Santiago added to the injury report....
Sublime meet ridiculous..
I think it is time that they use a strong disinfectent on the Patriots locker room. Obviously whatever we have, its contagious.
Well, this is one of the few injuries that makes sense to me. He's been on the shelf since training camp, coming into one of the more physical practicing teams out there. 2+2=4.
One time, this kid asked me the meaning of irony...
this is quite comedic ..someone passes a physical, signs and ends up on the injury report
Now we know why he hasnt been picked up by anyone.
Seems like he's really shot himself in the foot.
This has to be Josh McDaniels' fault somehow. How can it not?
Scott Pioli is having a run of bad luck. Only three short years ago,
he was hailed as a boy genius for signing Rodney Harrison, Tyrone Poole,
and Rosevelt Colvin.
You're comparing offseason FA signings with in season off the street pickups?
That doesn't make a whole lot of sense.
He had a decent offseason in acquisitions. Both Junior Seau and Reche Caldwell were good pick ups. Artrell Hawkins last year was a good pick up. Maroney, O'Callahan, and Gostkowski have played big roles this season. Last year's draft produced Mankins who is becoming an upper tier guard, Kazcur although he is taking a step back this year, and Ellis Hobbs who was pretty good before he broke his hand and probably will be good after he is healed.
It hasn't been all bad for Pioli.
Actually, Jesus and Angel are two totally separate boxers. Somewhere. I guarantee it.
Sorry that I haven't learned to punch on a post to reply. I'm one of those
computer illiterates who used a slide rule during his college days.
I find it difficult to comprehend how the front office has done a good job
by replacing Branch, Givens, and Patten with Caldwell, Gabriel, and Gaffney,
by replacing Johnson, McGinest, and Phifer with Beisel, C. Brown, and
Seau, and by replacing Law and Poole with C. Scott and Starks.
With regard to the draft, the Pats have had their ups and downs.
Mankins is a good player. Hobbs and Kazur have had a sophomore slump.
Maybe they will rebound next year. Maroney looks very good. Chad Jackson
has been a disappointment. O'Callallaghan and Gostowski show some promise.
The trouble is that there is very little room for error since Miami and the Jets
are coming fast.
Hobbs and Kazcur are coming off injuries. It is hard to give them bad grades because Hobbs is playing with a cast and Kazcur missed all of training camp and a large chunk of the season.
Before Seau went down with his injury, he was more productive than McGinest has been.
Jackson is a rookie WR and to judge him at this point is premature. I didn't expect much from him this year. Gostkowski and O'Callahan have exceeded my expectations.
We lost Law mid-way through the 2004 season and won a Super Bowl with Samuel and Gay playing CBs. I don't know if Starks or Scott really replaced Law because Law was already gone.
In fairness to Pioli and Belichick, Beisel and Chad Brown were never supposed to replace Ted Johnson. Ted Johnson unexpectedly retired at the start of the season.
Pioli and Belichick haven't had great years the past two years, but they weren't disaster either.
Just wondering why we didn't have a WR or two on the practice squad.
Anyone play any collage ball still in shape?
My view since 2004...
Drafts = good (well above average)
FA = Below average
Hurt putting on his uniform? His nickname has got to be Baby Jesus.
But he should be good for our Hail Mary.
You're thinking of some center fielder who also throws like Mary, but worst of all, acts like Judas.
I always knew God was a Patriots fan. This explains the snow angels as well!
