In response to Footballexpert45's comment:
Well let's just look at the facts: Wes Welker was replaced by an injury prone Danny Amendola that wasn't half as talented. The GM decided to give Brady rookie WR's one an undrafted FA and the others were drafted in the 2nd rd and 4th, but because of injury issues they had to turn to scrap head players nobody wanted like Collie.
On the defensive side of the ball, he addressed Safety issues with a guy that never saw the field once, Adrian Wilson.
The facts are quite clear that the GM sucks.
Except none of this is true and you are an idiot.
The plan was Gronk #1 weapon. Hernandez #2 weapon. Amendola and Edelman slot guys as #3 and #4. Vereen & Ridley out of the backfield. And let's see if any of these 3 rookie WRs do something to earn #5.
Only a complete idiot would be against that original plan - because that is a BETTER offense than Denver's. Had the original plan been enacted the Patriots would have gone 15 - 1 and would be playing in the SB.
The problem is Hernandez got arrested, Gronk got hurt, Amendola tore his groin, Vereen broke his hand, and all 3 WRs were repeatedly hurt so they didn't progress at all.
The plan was not Austin Collie. The plan was not "scrap heap" - that is just foolish lies that you are making up.
There was a great plan. then life happens, reality happens, and you react the best you can. Desite devastation to the original plan, BB and TB got a very untalented group to the AFCCG.
Stop the bawling.
I notice that no one is crying that we didn't have a run stopping 350 lb nose tackle after Wilfork got hurt. Because it would be stupid to cry over that. How could they acquire another 350lb all pro Nose Tackle mid season? They couldn't - so they made do, the best they could.
Why do you idiots think that they could replace All pro 23 year old TEs that can't be covered? Why do you think that?
Because you are idiots.
