Following Former Patriots

Not that he was at all what the patriots needed or were looking for last year, but there were times when Cordarelle Patterson was lining up at running back. Surprised we did that least hear about the possibility of bringing in Vereen.

Jimmy G with an excellent performance against KC.

Jimmy G with an excellent performance against KC.
Mullens wasn’t bad either.
Jimmy G definitely played much better than the previous week.
I watched that entire game and he made two wonderful throws (one being a TD), but he also threw a pass on 4th and 1 right into the line.
And the only excellent QB last night plays for KC.

Edit: I only brought up Mullens because I wanted to point out the fact that (I know it is only preseason) it is possible that the KC defense still isn’t very good.

Long form Jonas Gray article on ESPN. Overall good but he seems a bit delusional - he basically thinks that if not for missing that meeting he’d be on a big contract somewhere.

It can be really hard to tell what’s suicide and what’s overdose.

The real takeaway I guess is holiday can exacerbate depression and addiction issues, so we should all take time to reach out to people we know who may be battling either or both.

“Reich said the Colts "knew he had the issue in the preseason, missed a couple of weeks with the knee, but once we got going it was never really on the injury report.”

The Colts manipulating the Injury Report. Nothing to see here, folks.

Cyrus Jones undergoes open heart surgery.

Like he says in his post. Crazy to have such a sudden operation on something he's been living with his whole life

I looked into it like 10 years ago, but the process seemed daunting and I didn’t have any contacts. I’m content just to lurk.
Got to say I like the cut of your job. The raw agression against a backup defensive back going through a serious medical issue is just breathtaking.

To be fair, I have nothing against Reche Caldwell. I’m sure he’s a nice guy, he just kind of sucked at football, but whatever. Not like I would have done any better.

Although I just checked his Wikipedia, and it turns out he was sentenced to 27 months in federal prison for selling MDMA. Also he’s recently been accused by the Justice Department of conspiracy to commit healthcare fraud.

I guess you could say he really dropped the ball on his post-NFL life.

I’m sorry.

I love Kevin Faulk almost unconditionally. But if he doesn’t smoke weed in the 2008 off-season, Brady probably never tears up his knee.

I may get over that at some point. Carry on.

In fairness, that's a well-known and common consequence of smoking weed. If only someone had told him!

This is absolutely awful to read:



With current NFL players set to vote on a collective-bargaining proposal that will affect thousands of their retired former colleagues, the wife of one ex-New England Patriots fullback has posted pictures of her incapacitated husband to plead with the union to reject the owners' offer because it limits disability protection.
...
According to Monique, he now relies on total and permanent disability benefits, which could be limited if the current NFL players union votes to approve the owners' CBA proposal before Saturday's deadline.
But as the former director of disability benefits for the NFL/NFLPA told the Daily Mail, the offer contains several proposals to curtail retired player benefits.

That is terrible. And I am NOT saying its not true....but I thought Patrick Pass has been part of a traveling football clinic/Alumni Game thing that the Patriots Alumni do. I am like 75% sure that Pass was one of the guys who showed up. Was a "Star" of the group very involved very athletic (running go's and beating everyone on the field diving all over the field etc etc). I think I have seen this twice around 2016 and 2017. So while we all know that the NFL takes a terrible toll on a players body, Its just weird (to me) that He is having these kind of medical issues now after looking "fine" if overweight.

Again maybe I am wrong and it wasnt Pass. Or maybe he was dealing with these issues during the alumni stuff. Or maybe it just came with ageing and the toll caught up with him.

Whatever the issue I hope he gets healthy. If I am recalling correctly Pass was great with the kids and was a very likable guy in the few mins we interacted.
