    Wonder why Plowboys can't leverage the skills of a guy like Beaseley or Edelman or Amendola, etc.

    Nothing wrong with imitating NE. Imitate success -- vs. dismal failure over a quarter century.
    Because you can't imitate Tom Brady. Which is the only way that cluster works.

      They cut him over a muffed punt in a preseason game and because Garrett said he couldn't play outside. A decade later, we have Beasley and Switzer doing the same thing.

        It's a very confusing process.

          [/B] Brady was a 6th round pick. Somebody taught him how to play QB. Not saying you can plug in a Tom Brady at QB all around the league. But how does anybody explain a QB like Garoppolo, a 2nd round NE pick. Seems like lots of "clusters" work in NE. Brady doesn't play the game all by himself.

                • Dak, not the most accurate guy in the world, is gonna have to quickly acclimate himself to a shitload of new receivers. Anyone else concerned?

                    You saw the alternative already. This will be different and hopefully much better.

                      I've been concerned since the Denver game.

                          So glad this can NEVER HAPPEN.

                          At least Austin has a chance to do something with the football.

                          WR by committee is fine so long as everyone is made to ruthlessly run proper routes or else get benched or cut.

                          Might actually start a tradition of next man up at the position.

                          • Kinda feel like there are a handful of vets I'd bring in at this point to solidify some things, though obviously on minimum contracts to see if they stick or if young guys can play at near the same level.

                            DT Jonathan Hankins
                            RB DeMarco Murray/RB CJ Anderson
                            S Kenny Vaccaro/S Tre Boston/S TJ Ward/S Tyvon Branch. I'd say Eric Reid.... but no chance with the flag thing.
                            LB Navorro Bowman/LB Derrick Johnson
                            TE Julius Thomas

                            Sprinkle a couple of these guys in here, might very well be better than RB Rod Smith, LB Joe Thomas, TE Geoff Swaim or Blake Jarwin, DT Richard Ash or Jihad Ward. I'm sure Kavon Frazier is the fourth safety and I'm not sure I want to cut him, but I feel like that position really still could use a guy if we don't get Earl Thomas.... which it seems basically guaranteed we don't, despite reports we are still interested.

                            • slurs cut Terrell McClain - another potential stop-gap solution.
