In response to rkarp's comment:
but why did you state Abes is playing for $4M per year, when he is playing for $1.5M this year, and will recieve $500K next year?
What does that have to do with Carter, Ellis or anyone Mr Deflection?
That was his asking price at the time FA started and BB passed. He ended up getting what he got in Arizona.
You want BB to chase down one trick ponies who have no interest in being a sub rusher or run responsibilities?
I don't. Freeney was another he wasn't interested in, I am sure once he heard what he wanted.
At the end of the day, I find it beyond comical BB just passed on Reed because he sniffed out an ego and Reed has no intentions of coming off the bench in his final years to be used in a better way.
The Jets are too stupid and desperate and Anonymis, the troll, somehow sets up this thread for you miserable, balding, fat turds to come on here and start laying your laundry lists of FA moves that had no effect at all on why Brady melted down with Welkie in SB 46.
That's what I know.
We're 7-2, will win the division and any non-FA move or FA move BB has made in the last 3 or 4 seasons will have very little to do with us winning a SB. It will be about Brady and the base BB has built through the draft.
LAST TIME MORONS:
BB would prefer to build with a veteran group, but he wisely changed that recipe going into the lockout:
1. He had to.
2. He realized it would be what allows him to field quality teams not just for 2 years, but for 5+ years off the lockout.
I could see if his drafts and development of the fringe players has been poor, but it hasn't been. In fact, it's been quite opposite.
Beyond pathetic at this point for you idiots to whine and focus on non-sensical players who weren't good enough to be here.
I just watched Ed Reed play 59 snaps vs EJ Manuel, BB sniffs out the ego and passes, and somehow vets don't want to come here?
Anonymis either rides a short bus or is a child.
so you saying Abes is making $4M this year, is really you saying that was his asking price when he was negotiating with BB earlier in the year? Is this what BB told you?
If Abes, as all vets in your opinion, signed with Ariz for $1.5M and not $4M as you said, did he give BB and the Pats a last call at $1.5M? He signed well before Carter...
