    Is he the next one to go from 2009 draft Rd 2 busts, ofcourse after PUP return.
    Butler was a complete waste and Brace has no room on this team now with 4-3 focus.

    After Garay's hit, it is obvious that Brady's knee Brace has been way more productive than Ron Brace :bricks:

    Why can't Brace play in a 4-3?

    It must suck just rooting for players to fail. I can't imagine I would even enjoy watching the games with that attitude.

    If big Al fails to impress in the next month,Brace may be sliding into that spot earlier than expected.

    Brace played in a 4-3 in college, and is probably a better fit in that scheme than as an end in a 3-4, based upon his size/speed combo.

    What was the point of this thread again? He can't come off PUP for 4 weeks.

    Depending on what happens to M Wright he may be back sooner rather than later.

    This really is a curious thread, isn't it? The timing is out of the blue. No recent news of Brace, we know he can't even practice for another month, and there's no desperate need for another DT. The Butler reference is oddly stale, and the comment that Brace can't fit in a 4-3 doesn't make much sense given that he was an effective 4-3 DT in college and always seemed a little out of position as a 3-4 DE.

    Maybe the OP was just bubbling over with bitterness at the team, fueled by the fact that they've only won 2 games this season?

    The reasoning. Belichick is an idiot! Boy, It used to be so much fun rooting for this team before that idiot took over:)

    To be fair, I don't think anyone was looking for the Patriots to only have a 2 win season....

    Let me explain this again, and once more in english...point of this thread is to discuss what will Pats do when Brace comes off PUP.....cut him or keep him. If they keep him who else will need to go. Got it amigo ?

    No point in talking about that now. First of all, this is completely irrelevant for another month. Second, we'll have a lot more information about things like DL injuries in a month. And finally, you've already made up your mind apparently.

    But from this early vantage point, the only reasonable answer is "the guy who goes on IR in week 7." :confused2:

    Read your own OP.

    It sure seems like the point of this thread is to bash the 2009 draft.

    Brace played beside BJ Raji in a 4-3 in college. If he can't play in a 4-3, it will be because he sucks, not because it's a bad system fit.

    How is this 'explaining it again'? This is totally different than your original post.

    When you two find a point of total agreement, the case is pretty much closed. :)

    HAHAHA! Great.

    But to the point, it is clear that Brace will never be a key part of this defense. Why do people keep asking for that over and over again and keep disappointing themselves?

    Of course it's unfair to single out a poster, but i do imagine a number of posters sitting with their little draft pick lists from years past and cheering when one has a bad game or grimacing when Gronk or Hernandez or the dozens of young players we've added recently does well.

    Hey, whatever floats your boat.:D

    How can we tell what they'll do when we haven't seen him in over a year? We have no idea what kind of progress, if any, he's made.

    This thread is just an excuse to pile on yet another Patriots player.

    My Jersey:

    If we have no DL's going on IR through the end of the PUP window, Brace will probably go on IR. And we will be very, very lucky that no DL goes on IR.

    If Wright goes on IR early, we may or may replace him with Warren, so it may take 2 DL's going on IR for us to activate Brace.

    In any case, Brace is a 4-3 DT. If anything, the switch to the 4-3 gives Brace a much better chance to be productive this year and/or in the future. If we had a 4-3 defense when he was drafted, he would have been a much more understandable pick.
