    Thats all you can hope for. Suck it up. Be accountable (even if you don't think its reasonable) and move on.

    Re: Burgess: Not mad just disappointed in me

    I agree with what other's have said. I'd like to add too (imho) it's the kind of attitude this team needs - especially publically.

    For all the flack he's received on this board Derrek has just shown us all that he can be a true Patriot after all.
    Now go play lights out football, kid. I know you're capable.

    If he makes an impact on the game I think a lot of people will see this as the first sign of Burgess turning it around. But talk is cheap. As you just said Derrick, show us with your actions, on Sunday.

    At least he recognizes he needs to step up and isn't pointing fingers. As long as he's with the team I'll root for him to be successful. There are 4 games left for him to do his talking on the field

    If only that piece of **** Adalius was man enough to say the same thing.

    I agree, I at least think more of him than a bad apple.

    Re: Burgess: Not mad just disappointed in me

    Exactly. Being accountable and taking responsibility is a first step. AD flunked that one. Burgess shows a lot more maturity.

    Now if he can only perform on the field. Sounds like a quality guy, but he's been a major disappointment so far this year given what we gave up and the expectation of what he could bring to the pass rush.

    Re: Burgess: Not mad just disappointed in me

    In the movie SPR, Upham carried ammo to everyone ,spoke German, and was pretty useless other than that, Burgess can say all the right things, but if he can't do a better job, then he too is useless.

    I guess it's a hell of alot better than clownface whining about kindergarten.

    In undermining the coach and failing to accept responsibility, AD may prove to be worse than useless.

    Re: Burgess: Not mad just disappointed in me

    We'll thats the key. Hes saying the right things. I just hope its not lip-service to the media and fans.

    In seeing him play, my impression is that hes not loafing out there, but his game has more holes than origionally thought. Hes not a great tackler. Limited pass rushing moves. Doesnt go in to coverage. It simply may be that he has lost his burst. Wish I had the answers to his lack of productivity.

    gotta love that response, sincere or not. At least it means he's with the program and not ready to mutiny like AD.

    i think this is a big shot against AD than anything else. What burgess does on the field is immaterial but AD is isolated now .But idont think he cares anyway...

    I agree on all counts. Burgess has said that he's not about to join the mutiny, and it gives me some warm fuzzies about the locker room environment that has been diminishing somewhat.

    Well, we have something in common. I'm disappointed in Burgess as well. Not for being late, but for his performance.
