    I doubt even that considering his postings (as reported here) after the SB. He certainly mentions all public news; his extra comments could either truly be that of an 'insider' or just his insight based on the same news that you or I read.

    Not that I don't find his comments interesting; I just do not know if they are truly those of an 'insider'.

    He claims that Belichick and much of the coaching staff had to meet with the league the Saturday before the Super Bowl to answer questions about Matt Walsh and the Rams' walkthrough.

    I still doubt he is really an insider, but it is fun to speculate. He did get the Meriweather to CB thing wrong. I think if they were seriously considering it, they wouldn't have spent so much effort in free agency or the draft to stock the position.

    My theory is it Bill Belichick. Who will for the entire year post accurate, insightful information that offers no real information that could be useful to an opposing team.

    For example the insider said nothing about what interest us the most Brady's injuries the teams assessment of Cassel.

    Then once he builds up a reputation for being an accurate and reliable insider by not only Patriot fans but scouts for opposing teams, in a critical playoff game he will post detailed information regarding an upcoming game plan that is false hoping the other team falls for it.

    IMHO its a good read.. And maybe the poster is putting us on but he does bring up an important point.. The goal is to compete year in and year out for a championship and you can't win them all. And the pats again are poised to make another run..

    What he means is from the owner down to the video guy were all being interviewed by the NFL on Saturday. That is the day the boston Herald story broke. I guess from what Kraft has said in the past it took several hours and really had an effect on the team.

    Making a run is really all we can ask for. I was thinking the other day: Since the 2001 season (7 years) the Patriots have:

    made the playoffs: 6-1
    won AFC championship: 4-1
    won Superbowl: 3-1

    I know every fan knows this, but it's really amazing in retrospect!

    A good read but this one really strikes me as being written by a fan.

    Well Marshall Faulk would disagree with you. According to him, this year we are really going to find out what kind of coach BB is. What a tooool!!!!!! Faulk is!!!!

    Jonathan Kraft was surprisingly candid on the radio pregame show before the Tampa game about the toll Spygate took on everyone, including the coaches and players, the day before the Super Bowl. Kraft added that he had a feeling before the game that the Pats might not win, and said that feeling was confirmed when Pierre Woods didn't come up with that fumble at a time the Patriots could have opened up a double-digit lead.

    Folks, this poster is known by the Patriots and has been investigated by their PR, from what I've heard. There's no way a Patriots employee would be writing this - believe me.

    And for that matter, I could have written all of this. The whole "Pats had no game plan, Tampa had a game plan" thing was talked about extensively on PFW in Progress this past week. And if you listen to that show, you'd also know that Shawn Crable's legs are a running joke.

    He's a fan. Get over it and stop copying whatever he posts like it's the freaking bible.

    Anyone who truly believes this guy is an actual "New England insider" has a lot of wising and/or growing up to do. Guys, seriously, his posts are, I suppose, fun reading, but you're embarrassing yourself.

    I posted it because people want to read what he writes. Personally, I think the guy is BS. It doesn't mean it isn't entertaining to discuss his posts.

    Sh*t man, Woods DID come up with the fumble. He was lying on the freaking turf and had the ball under him. The instant a Giant touched him he was down and the play was over. The refs blew that play so badly I sometimes wonder if they were paid off.

    Okay....calming down again....deep breaths....was last year....this is this year....I'm over it...I'm okay...really feel better now....very calm.....completely relaxed.....no worries.........................................................just don't think about Asante's dropped pick....AHHHHHH!! ARRGHH!
