    Our coaches know what Branch knows in the old playbook, it could be a double edged sword for the Colt.

    No. If the Pats wanted him he would be with them.

     He should have to give back the SB MVP that rightfully belongs to Rodney Harrison anyway

    sorry... but no patriot hof 4 him, win or lose! no way no how is faulk, tedy or troy doing dat.

    bush move. week 5, no prob..



    who cares? the patriots didnt want him and the man should be able to work if he wants to.  its not like he gave secrets to the soviet union in the cold war.. he doesnt know this offense.. he could tell them about the double tight end package from last year i guess.

    So Branch sits at home while the Pats sign Collie 3 times and he's a traitor?  He's a player hoping to play and got a call.

    If you couldn't see my point then there is little hope you would comprehend my explanation either.  Maybe you won't comprehend this.  Hmmm....

    Wow.  I guess you folks don't realize that athletes are simply mercenaries.  It's their job.  When one decides to go pro, the assumption that switching uniforms goes with it.  

    Branch, or any former Patriot who went to other teams, is not some "citizen" of a "nation."  He catches footballs and gets paid for it.   Why he needs the money or the chance to do what he loves is his business.  

    Is BB a "traitor" for releasing Vrabel and Seymour? BB's job - what he gets PAID to do - is to field the best team possible in his Xs and Os and personnel.

    Yeah, I don't know why anyone would expect a player to show loyalty.  Sure, maybe some do, but no team nor fan base deserves it.  Anyone that pays even a little attention to the NFL knows that players can and will get cut in a heartbeat.  Anyone that hangs out on this and other forums knows that fans will turn on you in a heartbeat.  BB is especially "all business" and can be downright cold (ask Tiguan Underwood).  I don't expect any player not under contract to show loyalty.  It's a business.

    The Pats signed Collie long before this game. They signed him because they honestly needed him due to injuries. The Colts won't be using Branch for anything but knowledge and he is all too happy to give it too them. He made  50+ MILLION in his career, so I don't think he is hurting for cash. He doesn't hang out at Hime Depot looking for landscaping work. This ONE game will pay him a few grand ($25) which is next to nothing for a 50+ MILLION dollar player.

    He won't know the Pats playbook, but he knows how Brady thinks, how BB thinks, what there tendencies are, what they might do in certain situations and why, how to get under Bradys' skin, how to burn him etc etc

    His info is valuable or they wouldn't sign him... and that makes him dirt

    No, the Colts aren't our rivals anymore. The rivalary has always been with Seyton Manning, not the Colts.

    Branch to the Colts is not big deal, I'm sure Brady had a laugh with him over it. I never forgave him for 2006 anyway, so i have no stake in the race.

    I think the argument is that the Pats needed a WR and continuiously went to Collie when Branch was sitting at home. Not like they're different players, neither guy can get open or play anywhere but the slot.

     

    If the Patriots want to talk about lotalty, why not reaign Branch instead of Collie the Colt?

    You mean Patriot fans... I haven't read anything where the Patriot orginization said anything in regards to Branch"s "loyalty as it pertains to him signing with the Colts.

    If the guy can nab a few bucks who cares?  If BB thought he could help the Pats he would have signed him.  Whatever insider knowledge he may deliver to the Colts is dated and of little if any use.

    Re: is BRANCH a TRAITOR?

    I just don't understand some fans. It would be one thing if he was only a Patriot for his entire career and they paid and over paid on some contracts to keep him. Or if the Pats offered him the same amount to come back and play and he decided he'd rather the Colts. Then I can understand the disgust towards him but that's not the case. Lets face it the Pats treated him like a business trading him when he earned a new contract. And they certainly weren't knocking on his door this season and decided to go with Collie. He also won't be giving the Colts any insight considering Edelman is the only returning receiver for the Pats and both Ridley and Vereen have further to improved. There is nothing that Branch can give them then maybe tendecies of players, but if they were knowingly working on them in practice after a year wouldn't any knowledge be moot?

    Listen DHB is out for the upcoming game so they needed a depth WR. Branch is a vet who can step in and isn't going to go deer in headlights because it's the playoffs. Also, for Branch it's an extra easy payday (I don't care how much you made in your career extra money is extra money) and another chance to prove you can still play in hopes of getting a camp call next year. It's that simple.

    Why people expect players who get cut, who the teams hold out paying them, and who get traded because they earned their way off the team to remain loyal to laundry when the teams don't remain loyal to them is beyond me.
