It's over folks.
Dude is like a combination of Jeff Bezos, an evil priest from a horror movie, and Matt Millen.
However, Brady's presence, plus a normal off-season would make us strong favorites to be in the playoffs.
If Bill has to handle all these losses, Scar and TB? What a road ahead... Next season has the propensity to be quite possibly the most interesting and uncertain season I've had the pleasure of watching in my time as a Patriots fan.
Where is Sanu in this theoretical scenario???
The OL line had plenty of non-scar reasons why it had issues. Losing David Andrews was a huge blow to this offense. So was losing Isaiah Wynn for the first half of the year.
If anything, I'll give Scar a ton of credit for coaching Karras up. He went from a green and little shaky at center to a solid-average C by the end of the year.
Still no match for what we lost, but Karras went from an emergency backup with little experience at C to at least being a definite non-liability out there.
The fact that people stopped noticing the offensive line, with all the personnel changes we had to deal with, is a feather in Scarnecchia's cap.
This is perfect thread symmetry... Deus calls out the homers, and then Deus becomes the homer.
Take the Homer plunge, Deus... the water’s fine.
I was being silly, of course. Easterby can burn.
Highly doubtful that his wife had to write her wishes for his return to retirement on a wall -- she probably just whispered in his ear. The man turns 72 next month after all.
I'm not a huge stays guy but an outlier is an outlier.
Edit: From your link.
Per Football Outsiders Pat's had the 5th ranked passing OL last season. Run OL was a respectable 9th.
...and Bill is 68 very soon. Which further suggests we should be re-signing Brady and trying to squeeze out one or two last runs at it even if we’re not the absolute favorite.
I feel like folks talk like Bill is easily going to coach for another decade, and it’s just not the case. I’ll reassert that we should be in a “win now” mode. I’m not saying do anything crazy... but we can’t be tossing 3rd round picks at red shirt RBs anymore.
I knew Dante would be gone sooner than later...I was in denial that it could come this soon. Congrats to him on a HoF career. Make this man a statue, Mr. Kraft.
BB will be gone relatively soon, he's hanging on to ensure his sons' careers are established. I'm not sure I agree with those who believe he's after Shula's win record, but it's possible. As for "win now mode" in the way you're thinking of it, sometimes that's just not in the cards. That route with Brady likely is over.
Bill should've pounced on Marc Columbo before he signed with the Vagiants.
I’ve said this before, but let’s say the Chiefs win on Sunday. That would mean we basically have 3 wins in a row vs the current SB champ. Yeah, I’m claiming a W due to that ridiculous officiating.
Despite all the struggles this year, we were still right there. I believe Brady still has gas left. I believe in Bill’s coaching. I believe Bill the GM is capable of a good draft. We weren’t that far away even with a whole heckuva lot that went wrong (injuries).
I appreciate your optimism.
I get why many folks are dubious of our chances. This news on Scar is very concerning.
One wonders if the decision has been made to move on a QB?
Rip off the band aid and rebuild the O.
They didn't paint it as a good thing the first time around. Why would they start now?
Pretty sure that a guy with TWO whole posts since he joined last year isn't a homer.. But then, assumptions are your forte, Deus.
