    On NEST tonight, Mike Vrabel was on and was asked about his playing TE.

    He said that he was open on Evans TD and was waving for the ball. He said (jokingly) that scoring TD's was like being on crack. The more you score, the more you want.

    Brady said that he's not going to throw to him anymore if he waving his arm in the end zone, again jokingly.

    I just love watching Vrabel humiliate other linebackers. I think watching Vrabel score TDs is like being on crack, too. :D

    I seem to recall Dexter Manley and Lawrence Taylor making similar comments. ;)

    I love Vrabel. I love his versatility. I want his legend to grow, to make it all the easier for him to be a successful coach of the Buckeyes one day. But if he never gets another pass thrown his way I'll be happy, because it will mean that the Pats are deep and healthy at TE.

    Realistically, of course, Vrabel seems to be first backup TE off the bench in power sets, and our TEs are a bit fragile, so he'll probably see more action on offense.

    Is it me, or have I seen a lack of plays from Vrabel on defense this year? I'll add Colving in as well - there's been no pass rush so far, and it's their responsibility - what's the deal?

    Simple answer. He and Rosey have been playing more in coverage this year. the rush has been coming from the front 3/4. Witness the multiple sacks are mostly from our DL.

    That won't last all season. Just when you think you know what we are doing on D- BB will change it up.

    Honestly, I can never tell what they're in!! One minute it seems like they're in a 4/3, and the next minute it looks like they're in a 3/4. Vrabel's outside, Vrabel's inside. They switch it up constantly.

    But regardless, Vrabel does seem a bit slower this year, perhaps he's just still trying to adjust to the two different positions and is a little tentative.

    I like him too, and the previous posts discuss him and Colving playing coverage - it was the Denver game that had me irate - I have Broncos fans at work to deal with
