In Response to Re: Bye, Bye Bennie
[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Bye, Bye Bennie : once again, zbellino is 100% correct. BJGE was a great value for year for what he did. Consistently get those 3 to 5 yards, and never fumble. He followed the Pats blockers and got what they gave him, consistently, but never created yards himself. Never made the Pats running game a real threat. If we could get him back at a similar amount to what he got last year, he's worth it. If he gets much more then we should let him go and find someone to replace him. It really won't be that hard.

No, he's not...and for some strange reason, zbellino's formerly 100% deeply informed, uber rational and always realistic in terms of practicality and potential simplicity Overall Takes on matters, has been shunned by him for the last 2 or 3 months for the first time ever in his posting tenure...
How does one leap with ease from the conclusion that: BJGE is not a #1 Runningback threat- DIRECTLY to the conclusion that, thus: NE really doesn't need him, Because replacing him will be a piece of cake...?
There was NO reason why extending BJGE at what would have been A BEYOND reasonable offer during & in the midst of this past, Was Not Done... N-O-N-E. And don't tell me that they tried without offering up credibly sourced references.
Likewise, Upon NE's Runningback corp being solidified, Just Once- One Time since what was offered by the spot for 1 half of that 1 first season with the Maroney and Dillon tandem (what was that, 2005-2006, or 2006-2007...I actually and sicerely forget, b/c the subsequent drought up until this very season, Was THAT long)... So then, How on Earth does 1 actually conclude, "NE can easily replace BJGE, and throw ANY-one in really, whom WILL offer the same amount of immediate successs for Game 1 of 2013, without'a hitch," IF We can ALL surmize that even by consertaive estimates here, NE had A FULL half decade drought (or half decade +) at the very same spot that they had failed to solidify as a serious and successfully exploited flaw at this spot, For THAT long formerly?!?!?
Did NE WANT to be that lacking...for that long?!? I don't they purposefully sought out to, ya know? The cheap FA vets they kept throwing in during this period, ALL failed miserably...so, just right now this 1 offseason, every thing'll be different if we do the same...bank on it, because "BJGE is easily replaced, without issue?" How does 1 conclude this?
How does 1 have no issues just allowing BJGE to walk, because they're SO totally and completely certain that, "IF The Draft's very best Runningback doesn't simply slip down the draft in order to fall right on our laps at Selection #27, Then undoubtedly We'll just scoop Ray Rice right up (maybe NE can trade a 7th Round Draft pick in 2014 for Rice, which his team we'll certainly just jump at)?"
Make no mistake...IF one were to pick ANY single position on the football field, and ask which one makes for Both the quickest and Easiest transition from college to the pro ranks, The Spot of Runningback would be right there along the top part of this list...no doubt (btw, someone actually forwarded the belief on here recently that RB was the hardest position to transitionally learn, while both WR and CB were the easiest, lol <had ta add that />). YET, saying this again, And then A-gain just jumpin' to the conclusion that The Specific RB NE DOES get (theoretically) will both by a success himself, and a success in NE...bare minimum offering the very same success of BJGE without fail, IS- well...not very good rationale (I'm learning to temper my words a bit).
Starting the season with the following guys Is NOT, The best option in terms of keeping the large void from The NE RB position: Extremely promising big back Ridley currently with very worrisome ball security issues (esp. in light of # of carries), and Vareen whom- Didn't Vareen get injured 2-3 seperate times last year at least (go back on the injury list, it was either Vareen or Dowling who's injuries were ever changing, and ever present...maybe it was just both players), and finally 4 foot tall concussion-beacon Danny Woodhead...~~~
fyi, Please don't respond to my post without ALSO bringing up the facts I offered up in my post on the "Benny to The Chiefs" thread a day or two prior, alright? IF ya wanna counter my take here, counter ALL the facts I presented, not just piecemeal through 1 or 2 of them, before finally concluding one's counter argument on this subject is sufficient and complete...
