    What Pats fans are saying as their dynasty crumbles

    According to Rapoport, the Butler benching was in regards to him arriving a day later than the team due to being sick, struggled in practice due to possibly sickness and/or just poor play, and there was a minor violation on team curfew during Super Bowl week - said he may have allegedly come in late after a Rick Ross concert...

    I would agree that he needs to spend more time on the playbooks... I would also agree that he needed to spend less time in the gym, but due to inujury, he sorta had to... And I still stand by my comment that he was rushed back by Shanahan far too quickly. And I think that plays a big part of his head not being in the game the way it should be. I also agree that his rookie season was typical in terms of playcalling, but it was pretty extraoridinary in terms of results... Especially for that team. As far as Talent, I agree that Morris is more spit than polish but he gets results. I'd say he and Jackson were about even. And you're right about the WR/TE talent... after looking back, It might be a bigger edge to the skins... They had Garcon, and Santana Moss. But the rest was Leonard Hankerson, Josh Morgan, Aldrick Robertson,Brandon Lloyd for a couple of years, and Fred Davis - but it when he started to falter on-and-off the field. Cooley was already hurt and gone by the time Griffen got there... Looking back at Bradford whether we are talking about his first 3 years in the league or the same time period that RG3 was in the NFL, he didn't have much to work with - Brandon Gibson, Austin Pettis, Brandon Lloyd (Jeez, where hasn't this guy played?) Danny Amendola, Danario Alexander, Mike sims-Walker, Chris Givens, Lance Kendricks, Billy Bajema, Brian Quick, Tavon Austin, Jared Cook, Laurent Robertson, Greg Salas, the great Stephen Spach, etc... It's a virtual Who's Who of "Where are they now" players... So, I'm eating some crow on that now... for some reason, I Thought he had more talent around him... I knew Isaac Bruce, Ricky Proehl, and Torry Holt weren't there, but I didn't know it was that lean. As far as not knowing when to shaddap, I agree, but it's getting hard to fault a player these days when they say something dumb becasue it seems like they CONSTANTLY have a mic in their face and these sports reporters/writers are getting closer and closer to being on the level of the National Enquirer. But I still think it would be well worth a short term vet minimum deal... Bottom line, If we could have RG3 on this roster competing for a backup roster spot for the same money we are paying Sanchez or Barkley, I think almost everyone on here would be in favor of that. Hopefully, Bradford stays healthy and passes for 4000 yards 30 TD's and leads us to a Lombardi...

    That's what he's been since his injury and since Shanahan rushed him back too early. Prior to all of that calamity, he had a Pro Bowl rookie season that took his team to the playoffs. And, he could read defenses, throw accurately, and had solid pocket prescence. Like I said... look at the numbers and they're pretty much the same for both players. I would also argue that Bradford had better talent around him. And I wanna be clear that I'm not saying go after him in terms of paying him a ton of money and give him a long-term deal and guaranteed starting job, but more like what we are doing with Sanchez right now... a 1 or two year deal and see what he can do. I also wanna be clear that I hope Bradford pans out and plays like a maniac for us. I think it's easy for us all to hate on RG3 because he's a hated rival, but I do think that there's something there worth looking at and until Kelly drafts that QB of the future, we are looking at possible patchwork QB's until that happens. I don't think any of the guys on this roster are or were in Kelly's long-term plans for QB. I think he's just making do with what's available for now. Unless Bradford is lights out this year, I think there's a strong possiblity that none of these QB's are on this roster in 2 years time.

    Well, I think he has more upside and talent than any of the backups on our roster. Plus, it's exactly what we did with Braqdford here this year... Bradford drafted 1st overall and RG3 2nd overall... Both had great college careers... Both won the Heisman...Both had a good year in the NFL, But the rest has been serious injuries and inconsistency. The numbers are actually better on RG3's side vs. Bradford. How would it be any different than what we are doing right now with Bradford this year?

    I followed him pretty closely in college and I don't remember anything about him having a huge ego, but I wouldn't doubt that the coaches weren't hard on him. He helped bring them to that level and I'm sure the coaching staff didn't wanna rock the boat. I'm a Arkansas Razorback alum and I can tell you that in that southern area of the country, college football reigns supreme. We were heated rivals in the SWC days. The SWC dissolved and many of those strong teams sorta fell off the map - Houston, Baylor, Rice, TCU, SMU (they sorta casused their own demise), etc. Still, they were dying to be competitive again and I'm sure that as long as they were winning, the coaches were happy and not gonna push them and rock the boat. Another reason why I like RG3 coming out of college is that he improved every single year he was there. Aside from his injury season, he improved his numbers and quality of play each year. I honestly hope Kelly pursuers him if he stays healthy and becomes available next season. People can blast me all they want, but pursuing RG3 is really no different than what we've done with Bradford here this season. Plus, I see Griffen fitting into Kelly's system better here than Sanchez, Barkley, and obviously tebow.

    I still remember a commercial ESPN aired for the draft the year after Carr was drafted... It was a clip of a Texans game the season before when Carr was a rookie and it showed him walking up preparing to take the snap under center except they CGI'd out the entire Texans O-line so the only thing it showed was the Center, Carr, the RB and the WR's.... then it said "What does your team need?" So, yeah... His O-line was just awful in Houston.... I never understand why expansion teams don't invest heavier in O-line! It's THE SINGLE most important aspect of a football team!

    Oh yeah... For sure the Browns... I guess you could argue that they have essentially been an expansion team though... Before that, they had Kosar, and Brian Sipe who were both very good... Tim Couch is another QB that I think could've succeeded in this league if he hadn't been drafted by the expansion Browns...Guy got sacked like he was groceries... Still, they have not found the answer at QB yet and it's been 15 years... Befoe Stafford, the Lions were dying to get a legitimate QB too.

    I liked RG3 coming out of college and I still think he had the talent and ability to be a great QB in the NFL. But, he went to Washington, and they just CANNOT develop and groom QB's... Their QB drought is starting to get as bad as the Bears. Think of all the QB's they've gone through in the last 20 or so years... Mark Rypien, Doug Williams, Jay Schroeder, Gus Frerrotte, Heath Shuler, Jeff Hostetler, Trent Green, Brad Johnson, Rodney Peete, Jeff George, Tony Banks, Kent Graham, Shane Matthews, Patrick Ramsey, Danny Wuerrfel, Rob Johnson, Tim Hasselbeck, Mark Brunell, Jason Campbell, Todd Collins, McNabb, Rex Grossman, John Beck, Kirk Cousins, RG3, Colt McCoy... Going back further, who was the last truly great QB for them? Doug Williams? Theismann? Since then, It's averaging out to about a QB a season! You can't blame it all on Snyder because he took over in 1999, but I would say he has been responsible a great deal of the roster meddling since that time and the short time periods QB's have been given there. If they don't produce quickly, they get yanked... The almost constant coaching changes and excessivem, overpaid, and unnecessary free agent signings haven't helped things either. QB's set foot in Washington and it kills their careers.... It's like Pitchers that sign for the Colorado Rockies... they just cannot develop young talent, and even experienced free agents that have had success prior just seem to lose all ability once they suit up. If he can come back from injury and get on a decent team, I still think RG3 can be a great QB in this league. I just think he's lost faith in the skins organization and team as a whole and it's not gonna get better until he is on a different roster. There's just too much drama and inconsisitency there for QB's to succeed IMO.
