  1. He played at a HOF level in his prime. I have heard quite a few offensive lineman say he was the most difficult defensive lineman they ever faced. So the point was, saying that the Patriots didn't have many hall of famers is kind of misleading. I would take Seymour's prime over some of those in the hall.

    Moss is a maybe? Lol

    I think you wish to argue.........  "LOL" ?       Im sorry if I am not as brilliant as you..... im just an average old dude behind a keyoard



    If Moss gets in, I would NOT be suprised...... you are probably right......He had a few years, where he was awesome and unstoppable...   



    Dont miss my point. I didnt say BB had scrubs around Brady. My point is, and to clarify, some of the well known coaches (Lombardi, Noll, Shula) had generally MORE HOF players at one time than BB did.


    Thats my main point.




    The thing about BB is, he seems to have the right gameplan called out more than any other coach I have ever seen.


    He seems to be able to integrate new players into their system, and make it work better than anyone


    He seems to be able to get rid of the high priced veterans right before their peak and drop


    He seems to be able to get that "peak" out of a journeyman player more than any other.


    IMHO, he is the best coach in the NFL


    I just wish he would retire early




    Take care

  2. Richard Seymour was better than all the above. I don't know if he gets in, but that doesn't mean he wasn't a kick arssse football player.....as we're all the above.


    Who is saying that he wasnt a "kick Arssse" football player.......?


    He was a very good player........




    Hall of Fame.... Nope




    There are quite a few players that have the stats that need need to get in.... (Marvin Harrison)


    As time goes by, the Patriot very good.... VERY GOOD players will be forgotten......  and NOT make the HOF


    Brady .... YES


    Moss..... Maybe


    Maybe 2-3 others that at the best maybes.........   as time goes by, they will be not on consideration

  3. Tedy Bruschi, Rodney Harrison, Willie McGinest, Randy Moss, Ty Law, Vince Wilfork... are all probably going to be in the HOF. Not to take ANYTHING away from Belichick's coaching acumen, but they've had their fair share of HOFers come through Foxborough.


    I respectfully disagree


    Tedy Bruschi?  -  1 pro bowl, Not going to happen IMHO


    Rodney Harrison? -  2 pro bowls, not going to happen IMHO


    Willie McGinest?  2 Pro bowls, not going to happen IMHO


    Ty Law?  - Best chance IMHO......   5 Pro Bowls.......  (You may be right)


    Vince Wilfolk? - Also a better chance than the others... 5 pro bowls ... (You may be right there as well)



    Either way, I still think that BB is the best coach that the NFL has ever seen.


    I would take him in a new york minute



    But......... not going to happen

  4. A bit unralistic, but.....


    Bill B. has made some mistakes and crossed the line.


    He shouldnt have done that





    Bill B. is the best HC this league has EVER seen


    As a point


    Think about the Lombardi led Packers (60's) - They won and had NINE Hall of Fame players......   NINE!!!!


    Think about the Chuck Noll led Steelers (70's) - They won and had NINE Hall of Fame players .......  NINE!!!


    Think about the Walsh led 49ers (80's) = They won and had SEVEN Hall of Fame players ........   SEVEN!


    Think about Shula and the Dolphins (early 70s) - They won and had FIVE Hall of Fame players..........  FIVE!!



    Now...... think about the Patriots.........   the ONE lock is Tom Brady......  MAYBE Gronk........ Adam V. Maybe  .......


    In these cases....... the Pats had ONE team with possibly TWO HOFs...... but theses Patriots have won anyway


    That is coaching!


    I hate the Patriots..........  hope they all miss the game bus........  BUT


    Bill B is the best coach in NFL history.........



    So...... Short story long............    Heck yes!

  5. We havent hit our stride


    If we are lucky with injury, and can win the games we should, we can come in to the playoffs ok.


    If the cylinders are all runiing, we can beat everyone in the AFC.


    The only exception..... the Patriots


    Hate them, want to see them stepped on like a bug, wish Brady the worst luck........




    They are in a whole different class.  


    All cheating aside...... there isnt a better coach in the NFL than Bill B. 


    Brady is looking amazing (I just threw up in my mouth...) But its true


    We dont seem to have the answer


    We COULD beat anyone in the NFL, if Luck is on his game........ and we are injury free


    I just dont see us going by the Pats..... not this year

  6. Is there a reason why you would say that? Could it be that practice, coaching and experience might have something to do with it? :)


    The smiley, usually means a joke for most people


    I dont believe that DQ is on roids...... just a joke,,,,  Are you his relative?


    DQ seems much faster this year


    You cant coach fast..... he is a 10 year vet...... so another year of experience didnt do it either, .......    practice?


    I wish I could make myself faster by practice...............................  I am an old 53 year old dude.... so my track star days aint happening

  7. Improved pass blocking, but we continue to massively suck on run blocking


    Mewhort is 1/2 a player at Guard


    He pass blocks very well........  He STINKS with moving the pile


    Keep him at LG......  we will continue to have problems running that way

  8. honestly, we need 3 things:


    1: A much better O Line... thats obvious, and can be done, but it is hard and needs time, not sure FA is the way to go, 

    2: Luck And/Or Pep/Pags need to get their collective crap together and stop trying for the home run play every single time and just take what the D gives you

    3: Start game planning BEFORE the game not during......



    Only 1 of which needs cap room to be done

    I think you have hit the points


    I might change the words to "add 2 quality players to OL"

    I think we are set at LT, I think we are set with Mewhort (I like him better as a RT) I think if Holmes gets some healthy time to develop, we will be ok there.


    On item 2, I think this is part of it.... BUT..... LUCK cant just wing the ball into double (or triple) coverage

    Part of our problem IS LUCK! (He has regressed)


    On item 3, I agree 100%


    The game plan is done by the HC..........    We seem to come out flat almost every game....... We seem to be surprised by the other teams game plan ALWAYS


    I was hoping that Chud would assist.........


    Hasnt happened




    For the other posters.......  A complete rebuild????   Cmon.


    We have some very good players


    We need


    Pass rush - OLB


    At least one "better" ILB


    One dominating S


    2 Guards


    Better QB play



    Thats 5 players......  not 22.............. more like a "tweak" than a full rebuild

  9. It's only been TWO GAMES (2).....


    Can we please hold off before we put either guy in the Hall of Fame?!?


    This is nothing more than Click Bait.      That's all.

    You need to stop your poor attitude


    They are HOF!!



    Obviously the OP isnt saying HOF...........


    I am excited about these two, but lets see what happens the rest of the year

  10. Na man Mewhort needs to stay at RT. He's playing very well and looks like he can be top at the position. We're fine at LT and RT. What we gotta do is find some guards. And I would see how Good looks at guard for one thing, he may be an answer to one of the guard spots. But for this year our best choice would be starting Reitz at LG. Him playing next to Castanzo would help him out a lot too. If we had a better interior O-Line, and Pep would start being more open minded with play calling it'd make all the difference in the world. Your right we need to start throwing some short passes, screen passes, and looking to the TE's more.  And also I agree with you on the FB thing. It'd be amazing to have a true FB on this team. That would help a lot right there.

    I think this is FULLY the answer!

  11. I am not advocarting a mid season coaching change




    If we lost Sunday.............  


    It COULD very well happen



    We arent ready for game one


    We arent ready for game two


    If we arent ready for game three??????

  12. Can they?   They sure didn't do much of it last week.  And they won't be doing it against Revis.


    There better be more of a scheme to help guys get open instead of simply relying on them to win there matchup one on one.


    Luck HAS to find the open spot, when they blitz (They will)


    To me this is mostly a timing issue


    Luck didnt have it last week with his WRs


    When they send 7 guys... someone is open


    Luck needs to just slow down


    We also need to run some draws and screens, (AND THEN BLOCK the second line) that will slow the blitzes down 

  13. Good I think can be a great back up to either tackle


    I do think that Reitz needs to move IMMEDIATELY to LG



    He has the power to push the pile




    I truly dont understand the love for Mewhort at Left Guard and the constant clamoring for his return there.


    If you watched the games, Mewhort did a very good job at pass protect at the left G position




    He was a liability in the run game...... he NEVER pushed the pile, he could never open a hole


    He was a HUGE contributing factor to our run game being a joke



    As a Guard, he needs to be able to move a 310-350Lb DT or NT out of the way

    (He couldnt)


    As a Tackle, he needs to be able to move a 245-295lb OLB or DE out of the way........ This he can do





    I appreciate the love for the guy at LG...... but I dont see it ever happening


    He will a be an excellent RT

  14. There are two positives to Mewhorts performance. As said above, Tackles are harder to find than Guards, and it looks like we may have found our 2 tackles. With that being said, no one is likely to reach on a guard in the NFL draft next year unless that guy is an incredible talent. We may be able to pick a mid-first round talent in the end of the 1st round if he's a guard. I wouldn't mind doing this and leaving Mewhort at RT if he continues to perform well. You can't do this the opposite as the Tackles in the 1st round will be drafted quickly.

    I would draft 2 guards next year...  we need them


    Our future talent at guard IS NOT on this team

  15. Finding a good tackle is MUCH harder than finding a good Guard


    Mewhort isnt going back to LG.........


    I believe he will just keep getting better (Hope)


    You can see the progression already



    The line looked worse, because Buffalo would send 6-7 guys every play as blitzers


    No line can consistently look good in that world



    Our bigger problem at Buffalo was the WRs not getting separation AND Luck being WAY off the mark


    It will get better as we game plan for this stuff

  16. Lets see


    The Colts DL is completely different from last year.... and actually played better than any line combination from last year.

    (They will only get better as they work together in game situations)


    The OL is different from last year. They werent awesome, but unless I am mistaken, Luck was hit LESS than any

    individual game last year. This was agianst a top 3 DL.

    (They will only get better as they work together in game situations)


    The WRs have changed. Its common knowledge that we impoved the total WR corps. On the number one passing team last year.

    (They will only get better as they work together in game situations)


    In total, we had half of the DBs not in normal spots, due to injury and new FA and Geathers learning his spot

    We finally have a "revis like" CB, that can shut down the other teams best WR

    (We should only get better as health improves and they learn to work together in game situations) 


    Luck had one of his worst games as a pro, if not the worst.  He was inconsistent, and he was not on target

    He has shown numerous times that after a bad game, he comes back with a solid game.

    Does anyone really believe that he will be this bad the rest of this season???

    (As the new WRs sync up with Luck, and he SHOULD improve from a disaster, we should get better)


    I believe our Kicker and punter are both upper echelon.


    I do worry about our return game....... JUST LEAVE VARGA out there...... tell them to NOT field the punt when they are on the friken 5 yard line.........


    I do worry that we have inferior ILBs right now........  I want to like the ILBs, but I think that they just dont fit the bill

    The positive here, is that I believe that we have the starters in reserve, that will at LEAST play as well as what we 

    have today.  Probably improve!


    I do worry that we couldnt generate any pass rush. This is unnerving, we need Mathis in a big way. Other than Mathis coming back, I dont see the improvement year to year.  Cole needs to step it up.


    So... to me.... the worries are ILB and pass rush... the starters to be are already on the team as subs for the ILB spots........ the one place I dont believe that we have fully addressed (or have a future answer for) is pass rush



    Yep...... I think we will miss the playoffs..... NOT!

  17. Crazy title........ right?



    My point is, the blitz came on Sunday.... and we were unprepared.


    Quick, very accurate timing plays can usually defeat the blitz



    It was clear to me that the WRs and Luck were not on the same page


    Lucks passes were enough off, that we couldnt exploit these opportunities


    This is an early season problem that we will improve on (Supposedly Luck is the best in the NFL against

    a blitz.......  )


    Give this some time.......  You may see some of these blitzs practiced this week from our defense

    in expectation of the Jets doing the same



    I think Luck will get his timing and on field communications down with the WRs and TEs and we

    will be able to beat people that bring this apporach
