Forum Post: NFLPA on Conference -- Brady's Battle Still On.
Posted 05/19/2015 02:34:07 EDT
Not surprised - NFL teams have very little recourse over punishments as they have pretty well given up all 'individual' rights to joing the league. Very different from players who do not 'own' the NFL more »
Forum Post: So when do Colts get fined for tampering with football?
Posted 05/17/2015 04:57:22 EDT
Was thinking of this this morning and what a different off season this would be if the NFL official who took the first call had know about the ideal gas law and done his job: Colts guy to Official: He more »
Forum Post: What the NFLPA Letter Means to Brady ...

In response to zbellino's comment: In response to Cyberknot's comment: Thanks Z for this and all of your previous educational posts. I'm just spit-balling here...you are a pretty bright guy, but I am more »
Forum Post: Any question after all this as to why BB treats the media the way he does!
Posted 05/16/2015 11:36:35 EDT
It isn't just the media he holds in contempt - it is the whole league office. The hoodie came into being because he was required to wear NFL gear at all times - so he took a sweatshirt, grubbed it up more »
Forum Post: The one question that was not asked in either of the two reports and why not?
Posted 05/16/2015 11:10:51 EDT
In response to seawolfxs' comment: I find it absurd that those questions were not asked of current and prior personell and it is totally ignored by the media if the only thing that you are worried abo more »
Forum Post: "Deflate," "deflator," "he," "them" - WRC.com and its BEST TEXT ARGUMENT
Posted 05/15/2015 08:35:47 EDT
What I find especially strange is the only text that McNally refers to himself as the 'deflator' is sent in the middle of May - this is a period of five and a half months when he isn't even at the pat more »
Forum Post: Reason why Browner let go...
Posted 03/11/2015 08:17:53 EDT
Browner was let go because of penalties - he is a tough guy but his penalty rate per game was like 2.
Still a scary proposition at this point for Pats. More magic needed from BB!
Forum Post: Does jughead retire or embarrass himself like Farve?

Find this funny - I dislike Manning and the Broncos plenty but ... Manning suffers the same problems that Brady and pretty much any pocket passer suffer - get up the middle and around their feet and t more »
Forum Post: Brady's Deep Ball
Posted 11/27/2014 09:27:38 EST
Was thinking about Randy Moss and a few other really great deep ball receivers - they always seem to have that 'extra gear' when the ball is in the air which really means they are not running full out more »
Forum Post: Green Bay's Rise to #2 in most power polls..... why?
Posted 11/27/2014 09:08:57 EST
Not really surprising - who else you going to put in the #2 spot - Pats are 9-2 and on a roll, Arizona is the only other 9-2 team and they are playing with a back-up QB and just lost. Then you look at more »
Forum Post: Trey Wingo on ESPN.. predicts a "double digit defeat" by the Packers over the Pats!!!
Posted 11/27/2014 08:52:58 EST
I could actually see this going double digits in either direction - both these teams have great offenses and while I like the Pats defense, I can also look at a game like the Lions and see receivers d more »
Forum Post: Harrison - Patriots Have The Personnel To Make The Big Stops Now
Posted 11/26/2014 11:45:21 EST
Just a comment on that #17 ranked pass defense - a big part of that is playing teams for large sections of the past 7 games that were down by at least two scores - for example: Manning - 429 yds - 2 T more »
Forum Post: let him sign with the Giants. he is a nit wit imo
Posted 11/25/2014 12:49:27 EST
Suh will sign a huge contract somewhere and that somewhere is not going to be the Pats. I can only think of one time BB when big money on a defensive front 7 player and it was a disaster. And I can't more »
Forum Post: Has Hightower Wally Pipp'd Mayo?
Posted 11/25/2014 12:33:44 EST
To start with Wally was never a team captain and that is a huge difference. And we are seeing this year the brilliance of BB in figuring out how to deal with te talent he has active on game day - the more »
Forum Post: Tate and Blount
Posted 11/19/2014 01:30:19 EST
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 »
Forum Post: Detroit - A hard team to evaluate but upon further review....
Posted 11/19/2014 01:22:16 EST
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 »
Forum Post: Tip of the Cap to Amendola
Posted 11/19/2014 01:08:59 EST
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 »

Posted 11/11/2014 03:22:45 EST
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 »

Forum Post: Ridiculous Stat
Posted 11/11/2014 02:43:56 EST
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.
Forum Post: BB As Sharp As Ever?

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 »
