In response to OlderbutWiser's comment:
LOL....McCourty, Ryan, Harmon, Beauharnais, Harrison,..& Francis, Haslam, Jones...
BB's drafting as a GM is lately fixed upon defensive players from Rutgers, or so it seems, and my opinion is the selection of Rutgers players has been detrimental to the team in terms of quality versus other available players. This lack of foresight as a GM, or whatever one chooses to call it, will cost the Pats wins. Thus, my comment about BB throwing the game (through his evaluation and selection of both draft choices and determining the player roster - his role as GM).
BB has drafted multiple players in one draft from one school in the past (i.e. Florida) but there is a huge difference in the level of competition at Rutgers. He places more trust in his college coaching friends than his team advisors and professional scouts. Kraft needs to let BB coach and hire a GM for the team. Being both HC and GM is just too much for BB.
The Pats are now woeful. Some may claim their woes are due to injuries and that may be so, but then on the other hand there is a lack of depth (competitive talent) at key positions. This weakness has been explained in prior years as the result of their "system" philosophy and acquiring "value" players. Either way it points to a failure in the general management of the team that has eventually caught up to them.
BB's tendency to take players based upon the recommendations of his friends (i.e. Schiano) versus his own scouting reports will cost the team wins. He is his own worst enemy as a GM.
Uhh McCourty is a very good player and the rest are rookies. Time will tell if they pan out or not but to sit there and claim that his "clouded judgement" on Rutgers players has hurt our team is a bit premature.
P.S. - I would suggest changing your name.
