    Re: Karen Gurgleburger: Article on the Tullinator.

    That was a good thing to note. I remember about two years ago BB was asked about the progress of James Sanders (I think), and he said the most impressive thing about Sanders was that he worked hardest at the things he wasn't good at, and was developing into an all-around safety. BB then made a general comment that "it's easy to practice what you're good at."

    Not saying that rushing the passer and STs are easy, and TBC "is what he is" at this point moreso than Sanders, but I'm a little worried TBC sees himself as just a specialist, given that we almost always have at least one bad injury at OLB every year.

    Is that actually her last name? If so, congradulations on making it through elementary school with a shred of dignity left.

    No, but my revision is more entertaining and easier to remember.

    Ah. See, caffine intake has been minimal for me this morning, ole synapses aren't exactly firing at the moment. Nice work through. It seems like something a morbidly obese person would do to cure a sore throat.

    Glad to see Ian Anderson is on the team.

    He's not the kind you have to wind up on Sunday.

    Re: Karen Gurgleburger: Nice interview with the Tullinator.

    I believe that the Herald occasionally has decent Pats output, but unwritten code since the betrayal would have us belittle the paper and its associates at every turn.

    And so I have done my duty.

    Do you guys think TBC has the tools to become more than a role-player? He's not old yet and if he is able to work hard (maybe his foray into the land of suck will help his motivation), he could become an every down back, like he mentions. Could he compete? I never saw him play, to my knowledge.

    In short... No. The very definition of JAG.

    Re: Karen Gurgleburger: Nice interview with the Tullinator.

    We have never had a OLB develop in our system. tully had had a better career till now then mike vrabel had at his age. so if this question was asked at the same point of his career on vrabel people would have want him cut.

    i think the way some one compares a top 10 pick OLB to these UDFA guys is unreasonable.

    so the answer maybe ?.He was horrible against the run and he has the size so maybe this 2 yrs has motivated him to develop better skills and be effective at the point of attack.

    Re: Karen Gurgleburger: Nice interview with the Tullinator.

    My first thought was: there actually exists a person with the name Gurgleburger?
    My second thought was: at the age of 21 why didn't she immediately get a legal name change?
    My third thought (after checking the article) was: Your headline is a LIE, her name is actually listed as Guregian.

    Gee, Tully.... ya guess, maybe, if you had really, really stepped up your game you wouldn't have been a role-playing spot duty guy to begin with?

    Excellent point.

    Re: Karen Gurgleburger: Article on the Tullinator.

    That's one of the things that makes me optimistic about Meriweather's continued progress. After his rookie year, when he couldn't catch a towel if it fell over his head, he spent a ton of time working out his hands in the offseason. Sophomore year, five interceptions. It's good to see.

    As for TBC being an everydown LB... in the short term, like a game or two, sure, he could be fine. If you're plugging him in for the year for a lost starter, I think he's going to be exposed by year's end.

    Incidentally, here was the press conference with BB where he mentions the way Sanders practices, from August '07:
