    I expected some Red Sox overflow here today, not Pats.

    What are the Revs up to?

    BB runs the Pats.  He should get an A+ every year.

    In response to RidingWithTheKingII's comment:

    Anyone have that dumb ESPN Insider thing? Just curious what else is his analysis, but I agree with this so far, even if I'd go more like a B+ than just a B.

     

    The grading system factors in the following:

    1. General activity. A team is graded lower if it doesn't have any moves to analyze (e.g. Raiders). The highest grades go to teams that Williamson feels improved their rosters the most from the time free agency began, and how well the teams set themselves up for the draft.

    2. Track record. Williamson acknowledges that he gives the benefit of the doubt to those with a solid track record.

    3. Overspending a factor. Value is important in free agency, and Williamson docks some teams for overspending.

    4. Can't overlook retention. Re-signings can be as important as signing players from other teams, and Williamson also factors that into the mix.

     

    With this as a foundation, Williamson assigns the Patriots a "B" grade.

    "The [Wes] Welker-for-[Danny] Amendola swap gets all the headlines, but New England did a very nice job reinforcing its secondary and bringing back [Sebastian] Vollmer, who I think is the best right tackle in the league. That was a fantastic move that didn't get the publicity it deserved, while [Will] Svitek now ranks as one of the better swing tackles in the league for depth," Williamson writes.




    For once you post something that makes sense. But, it's not hockey.

    And I don't care.
