  • Forum Post: Question about CB depth Chart

    Posted 07/31/2014 07:31:24 EDT

       Arrington has a major special teams role.  I've said this many times before, but part of the reason he got the contract he did is because BB likes his contribution on Special Teams.  After Slater, more »

    Posted 07/31/2014 07:27:16 EDT

      Not seeing any problem, myself.  Officials have always had lots of judgments to make.  The video just attempts to clarify how they make those judgments.  In fact, if you look at the grabbing-the-jer more »

    I don't think the term "third-down back" makes much sense in today's NFL.  There was a time when the passing back was a specialist who came in mostly in obvious passing situations.  But with teams pas more »

       True, they haven't won it all since those two left, but they've been to the big game twice and have the best winning percentage in football I believe since 2004, so I don't think the loss of those more »

       I suspect the backs are going to be  Vereen White Ridley Develin   The rest are fighting for a likely fifth spot.  I would presume Bolden has the lead, but Finch has a shot too.  Gray and Houston s more »

       Patriots.com did also mention the backs in the next section--very positive about White, which is good news.  The backs are likely to play a bigger role in the passing game this year, I believe.  Th more »

       Yes, Revis is huge, but there were lots of positive signs with the other players last year as Eng points out.  When you add Browner, Dennard, Ryan, and Arrington, we've got superb depth at the corn more »

      Honestly, based purely on the descriptions I've read so far (and caveating everything since I haven't seen either play much), I think Garappolo has higher upside than Mallet.  I was never that enamo more »

       You guys have to learn to temper your expectations.  Boyce is a fourth round pick who's done nothing yet.  Maybe he'll prove he can play, but saying that the Pats have a great receiving corp becaus more »

    Way, way, way too early to be making these kind of judgments.  Grappolo wasn't from a big time program so it was to be expected that he'd have some substantial learning to do.  I think you've got to g more »
