    I know, but he did have the signature f-up of the game and I felt like bringing it up.

    Imagine what we could have done with a decent wideout...

          Anthony Spencer. The guy is going to be a beast in a 3-4 defense.

                From what I've heard, he was released because he still doesn't know the playbook and he's had a bad attitude...

                    Spencer will be a 3-4 beast, but so will McDonald as a DE. However, we do not need a day 1 DL. Also, I would rather see us get another 3-4 OLB besides Spencer (preferably LaMarr Woodley)

                      Laurence Maroney (questionable, back) made a very interesting comment in the Patriots locker room on Friday, noting that, "I don’t have broken ribs, I don’t have a concussion and I don’t have a back problem."

                      You mean that the Patriots may be misleading us a bit? Or maybe Belichick got to Maroney and told him to deny it all? Many fantasy owners are hoping that the first-round pick can return for an advantageous match-up with the Texans, but there will be absolutely no telling how healthy he is until Sunday. Play him at your own risk

                          I took it a completely different way, as in, he's not hurt at all. I thought he was saying it in a condescending kind of way. But I guess that's what I get for putting emotion into written word, you can never tell that part based on how it is written...

                          The good news is Rodney may be back just in time for me to see him play next week in Jacksonville!! 8)

                            The Boston Herald reported Maroney has problems with rib cartilage.

                              Time to revisit some previous discussion given the events of this week: WR as a need.

                              Obviously, a lot of us were counting on Doug Gabriel to be much more than he ended up being... which was a lot of nothing and a waste of a fifth round pick. Chad Jackson, we all believe, will be a very, very good WR with time, at the very least, a dependable #2 guy. I may be willing to admit that I value Reche Caldwell a little less than I should, but I still don't want to see him as much more than a #3. Troy Brown is near the end. Jabar Gaffney is just a guy. WR is officially a very big need now. Maybe not as big as LB or DB, but at the same time, just as possible to be a bigger need (meaning it could go either way). It's safe to say that, while it's not a first round lock (because nothing ever is), it's going to be a toss-up as to what the bigger need is as far as LB/DB/WR.

                              Who are available in free agency at those positions. I know Lance Briggs, Cato June and Adelius Thomas are at the LB position, but I don't think any of those three are inside guys and that is our biggest need (though Junior Seau may come back). Deon Grant is out there at FS, may be worth a shot. There are some solid corners, but they are likely to get franchised. Shawn Springs may be a cap casualty. I really think what the Pats best move would be, is to find a way to move up and grab a Calvin Johnson or even Dwayne Jarret if they have to and address the defense via free agency. Let's face it, the offense simply isn't cutting it this year.

                              And I think they need to make a splash this year. They have been far too conservative, and have feasted off of playing extra games and all the extra Super Bowl revenue. They are in the top 3 as far as merchandising goes, it's time to do something. Who is out there for FA WR's? My opinion may be swayed if someone good and signable is out there. Of course, I wouldn't oppose to trading a pick for Randy Moss either. I wouldn't want it to be a first, because he can be a headache, but if it came down to it, then the lower of the firsts could go just to get a guy like that.

                              But Doug Gabriel not working out changes a lot of things in my opinion...

                                I like Nate Clements so they can save draft picks for other areas.

                                And I like Pau Williams.
