    In response to CatfishHunter's comment: Are you guys ^^^ talking about Jake Bequette, or have the Pats signed another Bequette to the roster? In the 2nd and 3rd preseason games JB did not even appear more »

    First thing I thought when he ended up of the practice squad is what kind of pictures does he have of BB or one of the Krafts?  But really, they must see something in this guy that makes them want to more »

      Why don't we all just admit that getting to the Super Bowl, never mind winning one, is dam n hard to do?  BB wasted Brady's talent?  These guys got this team to 5 SBs, and as someone correctly point more »

    Maybe Spikes has grown up.  But based on what we've seen here, it seems like a bad choice.  Spikes was never considered a leader here but moreso the guy who would set the tone with his physicality.  A more »

    All the back seat GMs in the media are clearly yearning for a return to the days of Bobby Grier so their criticisms can actually stick.  I hope Kraft implodes Gillette too so we can go back to the goo more »

    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 »

    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 »

    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 »

    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 »

    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 »

    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 »

      He seems to have the physical tools but that's only part of what he'll need to make it.  For a guy a few months into his NFL career (and who has done nothing of note professionally) we've heard way 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.
