Is it normal to play one division team twice before playing another at all?

We've played the Jets, granted I can see why you forgot about that game.

She meant that the Pats will have played the Bills before playing Miami once

Polarizing. The Patriots D ranks 32nd with 42 pass plays of 20 or more yards, but they rank 1st with one run of 20 or more yards.

What do you guys think we do with Shiancoe? Just IR him, cut one of Fells/Hoozazajajaffooouui, or keep all five, with H-man as a fullback?

Well we have no idea how Shiancoe will actually do, but neither Fells nor Hoo-man have really shown much of anything.


I'm just excited to see Ballard with Gronk/Hernandez next season. Two top 5 TEs along with a top 10 TE.

Those three + Lloyd/Welker + Ridley = beastly running game with four quality receivers that can win individual matchups.

Ballard wasn't a top 10 TE before his microfracture surgery. Considering that type of injury has ruined many (but not all) careers, I wouldn't count on him jumping into the top 10.

Also, he's unsigned for next year (though he will be an EFA)

Yes he was.

We're talking about the same Jake Ballard right? The guy with 13 career starts? 38 career catches? 1 game over 75 yards? 0 games with more than 1 TD? A guy who is a decent but not especially impressive blocker? A guy who was out produced by more than 20 TE's in his one moderately successful season? All of these guys had more catches than Ballard in 2011:

Rob Gronkowski
Jimmy Graham
Brandon Pettigrew
Aaron Hernandez
Tony Gonzalez
Jason Witten
Kellen Winslow
Vernon Davis
Dustin Keller
Antonio Gates
Brent Celek
Jermaine Gresham
Jermichael Finley
Owen Daniels
Ed Dickson
Heath Miller
Jared Cook
Greg Olsen
Dennis Pitta
Marcedes Lewis
Scott Chandler

I'm sorry, but if you think he was a better TE in 2011 (not just based on receptions obviously, but his blocking is hardly superlative) than 13 guys on that list - well, I don't know what to tell you. You're wildly overrating a guy who showed some ability and seemed to be well rounded but isn't anything close to a top 10 TE. I wouldn't even have put him in the top 15 and honestly I'd struggle to call the 2011 Ballard demonstrably better last year than any of the guys on that list were.

IR him. Fells and Hoomanawanui have excelled as run-blockers at times.
