    When was the last time the Patriots had Charlie Batch at quarterback...

It's a fine line in the NFL when it comes to the players and coaching is everything. We wouldn't know that because our coach just downright sucks. He should send a Christmas card to Cowher.
    When was the last time the Steelers had a offensive line protect Ben like the Pats line protexts brady? Probably in his early years. Look how well Ben did then. If you gave Ben the time and protectio as some of the Elites get. The offense would be putting up 27+ a game.

    Never because Belichick would have sent Charlie Batch, Dennis Dixon, Byron Leftwich and every other "never was" backup we have had over the yeas packing years ago. Only our dufus coach keeps this crap on the roster past it's expiration date.

    Explain again why we waived Hoyer and kept an injured Leftwich who we are going to let go after the season anyway? Why not keep Hoyer around and see what the kid has? He has been learning the offense for at least 3 weeks now so there was no reason to keep lefty.

    Are you kidding? The Patriots right now have all sorts of issues on the offensive line and Brady is still putting up 30 a game. Se the difference is our coach allows our QB to run around like a chicken with his head cutoff instead of coaching him up to take what the defense is giving you. He has yet to learn this because Ben knows those type of plays don't make it to ESPN so what would he watch when he gets home?

    I agree this makes no sense at all cutting a guy like Hoyer when he is young and has a lot more upside then either Batch or Leftwich does going forward...

    Ben doesn't deliver the ball quick enough, read a defense well enough, to make the offensive line matter much... in fact, I'd argue that a weaker offensive line actually brings out Ben's elite qualities (improve, throwing on the run, back yard ballin')

    Here's an idea - why don't you go join a Pats board and suck Belichick off there?
