Wearing number 55...

Linebacker Junior Seau un-retired himself and signed with The Patriots yesterday.

Hmmm. Interesting.

That's all I've got to say about this right now. I don't think it's a bad thing, but I'm not going to jump up and down with excitement over it either.

ESPN's Len Pasquarelli calls it, 'desperate'. Well, yeah dude. Have you seen who's playing at inside linebacker for the Patriots right now? Chad Brown and Monty Beisel just ain't getting it done at the position and Bruschi is hurt, though he hopefully will be ready for the start of the season. That leaves the Pats pretty thin at inside linebacker, so yeah, The Pats are trying to do something to help improve the team. Wether it's a 'desperate' move or not, it's better than doing nothing.

I don't know if Seau is going to provide the answer that the Pats are looking for, but, if he doesn't, they're no worse than they were before.

At least they are trying to fix the problem, though the real answer is to inject some young blood into the team at the inside LB position. Unfortunately nobody is stepping up, at least not yet...

I liken the signing to Brian Cox back in '01. Seau's intensity and experience might help motivate the youngins much like Cox did in '01. At best, he'll be great in certain situations.

I think you are right Angela. I totally agree!!

Jr even dressed for tonight's game - so who knows maybe he will see some action then?!

In the first series the defensive front did pretty well forcing a fumble, getting a sack and forcing a punt.... Bunta-Cain showing up to play...
