    Don't get hung up on the title of the thread. It is just an attention grabber, a technique commonly used in media publications. I did not say the team should fold. I said ~ if you have a genius HC and more »

    I've stated nothing wrong or controversial. It is the system design. As I said before a good coach, front office, may delay decline for a few years but it will come. Always has...always will.  It is n more »

    I don't see many of you taking issue with the premise about the design of the system. Do you or do you not agree that the system is designed to build parity? If so, decline of a successful team is onl more »

    Picking towards the end of the draft pecking order lends itself to a mediocre football team; it works very well as designed when combined with the salary cap. Even signing one or two outstanding free more »

    Last in the AFC East as of this afternoon. Was the worsened play from first half to second half of the game the result of heat and humidity, or is this team the worst it has fielded in the last ten ye more »

    4. New England Patriots (12-4) - Previously: 5.  It'll be a huge upset if neither the Broncos nor Patriots make it to the Super Bowl. The former has the edge, however, because of stuff like this. I've more »

    Actually, now I read the Bills did not claim Aiken. Pretty suave move!

    Doesn't make much sense to cut Aiken then resign him, as Pats would have to cut someone else to bring him back. Why risk your LS doing such a boneheaded act? Anyways, if that was the plan then it is s more »

    Might be a long shot but the long snapper may be Stork. He looked pretty good snapping the hide in the shotgun. Don't know about him on the FG unit, but if he is good at it then it would save a roster more »

    I enjoy football. Played some when I was younger and I learned that I did not have the talent or size to play. I got run over by a guy who was cut from the try outs with the Packers who broke three of more »

    As of today, the Patriots have 86 players signed from 59 different colleges. The most number of players on their roster from one college is from Rutgers and it is now 7% of the total roster, more than more »

    Here we go...signing another defensive back from Rutgers (Jeremy Deering - Safety).   At least a draft pick was not wasted on him but months ago I predicted he would be a new Patriot.   One of the thi more »

    When you put it all together I think it was a good draft. The expert ranking of the drafted players by position is not too bad, considering the Pats are at the bottom of the draft order and there are more »
