Pats are going to be rested and angry when they play us next weekend.

I said that when everyone was talking about how good Butler was. I'm so glad we didn't make that trade.

Re: Cooks' Play Tonight for the Pats

I was rather opposed to the trade idea, as well. Didn't buy into the hype, and have seen way too many players (at any position) leave the Patriots and have far less success, often times becoming total busts.

That didn't mean that Butler couldn't have possibly been an exception, but I didn't like the odds. Particularly, in Butler's case, the coverage schemes they run would seem to assist in his overall grade. Which is why I think so little of sites like PFF, and their robotic grading systems.

I think our corners will do pretty well this year, provided they stay healthy. But the latter is always essential, is it not?

If I had a nickel for every time I heard that, the NFL would fine and suspend me.

Re: Cooks' Play Tonight for the Pats

He did ok but they got the same thing we got out of him; field stretcher. Have to bring something else to the table besides that as a WR1. He also got pushed around at times which I knew would happen. All I know is I started Hunt and benched Crowder tonight. Insane what that rookie did to the Pats.
Dude killed it.

The best thing that came from trading Brandin Cooks is not getting Malcolm Butler and a big cap hit but getting R.R and a rookie contract

Re: Cooks' Play Tonight for the Pats

Now all the pundits are saying the Patriots are going to kill us. Well, not so fast. We have a top 5 offense that will crush the Patriots. I mean look what Alex Smith did with a whole bunch of no name receivers. Our defense will be good enough to hold them to 17 points. 35-17 Saints and we still beat the Vikings 27-3.
All that 16-0 crap is gone and the anointing is over! wooooohooooooo

That's one way to look at it... another way to look at it, they could be worried about what Ingram/Peterson/Kamara can do to them, given that an unheralded rookie just trashed them on national TV.

We'll see...

Would love to see another Pats loss at our hands. FailClowns would start to panic more and melt.
