    You don't know it. A dislocated kneecap is very painful. That guy is one hell of a tough guy if he played on it before it healed.

    I'm sure most NFL players are orthopedic cripples one way or another in their sixties-on. The way Welker gets pounded each game it wouldn't surprise me if he ends life in a wheelchair.

    For a guy recovering from a dislocated knee cap, he played exceptionally well in the second half of the season. I know everyone like to focus on the strip sack by Terrell Suggs and ignore the fact that Light neutralized Suggs for the rest of the game, but other than a few plays here and there Light played well this year.

    People are crazy who want to see this guy go. The line played best with him at LT and Vollmer at RT.

    He's on the wrong side of 30 and he's had that kind of injury, he needs to be replaced.

    Multiple time Pro Bowlers are usually above average players. Light has been an excellent left tackle for some time, and he was the team's best tackle this season, when healthy.

    Take away the extremists, and I don't think anyone is overrating him. He's a multiple pro bowler who plays a solid LT. I think we would have a harder time replacing him than keeping him, but that doesn't stop people from wanting run someone out on a rail.

    Even on that play I think Light had rid Suggs far enough up the field that Brady had plenty of room to step up and Brady didnt do that. That sack was on Brady

    Assuming Stephen Neal retires, move Nick Kaczur to RG where he's much better suited, extend or tender Mankins, and you have an starting OL of Light-Mankins-Koppen-Kaczur-Vollmer, with LeVoir, Ohrnberger, Connolly, Bussey and Wendell for depth. That's not a bad start. Add an OG and a developmental RT in the draft and we should be OK.

    That play was Kevin Faulk's fault. He should have chipped Suggs before going out on his pattern. Light froze a little bit inside expecting the chip and Brady assumed his backside was covered.

    100% true. The Pats have enough holes to fill without creating another one. Why would any knowledgeable Pats fan want to get rid of a solid player like Light?

    How do you know that Faulk was suppose to chip Suggs before going out for his pattern? Even if he was why would Light freeze, he would continue to block the way he normally would. Light did his job on this play, Brady didnt.

    Re: Light dislocated right kneecap

    Well, I sincerely hope injury is the sole reason Vollmer outperformed him this season.

    Then again, who knows how quickly he'll start to deteriorate as his body clicks on its eleventh season of professional play.

    I'm absolutely fine with Matt Light coming back next season. He can still get the job done. He does struggle with speed rushers at times, but I'm not sure if I can point out one LT who doesn't. I was tough on Light earlier in the season (especially after what Schobel did to him in Week 1) but he's earned my respect.

    Light and LT and Vollmer at RT would be pretty solid. Vollmer will get used to the right side, especially getting more reps than ever at that side in training camp, preseason games etc, something he didnt get this season
