"Society became divided into camps in which no man trusted his fellow. To put an end to this, there was neither promise to be depended upon, nor oath that could command respect; but all parties dwelling rather in their calculation upon the hopelessness of a permanent state of things, were more intent upon self-defence than capable of confidence." - Thucydides, probably predicting the rise of internet message boards
I like our practice squad receivers better than what the pats are fielding atm. Watch them start poaching.....

Hard to believe that Geno Smith is outplaying Brady.
And with that said Smith throws a pick.
Spoke too soon
They'll have Amendola and Gronkowski back, I wouldn't bury them just yet if those two can stay on the field. Losing Vereen hurts them, though...Washington is the only back who can catch, and he looks washed up.
Thompkins and Dobson will get more in sync with time, but if those two remain the #2 and #3 options for an extended period the Patriots are in real trouble.
It should also be pointed out that Hill and Gates are at least as bad with their route running and hands, yet Geno is staying calm and trying to make it work.
I can't blame Brady if he is pissed at the organization. He takes a cut in pay and watches them allow Welker to walk to the Broncos and brings in a guy that isn't great in Amendola. Granted Amendola is talented and will help him but not to the extent Welker did nor is he great simply because he can't stay on the field.
