    I believe Dolphins WR Taurus Johnson is a Pisces.

    Dean Pees and Belichick haven’t been able to fix the defense for years now … I wonder when they realize that you cannot win without capable corners and capable DEs (arguably, Warren and Green are ok, but Seymour is missing).
    If Belichick’s ego made him trade Seymour, and not resign Ty Law ages ago, maybe he should fix the ego first.

    Could be that, since the Cheatriots didn’t play a quality team until Monday night, and the fact that their defense and O-line sucks, accounts for those myriad missed-assignment issues of which Pees speaks.

    I played against Scirrotto in a 75lb south jersey midget football league in 1995. He played for the West Deptford Eagles and I played for the Clearview Pioneers. It goes without saying they won. I remember this because he was on the same team with my best friend and his cousin(my moms b/f’s son). Me and Scirrotta and my best friend made it to the south jersey allstar team that year lol. My parents still have the little trophy and plack somewhere.
