    In response to dapats1281's comment: I like Lafell as a camp body...hopefully there isnt too much guaranteed in the contract. He's a 400-700 yard receiver IMO....I'm hoping he's just here as a rotatio more »

    Just about everywhere I read, Thompkins is mentioned as someone expected to make a big leap next year. I didn't see a lot to make me think that he would be a factor going forward. What am I missing wi more »

    I think Moss would have worked out this year a lot better than Ocho. If nothing else, he knows the playbook, and I am betting would command more attention out there than Ocho. But, i dont think he wou more »

    We have to start getting things into perspective here. Tom Brady has been to 5 Super Bowls. Won 3 really tight games and lost 2 others with a lead under 2 minutes to play. It is a team game, and not a more »

    I actually think Randy is sincere. It is almost the end of the road for Randy and I think he knows he screwed up here and regrets it. The guy doesn't have enough time left in his career to play anymor more »

    I will say one thing that I think is changing. This is just from my perspective and that of the people I know, purely middle class families. Years and years ago, we would go to probably 10 Sox games a more »

    I think people will feel a lot better about the status of this team once a little time has passed. This was a team that really suprised me. They went 14-2 with almost the worst statistical defensive t more »

    Winning 3 out of 4 Super Bowls is an amazing accomplishment. The Pats had that special mix of great players and chemistry that does not happen often. I was just thinking tonight of what having Ty Law, more »

    It is possible that Vick has changed his ways. Only time will tell. I hear a lot about how dog fighting was common in Vick's life growing up. The thing that really bothered me the most are the reports more »

    Health care is an issue that will grow in scope going into 2012. As a self employed person, I wonder if I will ever be able to buy a family health insurance plan again for under $1200 per month, or wi more »

    I would also guess Bill is going to ride it out here until Brady's time is done. I think Bill has done a solid job of rebuilding so far and really think we are headed into another special run here. I more »

    I think we are all going to give the defense a chance to come together and play well. That being said, I can't imagine how anyone could say they are not very worried about that side of the ball for th more »

    I will believe Al Gore on global warming just as soon as he produces evidence on how well NAFTA & GATT has worked for the American worker. As you may recal, fighting for NAFTA was his last gig.   more »

    Self Employed people do have to pay extra tax on their health insurance that no one else does. Congress has refused to address this for years.. See Below. The deduction is "above the line" for the sel more »

    Health Insurance/Care reform is the one area where I think the Republicans fall terribly short. As stated in a previous post, my family health care plan costs over $16,000 per year purchased from the more »

    Obama's biggest failure so far has been his lack of focus on small business. Out of all the bailouts, stimulus etc.. almost nothing has been done for the small business/self employed workers. Take his more »

    This is a very difficult problem. I just went onto the commenwealth connector to check out current family plan rates for BCBS. I am 37 and my wife is 36 years old. A family plan for us with one kid is more »

    Al Gore sold the country on NAFTA all those years ago. People said Ross Perot was a fool. Was NAFTA a success? Now Gore is pushing cap & trade and even more trade agreements on NAFTA. Perot is long go more »

    The Red Sox did not really try to keep Damon that off season. The Yankees offered a lot more money, and he did what he had to do. "Theo and the Trio" didn't like Damon's attitude/rock star status. Tha more »

    Baseball is big business and Damon took the better deal. That is what kind of pisses me off about the reports of ratings being down this year, bandwagon fans etc...Years of free agency have taught the more »

    The last game we went to was last summer. We took some long time friends from the west coast to a game. We got box seats from one of those "resellers". 4 box seats (not against the Yankees) cost us $6 more »

    The Colts will be the big test. By the way, if the Colts beat NE, could they be looking at an unbeaten regular season? Look at their schedule. more »

    I really don't understand it either. At first, I thought health care reform might finally deal with the crazy health insurance costs most self employed and small business face. When I read that these more »
