We should of used some of that cap space when we had a chance to really upgrade the defensive tackle position, instead we rode Vince like a taxi cab because we had nothing else. The guy limped out there to play last night (like he has been for the past four years) and this time he got carted off. Game over. There were 20 different defensive takles we could of signed the last three off seasons and we ended up signing Fenene, Shaun Ellis, and Albert Haynesworth. And to top it all off we drafted Ron Freaken Brace.
Thank God we signed the 33 year old Kelly (who was limping off the field last night too). I'm sure he is now realizing he is going to be our new taxi cab.
And if you want to talk salary cap space, value and smart decisions...how do you think our leverage will be trying to sign a decent defensive tackle right now? Not that there is any left. Our defensive rebuild project depended on Vince being there in the middle - the middle is where it starts and where it ends - this project has taken so long that the foundation wore away before the house went up.
Sure. Tommy Kelly was a terrible signing as was Gerard Warren. Just awful moves, Cupcake.
Is this all you have? We moved to a 4-3 to lessen some of the workload, too. Nice try, but you'll need to do better than to deflect. Your desperation here has been exposed. Note how TFB12 is chiming in, too. Means a sure loss for you on this topic if he is your ally.
Hey, have you shared with us your thoughts on Brady AGAIN almost costing us a game because he is too scared to take a snap on 4th down?
Is that BB's fault, too, Cupcake? Is it? Are you willing to go that far, go over the edge like a gutless weasel you usually are here?
We lose that game last night if Tom Brady is not our quarterback...plain and simple. You would rather have "Matty Ice" I'm sure. How would Matty Ice look throwing to the guys Brady was throwing to last night?
Only an idiot would think it is a good thing that we have 10 million in cap space as the center piece of our defense rides off in a cart. That is you. They could of spent 2/3rds of that on another guy that could of lessoned the load on Vince, instead he went out there knicked up, played every snap and finally gave out. There is not another 350 pounder in the league that has played as much football as him the last four years...he has been used, abused, worn down and now worn OUT. Congratulations to us for having free cap space (again), it would of come in handy when there were players out there to sign, now there isn't. It's a shame and it was a dumb move.
We don't have "10 million", moron.
Our run game set up Brady's play action, too. In previous years, Brady would be audibling into the shotgun and we'd lose.
We have had problem with our offense icing games in playoff games or SBs, and you sit there and defend his 2nd fumble in the last 3 weeks?
You are one sick, sick puppy.
BB's gameplan was brilliant. Did you ever think THAT is why Ryan looked off all night, dumbo?
White and Jones are the best duo in the NFL and you're on here pissing on the D's work, claiming Brady somehow was the reason we won?
Seek help and get it now, Cupcake.
PS, we have not played a base 3-4 defense since 2010. Wilfork was not "abused" at all. If anything, BB has gone to a 4-3 to take some pressure off of Vince. Leave it to you lie or miscontrue the facts looking to yet again blame the best coach and GM of all time.
I would hate to see your portfolio (if you have one). lmao
This is funny coming from the last guy on earth that realized we are playing in a 43, you spent an entire summer telling everyone that Belichick never played a 43 defense, remember that? Of course you don't, just like you don't remember saying Curtis Martin couldn't catch. LOL!
And yeah, Belichick converted to a 43 to save the wear and tear on Vince! Bawahahaha! Yeah it had nothing to do with drafting dope after dope, after dope, to play outside linebacker in a 34...remember Cunningham? How about Tully Banta Can't? How about Adalius Thomas? How about that third round bust from Michigan? How about Markel Carter? How about that undersized idiot from the Jets? How about that kid from Vancover? How about that jerk we traded a third to the Raiders for? But yeah, we switched to the 43 to save Vince as we trotted him out there 55 minutes a game because there was no other guy who deserved to be on a NFL field behind him. Brilliant.
