    Gotta say I'm glad we didn't take a chance on the glass-kid. Lots of heart but not sure the flesh was willing.

    Why? Seward's young and has upside, Morgan has almost no upside and almost all downside...aging, injury prone, never finished a whole season. Read the Seward interview and you get at least a feel for his "chronic" problems...he overdid it on the first attempt to come back causing the "second" problem, but it was really just the first problem. Outside that he's had some dings but he's young enough that you could look to him as being "finally injury free"...I don't think anyone's going to make that assertion about Morgan

    Morgan who has had injuriy issues and is 29 over Seward who is coachable and can contribute on special teams?

    Younger on defense. Dan Morgan wouldn't help us do that. I agree that we don't know too much about Seward, but that's what the offseason camps are for.

    If he makes it to Week 1, we might have something. With Dan Morgan, you know exactly what you're getting (a downgrade).

    This seems to scream "I PLAY FANTASY FOOTBALL AND MADDEN AND I ONLY WANT PLAYERS I'VE HEARD OF EVEN IF THEY ARE PHYSICAL LIABILITIES!" But maybe that's just me.

    No Jersey Selected

    I hope that the NEP's passing on Morgan indicates that:
    1) Seau is likely to return;
    2) the FO is serious about becoming younger, and more talented, at ILB; and
    3) Bruschi and Seau will be the player/coaches for the next wave of Patriot ILBs.

    I didn't have a good feeling about Dan Morgan so yes I am glad the Patriots passed. Same for Zach Thomas.
