    Revis is not coming through that door.

    So get it out of your heads.  Every year we fans get rabid and foam at the mouth with the mega stars that are available, and dreaming of seeing the flying Elvis on their heads.  How often has it happened?  Exactly.  And why is that?  Well, allow me to throw some cold water on you and explain it.  BB knows exactly 2, and only 2, ways to shop for free agents. 

    1.  Bargain bin shopping.  When the dust settles after the first couple of days and the feeding frenzy is over, he takes a look at what is left, and goes shopping for "value".  This is his version of Filenes Basement.

    2.  Gamble shopping.  Sometimes there are questionalbe, once mega stars with just enough gas in the tank to maybe get coaxed into reclaiming their glory as a long in the tooth vet, but for relatively safe money and possibly a late draft pick.  This worked with Randy Moss, and backfired horribly with Haynesworth. 

    Rarely has BB ever strayed from this method of shopping.  And while it irks us all to Hades and back, he's managed to give us a playoff caliber team for well over a decade now.  Say what you will about the the Superbowls, Spygate, whatever.  No one has even come close the success BB has in the salary cap era, and it is largely due to the fact that he doesn't go crazy and have to dismantle the team and start from scratch because of bad, over cap spending. 

    So, let's all curb our expectations and start talking about people who probably will end up on the team now that the big names are starting to come off the board.

    Probably not, I honestly don't see how it would be possible.  But hey, stop raining on our parade.  We can dream until he is signed by another team.

    Indy with Manning had 7 consecutive 12+ win seasons (and 9 straight 10+) and then tanked when he was hurt. Maybe its the fact that a truly elite starting QB will win games regardless.

    Re: Revis is not coming through that door.

    agill the lets not go crazy spending comment makes me wonder, though I agree don't go crazy spending why does that prohibit you from spending wisely on starters? If bargain shopping works so well why even bother with FA if you're the Pats? Just spend to the cap floor and not worry about FA's at all every year and close their own doors during that period.

    At the end of the day the question is you can't rely on just draft picks and you can't rely on just FA pickups so has the FA pickups in recent years helped the team or have we taken steps backward with the FA's we picked up vs what we've lost? If the answer is the latter it doesn't matter if you continue to win or not, isn't the end goal to get better not get worse. How much better could we have been if we had better FA pickups? Instead of AFCCG could we be talking SB? And instead of talking about a drop could we be talking about a 5th ring? It seems like people are happy with 3/4 of an apple when we could of had the whole thing and people are saying why are you crying, you got 3/4 of the apple be happy you got that.

    Unless Revis wants to play for a ring (New England, Belichick) at any cost, maybe he's made enough money to keep him comfortable?  I might want to play the Jests two times a year for not paying me.  

    Long shot I know, but I could care less if he doesn't, we have seven draft picks.

    Spending wisely is one of those things that only happens when it works out.  Until then, it falls into caterogy 1 and 2.  BB has spent plenty wise over the years.  And Wozzy touched on one other way BB shops.  And that's for players who are shopping as well.  Ring shopping.  These are the guys who might lop off a substantial amount of what they could make elsewhere in order to have a better chance at getting a ring.  We've had a few of those come through here as well.

    We could do 12 mil which is the going rate for elite CBs. That is if BB resists his urge to dumpster dive and sign a slew of stiffs.

    The problem is that these players are few and far between. And there are multiple options that have just as good if not better SB chances than NE does (Sea, SF, Den, etc.)

    All well and true but the goal is to WIN A SUPERBOWL not field a competitive team every year. You cannot sit by and watch as the main competitor in your conference steals primary players two years in a row further distancing themselves from the pack. I understood this strategy earlier in Brady's career but the time to win is now. It is really unfortunate that the Gronk and Hernandez deals are strapping the Pats salary cap right now.

    OK so what's your point? We already assumed this was just a bunch of window dressing (AKA Smokescreen) to get us off of BB's back while he chastises Caserio for being a dufuss (S hit rolls downhill). As for any of the jags he's bringing in no biggie, we will just watch them land at Logan and leave in the same day. Yes some will sign because let's face it te Patriots play in the AFC Least and are going to be contenders regardless of who leaves.

    Of course it's not gonna happen...BB doesn't work this way...he's not going to trade for him and collect up a 16 million cap hit as a result....he'll wait until he reaches free agency...even then he's not going to pay him nearly what Talib is getting...

    But hope all you want...hope is good...it's soul enriching....

    Logan Ryan...he's our starting CB replacing Talib...bank that!
