    He sounds like he has been here forever....

    Paraphrase: when asked if he was motivated to get back to the pro bowl he basically said that didn't matter he just wants to help the team win.

    When asked what position he would play he said what ever the coach tells me.

    Burgess will see more than situational downs. He will be the primary OLB opposite AD.

    Does anybody know what # he will wear? I'm guessing he will keep his 56 since he wore it in Philly and Oakland.

    I don't mean to be a downer, but he really didn't seem to enthused in this interview. He seems to just be gowing through the motions.

    Sounds good then. I'm hoping that he is happy to be in NE and his play shows it.

    Well, then cut him right away. If a player can't get pumped up after his first practice of the season, why even keep him on the team.

    I don't even know what to say about this response. I never in any way insinuated anything with my post. What an overreaction . . . I guess you're trying to be funny, though. You get an E for effort.;)

    Based upon his manner and demeanor, he's not an "interview" kind of guy. He's a football player.

    Not everybody is made for dealing with the media.

    He didn't knock the Raiders either. That's an upstanding guy.

    Why are fans assuming that Burgess will step right in as a starter opposite Thomas? That's unrealistic... Admittedly, he'd said he's behind, has little experience playing at outside linebacker and is joining a new team. All things a fan could observe based on what you've read or already know about him as a player. He's a former two-time Pro Bowl selection but I believe that was as a DE. He's older and will be playing for a new contract. Certainly, the motivation is there to begin with. That's good.

    I expect him to eventually start full-time at some point during the regular season. But that decision will come only when Burgess has demonstrated to Belichick that he has fully grasped the defensive play book. These things take time depending on the individual, of course.

    From the interview, he seems like an intelligent (and perceptive) player and person, but appeared somewhat restless. But then, most players probably would prefer to focus on football and avoid the press if they can help it. No one really enjoys having microphones and tape recorders seemingly thrust near your mouth, sports journalist hanging onto your every words and reactions. It can become irksome after a while, you desire to conclude it. So I don't have a problem with how he'd handled this interview. He did well. He even injected humor at one point. Some of the questions were redundant. He likely heard them beforehand just by picking up a newspaper.

    I know, right? From what I've seen from this interview, he's definitely not going to fit in here. :rolleyes:

    He was a lot more comfortable at the start of the interview, and the repetitive questions trying to get him to badmouth Oakland killed his enthusiasm. You can tell this guy listened when he was coached on how to talk to the media. He said all the right things, and didn't say any of the wrong things. I think this guys gonna make a good Patriot.

    He's making the right "first impression." Here's hoping he's healthy and makes a difference.

    for those who think he isn't motivated -- he's a 30+ yr old guy in the last year of his contract, rolling into a potentially uncapped year.
