Sun, 14 Oct 2012|
Damon Amendolara joins Mike Felger and Ty Law on Postgame Live to look back at the Patriots recent drafts to see who the Patriots have drafted in the secondary and why they have trouble selecting productive corners and safeties.
About the question marks. About the acquisition of some of his talents -- best seats suites at us. -- -- draft chancellor in Sherman of the fifth round and at the Patriots stratified Patrick chunk of according -- Butler in the all sock. You can -- Jonathan Wilhite and go to Terrence -- I gotta tell you -- you this is an interest in point to bring up you can kill Pete Carroll you want but. He's really assembled that's secondary out there in Seattle he got sure of the fifth round in 2011 chancellor in the fifth round 2010. Earl Thomas with the fourteenth overall pick intent is well. And Brandon Browner comes over from a Canadian Football League career for five seasons on a free agent contract you compare that -- some of the really crappy drafting. Belichick has done the secondary over the last five seasons they think you see just exactly what that type of dire straits the secondaries in the past. Meantime George also -- -- -- the secondaries horrible. The secondary coach needs to be fired the worst backfield league I've seen enough. -- those that are wondering Josh Boyer is is in his first season. As the quarterbacks coach after three years as defensive backs coach this year they split from cornerbacks and safeties or Boyer as the quarters Brian Flores is in his first year working with the safeties all right. You at all I it's a good point that DA brought up Belichick the coach I think is sometimes undermined by a dollar check the GM but Belichick is they -- As a football coach unparalleled in -- one of the greats of all time. As it draft or. I think he's just pretty good but not special I don't think bill is special at the draft when it comes that I think he's really hurt himself in the secondary I don't. Think coach Belichick put the time and effort that he doesn't caution would draft because he can't -- his job. Primarily is to get would ever players that come through that door to make him a better football team a better football player so. Yes they need to address that issue as far as GM Scott Pioli is now in Kansas City which. He's not doing better over there but I think they work well together but you can't put all of don't coach Belichick when it comes to drafting players because. That's not as prominent role well and I also think that -- Bill you know maybe should get some more veterans back there because obviously he is someone who win -- -- your second Terry was very veteran -- and there's nothing that -- -- -- you. That you guys couldn't figure out right if you're Smart experienced football players. Not to look at that secretary it's all kids you know on to don't want to dial up these. Exotic things and make all these adjustments and these kids probably -- -- to do it even. It -- things to come down to a talent. When you have a secondary like this yes they're young they're inexperienced but I think they also lack the talent that we had when Napoli. In that -- is gonna take some maturity is gonna take some growing book. Right now they don't have they don't they don't have one veteran out there that can show -- the way -- shoulder in the leadership skills that it take. To bring everybody together so. They're just -- cost of war from a talent standpoint and leadership --
