    Drew Bledsoe ... like DUH!!! what was he thinking?

    Trying to not offend Terry Glenn.
    Going out of his way not to feature T.O.

    Bledsoe lost his job to Brady due to an injury...and Brady flourished.

    Bledsoe lost his job to Romo due to pure STUPIDITY...Romo is now flourishing.

    Romo ... may not be the best NFL QB ... he is up there and
    he's smart enough to know how he will continue to GET PAID!!!

    Drew: (Thinking) "If I could squeeze this pass into Glenn through triple coverage, maybe he'll like me. Oh wait, there's TO, and he's got the single coverage! ...but he's just gonna drop it again."

    Witten: "I'M WIDE F#!@?ING OPEN OVER HERE!!!!!"

    Drew: "Glenn it is."

    Drew was good for the Pats.

    Anyone who was a fan before '94 will never forget what Drew did for this franchise.

    Brady is a lot better, but there is no need to dump on a guy six years after he left the team.

    Come on! Bledose and TO played 5 1/2 games together. It wasn't like TO lit up the league the final ten games last year with Romo throwing to him. Based on what we see this year, Bledsoe was stupid for not making Parcells hire Jason Garrett as his offensive coordinator.

    TO was very average last year and it wasn't because of Bledsoe.

    There are things you can criticize Bledsoe about, but TO's slump last year wasn't one of them.

    Spacecrime, I agree with you.

    As a fan since the 1970's, I can remember the parade of pathetics who held the position. I liked Grogan for his toughness, but he loved to air passes out into double coverage and more often than not handed the ball to the other team when he chose to do so. Other than him, they were bad or worse.

    Bledsoe was the first step in building the present franchise, and he was the man in 1994 and 1996. He was tough and he had a gun for an arm. I never thought he had the ability to think quickly (which is why Belichick defenses killed him every time and why he was not going to stay here with Belichick as head coach, inured or not), which is why Parcells kept him on a set agenda and he had some great years. He did give Pats fans something to cheer about.

    Brady was the right choice without a doubt, but all the Bledsoe haters with short memories must be blocking out the 2002 season and the glove/no glove throwing grip inaccuracy issues that plagued Brady that season (and don't look at final completion stats for the season, he corrected by the end of that season and recovered but for a good 6 games you were never quite sure where the ball was going). Even the most ardent of Brady backers at that point had to question whether they made the right choice in dumping Bledsoe.

    Bledsoe should have called it a career when he lost the Buffalo starting position as he really looked slow, but his early career made watching Patiots football fun, even without titles. He carried himself with class and lifted a garbage program to respectability. He didn't win the big one, but he was not far off.

    Again for the umpteenth time , Drew was good Qb for the Pats to come out of the Rod Rust/D. Mcpherson era... But he did not work on his game, and that is why he is out of football, and Brady and Romo will be playing in Feb..

    Although Im not a Romo Fan...

    Agree 100%. Let the guy retire in peace. I have many great memories of Drew, and for those who know, he'll not be forgotten

    So, some say, is shooting heroin, but I don't recommend it.

    I remember there was a thread here staing "Pats will retire Bledsoe's number".
    Mostly because he didn't suck as much as previous QBs and he didn't throw TOO much of a hissy fit when Brady took his job.

    This was a few months ago.

    I thought it was ridiculous and this pompous blow-hard basically told me I was a jerk and the Pats would do "the right thing" and retire his number.

    What a swine. And what lousy lazy thinking. Some people need to be smashed.

    SpaceCrime ... you are entitled to your opinion...of course.

    However ... stick to the thread idea here ... Bledsoe refused to throw more balls to T.O. ... how smart was that?

    Last I checked ... this is an opinion board.

    Sure ... Bledsoe played some fine games here. However, if he had not been so thickheaded he could have had 5 more good years. It's not opinion that he refused to change his game ... it's a fact. Sports can be cruel like that ... then again if it's not cruel when they take the money then it's not cruel to criticize them either.

    I once said it this way to someone. You think I'm cruel to Bledsoe? How about the kid who got hurt in college or high school that could have been better than Bledsoe? Cruel is that they never got the chance to go furthur with the talent nature blessed them with. When you take the $$$, you have an obligation to do everything you can to help your team. Bledsoe did not do this ... and for that IMO he deserves the criticism leveled his way.

    Bledsoe's demise was not physical...it was just plain laziness...even he knows that.

    Every time I think that there's not a chance of a post getting more ridiculous than one I've read, I find something like this to take things even lower. Thanks for keeping that streak alive.

    Your post had less to do with reality than the old H.R. Puffinstuff shows ever did.

    Yeah ... and you helped it today also with this beauty ... a laugher :rofl:
    How about Rogers was effective initially because Dallas did not gameplan for him ... any halfwit knows this.

    Without Drew Bledsoe, the New England Patriots no longer exist, and most of the bandwagon fans who bash him would never have become fans.

    I have to agree, I think that Drew just got old and past his prime. He was a statue in the pocket and I just think the game left him behind. I always thought Bledsoe was a solid starter up until his dallas days, no hof qb but he was solid for along time. That much cant be said for alot of qb's.
