    It would be interesting to see what he could do with a healthy Gronk in the line-up. (Of course, that would only last for a few games until Gronk gets hurt again. :D)

    Now that the Pats have re-signed Wilfork, they will probably turn their attention to getting something done with Blount.

    It may take a little bit more than expected (money and/or contract length)...

    I don't think the Pats would have won against Seattle, although I doubt they would have lost as badly as Denver.

    But it's nice to know that you want to see the Pats in the Super Bowl again. :D

    Fair point - but just for the sake of accuracy, they were 18-0 going into that Super Bowl. Knowledgeable NFL fans usually grasp that a #1 seed has to win two playoff games prior to the Super Bowl.

    Well, I will agree that it's good to have a Super Bowl with no Harbaughs in it, but I can't really go along with point #2 in the OP. :D

    I am just amazed that a Broncos team that set all-time...

    Spikes will be testing free agency this year and the Patriots probably won't match any offers he gets. He too comes off the field on passing downs.

    Who's your o-line coach?

    No team has five first round draft choices on the offensive line. You have to have someone who can take the JAGs and get them to play as a unit.

    And not just the five...

    Linebacker in the NFL is a tough position to learn for many first year players. Sure, there are the Kuechley's that come along every now and then, but it often takes a year or two of learning what's...

    Mathis went for a below the knee tackle on Brady on a near sack, and that wasn't called (or noticed by Dierdorf).

    I don't possess the ability to see those kinds of plays - there's some weird kind of filtering that happens when I put on my game-day glasses. :D

    Agree that the PI call they got in the 2nd half was marginal.

    Don't recall any others.

    Next year doesn't look too tough, either. One quarter of the...

    A 3rd for Wallace seems high - he wasn't even the best WR on his own team. I thought the player had to be a "top-5 at his position" type in order to warrant 3rd round compensation.

    I don't know the exact formula, but it's a combination of salary, stats, and post-season honors (e.g. All Pro, Pro Bowl, etc.).

    Nice turnaround by you guys after the bad start - every team in the league is probably glad the Steelers are out of the playoffs.

    Small fine is all that's needed.

    Losing a draft pick should only be applied when a team is caught illegally using a video camera from a place where using a still camera would be OK. :D
