    ...I watched the Pats @ Eagles game last night and found it extremely entertaining for a pre-season game. Wilhelm played some and did pretty much what he's done lately...nada. Eldra Buckley, whom the Eagles snagged off our practice squad looked sharp. Quick north and south decisions, caught 6 passes and scored twice. He's another one of those tweeners in size...not sure how or why the Eagles can keep him with Westbrook, McCoy and Booker, all similar in size and skill sets.

    Looks like the stinkin Pats nabbed a real steal with their 7th round pick, Kent State QB Julian Edelman. Looks like a Welker clone but faster and bigger with actual QB experience. Caught a boat load of passes, returned a punt for a TD, very impressive :unsure:

    It's a good thing that our cast offs make and play for another team. Intentionally let go or stolen, it shows we are growing in the right direction.:tup:

    I'm glad Matt is gone, we have better ones now.
    Eldra looked good, hope he can make the roster.

    I saw Caldwell, too I think with the Bengals, but no good.

    Huh? I don't get this at all. I would think the concept of a "stolen" player would never be a good thing, either?

    Edelman was very exciting to watch. In a system that relies on smart, versatile players, the amount to which they worked him into the first string offense was very telling. The coaching staff must see something they really like about this kid. Hopefully he'll contribute a lot to the team this year.
