“Logan Mankins is everything we would ever want in a football player. It is hard to imagine a better player at his position, a tougher competitor or a person to represent our program. He is one of the all-time great Patriots and the best guard I ever coached. Logan brought a quiet but unmistakable presence and leadership that will be impossible to duplicate. Unfortunately, this is the time of year when difficult decisions have to be made - and this is one of the most difficult we will ever make - but like every other decision it was made for what we feel is in the best interests of the team.”—Of course Hoodie gushes about Mankins after he trades him. Much love for the big guy, though. Pretty much all that need be said. He’ll be missed. Might not be twilighting in career, but best days may be behind him. Still a force, a presence, a great Patriot. Pats added alotta depth at guard, youthful beef (great band or porn name?) and I think they’ll be OK there. Remember how well Josh Kline played in Baltimore last December? I’ll take a healthy serving of that and some Cannon fire, too. And hey, if Tim Wright can come in, learn the system, be the good kind of Rutgers, and be 75% of Hernando, plus not be murdery? It’s a win. A surprise win. A bittersweet win. But perhaps a necessary win for the Pats.
I’m gonna go have a 16 ozer for Mankins. You guys GFY, and let’s go Pats!

As we try to assemble another fun, unique, ridiculous NFL Draft video for this year I was going to post all of the previous draft videos we’ve made…and then I saw my god buddy Papa Ganda, aka @PatsPropaganda put all our draft videos into one convenient, tidy little blog entry. I got a lot of love for that guy. Standing around in the rain all day by Radio City? Not so much? Talking footbal and reppin’ for all Patskind? YOU KNOW IT?
We’ll be bringing you the best of what we got sometime Friday I believe, with hopefully more tidbits and updates along the way. Check my Facebook and twittah (@FitzyGFY) for more madness and action. And as always - KEEP CALM AND BRADY ON.
