In response to ATJ's comment:
What an interesting method of evaluating production vs cost. From a total team perspective New England ranks 2nd only to San Francisco.
Don't know for sure if BB is the best in the business but I don't know of anyone who's better.
long as he has brady and the afc east he sure will be up there!
RESPONSE: Stop it. How good will your beloved Giants be without Eli Manning? As for the NFC East, the division has been mediocre for quite a while. The Giants won two championships because they got healthy, and white hot, at the end of the 2007 and 2011 seasons. Yet...because they played in a lame division, they were able to secure a playoff birth, despite a 9-7 regular season record. The Redskins, up to the coming of RG 3, have sucked. The Eagles imploded after trying to buy a championship, and putting all their hopes in a Michael Vick basket. The Cowboys have floundered in mediocrity under the stewardship of the ultra-egotistical Jerry Jones.
when the first one goes and the second one improves-even from horrendous to average-we will see exactly how well the pats rather "tight-fisted" methods actually work
RESPONSE: Aren't the Giants tight-fisted" as well? Ask Brandon Jacobs, Osi Umenyiora, and Victor Cruz. Aren't the better teams in the league "tight-fisted"? Please name for me a free-spending team that won a championship, in the salary cap era?
jury's still out
RESPONSE: I liked what I saw from Chandler Jones, and was somewhat encouraged by Hightower's play. But, as you say, the jury is still out. Interesting ProFootballFocus article. Apparently, the teams having those players listed seem to concur with the findings in the article.
