    Amendola is overpaid based on his statistical production.  Sure, I'll buy that.  I think he's probably a goner after this year unless there is mutual interest for him to restructure.  But you know wha more »

    Let's really tell it like it is.  Losing Mayo, Nink and Arrington would hurt this team but not cripple it due to roster depth.  These 3 guys are constantly targeted by T-Cal and (I think) it has to do more »

    I agree -- I think the O needs to prove they can run against the Lions and everyone else on their schedule headed into the playoffs.  Yesterday's emphasis and success running the ball may have been ga more »

    A few astute observations in this thread.  1. Of course Hamels is using his no trade leverage to get his option year picked up.  2. Why would the Sox give up the farm AND pay Hamels?  Why not just re- more »

    I don't even know what you are saying.  I'm guessing you don't like Bradley.  Hey - 8 million bucks gets you a guy like Bradley these days in the NBA.  He may be slightly overpaid but he's not as bad more »

    I've read and heard enough from pundits, analysts and football writers from other NFL markets over the years regarding Mayo's value to the team.  He has been called a tackling machine, QB of the defen more »

    I've seen him set the edge and he can also rush the passer.  He has played both DE/DT but the more I see him at DE the more I like him.  Agreed that stats don't tell the whole story with this guy, and more »

    The 5 SBs the Pats played in under BB and Brady all came down to a handful of plays.  They happened to prevail in the first three but it could'vd gone either way.  I think people saying that they are more »

    This team does have talent, but very little proven top echelon talent and lots of question marks. Rondo is arguably a top 5-10 PG depending who you ask.  Last night he looked very good and mostly over more »

    I agree that since Lynch has a ring as well as an overinflated sense of worth it's doubtful he'd rein himself in to be a part of another winner.  I'd still take him on an incentive-laden deal, but I d more »

    He's had a few drops, sure.  But I think Edelman has proven that he can be a reliable top 2 WR on this team.  We can nitpick any player and find plays where he screwed up, so take the drops in the con more »

    The price was right for a guy who looks (as others said above) like someone you can plug in and who will make some plays.  Not bad for dropping back slightly in the draft.

    Just read on ESPN that Lynch is the next to go in Seattle's housecleaning.  (Insert ESPN comments here - I get it.)  Cory Dillon redux?  Not sure he fits here personality-wise, and I have no idea what more »

    A talent infusion in the form of at least 1 but preferably 2 All-Star caliber players.  Definitely 2 if Rondo leaves/is traded.  This team has a nice mix of young talent and draft picks.  Can they dev more »
