    I was surprised not to see a post on Tavon Wilson today. Perhaps I just missed it. I thought he really looked good on Sunday. Buddy and I watching the game, kept noticing his number. Four tackles, two passes defended, and an INT. Not bad for a rookie DB in his first game. Any other thoughts?

    He played very well as part of the safety rotation and in the dime package. He played over 50% of the defensive reps. Belichick has gotten immediate help from our top 3 draft choices. That is pretty remarkable.

    The kid has gotten high praise in every mediot's post game wrap up and just about every post game thread started on the board.

    Not to worry, he HAS been recognized.

    I too was expecting to see such a thread. Thanks for starting it!

    Wilson is going to be a very good player in Belichick's defense. He is a versatile player who can tackle and cover and do it from a number of spots on the field. Not surprised he played a lot and expect him to continue to do so.

    Like almost everyone else that follows such things, I was surprised when they took him in the draft. But I've liked everything I've ever seen since they made the choice.

    Very few Pats fans were opposed to the Wilson pick. The only questioning referred to WHEN he was picked. So, the silly attacks on these fans should really cease. All of us are elated over how competent he seems to be.

    I found more satisfaction posting on the Draft page and twisting the knife on the Belichick and Tavon Wilson crtics. The guys who have been running their mouths since the Draft.;):)

    So far Tavon has justified my absurd overreactive celebration to his pick in the draft thread.

    Go back to the draft night thread... about 100% initial disapproval of this pick. Only when it became a little clearer just who this kid was, and when some rationales were presented for why we picked him so early, did board members slowly convert to the pick.

    These responses sound like the usual range of comments after any questionable pick. Hey, we may love BB, but we are not his altar boys. What a bore it would be if after every BB move, we also echoed "In BB we trust." There wd be no posts at all, just reverential bows to the lead post.

    It took me about a week to agree with this pick AS A SECOND ROUND PICK.

    I rarely post during the offseason for several reasons. First, I don't follow college football much and I'm not a draft-nik. Second, even if I did and was, I still wouldn't have the time or the experience or knowledge of BB?

    So.....in BB I trust. :D

    Ha, ha, ha! I'd say it "became a little clearer just who this kid was" starting at about 1:00pm Sunday for about 90% of this board and that board members slowly converted to the pick by about 4:00pm Sunday.

    Seriously, you don't honestly think you're fooling anyone, do you?

    For the record, I don't know if I posted it here, but in my mind, I did NOT like the Tavon Wilson pick in round 2. It's only been a game, but let's hope those negative thoughts are proven wrong.

    Delighted for the kid.

    Hope he has a bright career here.

    Delighted that he has proved so many wrong and I'll wager 90% of the people that called him a bust are delighted he proved them wrong.
    The other 10% are just pissed he looked good.

    Its better to say I told you so, than see your team successful for those.

    The only real issue i recall with Tavon was where he was selected.

    Good thing that he is working out considering our disappointments with DBs in recent years.

    Yes he did ok, but remember it was just one game.
    Read somewhere here on the forum that he was completely out of position on his INT scheme-wise.
    He has to learn a lot for sure, but I'm positive that he will be contributing this season already.

    Plus, finally we have a FS that really knows how to tackle.

    P.s.: I'm still waiting for any posts in the Ebner thread...he had an awesome play on one of the kickoffs! :D

    No wonder patsfans.com can't evaluate defense.

    Reality can't be accepted of what actually happens.

    Despite the fact that it was reported after the draft that at least a couple other teams were very interested. Speculation was that there was a good chance he'd be gone by our next pick.

    A lot of posters felt he could have been picked up in the 7th if not as an UDFA.

    Thats not what i saw even tho i am no expert. He looked like he was giving inside help for any deep in. Arrington was always responsible for the deep ball, wilson then made an adjustment and went with arrington and the receiver to help and get the INT.

    At least this is what i saw when watching it back on game pass, will be interesting when the full 22 comes out

    He didn't look completely lost out there as quite a few (if not all) of our safeties did last year. He was usually in the right spot and usually in a position to make a play on the ball. Outside of a few plays that I'm sure Gregory would have liked to have back, he looked pretty solid as well.

    Agreed. If he keeps progressing, and this is not one game luck, we are all going to be pumped as the season moves along.
