    Wonder who that pats1 fellow is...;)

    But yes, I agree with Reiss' response. The #5 battle is down to Stone and Childress.

    I think that is the #4 battle, Jackson is a lock for 5.

    Everyone should read it, there's some great stuff in there. Not silly "I don't know" fluff unless he really doesn't know. Great answers (and good questions),

    He's just saying it would take a landslide for Gramatica to win, not that it has been a landslide.

    I think you've got your interpretation 180 degrees around - I understood him to mean Gramatica would have to be ahead by a landslide.

    Yeah I did read it wrong. That's what I get for trying to read two things at the same time. :rolleyes:

    Tremendous chat !

    This stood out for me:

    Other than Maroney and Thomas, is there any rookie who has really stood out so far?
    Mike_Reiss: Fifth-round pick Ryan O'Callaghan. He's had some work with the first unit at right tackle.


    Could the crystal ball i'm renting be wrong ... when it tickets O'CALlaghan for "IR"?

    " What are the Patriots going to do with all the money they are under the cap? It seems hard to justify to fans that pay the highest ticket prices in the league that Kraft is not forking over the dough. They could have used the money on Law or on Branch. What do you think?

    Mike_Reiss One thing about the salary cap, it's a bookeeping number, not an actual figure of how much the team spends. So a team could be up against the cap this year, but actually might have spent less than the Patriots because they have "dead money" on their cap. I think relating the unused cap space to the team being cheap is off the mark."

    perfect!

    Since the question applied to rookies, and only the three mentioned have taken 1st team reps with all the trainers occupied, don't trash your crystal yet.
