    Interesting reading and discussion - it just points to how hard it is to truly evaluate talent in college and project it to an NFL team. It is not just talent but scheme fit. And it does stop there - more »

    These games happen all the time in the NFL - including last week in the TB/Atlanta game. Ask Pittsburgh how terrible TB is this week. Last night was terrible on offense and defense. Special teams play more »

    Some really 'interesting' ideas being spouted here about a pretty simple concept that has nothing to do with Rice's crime. No one here condones domestic violence I think. What Rice did was disgusting more »

    Bit silly - Brady seems as obsessed with football as ever. Its like saying any NFLer who is married with kids is distracted. I actually think there are probably fewer distractions for him than most be more »

    DougIrwin - thanks for looking up the records pre-Caroll. Pats pre BB were: 1995: 6-10, 1996: 11-5 (SB Loss), 1997: 10-6 (Div Loss), 1998: 9-7 (WC Loss), 1999: 8-8. And BB's first year 2000: 5-11. Sin more »

    Couple of thoughts - 1. You are seeing in Seattle what you can build when you are pretty miserable for a number of years and have great draft capital and a good GM who has hit on a majority of those d more »

    In response to Cyberknot's comment: [QUOTE] In response to sportsbozo1's comment: [QUOTE] I would have to rate BB's work as very good also. He's managed to keep the same HC for over 10 years. As for h more »

    Interesting to see that Miami claimed Gaston off wavers - intelligence move to find out the defensive game plan or real interest?

    As a GM I am not sure who ranks above BB - every GM has runs of very good drafts and then some significant misses  and runs of good FA signings and trades followed by some flops. So when you look at a more »

    If reports are correct Quarles is now on the practice squad for NE and I wonder if Gaston will be back as well - I think the cut and resign of the QB on the practice squad was just because of Brady's more »

    BB hates the league rules regarding what can be worn, what news conferences he has to hold, the injury report rules, all the bull crap that is demanded by the league. So he follows the rules to the ba more »

    I think having 'better' receivers is actually a big part in improving the impressions of the O-Line. Last year Brady was holding the ball too long waiting for the rookies to break free of coverage or more »

    Everyone knows there have been gay players in football since the league started, but it is news to have one that is 'out' which is why ESPN and other news outlets keep following the story. And I am su more »

    Posted 09/04/2014 01:40:39 EDT

    ddlmaria - I am sure they do have an exit interview with everyone they cut and with those they are likely to resign, they tell them not to make any long term plans and to stay in the area. But they al more »

    Interesting OP - my feeling, yes Brady is better than most QBs in not putting a receiver in bad situations to take devastating hits, but his receivers still get lit up from time to time. The differenc more »

    SEC defensive player of the year - he has talent. His problem is he is a tweener in terms of size/speed so he needs a system and a coaching staff that can use his skills and cover his weaknesses. He w more »

    Posted 09/04/2014 10:29:00 EDT

    Yup - no surprise. Use the spot for the 'test drive' and check who else was available - Aiken came in originally in the week before opening game, so they weren't that concerned about finding a LS if A more »

    I think it is age and looking at a 19 game season/post-season and players who can be strong for the end of the run, not just at the start. I also think with the increase in option type offenses we are more »

    On that draft capital issue - the Colts S--- for Luck draft value based on those charts was probably the equivalent of the Patriots next three drafts combined. Not that those charts are all that accur more »

    I still think a super bowl winning team is most years the luckiest team in the league. A year like Chicago had and probably the Seahawks last year are the exceptions. Every week in the NFL there are b more »

    Giant fans seem upset about losing Quarles and Arians was pretty high on Gaston - I prefer both to Kelly as he is old and coming off major injury. Not saying they stick, but get them in for a look. Th more »

  • Posted 08/31/2014 02:25:18 EDT

    We claimed DT Quarles from Giants who has to be signed to 53 first even if he ends on practice squad so that takes the roster spot for now. I expect another trade or release of an OLine and resign of more »

    Posted 08/31/2014 11:02:37 EDT

    Nice post all. I actually like the Mankins trade. It was going to be harder to trade him next year and his salary is out of line with his value at this point, and keeping aging linemen has two issues more »

    In response to DougIrwin's comment: [QUOTE] No team will sign Mallett next offseason if the price is a 3rd rder. I keep saying this. That is why it makes sense to deal him for a 5th or 6th now.   [/QU more »

    Some knees are better than others - If Easley's second torn ACL was the same knee I don't think teams would have touched him as that signals more issue with the knee and not the recovery. The fact tha more »
