    • Alex "QB" Smith would actually be a great fit in the Patriots' offense. People underrate him and give him way too much undeserved guff. The problems he's had in SF go directly to Mike Nolan, who no one thinks well of as a head coach... If Nolan and the talent-getters have been well-established as sucking, why do so many people take such a hard stance against Alex Smith? It's stupid. The kid can play, and is still younger than most of the QB's in the NFL. They've got a quality leader at HC, some weapons on offense, and a lot more stability... I really don't see Shaun Hill holding Smith from starting in 2009.

        I don't want to do a big breakdown in your guys' forum, so I'll just say that Alex Smith (the crappy QB) has, BY FAR, the worst footwork of any "pro" QB I've ever seen. It's not even close. If you wish to debate the merits of such a terrible QB, let's do it over in the SF forum.
        The Brian Sabean sig is no more. I disagreed with you on so many levels. And then you went out and built a dynasty. I am lame.

          The thing is that pretty much anyone can fit in somewhere on the Patriots. Alex Smith has no qualities that would make him better than, say, Rex Grossman in New England (who I would actually like to see here.) Kyle Boller would have been nice, he's always played well against the Patriots and he has a big arm as well.

              I would love that pickup; Foote is a great fit for us and would be nice to have next to Mayo along with Bruschi, Guyton, and McKenzie. That would give us a pretty solid ILB corps, with Eric Alexander being a special teams ace essentially.

              I am pretty sure he is openly said he wants to finish his career in Detroit, though.

              • He said he wants to go to Detroit but will entertain other offers. His first priority seems to be the starting, full time role that he lost in Pitt. His mention of Detroit was from a Detroit paper, so it may be a simple "Do you want to play in Detroit" question that he answered. But I'm not sure if he said it elsewhere, too.

                "Foote, a Michigan native, told the Detroit Free Press that he'd like to play for the Lions, but will enterain any offers."
                article link

                I'd be happy with him going to Detroit, to be honest. Same as Brace for NE, Foote is a Detroit kid and Michigan guy so he'd be a hometown favorite. Plus Detroit could really use the help.

                But I'd rather see him in NE.

                  • Not a bad deal. Should make the team and be good for depth. Probably means we're not seeing Rodney Harrison again.

                    • Yeah, makes you wonder about Tank too. Nice to see us add another local kid though.

                      • McGowan is more of a free safety. Nice to have capable backups behind Merriweather and Chung.

                          I know, I'm just thinking if were simply trying to get deeper at the position because Tank may be done. I'd love to see Tank playing as a nickle LB for us next fall.

                          • Larry Foote signed a 1 year deal with Detroit.

                              I'm sort of leaning towards Tank being done. He hasn't played football at a high level in almost four years now. If you're depth chart breakdown holds true, I think Tank will get cut in favor of keeping Redd, especially with this move.

                              • Before the draft I was telling someone (in a mock thread, iirc) that I did not expect Tank to make the roster. He really was at the end before getting injured, so expecting him to come back to a useful form is overly optimistic.


                                Foote to Detroit is a bummer. Hopefully he does well there since he inked a one year deal.
