Weird signing, but Brady is reunited with Terrell. I feel luke-warm about this signing, but who knows. Belichick has turned worse players into better ones.

David Terrell? Who CARES!

Patriots have quietly made themselves stronger. With the additions of David Terrell,and Tim Dwight-WRs, Duane Starks-CB, and Monty Beisel-ILB They are deeper.
Also there are the rookies who didnt see much of the field last season. Ben Watson-TE,
Marquise Hill DE/OLB, Guss Scott-SS/FS, Dexter Reid-FS, Cedric Cobbs-RB, and PK Sam-WR. Thats a lot of solid new players for the Pats. This doesn't include this years Draft picks. So any one who thinks the Patriots got weaker hasn't been paying attention.

Funny, you would have said the same thing about David Patten before he arrived on our team. He turned out to be pretty good and certainly helped us win. Same goes for 7th round selection David Givens. I am not saying Terrell will be good or bad, but the 100% dismissal is nothing short of pure comedy.

The difference between Terrell and a late round pick who turns into a good player, is that Terrell has had four years to prove his worth.

Nervous of the rest of your team?? Sure, anyone who isn't would just be ignorant. However, am I nervous you signed David Terrell?? Hell no. The guy s*cks, and hasn't proven s*it in the NFL. Can you say bust?

Could he be a bust? Sure, but what is the risk? We gave up nothing to obtain his services. This is win/win only. We win by picking up a 26 year old former 1st round pick for nothing and win by if he is bad we cut him. Wasted no players or draft picks to pick him up. Also, it is too early to call him a bust. Now, he could be a bust, but even you would have to admit that being with the current Bears vs. the current Patriots are two different scenarios, right?

I am not asking you to think he is the 2nd coming of Jerry Rice, but if this was a Fins signing you would be optimistic that he could produce. Plus, playing with Brady should help him, no?

Lastly, I trust Bill Belichick & Scott Pioli more than I do FininPatsLand and ih8brady when it comes to player personnel matters. The part that always makes me laugh is the "set-in-stone" attitudes and comments in this thread. Who knows what he'll do. It is actually irrlevant. The point is that we got him for nothing instead of trading away all out picks on players that may or not pan out ala Feely, Gordon & Boston.

This is yet another move made wisely by Belichick & Pioli. No risk, all possible reward.

but should people be afraid of this signing? I wont until Terrell starts producing. He's not like Corey Dillon who was productive but on a lousy team.

I have no idea who wrote anyone shouild be afraid of the signing. The only way people would be afraid was if he were to live up to the potential of his drafting. I agree to that.

But, it is an intruiging signing if he were to live up to it. Again, no risk signing for the Pats. That's all.

Would I be so optimistic if we signed him to make a thread about him?? No. I don't care if he is a former first round pick and young. We had a guy like that last offseason, his name was Antuan Edwards, and he didn't even make it through the season for us, cause he s*cked. There's a reason young former first rounders are on the market. It's cause they aren't very good. :lol:

Give it a rest..

Give what a rest? Who are you talking to son? I posted a thread in the correct section, talking AFC football. If you don't care, then don't read and don't post. All I am doing is talking football. If you actually read the post I wrote that you quoted, you'd see I am not hyping the signing at all, just discussing it.

Why the hostility in your post? I understand you must be frustrated not having a good team lately, and doubling that living in New England, but that is no reason to take your bitterness out on a post/poster that doesn't fuel your anger.

And since when does one player equal another player simply because of their draft status? Man, I don't know who pissed you off, but ease up on your high and mighty attitude. Again, re-read my post. I am not here to brag, boast or troll, simply talking fooball in the damn correct section.

Sorry I can't be as perfect as you. Sheesh, lighten up!

Hey man listen, I was not trying to come across as an *** in this thread, but apparently that's what happened. I knew I shouldn't have replied to a thread about this guy. All I've heard for the past couple of weeks or for however long he has been signed, is how great of a player he is from Patriot fans up here. It's just so frustrating to have people pronounce him a great player just because Belichick and Pioli signed him. And on top of that, about half of these people talking didn't have anything to say about the Patriots before 2001, now you just can't shut them up.

Anyway, none of this is your fault, I didn't mean to come across rude. Was it a good signing IMO? No. But then again as you pointed out earlier, there is absolutely no risk in it for them. So I can see why it's not a terrible deal either.

Thanks for the reply, it was mighty big of you and I appreciate it. Though we may disagree about one's right to root for the team ;), I can understand your frustration. Just know I am not a trash talker and just want to talk good football.

Anyway, apology accepted and I hope we can talk some good football in the future. :)

Implying that people are scared because of Terrell's signing.

Anyway, you're right that Terrell could pan out but so could all our PS and NFLE players. Every team has "project players" that could turn their careers around.

Here's the thing though.....how many players on our roster are made up of cast offs? Patten was, and now he signed a big FA deal because of what he did with us....most of our OLine.....Vrabel was a castoff, or at least a guy who had never really done much, so was Poole....how many teams would like them now?

Thats why this is more than just the signing of a castoff.
