Tue, 4 Sep 2012|
Steve DeOssie joins Sports Tonight for a segment on facts and opinions concerning the Patriots
-- here tied for facts or opinions exported goods clubhouse all right here's the deal gonna give Steve -- line he's gonna post voter to fact. -- it's an opinion and whether that opinion is right or wrong you were dealt with talk about the offensive line. The Patriots offensive line. -- not be a problem this season facts -- things. Fact based on those years pass through those rolling -- -- fair is that is there and Dante Scarnecchia more more than. Think their system here quickly coach open up to this is my concern and you know I don't know squat about playoff. But in the past they've always been very consistent in the middle we have Mankins war and you had -- open. And I know -- get hurt like you did even when you had. Conley stepped up at the center they had Mankins on the left -- Headwaters on the right. Now you're gonna have probably get Conley and a window Laura McDonnell in the -- gonna have two guys in there I had just start. Our main guys that's my concern that weren't in guys flustered when every we had a lot of big ahead waters next to that center. Roy green coping with the profit when he came here and then look into and out you're very good summer with the thought this park yourself. Stephen Neal came from about being. But college wrestler turned into over -- Dolphins alignment. There's a number of guys that we've seen doctors I can work with and it's -- when -- game -- -- Tom Brady back there -- -- collegiate -- Not as -- as protecting Dan Marino was still pretty easy. I think and correct me if I'm wrong I think you can cover for guards I mean you guys can get them help our inside of it is just. You couple pearl left tackle other than getting but I that'd be given the tight -- off his left shoulder that much taking away from the offense the left tackle is a concern this next one. Well that back -- pick in this is less what his final season in New England I have to think that fact. What did -- I think it's an opinion tell you why. Does use -- Tom Brady's go to guy Tom Brady will do we every have to to help Wes -- stay in this there were some. Some thought of train of thought last year that. Early on in the year he was. Targeting me more than usual. Two so I love the pictures the value Wes Welker if Tom Brady has any say which I think he has some say in the situation what's local. Be here for for a few more here but isn't the situation where he catches under balls that posts on other balls ready looks from his franchise that was going to be -- high. Yeah and that's I think the better you're he has. The more unlikely it is that he returns ironically he has forty -- -- added that he could come back he's not gonna he's not been asked for a will be more -- he's not asked for crazy. Guaranteed money he's gonna come in. Number less than the franchise tag would be. Let in this case of the video and the funny way to keep him that would -- factor opinions pictures we'll bring you Deion Branch back because back -- -- -- -- -- kind of effect does not guarantee. Opinion only because. They've seen that nobody's jumping off topic a bit. Signed Deion Branch right now you don't necessary need to sign him after week one. You could sort of leave him in limbo there knowing full well in combat -- time he knows this offense well he's comfortable with Tom -- comfortable with -- -- the Patriots. If it looks like it doesn't look like anybody's really ready to grab him so good you see ourselves works out to see another. The 23 tired them team that they got all works out to see our thing goes. You don't miss -- have to pick up a weak one but I could absolutely see him coming here eventually dealt by. Now they have five receivers you have if you include Slater is that that receiver or they're not gonna give credit sales or whatever right after the great arms so. Some would have to go in that group but I do think that they have thought Deion Branch and that's beat Dallas and at the next one your back. Fourth as it relates to the running game Steven but these bumbling will become a problem that wasn't my health problems last just adjusted to the fact that. It's an opinion because it won't become a problem because that happens to a 35. You won't be seeing the ball that much more so. If you do if you find a way to -- -- the ball but to a three times in the first three or four games. And you can guarantee that these -- -- we've seen in the balled up about soldiers actually opinion. He was a warmup for. It's a long let me ask -- -- -- something you're off the bridge to love it because we are now what cliff -- away from the opening of the NFL season -- last place of referees. In that game tomorrow in new York and in week one you had gotten indication that they might become a go ahead over the weekend it did not my feeling now. I still think bye week to -- how to deal. I think -- because I think it's really going to be that this weekend. You know an analyst and I've been pro -- to the degree that I think the rest. Have a pretty good deal I think -- -- -- -- what they do I think it affected but they need to get the good guys back I think we today at the deals -- right. Left going one week. So there is so there -- get ready for that fight -- on Sunday with Comcast sports net joined Troy Brown Ty Law at myself. To Wallace pregame live coverage presented by Nissan.
