    I enjoy a good defensive game and Jags/Ravens was terrific. The new look Pats and most of the rest of the league are boring gun-slinging affairs or wannabes. If the Pats win this year with that terrib more »

    Boy what a hatchet job! Did anyone ask Randy if he was in pain waiting for Vicadin to kick in and didn't really want to gut out the event like a game? Come on man! Gasper, did Randy make you feel like more »

    Mankins is really good and indispensable. If he wasn't he wouldn't have been offered that huge contract already. Oh well, they'll stick to their principles because they have to and its a net loss for more »

    Guyton is a pretty decent player. I looked at his stats and he is better against the pass than the run. But he also stuffed the run well in games against the Jets and Baltimore. The one statistic I do more »

    NE fans aren't turning on Mankins. In light of his turning down a fair market deal and ripping the organization he has made himself the enemy. Its how he's going about his business that makes fans ang more »

    It seems like a lot of money but it must not have had enough up front. That or Mankins really wants to be in the top 3 for pay at his position. He'll be difficult to replace and I don't know what the more »

    The Pats set a precedent with several players this year that they'll make good on their promises of payment. I don't think its the fact that he doesn't believe the Pats will pay him but that the money more »

    In the end he'll sign the tender and the Pats will give him some sort of signing bonus to get him to play. Isn't that the way it worked for VW last year? more »

    I don't understand why everyone is saying the tight end position is an upgrade without any proof. I'm hoping like everyone else that this is a position of strength but I'm not counting on contribution more »

    He tested positive and that's the reason he had to give up on his dream of working for the Post Office and pursue the grim reality of an NFL career. Sometimes when life deal you lemons you make lemon more »

    Posted 04/26/2010 11:13:33 EDT

    This isn't going to be a sack-heavy team next year. The defense looks like they're shaping up to be heavy in zone defense and zone blitzing. Overall the pass rush problem goes on for another year. more »

    Apparently we have AT 2.0 in Cunningham, "is said to have good athletic ability and instincts, but has some problems bending, coming off blocks and playing in space.

    Sounds like AT to me. more »

    I think its great that BB went "tough" but this is a passing, finesse league now and we'll see if "tough" can stop Indy's "finesse" and the arena league rules. My guess is no. more »

    Posted 04/23/2010 03:12:53 EDT

    The Pats did the right thing if they believe that this guy is going to help their pass defense and special teams more than the OLBs left on the board could develop into and contribute as pass rushers. more »

    Chad Jackson and Bethel Johnson come to mind immediately. How is this guy any different than them? I don't think BB picks good receivers; there was a body of work on Moss and Welker but there's been a more »

    This guy simply can't shed blocks. I'm not sure where he feels comfortable and what skills he brings but he doesn't appear to be able to overcome players one on one. He's too old to be any better now more »

    I can't believe as a Pats fan I'm THIS interested in the draft. I'm COUNTING on the draft to either produce four starters or another Welker and Moss from trades. Either way I hope if BB does want Tebo more »
