    Kraft Gets Off

    Is there something you want to tell us, fnord? :P

    OT: Tyrod Taylor punctured lung from painkiller injection

    No, that would be the flu bug that ran through the Patriots' locker room before the Indy game.

    Extend Newton

    My point is simply that, given his injury history and style of play, it's unreasonable to think that Newton is a true "QB of the future," a guy you expect to be the starter (barring Alex Smith-type injuries) 5-10 years from now.

    Extend Newton

    The problem is that you don't generally make it to 40 as a "dual-threat" QB. (Brady barely made TB1K. Peyton Manning didn't, and Drew Brees probably won't make it there either.) Few of them make it to 35.

    September 27 Weekend TV Coverage

    I don't know if it's just enormous representation by the fans of those teams, but . . . they get ratings. To wit: the 2007 Patriots–Ravens game gave ESPN the largest audience in cable history. That record was broken the next season by the first Eagles-Cowboys game.

    I think we can say Edelman does not have to have Brady

    Reminder: Wes Welker went from 112 catches with Brady in 2007 down to just 111 in 2008 with Cassel. If you're a QB who can't benefit from a Welker/Edelman/Amendola/Troy Brown, either your OC sucks or you do.

    Gronk... Disturbing on so many levels!

    Hey, he doesn't want to touch his salary, so he's gotta pay the bills somehow. . . .

    Wouldn't mind a trade for Jack Doyle

    I wish they had a better TE to mentor them, but, yeah, I have high hopes for those two.

    Semi-OT: What is the most unwatchable type of football game?

    Good to know I'm not the only one who felt that way. (Not sure if that's just how it felt vs. them actually doing worse on 3rd and long than 3rd and short.)

    Is he required to take it?

    Semi-OT: What is the most unwatchable type of football game?

    Set aside the question of which teams are playing. What sort of game makes you think "Yuck, this isn't worth watching?"

    Official Post Game Thread- Pats beat the Dolphins!!!!

    It's actually the second dumbest rule in sports, IMO. The dumbest is the one that says you can intentionally step out of bounds, touch a kickoff ball that's still in the field of play, and that's a penalty for the kicking team.

    Official Post Game Thread- Pats beat the Dolphins!!!!

    This might also be a consequence of not having a preseason. As an example, Winovich played 50 snaps Week 1 last year. And they had to throw Julian Edelman into the fire in his first game (basically, "Hey, Julian. We're going to need you to go out there and just . . . be a Wes Welker clone.").

    35 million in cap space, are there NO quality WRs or TEs available?

    The best analogy we have here is Matt Cassel in 2008. I'm going to exclude Game 1, since he took over midgame, and Game 16, because gale force winds. Games 2 through 8 he averaged about 30 passes per game (with just 23 in Week 2). Games 9 through 15, he averaged 40 passes per game. I expect we...

    It is the "55-man loophole," but AFAIK they haven't signed anyone to the "full-time" 53 to replace Cajuste or Olszewski, so they're sitting at 53 (i.e., 51 + 2) ATM.
