    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: Salary Cap Space : Now that the thread has focussed on this comment, Given there are probably 20-30 very knowlegable fans, 30-60 fans who occassionally get inspired and a few hundred of varying interest and knowlege on this board AND they mostly all have ties to the NE area and ties to people who know football, I would say the degrees of separation to the inner coaching circle of the PAtriots is 1-2 in a few cases and 3 in many many cases. There has been a lot of crap on this board but also a few very good insights, I think it entirely possible that some ideas here percolate to the team. Why not? If not BB, how about individual players? They tweet don't they, probably have access to social media? It is a very small world today.

    Truthfully some of the football opinions on here are a lot better than you'll get from the local or national media. It makes me pissed when someone just craps on it. Most of us realize we are not the GM/coach/player, it doesn't mean we don't have an opinion and in some cases a very good one.

    Mario Williams- but he'll be franchised. Also a WR. Any suggestions?

    OK,

    8.4 Million...

    What moves are teams actually allowed to make this late in the season?

    Pick up FA's, players on waivers, no doubt.

    I think the PAts could use an impact CB, LB i or o, WR

    I now see the point of your thread; I did not at first.  Recognizing that I don't have the BB master plan to refer to my first 2 priorities would be:

    *re-sign Welker;
    *work something out with Andre Carter, 2 year deal maybe.

    After that, I'd like to see who, if anyone is available as a stud Safety to pair up with Chung.

    Pure speculation on my part, but I believe the $8M+ cap space is so that they can get Welker and some other vets extended, because having that much space also gives them some leeway to sign other team's FAs once the Pats non-tender or release some of their own guys, which happens every offseason.

    Draft a WR high(NO first round pick).... try to get Mario Williams.. sign Carter for sure. 

    Extend Welker.

    Do everything within reason to get Cortalnd Finnegan to shore up the secondary. 

    Draft a safety(Third round).

    Draft a Pass-rusher with our Number 1.

    Trade down our 2nd, of 2nd round picks, to a possible 1st next year?  Just to add a BB touch to my ideas.

    I wonder if this is the year that BB uses that 2nd 1st rounder.

    Re: Salary Cap Space

    Yeah but do the Pats make picks or tradem out again?  I'd like to see them use 3 out the first 4 picks... and trade out the 4th rounder with one of the top 4 to move up into the following years draft...

    Try and get 4 solid players from this draft.  Dline(Pass-Rusher), WR, Safety, CB.. no specific order, but that would be a solid one I think.

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: Salary Cap Space : Wow.  Are you suggesting that he doesn't?  OK, if you are then you are certainly entitled to your opinion.  All of this simply because I express the opinion that BB probably knows better than any fan or group of fans how best to manage the football operation.  Is that idea so offensive that you're taking it personally?  And if I'm reading the last two sentences of your most recent post correctly, thoe only reason one should be posting on here is to second-guess BB?  I disagree with that assertion as well.

    hahaha

    hey there 'fellow' your 'opinion' was a sarcastic comment that you'd 'be sure to e-mail bill what we talk about here'

    if you want to post that garbage when we all enjoy talking here... its what a forum is for... then you might as well not show up

    get off your high horse and show you know a d@mn about the sport while not insulting those here who do... or don't show up at all

    [QUOTE]I think we should resign Waters, Carter , Welker & Mayo. Offer Carter 2 years $8 MIL to $10Mil. Offer Waters 2 Years $6Mil to $9Mil. Wes 3 / $30Mil Mayo is trickier. How about 6 / $45-55Mil 20 Guarenteed. Williams is a nice dream but it Ain't going to happen. Unless he states that he wants out of Houston to play for a ring.
    Posted by looneyman[/QUOTE]

    We have an option to bring Waters back at like 2-3 million I think.

    All those other numbers look great to me.

    Then add Roth (4/14)... either Finnegan at CB (5/30) or a FS like Goldon/Godfrey (5/20) and a WR.. I like Manningham but he will likely be too expensive (like 5/45) and/or stay in NY... so I'd go after Eddie Royal, super fast, of the Bronco's (5/20).

    I am down with all those ideas... my plan exactly... except that Williams will be franchised and/or extended for more than we can afford.

    Finnegan, Goldson, Roth and Eddie Royal in free agency.

    WR Michael Floyd and DE/DT Devon Still in the 1st rd.

    A pass rusher at OLB in rd 2  and a trade for a 1st rd in '13 is ok with me.

    Safety and Center in rd 3 and 4.

    you got it Delonte

    I'd be happy with one solid secondary starter signed in free agency and just using all 6 picks we have in the four rounds they are currently located in.

    but what I really want is 3-4 starters in free agency, and move up and trade some future picks to get talent now and manage to draft 5 guys in the 25-85 range.
