Mallet, Vereen and Ridley and Cannon have not been able to upseat the starters but they have decent potential. Dowling got hurt last year, but in the two games he played, I thought he did well.
On division winning teams to get 3 starters a year by draft choices I think is good.
This is just as much of a homer post as any that you guys accuse Jets fans of posting on this message board. Really, Solder? Did you watch Chung the last couple of years? He's a poor man's Landry. After Mayo's rookie season, he's never been the same.
You could easily substitute Mangold, Brick, Harris, Revis, (who are all way better than anyone up on that list in their respective positions minus Gronk), and post the same thing for the Jets.
The difference is that you struck gold with your QB.
No Brady = no Superbowls. And that's just players, because we all know BB is the major cog in the machine that is the Patriots.
You talk about the guys who haven't been able to "upseat" their starter. I feel bad for any RB on the Patriots who can't win the starting job.
BRADY. end thread.
