to get a C that is 320 plus and can pull like the Pats want, you need a first round draft chopice, as that size and feet is very rare. Wendell was a UDFA for a reason, and the Pats game plan around his strengths and weaknesses...which is why they dont run as much as you want them to...Wendell and Connolly are below average run blockers in tight space, but above average is pass blocking and pulling into open space. Wendell also gets over powered at the point of attack more so than most C's. (was very evident in camp, he was really pushed around in those drills)
If they drafted Pouncey, they would be a better power running team....
Pats dont see the value in paying a C money if they have TB to throw the ball 40 times.
Granted, Scar can make a prospect into a player..and everyone pats him on the back..but lets not kid ourselves, this is BB's offense and he is throwing fast, often and within 3-4 seconds on short timing routes due to his oline not having a power game
Oh Jesus. You are a troll deluxe. Have you seen how bad Pitt's offensive line has been in recent years? What about the Jets?
Meanwhile, BB loses a guy and someone else slides right in. I'll take our way, thanks very much.
You don't need a 1st rd pick to get a "320 lb Center" either. And, I don't know why ANY team would even want a Center that large either. You need brains and agility at Center.
It's unlikely someone as fat as "320 lbs" will be agile.
Nice try trying to use this opportunity to somehow spin the reason why we lost SB 46 or this past year's AFC title game is because BB didn't get Brady a "320 lb" Center for a "power running game".
Folks, look no further, than absolutel troll work here from RKrap.
"our way" is because of Brady and BB....BB dictating throwing the ball so quickly, and TB being able to execute it (much to your dismay)
why is that trolling? who mentioned the SB or AFCCCG? who mentioned any game?
you are one strange dude
Don't bother playing coy, either. You look for angles to take ridiculously outlandish points to take shots at BB. That's what you do.
The strange one is YOU, RKrap. You pay $50 to park 8 times a year+ in Foxborough whatever inflated ticket price depending on where your seats are, and you sit here and look ways to discredit what BB provides for the fans.
You're mentally insane.
Meanwhile, you either priase or downplay the Jets situation on the side with a whole host of people calling you out on it left and right. The Jets just dealt Revis and took a one dimensional 4-3 DT in his place. THey also drafted a smaller CB who is brittle (5 surgeries in the last few years).
In fact, JUST 2 weeks ago you said to Phat Rex about Idzik "it looks like he's doing it the right way". Really?
They just took Geno SMith in Rd 2 and couldn't find a trading partner to trade out from 13, on the heels of the Rams trading in front of them for their 1st choice, Tavon Austin. As long as Woody Johnson is behind the switch, they will NEVER do it the right way. Got it? Good.
So, by you saying "BB should have drafted Pouncey" it is another example of you playing irrational troll armchair GM.
You've done it all week long! You actually praised the Jets draft, where everyone else thinks it's not very good.
And, now you're in here talking about how we must have an oversized Center to run the ball well off a Ridley 1500 season.
I took the time to explain to you what they like (they like to use some zone blocking which takes athletes) and you totally discounted it because it's the right answer. You're annoyed that I had that right answer, so you scanned the Rolodexfor a deflection tactic and came up with that doozy. You got desperate and started talking "320 lbs" centers as an excuse why we can't "power run.
How about just commit to a run game? How about that? Then, it was a "BB blew it and didn't take Pouncey". Funny, Pouncey can't pass block all that well and Ben has been running for his life since Pouncey arrived.
You also lost a bet with me, clean, and act like you won the bet. You had 15 people coming onto your thread calling you out on it and you still act arrogant in defeat.
This is what you do here as a troll.
just about the entire NFL nation thought the Jets had a very good draft....
