    Kind of hard to avoid when you have a twirling carousel of personnel on the line.

    Is it always? The Pats do not exactly have the greatest OL and they have had a pretty big carrousel of their own this season, but I believe that they're still in it!

    While we are discussing OL, it will be proven that the accelerated downward spiral started with Hardwick's retirement and the abysmal decision to draft and groom Chris Watt as his replacement.

    Reportedly former OL coach, Joe D, was optimistic on Watt and worked out with him pre 2014 draft. If he was indeed responsible for a part of that debacle and finally lost his job just over this one issue alone, he deserved to get the boot.

    I just asses the facts for what they are. Just because they don't all point to the conclusion of "every coach we have/had is complete and utter garbage" doesn't mean I'm going to ignore them.

    This may come as a shock to some people but not all of us plan on resigning our fan-hood if the team moves to LA.

    Well if one would look at the teams who draft Linemen in the first 2 rounds on a regular basis. One could see they play in the playoffs on a regular basis, and their running back is usually in upper tier for yards gained. BUT I have been told we can fix this with free agency.

    Their OL is not "the greatest", but it is decidedly better than ours in terms of talent. Also, they have tons of talent on the defensive side of the ball and some great weapons on the offensive side of the ball. They are still in it primarily because of the talent level of their team coupled with a lack of great teams in the AFC this year. And KC probably should have beaten them last week, but didn't play their best game.

    Regarding KC, I had been on record on here that NE was not going to be a good match for them and in my mind, it wasn't even a contest.

    Don't expect the talent level of the Chargers, whether in SD or LA, to become stacked significantly any time soon. The team is owned, managed and coached by unimpressive people.

    I saw that you made that call in the KC/NE game. You ended up being right.

    That said, I think KC left a ton of points on the field in that game. They were not nearly as sharp as they were against HOU on either side of the ball. I didn't think it had much to do with what NE was doing at all. I would even go so far as to say they played a flat out bad game against NE. Not that it matters, but I think if they had reversed their performances in the HOU and NE games, KC would still be playing.

    Regarding the Chargers, I do not think we can become a playoff team next year and I have serious reservations about the year after that. And that is with good drafting. I think there is a distinct possibility that we will be drafting with a top 10 pick in 2017 even if the team is relatively healthy for the entire season.

    I see no reason to conclude that we will start being smart about the management of our roster in terms of letting players walk, re-signing the right players, signing the right free agents, drafting the right players or using a sound draft pick management strategy.

    So my expectations are pretty low this time around.

    In a couple of decades, the NFL football will most likely be a very different looking game. These losers will have to get used to carrying their loot in wet paper bags! ;)

    Centre is the most important part of the OLine! Hence our line fell apart when it was under pressure

    PATS have much better coaching than the Chargers

    They may want to redo those rankings because the Pats oline performance today was the worst ever
