History will look at this era of Patriots football very kindly and some day we'll all wish BB was here running the show -- unless the Kraft family hitches its wagon to the next up-and-coming football more »

A talent infusion in the form of at least 1 but preferably 2 All-Star caliber players. Definitely 2 if Rondo leaves/is traded. This team has a nice mix of young talent and draft picks. Can they dev more »

I'll guess 32 and my reasons are the following. I expect improvement from Olynyk and Sullinger. Turner (versatile, and looking to prove himself) and Thornton (scoring and looking for his next contra more »

Let's give him some time before declaring him offensively inept. I know the numbers don't look good right now, but it's hardly a representative sample and he will continue to work on his skills. I s more »

Not sure he is lead back material, but agree that he has produced in spots when involved in the game plan. If he can stay healthy and take a good portion of the carries that Ridley was getting I thin more »

I don't read Eric Wilbur, but it's pretty sad when the headline is always 100% indicative of the author so I don't even need to guess which stories are his. It's laughable. It's like the boy who cried more »

If by "how far off" we mean playoffs - well sure, in the east this team could sneak in as currently built. The debate, to me, is about far off are they from being a true contender. And no mistake, more »

As a FA it can never hurt to have your name associated with one of the haves of MLB who can spend on FAs. The Sox may potentially have a need at C if Swihart is part of a bigger offseason deal.

He can score and we knew that coming in. I'm sure there will be a lot of trade deadline talks with Thornton's name in the mix to change teams along with Bass and others. I still believe that if a gu more »

Let Oly and others worry about threes and stretching the floor. It shouldn't be a major part of Sully's repertoir. Many years ago the same was said about Antoine Walker. Put him in the paint where more »

To me, if you're a 1st - 3rd rounder (with the exception of a QB) the team thinks you can come in and likely help in the short term. There have been some misses in rds. 2-3 where the Pats have had a more »

Unfortunate how it ended for Josh here -- I think he was a bit understood. He was a pleasure to watch in 2007 and Mike Lowell was no slouch either. Great trade for the Sox.

Ok, this one speaks volumes about the board mentality:
Brady not at fault
Say the Brady ball washers
Others think he is

Can't see Chung getting cut, and Wilson plays ST and in sub. Could see Vellano, and either Skinner or Davis.

This team showed some resiliency after being obliterated a week ago. They were humbled, and I loved watching the local and national media hop all over the supposed demise of the Pats, BB and Brady. more »

What do 20,000 posts and $.50 get you?
Thrown out of Dunkin Donuts because you're $.70 short for a cuppa coffee.
Just kidding Babe.

This team looked listeless on both sides of the ball. Playcalling, preparation, lack of intensity were all factors. Maybe overall talent and age (too young or too old) of key players has something t more »
