Honestly I have no personal issues with anyone here and usually don't even remember peoples user names, but some folks here seem to hold grudges against me for whatever reason and basically troll my threads. Ive never been the type to ever say "I told you so" but since I seem to get a lot of hate here, I just thought I'd remind you.....
Looks like Belichick at least agreed that Bequette is better value in the 3rd than Coples is in the 1st (we could've easily traded up if we wanted him). Funny how the Jets draft Coples and we draft Bequette. The same people who were hyping Coples are now calling him "Gholston 2.0" while some ppl who said they had no interest in Bequette are now saying they like the pick. Hilarious.
Trading Up (DL Melvin Ingram or Michael Brockers)
I basically say the Patriots should trade up and go for impact players since so many of our 2nds ended up as busts. Almost everyone flamed me or said BB would NEVER trade up.... well guess what, we traded up twice
. He didn't end up taking Ingram, but I did predict he would do something that almost everyone else said he never would. Looks like I was on the same page as BB again.
Chandler Jones or Andre Branch at #27?
Chandler Jones or Andre Branch? I said Jones 100%. Lots of posters didn't "get it" and would rather have Branch. Looks like I was on the same page as Belichick once again.
Help me with the Chandler Jones love
I was the first to say something positive about Jones here. Everyone else is lost. Now those same people are happy with the draft and have high hopes of Chandler being the next Willie McGinest.
Mayock Top 100!
Here I flat out say I want to draft Chandler Jones with our pick. Maybe BB is reading my posts? LOL...
Honestly Meriweather is medicore
I make a statement saying that Meriweather is mediocre. This was well before he got released. He even made the Pro Bowl that year! I got flamed to hell for this thread... but guess what? I was right.
Jermaine Cunningham - BUST
I call Cunningham a Bust before his rookie season even starts. Sure, I also said I wanted Jerry Hughes or Brandon Graham on our 34 defense, and they both busted also. But to be fair they both went to 43 teams so who knows how they wouldve turned out in our defense (which was a lot more 34 back then). Anyways...Cunningham has been a total bust so far. Zero Sacks. He's best known for kinda sorta
pressuring a Peyton pass in regular season. The fact that Cunningham didn't play at all last year says a lot.... and obviously BB agrees Cunningham is a bust since he just traded up for Jones and Hightower, and even drafted another replacement for Cunningham in the 3rd(Bequette). I won't be surprised if Cunningham is cut before this season starts.
Brandon Spikes Thread
On the opposite end, I say Spikes will be a beast. This post is almost dead on except for the dropping in coverage part (he does have a knack for INTs though). Right again.
Rob "The Invisible Man" Ninkovich - Worst Starter in the NFL?
I admit I was exaggerating a little, and Ninkovich isn't the worst starter.... BUT in my defense... He was very below average when that thread was made. He hadn't made any sacks or INTs back then, and looked lost at times. He has improved quite a bit since then. But at the end of the day... BB still traded up to get Hightower who will quickly replace Ninkovich and take over his role.
I may go against popular opinion. But Ive consistently been correct in my projections while the people bashing me have been wrong. Can I get a little respect next year when I talk about draft picks?
