I love what Felger said about this, have Vince go up to him in the shower, put a forearm under his chin and say, "not here".


Lol no. Felger is an idiot, who are these clowns??

How about just say "If i to tell you anything, you've already failed" and treat him like a pro.


Okay, I don't think anyone is expecting Wilfork to do that the point is they just gotta keep him in line.

He's big strong kid, and I don't think he'll get in trouble here... but its not like he's a great cornerback right now, if anything he's pretty bad. I'm not sure he'll play to the level which a lot of people are expecting him atm.


If they guy can turn his head and deflect a pass just one time this season I'd be ecstatic and be happy with only spending a 4th on him. I'd like to see what that looks like for once this season.


Oh, he can turn his head and deflect many passes. The strongest aspects of his game are anticipating throws and playing the ball. He'll be a hit around here for that. Good fit for all the zone stuff BB likes to do.

He's not some kind of shutdown corner though. He gets beat off the line a lot for such a big guy.

Even though he is not a great corner, his skills is still better than any defensive backs that we have. At least Belichick made an attempt to fix the teams achilles heel.



He's pretty much a consensus top 10 CB the last few years, what's your definition of "great corner"?

I personally think he is a great corner skills wise but some Pats fans here don't think that. But if his off the field issues factor in with himself overall then no he is not a great corner.

Was little harsh on 4th-rd price for Talib, but when you consider how many picks (40) Patriots have used last 4 yrs, they can give up picks.

This is huuuuuge. If he can pick up the system which really shouldn't be that hard he will be fine. Some communication errors will come but he's probably the best corner we have.

Had my GF over the past few days so the interwebz has been off limits, just pop on today to see if Steve Smith or Steven Jackson have been traded and lo and behold, BB pulls out another rabbit.

Great trade, like Talib, has a great eye for the ball, just what we need. Hopefully with a bit of luck, health and keeping everyone on the straight and narrow, our Secondary can actually start producing as well (or close to) how the Front 7 has been.

I feel a lot more confident now following this trade, just gonna have to wheel and deal to grab some picks as we only have 4 in this draft now. Can't see us drafting in the 1st Round now.

Sounds like a plan. Though I'd like to see Lombardi's sources on this. Belichick is typically mum on his plans when it comes to personnel.

Chung and DMac at safety, Talib, Dennard and Cole at CB.

I can dig it.

Is this permanent or just for this season.

Also, this is bad news for Chung.
