    The Pats to sign Michael Hoomanawanui?

    My dream of the 10 TE set is one step closer to reality. According to Mike Reiss, the Pats are going to sign Michael Hoomanawanui if he passes his physical:

    If he signs and I buy his jersey,will his last name have a small indicator notice that says 'continued on other side?' :confused:

    Looks like we are slowly turning into the northern St. Louis Rams

    Can't wait to hear Gil Santos try to pronounce that name. Probably a good thing that Gino is no longer doing the broadcasts. Yikes.

    We're pretty serious about this tight end thing, eh.

    Makes sense. We will never get caught in the situation we were in this past February. We have two tight end positions, they are important cogs in the offense, and we need backups for each.

    Bedard has a nice article on the topic today on the Globe. With Shiancoe down, we needed a backup at Y behind Gronk. Shiancoe to short-term IR makes sense. I hope he sticks. I think people underestimate his production and what he can bring to the table.

    Too bad he wasn't here during the preseason. Would have loved to see how Don Criqui and Randy Cross would have butchered his name.

    He probably won't have to unless someone gets hurt. I doubt they will have 4 active, let alone when one was signed 3 days before the open.

    I also hope if they put Shiancoe on short term IR they don't live to regret using that option in week 1. He and Ballard will be eligible to activate within a week of each other.

    I think someone needs to remind Josh that the Rams are not very good.

    No Jersey Selected

    Jets may have the wild cat.

    Patriots will have the Tiger End.

    That would be interesting. I really want to hear Gronk try to pronounce that name, though.

    That tight end meeting room is going to be one cozy little place. I hope the Patriots never serve chili for lunch.

    I still don't understand the love for players who played on other teams whose teams were the worst in football most of the past few years and those players we sign couldn't even make those bad team rosters.

    If you can't make the Rams team,can you really be worthwhile?

    I think the Patriots need more of McDaniels' guys from the Broncos and Rams. Considering, you know, they were offensive juggernauts.

    At least we can give thanks that Josh didn't use his Jedi mind trick to get BB to sign Tebow :eek:
