    Fun to watch, too. Without hiccups by Benjamin Watson and Wes Welker, we'd have seen football's version of a perfect game instead of, well, a no-hitter. The only person not blown away by Brady's dart-throwing exhibition -- it established the all-time record for completion percentage, postseason and regular season -- was Jaguars rookie cornerback Reggie Nelson. Becoming the latest dummy to take shots at New England, Nelson said, ``Anyone can go 26 of 28 in a dropdown game.''

    Dropdown meaning, dink and dunk.

    No wonder the Pats didn't do more to go after this guy in the draft this year. They said at the time that, despite his physical talent, they had doubts about his intelligence.

    Go figure.

    Whatever. They can pump up their chests about stopping Moss if it makes them feel better. They didn't stop anyone else. Now they can go home and STFU.

    I just posted this in the Tom Brady thread, but yeah, saying "anyone can" when um, no one ever has, does make you look like a dummy.

    I'll give him a pass as a rookie frustrated after a playoff loss.

    Honestly, Reggie Nelson is still learning a lot. He's going to be a solid Defensive back in the NFL and has shown signs of brilliance (and signs of needing improvement)... He's still a Rookie, so I expect him to make immature statements like that. Give him two to three more years and let him settle down. Picking on the Rookie and saying he "speaks" for the whole defense is a little absurd.

    Moss is reaction when he was told about that comment was priceless.

    Brady could have thrown 26 out of 28 with his dick and those Jaguar defenders would not have been impressed

    Don't let sore losers bother you....

    One of the reporters said that some of the defensive players of the Jaguars commented that they were not impressed with Brady's performance. Moss was dumbfounded when he was told. Now maybe the reporter was trying to stir things up by making it sound like multiple players said that. It wouldn't be the first time. Rookie or not, it's still a stupid comment. And I have the right to pick on him. It's my messageboard. :snob:

    Sorry, but that doesn't wash.

    The Patriots have rookies also. However, they extensively educate their rookies (and other players, Mr. Spicer) on how to conduct themselves with the press. It's just one more facet that sets the Patriots apart from the pack.

    Week after week, we get to see (and shake our heads in disbelief) at the stupid, unprofessional and just plain weird things opposing players say either before a game (great media strategy, Messrs. Spicer, Anthony Smith and FredEx) or after a game (Mr. Nelson - - you will now be ridiculed for the next 48 hours coast to coast and on Monday's PTI).

    Umm, yes I believe it does wash. He's a rookie, he came off an emotional game in which he lost, I expect that he'd have his emotions on his sleeves a little trying to grasp at something he did "good" during that game. That being said, he did play farely good during the game...

    Spicer is well, that "nut" that every team has... and no matter how much you coach someone, they are still people. Just like in parenting, you can tell them over and over what to do, but they still have to make the decisions. And trust me, Del Rio DOES stress respect and DOES respect the Patriots... Don't let Vic Ketchman and his "*" make you think everyone and their mom that associates with the Jaguars is disrespectful...

    I am not too familiar with the Jags front line but who is #90? - Look so big like he swallowed Moss whole which explains why Randy only got 14 yards all night,He couldn't escape :p

    The guy must weigh 375 pounds

    Actually, I think Ketchman is one of the most perceptive football analysts around. The asterisk business was very out of character for him.

    Onto your previous point, if Spicer played for the Pats he wouldn't have said those things. That IS something where BB says "the buck stops here". Evidently Del Rio doesn't. Your sentence "Just like in parenting, you can tell them over and over what to do, but they still have to make the decisions." - - I'm sorry, we can't relate to that here in New England. BB DOES control the team. Who controls the Jags?

    Rookie Brandon Merriwether in training camp this year made an innocuous comment praising WR Wers Welker in saying that he was getting great wxperience in practicde going up agaimnst one of best WR's in the NFL. The next day, in front of the entire team, BB ripped the poor kid a new one, by holding up the newspaper with his quote and saying "Who the hell is Brandon Merriwether to be saying this kind of crap? What kind of experience does ANY rookie have to be pontificating about the NFL. Shut up and keep your eyes and ears open."

    It's just a difference in organizational culture.

    Yea that's Grady Jackson, he's enormous... I had (jokingly) under things we need to do to win that ever "Legal" chance we had have Grady Jackson fall on Tom Brady. He's listed at 345 lbs, but we think that might be a little "fluffed."

    Jay Mariotti is my #1 least favorite sports writer/t.v. personality of all time. He is a complete a$$wipe and embodies everything that is terrible about sports media.

    Pure Bull! Reggie Nelson insulted the league MVP Tom Brady. The Patriots have a rookie free safety as well and I don't see Brandon Meriweather thumping his chest after the game during a locker room interview.

    Well I'm sorry, but it's stuff like that that I'm glad Del Rio isn't like Belicheck. That's just, in my opinion, a little cold and harsh... But then again, he does live and play in New England... The buck does stop with Del Rio, and I can promise you he is going to (or ALREADY has) have a talk with Reggie Nelson and Paul Spicer... He doesn't like public humiliating people and that is one philosophy that he has never subscribed to.

    Yea Vic is a good analyst, but I still hate how in one fell swoop he has ruined the perception of the whole team. There is a saying that goes something like this, "It only takes one bad call to erase a thousand good calls."

    *raises hands* Hey, I'm at the same feeling, I was just saying what he was "listed" as!

    You also forgot to add that he also ate the person weighing him, too.

    Woooaaa. BB NEVER humiliates player (his own or opposing) in public. Never. The Meriwether incident took place behind closed doors in a rookie squad meeting. The story leaked from a player who was cut.

    I don't buy your excuse for Del Rio. Spicer made his comments several times over 4 months. If Del Rio actually did as you state, then Del Rio wasn't being listened to by his player. But to each his own. You be happy with Del Rio, he seems like a good coach. I'm not sure a Randy Moss, Adalius Thomas or Rodney Harrison would accept below-market FA contracts to work with him like they did with BB, but I hear his players like him.

    Hey, I'm not saying what he did was right OR smart... Just because he isn't... what's the word I'm looking for? "Socially Intelligent" DOES NOT mean he isn't an intelligent football play. He has shown that he has a lot of potential, just needs some time under incubating a little... And needs to have a talk with Del Rio...

    I'm ashamed of Brady for "dinkn' & dunkn'" to the tune of 262 yards & 3 TD's. If I was in the Jaguars secondary, I say the same thing. Imagine how po'd they are after covering all the deep routes all night & watching guys catch passes underneath them:D

    *shrugs* I guess an outsider is the best person to make an indepth analysis on our Head Coaching postion, eh? *sarcasm*

    He's a great coach, just because he doesn't coach like Belichick (no offense, nor would I want him to) doesn't make him a terrible coach, mind you....

    That's the problem with the Jaguars, Del Rio allows bulletin board material to be posted before and after the game. Sour grapes, sore losers!
