Re: Maybe itâs time for Mr. Kraft to ask for BB for his resignation.

In response to tcal2-'s comment:
BB had an amazing early run with the Patriot’s thanks in large part to the greatness of Tom Brady. But all good things come to an end. I am embarrassed to be a fan and Kraft should be ashamed of what’s going on in his house.
We have all witnessed poor coaching and horrible personal decisions over the past ½ decade. We have now become thug central and the landing spot for low character players.
BB has used up the last of his House Money with me and now I believe it’s time to move in a different direction. Bring on the Haters
RESPONSE: No one has been more critical of BB the GM than I. But...you're grossly over-reacting here. How is this BB's fault? Surely he had Mr. Kraft's blessing when he drafted AH...and signed AH to the huge extension. Who saw this coming? Remember when everyone was singing the praises of AH, after he donated big bucks in honor of Mrs. Kraft, when she passed?
Did anyone foresee O.J. Simpson going off the tracks the way he did?
What other players besides AH have run into trouble with the law? Randy Moss by and large was a good citizen while a Patriot. Ochocinco sucked, but behaved himself while in New England. Aqib Talib has kept his nose clean while a Patriot. Albert Haynesworth, though worthless and lazy, didn't fall afoul of the law while a Patriot, He was released due to poor play. Alfonso Dennard has behaved since he's become a Patriot.
Poor coaching??? Really???
Poor drafting...yes. Poor coaching? Hell no. During the past 5 years, the Patriots have been a flawed team,,,primarily on the defensive side of the ball. Yet, over those years, they've won 11, 10, 14, 13, and 12 games. Sorry...but that's not all Tom Brady's doing. Heck...the Pats won 11 games in 2008 without Brady. Where the team's flaws rear their ugly head has been in the play-offs, against the better teams.
Nonetheless, the past two years, BB has coached his team to the NFL's final 4, before bowing out to better balanced teams.
