In response to Uncle Rico's comment:
No. Does this surprise you? Were people on here calling this an epic signing when it happened? I'm sure there were some who did.
There was a reason he was not in the NFL. Did Bill not get the memo? Or was it stuck to the Hernandez draft notes that didn't get looked at.
It was a good signing honestly. Almost no cost and worth the risk, provided it didn't prevent them from wanting to get one early in the draft or signing a vet in FA. If it did then it's a face palm, as you said some on here thought he'd be like an extra 2nd round pick and contribute right out of the gate.
This offseason is really starting to leave a bad taste in my mouth and some of it is bad decisions while others is just bad luck.
- Washington for Woodhead just a bad decision
- Amendola for Welker another bad decision (2 good games out of 9 for almost the same price doesn't add up)
- A. Wilson seriously bad decision. Still wonder why so many jumped on me for seeing the obvious with him
- Kelly just bad luck
- Armstead is a bad decision if it affected their decision making regarding DT's for the rest of the offseason, bad luck otherwise
- Arrington.......... yeah that money could have been better spent
Looking at it was there any moves they made this offseason that actually worked out this year whether from bad luck, injury, or bad decision making? Oh Blount worked out pretty well and for what they paid for Edelman on PR alone worked out well but he was one guy I did want back and had people ask why after getting Amendola :p
PatsEng is one of the best posters, IMO. He presents exactly what a forum comment should present, for discussion. A clarified opening statement, 6 points of interest and a closing statement.
Just discuss the subject matter, if you have a dispute. PatsEng is not a troll nor a Bellichick basher. He is among many other solid posters whom discuss moves, positive/negative of our GM, That's all.
Armstead was just unfortunate, like he says. I'm fairly sure Jenkins was still on the draft board or another good DT. I Won't go into the Woodhead release. Woody played with Vareen last year, why not both? Too bad Talib has concerns, etc
Good Post PatsEng
PatsEng has been decidedly anti Pats front office for a while now. He tends to project things in the worst possible light. He also uses 20-20 hind sight like people can predict the future. Cases in point:
Washington for Woodhead is rediculous.
Amendola for Welker is also rediculous since Welker wasn't going to stay a Pat no matter how much money the Pats threw his way.
A Wilson a seriously bad decision? He cost the team nothing and probably taught the young guys a thing or three while here.
Kelly was good till he got injured, injuries happen and contrary to his belief, cannot be predicted. Actually using his logic, Mayo, Wilfork, Brady, Gronk and Vollmer were all bad decisions.
Need I say more?
