    Posted 08/30/2014 11:49:20 EDT

    All 5 will be on the roster I'm betting.  All will play a role with this team.  This is the same poster that said Ryan and Harmon were busts one week into training camp last year.  Bold predictions he more »

  • Forum Post: Ryan Mallett Soon to Be Traded??

    Posted 08/29/2014 03:16:29 EDT

    In fairness to Mallet, he hasn't really had the opportunity to show much because he's playing behind one of the best QBs ever.  Very little chance to show what he has in preseason, and he hasn't exact more »

  • Forum Post: Mankins Said No To Pay Cut

    Posted 08/28/2014 12:35:11 EDT

    Logan said publicly after signing his extension that he understood the business side of the NFL.  He predicted his own departure from the Pats not long after signing the extension.  He took a risk hol more »

    Posted 08/28/2014 12:05:53 EDT

    I can't see BB going into the season with a rookie QB as the backup.  JG has looked good in preseason, sure.  I doubt he has enough time in the system to be able to outperform Mallet if it came down t more »

    Can we stop feeling bad for Josh Gordon, or any NFL player for that matter, for not adhering to the requirements of the league he/they play(s) for?  Here is a guy who clearly made some bad life choice more »

  • Forum Post: Was Trading Mankins the Wright Move for Pats?

    Posted 08/26/2014 04:31:06 EDT

    I never expected Mankins to play out his contract here and expected that he would be cut toward the end of his deal because we all know he was never going to agree to a pay cut/restructure.  Instead B more »

    Posted 08/26/2014 03:52:03 EDT

    Someone somewhere in the Mankins discussion said it's better to get rid of a guy a year early than a year late.  They got a player at a position of need (TE) and a pick for a player who some analysts more »

  • Forum Post: Is Jimmy Garoppolo the one that's actually on the trading block??

    Posted 08/26/2014 12:28:53 EDT

    Is there a precedent for a first year player -- esp. a QB -- being flipped for a higher draft pick in the same year he was drafted?  I agree that JG has shown flashes in preseason.  But enough that an more »

      I get the sense that Thompkins could put up a 75 catch year and some will still be underwhelmed.  The kid has talent and will do well, and I find it even more comforting that he seems to have the co more »

    I honestly believe that Ainge will continue to shuffle the deck until it's time to play his hand.  By this, I expect that he'll continue to acquire short-term contracts and additional draft picks by m more »

    I expect that the young WRs will show well for themselves this year.  Baptism by fire and a full offseason should ensure that we see continued growth.

    Sure, but, while I have no idea what the braintrust's plan actually is, I would be willing to bet a lot of money that the plan is indeed "Cespedes: extend him or trade him" ... I can buy that, but if more »

    I don't really understand the trade either.  If Cespy was 24 and cost-controlled he'd be a nice trade piece.  Instead he's pushing 30 and due to hit FA - and the Sox aren't going to overpay him based more »

    No way Quick Draw Jimmy is cut after 1 training camp.  It's a lock that there will be 3 QBs on the roster.  As someone else mentioned, a guy like Bolden (who I really like) could be cut if Finch or on more »
