  • Forum Post: Negative Consequences of BB the GM

    Posted 10/24/2014 09:04:08 EDT

    History will look at this era of Patriots football very kindly and some day we'll all wish BB was here running the show -- unless the Kraft family hitches its wagon to the next up-and-coming football more »

    Posted 10/23/2014 04:53:59 EDT

    A talent infusion in the form of at least 1 but preferably 2 All-Star caliber players.  Definitely 2 if Rondo leaves/is traded.  This team has a nice mix of young talent and draft picks.  Can they dev more »

    Let's give him some time before declaring him offensively inept.  I know the numbers don't look good right now, but it's hardly a representative sample and he will continue to work on his skills.  I s more »

    Not sure he is lead back material, but agree that he has produced in spots when involved in the game plan.  If he can stay healthy and take a good portion of the carries that Ridley was getting I thin more »

  • Forum Post: How Far Off Are the Celtics

    Posted 10/10/2014 09:04:19 EDT

    If by "how far off" we mean playoffs - well sure, in the east this team could sneak in as currently built.  The debate, to me, is about far off are they from being a true contender.   And no mistake, more »

    As a FA it can never hurt to have your name associated with one of the haves of MLB who can spend on FAs. The Sox may potentially have a need at C if Swihart is part of a bigger offseason deal.

    He can score and we knew that coming in.  I'm sure there will be a lot of trade deadline talks with Thornton's name in the mix to change teams along with Bass and others.  I still believe that if a gu more »

    Posted 10/08/2014 12:41:28 EDT

    Let Oly and others worry about threes and stretching the floor.  It shouldn't be a major part of Sully's repertoir.  Many years ago the same was said about Antoine Walker.  Put him in the paint where more »

    Posted 10/08/2014 11:06:38 EDT

    To me, if you're a 1st - 3rd rounder (with the exception of a QB) the team thinks you can come in and likely help in the short term.  There have been some misses in rds. 2-3 where the Pats have had a more »

    Unfortunate how it ended for Josh here -- I think he was a bit understood.  He was a pleasure to watch in 2007 and Mike Lowell was no slouch either.  Great trade for the Sox.
