    Chris:

    One thing that's forgotten is that the franchise tag was basically a concession on the part of the union to get free agency reduced from six years to four. In other words, the player's union allowed teams to hold ~2% of players hostage so that everyone else could go free sooner.

    Thanks for dropping back and posting links!

    EDIT: Chris, I think you are also forgetting WR coach.

    Nice info on Scott O'Brien, given that there has been some concern about special teams with the departure of Seely.

    Were Sauerbruns best years the same ones he was roiding? If so, when he credits his coach, does that just mean his coach was the supplier?

    Glad to see new ST coach. Seely was alright but i can remember more long returns in the last 2 years then I remember before that.Were did Seely go to Rattgini or to Josh in Denver?:confused:

    This guy brings in a lot of positive experiences from past ST coaching gigs I would love to see our punt return game come back to life. Good read.

    FWIW, I've spoken with a few other players around the league since yesterday, and they all say the same thing -- O'Brien is a great special teams coach. Looks like the Patriots got a good one to replace Seely.

    I always look forward to seeing what new coaches bring, especially on defense. Thanks Chris :)
