yeah loving the first four games. we should be OK without browner.

do you guys know if he's allowed to play preseason games at all? wondering because it'd be nice to have him in at least a little bit of game shape.

A NE REVIS jersey would look so good!  Provided he can still play at that level.

 

I am kinda shocked at the RB position.   Ever since Ridley got head shocked that one year where he literally dropped the football, he has turned into a fumbling machine.

 

Seems like BB likes using these types of players a few years then let them go like Ben Jarvis, Blount.  Correct me if I'm wrong but Ben Jarvis had that longest NON FUMBLING streak or something right, which was why BB liked him.

Anyways, quickest blown whistle to end a quarter after I saw a flag get thrown on the field I've ever seen or, more than likely , ever will see in my entire life.

Simply outstanding.....

my take on our draft:

round 1:
easley, DT: pretty obvious here. high risk, high reward. if he's healthy, A+ pick. if not, crippling miss in a draft loaded with talent. watching this dude on film is ridiculous. he gets off the line so quick and is in the opposing player's face almost immediately. he's getting into the backfield and jacking up plays consistently. he might not always make the tackle, but he's disrupting plays left and right by getting right into the backfield.

round 2:
garappolo, QB: is this the guy? he's definitely the most aggressive attempt the FO has made to answer the "who will take over for tom" question. the pick definitely surprised me. i think he's coming in to a perfect spot. most say he isn't ready to play, which is fine for us. he's going to learn our offense and how to be a professional from the best possible QB to learn from. skill wise, he has what it takes to be successful. if he can develop his current skills similar to how brady did, could be promising. quick and smooth release, with the ability get on the move and buy time for receivers to get open. from what i've read and briefly seen, looks like he can make most of throws he needs to.

round 3:
none

round 4:
stork, C: strong, smart, and versatile guy that can IMMEDIATELY pressure wendell and connolly for playing time. i like this pick a lot. we need OL help, and having a guy that can bounce around a bit with our injury plagued line is valuable.
james white, RB: i wasn't wild about picking a RB in this draft. the big thing with this guy seems to be ball security. he doesn't fumble the ball. definitely some insurance if ridley can't fix it. he should complement our current stall of RBs nicely. he's a smaller guy but sounds like one that can find holes and cut through tacklers effectively.
cameron fleming, T: like this pick as well. while he's not going to challenge any starter for time right away, he's a backup right away. smart kid.

round 5:
none

round 6:
halapio, G: another guy to help give us some depth on the line. better run blocker than a pass blocker. hearing that the concern with him is staying healthy. hopefully he can be a reliable backup for us this year.
moore, DE: don't know anything about this guy other than he's got great size for an end and is basically out there to get to the QB. much needed for us. don't expect much from this year though.
thomas, CB: another guy i don't know anything on. SMALL corner. 5'9" and change. don't like the pick. not with some of the other guys on the board at that point in the draft.

round 7:
gallon, WR: this is my dude. loved this kid at michigan. slot man written all over him. if he can get on the same page with TB12, going to be a great addition. he's quick and tough. he'll do the dirty work in the middle. big fan of this pick, especially this late. it will put pressure on boyce and thompkins as well, unless the team plans to do something with amendola.


overall i think it was a pretty good draft for us. we didn't get the big pass catching stud that a lot of us were hoping for. we did however get a guy who could be the next great DL for this team. we hopefully picked up a guy that can take over for TB12. and we bolstered our offensive line with some good big boys. will be interesting to see how gallon and white contribute, if at all. but not bad additions. we signed a couple undrafted TEs immediately after the draft was over, one of them being 6'7"...so we'll see if that works out at all. my hopes are a bit tempered after the jake sudfeld debaucle last year.

Eh. Gronk is brittle and might start off the season on PUP list, Jones is an undrafted rookie we're taking a flyer on, KT's snaps decreased each game and he's gonna be fighting for a roster spot, Dobson has a foot issue and was up & down as a rookie.

 

So basically the only proven commodity we have who can be consistently relied upon is Julian Edelman...and he's a midget. :lol

 

I'm glad Belichick FINALLY focused on grabbing better/bigger DB's this offseason (wondering what they'll do at SS though...) and I like what he's done on the D line...but **** man, Brady is surrounded by question marks as receivers and his window is closing. ******* go ALL the way out.

 

It's good they'll be counting on the offense to do less with the increased attention on D. But they could absolutely use someone who can stretch the field and open up the middle though. Year after year we see opposing teams pack it in and dare the Pats to beat them deep. Brady couldn't hit those passes last season and they don't really have that guy right now.

 

I guess we gotta count on the young dudes to make that leap...

Dobson and Thompkins MUST take that big step forward. i would think at least one of them should be able to. Amendola hopefully can get his act together and get on the same page as Brady.

Gronk starting the year on PUP? Is that true? I thought I heard his rehab was going well? maybe not.

There were unconfirmed reports out there that he was gonna take his sweet *** time coming back. I wouldn't blame him after the fiasco with the elbow.
