It might of been a different messageboard for Pats I think Patriots.com used to have a messageboard.You mean the same coach that’s been accused of cheating multiple times?
He took a massive beating from the media this season having his worst season since 2000.
It’s quite bizarre Bill wouldn’t extend him before the 2019 without any plan in place. It would’ve made more sense if Jimmy was on the roster. But, we’ve seen Bill do this many times before.
I think it was more like their relationship ran it’s course and it was time for both parties to move on.
That’s impossible as the site was created in 2000 so you would’ve been 17-18 years old. We are the same age so we were Seniors in High School back then.
So is Belichick’s. If Brady was using them it’s silly to think he wasn’t using them in NE and Bill didn’t know.Highly doubt Brady is doing steroids. If it ever comes out that he is... his legacy is done.

I don’t see what the upside is for Pats fans to even contemplate such a thing.
That was Angel Presinal not Alex Guerrero. Guerrero was not associated to MLB players as far as I know.I had a friend tell me about the Guerrero A Rod link.
If that is wrong I truly apologize.
I love Hightower's quote. Perfect combo of respect and competitiveness. I have to think the entire Pats D wants to see what they can do to Brady in a real game. And of course likewise for Brady.
I imagine its just another game to Brady, I mean he won the superbowl last year, he really does not have much to prove anymore. I doubt the players on the Patriots hate Brady near as much as some fans do, but they are going to play just like he is. Its not really bullitin board material.
I LOVE it. I would love to see like 10,000 fans in this T-shirt when TB comes to visit.
F*** yeah! I mean, that's what makes it really fun, the fact that, professional as they are, only one team can be better, only 1 guy can "win the matchup" on any given play, etc. Competitiveness. What would be great is if, I know it's a big if these days... if we came out of that game 4-0 & ascending into the "for real" category based on what we just did to the big bad TB Bucs.I love Hightower's quote.

Sir ...First of all, nothing Hightower said is all that crazy. Guys like High are extreme competitors. They HAVE to be, to last in the league for 10+ years, and a little extra in his case taking a year off and still wanting to come back and put your body through that again. Gronk gets that respect from me too. There were probably moments for both guys when they thought, "Man, it would just be easy to keep doing this forever now..." Donta wants to beat Tom Brady, like he wants to be everybody he plays, but I'm sure there's a little extra in there because it's someone he's known for his entire NFL career. Plus, you measure yourself against the best, and there's no bigger bragging right in the NFL right now than, "I beat Tom Brady."
Second, on Brady's "transformation", I don't think it's at all unreasonable or unexpected for a player in his 40's (which is unprecedented to begin with) to have different priorities and different goals than he had in his 20's. I'm roughly Brady's age, give or take a few, and I know that what was important to me 15 years ago is very different from what is important to me now. That doesn't make anything Brady said or did in his time in New England a lie, or disingenuous, or anything like that. When he was the perfect soldier under Belichick, it seemed genuinely important for him to do that. Then, after two decades in the league, he had his own opinions on how things should be done, and they clashed with the much older Belichick who had close to double Brady's lifetime to solidify his own methods. The two were at odds, and Brady did what was best for him and his family, which is what he should do.
There's no need to find villains in any of these story lines, other than to mitigate offseason boredom.
That is my priority too.I really hope this Pats team is ready to compete in this game. With all the hype and drama it would be nice if the game was competitive.
Early season Patriots teams often underachieve
BGC- I'd amend your statement to "some on this board who are either/or misinformed, uninformed or have a neurotic agenda" arent always kind about context. And they're a minority, although a very vocal one. Not to mention irritating.True but stupid since context is everything.
No this board is pissah for the most part. There are a few who are here who would F up a picnic though.BGC- I'd amend your statement to "some on this board who are either/or misinformed, uninformed or have a neurotic agenda" arent always kind about context.

I see it going just like the Chiefs game last year. Outmatched big time on paper but Pats still hang around for most of the game Brady forced into a mistake or two but Tampa still wins comfortably since we don't have the QB to answer.I really hope this Pats team is ready to compete in this game. With all the hype and drama it would be nice if the game was competitive.
