In response to mthurl's comment:
I like the young guys we added, but I'm a little concerned with two of our guys going forward...Edelman and Thompkins. I think Edelman has improved tremendously, but he still is double clutching balls or just flat out dropping them...an improvement? Yes, but I'm starting to think if this guy ends up having to catch a game winning catch, he's going to drop it. I like Thompkin's potential, but this guy has bobbled every catch he's made...how's that going to shake out when it gets cold? I just don't think he's going to be able to come through for us this year...next? Yeah, but he needs a lot of work this year.
I just think the building of the roster has been poor this offseason and others, and this time Brady may not be able to save us. I still can't believe they signed Adrian Wilson. What was even more puzzling is that they signed a wide receiver who's nick name was molasses...think about that...you tried putting a wide receiver out there that runs like molasses?? Wow. Then you release 2/3rds of your defensive line and bring in a 33 year old tackle and a guy with heart problems? Weird. Then you replace the most durable and productive receiver in football with the most injury prone? I'm still trying to wrap my head around the fact that we gave 90 million to two tight ends (when their contracts weren't up) and neither one is out there. How do you let Welker go and hand 45 million to Aaron Hernandez? Not saying anyone knew he was Dexter Morgan, but they had to of known something about his character.
The fact that we are 4-1 is great, but looking forward there are some serious concerns...and there didn't need to be.
Yeah, as if Adrian Wilson is not HOF kind of player. Can you believe Houston signed Ed Reed to 6 mil per?
How did Old Man Ed look last night? bawhahha
You're still trying to wrap your head around how BB and Kraft could not know Hernandez led a double life and why cutting off the two best TEs at what they do, at the pass before FA, was not more than sound fiscal strategy?
Yeah, let's let the two best at what they do become FAs and then be unable to resign them! Good one, Mr Amchair Cupcake. How was class today? How many pollluted statements did you make today to destroy another class in an already dumbing down of America, huh, Cupcake?
The SERIOUS CONCERN is TOm Brady. Tune into to 98.5 sometime with Gresh and Zo in between Cupcake Baking 101 at the middle school and listen to the amount of fans starting to notice Brady's flaws.
Hey CUpcake?! How was Denver's D looking to ya!???! Do you think it was smart for stupid Elway to wildly jump in to pay Welker when his D is one of the worst, if not the worst, in the AFC or league?
How's Denver's D looking? Like our's has been for the last half decade...you really do have a fascination with every other team, don't you?
Yeah Adrian Wilson was a hall of fame type of player...five years ago. Bawahahaha!! My lord you are distorted, aren't you? And why do you keep bringing up Reed? Oh that's right, he was your number one off season free agent priority...remember that? Why would we need him? We drafted Tavon Wilson just last year...how's "super reach" doing nowadays? Hey remember when you started a thread "the warnings were out people" after Wilson made a tackle last off season? That was a good one - what is Tavon up to these days? It could be worse for you - remember those days when you said Patrick Chung really helped turn around our defense or said Merriweather was the second best safety in the AFC? I'm beginning to think you don't know all that much about safeties--exhibit B
1. Exhibit B, folks. We had Exhibit A above with PatsEng, who also has turned into a BB basher.
Classic RKrap. Overrates every mediocre signing or overpaid FAs for other AFC teams and then claims things like this for a future HOF Safety.
BB plays a nickel base in lile 75% of the snaps. This means we'll see more dime type stuff with BB using Wilson like a coverage or taking off a Spikes or Hightowers more than a Wilson.
He's not going to be riding the bench. You don't take off a future HOFer who makes your entire D better due to what kind of formation you're supposed to play (non nickel or dime).
Dumb as a bag of rocks.
BB is drooling over the possibilites for Wilson in his D and you and PatsEng are making it seem like he'll see the field 25% of the time, which is false.
A player with this kind of a skill set is bad news for opposing offenses. Wilson was also not taken off the the field last year due to performance either, it was due to them moving on, being out of the playoffs and debuting other young players who may or may not be in their plans after Wilson was leaving.
