I dont think you can state this with confidence because you dont know. Yes he was cut from the team, but do you really call playing in 2 games in 2 years an oppourtunity?
We dont know if the Pats were planning on bringing him back and just got caught with their pants down. We needed a center and had to drop someone. I doubt they would just give up on him after endorsing him just weeks earlier.
In any event, even if they did give up on him, do you think he was given a chance? I dont buy the practice stuff because Perillo said he looked great in practices and my eyes said the same from what I saw in camp. Maybe he didnt have that rapport w/Brady, but he had no chance here.
How can you improve if you dont see the field? Some guys play better in games than practice. This guy got ONE SHOT this year. he went deep, beat his man, and Brady was flushed out the pocket and threw a bad ball. The Db broke it up..The End. This was Price's only oppty this year and last year in the finale he did well.
Like I said, thats not an oppt'y, thats a very short tryout.
Guys on offense get ONE Shot, while we got all kind of bums running around in the secondary with no risk of losing a job?!?!
Thats a problem!
Noone wants to admit that Brady has a short leash with Wr's. As much as he praised Ocho, what is he doing? He left him out the dry the minute they bought back High Top Underwood. He goes to Underwood and gets picked off and was about to ruin his confidence and O'bie stepped in to stop it.
I think its pretty obvious. Brady demands a ton and is a prima dona when it comes to working w/these guys. You mess up , you are done.
This, IMO is why Ocho is never on the field, yet when they need a 1st down, in comes Ocho and Boom! 1st down, now back to bench cuz Brady doesnt like to throw to you.
Look at how sparingly Hernandez has been used this year after a couple of early drops. How about running backs? How many passes they caught?
You really think Faulk is better than Ridley or Vareen? Or is it that Brady is just trying to live in the past and wants faulk out there because he is sooooo clutch on that 2 yard out.....lol - Brady needs to get over Branch and Faulk. Both look to be over the hill and play much more then they should.
My eyes work very well, please dont tell me these guys just cant play. Standards need to be lowered.
