    After problems with VY and Britt, do we shy away from a guy like Ryan Mallett or Nick Fairley now that we've had some major problems with our 1st rounders.

    I ask this because I think that we will take Locker at 8, who is as high character as they get.

    Absolutely. They have to IMO. The culture of this team needs to be changed in the worst way.

    This is a rhetorical question, right?

    I hope not. Character doesn't win championships. Talent does.

    I'll be the first guy to say that I don't want some thug on our team. Turn the clock back 5-6 years when Ray Lewis was the best defensive player in the league, I wouldn't want him. I hate that douchebag and his character sucks.

    But I don't have a problem with Fairley. I do have a problem with Mallett, but we are as desperate as teams come and if he's there in the second round, I think it'd be a mistake to pass on him.

    Colts won a championship and they dont allow much BS. i think Munchak needs to clean our image up. we are already known for Dirty players, a lot of people said Nick Fairley would be perfect for our dirty defense. Thanks to Hayneworth and Finny and the Towel stomping we got a bad rep.

    Even though I don't want Fairly, having Rocker coaching D-line has got me convinced he won't go Ablerto on us, atleast.

    Obviously you don't want a bunch of scrubs with great character filling up your roster. The key is knowing how to balance talent as well as character in your evaluations. It's fine to take a risk every now and then... as long as you are willing to be honest with yourself about when it might be time to cut ties with that player if he doesn't turn things around in a timely fashion. That's where this team has failed in recent years. We're like the battered wife who keeps accepting "I'm sorry and won't do it again". Yet we get burned time and time again. And by the time we do cut ties it's about 2 seasons too late.

    New England has been the most dominant team of the 2000s and they typically don't put up with bad character guys for very long. They usually don't even draft them to begin with.

    Who cares? I could care less what they do on the field if they win. (Which, obviously, they were lackluster at)

    If they catch Peyton square in the nuts to win the game, thata boy.

    It's off the field that matters. And the only one we have issues with is Britt.

    Character on the field is where the questions are coming from. And honestly who cares about that?

    I'm hoping, praying, they do. Based on track record, there is really no evidence they have learned. Let's just hope that MR can take a page from his best buddy TT in Green Bay and learn how to draft properly.
