    If only he could have blocked that pro bowl DE while playing with a torn ACL, we would have hoisted the Lombardi.

    How do we know that Mankins coming is the curse and not those who left the Patriots after the 2004 season:)?

    Never mind the curse of Mankins, let's talk about the curse of this house: 0702Menkins_Home.jpg

    This house belonged to Logan Mankins.

    Before that, it belonged to Richard Seymour.

    Let's hope nobody signs a big contract and then moves into that house. :eek:

    Mankins would've let Bennett take off Bradys head tonight. Thank god he's gone.

    Told you guys way back in September!

    The Patriots overcame a bad trade. Good for them. Let's not get silly about it. Bennett was probably the MVP of that game for the first three quarters.

    I'll leave it at that for all the crazies to pretend it's not true.

    Yes he was, as trade bait. ;) We all know he was a great player, we were just miffed he sucked in those two SBs. And stop now.. We don't care about the other 213 games. In a world of rainbows and easy decisions he'd still be here. He was a good player for NE.

    Although the Pats obviously didn't miss Mankins this year (unless people think they would have won the Super Duper Bowl last night with him), to say he cursed this team while he was here is silly. He was a great player who turned into an average player and his value became less than his contract. Belichick used his "better to get rid of him a year too early than a year too late" and it was the right move.

    The only impact Mankins had on the Super Bowl last night was how the people who replaced him in the trade or with his cap money, helped the Pats get to and win the Super Bowl. The curse is ridiculous.

    Post hoc ergo propter hoc fallacy regarding Mankins

    Now that Mankins is gone, we are repeating our original Dynasty that we had without him. 3 Superbowls in 4 years!

    Look at the date of OP.


    To further add to the Mankins curse, the draft pick we got for him was used on Trey Flowers. The player with 2.5 sacks in the Super Bowl including the game changing sack that sent the Falcons backwards out of field goal position, and a combined sack after our failed on-side kick attempt.

    Don't get me wrong, but Logan Mankins was one of my favourites of all Time. He was nasty and played always a sec after the whistle. Talk about others NOT Logan . Thx

    It's pretty crazy, but all it leads me to do is feel bad for Logan. The guy deserves to get a ring, and he had to watch all of them happen while he was not on the team.
