    Kinda curious as to what he has to say, since he did play there, but I don't want to give him a page hit.

    I caved and gave him a click. WIsh I hadn't. Stupid article that waffled all over the mail. I did send him something for his mailbag:

    How can you string so many words together with saying anything. I don't know whether to be annoyed at having wasted my time reading this tripe or be impressed at how consistently you say absolutely nothing. You should run for Congress. Seriously.

    What the title suggests - he is saying 8-8 or 9-7. He emphasizes Brady's leadership will be missed, but fails (or forgets) to mention the other leaders (Moss, Light, Rodney, Tedy, Vrabel) on this team.

    Blah, Blah, Blah, the same useless crap that I've heard since Brady was injured. The title says it all. I won't even waste my time clicking on the link.
    It's strange, for some reason, this stuff doesn't bother me anymore. I'm used to hearing this stuff now. I've grown immune to it.:rolleyes:

    Re: Ross Tucker:pats will be average without Brady

    I like Tucker a lot, he generally offers good insights on the game from a player's perspective (e.g. the bit in this piece about Brady's demeanor in the huddle). That said, he's just like anybody else when it comes to predicting the future. It will be a while until we know whether his crystal ball is accurate.

    As for this: "Had you really heard of Wes Welker before last year, when he played with Brady for the first time?" Umm...yes, I had. He was pretty much the Dolphin's offense, as I recall. :rolleyes:

    Re: Ross Tucker:pats will be average without Brady

    He's about right. He says a lot of great things about the Patriots and especially Tom Brady. He's on par with what I guessed as a final record. I say 9-7, 10-6 Ross Tucker says 8-8 or 9-7.

    I have no problem with what he wrote.

    I actually kinda enjoy it. One more person that will be publicly proven wrong over the course of the season, and one more article that you can bet will find its way into the Pats' locker room.

    Re: Ross Tucker:pats will be average without Brady

    What is interesting is that he says that BB and Pioli run the best organization.
    Then he says without Brady the team will be average at best.
    Then he goes on to say Brady is the difference between good and great.

    So according to him, we're a great organization that has fielded a team that is only average without our best player, but that Brady is the difference between good and great.
    But if we will only be average without Brady doesn't that mean we should only have been good, not great with him?
    Or did Ross really mean to say that Brady was the difference between average and great?

    I'm mocking this idiot of course.

    The average poster on this board writes more intelligent stuff than this genius.
    But, he could probably fit right in on the Jets or Raiders boards. ;>)

    I have seen a good article or two from this author but I will join most of you and pass on this particular one.

    Re: Ross Tucker:pats will be average without Brady

    I think the article was pretty accurate

    For those who think Cassel is more than just a clipboard holder and is the '2001 Brady version :rolleyes:' of this team than of course you are going to say Ross is an idiot

    For those who think Cassel is only good for garbage time Quarterbacking and the only reason he is the starter is because there is no one near good out there to replace Brady at least adequately is thinking Ross is about right at
    9-7


    Duh,A brain surgeon is not needed to figure out what members are going to say here ....

    You think Cassel would be a decent starting QB then Ross is an idiot to those who do

    If you think Cassel will suck as a #1 QB then he is on target to those who do

    Some of them are little more than irritating broken records at this point.

    Re: Ross Tucker:pats will be average without Brady

    I enjoy this. Rodney and his defensive partners will build on this and the chip on their shoulders will be massive in a short while. The offense will be out to show the naysayers as well. One thing this team has proven is its mettle when it's challenged.

    Re: Ross Tucker:pats will be average without Brady

    How can anyone compare the leadership of Tom Brady to that of a defensive player? Brady RUNS THE ENTIRE offense.

    Duh, the Pats will probably be average without Brady...they could actually suck.....or , you know, they may be good. Who the heck knows - but the smart money is on average. Duh.
