  • Thanks for the insight. I grew up in Oklahoma, and was a big Sooners fan in the 1970s. Former Oklahoma players Horace Ivory, Raymond "Sugar Bear" Hamilton, Rod Shoate and Steve Zabel (and former Oklahoma coach Chuck Fairbanks) contributed to the success of some fine Patriots teams back then. In fact, that's how I became a Patriots fan - and remain one to this day (even through some...

  • I meant our most recent 2nd round receivers (Chad Jackson and Bethel). Of course, Branch worked out pretty well while he was a Pat.

  • My draft wishes (first 2 rounds): corner ILB strong safety I'd like to wait to get a receiver (higher % of 1st round busts than any other position - not that our 2nd round receivers have worked out). Sadly, I think we emerge from this offseason still having plenty of near-future defensive needs (who takes over for Asante?) 2007 schedule is a killer, too. Don Diamant wrote: As I...

  • Also, I really like Gostkowski's leg strength. If he wins the job, we probably can expect some strong kickoffs, which would be an improvement in field position over Adam. He was pretty accurate in his final college season, too (field goals: 22 of 25 overall and a perfect 10 of 10 over 40 yards; extra points: a perfect 35 of 35). Yahoo! Mail goes everywhere you do. Get it on...

  • When I said there were no running backs worth the Pats' 1st-round pick, I went by multiple publications that showed Maroney's weight at between 205 and 208 lbs. When I saw other media showing him at 217 (with the frame to hold 225 lbs per Mike Mayock of NFL Network), I was happy we picked him. I think we had an absolute haul on offense. Barring injuries, the offense should be very...

  • I'm very leery of smallish running backs, which is all of the running backs projected to go in the 1st round, except for LenDale White, and he's not worth the trouble (attitude, extra weight, etc.). The rest are 3rd-down backs, so I hope the Pats don't pick any of them. I'm hoping for a corner in the 1st round (Tye Hill or Richard Marshall?), with inside or outside linebacker in...

  • I know this is old news, but with their big salaries (Manning, etc.), how the HELL can the Colts fit Corey Simon under the salary cap? Something smells fishy in Indy. __________________________________________________ Do You Yahoo!? Tired of spam? Yahoo! Mail has the best spam protection around http://mail.yahoo.com

  • Just my opinion: Positives: 1. I think both Mankins and Kaczur will contribute significantly eventually (maybe next season). 2. I like the trades that got more picks next year. Negatives: 1. I don't like the Hobbs pick at all. I think you need to get starters in rounds 1 through 3 (maybe 1 through 4). He's only 5 feet 9 inches tall, so he's no starter, and his return and special...

  • Who do you think the Patriots should target in the first round? Putting aside the best player available approach for a moment, I'd prioritize inside linebacker, corner and safety, in no particular order. Of course, even before Bruschi's health issues, we needed at least 1 inside linebacker (we have none under 30 years old who are legitimately capable of starting, so maybe we need...
