I loved the guy. He was tough. I was simply saying record can be deceiving.my contention was with a poster who claimed New England(by virtue of their loss to Miami) could not possibly a playoff team. And it's not with a certain publication or writer, there is a general consensus that the Patriots will be in the playoffs this year. Peter King is still a moron but he may be right here.
As far as Tua goes, the Jay Fiedler comp is way off-base imo. That guy really did have a weak arm and was a slow thinker to boot. Tua has a quick mind, a quicker release and while not a Howitzer, a stronger arm. I will say this- not many QBs have the grit of Jay Fiedler and he will always be a favorite of mine for that.
