If Grat went done the Pats would need another option, but I don't know that they can find a place for another back on the team - they already need to plan for Siliga's return (if he makes it back for more »

I would not be surprised to see the Pats line up heavy like they did in Indy with multiple tight ends/extra OLine but use it as a passing offense instead of the heavy dose of run. If Brady has time to more »

GM hat = way over paid for what he has contributed, but that is his contract and is an 'off-season' issue. Once the season starts and he is on the team the contract is beside the point. Then it become more »

Thomas is Jemea - 6th rd draft pick who just was cut and signed to practice squad by Rams. I have been impressed with the number of ex Pats in general and DBs in particular (the other area seems to be more »

I think Sanchez may in fact thrive in Philly - Fowles has and he aint that great either - but it is a fast paced offense with lots of options designed for quick reads. If Mark understands it and he ha more »

I think Brady has always been phenomenal in the pocket moving up/back and side to side to avoid the rush. The difference in a few games this year is he has escaped the pocket completely to one side or more »

It was a twisting motion as a rusher grab his arm as he went buy and his body torqued as he shrugged him off and then he just collapsed.

Nice article with some insight into that 'Patriot Way' cliche. And I think it gets down to not just the praise but also the criticism - you seldom see a player hung out to do the 'mea culpa' routine o more »

The thing that always gives me pause when reading PFF grading systems was that Wendell and the offensive line as a whole graded out as the best in football I think 2 years ago. Then last year Wendell more »

I thought the hit was mid thigh which is legal (I think!) The real danger is shin to knee because you end up forcing the knee to bend in ways it wasn't meant to - once you are solidly on the thigh, th more »

Lafell's rise has relegated the Tyms/Dobson pair to insurance against injury. 1/2 are Edelman and Lafell in whichever order the game plan and defense dictates, #3 is Amendola/Wright in whatever the ga more »

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 »

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 »

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 »
