  • Pats will be just fine with Ballard

    They should still remember some of his great highlights, like this, this, and especially my particular favorite, this...

    I'm Commander Shepard, and this is my favorite team in the NFL.

    Football has been very, very good to us.
    After losing seasons 2013-15, the giants put up 11 wins in 16.. they are on way Back
    But for now we can console ourselves with this fact-

    1-Chicago, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Seattle
    2-Washington, Green Bay, Pittsburgh, Baltimore
    3-San Francisco, Dallas, Denver
    4-New York Giants!!!

        As long as he still has the QB, the Pats WILL be fine.
        Admit nothing. Deny everything. Make counter accusations.

              He's playing with Tom Brady, he'll be fine for sure. Honestly, he might even be more seasoned after next season. I say we try and pick him up after next season!

                Pretty much. They seem to reshuffle their offense every two years, anyway.

                  You obviously didn't watch any of the highlight links... Pats fans have firsthand experience in watching Ballard tear **** up. And if Eli could get him to do that, then common wisdom would say Brady can do more... right?

                    Thing is, Hernandez was far more athletic, and could line up out wide or in the backfield. Ballard is a massive downgrade.

                      I understand what you're saying, but when you have noi choice... Ballard is a great replacement. He can block and he can catch the ball. He hustles, I'm sure BB loves that in a player.

                      We might see a different offense, but I think they can rest assured Ballard is a good player on that field for them.

                        OK......

                          I hear you and I think that Ballard will be a decent player for them.

                          But when you're passing offense relies so much on the TE position and you lose two of the best TE's in the league, replacing them with Ballard is not going to even come close to fixing the hole in their offense.

                          When Ballard had success here he had Cruz and Nicks drawing most of the pass coverage. The Pats have one of the worst WR rosters in the league, so he won't get that luxury there . . . .

                            I don't need to watch any highlight films. Ballard will not come close to replacing the production of either Gronk or Hernandez. Since their passing offense relies so heavily on the TE position, that will be a huge problem for them.

                              Still, the common consensus is Brady, 'nuff said. I'm personally not so sure that Brady could do more with Ballard than Eli did. Not because Eli is anything super special, mind you, but because I still believe that Brady is OVERRATED.

                              Really there's no QB these days that makes the team around him by himself. Rodgers has fits when a 4-man front can get to him, Brady I still believe has been partially carried by the vast array of all-pro quality pass catchers his entire career (and having 8+ seconds to throw on every down due to his OL). Brees has shown that he depends much more on Payton's play-calling to play at an all-pro level, and Eli is, well, Mr. "I derp games for no reason"... Maybe Peyton could have carried a team by himself in his prime, but I don't think that really applies anymore.
