    I dunno if this was already reported and I missed it, but I was pretty surprised when I saw it on Reiss' Pieces

    Who is the maroon who gave this thread one-star? When I saw the thread it had one view and a one-star rating. WTH?

    Whoever did that is more obnoxious than I am. Seriously.

    But yeah, I just saw it myself and thought, WHOA!

    ps Nice links :D

    5 starred on principle. Interesting news, and kinda strange considering that we're also hearing so much good news about Mayo. I'd assume that this meant Mayo would be out for a while, but maybe Belichick wants to hedge his bets? Or maybe he just wants to make sure that the trampling didn't mess up his backup plan too badly :p

    Someone (sadly, with a paid subscription) immediately one-stars every one of my threads. Whatevs. Getting a gold star back in the day was good, so I guess any more than one is bonus.

    haha, maybe that's it. It's tough enough living next door to the country half the world wants to blow up without people dissing my threads. It's not easy typing by the glow of the northern lights shining through the cracks in my igloo... :(

    Gave this thread 5 stars to help make up for the person who gave a 1.

    On topic.... if Seau is in game ready shape then bring him in. Right now the more help that can be added in for linebackers the better things will be. Even if we have to wait until November its better than not at all.

    Do you have something against the guy? Just curious. I've always found him to be one of the most honest and objective journalist in sports.

    Re: Is this news or did I miss it? Seau took a physical for the Pats whilst in Beant

    Ahaha... thanks on both counts.

    Back to the topic, I wonder if Bill is wanting to make the 3-4 function better and needs a Seau or Bruschi (and it seems clear it would be Jr.) to make it happen?

    I notice the number of 3-4 snaps so far this season are tiny.

    I ask this because it's tough to imagine a 40 y/o Seau, even in great shape, in the middle of a 4-3. OLB? DE?

    No man, Mike rocks. Just think ESPN blows and his Blog has been a significant drop-off from his old one @ the Globe.

    Yeah I think the Globe should have upped the ante to keep him. They haven't been the same since. Huge loss.

    ...and the polar bear attacks. Those always disrupt my internet connection.

    I wonder how much Seau could actually give. He looked a bit slow before his latest "retirement," but maybe the time off has rejuvenated him. And he said he could only give 6 games, so maybe he has something left.

    I was worried about the LBs before the season started, and then Mayo went down. But Guyton has really played well and really proven himself. When Mayo comes back, we should be good at LB, though we could definitely use more depth. Just not sure if Seau has much to give.

    Jr was still making plays when he left as a Patriot.

    Obviously, he would bring great leadership and toughness at ILB on run downs.

    MLB on run plays is the only option. OLBs need more speed even to manoever to set the edge on runs. OLB pass rush, JR is way too slow. DE, way too slow on pass rush and too light on run D. Even MLB is a problem with TEs and gawd help us RBs ovah the middle; his experience and intuition will only get him so far, q.v. Bruschi, Tedy. JR would help on 3-4 run situations. If the fat DT porker BB signed works out, they may not need JRs limited run D capabilities.

    I agree. Though I am excited to read about Seau news (and hence giving this thread a 5 star :)), I wonder how much Seau can contribute.

    just wish he does enough and get his SB ring with us this year. :)

    BTW, JSn—if you Canucks want your invasion to go undetected, you have to remember that we say "while" here, not "whilst." :)
