Default pat's poo poo poteat

http://www.patriots.com/news/index.c...=20811&pcid=41

Cornerback Hank Poteat was with the team during the last two seasons after being signed in January of 2005. He came in to help the Patriots secondary, which suffered a rash of injuries before the team won Super Bowl XXXIX. He collected two solo tackles and batted down a Ben Roethlisberger pass intended for Hines Ward in the AFC championship that year.

?Hank?s a great kid. He?s a good player to coach,? said Belichick this morning. ?He works hard. He made some big plays for us, played in some big games. You know, I have no issues at all with Hank. He worked hard in the offseason program. We just felt like there were some players ahead of him today, and that?s why we did that. I have total respect for Hank, his work ethic, his toughness, his competitiveness. It was a tough one this morning.?

Poteat was released on Aug. 30 of 2005, but ultimately re-signed to play in 10 games last season, recording a career-high 24 tackles including his first career sack.

Righhhhtttt.

So other than taking the opportunity of putting 'poo-poo' in a subject title what was the point of this post?

I've mentioned the guy myself in passing another guy who excels in the role the Patriots have given him - a real sure tackler for a CB.

The Patriots didn't bother with swagger to start this NFL season; they went straight to defiant. Either you're one of them or you're about to get crushed.

No alliteral motive just posting in the "general football" section. Passing along information on an x-steeler. I was trying to get the "P" thing going on.

Belijerk couldn't reach Romeo or Charlie Weis to ask them to make that decision for him, so Hank got the boot.

I liked Hank when he was a Steeler.

No-one said he was a superstar - just a guy who the best coach in football spotted a role for at the triple world champion New England Patriots.

Im sure they had to unteach him some stuff but he came through....

Seeing as we still have a bit more than a week until real football starts, here's a philosophical question to ponder:
Would Troy Edwards burn Hank Poteat, or would Hank shut him down?
Or is it not even worth pondering for most of you?

whats funny about this is that your head is so big you actually believe it. fact of the matter is that the pats coach loves a cowher educated player and has confidence in them playing the right way. no team has more ex steelers. no team scouts the steelers more than the pats.

the pats coach is smart enough to know that if youre gonna mold youre team in the image of the greatest football franchise out there you need some of the same ingredients. he realized this going back to his browns days.

theres a reason the heralded 2 time defensive mastermind of the giants 2 superbowl runs could never beat a no name, up and comer like cowher, with the browns. the browns werent molded in the steelers image.

instead of kraft giving his ring to v. putin, he shouldve just handed it over to dan rooney.
