    Re: Interesting take on Pats cap position

    Hello, my name is Rusty and because I read Pats Management Secrets Volume I and I, I not only fully understand the salary cap of the Patriots, but the entire NFL as well. I mean, hey I may not understand what a good defense is...and very specifically what a good corner or safety looks like, but I read dem books!! Or I should say, had my mother read them to me. Now despite the books, I still don't appreciate our quarterback and blame everything on him.

    I put no blame on our 40 million dollar linebacker missing a tackle on Rice at the goal line (right in his arms too...darn), or our first round 260 pound linebacker that had the next shot at him (after he slowed down slightly from Mayo's "attempt"). I put no blame towards our secondary, despite allowing Flacco to have a career day in blazing winds...on the road. I put no blame in our pass rush either...that crap is overrated..I've been telling you all for years!! And Spikes whiffing on tight ends that run right in front of his face during simple pop warner pass paterns?? The warnings were out people! Pass coverage is overrated (just like the pass rush). In fact the whole concept of playing pass defense is a total farce...has been since the salary cap was implemented. Speaking of the cap...doesn't anyone know that we are all lucky to even have NFL football teams in business after the impending doom of the lockout? That was scary as hell - every team in the NFL (except ours) was supposed to go belly up...still don't understand why that never happened...unicorn magic maybe?

    I'll tell you, once we rid ourselves of this Brady bum we will be a well balanced Super Bowl winning team again!! Our pass rush will improve...our coverage too!! Heck Mayo will shed blocks and make tackles on the outside! You'll see! You'll all see...

    we don't have to worry about the cap here very much because belichick does such a great job managing it. for teams like the jets its a different story. belichick is always looking ahead and doesn't do anything to shoot themselves in the foot. the jets on the other hand show no signs that they plan ahead. look at the tebow signing, they signed him without any idea how he would fit into their scheme. he turned out to be a distraction as expected and sat on the bench most of the season. they do a horrible job managing their cap and always struggle to meet it. 

    Belichick is one of the best imo.

    Yes, BB created a formula that is essentially fool proof and creates the opportunity for sustainability.

     



    Yeah moron, the formula is called Brady.

    You know what the problem with the Jets is, dumbo? They have Mark Sanchez and NOT Tom Brady...that's it. You know what the problem is with the Dolphins? They don't have Tom Brady. You know what the problem is in Buffalo? They don't have Tom. Ask these teams why they haven't won anything in ten years and they'll be the first to tell you it's because of Tom Brady...not your dumb, little view on the salary cap. Any fool knows this, except you apparently.

    Parcells is a moron in the cap era. He never did anything good whatsoever in terms of building a team as a GM. He failed with the Jets, Dallas (not all his fault) and Miami.

    Learn your history and state facts.

    The Giants absolutely have not been drafting the same way at all since the 1970s.  The Raiders have, maybe the Cowboys, the Jets and all other poorly run teams who are still crappy.

    BB invented salary allocation under a cap per position and it's worked swimmingly for over a decade.  The salary cap was not in existence when BB or Parcells were in with the NYGs.

    Since Parcells and BB separated only one has proven to master the cap era's dynamics.  The genius himself, BB.  Not debatable anymore.  Christ, the Boston Bruins just won a Cup simply by Chiarelli mirroring what BB does with the Pats. Trade while stock is high, don't let the market play you, develop from within, etc. Parcells drafted low IQ, low character types and his salary allocation was horrendous.  The trade for Brandon Marshall and the money they paid him was an all time debacle for the ages and shows he had no clue.

    Once you read Pats Management Secrets Volume I and II, you'll learn that these concepts started in Cleveland in 1991 once it was well know the salary cap would become a reality in 1993.  The proof is in the pudding.

    NE is the franchise people try to copy, not the Giants. Absolute fact.  It's been corroborated over and over for years now.

     

    I actually think BB once was a cap genuis. When the cap was set up in a way that good players (like Vrabel) would get cut for salary reasons no one was better at finding those "value" guys. I am not sure that he has had the same luck since.

    Who has come in from another team via free agency and really thrived in NE since the days of Seau and the Harrison? He has brought in a handful of big names (Adilius Thomas, Rosie Colvin) and plenty of reclamation projects that flopped (Haynesworth, Ochocinco). Even the 'value' free agents  (Fanene, Gregory) have not really panned out. Lloyd actually did better than most putting up his second best season in terms of reception, third best in terms of yards, sixth best in TDs and a career low in yards per catch.

    So long as you measure success by any metric other than championships the Patriots are the most successful team from 2005-2012. What team has won a Super Bowl using the "Patriot" model if teams like the Steelers and Giants do not use it? They account for half of the Super Bowl titles since 2004. That leaves the Packers, the Saints, the Colts and who ever wins this year.

    ps. The Bruins won a cup because Tim Thomas played out of his mind for two months. If not for half a dozen David Tyree catch type saves they would have been out in the first round versus Montreal.
