Just had the great Larry Fitzgerald on Sirius and he was asked what he would think if he saw a wide receiver lined up against him to cover.... he simply said "It's disrespectful"...</P>


Its not the Giants WR's talking **** about Edelman, its a level of pride the WR's have... I love this group we have. </P>

yeah definately anything the Giants said about that issue has to due with feeling disrespected.

What's funny is wasn't Antonio Brown covering him in the Pro Bowl and Fitz got an easy TD....

Why would anyone use the term "disrespect"? As if BB is interested in dissing an opposing player at the possible cost of losing a game? He's going with what he's got. And MM shouldn't be saying anything about Edelman -- just foam at the mouth at your possible opportunities if you really think that Edelman is that bad. Would MM rather have Revis covering him?

This makes no sense to me. I mean it's not like the Pats are sending Edelman out to **** with people's heads. Obviously they think he's the best man for the job, if they didn't have injuries he wouldn't be out there. Makes no sense to be offended.

Kind of dumb statment because its not meant to be disrespectful at all. Edlemen is their best choice for what they need him for at the moment. </P>


Is it disrespectful to have Hernandez line up as a running back. Or for a RB to throw a pass on an option.? What about when a Dlineman comes in on offense to act as blocker? What about when Vrabel would catch passes as a TE in goal line situations.??</P>


Its all bull ****. Edlemen playing CB/DB is absolutley fine and the guy should be respected for doing what his team asks of him.</P>

As much as I think that being "dissed" or "disrespected" is one of the most over usedand abused terms usedin the last decade or so - i get it here. </P>


Whether its Fitz or Rio or whoever, they are starting WR's in the NFL ...and if you think you can just throw some also-ran into the game whos not a true DB to stop them, you're reducing their ability as a WR in their minds... </P>


These players are asked a millions questions... .god forbid they actually skip the PC crap and answer them honestly. </P>

Yeah exactly this.

I mean if BB sent a guy out of position when they're up by 40 points or something, I would call that disrespectful. But this is starters for the super bowl we're talking about, nobody is ****ing around.

On the other hand, I do understand why guys wouldn't feel the need to show respect to a guy playing out of position, too. If you say you respect Edelman's ability to cover you, what does that say about yourself as a player?

thats a narrow minded veiw of Fitz and MM. If the Pats had a better solution they would do it. How is putting yuor best player at the moment on the field to help the team disrespecting anyone? Itsnotlike they have Revis on the bench and put Edlemen in to piss off a WR....</P>

Yup.

I can't wait for Belichick to lose. The pats mystique days are over.

I can't wait till he and Brady retire and Patriots go back to being the trash they are.

I dont know - I see it as them feeling "disrespected" <U>within the context of the game</U>.... no anger or animosity involved at all...(which is what i think people are finding objection with)and that the only result of them feeling this way is that they will take it to that player... and take it to them hard. </P>

As a player, I could understand why a wr would be upset being covered by another wr, but I don't BB is trying to prove anything. BB is doing it because he has to. The Pats defense hasn't played well season long. If the Pats had semi good defense, we would be in trouble this weekend. For that reason alone, I think this game is evenly match if Gronk is healthy. We don't match up well with TEs, and then to face a 2 TE set spells trouble. If Gronk plays, I can see both teams scoring more than 30 points each.

We don't match well with tightends?</P>


You are aware in the past month we have played Gonzalez, Finley, Davis. </P>


And this is there total stats. </P>


11 receptions, 193 yards, 2 touchdowns. And most of those yards and only 2 touchdowns are from Davis. </P>


So I think it's safe to say we have played 3 legit tightends really well. </P>


Also, you say if Gronk plays you could see both teams scoring over 30? Last meeting with the Patriots we only allowed 20 points. And that was with a healthy Gronkowski. </P>


Give the Giants defense more credit then that...</P>

What I keep hearing about BB is that you cant count on tendencies you see with him. For most of the year the Pats have been more of an "underneath" threat with Welker and the TE's... I really do expect to see the Pats trying amore vertical approach with Welker, Edelman and 85.... especially with Gronk's ankle. </P>

I agree what are they supposed to say about a WR trying to cover them.
