    And the worst thing is that they cut him and put Izzo on IR for Chad Hanson and Amare Darboh. [Whoever convinced BB to put a waiver claim on Darboh should have been fined if not fired.]

    Maybe. But lose Burkhead. Hulksmash Bolden is an upgrade and he's more verstaile.

    IIRC he's also personally very close with Brady and they have an Edelman/Branch-type ESP mind-meld relationship on the field.

    Add in the fact that he is a prototype Belichick-type grinder and great lockerrom presence and you have one of those superb "Swiss-Army Knife" moves here by the Patriots.

    I love every angle of this addition.

    Didn’t hurt us in the end, thankfully.

    If anything it gave us a memorable, intense road game @ Arrowhead.

    Brandon didn't accept or understand what the wink from BB meant.

    I liked Darboh, but I don't know if anyone realized the medicals when they claimed him. I wanted him in the draft, and if he can stay healthy, I still think he has a shot to be productive.

    Why would anyone complain about this move? He's a terrific special teamer, and they needed improvement there. He's a decent 4th RB. Clearly loved by his teammates, he's a great locker room guy (by all accounts). A leader. A guy you can count on. The price will be minimal. What's not to like about this?

    It was even hard not to root for him last year when he curbed stomped us in Miami. He’s kind of like Rudy.

    Great to have Bolden back, should've never left. I wonder if they will be so cavalier trying to cut and resign him to dick around with the 53 cut like they were last year.

    So, does anyone think this could be the end of Burkhead or is Bolden simply to replace Patterson?

    We have 5 in our RB corp: Michel, White, Burkhead, Develin and Bolden.
