In Response to Re: Six Personnel Errors That Haunt the Patriots
[QUOTE] "Suppose you're a heart surgeon, whose lost his last three patients while performing a certain procedure. Are you going to feel confident performing that procedure on patient #4? " Texas Pat I'm gonna have a field day with this. If I am widely referred to as the most successful heart surgeon in the country then yes I am absolutely confident because lives are on the line and I am the best at what I do.. Great surgeons don't save every life they operate on, but if they had say a 14-5 success rate then I believe they would feel pretty confident. Great QB's don't win every playoff game, but if they had say a 14-5 success rate then I believe they would feel pretty confident. Feel the sting "big bull"? RESPONSE: Whatever you say, Joe...LOL!!!
Okay...Glass Joe...your turn: Here are my questions: 1.) Has Leigh Bodden has successfully replaced Asante Samuel?; Leigh Bodden doesn't have to replace Asante Samuel, he has to do a good job playing CB and the consensus of most sane men on earth is that he did that in 09 before missing the entire 10 season.RESPONSE: Still waiting for an answer to my question, Joe.
2.) Samuel has been select All-Pro twice, and made the pro-bowl in three straight years, during his tenure with the Eagles? Is this a question? Why does Leigh Bodden have to be a prowbowl stud or a failure? Why can't he be a "good" CB. At 22 million I would rather have him then 3xprowbowl blah bah blah 60 MILLION dollar Asanate Samuel. RESPONSE: Yes...it's a yes or no question, Joe. Once again, you've refused to answer directly.
3.) Other than Asomugha and Revis, please name five CBs who you think are better than Samuel? So because he is a top 5 cb this means that we should have caved into his demands and made him the highest paid cb in the league? Great defense's are not built in the secondary, they start with the defensive line. I wasn't smart enough to come up with that on my own. I heard a guy named Bill Belichick say it. RESPONSE: Again, you have failed to answer my question.
4.) Do you believe that Leigh Bodden is a pro-bowl caliber CB? I believe that Leigh Bodden is a good corner back who tackles well and is seldom caught out of position. This is what is important to the patriots, patriots fans and winning games, not whether or not he makes a pro bowl. RESPONSE: Again, you've refused to answer a direct question.
5.) Why do you think that it was necessary for the Pats to "package picks" to get Mark Ingram, when they could have simply taken him with their 28th overall pick? Going into the draft I wanted Ingram and still do personally. We could have taken a tackle, moved up to take Ingram(even though he fell) and perhaps got a 3rd pick in the 1st round by moving picks. I guess I wasn't smart enough to predict the course of the draft. Something you seem to think you are very good at.(when you have the almighty power of HINDSIGHT)RESPONSE: What??? We agree...you're not too smart, as once again, you've failed to answer my question.
6.) Aren't you being negative, and critical of BB, when you stated that the Patriots' should have taken Anthony Castonzo over Nate Solder? Why do you think that? Your the one trying to paint a picture of me as a koolaid drinking homer, how else could you win an argument of whether or not Tom Brady has lost confidence because you said so. I liked Costanzo because I am a BC fan. I knew what he brought. Didn't know much about Solder and thought we could have gotten him later. Unlike you I like what I have seen from Solder though. RESPONSE: What a croc!! So...you're a koolaid drinking BC fan too...who would rather see the Pats' take a lesser rated prospect, simply because he played at BC?? LOL!!! Furthermore, you again failed to give me a direct answer to my question.
7.) How do you think that the Patriots' OL played in the preseason, on a scale from 1-10? I honestly, and not just to back up MY point that our o-line is not a "major concern" (as you suggest) think that its PRESEASON and it doesn't really much matter. They looked great against the Bucs and Jags when we moved the ball at will and I didn't think much of it then either. RESPONSE: Hey Joe...when are you going to give me a straight answer??
8.) Finally...please point out which, if any, of the 6 bad BB personnel decisions that I listed to start this thread, do you agree with me on? As to the ones which you disagree on...please tell us why? I feel I've been answering this for the past 2 days. Anyway apparently your over the top thread title has worked because you have elicited a lengthy response and discussion. You mentor Dan Shaughnessy would be proud of you. RESPONSE: Again...you've refused to answer my question. By now, it's obvious to all why you have chosen to take this cowardly tact.

The following are your words, set out in bold black, Joe: Would you please elaborate on how you could tell Brady has lost confidence from the Jets game? I am dying to know what the criteria is for QBs who have lost confidence." Answer this and I will answer whatever question you think is pertinent to this conversation.
As requested, I answered your question on Brady. In failing to respond to my questions, you have shown yourself to be both a liar, and a coward.
Goodbye, Glass Joe.
