    Had a feeling that was coming. Any word on if it's just a 1 for 1 deal with Spach?

    The team thought it more important to sign Troy Brown.

    Not a huge loss. Agreed, would be nice to have Kareem, but I trust the FO.

    So where is Santonio Thomas? LeKevin Smith? These guys still rostered? Practice squad?

    Maybe Hamilton gets signed to replace him on the D-line?

    No, wait, that's wrong.

    I hate to say it, because I like Mike Wright and he's given us some good snaps this year and last, but this might be to the benefit of the team. He'd be playing awful lately, maybe Le Kevin can upgrade the spot a bit behind Wilfork.

    I kept saying to myself on Sunday, "why is Wright getting so many snaps today", I didn't see him get hurt, did anyone else?

    Sometimes I think we are pretty quick to IR someone. I don't remember seeing him get injured, and I didn't think the Colvin injury was as serious as it turned out. Their injuries do not look like obvious IR situations.

    Re: Wright to IR(Merged X2)

    I think you're right, but they have to make a decision based on games missed. With three games left in the regular season, Wright's injury must have looked like something where he couldn't help the team for a while. Same with Colvin, I suppose. :confused:

    Sorry for Wright, but I'd like to see LeKevin get more snaps. he's a pretty strong special teamer, too.

    Re: Wright to IR(Merged X2)

    Let me get this straight: IR a DLineman, and replace him with a...TE?

    We now have only 5 DLinemen and 8 LBs (incl. Izzo and Chad Brown), yet we are carrying 3 QBs, 7 WRs, 3 TEs, and 11 DBs (incl. Baker and E Jackson).

    This makes no sense. Our biggest weakness is our old, slow, lousy-tackling front 7, and there is hardly anybody behind the starters who is capable of providing competant relief.

    If we lose the SB because our old, slow, lousy-tackling front 7 were worn down and allowed long, TD-producing, time-consuming drives, don't be surprised. Because I won't be.

    everyone likes to ***** about how old our front 7 is, but outside of bruschi and seau, they aren't terribly old (chad brown doesn't count).

    vrable & thomas are in their prime. and the DL avg. age is like 25 or something.

    let's please dispense with this myth.

    Seymor, Wilfork, Warren, and Green are old and slow?

    Only 2 TEs on the roster, one just re-injured his ankle and was out a few weeks the last time and the other IS old....not a lot of suprise in adding a reserve to that position

    Whatever happened to Marcellus Rivers? He had actually played TE for the team.

    Per Chris Price, Spach is also from Fresno. Is it the same school of Mankins?

    Also, Wright - 295 lbs and Spach - 250 lbs. Though BB prefers his players playing various roles in the roster, I doubt if Spach is meant to be a substitute for Wright. Or is he?

    I doubt the chargers or steelers will beat the pats when one of them makes the AFCCG, at least not as the teams are currently constituted

    That's what I was thinking too. If the Pats needed a TE, why not just resign Rivers instead of this nobody? Rivers did a fairly good job. ???
