    THere's nothing new here and they say exactly the same thing. He's more like an obsessed fan than a reporter IMO. Vinatieri says he didn't give the Pats a chance to match so what did Felger want them to do? I'd also like to know why whenever a player leaves, the media has to keep asking if the team called that player? Does every free agent that leaves call the team to thank them? I doubt it.

    Just more reason to think Felger is following in Borges's footsteps..very plain to see...

    Just like Borges became nasty when they traded away Bledsoe, it looks like Felger is becoming like that because they didn't re-sign Adam. Let it go Felger.

    In BB we trust. I just keep telling myself Vinatieri was 4/8 in Field Goals over 40 yards last year, and hasn't hit a 50 yarder in a few years.

    Old news.

    Adams gone, can't change it.

    Felgers morphed into Borges-like, opinionated crybaby.

    Don't need to read useless articles.

    So I don't even bother.

    Felger started his question, "Correct me if I'm wrong," BB quickly interjected, "I can't wait--"

    I've moved on from Vinatieri. Thanks for the memories, now on with the 06 season and the 06 team.

    As in " better a year too early than a year too late" especially if that player has a greater sense of his value (and cost/salary) to the team than the front office and coaching staff do. Somebody should tell him to get over it. This stuff happens and players are grown up who make decisions. Adam chose to move on and didn't give the Pats a chance to match it. He obviously didn't want to be here anymore regardless of what you, me Felger or anybody thinks.
    Thanks for the memories Adam and good luck except when you play the Patriots.

    This guy is turning into a real asshat. The lazy malcontents at the Herald basically ran the same article twice (as BF just pointed out), the first one in straight Q&A form, and the second "article" was just a narrative based on the same interview.

    Check this out, from the "article":
    No he didn't. From Felgie's own interview:
    He never answered Felgie's question in the affirmative, or said himself that staying with the Patriots was a priority. Although, that's obviously what Felger was digging for. And if you tell me that "I didn’t really think about wanting to go anywhere else" is the same as saying your first priority is staying, then you're soft in the head. ;)

    Loved this one as well: (regarding AV's cap hit)
    Yet in the interview, AV said himself that he did NOT give the Patriots a chance to match the Indy offer. But let's not let a silly little thing like facts get in the way of a good opinion peice. :rolleyes:

    I was surprised he admitted that, got to give him credit for being honest I guess. Once we didn't Franchise him, he was never coming back. I think we all suspected that at the time and now we know it.

    By all that is holy...MICHAEL FELGER SHUT THE F UP and go away!!! :mad:
    Come back when you morph back into a legit sportswriter. What a moron.
    The guy signed with the Colts how long ago? I could understand if all this outrage was over the loss of Brady or Seymour. But with all due respect to AV, he was not and is NOT, I repeat NOT more valuable to this team than Brady and Seymour.
    Come on, we are talking about a KICKER for cripes sake!! Yes he was clutch, but so was the QB who consistently put him in field goal range when it counted. :mad:

    I thought the same thing - Felger's worst enemy is Felger... he can't remember what he wrote and then contradicts himself!

    exactly...Adam is gone, Willie is gone, David is gone...that is life Felger, you have to deal with the facts dude, I am loyal to one football organization, Mr Kraft, BB and SP are doing their best, they evaluate and based upon numbers make a decision ... we got Brady, Branch, Watson, Seymour, Bruschi, we got an aweful lot of talent and although you need a short memory in football, the boys will remember last year going forward. I am stoked for the new year, with some new blood....it's gonna be great!!!

    Felger is an emotional and obsessed fan who happens to write for a newspaper. He's not exactly capable of deep thought on any particular topic, as far as I've ever seen.

    Well newbie you've come to the home base for emotional and obsessed Pats fans - some of whom also write for public consumption even if not for big market dailies. I bet you will find some of them very annoying, while others - perhaps those who share your opinions on one topic or another - will appear to you to be deep thinkers. :rolleyes:

    BTW Felger is an emotional and obcessed Packers fan, born and raised. He is though a fairly stalwart convert to Belioli. Unlike so many of the other locals who have never converted from either Sullivanism, Tunaism or in the extreme Raiderism. But just because you convert or were born a believer doens't mean you don't still reserve the right to question from time to time. ;)

    Newbie. Heh.

    Maybe technically. I used to be involved here before the big changeover or whatever. I've been on various Pats boards, on and off, since the mid-90s.

    I'm definitely aware of Felgie's predilictions, and duplicitous pond scum references by Mannix, and 73-0 predictions by Borges, and that Cafardo is rapidly becoming Borges partner in idiocy.

    Mike Reiss and Tom Curran are where it's at for a balanced and thoughtful analysis of the situation. Felgie may be a Belioli convert, but he's also a hyper-emotional knucklehead.

    I agree...reserving judgement is one thing..and I think ALL Patriot fans wonder..and there are question marks..always is in the off season. AND that is legitimate...But it is if he (as an obsessed Packer fan) was dissing Lombardi as the Packers were winning championships. It is that stupid and dumb!! And this AV situation is so so stupid..everyone has gone on..understands that AV really did NOT wish to be here..and Felger knows but sinstead decides to keep hammering at the organization...(More press for me..) But what does this tell you about him?? He is not a great writer or anyone whose opinion I care about. There WAS a time when he wasn't bad..a year ago..longer..but now?? He's an idiot..and one who is put opportunist..although, I would say for what?? The real football fan knows he's a sham..it is just the MOR fan who thinks writers are gods.

    Here's what I want to ask Felger about his new-found kicking obsession:

    When Jim Kelly had 3 timeouts, the 2-minute warning, and a 30-yard run from Thurman Thomas, why did Norwood get all the blame for missing a long kick? Answer: because kickers are EXPECTED to make those kicks, when they don't it's called choking and they get their ass fired.

    If AV goes to the HoF, he better thank Scott Norwood for CHOKING, and Kelly for the butcher job he did on that drive...Kelly was recently on Stephen A Smith and said the Pats basically have a dynasty because "they made a few kicks" -- Smith of course let him get away with that and I was throwing sht at my TV.

    another myth Felger needs to retire: comparing kickers to closers.
    One slight difference: a closer doesn't just have to put a ball through a rectangle -- there's acutally a hitter involved in the process too...and last time I checked, closers throw MULTIPLE potentially game-determining pitches -- and do so throughout a season.

    And will Felger ever get a grip on that Oakland kick? If AV needed to repeat that kick, even he'd admit he probably wouldn't make it...face it, if we ever need that kick again, we're screwed...whether Adam is here or not.

    Now the good news: We still have the player who made 20 passes in Q4-OT despite the blizzard...but was overshadowed by a lucky kick.
