Just the distraction the Patriots need going into the Super Bowl. It will either unite them or be a huge distraction. The thing is, they can't win either way. If they win, they cheated and the vict more »

Only two things will speed up a slow, methodical Boston rebuild. 1. DA has enough hits in the draft to pry away an established star from another team with players and picks. 2. The C's get lucky in more »

Small sample size with Smart, granted. I think by February-March end he is going to be better. He's acclimating to the NBA game. Things you can't teach - desire, hustle, tenacity - are there. I th more »

Buy him out. He does nothing for this team. Let him sign with a contender where he can play some minutes off the bench.

I see raw talent and intangibles in JG. Whether he can learn the finer points of being an NFL-calibre QB -- we shall see. Yes he took some sacks -- he should have been more decisive at times in gett more »

I like him, but someone somewhere compared his situation to Mark Anderson. He comes here and is productive and gets overpaid. Could see that happening with Ayers. If the price is right, I hope that more »

He needs to go to team with a strong head coach and veterans who can talk sense to him about doing what he does well. He could be a very good role player if he stays within what a team is trying to d more »

If money is no object, then overpay for Shields or Scherzer. I'd rather they do that than trade prospects to Philly and pay Hamels' salary.

For this team to compete they'd need Rondo and Melo. And even then, what does compete mean? Playoff run? I don't hink Melo gets this team out of the east. Who would the C's give up for Melo to get more »
