    WTF kind of an idiot moron is this guy?

    On ESPN'S 1st and 10 segment today,,Skip was saying how Brady will have some problems moving about in the pocket this season with his injured foot and will be more immobile than ever before and therefore struggle and will have a much harder time this season in doing what he did last year

    He says Moss will be nowhere as efficient as he was early last year and both Moss and Brady will suffer with the loss of the almighty Donte Stallworth not being on the field and the defense will key on Moss with consistent double teaming :rolleyes:

    He then goes on to say Philadelphia was the team that 'figured them out' with the blueprint crap to beat the Pats and NE was never the same after that.

    And Not one mention of the fact that the team still has Welker and also Gaffney who may certainly provide more punch to the #3 WR than Stallworth ever did - Total lack of respect for these two solid receivers.

    What an A-Hole Bayless is - I know for sure he is a Colts fan as he picks them just about every year so in reality its really no surprise.

    The offensive line and regression to the mean may be bigger factors, but suggesting that the offense will feel the loss of a starting WR seems reasonable to me. Using derogatory language towards people with whom you disagree does not.

    WOW. I don't know what to say, other than, wow. Is he really that stupid? I guess other teams are going to double team welker as well. That leaves us with Gaff, and Watson. Then there's faulk on the screens, and Maroney, and Jordon......sh*t, we have no one to throw to....we're doomed:rolleyes:

    We weren't the same after the Philly game but that had more to do with moving into winter than anything else IMO. You can make the same argument that we were more prolific when Stallworth was playing more early but, again, I think it was more weather related. Including the Philly game we averaged 29.7 PPG from that game to the end of the regular season even in some harsh conditions.

    Stallworth wasn't the starting WR at the end of the season. He'd been replaced by Gaffney.

    The key thing that no one in the media seems to know is that Gaffney had replaced Stallworth in the rotation by the end of the year. SO in turn Skip is saying this team will struggle because of the loss of a 4th wide out, Moss being double teamed (there is a shocker), and a foot injury (which by all accounts is not serious though I will give him this one because I am concerned about it too).


    Brilliant yes brilliant. I knew there was a reason I thought so highly of Skip (sarcasm real thick here)

    Remember, Moss had a 'severe' hamstring injury last year that the media was saying could potentially get hime cut. BB is a master of the team motivation thing keeping Brady out to be 100% instead of 90%. Throw that stuff up on the locker room wall, BB.

    Remember when Bayless said that Coughlin's decision to play his starters against the Patriots in the last game of the regular season last year was the "worst pre-playoff coaching decision of all time"?

    Brady could be affected by the injury, he may not be. Who knows? Why try to make any sort of prediction on that right now when we'll be able to see how well he moves in the pocket in less than three weeks, maybe even tomorrow.

    The Giants paid more attention to how the Browns played the Patriots than the Eagles, if you believe some of the reports that have come out. If your memory is hazy, the Patriots' offense scored 27 points in that game and it started a six game streak where the offense scored 39.2 points per game. What does that say? "Blueprints" don't mean squat unless you have a) the coaching staff to accurately determine the best "blueprint" and b) the players to implement such a blueprint. You also have to bank on Belichick dropping the ball in terms of recognizing the weaknesses and making adjustments. How many teams in the league, let alone ones the Patriots play this year, enter the season looking like they have the firepower to implement such "blueprints"? Few, if any.

    Give me something a little more legitimate than bleuprints, Skip, you douchenozzle.

    Does anyone really remember Donte doing anything special? I remember him scoring a touchdown against Dallas, and that's it.

    Bayless needs to grasp at straws to justify his incredibly stupid prediction that the Patriots will have a losing record this season. Does Bayless know that Stallworth only started 9 games last year and none in the playoffs?

    I do think the loss of Stallworth will hurt the offense if Jackson or someone else doesn't step up into the #4 WR slot, but it definitely won't be a devestating blow.

    Stallworth did have some big plays. Let's not minimize what he did. But he was inconsistent. He was a big factor in some games most notably the Cowboys game, but he was also a virtual non-factor in others.

    Whenever I read the name Skip Bayless, a factual adjective almost always follows. The law of averages continues.

    IMO Skip Bayless should be skipped in regards to anything he says. He represents ESPN which equals Satan....

    Now that I think about it, Bayless is a rare bread......I have never actually heard him utter something useful. Most of the time with the talking heads it's good and bad, but Bayless is 100% worthless!

    More bashing from the ESPN mediots. Man I wished Trump owned that network. I would tune in just to see him say "YOU'RE FIRED!!" to Skippy "Colts" fanboy.

    I'm honestly not one to automatically bash anybody that isn't 100% positive on the Pats. However, Bayless has always been a tool, who's takes are wrong more than they are right. I remember him pounding his fist and being positive that the Celtics have zero chance of beating the Lakers.

    "The offensive line and regression to the mean may be bigger factors,"

    Did the offensive line really regress or did it have more to do with Brady having a bum ankle in the Super Bowl and as a result could not move around enough to avoid all the hits and sacks......................I blame him being hurt more than the line sucking in the Super Bowl..........

    No offense to Donte, but his role by the end of the season was catching wide receiver screens, and thats about it. Losing him will have such a minimal impact on the offense. I was very disappointed in Stallworth and I don't think he lived up to expectations or grasped the offense. Gaffney is a more reliable receiver.

    I meant the current health status of the offensive line is likely to mean new personnel at the place where continuity is most important. Cannot expect to maintain performance while shifting personnel on the line. Regression to mean refers to the fact that every record-breaking offense has suffered a drop the following year. I do not expect the same productivity this year simply because last year was so off the charts.

    First, I dont like Bayless, his remarks are pointed toward contreversy instead of the truth. But him making note of us losing our #3/4 reciever and replacing him with...aaaah... Chad Jackson?? That is a fair critique. Now Dante came here on a obvious one year deal to make a name for himself and have a chance to win a championship. There never was any intention to sign the guy long-term, he knew it. As it got cold his numbers werent the only one's to drop precipitously......RANDY MOSS DOESNT LIKE THE COLD!! Look up the stats and you can see that both Stallworth and Moss dont do so well in the cold(read-HOME PLAYOFF GAMES). Gaffney is the "more reliable" guy, something that is needed in such games. But this is another reason I have suggested that the pats might be better off with a Jerivicious-type over CJ. Dont get me wrong, I see CJ's potential, but I still love that quote"potential can get you fired". I want a sure handed guy for my 4th wr, and I will give away speed to get it. We should have enough of that in WRs 1-3.
