    In response to zbellino's comment: There has been a lot of greif about a few defensive wins and one loss. A lot of this has focused on the idea that the offense would "produce" more if they went back more »

    I think Billups is a good comparison, except Smart is more physical while Billups is a better shooter.  It took Billups a while to figure out what he was (undersized 2 or a 1).  If Smart can have the more »

    I actually agree with Finn, and I'm not anti-Brady.  (Actually, I don't agree that Vereen is a better threat than Faulk ever was.)  The article is hardly anti-Brady BTW.  I think Finn throws out some more »

    He did have a few nice rushes where he forced Carr to step up in the pocket and hurry his throws a bit.  Those kinds of plays don't show up on stat sheets.  He's a situational pass rusher until he rec more »

    You can be a fan and also be objective and most posters here try to be that.  I tend to read those posters the closest.  Then again, there are a lot of glass-half-empty or a glass-half-full fans here. more »

    Stupid question - but couldn't the Sox overpay in AAV in turn for less years to the tune of 4 years, 110 mil?  Granted - it's a lot of money, but the Sox are more likely to get 3-4 good years from Les more »

    Boras gambled and lost.  He advised his client to reject the QO since he felt that the market for a serviceable (or slightly better than average if you prefer) SS would yield more.  How does that make more »

    I am not willing to say the WR corps stinks two weeks into the season.  I'll grant that Brady seemed to target Gronk and Edelman a lot, and let's hope other guys step up when teams start keying on tho more »

    It's not the topics he chooses, it's his predictable angle.  To have credibility (with me anyway) you can't be one-sided.  He is mostly one sided, or at least it's clear he's trying to provoke a (bad) more »

    Red Sox can afford to pay Pedey.  There is no salary cap and his guaranteed contract (and declining production) would likely mean they would get less than $.80 on the dollar or possibly have to eat so more »

    They can afford to pay Pedroia and I'm willing to bet he'll be productive enough over the course of his contract.  BB would probably ask him to take a paycut in he was a Patriots player, but this is a more »
