Bill Belichick sends home 4 players

Bill Belichick sent home Randy Moss, Gary Guyton, Adalius Thomas, and Derrick Burgess for showing up late to an 8 AM meeting on Wednesday. I live 10 minutes from Foxboro and I must say the traffic yesterday was horrible with the snow. This was a strong message to the team that the attitude of the team needs to change.

With so many veterans gone from that team this year, Belichick is attempting to police his locker room. The problem here is that in the past the players have policed the locker room. There is no question this is an immature team and it shows on Sundays.

Since Tom brady has been quarterback before this year if the Pats had a lead at halftime they won the game. This year they are losing games when they are leading at halftime. As I have stated before I truly believe the coaching staff and the ownership team made a conscious decision that this was going to be a rebuilding year. It is somewhat like the year 2000 when the Belichick era began. We are not starting from scratch, but the Pats especially on defense are going through growing pains. They are looking more at the 2011 season than this year. This team is probably 2 years away from being similar to the Super Bowl Patriots I remember.
