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

    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.

    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.

    No clue, my main memory of it was the way it dominated the screen in the old forum layout!

    (Hoo boy...just realized that the "new" forum software started SEVEN years ago. Have I really spent that much of my life on this board? :eek:)

    I remember a three or four years ago I look up the old forum and that thread and counted the replies and it really wasn't as long as remembered I thing about 20 page or so if it was on this type of forum.
    There are far more members now with far larger threads now. The job that Ian has done on this site is increadable. If anyone can find that old forum that would be a hoot.

    I agree, exc. that he isn't really that good a FB, either.
    During Chung's botched fake punt, Morris whiffed on his block attempt,
    so that even if Chung had fielded the ball cleanly, he would've had nowhere to go.

    Bill really missed the boat by not signing one of LeRon McLain, Vonta Leach or Jason Snelling.

    Wilhite is a good one and with Dowling (unless he gets IRd) and Bodden seems like a slim to non shot.

    I'll say Anderson. He's pretty mediocre -- he did all his pass rushing last year in a on a team that had absolutely no secondary, and hasn't been good in years before that (hell even his 12 sack season was about as good as TBC's big sack year). Too much depth and youth at the spot, if Anderson makes it it seems like an indictment of the other players around him, not because of what he brings to the table.

    Also Morris, but that seems obvious.

    My expectations are:
    Anderson, Morris, Wilhite or Butler, Hoyer and Tate have noch future in this team.

    WTF are you talking about? By all accounts Ridley has been one of, if not the best RB in camp? And Vereen will not be cut, his homerun potential will keep him around a while, even if he struggles early on.

    Now onto the Patsfans.com past time:

    I think Willhite and Morris are gone. And I think Faulk will have a hard time making the team, and I wouldn't be shocked to see Guyton bumped by Fletcher.

    Funniest post I've read all day. You do know that Vereen was a 2nd round pick and Ridley was a 3rd?

    Well he does look like Walter Payton when we're playing against the Jets. :cool:
    Thanks for reminding us. BTW we also recently stole Shaun Ellis off your roster.
    How's it feel? :D

    About how much of this is actually serious? :confused:

    I also thought NEM, but something tells me that isn't correct. That was back in the days when I only stalked this board and hadn't even signed up yet. Even then I could tell that NEM was special. And there was that other lunatic, whatshisname.

    It's weird that NEM is still the only Patsfan I've ever met. We should have a "do" or something.
