    Re: Pats' Passive Off-Season Makes No Sense

    There really were not that many great players out there for the money they commanded.  Would you really want to break the bank for Peppers? Pats have lots of very good young players who will take time to develop and now have a year under their belt.  Don't you think the Pats know their areas of weakness, and that they will address them this season in the draft, or trades, or next round of FA's?  Be patient.

    In Response to Re: Pats' Passive Off-Season Makes No Sense : there is a diffrence then complaing and just stateing.im just stateing they havent improved themselves yet.dosent matter to me how early it is or how much longer it will go.im just stateing at this moment right now the pats have yet filled there weakness on the team.I hear many say the free agency is weak.now is it weak by the players or the positions?for i think there are several players out there that still has lots of talent and can help,and thrive with the pats.now if its lets say pass rushers then yes its very weak there.

    In Response to Re: Pats' Passive Off-Season Makes No Sense :      What a crock!! Who said anything about signing Peppers or Chester Taylor? But, to miss out on a pro-bowl caliber WR who only cost the Ravens a 3rd and 4th rounder (plus the Ravens got a 5th rounder in return), and then to sign the man for roughly $7mil. per season seems reasonable, in an uncapped year. What would have been wrong with bringing Donte' Stallworth back on a $1mil., one year deal? All those moves would have accomplished would be to solve the Pats' weaknesses at WR...allowing the team to focus on the OL/DL/OLB positions in the draft.       Tom Brady is dynamite when given time to throw, and when he has weapons at his disposal. But, he won't be around forever. What are the Pats waiting for? You would think that they would want to emulate their success in 2007.      Incidently..."being in" on a player means nothing if he's not signed.

    LOL!  uncapped year meant nothing....there is a rule out there that states that you can't frontload a contract and the owners said if you way overpay someone it will come back to bite you when they do implement the Cap again.....

    So saying "in an uncapped year" means that you don't know what is going on in the NFL right now....which explains your whining....

    In Response to Re: Pats' Passive Off-Season Makes No Sense :      I really haven't focused yet on the draft yet. I've been pretty disappointed by the Patriots' off-season snooze. Boldin and Moss would have been a dynamite combination.

    Boo-Hoo....WHAAAAAA!!!!  I think that someone wanted a new binki.....get over it, we don't need Boldin.

    Re Taylor ....you spend a paragraph on how Faulk is old...well who else among the FAs would better fit his skill set?  If you want a younger player Taylor is your man. If however you want someone who is far more familiar with the Pats system and costs far less you go with Faulk.  Re - Peppers I agree they will address the pass rushing issue in the draft.  I don't think that requires multiple picks though.  Peppers would have absulutely been pro-active at a big area of need (which you call for no?), and a huge mistake down the road in terms of playing and sal cap even with no cap in 2010.

    Re - Boldin.  He would have been tremedous in 2010.  I think there were two issues one was compensation to AZ.  My guess is BB was 'in' on Boldin until the player compensation went too high.  When Welker gets healthy they would essentially have their two best WR playing similar roles. Whereas Marshall or Fitzgerald (and Moss) are more N-S.  Welker and Boldin are more E-W. ...yet both are tremendous at YAC

    Whenever my mind entertains the notion that the Patriots are slipping, lagging, or missing the NFL boat I think about the owner. Mr. Robert Kraft. Mr. Kraft is the biggest patriots fan of all, he's one of us, he's not about to let our team slip, or miss a beat in the off season.

    No team has won more games then the Patriots since Kraft has taken over this team in 1994. I'm expecting some moves right before and during the draft. Can see them using one of their 2011 #1 picks in a move this year.

    In Response to Re: Pats' Passive Off-Season Makes No Sense :      Dude?? Take another tote, pal...LOL!!!      Name one team that got better thus far? The Baltimore Ravens.  
    Posted by TexasPat3


    ok, so trading a 3rd and a 4th pick 1 player was a good move for 1 position.....adding Stallworth was good as well, resigning Mason was also a good move.....But what about the other 19 positions that are still open?  they have 22 Free agents....I still see many holes.....How again does upgrading 1 position, fill the holes and upgrade the other 19 positions?

    So I will again ask, name me 1 team that has gotten better thus far?

    Do you want me to tell you the answer so you don't make a fool of yourself again?

    At worst it kept them a 10-6 team.....they can get better through free agency and the draft during the rest of the off-season.....

    bruschi's problem is he opens his mouth before he thinks......he has turned into a radio-head.  the Jests downgraded RB and upgraded CB....they have yet to fill the rest of the 14 open positions.

    thus they have not improved their team......

    Wow, Bruschi is pretty dumb.....he is starting to sound like Felger and Mazz.....

    Love Bruschi, but he's clearly playing ESPN talking head now. ESPN directs their people with what to say, hence why they are a laughinstock of sports reporting/talking heads.  Good thing Mike Reiss has not had to compromise.

    Seriously, I you making this stuff up?  Do you really believe everything you just posted?  I love the Pats and I hate the Jets, but I'm not going to base my opinions on my own personal bias.  The Jets have improved dramatically in the offseason, the Pats still have Brady which always makes them competitive.  But you kidding yourself if you don't think the Pats have really hamstrung themselves by not going out and adding quality talent this far into the offseason.  Which is inexcusable when you have Brady at QB, but it wouldn't take much for the Pats to be right on top with a few minor moves here and there.

    Jets improvement?  Lost 700 rushing yards and traded for a questionable CB.

    Who did you want the Pats to get Boldin? Locker room cancer. Peppers? over paid part time player.  What should have they done?
