    Blaming the rain is an excuse. Julian Edelman caught it dry and wet. Hill had issues with drops last year and it continues.

    I think Edelman had at least one drop and all his passes were 3 feet from the LOS. everyone was dropping balls last night, it was very sloppy. That doesn't mean Hill is over his hands issue but I am not going to go crazy b/c he dropped a couple of balls last night.

    By the way, his drops last year were overblown. He only had a few it's just the one everyone remembers is the one that likely would have won the NE game.

    well it does hurt to stick with a guy but it hurts just as bad to get one year out of a guy u spent a 4th round pick on. I never understood the fascination on this player. Way too many people were praising this pick and to me it seemed like a disaster from day one.
    He was an overaged prospect for one , which is never good when they are still a raw playe to begin with.
    When death smiles upon you, the Infantry man smiles back. WV says Im not a patriot and Jeff Ireland is a Boss so it must be true.
