So easy to say if you're a pats fan after 4 SB wins.tims4wins said:That is definitely dumber. It is so hard to win a title. Denver has been loading up for a couple years with no Lombardis to show for it. I would rather be a contender every year than have a loaded team once every 3-4 gears
I know it's 99% because of bill and Brady but I'll leave 1% to the strategy of being a contender every year rather than loading up for 1 year.luckiestman said:So easy to say if you're a pats fan after 4 SB wins.
It's Mazz that gets on Ghost, saying he's overrated. It's Felger who says they never should have franchised him initially or signed him to that contract. Whenever he brings up not re-signing Revis, the first thing he says is, "They didn't have to re-sign Gostkowski, that would have given you $4M...."It's Mazz who thinks kickers are fungible, no?
Anyway, they both can suck it.
Nate Silver and the flunkies at 538 lost a ton of credibility when they created this controversy. Hard to take anything they say seriously going forward; the stats they used to "prove" their point could be debunked by most high school kids.They're doing deflategate/fumble analysis today. You've been warned.
Did they ever fallow up on the stats? A guy called in and said they were something like 24th in the league with 9 fumbles (and they have actually only lost 4). I actually called in and asked that they look at the rank, minus Brady's fumbles, because the deflation of a ball wouldn't matter in that case and the call screener said, I'll ask them about it, but don't get your hopes up.They're doing deflategate/fumble analysis today.

Carlton from Norwell might be the worst thing to ever happen to that radio station.Did they ever fallow up on the stats?

I looked in up, non-strip sack fumbles are at 4 for the pats for the year.
Felger was reading from the main board thread on it? The prospect-o-philes around these parts are pretty pissed off last time I checked.On Monday, I listened to show for literally five minutes (my podcast ended and I was a few minutes from my house) and Felger was reading Tuesday's show and how he was down in the Kimbrel trade. Did he ever explain why?
Everyone else was happy with it.
Did anyone point out that he is forever preaching that you shouldn't trade horses for ponies? Ergo, San Diego was the one making the mistake?Felger's take is that you don't give up assets for closers as they are too volatile you should just find them in the draft and/or scrap heap.
This was exactly my thought as well. In the past they've killed the team for doing too little, now its that they've given up too much? There is no action that can be taken that won't elicit the contrarian response.Did anyone point out that he is forever preaching that you shouldn't trade horses for ponies?

Fred just said that it was Felger and talking bout him and Rich being at the same show.I saw Felger walking down the street near the Beantown Pub on Friday night. Shook his hand and told him I enjoy his show sometimes. He laughed and said thanks.
Then, I'm 99% certain he was sitting right in front of me in the balcony at the My Morning Jacket show. Rocking out and having a good time. He seemed to be enjoying himself.
Does Mazz watch all games at a bar? He mentions it all the timeBedard gave Brady the Number One "Stud" of the game (in their "3 Up / 3 Down" game). Said he was the only QB in the league who could win that game considering the lack of open receivers, poor running attack and porous O-Line play in the passing game. Mazz, of course, chose Brady as his Number Three "Dud" of the game.
One guy re-watched the game with the All-22 film while charting each play. The other gay watched the game once in a bar with his buddies. Wonder who I should believe...
can't speak for Mazz (because I dont listen), but that was Felger's whole deal last night in the post game. His praise for the team's performance was effusive and sincere.Is this a new Felger and Mazz? Praising the Patriots for a gutsy, tough effort undermanned and on the road?
http://boston.cbslocal.com/2015/12/01/felger-on-david-price-hes-going-to-hate-it-here/?cid=facebook_98.5_The_Sports_Hub“Doesn’t it shake your confidence in their plan over there, whatever it is?” Felger said. “If you’re going to spend on a pitcher who’s in and around 30 for one of those big contracts, isn’t Jon Lester the perfect guy? The perfect guy. Proves he can pitch in this town in that park, proves he can pitch in those situations, tough, durable, perfect. So the fact that you won’t sign Jon Lester tells you that philosophically, you think those contracts for those players are stupid. OK, fine. The track record and the history actually bears that out. Good philosophy! No problem. The very next year you sign someone the same age who does not have half the track record, for the highest and most expensive contract in the history of Major League Baseball at that position? You have no clue. You have no plan.”
I'd say it depends on who Brady has to throw to but if it's everyone (besides Lewis) I think Flagler is right.i watched again today and big ups to Murray for saying Denver is like the 01 pats if the teams meet in the playoffs it will not be a 45-10 pats win like felger thinks
