Givens was good for the Pats, as a possession guy, especially in the playoffs (see consecutive game w/TD record). When he went to TENN, I believe he caught 8 passes for 104 yards in the first 5 games (slow start) after signing a 24M contract and never returned after a ACL right after that.
On the Harris TD run, he broke a tackle in the secondary.....Sony never breaks that tackle. Sony has very few long runs. He had two nice runs against the Raiders but otherwise nothing over 30 yards in almost 500 attempts.
This is interesting. Is this your judgement based on looking at the 3 cone metric for all the Pats draft picks versus comparable picks, or is it written somewhere? Just wondering. I know it has been written that Pats love wonderlick more than anyone and look for married players as well.
That's all fine. Probably true (don't think the Steelers would agree but ok). Then why did he draft Harry then? He must have seen something with Harry that persuaded him to shove this principle aside in round 1 last year.
Meyers is a really interesting piece for Bill to work on for the next 2-3 years. I think he is going to be one of the better UDFAs Bill has picked up when it is all said and done. He would have been drafted but was was slow on the 40. But the 40 is overrated see: Chad Jackson and Bethel Johnson.
He was designated to return on Oct 15. Bill has 21 days to activate him. Until that happens he doesn't count against the 53. He also could simply not be activated, at which point the Pats basically wasted a 1 of 2 of their designations. That is what the blue check marks on twitter say.
Sanu has missed like 2 games in 7 yrs. Gordon between substance abuse/mental health and football injuries has play like 10 games over the span of 5 yrs before coming to NE and hasn't had a good season since 2013.
He is not the same player. Sanu isn't great but is a good fit for this offense...

Edelman concussion catch on 3rd and 10+ to keep in the Sea SB
Absolutely amazing that after 2017 draft of Garcia Rivers Wise and McDermott the team made it to 2 super bowls .
You would think in a strong class you have 2 starters and 2-3 contributors grinding it out in special teams and in key reserve roles. In this case Beli got about 25 snaps a game out...
Will be interesting to see the contract. Foles is a starter but not that many teams need a veteran starter. So he needs Jax more than Jax needs him almost. Other than the Skins, who else could use a 25mm vet QB (i.e. ready to win now) as opposed to going into top tier of the draft?
I get why lots of people don't want to talk about it anymore. Fine. But I don't get why they come into the thread and critique people who are out of their mind after 13 days of analysis on this year's game but want to chat about tangential issues just to pass the time.
Realistically 8-16 people probably know what happened:
Defensive Backs Coach (BB's kid?)
Kraft - have to assume BB answered to his boss
An unknown person who Butler did something to
4-5 Secondary members (have to assume Butler told them if they didn't witness it...
