    Currently we have three. I anticipate that, by the time we get to ten (Vince is safe...I think), the Pats will have secured a first-round bye.

    1) TBC

    2) Ninkovich

    3) Meriweather

    I guess we currently have two, as TBC is seeing less reps in favor of Cunningham. Anyway, that's a good thing.

    An interesting hobby. I'd get your depression meds early though, enough of our gloomy guses assessments and you'll need them. ;)

    Oh, feel free to add quotes as appropriate. I'm going to heed Box's advice and go fill my meds.

    Surely we can't count Meriweather, he's only the worst safety in the league. He looks like a HOF'er next to the other two.

    On Mayo:

    Wilhite and Butler are starting where they belong.

    On the bench.

    What have Wilhite and Butler done this year?

    If Bodden was healthy, Mcourty and Bodden would have been the starting CB tandem and I guarantee you NE would have a better Pass defense today.

    Not those other two $hitbums.

    I think if we had any kind of rush consistently, we'd be better off. Put me down in the TBC column.

    Oh my, there is quite the list with this loserish, subpar organization, isn't there.

    Rob Ninkovich
    Tully Banta-Cain
    Kyle Arrington
    Darius Butler
    James Sanders (when we suck enough for him to start)
    Ron Brace
    Dan Connolly
    BenJarvus
    Terrence Wheatley
    Jonathan Wilhite

    At one point or another, all of these guys were your typical cheap, boring underperforming, choking, weak, low-rate scum of the earth Belichickian "starters" who couldn't make the custodial unit of a UFL team. It's no surprise that we haven't locked up the division yet if this is the best "talent" Belicheap can scrape together. We need to fire this schmuck and get a real football coach, like Mike Singletary.

    it's like BB went to the local scrubbery to find the guys on this team.

    Looking like those complaints about Butler are still valid. The guy needs to turn it around.

    I actually liked ninko, arrington, and connolly b4 the season started. I liked arrington for st though and didnt expect him to play corner this well. But for me you can add guyton and pryor to the crap list.

    He's been a very solid contributor for years, but he's never been to the Pro Bowl. Throw Mike Wright on to the List.

    I believe it is Ochmed Jones who has also been on the Mayo Bashing Bandwagon.

    Yeah. Mayo is almost as bad now as Lawyer Milloy was his last season with the Pats.

    Agreed. I'm pretty sure he's been listed as a worst starter at one point when he was trying to help fill the Seymour gap.

    While Ninkovich made 3 nice plays in Miami, that's about all you're going to get from him.

    I still stand by my opinion of Ninkovich because he is horrible against the run.

    He's not the long term answer for the Pats.

    As for Mayo, I've accepted him for what he is - a player who racks up tackles and that's about it.

    But don't take it the wrong way about what I said about Mayo.
