We are straight loaded going into next season.
Or seam routes.
Anybody know the financials?
You know this is Jerod Mayo we're talking about, right?
He was a decent linebacker. He was NOT worth a top 10 pick. He's been made into this mythical Mike Singletary by some in the fanbase.
Mayo was an elite MLB and yes he was worth a top 10 pick and he performed an an All-Pro level. If it wasn't for him and VW they would have allowed 30ppg.
Was he at a Singletary,Urlacher or Kuechly level? Of course not.
"Elite" is ridiculous. "Elite on the Patriots" sure, but that was a pretty low bar.
That's Shea McClellin pictured
From 2009 to 2012 he was an elite MLB
And Belichick has the template when comparing Patrick Chung I vs. Patrick Chung II.
Although, even at the time, BB said the failure of PI was really that the coaching staff didn't put him in the right places to succeed. Seems that Collins' I's demise was caused by Collins himself putting him in the wrong places on the field. All in all, I really am struck how BB doesn't hold stuck to one point of view - - he is far more evolutionary than many other "more flexible seeming" head coaches.
I sense another 3rd rounder in 2021. Thank you in advance Collins
Just saw Collins leaving Logan heading for Foxboro.
You are right. Collins wore #91. But it's in large part to freaks like Collins that the NFL banned that move.
Here's one of Collins for the sake of accuracy.
Point is not the actual act of jumping over to block the FG since it is banned, it is a moot point.
The point is Jamie Collins had freakish athleticism in New England. Now if he can return at 90% of the athlete he was BUT play disciplined and 'do his job' he could easily turn into the next Patrick Chung success story on returning to New England.
WTF does that mean? He was more effective than any of them
104 tackles last year is nothing to sniff at, freelancing or not. If he has matured, our defense could be scary.
Collins was one of Hightower's best friends on the team.
High is happy:
As for Logan Ryan :
I just read some posters deriding Mayo as a lousy pick at 10 in the 2008 draft. Bill completely snookered the hopeless Jete into jumping up to get Vernot Goatston at 6...the NY Post and daily News ran HEADLINES about this tremendous coup the Jete pulled over on BB. YOU do the math...Lonely Walks By The Pond Goatston or Mayo? YOU are taking Goatston? Please stick to what you do now and stay away from pro football scouting.
Do we even know who this really is?
Earlier this hour on NBCSB both Tom Curran and Mike Holley said that Mayo was for sure involved in this move. Just reporting what they said.
