Welcome Back Junior Seau

On a scale of 1-10 I think you could put my excitement level for this at about a -8. Nothing against Junior Seau, but you know your defense sucks when your idea of a fix is bringing in a guy that got cut by the Texans in training camp and pulling a 50 year old linebacker with a gheri curl out of retirement.

Seriously, between Teddy Bruschi, Junior Seau, Rodney Harrison, John Lynch, and Jason Varitek I really cannot be antagonized anymore by bringing players in/back just because they are "cagey veterans" and have know-how. I always thought the cold-hearted Patriots were above this, but as the past 3 years have attested they clearly are not.

Because with the Pats we really need to be in a "next year" mode, the only way things can actually improve is to replace almost everybody on the defense except for Seymour, Warren, Wilfork, Mayo, and that undrafted rookie from Georgia Tech, Gary (any relation to Myron?) Guyton. That's the only way folks. I know that Seau and Colvin too are meant to be bandages, but at some point the entire D needs to get overhauled. Even though I have said it one thousand times, the defense is why the Patriots won their first three Super Bowls and have not won the last two.

What's the old saying, "offense wins divisions, defense wins championships?" Well it's something like that anyway and so very true.
