    Even though they are a bit up in age I will still take our experienced big game linebackers of Seau, Bruschi and Vrabel over all others in our division except maybe Jonathan Vilma and Zach Thomas (also up there in age a bit).

    Vrabel, Colvin, Thomas aren't that old. They may not be young but they aren't old - they're in their prime.

    "Some speculated that it was some sort of virus that sapped the life out of the Patriot defenders that day, a claim never backed up by any of the players"

    LOL at his title: AFC East Preview: Offense fine, but 'D' may be Pats problem

    Yes, so far, the D has looked REALLY bad. I look forward to the season. This D is arguably more talented than it ever has been, but we'll have to see. And then Prisco will make some otheroutlandish claim and we'll move forward.

    :woohoo: The Superbowl is a "lock" baby! Pete's fallen off the bandwagon and ready to be roadkill for the Bob Kraft/Bill Belichick juggernaut once again! Now that's the way to start an NFL season!!! :woohoo:

    I like how, in a chart accompanying the same article, they rank the offenses and defenses from last year. NE points allowed: #2.

    Prisco is making way too much of one game. Yes the D lost that game last year. They were opposed by the best offense in the league and overcome by injuries (unless Alexander actually belonged in that game). It's not an excuse for why they lost, but instead a reason why that game is a poor predicative tool.

    Basically, pick an adjective: lazy, shortsighted, disingenuous, reactionary. They all fit.

    My feeling exactly. We've never won anything since Pete's been forced to like us.

    What does he know about defense anyway? His Binky is Peyton and he only left him after years of failure because he's a shameless frontrunner.

    Welcome back you spineless weasel. Tell us how good the colts are every week. Rodney needs some wallpaper!

    Pete "the hack" Prisco should not be allowed to waist ink. I know CHFF has called him a hack.But even before I read their take on him I never thought he was much of an expert. Many of the things he came out with just never made sense. He's like Bogus I don't pay attention to him.

    Great players and real men don't make excuses of why the Colts made that dramatic comeback,The guys took it upon themselves to just acknowledge that they were outplayed in the 2nd half and no excuse like the virus or flu epidemic will have ever came out of a players mouth here in NE,nor was the players using 'the stadium was excessively hot' excuse either.

    Prisco is a dumb **** who deserves to get his ass kicked. The same goes for Michael Silver, Wrong Borges, Shaugnessy & Felger. **** ALL OF THEM :D

    Peter Puffer is off the bandwagon?

    I certainly hope so... wasn't he the guy that the Idaho senator wanted oral sex from?

    Pete Prisco's Opinion on the Pats (LMAO)

    http://www.sportsline.com/nfl/story/10319886


    He's judging our Defense base on one half's performance vs. The Colts (LOL).

    What an Ass!!!!.

    Geeee, I wonder if he knows that the Colts won the Super Bowl with the League's Worst Run-D, and that We set the franchise record last year for Fewest Points allowed in Franchise History.


    The REAL reasons why we lost & gave up 32 points in the 2nd half is:

    1) Our D. was Decimated by Injuries.

    2) Peyton Manning and the Colts O. (2 much for our 2nd stringers).

    3) RCA Dome (aka the Steambath).

    4) Reche Caldwell (aka Da Blind Bat).

    5) Poor Officiating (Nice Job Guys).

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    And This Guy is From Long Island. WOW, That Figures. :)

    Re: Pete Prisco's Opinion on the Pats (LMAO)

    From the article:

    "Overview: With the additions to the passing game, everyone has put this team in the Super Bowl. That's not the issue. It's the defense, particularly older, slower linebackers. If that continues, the defense will struggle. Look for a lot of shootouts."

    Not sure when this article was written, but is not appropriate for the '07 New England Patriots.. great bulletin board material...

    Re: Pete Prisco's Opinion on the Pats (LMAO)

    That guy's consistently unbelievable. :rolleyes:

    Last year, the Pats had the top D-Line in the league and a criminally-underrated secondary despite key injuries. The LB corps played great until Junior got hurt. Now, they've added the top LB on the market, a blue-chip S/CB, and everybody's healthy. There's no question that they have a better D now than they did last year when they were #2 in the freakin' NFL.

    Re: Pete Prisco's Opinion on the Pats (LMAO)

    And they're both penciled in as starters this year. The Patriots did sign Adalius Thomas as a high-priced free agent to help, but he's 30 -- and looks like he weighs 285, not exactly speed weight.

    Yeah, Pete, go by how heavy he looks as opposed to how fast he obviously is.

    I CAN'T STAND IT!

    I love the part where he says Adalius Thomas looks overweight and slow...

    Did he mention the flu the whole team was suffering from between the Chargers and Colts games?
