Amondola took a big pay cut from 12 mil. Over 2 years to 7.4 over 2 years. Good for the Patriots. That is a big cut.............he could have moved to warmer climate, must be a love fest with Tawmmy Bwady.

Lynch was never the best RB in the league, he got a lot of hype for the powerful way he runs and his not talking to the media worked in his favor with his popularity.

The great thing I remember about TD was how often he would make the cut for the hole before the hole was there. Like Gretzky once said, he didn't go to where the puck was, he went to where it was going to be. So few players get to that level. Even the best runners today wait for the hole to open. TD knew where the hole was going to be and when it opened, he was already through it. That's what they mean when they say "vision." TD had it.

I remember a TD promo before the 97 season where the article read: Give him an inch and he will give you 10 yards.

So true. Everyone should go back and watch a game or two with TD in the backfield. Beautiful to watch.

So when he gets inducted and TD STILL isn't in, do we burn down the city of Canton or go all William Wallace on the HOF voters or both?

Why endzone tickets were so awesome back in those days. You really saw his vision happen in front of your eyes.

Yeah, I recall that in almost every big game you just knew that at some point in the 2nd half a big run was coming that would demoralize the opponent. It was a matter of when, not if.

I remember sitting in the north EZ seats in a game against San Diego. The Broncos had the ball at about the 20. It looked like some kind of pitch to TD around what was the Broncos left. It looked as is the entire Chargers line had converged on the play, just a wall of defense, and you could feel everybody kind of sigh and sit down. Then you see TD pop right through the mess on the sideline, make a couple of jukes, and he's coming right at us for the TD... stops in the EZ and salutes us. Craziness ensues!

Never forget that moment.

I went to the 98 game at Seattle. I think the chickens had us held back to a 3rd and 10 near the end end of the game. TD busts through and just wiped out any hope of a comeback.

Bob Quinn has made his first trade as the Detroit Lions' general manager, and it involves the team he came from.

The Lions acquired linebacker Jonathan Bostic from the New England Patriots on Monday for a conditional seventh-round choice in 2017.

There has never been a coach and more specifically a gm that has left New England and har success(obrien is the closest). I think they are all part of a Masonic like cult led by belicheat and Ernie Adams and they just try to make foolish trades to help the pats and destroy their current teams.

And patience if the hole didn't magically appear it often would somewhere else and he had the patience for it. It's one thing I noticed with Booker, he has patience.

He was probably so afraid of Gibbs yelling at him if he didn't trust the OL blocks.

I remember going to my 1st game in Denver in 95 vs the Cards and it was Dive, Dive Dive and by the half he had 90 yards. Positive yards every touch. That is why I hate backfield dancers so much.

Melvin Gordon - RB - Chargers
The San Diego Union-Tribune reports Melvin Gordon underwent microfracture surgery in January.
We knew Gordon went under the knife in January, but the specifics of the operation were not reported. Microfracture surgery carries an ominous history, but several players in recent years including Travis Kelce and Vontaze Burfict have come back from the operation as good as new. The Union-Tribune reports there does not seem to be much concern in the building about Gordon's short- or long-term health, and Gordon participated in on-field drills Monday, saying there is "no question" he will be ready for training camp. Gordon's recovery will be important to watch, but there does not appear to be much cause for concern right now.

pretty sure that's what been keeping Jadevon Clowney on the sidelines too. Bust.

The issue with most of the other GM's and coaches is that they attempted to run their teams in exactly the same manner that Belicheck runs the Pats.

That's not going to work. They didn't know any other way to do it and they failed because they could not match his success.
Another issue is that neither of them had a QB worth a damn.
Stafford is the best QB a Patriots off-spring has had, McDaniels would have had Cutler but he wanted Cassell instead.

It will be very interesting to see how Quinn does things in Detroit.
He probably landed 5-6 immediate starts in this years draft(Decker, Glasgow, Killebrew, Williams and Robinson with Dahl potentially getting in the mix)
The roster is devoid of talent with so many bust coming during Mayhew's regime.

Not having even a decent QB much less Brady has been the issue but I think Bill O'Brien will be the most successful Belichick disciple. Oz is easily the best QB prospect any of the former Pats coaches have had to work with.
