One of the toughest guys to ever don a Pats jersey.


Thanks for nine great years.

That was awesome.

"Every time I call it a game, you call it a business.  Every time I call it a business, you call it a game." LOL.

Thing is, its all true.

Best post of the year by you George.



BB's statement:

"Logan Mankins is everything we would ever want in a football player. It is hard to imagine a better player at his position, a tougher competitor or a person to represent our program. He is one of the all-time great Patriots and the best guard I ever coached. Logan brought a quiet but unmistakable presence and leadership that will be impossible to duplicate. Unfortunately, this is the time of year when difficult decisions have to be made - and this is one of the most difficult we will ever make - but like every other decision it was made for what we feel is in the best interests of the team."

At first, like most of Patriots Nation, I was shocked.  But we must move on.  Now I'm looking at the bright side.  This is great.  Now we have a tight end to replace the guy whose name I won't say who sits in prison, who can get open like a wide receiver just like the guy in prison could.  He's young, just the guy in prison, so we got that going for us.  We may have just replaced the talent that the guy in prison brought to the field with equal talent.  Tim Wright is the new A.H., just without the murders.  Nice job BB.



And, we get a fourth round pick next year too!  Sweet.



And, as an added extra bonus, when young Mr. Wright is catching TD passes from old man Brady, I won't have to look at two arms covered with ugly tatoos like I did when the guy in prison caught the ball.

Whenever a player is cut for money, not cap space, just folding dollars, I think of O W Shaddock.
Chickenshit cocksuckers indeed.

The money saved is earmarked for one Darrelle Revis.

The money saved won't cover half the signing bonus Revis will be looking for. Just get that out of your head. I know people are saying nicey-nice things up there, but there's zero chance Revis is a Patriot in 2015. I laugh when people talk about the team redoing his deal. They can't. Flat out, per the CBA can't touch it. It was designed that way. He's hitting the open market, he'll want absolute top dollar, and Foxborough ain't his hometown.
If they have any plans for it, besides buying something shiny for Krafts pretty niece Ricki, it's for Brady.
Or maybe they'll finally pay Hernandez the money they owe him. Who knows?

Never. 

Dreams do come true.

No, Alquippa, PA is his hometown.

Just like the guy in the Red Jacket whose number he wears.  Same number.  Same position.  Same hometown.

Maybe he'll be fitted for his own Red Jacket someday.

They both talked about it in an interesting joint interview.
