Recommended Posts

It all makes for lovely discussion-fodder, though, doesn't it?

In case you haven't heard by now, they're making a Patriots Super Bowl run movie. Even I think this is a bad idea.

 

Will Marky Mark be playing Tommy?

Poor browns.

 

Thanks for getting the ball rolling, Mangini.

In hindsight what I liked most about the Patriots victory - in particular, how it finished - was that they went for it from short yardage and goal-to-go much in the way the Seahawks did two years earlier, with a pass play; and, ironically, because they weren't throwing against the Patriots DEFENSE, they got another shot and immediately RAN it in, from short yardage...  Kind of funny, when you think about it.

 

In short, the moment - of the WHOLE game; not just 3 quarters - was too big for the Falcons.  And the Patriots rose to the occasion.

 

 

Also, I'm pumped for Vince Young to come back.  'Bout time ...

Too many trades to note them all, but there are some crazy ones, both in quality and economy. 

 

There's talk of Malcom Butler heading out shortly because of the CB trades. As a Patriots fan, it's Butler's legacy to be tarnished. It wouldn't bother me if Butler left. I expect it. It's the NFL; it's a free market system, and perceived value at times counts as much as true value. Butler is a good CB. Is he elite? No. He'll probably be a good CB somewhere else. But he is and only will ever be a player with legacy-based cache in New England. That's $$$ status. New England will always love him for 'the play,' but they'd enshrine him across the region, and by proxy the world really, if he was a 1-team player. 

 

But do you know whose departure really gets at me? Logan Ryan going to Tennessee. 

 

#1. Because fuck Tennessee.

 

#2. Logan Ryan is a DECENT player. The Patriots defense makes this guy a star at this position. Good job, Logan Ryan's agent for getting that deal, but fuck Logan Ryan if he thinks he's going to be half the player he is without the Patriots defense putting him in a good position to succeed.

 

This situation has Patrick Chung written all over it.

This free agency's really been a bummer in terms of action for the Chiefs. Yes i suppose the fact they resigned Berry doesn't help their cap space, but if you're going to let Charles, Foles, and Poe go at least make some sort of movement instead of waiting for the Draft to fill all those holes.

Go Vols *Rocky Top plays in the background*

 

Back on topic, If I were Butler or Ryan, I'd definitely stay in NE if NE was offering around the same amount as other teams. Bill Belichick is the GOAT defensive coach, isn't he? That means that Butler and/or Ryan would be guaranteed to play in a great defensive system for as long as Bill's there. But if the Pats lowballed Ryan, then more power to him for getting paid while he can.

Annnnnnnnnd Brandin Cooks is now a Patriot for a measly 1st rounder that BB was probably going to turn into a second and future 3rd in 2034 anyways. What a steal.

The Cooks trade is exciting. I'm just sorry for Danny Amendola that his time with the Pats is likely over with unless they roll back on expectations out of Gronk and wind up playing 1TE 3WR sets significantly more than they do now. Amendola has restructured his contract the past few years taking less money, outright saying that playing on a winning team means more to him than money. We'll see how far that goes. Honestly, all the FA moves have been exciting for the Patriots.

 

Jabaal Sheard leaving hurts a little, but Trey Flowers started to outplay him last year anyway. Chris Long leaving doesn't bother me much, and his DE trade replacement in Ealy is likely to produce at the same (or greater) capacity. Gilmore is an upgrade on Logan Ryan. 

 

If the Pats are able to sign Hightower and Butler, then what will already be talk about the Patriots heading back to the Super Bowl in 2017 is going to turn into shouts from the mountain top.

 

Either way, 2017 is shaping up to be a 2007-ish 'Go big or go home season' for TB12's 40th birthday. I'm not saying undefeated, but I am saying that it's going to be a fuck of a fun season to watch if you're a Patriots fan.

 

All this while you could argue the rest of the NFC East teams continue to degrade. It's almost as if they're all planning to build toward the day when Tom Brady retires, because that's how long it looks like they're going to need to come close to relevancy again.

So Foles is gone, Poe might be out as well... and what do us Chiefs fans have to show for it? retaining Daniel effing Sorensen. Definitely not the move i'd wanted. But then again, KC is too much of a small market like the Royals in MLB it's no surprise no big Free Agents ever come here except for J-Mac, but only because of Andy Reid.

Guys, I'm really sorry for all of your teams that the Patriots have won the offseason. Must be real tough on you all. :(:(:(

 

 

Signs Datone Jones, gets a new tackle to replace Matt Khalil, resigns Adam Thielen, brings back Terrance Newman, and gets rid of AD.

 

Other than not  resigning Cordarrelle Patterson, the Vikings have had a pretty decent offseason.

aka, "Choker's Day".  where people get super drunk to reminisce and mourn all the poor chokers and choking teams of modern times.  sorry to add this one, but 2007 New England Pats are among the honored on this therapeutic holiday.

Can't we make Jan 18th Pats 2007 choke day (1/18... or international format 18-1)?  Clever, I know.

 

....and keep 3-28 for Atlanta.

 

Sure, it's easier to joke about what should have been #4, when you eventually get #4 and #5 in spectacular fashion.

yes, January 18th is "A Day No Dolphins Would Die" - in honor of the 18-1 2k7 Pats loss in the Super Bowl.

 

and March 28 is Dirty Birds Matter day.
