  1. Pats fan here: I actually kind of like Bowles. I think he probably needs more experience on the offensive side of the ball, as well as a couple years of seasoning, but I think he could turn into a solid HC. I think HCs do need to have some struggles in their first go around before they truly come into their own. Bill needed to go through the Cleveland experience to become the coach he is today. I believe Josh McDaniels will be a good HC some day. Pete Carroll had his adventures with a number of teams, as you well know, before he achieved success in SEA. What does that mean in the short term for Bowles? Absolutely nothing.
  2. Gave up reading the rest of the thread. My only response: basically every reputable scientist who looked at Exponent's report tore it to shreds. Exponent exists solely to manufacture data for businesses who already know the result they want to reach, usually for use in litigation (or propaganda). Even if you never took middle school science classes, and knew nothing about football, knowing the source of the data alone should be concerning.
  3. Edelman is a constant sh*t talker. Obviously I'm biased, but I think it is hilarious when a LB blows him up on a crossing route and he immediately pops up and starts jawing in the face of a big scary dude who is twice his size. If an opposing team's fans wanted to hate on him, I would have expected more hate for his tendency to deliver pretty crushing blocks to defenders who aren't looking at him (the same way Hines Ward got similar hate), regardless of whether the blocks are legal. The little dude throws his body around the field like a mad man. I'm surprised he hasn't gotten more injuries/concussions, given the way he willingly plays.
  4. I'm actually less concerned about Brissett than I am about the second half pass defense.
  5. Are you suggesting that the PIG is RIPE for the SLAUGHTER?
  6. The fish have a pretty mediocre secondary. I think that is the lesson here.
  7. Something something pig something ripe something something
  8. I haven't posted here consistently for years. I'm glad THE PIG IS RIPE is still a thing.
  9. If you're looking for depth, that he can definitely provide.
  10. There was no physical. Most recent reports are that he didn't even travel to Philly. Kline had shoulder surgery, but he was in camp this year and played in the preseason games. Really the issue is that he is just a pretty average guy. A solid backup at all interior line spots, able to start and not be a complete disaster, but someone you're always looking to improve from. Note how many guards the Pats have picked up in the last two off seasons. If you have a very bad interior OL, Kline will help. But he isn't some sort of all-world road grader.
  11. Knighton was just not playing well in what little we saw of him. His main claim to fame was he was supposed to be able to anchor the middle on run defense, but he was being handled 1 on 1 by lesser offensive linemen. A couple of the young DL were clearly outperforming him in camp and the first couple preseason games.
  12. Not only has it happened a number of times in the last decade, it is possible that it could happen for multiple teams this season. The NFC East isn't exactly a bunch of world beaters this season, and Denver could be starting a rookie with an amazing defense to help.
  13. Did you not see the Pats make a near comeback last week? No lead is ever safe. I don't want my offense to stop trying to score until the other team forfeits. Once the Texans stop trying, then the Patriots can stop.
  14. Announcers are hammering both teams... rightly so.
  15. He's been all over every team's forum that the Pats have played so far this season. Generally has been unwelcome in most of those places.
