    Nobody that really stood out in preseason, though Gutierrez and Bryant are mild surprises.

    All I have to say about that is THANK GOODNESS. I'm telling you, when he got run over by that tightend the other night, I had flashbacks of Monty Beisel getting run over by LT. It scared the HELL out of me.

    Not me, I saw a guy that was all done and I posted many times about it, only to get lambasted by Sicilian over it. This is very, very relieving and hands the reigns over to Wheatley, whewwwwww...........

    I have to agree on Hobson/Seau ... I see Junior making his way back to town at some point.

    Re: Patriots make cuts

    yeah, athat was bad, but personnel decisions need tobe made on more that one play, no matter how bad.

    He played with the ones all preseason, and no matter what we thought, that was a clear sign of what BB thought.

    Re: Patriots make cuts

    Gutierrez, Spann, Redd, Richardson, Stupar, 3 players we didn't have in camp, at least 2 of which are linemen.

    EDIT: not sure on Stupar's eligibility, actually. Oh well.

    Re: Patriots make cuts

    So does this mean Guyton is the #3 ILB or Alexander, or does Seau come back?

    From what I could actually see in UK of our games; Bryant looked shocking!! So I am not suprised. And what I saw, I am glad Ventrone has made it.
