    Who cares if BB was "duped"? The Patriots of old would of let this guy walk and said..oh well, we can coach some undrafted free agent to do what he does...then we'd lose. And it would of been over pennies in NFL terms. We've been doing that crap for years now, it's nice to see a change in philosophy. I hope they keep it rolling, these deals and these types of players have been what's missing from this team. Good.

    For that matter, we may also not want to trust the word of the Redskins' front office. 

    Just before the draft, the Patriots go to great lengths to hide their true intentions.   Everybody knows that the Pats are great drafters, so secrecy and occasional red herrings are important.

    That's because it's true. Compared to all the other 31 teams, they are among the best. Contrary to what many here think, it isn't just Belichick and Brady. There are many great players on this team.

    Just wish the coaches were up to the task of gamepanning these great players into a position of winning the big games year after year.

    Just watched a replay on NFL network of superbowl 36 aginst rams....


    Weis called a double reverse to Patten, and a halfback pass by faulk (which got snuffed)along with a quick strike to Brown from the 3 yard line to start the game. That kind of variety is missing from this teams offense.   You would think your own play history during great games (victories)would be a teaching point for the OCs around here...  wouldn't you..?

    Charlie was great. When we were winning super bowls, when a clutch play was needed, they made it. Since then, whether it was play calling or execution, big plays have been lacking.

    My thoughts exactly.

     

    And let me add this...

    I am tired of people saying that it's proven, teams who make a big splash in FA never win the Super Bowl.  Well, the teams in the past who were making a big splash in FA weren't Super Bowl contentenders the prior year.  So it's interesting this year to see SB contenders making some big signings and to see the Pats do the same.

    halle freaking lujah!

    Re: Props to Browners Agent

    There is just as much a fight between the NFL Network (Rappaport) and ESPN (Schecter) over who was getting the most breaking news coverage right...Schecter was getting all the breaking signings on the first day which irritated his old employer, NFL Network, so I'm sure that lit a fire under Schecter's replacement at NFL Network, Ian Rappaport, to get busy in beating ESPN......

    Either way, from the agent-client perspective, all is fair if both sides are satisfied with the results...only those directly involved know the truth and they have no reason, if things are going well, to tell it. Only those with an axe to grind will put a negative spin on what happened.

    "If not, then the genius was just schooled."

    By schooled you mean he got the players he wanted at a favorable price for the Pats. 

    We're having a good offseason and it's eating you alive.

    What the helll is this thread even about?   That an agent 'schooled' BB??  Really?? No sh_*t? He actually got the better of BB in a contract negotiation? 

    If that really is the case, as Muz points out, the agent can forget about ever having any credibility in Foxboro again. 

    Did the Pats get someone they wanted at a favorable price and terms?  I think so.  The rest of it is horsesh*t.

    we arent even making the 'big splash' that involves spending the most. Bronwer was cheap.. 5.6 AAV... yes Revis was PAID but overall this is BB doing a great job getting Edelman back for TB, beefing up the secondary a ton and now hopefully getting Sanders or Jones...

    just great signings by BB making a huge splash by filling needs! love it!

    And you know what? If they don't win the Super Bowl I won't be upset, because at least as a fan I feel as if they tried...I didn't get that feeling the last five years. And I know we had success, but I thought it was more because of Brady and great coaching/some luck breaks. If we continue like this I think we can stand toe to toe with any of the better playoff teams.

    Re: Props to Browners Agent

    The hypocrisy of the BB rump swabs is a thing to behold.

    If BB plants a story that he's interested in FA "X" when he really isn't in order to drive the price up he gets a standing ovation on the board.  "Did you see how BB schooled team Y?"

    This is just business from the other side of the desk.

    And the idea that BB not dealing with this agent again would be BB's loss, not the agent's.

    If he was brought in to play SS, then yhe Pats got a steal of a deal. If he's another CB, then it was a waste. Dennard can cover much better than Browner, we didn't need to pay someone 6 million for that.
