    Timmons would last 2 seconds in the Free Agent Market. He needs thumper beside him that is not names Foote. Manti Te'o would look very nice, and we may be in position to get him if trends continue.

    Most sensible people know that. I'm admittedly a Timmons fan and I'm not happy with what I have seen so far this year except in the Jets game where he was sentter the QB about half a dozen times. That is what we should see more not "thumping." That was never his strength and it takes away from what he has aways done best and that is move sideline to sideline.

    Speaking of Linebackers not playing well. I watched the Pats vs Ratbirds and Hightower, who many on here were pimping, looked absolutely horrible. On running plays he never attacked the LOS but waited for the blocker to come to him 5 yards down the field. Then he never seemed to get off the block. He was beaten several times on the pass by Ray Rice. When Rice did that to Farrior we all wanted to put Farrior in the old folks home.

    I'm not saying Hightower is a bust. It's far too early in his career to say that. I am saying he doesn't look like the second coming of Dick Butkus like some on here thought he would be. He looks more like the second coming of Lawrence Timmons.

    and where were those tackles...not behind or even at the LOS, but 3 or more yds up field..... dude needs serious work on run defense if he wants to continue to play there.

    You think Timmons could cover Ray Rice? You think any of our LBs can cover Rice? Nope.

    Yup..... If you want a LB that doesn't tackle a RB until about a 5 yard gain, Timmons is your guy. He could even provide you 100 of those tackles

    I watched all the Pats games this season and I agree...Hightower looks terrible.

    You are probably right. A 4-3 team would sign him quickly. Not a 3-4 team.
