Forum Post: Vereen & more an indirect result of the Seymour trade....
Posted 08/24/2011 05:38:23 EDT
I think that Bill's strategy is to have an extra 1st round pick every year, that he can trade for a 2nd and a 1st next year. That way he'll always have an extra 2nd rounder and a chip for the next yea more »

Forum Post: Mel Kiper haters...
Posted 04/12/2011 01:25:18 EDT
I loved it when NE drafted Vollmer in the second round, and everyone stopped and stared for a second, then looked to Kiper. He had a lot to say about him, knew his German roots and that he played for more »
Forum Post: NFL wants to change the kickoff
Posted 03/17/2011 01:33:19 EDT
The current rule starts players at the 30, and it seems to me that the kick team and the returner meet somewhere between the 15-20 yard line (I'm assuming it's a good kicker who has decent hang time). more »
Forum Post: Mankins should fire his agent
Posted 02/25/2011 09:48:12 EST
After seeing what he said about the Patriots, this guy is a tool. Mankins should fire him and get someone who is a lot more level headed. Sure, he doesn't have the long-term deal he wants yet, but his more »
Forum Post: matt roth?
Posted 02/18/2011 01:40:34 EST
I am an Iowa Hawkeyes fan, and Matt Roth went to Iowa. He is a physical player, but not very intelligent. I would doubt that he could understand and execute the complex defenses that Belichick uses. P more »
Forum Post: The benefit of video taping the defensive signals
Posted 02/07/2011 05:13:38 EST
My opinion would be that taping them isn't the primary goal, it's to let the other team know that you're taping their signals. Next time you play them, they have to spend more time changing signals. M more »
Forum Post: Asomugha a free agent
Posted 01/10/2011 05:07:24 EST
I never thought that he'd be a Patriot, just because of his price tag. I just wondered if it was possible for him to still play during this postseason for another team, namely the Jets more »
Posted 01/10/2011 11:55:53 EST
Since his contract is void, can a playoff team pick him up and play him in the playoffs? I'm not saying that it would be needed for the Pats, but I would hate to see the Jets pick him up and play him more »

Posted 05/28/2010 12:32:32 EDT
What I would like to see is a return to attacking a defense where it's most vulnerable, which would require different game-planning each week. If a defense is quick, run a lot of screens, draws, misdi more »
Forum Post: Report: Colts' Mathis wants new contract, Mathis skips OTAs over money
Posted 05/27/2010 11:06:31 EDT
I just think it's funny that the Colts front-loaded his $30 million contract, and now that he's at the end where there's low payouts, he wants more money. At least the Patriots are smart about the big more »

Forum Post: Terrible Pat’s drafting record
Posted 04/05/2010 02:16:48 EDT
Going into the '07 season, everyone knew that the Patriots were stacked. We had far too many draft choices, and nowhere on the roster to put them. It wasn't like BB made bad decisions on who he kept a more »

After last season we let go of Lonie Paxton, a very reliable and trusted long-snapper. We brought in a veteran and drafted Jake Ingram as well. I was pretty surprised that he won the battle, but I did more »

The Patriots have historically had a tough time with Denver teams, and it looks like the Bills are pretty serious in talking to Mike Shanahan, Denver's former head coach. I know that Bill has a lot of more »

I wasn't happy with the calls either, but if we hadn't thrown the INT in the end-zone, and Maroney hadn't fumbled at the 1, those calls wouldn't have mattered. We beat ourselves. more »
