In response to DeadAhead2's comment:
What a moron. What you don't get is that for every player that plays here and the leaves on a very cheap contract, with some dead money carry over, BB has an answer. This year, it was two rookies and Julian Edelman, all but taking up maybe 3 million total on the books in 2013.
So, again, you're not getting the fact that other NFL teams carry dead money.
Every single NFL team carries dead money. It's as sure as water being wet or you being dumb.
The only reason why you over-dramatize and over-sell this angle is to deflect from Brady's crappy postseasons, so just forget it.
We carried dead money in 2007. NE went undefeated and then Brady started crapping his panties in January and then into February in the SB. He did it again in 2011, 2012 and now this year.
So, it doesn't really matter how much dead money is on the books when you come steamrolling into the postseason and your HOF QB can't play a good game. It just doesn't matter.
Muzwell is 1000x more intelligent than you are. Truth and fact.
It's beyond pee your pants funny to watch you impose this faux intelligence over people who are clearly dozens steps ahead of you on this. Dozens.
Every team carries dead money. BB budgets for it as a built in contigency, similarly to how he sometimes tries to double down on draft picks when he can. The world is an imperfect place, as is signing FAs, drafting players or not knowing if your TE might morph into White Bulger or your HOF QB has the trots on the Wed before the AFC Title game and goes home to sit on the throne all day.
Got it? Good.
The question was why we had 4 million in cap space opposed to Denver's 6.6, I think I answered that pretty well. Denver spent more, they added better players. We didn't spend as much and the players we brought in because they were cheaper, didn't work out, therefore we had to go out and sign more guys who won't be here next year either. It's kind of like a viscous little cycle. Thirteen teams spent more actual money than us, that's good with you, right? Yet our actual ticket prices are the highest in the NFL...it's good business, it sure is. See Kraft is smart, he knows what he is doing even if you don't. You sure you worked in business? Because if you did you'd realize it's no longer about winning around here - it was once, but those days are long gone...now I know you'll say you're just fine with that and it's all Brady's fault anyway, but I expect more than that.
Yesterday Kraft said he could go for it every year if he wanted to, no one is asking for that, but once in a while would be nice.
You love Brandon Lloyd - even compared his numbers to Jerry Rice (lol) - well why wasn't Lloyd here this year? Because he was too expensive! Do you think Lloyd could of helped this team? Honest question, do you? Because you've praised the guy for over a year. Now what would Lloyd of cost this team this year? We could of afforded him. And don't say we released him because he was a head case, it was reported we reached out to him after we cut him to come back at a lower number. It's always about the budget around here. Always. Patriot Place is expensive, have you seen that place? No you haven't. There is vacancy signs on the windows - Monday through Saturdays is a ghost town there - that place is a big reason why we are so concerned with budgets now.
When did I compare Rice's career numbers to Brandon Lloyd? Again, another lie.
Lloyd was not here because he was too expensive. Lloyd was not here because your budddy Brady didn't want him here. Your buddy Brady has this thing that is now well known around the NFL called the "Binky Club".
This means WR FAs have no interest in coming here because they have heard or have seen Brady's beyond irrational behavior when a WR isn't perfect. He shows them up on the field and then jeopardizes possibly winning a game by shunning them. We've seen it time and again.
So, when Brady sits down at the end of the year and demands other bodies in here, BB listens.
Finally, Lloyd was not expensive at all. For a known system player like that, he was a bargain.
Signing bonus - $3 million
Option bonus -- $3 million
Workout bonus -- $100,000 in 2012, $100,000 in 2013 and $100,000 in 2014
Base salaries -- $900,000 (2012), $1.9 million (2013), $2.9 million (2014)
Quick hit -- For a player of Lloyd's caliber, this deal shows how much Lloyd wanted to play in New England. Receivers who aren't as talented as Lloyd were cashing in around the NFL.
All you do is wait until something isn't fantastic with a FA so you can swoop in and then blame BB and the players that is signed or traded for.
If Brady is so good, why is he in need of Pro Bowl or HOF players all around him all the time?
Pats 34-17 going away right home cheese?
That last sentence is one of the most idiotic you have ever written. Pure 12 year old garbage. I am 90% sure you are special needs. In which case your caretaker has to be informed of your situation.
By the way...why would any QB need HOF players around them? To win a fkn Super Bowl idiot. Your lunch pail brigade mentality is over bro. It's 7-10 years past its prime. Times have evolved. You need talent and depth. Major talent at key positions. BB does a great job at the depth. Probably too good. It siphons cap space off from the top end talent pool. Napoleon.
