    The old adage that the 'speed of the NFL game' is the hardest thing for rookies to adjust to doesn't apply to Demps. :)

    Very impressive that he already looks close to being in "football shape" again.

    It was nice to see but I won't be declaring him a in 'football shape' just yet.

    Everyone talks about Demps' speed, but did you see that original cut at the 43? Or the open field change of direction at the 34? Very raw but if "Coach IF" coaches him up, the Pats have truly pulled one off again.

    His first KO runback was very anti climatic.

    I have a good feeling about him, he could end up being great.

    Yes, indeed. :cool:

    And that's precisely why I've been pounding the table on this kid since before we signed'm.

    I don't give a rat's @$$ about'is "40" Speed.

    It's his amazing Fluidity, his ridiculous Lateral Velocity, and his preposterously explosive Ricochet out'f'is cuts that I believe will make him such a nightmarishly dangerous weapon...even against the best Defenses in the NFL in The Grim Games of Deep Winter!!

    I think he will mostly be a returner this year and eventually take over the Woodhead role with Woodhead being in the last year of his deal.

    I've said it before and I'll say it again. I think BJGE looks a little quicker this year.

    Yeah, like I said in the game thread: He may have only gotten to the 16 — like any Pats KR — but he got there in half the time.



    What I really liked, besides the obvious, is that he really seems to fit in with the team, comes across as a football guy. Having old pal AHern on the sidelines helps.

    I'll have to see it again because all I remember was the first cut, but that was pretty decent. I mean he's a raw rookie with no camp and he's making the big boys miss. It's encouraging.

    Not that I would ever wager money, har, but if somebody forced me to bet I'd have to bet that the team did pull one off again. This is a ridiculous year for personnel wins. I can't ever remember anything like it. Maybe Andy Katzenmoyer? How about that Deossie draft for the Giants?

    In my limited football knowledge, I think KR is pretty difficult to do great everytime. If they can create a crease and he can find a hole, He's gone.........I'm exicited with the possibilties given the lack luster KR's of the past:singing:

    I agree. Hopefully Vereen isn't seriously hurt, but I think the Ridley and Demps combo could be very interesting to watch.

    How is it the jests are "ground and pound" yet it's the Pats who have such a palette of RB talent? The additions of an improved running game and a good defense will close the gap for TB and BB holding their 4th Lombardi together.
