I am a retired hydro worker and Pats fan for more than 30 years.
Hey Roy—Zander Freund here, Bleacher Report's Community GM.
I had to edit this comment for its use of profanity:
"Well I have said it for years now. THE FAT FUCKING "" RAT "" MANGINI IS THE WORST COACH IN NFL HISTORY !!!
GOODBYE ERIC MANGINI YOU FUCKING LOSER RAT,, BACK TO THE SEWERS OF NEW YORK WITH YOUR KIND AND STAY THERE !!! MAYBE YOU CAN FUCK THEM UP TOO !!!
He couldn't coach a highschool team let alone a Pro team.
All I can say is what I said last year,,,,Mangini will lose his job over the spy gate BS and Bill Billecick will coach New England for many years to come.
Mangini is the Rat that started the whole spygate thing because he was jealous of the way the Pats.,coached their teams and fat Eric couldn't win against the pats without stealing the Pats playbooks etc.,etc.
Now in comes Brett Favre ( known drug abuser ) to show everyone how it's done ??? I also said that he can't play in the cold anymore and look what he did ,,,he froze up again just like his last game in Green Bay.
I think he is still using drugs for all his troubles and some pains and can't take the cold like most older guys. Just look what he did yesterday alone,,,he threw the ball everywhere to the wrong recievers or way over their heads and was mixed up most of the day.???
Also,,,are we going to see Brett cry his eyes out on national TV again,,,because that's what he is all about like most spoiled bratts he can't get his own way and do what he once did so now all he can do is hope all the women football fans will feel sorry for him and that will make it better for him,,,,,at least that's how he thinks. Please retire Brett and this time SHUT THE FUCK UP ALONG THE WAY OUT !!
NOBODY WILL MISS YOU THIS TIME SO GO AND CRY WITH YOUR PILLS AND STAY HOME !!!! "
Please avoid using the f-word in the threads. Consider this a formal warning.
Hey Roy—Dave Mo here, a Bleacher Report Community Coordinator.
I've been spending time on our Pats page and read a couple of your old articles. Really on-point analysis...you do good work.
Given that you haven't written in a while, I thought I'd check in and see if you're interested in picking up your coverage again. What do you say?
If not, it would be great if you could give me some feedback on why you decided to stop writing and what we could have done to better serve you. If you wouldn't mind, please shoot me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org with any thoughts.
Thanks so much,
Hey Roy. Good to hear from you. Been busy with my straight job lately so that's been taking up some time. I hate this time of the year. I'm already craving football and it's not even the draft yet but thankfully it's at the end of teh month so that will be a nice tease before training camp...that and all the Pacman rumors which grow by the day. Very torn about it...he's a difference maker on the field and he and T. Newman would be the best cover corner duo in the league BUT he's a scumbag and trouble. I don't want him screwing with what the Cowboys have going. Goodell hates his guts and whatever team he goes to will be under a severe microscope. He'd be a pain in the ass BUT his talent might outweigh the risk in Jerry's eyes.
He's more obsessed then ever about getting back to the Super Bowl especially after that debacle againts the Giants. 2008 is going to be a Super Bowl or bust year for the Cowboys. There's no excuse especially if they get Pacman and the general consensus is that they will. Hope you and your family have been well. Talk soon my friend.
Yeah, to me the Pats were the best team in the league last year...and even though I'm a Patriots hater they will go down as one of the greatest teams in history for me. I also think they will easily be a favorite for next year.
I just wanted to let you know that Bleacher Report has launched out of beta with an updated look and feel and some great new features. Check out the "Game On" link in the header to find out more.
Next week we'll be launching the site to the world with some public announcements—and it'd be great to get a contribution from you between now and Tuesday to make Bleacher Report's launch a success.
Let me know if you need any help with ideas or have questions. Have a great weekend Roy!
I wish we could have stayed but we were only in Scottsdale for the Barrett Jackson Auction for a week. I was going to stay but there wasn't a place to stay anywhere and a room in a house was $1,000.00/day scalpers tickets were the same price in the upper SRO. God damn taxi's in that city are the biggest ripoff I've ever had ,,anywhere,,,,$15-20./block.
Some asshole sent me a fake newspaper sports page about Brady's arm being in a cast and after throwing 3 picks I thought it was real and posted it,,,,,,,,,,,,Fuck man do I feel stupid.

Are you in Arizona?
If so, enjoy...I couldn't make it
Yes I believe that Moss deserves recognition for what he did this season , but, randy has a past that has had it's down side over the years and having one great year with Tom brady isn't enough to prove himself to the people who do the voting. I agree he should have had a point or two but in the grand scheme of things he wouldn't have set the records without Tom Brady. Moss came to N.E.,as a dark horse and everyone was wondering if Belichick has made the right choice and it took Randy a few months to get on track before the season as we all know. Then the season starts and he's off like a race horse and dosen't look back! Randy is
or was a tempermental guy that needed someone like Bill and Tom to get him to be a team player unlike the teams he had been with before coming to N.E. So,after getting a taste of being part of an organization like N.E.,was something different for him and he had to adjust and he did.
Getting back to whether Randy should have gotten a few votes though , it's not only Pat's' fans if any that cast their votes and they mostly go with the champions of the day and not a newcomer like Moss. So I am sure that if Randy Moss is still a Patriot next season and has another great year he might just get the votes. Untill then ,,I do believe he is the best receiver that I have seen but lets see him do it again.
By the way tom Brady throws mostly to Moss because he can throw the ball over most of his coverage and randy is tall enough to somehow?? tip it into his hands and chest and hang onto it. That's a hard thing to defend against.

I wasn't degrading Brady at all and I was imagining "connections". I wasn't saying that Tom Brady should have never won the award either, or that he was wrong for winning it. You don't have to tell me that they're only concerned with winning, I've watched their Superbowls and I've watched Brady work, he is a great leader, no doubt. I merely wrote that article in retrospect as to how none of the writers considered Randy Moss at all. I think he should have gotten at least one vote, perhaps that vote that Favre got, because there is no way that Brady elevates Donte' Stallworth, Jabar Gaffney, or Wes Welker to the kind of status that Randy Moss has. I also mentioned some of the receivers that he made great and elevated in his time, especially seeing as he got Deion Branch a brand new shiney contract in Seattle. Also, Brady had never thrown more than 10 TDs to a receiver in his time in New England (a testament to Moss' receiving abilities, as well as Brady's ability to spread out the offense), so is it fair to say that their talents have rubbed off equally on each other?
No problem, Roy
Good luck in the playoffs and hope to see u in the Super Bowl!!
