    He was a much bigger loss than people seem to acknowledge. In addition, I believe had Brady not hurt his ankle in the AFCCG, he'd been able to maneuver enough in the pocket to get passes off or not take sacks.

    Sammy Morris was also a huge loss.

    I remember the draft experts and media were high on Beason going to NE. I was never crazy about the stomper. I thought Mayo was taken too high in '08.

    I’ll never forget that 3 game stretch in 02 where we played in sequence

    KC Priest Holmes
    San Diego Tomlinson
    Miami Ricky Williams

    Got gashed to all hell in those 3 games.
    2002 had to of been the worst rushing defense I’ve ever seen. Just about the bottom in every statistical category.

    Chiefs were the first to completely expose their defense and the Chargers ran the same run plays with a WR faking a reverse after the handoff.

    That back breaking home loss to the Jets in week 16 where Martin was gashing them on the ground and Chad Pennington dropping bombs to Laveranues Coles was tough to watch.
