    He hasn't played a pre-season game. He is still only in his second year. And all he's ever won is an off-season positional work-out award. But I don't care. From everything I've read, he's the first young LB in awhile with really solid potential to start (down the road) and I say his roster spot is secure. *Book it.

    I think all of our projected rosters have included Woods.

    thanks for the earth shattering news, you know how to pick the sleepers on a roster, maybe you can be hired by espn to replace kiper, how about brady a lock?

    I'm all for sarcasm, but I didn't realize you all felt the same way. Apologies for not realizing Woods and Brady were on the same footing in everyone else's eyes. Christ, it's not like I said Maroney or Seymour was a lock.

    Take a breath, ladies.

    Why are we so blessed?

    Why would anyone create a thread like this when we have already seen dozens of articles, posts, blog entries of how good Pierre has been doing this offseason. Everyone here feels that Pierre will make the team, big deal.

    As I said before (and now you continue to feel as though it's necessary to pile on), I hadn't realized that as many people as I felt that he is a no-brainer LOCK for the roster. In fact, listening to the PFW guys yesterday - all of whom are far more in tune to what's going on than you or I or anyone else here - they were far less strident (though convinced, as well) about Woods' shot at making the 53.

    Again, there are reasons to pile on people here with absurd, retarded threads. While this may not have been my best, I hardly see why it invites this level of know-it-all Ma$$-hole-ishness.

    There is no reason for such animosity with someone who states an opinion with which we all agree. In fact, we SHOULD be celebrating the fact that an UDFA from a year ago is part of our squad and our future.

    Thanks, mg. I'm not used to being considered somehow naive on this board, but I guess it's my turn. Quite frankly, I'm pleased that so many others share my view. It's a testament to just how much progress Woods has made - and in such a short time.

    Agreed. It's amazing as well when you realize Woods wasn't a starter in college; yet, the Pats knew enough about him to sign him as an UDFA and the rest is history. Talk about a value pickup!

    You're all small-minded jerks.

    Woods is a lock... for Canton.




    :eek:
    Book it. Book it right now.

    IIRC, after his sophomore season plenty had him penciled in as a top 10 pick for the following year. It isn't as if he was a complete unknown like Cassel.

    That said, I agree that patsox shouldn't necessarily be chastised for his view, but I also agree that he really isn't going out on a limb.

    Let's see some fence straddle more that! :rocker: :cool3:

    I like Woods, I hope he makes it, not only onto the roster, but into the starting lineup in the future.

    It's not a stretch, considering that several of our starters have uncertain contract situations.

    Cousins,
    I like Woods, but will he continue to develop? Is he just a ST maven? Is he the only new LB we need?
    I mentioned this in another thread about the waste of not moving Samuel right now, but I have another positive pickup that would add youth to the LB core and solve the problem of not getting anything back for Samuel. I think it is a losing proposition to get Samuel 10 games in........ New idea. The 'Boys are looking for DB help. Look who they are dangling!
    "Mac Engel, of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, reports the Dallas Cowboys could trade LB Bobby Carpenter to fill a need at defensive back."
    Would you trade for Carpenter, who we know the Pats liked in the first round of last years draft but went for Maroney, for "Get Paid" Samuel? Would is be wise to get Carpenter ready for 08 and beyond? I don't know if Woods is the answer or the youngster from SMU but, it's not just one LB that is graying, it is all of them that are. Let Carpenter learn under Teddy, Vrabel, Seau, Thomas, Colvin, Pees and BB.

    I say let Assante go to the Cowboys for Carpenter who seems to be the smart player BB looks for. Maybe the Cowboys throw in a third or a fourth too.
    Now we don't have to gamble as far as when the prodigal son 'Sante returns and our LB core gets younger with some first round talent. Merriweather and Hobbs might be a great CB tandem.

    Would you Cousins out there do this, or just let Samual go after a few token games this year for maybe a comp pick in 2008? I don't care what anyone says, Samuel IS!!!! a distraction in 07.

    If you can grab a first round talent who makes you younger at a spot where you need to target, and LB was not addressed in April, doesn't this deal just fall into BB and SPs' lap? Then Woods and Carpenter and maybe one of the other youngsters are the core of the LB future.

    Samuel for Bobby Carpenter would be among the worst trades of all time.
