Forum Post: Mortensen... Just... Wow...

Mortensen, who has about as much credibility as Brian Williams these days, will talk to anybody in the media except guys in Boston who will hold him accountable for his shoddy reporting and his less t more »

I think I understand Curt's point though I won't try to articulate it since it's a sensitive subject. The way he tried to make his point - using Nazis/Hitler - he was asking to be called on the carpe more »

Posted 08/25/2015 12:04:22 EDT
I don't doubt DA would make a significant trade tomorrow if it meant it's making this team better. Speculation in another article I read (can't find it again) named Joe Johnson (really?), Al Horford more »
Forum Post: Dombrowski in, Cherington Out
Posted 08/19/2015 07:56:03 EDT
Anybody have any idea how much control the GM that Dombrowski hires will be given? I have to admit I'm a bit concerned about this hire depending on what other moves are made. My only hope is that he more »
Forum Post: If everything goes right, I say 51 wins this season.

I think without the revolving door and potential trades looming over this team to the extent it did last year that a minimum of 45 wins is doable. Smart will be better, more vets have time in Brad's more »

Or some people could admit injuries, learning a new defensive scheme and just generally growing into the position takes time for some players. They don't all come in and dominate. Hightower has been more »
Posted 08/17/2015 11:11:47 EDT
And just think - a few years ago Hightower was being called a bust by some. Now, who do the Pats pay going forward? Hightower? Collins? Both? And if they get paid who doesn't? Both are understat more »
Forum Post: Anybody read Borges' article about if it wasn't brady goodell would have done the same thing?
Posted 08/11/2015 11:02:10 EDT
Anything that has happened to Brady is the result of bad blood between Goodell and Belichick from Spygate - I am convinced of it. Didn't Goodell basically justify the harsh penalty on Brady because h more »
Forum Post: Roger Goodell's Fatal Mistake
Posted 08/06/2015 06:45:19 EDT
The only way things change in the NFL is if the owners agree that Goodell's continued mishandling of discipline is bad for business. I am not so sure that's the case, however. This whole deflategate more »

Brady has to be exonerated. Where is the proof he did anything, either in the cyberworld or in actual documented PSI ball measurements that were greatly below where they should have been? If we are more »

As bad or worse is the team being docked a 1st and a 4th for something that a) Belichick and Kraft knew nothing about and b) cannot be proved to even have happened. I know Kraft said he wasn't going more »

Step one on the road to becoming a better player for Sullinger is getting in shape so he can play 32 mpg. Hire a trainer and a nutritionist. Step two is convincing him to stop jacking threes and to more »
