    Damn, I'm still maintaining that the Pats must have saw something to make them hesitate there.

    It's ok. The Patriots have great D-linemen like Fortson and proved this weekend that they don't need any pass rushing depth.

    Either the Pats weren't interested or the Raiders overpaid by a ton. No other reason to go there.

    Noooooooooooooooo




    After watching Ninkovich's pathetic pass rush on SNF... I was hoping we'd bring Carter back.

    Didn't they cut Fortson to sign some other guy nobody has ever heard of?

    Indeed they did. The Patriots didn't pressure Flacco on Sunday, either.

    But Ninko will have 10-15 sacks this year, like he always does.

    I suppose that wishing Ninko to be the second coming of Mike Vrabel and having that actually be so are two different things.

    Flacco was taking 3 step drops and hitting open receivers without ever needing to hold the ball or look for other options. We do not have a pass rush problem. We have a coverage problem. Andre Carter is not going to change that.

    Let's see.....we passed on Carter. St Louis passed on him. Arizona passed on him. Oakland even passed on him the first time.

    This isn't last year's Andre Carter we're talking about.....

    You act like Carter was Jason Pierre-Paul. He has had more bad seasons then good in his career.

    Yeah, the quick 3 step and chuck it 40 yards downfield play happens all the time, and there was no lack of pressure this weekend.

    Nah.... we've got people thinking Flacco was throwing bombs on step #3. Why not hold out for pretty much anything you want? Expect a unicorn and a truly climbable rainbow, too. :rocker:

    Vince Wilfork for slot receiver!

    Carter has 4 years of double digit sacks and has 6 sacks or more in 7 of his 11 years. Ninkovich has 12 career sacks and had a career high of 6.5 sacks last season. Cunningham has 2 sacks in his 2+ year career.

    Maybe Trevor Scott (1.5 sacks since 2009) is the answer.

    Edelman can take his spot on the line. Plus he's younger and cheaper.

    No Jersey Selected

    Here is to hoping Jake Bequette, completely out of nowhere, is lightning in a bottle. Highly doubtful as it may be.
