    Lombardi Showing Path to Next Lombardi?

    Is it a coincidence?

    Mike Lombardi comes back to join BB in an active role within the organization and the FA process takes a 180 degree turn.

    Does Revis come on board without Lombardi giving BB the proverbial V-8 head slap?

    How did the conversation go?

    (A) Lombardi:  "Bill, you are the greatest coach of the modern era, but you can't make filet mignon out of ground beef."

    (B) Lombardi: "Bill, it's not your money.  You don't have to clip coupons and always look for the Blue Light Special."

         I seriously doubt that that happened. The Pats have accomplished what they have because Bob Kraft is smart enough to let his football people make all the football decisions...unlike the yahoo in Dallas named Jones. Besides, my guess is that Revis was BB's "Plan B" to Talib all along.

    Was Lombardi with the Patriots when they signed Randy Moss?  Maybe Belichick, while generally reluctant to go all out in the free agent market, is wiling to make a splash when a truly exceptional player is available.

    same here....now hopefully Revis stays healthy. I am suprised Denver signed Talib to so much for so long.

    I'm inclined to agree and this is not the first time that BB has gone after a higher priced FA.  It's just been a couple of years since he's done it.

    Agree.  Pats pounced on Revis within a couple of hours of being released.

    Ahhh, Moss was a trade for a lower draft pick. BB has traded for a number of talented bad boys that came cheap. It's one of his strengths.

    I agree BB should have signed Revis. I said as much to TexasPat before the deed. And I also said BB is much better off putting the money into one elite guy instead of spending it on 4 marginal stiffs.

    Desperate times call for desperate measures.

    It's clear that with a healthy Gronk and a healthy Talib that AFCCG is much closer.

    But the deal here is that both BB and Elway realize the NFC is one step ahead of them. They are pulling out stops to try and close that gap.

    Hate to tell you, this is perfectly consistent with the way the Pats do business. Any time they've had the opportunity to get a "best in the business" player for reasonable money,  They have done it!

    is $12 million reasonable for a CB even the best in the biz? And would Pats have ever done this before ie: chasing Denver who is loading up? No not business as usual at all...i mean u can't even call them cheapskates now and that alone is rare!

    That and also does BB do this without having the details of intimacy with Greg Schiano coaching him last year?  I think its a bit of those 2 plus the fact BB knew he HAD to do something after losing his top free agent AGAIN to Denver. I think the pressure was too much at that point. Either way, glad he is here for now.

    Hopefully Lombardi can convince BB that it's also time to get a couple of half way decent receivers for TB, possibly a good pass rusher...oh yeah, sign Woodyard too

    It could be the Lombardi factor. BB may actually have asked him to assess the situation and listened for a change. Obviously the bringing in Lombardi move is highly unusual.
