In response to TexasPat's comment:Typical TPMMQB style. Putting words in my mouth assigning me thoughts I don't have.
Always look forward to your hindsight analysis. Thanks for the comedy.
RESPONSE: "Hindsight analysis"??? Be careful, Pinocchio. You know what happens with that nose of yours when you lie. Pinnochio, we both know that I criticized this idiotic Colts trade from the get-go. What's hilarious is that you are in denial...as you are unable to admit that Grigson made a huge mistake in trading Indy's #1 pick this year to Cleveland for the bust that is Trent Richardson.
Hey TP, do you think the pats would have taken Brady in the 6th if they knew what they know now?
RESPONSE: ABSOLUTELY!!! I can safely say that the Pats are delighted with their use of their 6th round pick in 2000. Do you think that Indy fans are equally as pleased seeing their team's #1 pick given away for an underachieving stiff of a RB?
Do you think the pats would have paid Hernandez $40 mill if they knew then what they know now. Do you think Belichick's job is in jeopardy for such egregious mistakes?
RESPONSE: Unlike Trent Richardson, AH proved his worth with his production on the field. Sure, in hindsight, the Pats made a mistake paying AH all that money. But, unlike you, I can freely my team's errors. In fact, no one on this board has been a greater critic of BB the GM than I.
The difference between BB and Grigson is that BB is a fair GM, but perhaps the greatest coach in NFL history. Grigson is merely a fair GM. So, another major mistake like the Richardson gaffe could get him fired.
What about going for it on 4th and 2 or having Gronkowski block on PAT's? Surely coaches are paid to be right too, right? LOL. Belichick must be sweatin heavy based on your keen MMQB'ing.
RESPONSE: Desperation...LOL!!! What do these things have to do with the Richardson gaffe? How typical of you, Gomez...trying to shift the focus of our little discussion. Gomez, it is not I engaging in hindsight. It is you!
Now go run off and help your daughter Wednesday play with her pet spiders. Who knows...if you're really good, maybe Morticia will start speaking French to you...LOL!!!!
whoops - touched a nerve there.
I don't think your feelings about the Richardson trade were quite as passionate as they are today. That's hindsight my friend - the place where you reside.
RESPONSE: Liar...LOL!!! I said that it was a bad deal from the get-go, and you know it.
Not at all. I feel quite comfortable in my opinion that your feelings about the deal have strengthened in hindsight.
I somehow don't think the pats would have waited until the 6th to take brady if they knew what they know now.
RESPONSE: That's both speculation and hindsight, Gomez.
Oh - you have no problem with speculation TPMMQB. The hindsight is simply turnabout. See how easy it is? I suppose that's why you do it.
And I don't think the pats would have extended Hernandez if they knew what they know now.
Yes, Hindsight is a magnificent thing, isn't it TPMMQB?
As you said, GM's are paid to be right. Right MMQBTP? Is Belichick's job in jeopardy? LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!
RESPONSE: If BB were the GM alone, he would likely have been fired long ago. But, he's the best coach of all-time...and has a tremendous capacity for making "lemonaide out of lemons".
Come now TPMMQB, you don't think anyone in that organization beyond the Krafts have any say on personnel, do you TPMMQB? And you don't think Kraft questions or has input in Belichick's personnel decisions except possibly from a monetary basis do you TPMMQB?
He's not been fired from that position. Was Chad Jackson Lemonade or a lemon first. Seems to me Billy picked lemonade but found out he had a lemon. What about Chad Ochocinco or Adalius Thomas, or Albert Haynesworth? Aaron Hernandez anyone? Ras I Dowling? Patrick Chung, Ron Brace, and Darius Butler were quality picks for BB. Was Alfonzo Dennard a lemon or lemonade before or after he hit that cop?
For a guy that thinks a GM is paid to be right, that sure is a lot of wrong listed above - but hey what good is a position if not to backpedal a bit? right MMQBTP or is it TPMMQB?
Grigson's won exec of the year in 50% of the years he's been GM. How about Belichick?
RESPONSE Grigson never should have won that award. The Colts turnaround was due to the brilliance of their "Suck for Luck" policy in 2011...which Grigson had nothing to do with.
Whoops - there's an example of your hindsight not working. He should have because he did. Grigson turned over 70% of the roster that first year with players that could handle both the difficulty of learning entirely new offensive and defensive systems with new coaches while enduring the turmoil that goes with a coach who is battling cancer, but don't let the facts get in the way your bias and poorly perceived opinion.
Does Belichick have the same coach of the year record for his years as a head coach? LOL!!!!!
RESPONSE: As far as I'm concerned, BB is the coach of the year every year. But, as we both know, he is over-looked because results from him are expected.
Of course you are you homer. You don't want to give Grigson credit for his GM work including taking Luck, but were willing to give Elway credit for taking Manning, and are happy to overlook the fact Belichick has always had Brady. Take off the goggles my friend.
I bring up other subjects simply to prove wrong your stupid point about being paid to be right. No one can be right all of the time. Heck, even with the benefit of hindsight you are still frequently wrong, and that's moronic.
RESPONSE: Stupid point? So...are you saying that GMs are paid to get it wrong?? Talk about stupid...LOL!!!
Thanks for the Dumb and Dumber comment of the day. GM's are paid to field personnel that can produce successful seasons. Evaluating that personnel is difficult and frequently wrong. See the list of past pats players above as an example.
Gomez...I've thoroughly enjoyed busting your chops. Quit now, before you're further humiliated...LOL!!!
And now for my best MMQBTP interpretation - You're delusional. You couldn't bust Lamb Chop the puppet. LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
DING DING! Winner by a knockout - Me
