New guy here from Maryland. Born and raised in central CT, but left for the military in 1993 and never moved back. Been a Pats guy all my life. I don't know why I never took the time to get involved here, but I hope to change that. Some "quick hits" to add something for you guys to respond to: - I was a Brady guy over Bledsoe. - I think we franchise Cassel and trade him away from the AFC. I have full faith an confidence in Belichick, Pioli, and the scouts to think that if Brady isn't ready, O'Connell can take the helm for a bit. - Pioli is probably gone (to the Browns is my guess), and that sucks. - Troy Brown and Tedy Bruschi are the textbook definitions of outstanding football players as well as people. - Josh McDaniels might be gone to HC somewhere this offseason, and I won't shed a tear. If I see one more draw out of the shotgun on 3rd and 8, I'm going to vomit.
