    That would crack the door for Feely....

    There has to be a trade in the works then. Hoyer looked good at times last night, but no way we have an Undrafted FA as primary back up.

    Re: Schefter--Walter to be released

    Not surprising. I thought last night was a battle for the 3rd QB position and Walter clearly lost. I don't see either Walter or Hoyer being the #2 QB.

    This sux, because now Bill is going to throw away yet another precious draft pick on yet another mediocre (at best) vet.

    And interesting, have to note, how Reiss spins his coverage.

    In the official morning Globe, the same quote was reported. However, Reiss reported it as a professional statement. In this version, he comments on Walter's emotions:

    He chose not to comment on that in the Globe. That's a shame.

    Re: Andrew Walter to be released

    This is probably the case. I never liked Walter- I didn't think he handled press coverage well in game 1 of the preseason.

    Re: Schefter--Walter to be released

    The fact Hoyer played the whole game meant one of two things: Walter definitely was already on the roster, or Walter was definitely not making the roster. If he's being released then the move for another QB (Feely) has already been worked out; the Pats would be at a much lesser bargaining position if they were to try to negotiate a trade after Walter had been released.

    Re: Andrew Walter to be released

    Deus - you're listening to EEI at the moment as well, who was Price just talking about who played well enough to make it difficult to get the PS? Was it Ninkovich? I missed a minute or two there.

    Re: Andrew Walter to be released

    Right on, the guy sucks. I'm sure his comments after the game helped, too. Take your crappy attitude back to Oakland, Andrew :p

    If I had to guess, I'd say that a Watson-for-Feeley trade is impending, or (hopefully), Smith and a pick for him.

    Or he will trade whichever TE he was planning to cut anyway to the Eagles for AJ Feeley.

    Stirring the pot again, eh Deus? :singing:

    I'll say this much: If Coach wanted a LOT of free face time and Patriots exposure in the Press, all he'd have to do is just LEAK the idea that the Pats were THINKING about Vick.

    Heh.

    Re: Schefter--Walter to be released

    Yes because we all know BB is terrible at gaining picks when he needs to :rolleyes:

    One of the reasons you stockpile draft picks is so you can move them for veterans. Chances of a 5th rounder being as good as Alex Smith (for example) are very slim. In this case, Smith didn't work out obviously, but it's still a good risk to take

    Also interesting that this was done prior to completing a trade, should that be in the plans. You'd sort of think the addition would precede the subtraction.

    Re: Andrew Walter to be released

    No prob, same here. I think it was Ninkovich, but I still can't figure out how he has PS eligibility...
