Comment System Feedback

It’s now been a month since the discontinuation of the Livefyre commenting system and the switch to Wpdiscuz (I probably spelled that wrong). During that month, we have continued to tweak the system in response to what has or has not been working. We understand that you prefer different aspects from Livefyre to those aspects of the current system, and probably vice versa as well, but one thing should be kept in mind:

The current system was always a temporary solution once Livefyre was discontinued.

To that end, we are asking for feedback. Feel free to answer as many of the following points as possible, as well as others that you may think of:

  • What features of the current system do you like? What features do you dislike?
  • What features of Livefyre did you like? What did you dislike?
  • Are there any other features from other comment systems you would like to see implemented?

Email us at admin@patsfootballfans.com with your feedback and suggestions.

Right now, there is no set timeline for establishing a long-term solution to the comments, but we are working on getting something permanent at the soonest, best possible time.

As always, we appreciate your sticking with this community through this technical issue.

You may now return to your scheduled football discussion.

How awesome would it be if we traded Jimmy G for the 49ers 1st round pick, trade down to the panthers pick, then trade down from the panthers pick to the cardinals pick to have multiple 2nd and 3rd round picks? Our picks could be this: Round 1, Pick 13, Round 1, Pick 32, Round 2, Pick 40, Round 2, Pick 64, Round 3, Pick 66, Round 3, Pick 72, Round 3, pick 77, Round 3, Pick 96, Round 3, Pick 103, Round 4, Pick 137, Round 5, Pick 163, Round 5, Pick 183, Round 7, Pick 239.

@DMooreNFL I would not be surprised if the #Patriots have some interest in Ted Ginn. Speedy deep-threat who is dangerous as a KR/PR. Could come cheap.
After a few practices with Ginn, Brady will be in the cell next to Hernandez

What makes Malcolm Butler different from every single 1st rd RFA in the last 10 years?

dp73
Member

Hugo,What do you mean?
Why wouldn’t he be worth a #1 pick especially if it were a lower first round pick?

BoSoxJim
Member
Free agent

If they want a CB with NFL experience, then Bouye is available without having to give up a 1st rounder.

dp73
Member

Because Butler is better. This was Bouye first year as a starter. Butler was a Pro Bowl player last year.

That’s your opinion. Plus, you should know better than to use Pro Bowl selections to measure a player’s worth.

They use it to vote players into the Hall of Fame.

So a popularity contest should drive a GM’s decision to sign a player?

dp73
Member

The Players and Coaches vote on it too. I disagree that it is just a popularity contest.

BoSoxJim
Member
Free agent

Yeah, the players vote strictly by merit. That’s why LeVeon Bell voted Kirk Cousins ahead of Tom Brady on the Top 100 vote.
Give me a break.
DO you think BB gives a crap how many Pro Bowls a player has been selected to when he chooses players?

dp73
Member
Free agent

I think it does matter in what the player is looking for in a contract.

Just because Bell vote that way it doesn’t mean most of the players vote that way.

hugowasmyhomeboy
Member
Free agent

What i mean is this: why are we expecting Butler to be the one guy who moves under a 1st rd tender in modern restricted free agency? The closest example to Butler signing and leaving is John Hutchinson’s move from Seattle to Minnesota under the transition tag back in 2006. This doesn’t happen and I’m curious why we expect it to happen with Butler.

BoSoxJim
Member
Free agent

Not sure teams will be willing to give up a 1st rounder, plus a huge contract to get Butler. Especially in a ridiculously deep CB draft class.

If you could pick 1 player to join (or retain) the Pats from the top 12 FAs on NFL, who would it be? (Assume money isn’t a determining factor)
Jeffery, Campbell, B. Williams, Hightower, Bouye, Gilmore, Zeitler, Peterson, Pryor, Poe, Hankins, D. Jackson.

DHT

Campbell, if they can draft HT’s replacement this year

hugowasmyhomeboy

Hightower, Campbell, or Hankins. That said, that’s a bad top 12 list. Peterson and Poe are part-time players. Even Williams to some extent. And there’s no way Jackson gets a top 12 FA contract either.

Hello Detroit.

Jdog Lemon Head

Good for him though. He has 2 rings so now he has to chase the money before he’s out of the league. Now the downside is he will likely be on 3-4 different franchises when he’s out of the league.

MrLucky
Member
Free agent

Yea I don’t blame him at all. I think he’s a pretty good #2 corner and a very good tackler. Definitely not irreplaceable and could be a guy that his new team regrets signing after a year or two.

hugowasmyhomeboy

Pats aren’t going to blow Chung’s salary out of the water like that. Bad juju to be paying your backups that much over the starters.
Harmon is a starting FS. I see no reason that he should re-sign with the Patriots. His services are fundamentally much more valuable to another team. Oakland, to be precise.

Yeah, Pats have a depth chart-salary hierarchy, they generally don’t make exceptions

If some teams offer Butler +10 million per year, should the Pats match that?

redemption50
Member
Free agent

If it’s not true #1 corner money I don’t see him signing the tender. Needs to be closer to 15m than 10m

Deadsmack #NotDone
Member
Free agent

But Pats will only have to offer him at first, less than 4 million

redemption50
Member
Free agent

Right, he knows that. But if another team wants to steal him away via RFA then the offer has to be big enough to satisfy Butler’s demands and also be large enough that the patriots decline to match. That’s tough to do.

Jdog Lemon Head
Member
Free agent

Teams with that much cap space are typically drafting in the single digits so that’s a lot to give up.

redemption50
Member
Free agent

Very. And this is supposedly a draft that is strong at corner. Hard to give away a top pick AND pay a guy a ton to get him

Deadsmack #NotDone
Member
Free agent

But should the Pats match a +10 million year offer or should they get the 1st round pick?

redemption50
Member
Free agent

If Butler accepts an RFA offer at $10m a year then I would imagine the Patriots match. Why wouldn’t they? As long as the guaranteed money isn’t something crazy. But why would Butler do that at this point?

Because he already has 2 rings, now he will want money.

I read that and wondered if it will impact Reiss. He covers one team and they might be looking to keep people who cover more teams. At the same time, he covers one of the biggest NFL teams and these cutbacks might target sports that do not generate the same revenue as the NFL.

JLStokes

My guess would he would be asked to cover more than one team rather than let go altogether.

hugowasmyhomeboy
Member

Reiss is safe in that he covers the Pats, and gets the probably gets the most eyeballs of any “NFL Nation” writer.
That said, they’ve phased him out a good deal. You wonder if ESPN step back and say, we don’t need to pay a Mike Reiss to write fluff social media-style posts when we have interns who can do it.

Deadsmack #NotDone

Reiss

Closely assess the financial market for Robert Woods: One year after signing restricted free-agent receiver Chris Hogan from Buffalo in a move that paid off handsomely, why not go back to the same well for the second year in a row? Woods is an excellent route runner who could thrive with Tom Brady throwing him the football, just as Hogan has. If the financial market is reasonable, Woods would be the type of signing who isn’t necessarily a top need but is too good to pass up.

Mattsky

I wanted the Patriots to draft him.

Deadsmack #NotDone

Deadsmack #NotDone

If some team signs with Butler an offer sheet and Pats don’t match that offer, after Pats tender him with 1st round, when do the Pats get that 1st round: 2017 or 2018?

Deadsmack #NotDone

Thanks. That means Pats are really confortable in this free agency even with so many players being FA

Well, depends on how things shake out. If they were to lose both DHT and Butler, then things will look much different than they do right now.

Deadsmack #NotDone

redemption50
Member

They would, yes. But then they are basically overhauling their back 7

Deadsmack #NotDone

It can happen, although my prediction is that they will re-sign Hightower, Butler and Harmon. Logan Ryan leaves in free agency for a rich deal.

I also think Branch and Blount stay and Sheard leaves.

I’m undecided with what will happen with Marty and Floyd

Fleming’s situation is interesting. I imagine the Pats will RFA tender him with the original round tender of $1.8m. No reason not to, especially with the cap space they have. And the tender is non-guaranteed. I just wonder if another team might take a shot at him. This year’s crop of OT’s both in FA and the draft looks below avg. Fleming has bounced back from the PS to the roster over his career but he has played both T spots at a passable level (small sample size).

#32 pick should be used on OT; DE, TE, DT, CB or hybrid S/LB. If not just trade down, get more picks.

I’m counting Hightower and Butler will stay

I will be pissed if the Pats waste a 1st round pick on a RB (McCaffrey included). I would rather trade down if the best player available at #32 is a RB
