    Who does Logan Ryan cover?

    At this moment, I feel much more comfortable with Ryan on either Sanders or Welker over Dennard or Arrington.

    All you guys saying Browner doesn't cover TE's...well neither did Talib, and he had no problem shutting down the supposedly "best TE in the game" Jimmy Graham.

    And Browner size + game is much more better suited to playing against TE's than Talib.

    Were so lucky to have an Elite Safety who can cover any WR in the league.

    Mcourty is lock down.

    Logan Ryan covers the bench, unless he beats out Arrington for the CB4 position or gets shifted over to safety.

    At this moment, with Dennard on the sidelines and with Browner starting the season with a 4 game suspension, Logan Ryan SHOULD be the starting corner opposite Revis once the season starts. The kids a ball hawk, who 3 days in his having a pretty good camp.

    Why you would start him on the bench I don't know.

    I was watching BSPN last night and liked what I saw, in terms of getting perspective. As the pieces have come together this off-season I've been looking forward to my high-ceiling theory of what this defense could become.

    They were doing a "Why Not Us?" segment on Houston and pointed to the pieces in place on that D: JJ Watt, Clowney, Crick, Cushing... and of course, on offense they have a meh QB but also one of the best receivers in the game and one of the best rushing attacks.

    Houston.

    This just reminded me that (for example) we added Revis. Houston (!) added Clowney. Everybody gets better, as far as how the off-season looks. Nobody will decline. Nobody will "never be the same" after injury. Nobody will lose a step as he gets a year older. Every draft pick will pan out as advertised.

    I'm not accusing you guys of doing this, I'm trying to temper my own homerism. Truth? Right now I can't see this defense being a meh defense or a bottom-feeding defense. I have a raging preseason hard-on for this D.

    Like you guys I'm worrying about beating Denver and then either Seattle or San Francisco. I'm not even thinking of being challenged early in the playoffs.

    It took a "Why Not Us?" segment on Houston (!) to pull me back down to Earth.

    I don't see the Pats having the trouble some teams have with "collecting talent" rather than "building a team." I see this defense gelling and defining itself as the season goes forward... but like the loss of Mayo and Wilfork last year, we don't know what may gut this defense this year.

    I'm just reminding myself.

    But as of July, as those with keener eyes for the game have pointed out in various ways, dayum.

    I'd start him on the bench because Dennard and Arrington were both better players as of the last time they were all on the field. Why you would do it any other way, I don't know.

    Because he's better.

    The silliness of this post of yours is impressive, but completely unpersuasive.

    Connolly is the better player over Wendell at G, and probably at C as well. OTOH he costs more and is getting up there in age. Fielding a Superbowl contender that needs every regular season victory to position well in the playoffs, I do not think the Pats Coaches want to play a rookie on the O-line who has not fully earned the start and is ready.

    So even if Stork will likely become the starting C at some point, it will not likely happen Day 1, or perhaps even Year 1.

    The problem with Wendell is not toughness or skill, he is as tough as nails, rather it is pure size. Unfortunately, the same applies to Kline at G. Both Wendel and Kline are undersized for their positions; and it will hurt them in the long run. Connolly will need to be replaced within the next few years in any case, but maybe not now.

    I'd like to see Connolly start at C and yield to a successor when that player is ready. I'd like to see his vacancy at RG, taken by a fully prepared successor, and have him revert to a swing interior reserve.

    I feel young vets Kline or Cannon should be the RG. Halapio it appears needs grooming to handle NFL pass rushers. Many have nominated Cameron Fielding to be a swing tackle, but his best position may well be RG. But either choice, Halapio or Fielding may have to wait until 2015, while being groomed.

    This was good for a laugh :)

    Show me a single post where Deus was ever "persuaded" to change his opinion of something and I'll eat a cat. :)

    What's silly is thinking in any way that Arrington better than Ryan.
