    Enjoy scratching and clawing for 10 wins at best and a 1st round playoff exit, if you even make the playoffs, Jason.

    He said he would rather play to a team closer to his family so its not exactly surprising for that and other reasons...

    Good if Woods, Crable and others step up, other than that, who is rushing the passer.. ??? Hope he does not like winning super bowls.. But he does not want to live in Foxboro.. so be it..

    THANK GOD

    Now we can end this nearly endless speculation, and get on with our offseason!

    Oh wait, the Peppers talk will continue forever... :)

    Hopefully we made it expensive for Miami to sign JT

    That sucks. I still think LB is still the Pats' biggest weakness and I am still concerned about who will line up opposite AD.

    Oh, well, would've been nice to see him in a Pats uniform, but the decision was understandable given he wants to be closer to his family.

    Probably a one year contract at veteran's minimum. Too bad the

    Pats couldn't have offered a 20 million dollar per year offer.

    Re: Official: Jason Taylor signs with the Dolphins.

    I really wanted him here, but we've still got a darn good team on our hands. Hopefully, we can add some depth to our linebacking corps in the near future.

    Re: Official: Jason Taylor signs with the Dolphins.

    I share some of your concern - but I feel like the team could not possible have been banking on Jason Taylor as their contingency plan to the LB corps - if they signed him, thats a bonus, but BB must be confident in the group they have.

    I guess what concerns me most is that we might not have the depth to use AD at SILB if Bruschi/Mayo or Guyton gets injured.

    I'm confident in Pierre Woods as at least an adequate starter & in TBC as a nickel guy/adequate starter, and intrigued by Crable/Redd.

    Re: Official: Jason Taylor signs with the Dolphins.

    We are up against the Cap if you read Reiss column, we have enough for draft picks and that is it.. I hope they have a plan, because Pierre Woods is now the starting olb.. So we ride with it.. Like I said hope Taylor likes not winning the super bowls because that is what will happen down there..

    Re: Official: Jason Taylor signs with the Dolphins.

    The other thing to consider is that if LB is truly a thin spot, it might only matter for the base defense, which is probably only out there 40% of the time or so.

    We can still run some intriguing packages out there. The 3-3 was working well for us at the end of the year, w Sey being a beast, Mike Wright applying some pressure, and hopefully Green can get his production going this year. Then the 3 LBs in that package would be AD, Guyton, Mayo, which seems just fine.

    Re: Official: Jason Taylor signs with the Dolphins.

    people here have a higher opinion of taylor than they should

    he almost lost a leg last year

    we didn't even want him in sd when there was rumors of that happening last year ...and that was knowing merriman was likely going to be re-injured early on in the season

    it's been clear his career ended when he signed with the redskins (like many careers have, since the daniel came into power)
