    Re: Prepare yourself now, BB wont use either of his 1st round picks

    of course Cannon was a 5th rounder (cancer), Mallet a 3rd rounder (they should have had him take Brady's place) Vereen and Ridley behind BJGE and Woody, Carter on the PS, Smith a 6th rounder who was a numbers victime.  If you think 6th and 7th rounders should be starters, please stay as a DRAFT GURU, because your knowledge of the real football world is sadly lacking.


    But in your world every draft pick has to start and contribute immediately?


    I will also stipulate that 2006-2008 were awful draft classes.

    Also glad to see you found the enter key.  It improves readability but the content is unfortunately unchanged

    I suggest you read the prior parts of my thread which were not focused at St Eli but at an assertion made by butch dike

    For all of you criticizing the 2009 and 2010 defensive drafts go back and look and tell me besides Clay Matthews which defensive player you would have drafted where the Patriots picked.  I'm even giving you the ability to judge these players on what they've done at the NFL level.  Go ahead and name me the defensive superstars you would have drafted those seasons.  Connor Barwin is probably the best name on the list.  You people who criticize BB act like there are all these defensive superstars he refuses to draft, but name them.  Other than Clay Matthews there is nobody that would have been there at the Patriots pick that would qualify as a game changing player.

    i think this is the best example of why BB does what he does. The game changer defensive studs ( and o guys too) , as a rule just arent there at the end of the first round.( Seymour early after first year 5-11, and Wilfork who dropped). BB sees 2 boards, the best guy he needs/wants on his (at a " value ") and the best guy up... chances are if it is not a match for us ..it is for someone else ...SO why not make a deal
    regarding Wilfork he was THAT guy ( I want to say he might have jumped a couple of spots)and if he just fell  then he pulled the trigger !

    Early picks  Seymour 6, Mayo 10  it is a lot easier up at that end!

    In Response to Re: Prepare yourself now, BB wont use either of his 1st round picks : Spot on Laz. Belichick sets himself apart from the rest acquiring draft picks. It's the actual picks themselves(#33 and onwards) that haven't always measured up. Two 1sts, two 2nds, two 3rds last year and two 1sts, two 2nds this year is sheer genius. He just needs to hit on a couple of these. Even so, he got the team one big play away from another championship. I can somewhat understand how people here are getting impatient.

         The three gut wrenching losses...to the Colts in AFC title game in 2006, the Giants in SB 42, and again to the Giants in SB 46, are the cause for the BB as a GM negativity. Can you imagine the difference in fan attitude if the Pats had won any two of these three games?

    My hair hurts.  BB has kept the team competitive for the SB every year since 2001, which is exactly what Pats ownership wants, by the way, and he has done so while:
    *remaining under but spending to the cap;
    *having assigned draft positions late in each round;
    *overcoming injuries to key players (yes, I consider 2008 SB competitive at 11-5).

    Do I think that everyone who criticizes BB's performance as a GM is a troll or an idiot?  Of course not; I simply disagree with them.

    Of that I have no doubt. Even just one of the Giants games, especially 2007. We would have milked that one for a decade.
