Re: Final Cuts From Around the NFL

Wonder why the Pats released Meriweather?


I know they had issues with him "free lancing" (aka lavar arrington'ing it up) and benched his ass. Wonder if that came back into play.

BostonHerald.com - Blogs: Rap Sheet» Blog Archive » Why Patriots S Brandon Meriweather hasn’t been starting…

edit: I think I answered my own question.

Patriots Cut Meriweather, Morris, Tate, Others « CBS Boston
Quote:
WBZ-TV’s Levan Reid On Meriweather:

Brandon Meriweather has been in Bill Belichick’s dog house for over a year now. Those days are over, word is Brandon Meriweather has been released.

Meriweather is a 2-time pro bowler and one of the hardest hitters in the league but he loves to freelance. In a Bill Belichick system, freenlancing is not welcome. The Pats have also released James Sanders. So now the safeties in this team are Patrick Chung, Josh Barrett, Sergio Brown and James Ihedigbo.

If BB doesn't like freelancers on his team, what does he think Haynesworthless is going to do?

Re: Final Cuts From Around the NFL

I'm sure this incident didn't endear him with Belichick.

Re: Final Cuts From Around the NFL

Everette Brown cut by Panthers. Too small for 4-3 DE. I always thought that he was playing out of position. Could be a fine pass rusher at OLB for a 3-4 team. He has excellent speed, as I recall.

Tyrone MacKenzie cut by Tampa Bay. I like him at ILB.

Igor Olshansky would be a nice pickup, IMO. The choice is between a player who is a run stopper and not a pass rusher or one of two players who are neither (Golston and Scott). All three of them are about the same age, so that's not a factor. I think our DL rotation was hurt badly when we lost JJ for the season.

Can anybody think of a guard we could possibly pick up? We're hurting at that position too, IMO.

As I've said before, I think losing JJ was a blow but not as bad as people are making it out to be. For one, he was an unknown so it's really hard to say "how much of a blow" it really is. If there's any upside to his injury at all, we lost him early on. It's not like we lost him in the fifth game of the season and now the defense really has to make major adjustments.

In terms of rotation and depth, I think we'll be just fine. If Carriker can find his groove this year, the defensive line will be pretty good.

Wouldn't it be something if Orakpo or Kerrigan torched Dockery and annihilated Romo? It would make me giggle like a little school girl.

Did Holliday make the Cardinals? What a job by Shanah-allen in getting two starters for a couple of throwaways and a 6th round pick.

...and all of his draft picks are signed. (including 3 PS players)

Holliday, and who is the other throwaway you're referring to?

I think he did. Regardless, we got a starter for peanuts. A 5th rounder=special teamer on average and Holliday is purely a depth player. Depth player + special teamer for a starting RB. Hell yeah I like that.

Unlike giving up a all-pro CB and a 2nd rounder

I think he received an injury settlement and didn't play any preseason games due to a back injury. Pass.
