I'm shocked the Broncos are THIS aggressive.
I'm not discouraged...yet. There is still a TON of great talent available.
My one hope is that after Denver, going to the SB, and now doing this...Kraft and Belichick's hand is as close to being forced as it EVER has.
If they do nothing as Denver further distances themselves from the AFC pack...well, for what I believe will be the first time ever, I don't think the defenders (myself include) will have much to say.
I defended the Milloy move, backed sticking with Brady, defended Spygate, and have supported trading back in drafts, and going the 'value' route in general. It has worked for the most part.
But recently...too many subtractions without the additions, and if there is ONE player that, as a Pts fan, I do NOT want to succeed, it's Peyton Manning. I'm comfortable with Brady being hands down, the better career QB.
I have softened on my thinking...and reckognized that, to a degree, it is worth betting heavy while Brady is still around. Hence, I've been beating the Revis drum for over a week, and I still can't believe more people aren't picking up on what Florio said. It's a moot point now, as he's likely about to be released.
NE used to be the place to come and win. Denver is now the place others players seem to view in that light given their recent spending. Denver is also more fun to play for, they let players have more of a personality. 2 Elite level players in back-to-back years have left NE in favor of Denver.
That's a kick to the nuts.
