    Not to sound the panic alarm cause I think 12 is gonna be OK but anyone else think, given the moderate statistical success he had behind a horrid line in KC last year running the spread that Thigpen might be worth a look? I know they were 2-14 or whatever, but they lost a LOT of close games.

    We can give Kansas City their #2 pick back for Thigpen.

    Umm.. the pats used the #2 to take Butler..

    If the Pats were to go for someone, I'd go for Huard who is in San Fran.

    that being said, I don't see the Pats looking for a QB.

    The Chiefs picked up Gutierrez as competition for Thigpen. Cassel and Croyle are the #1 and 2,

    Mayo, Here is a thought. BB is always looking for players that have played well against the Pats. I think A.J. Feeley has performed well against us. How about A.J. Feeley from Philly? They have Vick and Kolb. They need a TE (Watson appears to be low man and last year of contract).

    Just saying I think he is better than what we have right now.

    I personally like that thought. I like Feeley as a backup to Brady better than McCown or Thigpen, and better than either Walter or O'Connell (at this stage). How about we trade Alex Smith for him? :D

    I was just being a pain in the butt suggesting the Patriots over pay

    for Thigpen by giving Kansas City one of the 2010 #2s. K.C. wants

    a #3 for Thigpen.

    Why would we trade for someone that's going to be beat out for the job by the guy we cut?

    That would make me feel insecure at this point.

    Disable Jersey

    Seriously, how comfortable do you feel with O'C at #2 after last night?

    Why trade viable commodities like a draft pick, or a starting caliber player, for a back up QB that is likely to be waived anyway? One or a couple of the Guittuirez, Thigpen, Feeley, Huard, etc group is going to be released. Just wait and pick one up for nothing.

    I'm not buying, especially this part:

    (A) The Patriots would not use Vick as a "pure" QB, period.

    (B) BB would sooner start Jake Ingram at QB than give Brad Childress a draft pick for one of his castoffs.
