    Curran kills the Patriots thought process in his column today.


    April 23, 2010

    By Tom E. Curran
    CSNNE.com

    Patriots run the same old corner route



    FOXBORO - When the Patriots called to tell Devin McCourty they were drafting him, he was in the bathroom.

    And when the pick was announced, a parade of Patriots fans probably headed there. With their hand covering their mouths.

    Not another defensive back . . . why?

    Did he write this in a drive-thru? I lost count of the factual errors, logical fallacies and contradictions after the first few paragraphs.

    Kindle is reported to need surgery, why would he be a better pick?

    Reports say Dez isnt the sharpest tool in the shed, you think he'd be where he's supposed to be on the field when Brady throws him the ball? Anyone remember the speedy Galloway?

    Really?

    Curran isn't telling the truth. He's writing an OP ED piece. ANd yes, he's a sell out. He sold out as soon as he went to MSNBC., Where the hell have you been?

    What really disgusts me about Curran is his ripping of the Celtics. That's on talk-radio-caller level.

    On football he still makes at least a small attempt at objectivity -- e.g., contrast him to Borges.

    That said, he's forgetting about contract duration and so on when he includes Hobbs and Springs in the discussion. He's right that if the W-backs were better, McCourty wouldn't have been as attractive a pick. But the rest veers over the top.

    That said, I'd still like 2 OLBs, a DE, a TE, and a power RB by the end of Day 2, and that's not going to happen now.

    Boy... seeing how everyone is reacting to this pick, can you imagine how upset fans and the media would have been had Belichick taken Brady in the 1st round in 2000?

    It's too bad you need to be a Rhodes Scholar to catch passes for the Patriots. Ben Watson and his near perfect Wonderlic seemed to never be good enough, either.
    I am not saying we should have drafted Dez, but I chuckle every time the issue of WR intelligence = success in the Patriots offense comes up. There are only so many Mosses and Welkers - maybe we need to dummy it down so some other guys can help the team.

    I think your way overstating things, you dont have to be a Rhodes Scholar but you have to have some intelligence and be willing to work hard, things Dez apparently doesnt posess, per reports, or at least thats how the Pats felt after doing their due diligence.
    I dont think Moss or Welker or Branch are geniouses but are hard working and have football intelligence.
