Patriots drop Gutierrez

The Patriots have confirmed the signing of Andrew Walter, a story broken by PFT’s fearless leader earlier this evening.

To make room for Walter, the team waived quarterback Matt Gutierrez.

Gutierrez made the Patriots as an undrafted free agent in 2007, and there was some belief he was set to pass Matt Cassel on the depth chart last offseason.

That didn’t happen.  Cassel is now a $63 million man, and Gutierrez is looking for work.

Josh McDaniels and Scott Pioli are two logical suitors; they are always willing to kick the tires on some Patriots castaways.  (And Pioli has waiver preference over Denver.)

Cassel can be assured Gutierrez wouldn’t challenge him this time if they wound up teammates.

    The Pats know what some of us suspect, that Walter can be a decent QB given a legitimate chance.

    I wish Andrew Walter luck. His career was doomed by a terrible offensive line as well as team chemistry during the Art Shell (part II) regime.

    For Ralphie, Hayward giablowjob,Blackglass, and Patriots51, ( all one and the same RALPHIE)
    Please look in the mirror you lame retard(s).
    Only one screen name for me, maybe you need a shrink since its obvious you think its impossible that more than one person cant stand the Cheatriots, their fans, and you.
    News flash::::::: MANY people across this vast country are well aware the Cheatriots cheated and cant stand their fans like you. You emit the perfect example of simple minded, bandwagon hopping, fat wife having, Belicheat ball licking Patriot fan. Goodell stripped that 1st round pick for a reason. No matter how hard you and your alter egos(Mr.mgoo,Hayward Giablowjob, and Blackglass, Patriots51) try to deny it and stick your head in the sand, the fact remains the same: asterisks will always be associated with the Cheatriots Super Bowl games.
    Sorry, but I think youve been outed. Now go grab your fat 2nd cousin, mentally challenged kids, jump in your 1980′s Volvo, run down to your favorite Crab and Chowder place, and drive off the pier into the HAWBAUGH.

    gameday, I think that you posted that exact same stream of retarded consciousness in another PFT story earlier this evening about 10 mins before this cut and paste job.

    What’s up with that? Can’t come up with any fresh and interesting fratboy venom? Surely your colon polyp of a brain can dislodge some sparkling-new hate-filled vomit ( or fresh “Mommy” slurs)?
    You got no game boy.

    ralphie;
    you have no game. Give it up. Same ol Same ol jibbar jabber out of your mouth.
    Blah blah blah, Its impossible that more than one person hates me and my cheating team. IT JUST CANT BE!! Gameday must be using multiple accounts!!!!!
    Your mentally challenged,and you are an idiot.
    But it is cute to watch you come on here and time after time TRY to show you have at least an ounce of intelligence. Problem is, it’s just not working son. BTW what do Patriots fans and tampons have in common?
    THEY ARE BOTH STUCK UP PU$$IES!
    BWAAHAAAHAAAHAAA

    gameday, no fresh hate-filled venom? Did the school nurse take away your Ritalin again? This last one you posted was another retarded cut and paste post from an earlier Pats story. You having issues expressing yourself?
    I think it’s about time that you revert back to the “dark place” that pops up periodically. You know, when your lowlife scumbag frat boy brain gets frustrated and you can’t think of anything else to say (which is quite often obviously) you start hurling those nasty “Mommy” slurs; the irresponsible comeback insult of generations of retarded high school kids.

    @gameday:
    Crab is a West Coast thing. Lobster is East Coast. It should say “lobster and chowder place.” And… if there is an asterisks, it is not different than the Steelers steroids, Broncos and 49ers salary cap cheating, and the many other teams that cheated their way to a title. If you ain’t cheating, you ain’t trying. How many times has Florio pointed out that pretty much every team cheats in their own way. You want to talk about putting your head in the sand? Anyone who can’t face that fact is living in denial. Only time anyone cares about cheating is when a team is a winner. The sad part is all the teams that cheat each season that can’t win shit.

    Dear NBC Sports –
    I was kinda hoping that, with PFT now being affiliated with you guys, the counter-productive, space-wasting, juvenile rantings of guys like “gameday” (and responses thereto) would get moderated out – so that the rest of us could go on with having reasonable, relatively articulate and informed discussions about the NFL.
    Apparently not.
    The content and tone of the comments here probably don’t make a bit of difference to your advertisers either, right?

    @ bernardpollardisanass-
    & So are you!!!
    Not enough gray matter to reason the difference between being the ONLY team found to be doing something ILLEGAL & doing something that was NOT illegal at the time, while all others did as well???
