    Man what was that? Taking a swing and poking a guy in the face? Between this, the questionable Losman hit and poking Brandon Jacobs in the eye last year, I hate to admit it but on the field Vince is kinda an a hole

    If by intense, you mean 'dirty' and 'cheap' then yeah, he is VERY intense.

    But hey, you draft a player from 'the U', you get a player from 'the U'.

    And that player is usually a jackass.

    Productive, yes.

    A jackass, yes.

    For all we know, that guy deserved to get slapped and told off.

    And therefore, the team deserved to get thirty yards in penalties.

    Sound logic there.

    I love Vince not just for his play on the field but also for his talking about ending his career here.

    What he did was stupid, though. He's too smart to get roped into that sort of crap. I'm sure it wasn't unprovoked but regardless of who started it you've got to walk away.

    I don't think he cheapshotted Losman anymore than Brady was cheapshotted. Sometimes people just lose their cool. This isn't the same as Seymour stepping on Glenn's facemask.

    Yeah. The thing I hate about stuff like this is that it makes it awful hard to rightly condemn other teams for doing crap like that when your own team is pulling it too.

    Two personal fouls in a row? I'd think BB gave him a pretty good talking to.

    Oh pahleeze, this is the home of the best fans on earth - what else would you expect but a rush to judgement. They'd rather condem their own on limited evidence that have some other teams trolls accuse them of being blind homers...

    Sometimes intensity comes with a price. And absent it they rip you anyway...

    Let's pretend you were a fan of another team and heard about a guy making two personal fouls in a row (rather blatantly). What would you think of him?

    Would it be favorable?

    Are we supposed to give Vince a break for 'playing hard'?

    You're right, it isn't.

    There should be no prima donna type plays which are selfish and end up costing the team.

    Again, change the situation. What if the game were close and the 30 yards of penalties won the game for the other team by putting them in FG position?

    Look at yourself... you're asking Boston sports fans to be compassionately unbiased. Not going to happen.

    By the way... did anybody see that pre-game "map poll" of who all the states thought would win? 3 NE states picked us, 45 states (2 were tied) picked the Donkeys.

    They didnt show much in the replay, but it looked like their lineman pushed him, and he got back in his face, and poked his chin. Didnt look like a big deal. It was the penalty on the next play against him, that I didnt see, and have no idea what happened.

    Vince was getting worked in the pile at the end of some runs and the Donkeys were saying some....not so nice things about his entire family tree. He had enough and snapped.

    I love Vince. He's the man.....and a BIG man at that.

    It wasn't. But God forbid people on this site are just happy with a win...they would rather b!tch and moan about something.

    And, it looked like Vince was going at it with the same guy that cheap shotted Rodney on the second fumble recovery. So, if he did that to Rodney, he was most likely playing a little dirty himself and Vince took issue with it.

    But alot of "fans" on here aren't happy unless they are crying about people being made of glass, getting benched for a rookie, or being a blown draft pick.

    They cut to a break right before Vince got his second 15 yarder but it looked like he was going over to Shanny to say something ( probably about the broncos lovely way of illegal blocking...)

    I was at the game and denver was doing a lot of pushing and hitting after the whistle espesialy #74 and #50. Besides Wilfork was prob reacting to the cut blocking that denver is notorious for, just before the first one he got right up into the ref's face upset with the play of #50. Granted he needs to be smarter about this stuff, if he feels the offensive line is taking liberties he has every right to stand up for himself the ref stood there in his little white hat and watched wilfork be tackled to the ground time and time again and kept his flag in his pocket. This one of my biggest problems with officials and the random nature in which they call holding, it's the refs job to maintain control of the game not just call touchdowns. This is one of the first things I was taught when I became a HS ref, if you don't maintain control the players will eventually take it into there own hands. I have seen this at HS games and I was one the sideline to observe college officials and seen the same stuff happen so it's not surprising to see it on the pro level.

    Love Vince's intensity, but he has to control it better and keep his finger out of players faces! It must be a favorite gesture of his, in getting his point across! Cost us too much yardage, which in any other game, but last night, could have given the game away!

    BTW, what was that moment when (I think it was Woods) our player stood over Palmer after he saw him on the ground? Was he taunting or just checking him out?

    Woods saw the INT and was covering Cutler for the return (that never happened). Obviously, I'm sure he was hoping he would get back up, so he could hit him again. No taunting, just defense.

    Speaking of Woods, he had a nice game last night. That's the best that I've seen from him this year.
