Shouldn't the last sentence of the report have furnished the heading?
The team also announced that Donte' Stallworth was activated off the physically unable to perform list.
I am thankful we won't have a top rusher on the team going by the name 'Quad.'
We lost Quadtraine Hill? We're screwed.
Well, there goes Maroney's backup's backup's backup's backup (?).
More like Heath Evan's backup.
Evans is Maroney's backup's backup's backup so that makes Quad Maroney's backup's backup's backup's backup
Well Maroney is a TB and Hill is a FB.
I finally get to say it...YES!!!
...and he was fast becomming known as "The Q" in these parts too. A reincarnated Carlos Quintana if you will.
Remember in 2005 when the team got so desperate for runningbacks that Evans, a fullback, became their starting running back? Yikes.
So, what's the Official roster count now?
It doesn't appear that CJ or Troy have been placed on Reserve PUP; does that mean that we're now one over the max? Forgive me, but I seem to have lost count over the weekend.
P.S.: It would seem to make more sense to me to release either Dunlap or Jones, since it was Stallworth who was removed from Active PUP. Both of them have even less chance to make the 53 than Q.Hill had.
Typically when BB cuts people this early in camp they've either screwed up bad or they just physically or mentally dont have a chance in this system.
Just making space for a veteran bruiser RB for goal line situations.
You are allright. Hill is 6'2" 230. Big kid.
With all due respect to our fallen player Marquise Hill..In Patriots history I cannot remember a player with the last name of Hill who either made the teams final roster and ALSO was a part of the regular rotation and a meaningful addition to the team.
And in his first game, tore up his former team at 5+ yards a carry.
Unless it was Q. Smith...but I think it was Quad Hill...
last week one of the bloggers made a point of contrasting his hangdog, lackadaisical, moping approach to practice with the upbeat energy, vitality, and engagement of ALL of the still-more-competive WR platoon.
One can only hope.
Wasn't that also the case in the last half of the 2007 Championship game.
Don't remind me.
We need more RBs, and fewer WRs, on the TC roster.
They're currently at 84 now. Minus A$ante and the 3 NFLEs gives 80. But considering the Pats were at 81 for the good part of the last week (and at 82 various points before then), there's obviously something missing here.
As Arte Johnson might say: verrry in-ter-est-ink...
I'll say one thing about injuries to the Pats: they seem to come in bunches at one position.
Only at Patsfans can a guy named Quadtrine Hill (and a cut player at that) spawn off a thread covering 3 pages of forum talk
If it wasn't the offseason this thread would be buried on the second page by now.
Obviously they had thoughts of him as a Patrick pass type player..versatile..and...it did not pan out.
Yeah - I'm not sure there was a real expectation that Hill was going to fill that role on the team, but he certainly had the size.
Give me that size (actually shorter and stockier) in someone with more experience and I'd love to see if he can serve the role of averaging 3 yards a carry within the 10 yard line.
Someone like Antoine Smith???? One of the top 10 RBs in Pats History?
Separate names with a comma.
