In terms of Akiem Hicks, I'm really struggling to believe a word he's saying.

I still believe Payton saw a defense out there he wanted to immulate and tried to make it happen no matter what. You have to have the right players in place to emmulate a Seattle or Denver.
Did he? Yeah.,. Hicks was so good at being a DT for the Pats they didn't even bother to re-sign him. They just let him walk. That tells me all I need to know.
