With Gilislee, our second string offense consists of:
Garoppolo
Gilislee,Lewis
Allen
Mitchell Dola

thats honestly a decent offense.

 Check out these highlights against the Patriots last year at 40 seconds in.

 Shows real toughness on the goaline, he runs over Jamie Collins, and again against the Seahawks. No fear running up the middle.

 Great sign for a smaller 5'11" 210 pound running back.

Blount was a good rb for us. I'm excited about the White/Lewis/Burkhead/Gillislee combo, which is ridiculously deep. So are the WRs: Edelman, Cooks, Amendola, Hogan, Mitchell, and Slater.  Combined with Gronk, Dwayne Allen, and Devlin, Brady has at least 11 legit weapons. I don't remember him having so many weapons.

We might as well cut our punter. We may not need him at all this season  :laugh:

Blount sat about ten rows in front of me at Cs games. I'll miss seeing him on the Jumbo.

Yeah same. Hope he's still around for these playoffs at least  ;)

I'll miss his presence at the games. He was there often, really threw himself into the overall Boston sports scene, which I love.

I mean, LeAean McCoy is that Bills offence. Gillislee was a solid backup for them. If McCoy is injured - what are they going to do? Surely it didn't escap Belichick's recollection that we lost to them last year on the last "no Brady" game...

Gillislee averaged 5 YPC in that game. Hurts Buffalo, and maybe prevents them from beating us next year. Cruel move.

My gut feeling thinks that Sherman-to-Patriots talks will intensify the next few days as the Draft goes on.

Not saying it will happen (it probably won't), but just something to monitor.

Idk how I'd feel about it if it meant Butler was gone though...  :(

He wasn't there, but Jimmy Garappolo was. They kept showing JG on the Jumbotron.

Overheard one guy in my row talking with the usher:

Guy in my row: "Man, I'm happily married, but Garappolo is one of the most beautiful men I've ever seen. If he asked me to leave my wife for him, I'd have to consider it."

Usher: "I was just saying the same thing to somebody else!"

Oh, wait, that guy in my row was me. Note to self: No bringing wife to the games.

My friend's Floridian wife makes fun of my friend and I for our obsessive love of Brady.

We have a running joke now, I tell her it's perfectly normal, and that Tom Brady successfully turned seven million New England men into bisexuals.

Brady lives about two miles from us and I told my wife that if she ever has a chance to have an affair with him, not only is she allowed to but, in fact, she is encouraged to, since it would raise my "social standing" if I could say that my wife had an affair with TB12. She thought this was really funny and told a couple of her girlfriends at work. Turns out that their husbands had all, independently, told their wives the same thing.

Okay, enough on that subject.

ESPN mentioned that the Browns asked the Pats about JG again last night. Clearly the Pats said no. Given how much teams were willing to shell out for quarterbacks (The 49ers should be in jail for grand theft.), what do you think they offered? Wonder what would have gotten the trade done.

LOL. Wait all night for Patriots to draft.

And they trade down from #72 to #83 and #124

Patriots only picked 4 guys in the draft, and then a bunch of un-drafted guys.

Smallest draft class in Patriots history I believe.

But essentially they also added Cooks, Gillislee, Ealy and Allen through their trades (involving the picks), so I guess it's fine.

The only concern I have is that Mel Kiper gave our draft an A. He loves to hate on the Pats and is usually wrong, so I'm sorry that trend didn't continue.
