    Do you think this would work in the Bengal locker room? I love the fact that the veteran players like Tedy and Rodney lay down the law early.

    Quote from the globe to David Thomas:

    "Something Rodney told me is that rookies should be seen and not heard," the soft-spoken Thomas said. "So just do what you're supposed to do and sit there and learn from those guys, because they have a lot to share."

    Someday, Rodney will be an outstanding HC in the NFL. I just can't help but think that somehow he would have found a way to stop Indy at least once in that second half and the Pats would be getting fit for pinky rings right now.

    IM the Bengals locker room it's "the first arrest call another rookie, the second arrest call Marvin".

    The Bengal vets give the rookies advice on criminal lawyers and seedy strip joint locations.

    Palmer is such a ****y whiner. Loved watching his team get there butts kicked all year. Carson just shut your mouth!

    Likewise, how do you think a high profile top pick like Eli Manning or Michael Vick would have responded if they heard this in camp.

    They have footage of him in the tunnel just before player introductions against the Pats this past season. It was as if he was shouting down a cell block in an Ohio state prison. He was saying something to the effect of: They’re the old champs…their time is done. They’re the chumps….we’re the new champs.

    I’m not joking. Those aren’t the exact words…but they were along those lines.

    Then he said they were better after we kicked their a%%

    Wow! I didn't know about this. I remember getting miffed with his comments after their loss to us last season, but since I admired his grit in making it back after his injury, I ignored it as the post-loss trauma. Him calling us 'chumps' or something in that line is disrespectful. Similar to Berryman's sorry declaration against Brady at the Charger's 'victory' parade. Palmer now joins my list of players that I am never going to respect.

    QBs are special.

    Still, verbalized or not, their is a veteran pecking order on the Pats and rookies need to prove themselves.

    In a physically taxing and disciplined game like football, this is a very good thing.

    the Pats have TRUE veteran leadership while some of the other teams just have the cliche leadership.

    When you think about it, we were without BOTH our starting safeties (Harrison & Wilson) prior to the playoffs, our starting ILB (Seau), and then lost one of our backup safeties (Hawkins, the starting safety in the playoffs) in the Indy game. Add to that, 15 guys with the flu, and yet we were still one minute away from winning SB XXXXI. I have no doubt we would have beaten the Bears also, OUR D would have made Grossman look even worse that what INDY's D did. Though it hurts, you have to be proud of the 2006 Pats.

    The Tennessee game actually cost us a SB win, I think we win the Indy game if Harrison is in the lineup. Oh well, that's football.

    LOL did he? If anyone finds a link do post it! Some people should learn to just sit there and look smart rather than opening their mouths and ruining the aura.

    That said,I always liked Palmer and no doubt his return from that injury brought with it some high hopes. They all sound like Freddie Mitchell,though,don't they?

    Definitely. Though we made adjustments for his injuries we didn't "replace" him nor have we found a substitute who brings what he brings.Just knowing he was back there made a difference;he made opponents nervous at the very least.

    If and when the day comes the Pats believe they've found someone who comes close to being a Rodney Harrison (or a Tedy, or a Troy)-they must get him. Players like him (them) don't just come up every year.

    I have met Rodney several times. My wife and I actually had a chance to talk to him and his wife for about 10 minutes, after the '04 sb dvd premiere.

    The guy is a class act off the field. You would never believe it was the same person. He is going to make a great coach some day. lol- I have some pretty cool pics of him and BB posing with their SB rings.

    We got lucky, and had seats right (Directly) in front of them inside the theater. All we had to do was turn around and ask them if we could take some pics. I was so nervous talking to Bill, that my wife had to chime in and save me from embarrassment... I felt like a giant Puss! lol- Funny, because I had no problem talking to Rodney... but when it came to BB, I started stuttering and sounded like an idiot. :D

    Nice story!

    So BB and his wife were still a public item then, I guess. :)

    No, Bill's wife wasn't there (his son was with him though). Rodney had his wife (could have been his GF, but it seemed like his wife) with him. We had a chance to talk with them afterwards in the lobby. The only bad part was that I couldnt ask for an autograph. It would have just seemed lame and ruined the moment. He is a cool "ordinary" kind of dude.

    They are Polaroid's... but maybe I can take a picture of them with my digital camera and post them. I'll try to do it later, and see how they come out. ;)

    * If the offense had managed a 1st down or 2 in the 2nd half it would have made all the difference in the world

    I was in favor of having the starters rest that game...when Rodney went down, deep down inside I knew we were done.

    I was torn between resting the starters and letting the starters continue to roll and go for the win. In some ways I thought BB would rest them but in retrospect I wasn't surprised to see them out there either. Oh well.

    I agree-seeing Rodney go down was a bad event.

    I would love to see him in stripes right after he retires.

    Imagine him calling a Bengal or Colt game?

    Hilarious.

    IMO, Thomas is already a better TE than Watson. He's got great hands, runs better routes, and is a better blocker. I still don't understand why the team didn't go to him more after the Jacksonville game.
