    On McDaniels' recommendations, BB  brought in Lloyd and Amendola from St. Louis. Neither one of them had worked out so well.

    Lloyd wasn't too bad for the cost and production, but Amendola was a mistake...simple as that.

    I like Amendola but does seem to be injury prone,considering the circumstances around him,I got to wait til after this year to call him a bust. If we can sign Decker and Gronk is healthy, that's as good a recieving core as one else in the NFL

    Oh, Rusty knows.  He just has a hard time admitting when he is wrong.  Wait, let me rephrase.  Rusty can not admit when he is wrong.  He will change directions and try anything and everything to save himself.  That is why he is now comparing Amendola to David Patten.  Let's not forget when he first started talking about Amendola last off season and preseason he was describing Amendola as being the next Troy Brown but even better because he would be a much better weapon in the red zone.  LMAO!  That didn't happen so he changes gears and brings up the David Patten angle.  Amendola finsished with less yards then David Patton and he only had 2 td's. What happened to the next Troy Brown but better in the red zone he was on here so openly talking about?  If the Pats move Amendola he will never hear the end of it from me.

    In retrospect, both were bad decisions.  We've needed both quality and stability at the WR position for a while.  Welker was the one guy we've had that has provided both and we let him walk.  The other guys we've brought in haven't been long-term answers and haven't really been great short-term stop gaps either.  Keeping Welker another year or two and getting a decent replacement for Moss after 2010 would have been a better strategy, I think.

    Amendola is just another black mark on a poor GMs resume.

    Thank God for Tom Brady.

    Tough to play when your torn groin muscle is off the bone?

    Would they have won a championship if they kept WW? All that would have happened differently is Welker would have caught 120 passes and Edelman would have caught 20 or 25.

    If Welker could have prevented Gronk from getting his leg taken out and/or kept VW, Mayo, Spikes, Vollmer and Talib on the field, then yeah he'd have made a difference. Otherwise, no difference.

    Do we wonder why Brady stopped throwing to Amendola late in the season?

    74 catches, 4 TDS and 900 yards as a 4th receiving option didn't work out well?  lol

    I am becoming concerned with not only some fans perceptions of what works and what doesn't at the WR position, but Tom Brady's behind the scenes end-of-season exit interviews and how that affects BB's decisions as GM here.

    Personally, I don't believe all of this story anyway because the cap hit is too much for a WR who played the year with a torn groin and played solid with that kind of an injury.  I am sure calls are made all around the league this time of year, though.  This is just one that will create drama via the anti-BB media.

    The problem really is Brady. Note how it always seems to be the WR who is at fault. The odds of it always being the WR's fault every season is becoming disturbing and painfully obvious that it isn't the WRs fault. Note how it doesn't matter who the receiver is, TE or WR, old or young, etc.  There's always something Brady tries to blame elsewhere other than his own skills at the QB position.

    This whole game of Brady being so demanding is destroying the team.  It's been building for years. He literally has thrown games away by playing favorites and teams seeing that.  He played the victim role when BB had to trade Branch, BB kissed his butt with Moss and Welker and Brady has been whining ever since 2011, even while spoiled.

    It has got to stop.  I am not sure it can. The same thing keeps happening via Brady.



    I would agree with the brady part if it wasn't for the fact none of them but welker were productive after leaving.

     

    again, if brady is destroying the team, then BB is doing so as well by allowing it. Explain to me why BB would allow this?

    Re: BB is admitting it

    I think the Amendola hate club has been too harsh. The guy is a great WR. Elite? No. But great. I hope he is still on the team next year, and I do prefer him over Edelman. I do think the team needs additional vet WR help, and do expect them to sign some.

    I have no issue with a receiving corp of Amendola, Dobson, Gronk, Boyce, Chandler, Hooman, Sanders, KT, Moe, Collie.

    the question is will DA and Gronk be there in the end. If they are, this receiving corps will be fine with TB at the helm.
