    FT = Football Topic

    Nice article about last years draft:

    http://www.patriots.com/news/index.cfm?ac=latestnewsdetail&pid=19375&pcid=41

    I like the part:

    Nick Kaczur - When Matt Light went down in Pittsburgh and was lost for the season, a little-known offensive tackle from Toledo was asked to come in and take over one of the most important jobs in all of sports: protect Tom Brady’s blind side. All Kaczur had to do over the next 13 weeks was face the likes of Dwight Freeney, Jason Taylor, Aaron Schobel, John Abraham, Patrick Kerney, Trevor Pryce and Simeon Rice. That would be a tall order for a veteran offensive tackle, so it’s no wonder Patriots fans feared for Brady’s life. But once the season ended, a case could have been made that Kaczur was the Patriots most important selection in last year’s draft.


    ATA BOY Nick!

    good article. Surprisingly ultra-positive considering it's Casale. He tends to be a bit more reigned in than we are, and his write-up is practically gushing.

    Holy cow, how bad is the off-season board chatter getting if we have to specify "Football Topic" in the title?? :D
