Can someone tell me, other than Parcells glowing praise for McQ, what makes everyone think he is the answer if Flo goes down? The guy was borderline practice squad material when he arrived. He was good enough in camp to make it a risk to put him on the PS, but that doesn't punch his ticket to Canton.
Just because the Pats got lucky with a 6th round pick doesn;t mean all 6th round picks are good. Would you be for trading our #22 for anyone else's 6th round pick?
What I am saying is what round you are drafted does not limit your talents or potential for one day being a game day starter.
I love how people wanna replace unproven players with OTHER unproven players.
Its sick how quickly some of you want to make changes.
There is this thing called development, you may have heard of it.
Not every player can come into the league a dominate it... it could take years to strengthen themselves, practice the skills, and learn the systems.
Give these guys (McQ, Watkins, JJ, our DLine, etc.) some time.
