    Just pay the man...he can't be asking for that much, and he is a solid CB back there

    Good. Time to clean house.

    19-0 and a SB loss has got to have killed the psyche of this team.

    We need new blood.

    He is nothing more than a JAG anyways. He was our JAG so obviously we like him more than other people's JAGs but he is still a JAG. No need to pay any kind of $ to a Randall Gay type player.

    According to KC Joyner, this isn't accurate at all.

    He may not be a #1 or #2 but he did man the post in a superbowl and
    has filled in quite well. He knows the system and that is something
    considering BB's system.

    This potential loss is significant in light of Samuels leaving and Hobbs ?health.

    The Pats' current alternatives to Randall Gay are Mixon, Richardson,

    and Spann.

    Gay was decent, but he isn't exactly a guy we couldn't afford to lose at any cost. The one time he filled in for Hobbs as a starter this year he was horrible.

    Samuels will be tough to replace. Gay will not be that tough.

    He's a 3rd or 4th CB who can start in an emergency. He shouldn't be expected to fill a starting role on a regular basis though. I didn't think he looked all that good in 2007, and gave up some huge plays that he shouldn't have, if he's starting quality. He's not a "jag", but I have no doubt someone like Chevis Jackson could fill his spot on the team (if Gay leaves via free agency), and could be an upgrade over Gay once he develops. Let's not forget Randall seems to be injured for large portions of the season, and has found himself on the IR multiple times. So, I wouldn't sign him to any kind of significant contract.

    It's a shame that we are arguing over a stiff like Randall Gay. The

    time has come for the Pats to draft a couple of good rookies and

    then coach the heck out of them.

    Jets...not surprised...I think the Jets will land him...no big deal though...Richardson, SPann, a FA...a draft pick...

    Randall Gay isn't a stiff.

    He only gave up 5.8 YPA last season, which was considerably better than Samuel. He also didn't allow a completion on the seven vertical passes thrown in his direction.

    His biggest concern, IMO, is durability.

    Along with the loss of Samuel, it will strip the cornerback roster

    almost bare. I would not be very confident with any of the people

    you mention above starting opposite Hobbs.

    good riddance.....wish him all the luck in the world, but he's just not that good.

    Not that impressed with Gay, he was a mediocre corner with an injury history and to be honest, I think Mike Richardson can step right into his role this season.

    I wonder if the Pats will press Ty Law even more now that Gay is moving on.

    Oh man, I'm getting giddy, we're within 9 hours and counting to the NFL FA bonanza, I won't sleep tonight, I'll have the computer right by my face with my <F5> refresh key set to automatic on Rotoworld.

    Frankly I don't think its a big deal to lose Gay other than finding someone else to fill his backup role. He has been decent at times, but also has been badly burned otherwise despite whatever statistics you want to bring up.

    Additionally he has shown he has difficulty staying healthy, which despite any statistics, is critical in evaluating him I think.

    as one poster pointed out

    "Randall Gay isn't a stiff.

    He only gave up 5.8 YPA last season, which was considerably better than Samuel. He also didn't allow a completion on the seven vertical passes thrown in his direction."

    I suppose you'd like Earth wind and fire back :rolleyes:

    Gay made few mistakes and ..... he knows our system ... that's NOT a trivial matter. Hey just #hit can all the CBs and start over after all Hobbs
    gave up a bunch also. You guys kill me.:confused:

    I'm for that. So far I'm thinking the Pats draft 2 linebackers, 2 corners, an OL, and a RB or WR. Oh yeah, I almost forgot the obligatory tight end. :p

    The Pats have not signed a good UFA cornerback since Tyrone Poole

    in 2003. They wasted a third round draft pick in 2005 on Duane Starks.

    One year ago today's post - The Pats have not signed a good UFA WR since David Patten. They signed Donald Hayes and wasted a 2nd round pick on Bethel Johnson.

    Better read above. you don't know what you are talking about.
    Blue isn't a #1 CB or #2 but he is what you need for your 3rd or 4th
    option ... bum hardly .... apparently you haven't watched Blue play much.
    The only real knock on him is his durability.

    Also ... he is the 7th best FA on the market.
    And as a backup his stats are even better than that
    guy so many wanted here who got franchied by Oakland.

    Code:
    [FONT=System]                  Solo Tackels    Passes Defensed   Interceptions

    and Blue was Not a starter!

    Think about that carefully for awhile.
