I remember him playing for the Patriots a few years ago. Don't know if he did much, I just remember him for his name.

I think they’re good additions.

Hopefully i will remeber this guy for much more than his name when the season starts if he makes the team.

Unfortunately, you may not.............

From the Most Valuable Network (http://patriots.mostvaluablenetwork.com/2005/01/) (Sunday, January 30, 2005): Earthwind Moreland, named after the 1970’s band Earth, Wind and Fire because his mother loved the band at the time, has been very sketchy all season long. Instead of his common “Fire” nickname (Earthwind “Fire” Moreland), I like to call him Earthwind “I don’t look at the ball so I always get called for pass interference” Moreland. Does that sum it up at all?

A guy that has been better than Moreland, has been wide receiver Troy Brown. Yes, wide receiver Troy Brown. Brown, who has covered only slot wide receivers all season long, has been a very sturdy cornerback over the season. He has a knack for getting to the ball but seems to make too much contact–probably because he’s received the same type of contact for 12 seasons. But what surprises me is Brown’s tackling ability; it’s pretty darn good. I don’t think I’ve seen him miss one sure tackle yet over the course of the season.

Ever think about how everybody in the stadium is watching the ball, except the one guy who's supposed to knock it down. :)
