    I remember a time when it had more insightful posts than the garbage nonsense so common these days. What happened?

    It seems that with an increase in membership, there is not as much quality and lots of panicky folks.. too much hysteria and lack of trust in this franchise or maybe it is the Red Sox effect???

    Cornerbacks a MAJOR weakness

    I don't remember. There wasn't much garbage last offseason aside from the Randy Moss BS because what was there to be worried about? I definitely remember some panic because of Deion Branch leaving. :rolleyes:

    It is a RED Sox effect...I think so..panic is much the norm of the past..engrained in red SOx fans..and now because it's inside their heads, really somehow transfered to the Pats...It's been around for yaers..lesser so and NOW MORE!! A wave...I agree about quality as well..in fact I am embarrassed by some of teh threads..and MANY of these folks have not followed teh team long..and don't realize HOW LUCKY they are to be Patriot fans now..as opposed to when the franchise was up and down and unstable..

    When? Come on, this board has always been going to hell. I remember back in the "there is NO way Patten makes this team" days, all the nostalgia for the good old days of serious, thoughtful football talk. :)

    There are waves of BS, but inevitably a few remarkably insightful, well-researched threads break through and remind us that you can learn more about this team here than anywhere else. So...hey you! (Whoever you are.) Start one of those threads now, ok? Thanks!

    The Patton threads were at least about a player and whether he would make it or not...as opposed to WTF is going on??? Agreed..both BS threads..but these I think exponentially worse..

    Perhaps we should let more trolls in, maybe then Patriot fans would band together instead of attacking each other. :rolleyes:

    If you don't subscribe to the "sky is falling" theory, you're labeled a homer. If you do subcribe to the "sky is falling" theory you're Chicken Little. For whatever it's worth (and I'm a short-timer here), it seems to me that a lot of people here seriously under-estimate the quality of coaching, player evaluation and over-all talent level of the on-field personnel. I, like everyone else at times, question certain moves and non-moves. But, honestly, when I read someone here railing out of control about a personnel decision or coaching move, I have to ask myself the rhetorical question: who knows more, the poster or Belichick/Pioli? I know where I'm laying my money...

    I've been saying it for at least 3 years now.

    We used to drive our own threads here. We made our opinions and we discused until the topic was dead. Now, the media drives this board and it ruins the board. Every damn article that is printed is posted by the Googlers in the forum .. many of those articles have no merit and it ruins the discussion of the team. We have posters racing to be the 1st one to post some crazy media dribble .. and it sucks.

    My 2-cents ... ;)

    Where are the Chief trolls when you need them? Than we can band together.

    Another question...ARE there Chief trolls?

    A better question are their chief fans passionate enough about their team to defend them??

    Yeah, well I stayed in a Holiday Inn Express last night, and I think claiming those two guys off waivers will be the downfall of this franchise. So there!

    I think you're looking at this the wrong way. See, this is how I feel:

    Homers and Chicken Littles post together in perfect harmony
    Side by side on my interweb, oh lord, why dont we?

    We all know that Pats fans are the same where ever we go
    There is good and bad in every thread,
    We learn to post, we learn to give
    Each other what Patsfans.com need to survive together alive.

    Homers and Chicken Littles post together in perfect harmony

    Homers, Chicken Littles posting in perfect harmony
    Homers, Chicken Littles, ooh

    We all know that Pats fans are the same where ever we go

    But trolls can go **** themselves

    Oh yeah………….
