I will just say this. First off, I hope folks have calmed down after the loss. My stance as always has been that the Pats are not so much cheap, but they dont spend wisely and this causes them to be cheap once the bad signings catch up to them.(dead money)
I am going to try and enjoy the season as always so thats why I am positive. Whatever we have is what we have. I will Ride with the team. The frustrating part is hearing uneducated fans pounce on one player because they are too ignorant to learn the game or factor in context and things like that. People came here yesterday and said things they will surely regret in a few weeks. So when Brady is leading this team on a 5 game winning streak and playing great, what will they say? Brady found the fountain of youth?? or...Brady suddenly learned how to play again??
This is Bradys problem. You are supposed to build in the trenches and work inside and then out. We USED to do that. We drafted Seymour, Warren, Wilfork and always had a wealth of defensive line help in the stable. Since those 3, we started taking guys late and trying to be cheap. It hasnt worked. We have all our money tied into one fat guy who is getting old and playing too much and isnt that effective anymore outside of taking up space in the run game.
You are SUPPOSED to PAY your QB(got that right) if he is ELITE and then your # 1 CB! We havent paid there in a while(Ty law) and then D-line and then # 1 WR and then other needed positions
Our money is tied into Brady, Wilfork(gone), Mankins(overated), Gronk(Often injured), Hernadez(in jail) and Mayo(played great sunday, but is a bit overated for his paycheck) and MOST fans think McCourty should get the next big payday?!? and you wonder why we are struggling.
Where is the # 1 WR for this Elite QB? You pay the guy 17 million but give him scraps to throw to? We dont have our payscale right. No way you spend all that money on not one, but TWO Tight ends who werent EVEN UP yet and now a year later neither of them are here to help...smh
Need to get that G.M and you will see results. Hows that 8 million for Logan looking now?
