In Response to Re: CNNSI headline: Pats flirting with danger regarding Brady contract strategy. And more. : I don't care if he has an Ivy League degree or not. He isn't making much sense here. To leave out the CBA aspect, playing dumb, to write a column, is LAZY journalism. Period. That's what these boneheads do. Leave out facts and contexts to "do" their job. FAIL So, no, it appears he isn't quite capable of analyzing this topic rationally and very thoroughly, now is he? I expect names like Manning, Revis, and whoever else to be in the same column as this one analyzing WHY VERY LARGE contracts aren't slam dunks right now. Sad when I know the answer, as do others here, yet Ross Tucker and his Ivy League degree do not. What drives me nuts about how NE is treated differently by the media is how NE has a FANTASTIC track record of money management and sustainability with approach contracts, whether it's Tom Brady's or not, yet this is somehow ignored within his premise. FAIL

The good news (for you) is that you obviously value your opinion - nothing wrong with a little self-assuredness. The bad news (for you) is that others are no less legitimized (and, in fact, might be considered more credible) for having an opinion that differs from yours.
Apparently you do not read well, because Tucker's article does bring up the 30% rule that is a part of the CBA issue. In fact, it is the very first item of his article. Forgive me if you thought your rant might get by on "heartfelt passion" rather than facts, but homey don't play that.
That facts are that no one is currently hearing anything from anyone within the Patriots organization regarding any effort currently being made to get anything done where Tom Brady is concerned. Why? How does the Patriots typical silent M.O. play here? How does silence improve the situation for the pats or Tom Brady? Its not as if other teams can court him. Even if the Pats publicly say "its complicated", then the world knows they are trying to figure it out. Tucker commented on this, as well.
Where Manning and Revis are concerned (since you brought them up), both of their orgs have gone on public record very recently saying that they are working on the contracts for these guys but due to the CBA issue there is a great deal of uncertainty with them. What have the pats said - Nada. And that is the rub.
As for the pats cap skills, are you really suggesting that the pats intend to play "that kind of ball" with Brady? Really? Tucker brought this up as well.
Look, no one says you are not entitled to your opinion. But if you are going to comment on Tucker's, you probably should dig into it a little more so that you are confident that you know what he said. Otherwise, it makes you look unintelligent (like here).
