    Oh - my mistake then. And it's reasonable to criticize Belichick for some of his drafting mistakes - he misses on his WR and CB picks with regularity. I wish he could find WR talent like the...

    Here's an article that provides analysis on how D'onta Hightower has been playing so far this year.

    He's stepped up his game since Jerod Mayo went on IR.

    You're right - it's a common practice. But I don't see why Belichick should be criticized for spending draft choices on QBs - if you have a quality backup for someone like a Tom Brady, you can go...

    There are a couple of QBs missing from your list: Matt Cassel (7th round) and Brian Hoyer (UDFA). Both earned starting jobs in the NFL after they left the Patriots, as did Mallet.

    I understand completely your comment about same old, same old.

    I was 5 in 1959 (the year the AFL was founded - first games were played in 1960). But I didn't start following the Patriots until...

    There was a Super Bowl appearance and a fair amount of success back in the Parcells/Bledsoe era (mid-90s).

    The team regressed when Pete Carroll was in charge (97/98/99) - I look upon that as a...

    But that would mean people on this board would have to start writing Steelers* on every post.

    Surely you can't be serious?

    You guys will never find all the listening devices Blount planted around the facilities. :D

    You guys are supposed to be talking about the Pats, and cheatin', and running up the score, and Kraft buying the referees, and that kind of stuff.

    Nothing worse than an OT thread that goes OT. :D

    Have you checked the penalty statistics for this year?

    Going into last night's game the Patriots were the most penalized team (by yardage). Steelers are heavily penalized too, about 100 yards...

    Steelers fans complaining about a team that plays hard-nosed defense?

    I hope Mel Blount doesn't read this board.

    I didn't see Johnny U in his prime. Nor any of the greats that pre-dated Johnny. But Brady is the best I've seen, although far from the most physically gifted.

    I see that you just can't help associating stars with the Pats. :D

    But even though we do have our share of transcendent players, the Patriots emphasize the team concept.

    You're right, not a good example of being patient with a high draft choice at the LB position.

    Pats are pretty happy with Hightower's development. He's starting to play like a first round draft choice should play.

    Patience is needed with some players. James Harrison is a good example.

    According to this article on ProFootballTalk, Harvin is a locker room cancer.

    Perfect for the Jets, though.

    I have never heard Belichick mention a single player by name after a loss, not since he's been coaching here. Don't know whether he did when he was in Cleveland.

    You nailed it - that's basically what Belichick says after every loss.

    And after every win he gives the credit to the players. He typically will say something like this: "I didn't throw a...

    You've played 4 of your first six games on the road, and you're 3-3. If you go 5-1 at home and 2-2 on the road the rest of the way you'll finish at 10-6.

    I think the Pats are loaded this year, but am probably looking at things through Elvis-shaped glasses. They'll win the AFC East fairly easily.
