    I mean that Pats are bad, bad, bad. But this board sucks. I realize it's free and all, but I've never seen a board like this. Just slow as all get-out.

    What can be done with the Pats? I feel too sorry for them to recommend a "punishment" for the whole team. But more and more, the remedy of "decimation" makes sense to me.

    In the Roman days you see, when a Roman legion showed cowardice in battle, they would split the legion, or whatever part of it showed cowardice, into 10 men units. They would then instruct each 10 man unit to choose and man who was particularly unfit to serve with them, and then after choosing, kill him.

    Now, killing is out of course, we have laws against that. But in this case I think 5 players need to be cut or at least benched. We need a change and this is a way to change course after a humiliating kick-in-the-crotch blowout like this. A shutout. To the lowly dolphins. Cellar dwellers of the AFC East. Well, well, well, at least all that 'happy talk' about SuperBowl and 'do we have the best DL in football or what' are OVER.

    So who do we bench/fire? I am going to include coaches in this too as they are a large part of this infamy.

    First fire Daniels. I know, I know, it's not all his fault. Fire him anyway. A symbol has to be made!

    Next bench Light. He sucks. After this season, he's cut.

    Next, cut Dillon after this season. He's too slow. This isn't so much a punishment as a recognition of reality. He's just too old.

    Who else can we punish / demote / cut / fire?

    This post is hilarious. I had my doubts about you mcbee, but I like your sense of humor. Just watch some of the more chronic doom-and-gloomers wander in and take up the torch.

    I suspect this board will start getting better after you leave.

    As a guy who works with video, media and computers all day, let me just say computers have and always will malfunction, and whatever is going on with the server, I cannot possibly blame Ian or anyone else for that.

    Does "cowardice" mean giving up your loyalties and renouncing your side when your team "falls" to 9-4?

    I forget who it was who wrote today "I hereby relinquish all rights as to calling myself a Pats fan. For this year at least."

    And now YOU'RE looking for "cowards"???????

    You do buy underwear in bulk, don't you?

    Dillon played well against the Miami Dolphins and frankly the New England Patriots should have ran the football more.

    How about we cut you from the PatsFans message board?

    Excellent suggestion.

    This is, incidentally, basically the same system they use on an annual basis at General Electric, where the non-performers are released every year.

    I believe in the case of the Patriots however most of the cuts are done in training camp.

    They looked pretty good in the pre-season.

    That was my impression from yesterday's debacle, I'll hopefully know better when I crunch some tape, but I thought they needed to pound the ball directly at Taylor and Roth more often.

    "Tonight, you pukes will sleep with your rifles! You will give your rifles a girl's name. "

    At this point, I don't even know if Gunnery Sgt. Hartmann could help the Patriots.

    I'm not paid to play though, the patriots are warriors and thus analagous to the Roman Legions. I am (was) just a lowly fan. So your analogy falls short.

    Your an idiot. You are comparing the Patriots to Roman Legions. If you wanted to make a corolation between war and football, the modern day warfare would be the closest to what football is.

    Now go, get off the form. I'm sure your marine boyfriend is waiting in bed.

    Well, instead of getting off the forum, he decided this little Roman Legion idea needed it's own thread. As if being called an idiot for that statement in one thread wasn't enough.. :rolleyes:

    YOu don't tell me what to do you flea.

    You can't even spell "You're" and "correlation".

    The inability to spell 'you're' is correlated with stupidity.

    I never said I was smart to begin with, I'll admit I'm an idiot...


    Oh sorry, gave him an ego boost.


    At least I have faith in my team, rather then you, bandwagon. Go back to your Ravens forum.

    Well now I feel bad for making fun of you.

    I always feel bad for the little guy.

    Not a ravens fan. I'll probably root for the Chargers in the playoffs though. I like everyone there except LT.

    It's funny to me that you're mocking someone else's intelligence while your posts sound like something out of the mouth of a qwikemart worker.
