indianapolis Colts fans were pleased to hear of Armstead's decision to sign with the Pats: http://www.stampedeblue.com/2013/1/22/3905496/cfl-defensive-lineman-armond-armstead-snubs-colts-signs-with-patriots

         LOL!!!

    You're right, but every fan base everywhere does the samething.  It's called hope and optimism.

    Too late, Tex.  I've already got him penciled in as the greatest D-Lineman ever to wear a Patriot jersey, if not the greatest player in NFL history.  Reggie White will have nothing on this guy.

    Who are these top of the leagues coaches (presumably they have never had a bad game), and what if they are happy where they are?  Let's have some names.

    :)    Seriously, I don't think anyone is counting on this guy to be a Day 1 starter and 10 year Pro Bowler.  We're simply excited about a high-upside signing for virtually nothing and hoping for him to make the squad and be a quality player.  Of course he could be a bust, any rookie could.  He has the skills to be a very good player if things work out, though.  Time will tell.  Until then, I'm glad we got him.

    Totally agree with your post above about signing a guy with lots of upside in this case.  

    And steal away - we need more light-hearted commentary in here.

    Why can't we appreciate that the Pats signed a guy with upside and leave it at that?  Fanboys: Armstead may not work out so let's not oversell him until he hits the field.  Negative guys: just because the fanboys think Armstead is the next Seymour doesn't mean the rest of us are too stupid to realise that he needs to come to camp and show he belongs here.

    These threads are increasingly populated by cheer leaders who think everything BB does is genius in action and glass-half-empty negatives who think the Pats organisation is on par with Arizona.  Will the more reasonable posters start adding more to the threads?  The rest is hard to take.

    I see him coining the phrase "30-30 Club" for NFL Defensive tackles.  30 sacks & 30 forced fumbles.  Annually.  Does this make me over-optimistic about this former CFL player?

    It's a big question whether Armstead has the heart or not.  That's why he went undrafted.

         Why don't you read my initial thread, and tell me where I've been overly negative? I applauded BB for the signing...but I caution those here who think that Armstead will be the second coming of Richard Seymour. Sounds middle of the road to me.

    We dont have the cap or Draft picks to do that again... NOR THE NEED... i believe that we are 2 or 3 key players away from a great team

    I tend to agree with you on that, auchhhhhh, perhaps "build" isn't the right word---although in 2007 but for AD and Sammy Morris the rest of the additions were receivers if i remember correctly as the core was pretty covered---but ya I feel like they are 2 to 3 players away, you're right about the picks but my understanding (thanks PatEng) is that there is more than adequate cap space THIS year. It will be intersting to see if BB targets a couple of the big names

    There's more cap space because the Pats have a lot of guys hitting the market.

    Funny article by the Colts writer.  The guy is a great fan of his team.

    Armstead is not the next sure thing but he does represent a messiah.  Is he the one?  Can he get us the pass rush we need?  Lots of promise there.  A lot to work with.

    In response to wmasschilly's comment:

    my question Tex, is do you think BB is going to go ape sh** again and build another juggernaught?



         Yes, I do. BB is likely as frustrated and angry about the way the Pats' 2012 season ended as the rest of us. So...I expect some big changes. But, unlike in 2007, where BB went crazy adding offensive weapons for Tom Brady, in this off-season, he'll focus on defense. The signings of CFL products Armond Armstead and OLB Vega are just a start.

         The next order of business is to determine what he's going to do with his own key free agents...RT Sebastien Vollmer, and WRs Wes Welker and Julian Edelman. Whether he resigns C-Bass or not depends on what the prognosis is on Vollmer's back. His back injury has limited his effectiveness, and his playing time. This is a really tough call...because when Vollmer is healthy, he's one of the best RTs in the game. If he's healthy, he'll be resigned. If not, the Pats will be in the market for a replacement. 

         There's no way that the Pats will franchise Wes Welker, and pay him over $11mil. for the 2013 season. They'll either sign him to a reasonable 2-3 year deal, or send him packing. My guess is that a deal will be reached. At this stage of Welker's career, does it really make sense for him to go elsewhere, for a few million more? He and Brady are close friends. Welker stays, at, say, a 3 year, $20mil. deal, of which $12mil. is guaranteed. 

         Due to his upside, the younger Julian Edelman will be a more attractive free agent target than Welker. Edelman is also more likely to go to a bad team that pays, than Welker.

         Look for BB to add a safety through free agency...either Ed Reed or Dashon Golston, if they become available. Say goodbye to Patrick Chung...who fell behind Steve Gregory on the depth chart.
