    I forgot the story, the context, the player in question... Can someone remind me ? I like stories.

    David Patten. And yes, he did.

    Incredibly, hundreds of argumentative posts on PatsFans failed to influence this outcome.

    Notwithstanding his college success in the role, there is NO WAY Bill Belichick will be the Patriots' long snapper.

    Not a ton of Jags to sift this year. I'm going with Brandon Tate. Price is outplaying him at WR and can take his return job, too.

    TFB. Mallett is young, has a stronger arm and is on a cheaper contract. Just Kidding!

    Ron Brace - there is too much competition at his position in the unproven/JAG category.

    Someone who wants it more (Pryor/Deadrick/Richard) will have his roster spot.

    LOL. So we should have gone into 2011 with only 2 RB then (BJGE/Woody) to make room for al the extra QB/WR/TE? The Pats other RB's were past long in the tooth.

    Several years ago there was a thread that somebody started, stating quite emphatically that 'there is no way David Patten makes this team'. The thread elicited hundreds of responses; Patten not only went on to make the roster, he had an extremely productive career with the Pats.

    Now as kind of an inside joke, there seems to be an annual 'there is no way (fill in the blank) makes the team' comment or thread during training camp.

    Hope that helps, I'm sure some of the other veteran forum members can fill in some additional details from that original thread.

    No Jersey Selected

    This thread makes me feel old. Remember the Patten thread like it was yesterday.

    What I cannot remember is who started it. Does anyone remember?

    Yeah, he'd have to be my early pick. Also, I really can't see Sammy Morris actually making the team, unless the Pats really value having a fullback.
