  1. Top 10 Patriots

    When healthy absolutely, but discounting for age/injuries I'd put him below Gilmore overall.

  3. OTA/Mini Camp Discussion Thread

  4. Continuing the series with perhaps the most controversial position the Patriots have been linked with... Quarterback I'll speak for myself here a bit, I'm starting to get a bit annoyed with Brady. Feels like after almost 20 years of buying in he's gotten tired of Belichick's ways, and he isn't really being that subtle about it. And while I have little doubt that he'll be able to move forward and play like he usually does once the season starts, he's got Gronk following his lead acting like a brat and who knows who else will join. Either way it's really not good for the team from where I stand, and there's no way in hell any of this stuff would fly with a Bruschi or Harrison in the locker room. And while I still think all things equal we'll see Tom play another 3-4 years, that's within the window for a rookie QB's first contract if we draft one this season, and for all we know we might need one even sooner. So with that: -- Early target: Josh Rosen, UCLA This draft class of QBs really scares me, there are 6 guys that could be 1st rounders, and 3 of them I wouldn't take before Day 3. I think Allen is a disaster mechanics wise, Jackson is about the most inconsistent passer I've seen that's still considered a potential 1st rounder, and Rudolph I see really struggling to adapt to the speed of the NFL game coming from OK State's simplified offense. The three remaining guys would all require a trade up, Darnold's 2017 season scares me off investing in him (I think he goes #1 regardless), Mayfield I think is the real deal but he's another guy I see going top 5. If one is going to drop to the range where the Pats would consider moving up, I think it's the best of the bunch, Josh Rosen. I'd be hesitant to give up both first rounders this year, given the need for young cost-controlled talent on defense, but if he reaches the 8, 9, 10 overall range I think you have to at least pick up the phone and try to figure something out. He's going to be a star. Player(s) to avoid: Luke Falk, Washington State In addition to the guys listed above, I think Falk is a QB that's easy to really like watching highlights, but looking at his games against the best competition in the Pac 12 last season he really didn't hold up well, held the ball way too long and looked like he was having trouble figuring out the defense. It's bad enough asking the guy to make the leap from Mike Leach's offense to the NFL, then you add that to concerns with his ability to get the ball downfield, I just don't see it. Not before the end of the draft at least, certainly not in Rounds 2 or 3. Late round sleeper: None Just not a deep class. You're gonna see a Kyle Lauletta off the board as high as Round 2, beyond that there's no one in this draft I'd be super excited about on Day 3. Mike White has some tools, but I don't know that he's ever a starter at the next level. I just don't think we're finding our next starting quarterback late in this draft, we might take someone but it'll be Hoyer competition not eventual Brady competition.

    Cannot wait for 8:30 tonight. The home magic is real, they've shown they can win comfortably even with LeBron balling out, but Game 7 to go to the Finals isn't something any of these guys have been through. Gonna be fun to see what this team is made of, I like our chances.
  6. Boston Sports Thread

    Agreed. They had so many opportunities to get that game close and just couldn't execute. Missed dunks, layups, open 3's, you name it. The foul on Morris when he hit that 3 was horrendous too, but the refs were bad throughout.
  7. Boston Sports Thread

    Can already tell the intensity is much higher for this game. Let's get it.
  8. Boston Sports Thread

    I hate the way the NBA schedules this crap. You're making me wait four days for the next game!?!? Terrible.
  9. Boston Sports Thread

    Do you guys do this hypothetical trade? I can't decide. I truly think the team as it is now is a legitimate championship contender in 1-2 years. But do you pass on the opportunity to get a top 10 player and perennial DPOY candidate in his prime?. The obvious risk with Leonard is whatever the hell this year was, but assuming they can figure out his quad and are happy with the medical is this a trade you do? I think if they can guarantee re-signing Smart I would ultimately do it. Considering Rozier is likely gone after next year if he isn't traded before then (no way he passes on a chance to start elsewhere even if we match the money), Morris is replaceable, and it still leaves us with 3 first rounders in 2019, including a likely top 5 ish pick from Sacramento. Assuming Anthony Davis is off limits for the next few years, and I certainly don't see Giannis going anywhere, I think Kawhi is the clear guy target this offseason and I could definitely see it happening. Tatum would be a dealbreaker for me tho, as much as losing Jaylen would hurt I think it's clear which of those two should be untouchable.

    6 point underdogs again tonight. What a joke. Cs in 4

    B's gotta have a win tonight, need Tuukka to show up bad
  13. Two more picks today, following this morning's trade with the Niners. I bet we see some sort of trade back from one of the 2nd round picks.
  14. Premature Roster Prediction (53- Man Roster)

    Yep, Reid or Vaccaro would fit the bill nicely.
  15. Premature Roster Prediction (53- Man Roster)

    Can't see them rolling with only 3 safeties with how many big nickel packages we run on defense. Which makes the lack of new faces at safety this offseason all the more frustrating! Also think one of Hill and Gillislee makes the roster, Belichick definitely likes to have at least one bruiser on the roster.

    Eff that game
  17. DRAFT DAY- Round 1 Discussion

    Didn't think he'd be on our radar with the fumbles but I don't hate it. Wonder how they plan on using him.
  18. DRAFT DAY- Round 1 Discussion

    Plenty of value here on both sides of the ball. My gut is saying Josh Jackson
  19. DRAFT DAY- Round 1 Discussion

    We're on the clock again!
  20. DRAFT DAY- Round 1 Discussion

    Man the rich get richer on that defensive line.
  21. DRAFT DAY- Round 1 Discussion

    Landry and Reid with our next two picks would be incredible.
  22. DRAFT DAY- Round 1 Discussion

    Wow that seems like a reach.
  23. DRAFT DAY- Round 1 Discussion

    Pretty good odds we trade out of 31 tbh.
