    Ever heard of this skinny fella?

    Or, how about a Sam Adams?

    Why am I starting to get thirsty for a good beer?

    He's perfect for the role

    At the time Big Ted left he said he wanted to play two more years then coach nose tackles. This is the second year and we have a young NT who would greatly benfit from sitting out a series or three and being tutored by one of the all time greats at the position. He's the perfect backup for Wilfork. I say let's get him!

    Guys:

    Ted Washington is 38 years old, 400 pounds, and finished. We might as well bring back Otis Smith to play corner. Or Gino Cappiletti as our field goal kicker.

    I still like the idea of ol Ted coming back to tutor VW and also help
    out with an occasional down or 2.
    Anyways. I think BB will make the right decision.

    Afterall, he knows a bit more than me on these matters.

    No way we could afford Ted. He left for the big payday and hasn't had it long enough! After all he still has to feed his family - - - assuming of course they're able to get anything after he feeds himself!! :rolleyes:

    Alot of people were convinced that Washington was finished a few years back when we signed him too. They were wrong. I think he has a year left in him especially considering he would only need to play one down per series.

    I just don't buy the tutor thing. I think that's one of those things that sounds good and is interesting to talk about, but really doesn't end up happening in most instances. Ive heard former coaches say basically the same thing.

    I distinctly recall times ... when he was here ...
    that i wondered whether he'd be able to waddle on/off the field before the next play.

    A round-trip each series
    might be too much to ask.

    Such short memories

    Y'all wern't making all these fat jokes when TW was here plugging up the "A" gap were you? His value is limited to a few a few 3-4 teams. I suggest we be one of them. I'll bet RAC will be all over him.

    Yeah, I can't imagine what his food bill is for a month. It HAS to be huge!

    Sounds nice in theory, but with the spread of the 3-4, there are other suitors for his services when you talk NT. And lest we forget, he is still a double team magnet for a 4-3 team looking to keep a smaller MLB clean. I'd rather see if BB can score a DT in the draft who can learn behind Wilfork.

    Guys,I really can't believe we are even having this discussion.VW Came on STRONG last year.Finally looking like the DT we had been hoping for when we drafted the big fella.He needed some time.With Teddy back there in the middle there this year.We should see even more of a fire under his arse,Given the fact,Bruschi,Colvin,Vrabel, will really be are only given starters he knows that we have big play potential if he can hold down that line.

    Ther are quite a few NT types in the draft this year. We can grab a guy in the 3-5 round and use him to give VW a few plays of.

    We don't need to spend FA money on TW or Sam Adams. Although it would be kinda fun to see Sam Adams in a Patriot uniform like his dad.

    I don't think anyone is talking about replacing Wilfork but he does need someone to spell him at times. We really don't have a legit NT behind him on the depth chart right now. If you say Dan Klecko I'll reach through my monitor and slap you. :D

    Like huskertalk said

    I'd like to see TW as a backup. He might go for it as it might be his last chance for another ring before he retires. Of course TW has been around long enough to realize that it the end it's all about the moolah. Still being on a wicked loser like Oakland may change his mind. My prediction is that RAC brings him in to fill the role I described previously.

    what you just wrote would give the pats the option to drop into a 4-3 at will with seymour, vince, washington, and warren. dude, that is sick. no, i didnt suggest a full change to a 4-3, but a qb would wet himself seeing that line with colvin, vrabel, and bruschi behind it. who would you double team?

    Washington was great when he was here, I would rather have Sam Adams as a back-up to Vince now. Adams is big enough 6'4" 335(at least that what they say he weighs) to shut down the middle, and he is a much quicker than Washington. We do not have a bcak-up NT, and Adams (if he can be had for the right price) would be perfect for that. Plus if they switched to a 4-3, the Pats would have afront four of Seymour, Wilfork, Adams, Warren!

    I think it would be fine to have Ted as backup NT for a year.

    I dont think its realistic.
    If he is going to be a backup, he will probably just retire. Why take a 400+ lb 38 yr old body through camp and preseason to get 10 snaps on a Sunday?

    Beyond that, the money he want to forego retirement would probably be a lot higher than the value he would give us.

    This spot should be filled by a young player.

    It is posts like this that has persuaded me to change my mind about TW.
    These are good points, AJ. I had forgotten how old he was.
    I had also forgotten that from what I have seen and heard, ol Ted wasn't exactly a charmer in the locker room. Most of us have seen his surly attitude toward Roman Phifer when Roman had the audacity to sit on HIS spot on the bench.
    Yeah. I'm in the nay to Ted camp now.

    Maybe Sam Adams would be a better fit for us?

    Ted Washington is still one of my all-time favorite Pats! How many can say that after playing --- what --- 14 regular season games for us? If he'd play for cheap, let him take 12 snaps a game while Wilfork rests!

    I wouldn't sit in his spot on the bench.

    I mean, what if he didn't see you? :bricks:

    You've got them in the draft guide? Please post a list on the NT thread in the draft watering hole, my list needs updating.

    Vince, whether passing or running he has the short field burst to make plays. Sey off the edge wouldn't be as quick to the QB, he is more effective playing inside or over the tackle in the 3-4. Your 4-3 would be more effective if we had a sideline to sideline rocket like Vilma or Tatupu to screen behind the D-line mountains - whoops, we do, Monty... :p
