    That's probably only half true. He probably ran for 50 yards, but only 36 yards forward.

    • Maroney was incredibly gifted. Particularly at fumbling on the goal line in key situations.

      • Yeah, there's no way it's a bad hire. Great way to supplement O'Brien juggling two gigs.

        • Maybe Patriots fans should write an open letter to Eric Mangini begging him to come back and be the DC in NE...

          We might have a shot at a Super Bowl again before Brady dies.

          • I still think that bridge is burned, unfortunately. I would absolutely love that too though...but I just can't see that happening this century. He would be a better potential Belichick replacement than McDaniels though. I don't want him anywhere near our personnel decisions, except maybe with wide receivers.

            Also, on the subject of impossible ideas;

            1. Find a time machine
            2. Sign 2007 Randy Moss.
            3. **** **** up.

            • I think the bridge has been rebuilt with Mangini-Belichick. Really want to see him back in New England. He got hosed in his first two gigs. Never had a QB.

              His personnel decisions were actually pretty solid overall.

              • I'm posting this here since I don't want to be murdered by fans who picked in the top ten under McDaniel's watch(I wouldn't like the guy either if that were to happen)....but I really feel like most of his failings in other places had to do with bad personnel decisions and just a general lack of grounding. With the personnel we have on offense(and hopefully the additions we make to sure up the wide receivers) and Tom Brady, I think we'll be able to maintain the pace on offense into next year and perhaps even get better. Just a really, really solid hire for us and it should help both parties involved.

                I think the tight end factor is getting overblown a little bit. Gronkosaurus is the best tight end in the NFL(and coming off the best season a tight end has ever had), and we didn't have anyone even close to his ability threshold with us when McDaniel's made his first tour of duty. Ben Watson should have been better than he was, but I'll always remember him for proving that 4.4 speed at tight end doesn't make you Vernon Davis. Watson was actually fairly productive in 2006 as well, catching quite a few balls. Hernandez working underneath and in the middle after the catch seems to play well into his/our system as well.

                  The Ravens will try to bring the pressure, and that's when the Pats go to Hernandez and Woodhead out of the backfield.

                  On defense, the secondary will have to keep everything in front of them and Spikes and Ninko will have to have good games to stop the run - inside and outside respectively.

                  Prevent the big play, and I see the Pats winning pretty easily.
                  The Ravens need to chip Gronk and Hern I think which will hurt their pass rush. Ed Reed won't be able to help with Welker (my favorite to have a big day). Ocho might even get a few catches lol.

                  • I'm not diggin' Skip Bayless antagonizing T.Suggs.
                    Mocking him and telling him how the Pats are going to destroy him and his team.

                      Couldn't agree more. He needs to shut the **** up. Haha and people need to stop saying were a slam dunk to win this game, were not, like at all.

                      • It's mostly national people. I haven't heard that kind of stuff coming out of the local media here. This game is a complete toss-up.

                        • Yea, I couldn't agree more. This is going to be a slugfest.
                          It sucks that the Pats are doing their part. Being humble, saying only positive things about the Ravens
                          and then Skip comes in and ***** it all up for us. They don't need material for Harbaugh to post on their locker room to hype them up.

                          • Especially not when Suggs already has it out for Brady.

                              • Apparently Brady wasn't seen at practice today. Participation report out in a bit. Hopefully there isn't anything funny going on, but it's sort of strange.

                                Edit:

                                Brady thing is out. Left shoulder injury.

                                EDIT 2:

                                More concerning from an availability standpoint; Solder and Hernandez were limited with concussions.
