    Maybe TexPat's thread deserves a bump.



         Wish it didn't. It must be killing Tom Brady, who, at age 36, is being asked to work with such a motley crew of skill players. Meanwhile, he must watch as the 37 year old Peyton Manning gets to operate with first rate, state of the art weaponry in a legacy building season...in which it appears that Manning will shatter all of Tom's 2007 passing records. 

         Deep down, Tom must feel like a general who is being asked to conduct an air war with WW II era aircraft.

    At this point Hoom is the only real tight end on the team.  Second is James Develin, the fullback, who barely counts as an H-back type of tight end.  Gronk is apparently not playing -- he has no arm bone.  Maybe an Iron Man exoskeleton around his arm would help.  The appropriately named Mulligan is just somebody that BB took.  Ballard?  Still limping somewhere else.  Hernandez?  Joined the circus in Fall River.

    Suds may have been a risk because he had a bad shoulder and shoulder guys are always bad risks  BB took a minimal risk as Suds was a UFA.  Suds blossomed.  Suds made the team.  Just speculation, but maybe Suds got a re-torn labrum and couldn't do what he used to do anymore.  That fumble was the breaking point.  The Jets picked him up for intelligence on the Pats, if for nothing else.

    Oct 29 at 4PM is the trading deadline. Let's see who the Pats go after. I think Jared Cook would be a nice addition to the Pats. He plays for St. Louis. he would be factor on the Pats. I also like Escobar on the Cowboys. He may be another Julius Thomas if given the chace. But he plays behind Witten. I am sure there are some others available.

    Just realize that playoff football is a whole other animal, and this Patriot's defense would never give up 48 points to the Cowboys.  

    Yes, right now the Bronco's offense is substantially better than the Patriots, the reverse could said about the defenses, the difference is the Pat's offense can improve whereas the Bronco's defense is what it is... they stink.

    Defense win championships and the Patriot's offense will continue to improve, they don't hand out rings in October, nor to the #1 rated offense.
