    I don't know?? I kind of disagree - don't get me wrong you make some points - but I just don't think the guy was all that good. He was nothing in coverage. He was big and could hit...he took on blockers like a defensive lineman could, but look at our run defense last year? What was more important, Spikes or a big guy like Vince? Too me it's easy, Vince. For all the talk of Spike's instincts, he chose the wrong many times as the runner ran on by.

    Hightower is supposed to replace Spikes and do it easliy if you listen to people around here. He is big, strong and seemingly a natural for the spot...we shall see. And we can alway draft a two down thumper in the 4-6 rounds.

    I guess Lazzie thinks the greatest GM of all-time just dropped the ball by letting the superstar Spikes get away, eh?

    What an unexpected pleasure! Welcome back Laz! You add that certain spice to a sometimes bland forum of querulous Patriots fans.

    I liked Spikes. He was a thumper and a defense needs those kinds of players to put the fear factor into opponenents heads.

    Think warm! Whatever happened to global warming?

    Revis=McCourty=Ty Law...i.e. CBs that will tackle, play the run, defend the pass well, lay the wood hard, force a fumble, make a critical play on the ball NO matter what...run or pass...when it's needed...A Complete Cornerback...The ANTI-Asante Samuel.   A solid TEAM playing Defender.  Underappreciated for years before they are ultimately given their rightful due...

    ...the same with Brandon Spikes.

    Not until THIS last year and end of last (12-13) could I say that Mayo was even a non-detriment in his pass-coverage capabilities.  The knock on Spikes HAS been that he was a 2 down Defender...yet so often he WAS kept in sub-packages (like NE's Big Nickel).  His coverage in NE';s 4-3 over (with Hightower often benefitted by being shifted way over on the Strongside LB spot), was Spikes having to cover almost the entire Middle and either the weakside when that line LB rushed, or aspects of both when Hightower shifted up in order to cover the quick TE RB out in the lower flank on that strongside of the field.  Regardless...for a bone-thumping ILB, Spikes WAS thought well enough to stay in on many sub-p's, cover wide swaths, and his PDs/INTs for this responsibility has never been bad @ ILB...

    Biggest problem for me...The "white Elephant"...?

    Spikes made players around him better and his hitting was feared by O's.  This sets a tempo for YOUR D and strikes a too often underlooked chord by modern NFL Fans, against the opposing O.  Spikes' arrival (@ SILB) signaled Mayo's bounceback year in '10 (@ WILB).  Spikes was a player instinctual, strong, and fearless enough to penetrate, disrupt, and alter an O's play-direction...Do NOT...EVER overlook this.  Spikes was a player instinctual, strong, fearless, and crazy enough to go head-head with an O-Lineman and a FB (or just another O-Lineman) on any given rushing play...taking out at least 1...or 2 blockers...or simply disrupting play-direction after bulling through 1...And THIS action of gearing up, not to make the tackle, but to occupy 2 Offensive Players, does this:  IT FREES UP A DEFENDER TO Make An Open Hit ON the Actual Ball-Carrier. 

    Some thread made a joke about "Good Riddance to Spikes".  1 Respondant quipped: "Yea we should all want Defensive Starters as dutiful as Tavon Wilson."  ...cutting and true.  Me and that respondant will go build our team around Spikes and complete CB types...The anti-Spikes crowd can go build dollhouses or something.  We'll come up with a type of D that hasn't gotten their NFL Teams anywhere lately...like a Seattle D...or a 49er D...orrr a Baltimore D.  I DO like dollhouses though...delicate latticework, attention to fragile detail.  I'm not kidding.  Those that KNOW me here, actually know that I'm really not.  Sometimes, like the porcelain set and stuff, or the stairway leg shaving style=AB-surd.  This isn't a coy analogy.  Even though it's becoming 1...  They can be pretty cool with that fine detail-work.  Don't be afraid to say it.  I'm not.  You can be if you want, but whatever=Your loss...not mine.  Like individual roof shingles...

    Anyway:  Spikes.  Don't overlook any player that sets the tempo, disrupts, shifts momentum in drive/gameplay in 1 Big Hit and/or at 1 critical junction.  It's odd that it sure seems, That A Great D needs a True Enforcer (or just an overwhelmingly high # of real bone-thumpers as your starters).  Loooove the Revis AND Browning signings...But I Can-NOT overlook the fact that we may have now the Best Secondary I've ever seen as a NE Fan (Revis/DMC/Browning) are 3 freakshows with tight Complete DB Game.  Run/Pass/Hitting/Instincts...Guys that play their game like BB likes it=No exploitable weaknesses (vs. 1 absurd strength-i.e. Asante Samuel...and several exploitable weaknesses-Run D, Route jumping, Hitting...team mentality). 

    Even If you (and unfairly) grossly underestimate Spikes as a mere 2 down guy and never anything else (BB didn't)- Brandon Spikes made HIS fellow D starters FAR more complete players when he was on the field.  Like the offseason...But again-I worry that we made our Secondary into a freakshow of talent finally...yet...And for no real poignant reason, Made a hole/have no exploitable defencies (see VW's issue w/ release & still needing a bookend DE next to Chandler Jones)- Up Front in our Run D, Middle of the Field.  We appeared to have this solid finally too...now?  Meh.  We've had a GOOD Run D, and a SOLID control of the interior of the field the past 2-3 years (vs the previous 3-6 before that). 

    Hi...I'm back.  I've risen.  I died.  I'm bored with white girl Americanisms.  Why in the event of a zombie apocalypse, Does Sarah Michelle Gellar types always seem to have the survivor skill set, and the jacked athletic, and agile male (usually he's black for some strange reason), Always die?  This isn't a sign-off..  I'm just writing it now...  Right here, not again though.  Maybe, If I feel like it.  Probably not, however.  Some people say that being neurotic is easy.  It ain't.  It takes artistry.  Not sure who those people are...some might though...

    Welcome back, Laz !! 

    Yes, we need a couple of players on defense to set the tone; especially after losing Spikes, one of the few who could walk the walk.

    Where the Pats really need some mean SOB's that strike fear in an opponent is across the front four. I am convinced that this will be a priority come draft day regardless of VW's status. BB will also choose an athletic hard-hitting LB to challenge Beauharnais & Davis.

    The only worry about letting Spikes go is having him injure somebody when we play the Bills.

    Problem with Football today, we got more people looking at numbers than whats inside the shirt. Look at a guy like Jack Lambert, NO WAY Middle Linebacker, more like a Safety than a Linebacker, but boy that guy had heart.
    Thats what numbers do, forget about the game, team, spirit.

    Most importantly BRAINS, I'll take smart Football players anyday of the week.
