    Watching AD attempt to rush the passer is really painful. Its almost as if he isn't trying. The one or two times per game I've seen him get a good rush in is when the blocker miss his blocks. If the pats do win the SB, AD should thank em for the ride because he would have rode along with history instead of actually contributing.

    Wow, and here I saw him chasing Phillip Rivers all over the place. I must have been hallucinating.

    As mentioned on EEI, everyone said this crap about Colvin after his first year, and look at what happened when we lost him.

    He's made plenty of great plays this year, and as far as I know, he hasn't contributed to a loss yet, so give him a chance.

    yeah I guess he didnt help out much by allowing Vrable to move back outside and possibly having his best year as a pro.. not much impact at all

    Lomo is made of glass.
    Ellis Hobbs sucks.
    Bru and Seau are too old.
    Moss is a cancer.
    Big Sey's a wimp.
    Wilfork's a thug.
    Merriweather's a bust.
    Geno sucks.
    Welker won't contribute.
    Brady's "body language."

    ...And NOW, A. Thomas is along for the ride.:rolleyes:

    I think I'll file that statement in the same spot I put the others.

    I think Adalius is still learning the defense, and that has mitigated his effectiveness somewhat. Next year should be better for him.

    obvisouly he didnt help much, as he is no longer inside whereby Vrabel is still outside:rolleyes: In other words, Vrabel could still be outside with or without the bandwagoner.

    It's not exactly being a "hater" to say that AD has been disappointing this season. He has. DEFINITELY.

    That said, Pat Kirwin was saying today (or yesterday) that he expects Thomas to take a big jump forward next year, and attributes at least part of the disappointment to the fact that this system is hard to get "in your bones" in just one off-season.

    Do you actually watch the games, and if so, do you have any idea what you are looking at?

    Or are you just trying to be an idiot?

    I am thinking this might be our "special friend" from buffalo....

    So far he has claimed BB doesn't blitz and AD doesn't do anything.

    Where to start?
    First, repeatively is not a word in the english language.
    Secondly, Thomas' job is not to rush every play and beat LTs.
    Thirdly, in our defense if an OLB is being blocked by the LT, THAT ALONE accomplishes the scheme, because a G will have to slide out to block Seymour. (This, by the way is proof you aren't watching because Thomas is rarely one on one with the LT)
    Fourthly, a DE who gets 16 sacks in a season, is considered a great pass rusher, and is getting one a game out of 30-35 pass attempts, which I would consider OWNED by the LT who blocked him 34 out of 35 times.
