Super Bowl chat with Greg A. Bedard - Extra Points - Boston.com
A worthwhile read....especially his takes on the off season roster build. His take is so in line with my point of view, we may be twins
-"That's why I think the likely scenario is to play nice with Welker, let him set his value on the open market and then make a decision. But I think Talib will be the first order of business this month and into March. Still, if I'm him I go to market.
-"The fact that Vollmer can play left and right tackle will send his value through the roof."
-"I think they should forget about Reed and get a good enforcer next to him(McCourty)"
-"Personally, I don't see Cannon as a tackle -- and I know some in the organization agree with me "
-"The Patriots have to figure out a way to be more explosive in the pass game to setup the run."
-"They need upgrades to Lloyd"
-"Not very(comfortable with Cannon at RT). I'd rather draft a right tackle and plug him in. Deep tackle draft."
-"The linebackers, outside of Mayo who was great this year, are slow....They can use more athletes there"
-"But the more I saw of Hernandez on the outside, the less I was a fan of that."
-"I think Belichick thought it would be a low-scoring game and he was right. It's just he didn't expect his offense to suck."
-" I think the Patriots have to think hard if Lloyd is giving them what they need at X to win a title. and he has an $3 million option bonus coming up soon. "
