In response to Not-A-Shot's comment:
I wasn't clear. He took less money for the extension to help the team. $9M for Tom Brady is a joke. What does he get in return? The hurt guy and a bunch of cheap rookies.
That's what I thought too. Look at the blokes Flaco,Rodgers and Manning have to throw to and look at what Brady has. Then compare the defenses that those teams have now and have had. Where is the money going in New England? Look at all the weapons Seattle and Sanfran have on both sides of the ball.
Seattle and San Fran were at the bottom of the league for years and had a lot of high picks. They also got first crack at the waiver wire. They are also not paying alot to their QBs -Yet!. Wait until they have been up there and win a SB - then lets see how they stay around. Its not fair to compare the Pats situation with historical bottom dwellers.
Flacco has no one to throw to now. Rogers - he has a few wrs, a horrible oline and a D ranked near the bottom. Denver was also a near bottom dweller, screwed up their Defense and has a few wr's including Welker - but you know? older players get hurt easier and WW is NFL old and been beaten up alot.
We saw last year a number of rookie and 1st yr qbs do well. Why cannot a wr? TB may have more weapons this year than any other - and that includes 2007 - so lets cool our jets (no pun intended). Our Offense wiil be fine. We will still dazzle the average clubs and the good clubs will be a war. I have seen no one we could have brought in that was a good deal.
How can you feel sorry for Brady? did you see his house? did yoiu know he makes more outside of the Pats, do yuou know how much his wife makes? - He gets all his money, Hallowed the Pats cap flexibility in fhe cap falt years. Pats will not be crippled by teh AH mess. It allows flexibility to make a variety of moves. FA's have a history of being over paid and not working out.
Unless you get top talent at the peak years - it won;t work out. Goping for name players is buying high and selling low.
