This guy has been the quintessential "glue" type of player for the Pats that Nink and Slater were before they became "semi-stars". He fills in well in the secondary, is a key ST'er and you never hear any drama out of him. Add to that, he is highly intelligent and teammates have likened him to another coach on the field. Basically, he has been the perfect soldier for Belichick. Then, to add to all that, I read this in today's Globe in the Pats notebook: Despite adversity, Dolphins have grown tighter - Sports - The Boston Globe "Cole has been doing something nice for others every day this month, simply as a way of giving back. The 30-year-old has done some things through social media, giving away game tickets last weekend and offering tickets to this Sunday‚Äôs game in Miami, and also announcing he was going to see a movie, and anyone that showed up got in on him. But a couple of times he‚Äôs done things unannounced, such as paying for everyone‚Äôs meal at Chipotle, or leaving an exorbitant tip for a burger. The late Myra Kraft would be proud." Every team needs more Marquice Coles on the bottoms of their rosters to make them stronger, smarter and better. This is the basic principle that superstar sniffers and whiffers like Dan Snyder and Jerry Jones will never comprehend. .
