    Didn't Lovie also say once that he doesn't think Mankins will ever leave New England? Seems kinda contradictory.

    Covering his behind. Very close to tampering.

    No Jersey Selected

    Cool! After we do this, we can simply plug Dan Connolly in at LG and watch as the same things that have plagued our offense in the last three playoff games we've participated in continue to happen. And yes, I know that Mankins was a part of the first mentioned playoff game, but none of the O-Line had a good game in that Super Bowl. He's played EXTREMELY well in the last two. Against the Jets, he, Light, and Vollmer were the only three on the O-Line that played well. Mankins must be re-signed.

    I don't believe this rumor for a second.

    Mankins, good riddance. Watch the pats pick up a guard like moffett from wisconsin...plug and play and have the same or BETTER output.

    Agreed! If so the Pats will have to franchise him Feb 10-24 to lock him up, and gain time to negociate. Mankins and Vollmer are the only pieces we have to the new OL, with maby Light for 2 more years. Mankins goes nowhere for at least oe more year.

    They overpaid like hell for Cutler. If they do the same for Mankins, I'm up for it.

    I was thinking the same thing. It's funny tho, you read what these other head coaches say in print, then take a step back and imagine BB saying the same thing.
    In BB We Trust.

    It IS tampering. Just read that quote. It couldn't be more obvious. I'm astounded that a Head Coach would say something like that before a player becomes a free agent.

    I would love it if they could dump this guy for a 2nd even. Anything better than a 3rd round comp. pick.

    Dump this guy? You make it sound like he's a pariah. Fact is, he's very well liked in the locker room and probably top 7 player on the team.

    Did Lovie Smith say Mankins comes to work everyday? Hahahahaha. Guess he wasn't paying much attention this season.

    I never realized until i read this thread that a top 5 gaurd who starts from day 1 so very easy to find.I think then BB does need alot of blame for not replacing Neal when he was so injured and DAN when all he had to do is draft a guy who will have better production than Mankins for the right side.
