    Move on, guys. That ship has sailed. Mankins is gone. Out.

    So, who is the nasty, relentless, mauler of an SOB that will replace Mankins?

    So true. Even Mike Compton and Joe Andruzzi didn't play as poorly as Mankins has in the playoffs.

    Nick Kaczur. When he steps in, start praying that neither he nor Neal nor Vollmer nor Light suffers any long term injuries. Such injuries taking place would mean that either Connolly or Ohrnberger would need to step in at OG. If that happens, get the stretcher ready because Brady is going to need it in order to get off the field.

    maybe the offensive scheme had something to do with that, no?

    I mean there is much less to hang on an OG when you employ a 2TE dink and dunk offense.

    you guys need to stop hanging one game on a player unless you also want to get rid of brady for his hairball against the ravens in January

    Kaczur lacks the mobility to play on the left side

    Pass-happy scheme or not, 6 sacks in 4 games is just pathetic.

    Connolly... perhaps.

    Ohrnberger... who knows? He could be nasty for all we know. I wouldn't exactly bet money on it, though.

    I am going to say that the ship has not sailed and that it will be Mankins.

    Bottom line is if a team wanted him they could have had him all they would have had to do was give up draft compensation and pay the guy. Well if Mankins wants to be traded nothing has changed since he was free to find a home for said compensation.

    No Jersey Selected

    Right now, I do believe that Mankins will be here and play out the season with the Patriots. It's in his best long-term interest to do so, and hopefully his agent or some of the other players will have speaks with him and calm him down.

    If other teams had wanted him, he was available all along. Obviously, those other teams don't want to pay that price either. so Mankins' options are being reduced on a steady basis.

    Unless some other team wants to pay him far more than he is worth, his two options are to play for New England, or sit out the season. If he does the latter, then he STILL will be an RFA come next year.

    I just don't understand what he's trying to accomplish. He's only hurting himself at this time.

    I don't know, lets just hope the "nasty, relentless, mauler" doesn't commit as many costly penalties as Mankin$ did. :rolleyes:

    Gee, It's seems as if we just drafter 2 top flight TE...... wonder if that means any scheme changes upcoming. :rolleyes:

    Not necessarily at Guard. We'll see.

    as a side note......... You have 48 posts here..... 98% of them argumentative with everyone else. I'm beginning to detect a distinct odor in here.

    May sound crazy but isnt Kevin Mawae still available? He was a mean sob and could be had for dirt cheap $.

    Wrong. Kaczur lacks the mobility to be a top ten tackle on our team. His mobility issues will be isolated at guard.

    Cold-blooded, but true. Ted Larsen should be too busy learning the Center position to help at Guard, and the others - Bustey, Connelly, OBurger, Wendell & Wise - aren't worthy of being backups on the roster of any team with legit SB aspirations.

    Way to cover your bases, Bill.

    Besides, didn't Kaczur start at LT in 2005 after Light was IRed early in the season?

    I think that Oxy will be OK at LG, though not as good 'n nasty as Mankin$; unfortunately, our backup quality at the interior positions (exc. for hopefully Larsen at Center) is now Jack Shyte.

    I have to admit, I'm getting tired of hearing about that. There's a whole holy hell of a lot of "responsibility" to go around for "that game" and the OL and Mankins deserve their share. But singling him out is beyond ridiculous.

    Brady returned from a career threatening injury last season. His line was given the job of protecting him. He took only 16 sacks on the season, less or a lot less than any elite QB but Peyton. Logan protected his blindside. Week after week.

    Anybody who wants to say, "Good riddance. We're just as well off without him." Fine, it's a free country and a free Board. But, let's all agree to be accountable to each other for what we said in June on the morning of January 3rd when next season is over. Personally, I think losing Mankins is a big risk and I'm willing to stick by that and be proven right or wrong at the end of the season.

    I just don't want to see the Pats move into the "Post Mankins" era without one big try at keeping him around.

    Well he drafted Ohrn-busto in the 4th round and he's had a year of "training", so there's no way he should not be SOMEWHAT ready to play. I mean Mankins started first year.

    If Ohrnbusto can't be a legit contender then he's a bust.

    Actually this is very intriguing.

    I never liked the guy but that was as the opponent.....I could get used to his cheap ways if they are working for us. With no need at the position I would say no thanks but we might have a need now.

    In medical terminology LT means left as opposed to RT...meaning right but there would be a circle around the letters something i can't do here. LG is a brand of T.V. as far as i know.

    In the end I think Mankins will be a good boy and play this year.

    Yes, Mankins will play for the patriots for one more year, if he must. However, his cooperation and effort will depend on the level of compensation on his one year contract. With a $1.5M contract, the team will get minimum cooperation and attendance, with Mankins meeting the minimums required for contract compliance. If the patriots give him a more normal one-year contract as they did with Samuel, Mankins will give his normal effort, knowing that he will be a free agent after the season.

    So, a 4th rounder that can't start in his second year is a bust. Nonsense!

    Brady took a holy helluva lot more hits than just the 16 sacks on the stat sheet. Most of the blame there can be laid at the feet of the RT (and future LG?), but again, Mankin$ deserves his share of the blame, too.

    I do agree, though, that I would also like to see an amicable resolution, as in: a new long-term contract that is fair to both sides. Unfortunately, I see this ending the same way the Meion Branch situation ended: in a trade.

    That dirty bastard Mawae has been a Center (and a dirty one at that) for so long, I don't think that he could switch positions at this stage of his dirty, injury-causing career. Not that I'd want his dirty ass, anyway. A better option might be Chester Pitts, if his knee (microfracture surgery) passes muster. If it doesn't, then C/Gs Dennis Norman & Duke Preston are still avail., as are former Tackles Levi Jones & Mike Gandy.
