    It means the Sox have a better GM than the Pats. But the tools here have been told that for years and it has yet to sink in.

    we r like da sox minus a papi. lester = brady, we r good there. Problem is we have no other bonafide stars. riddles could b one but bb sabotages him to bje jabro status. papi got da barry bonds treatment.  gronk could b one, same w/talib. but cant put it together for long stretches. pap at 38 play all da time and dominates as da games get more important. even tb has been worse in big games lately, see last 3 playoff finals. last pap got da equivalent of da tony gonzalez treament from us. st.louis intentionally walked him 3 times. makes da team and lineup better. he's a big game superstar. heck, who's our lackey? a guy who demands da ball + matches up titfortat w/da others' best. perhaps he's our talib, we need more to win like a seattle, denver or even KC!

    LOOK At koji, a guy under radar, paid to b a piece yet is now a rock star. bb used to create star, what happened? we make jabros good, but its a game of GREATNESS! jacoby will b gone as will drew but w/o paying top $, sox will not miss a beat. best combo of star and jabro development! nOw dat tb is no longer an elite star, we have no stars. bring in jared allen, w/be a nice start!

    Sox bought the right players in and the Pats have let the wrong players go and bought the wrong players in. Pats got soft.

    Babe, when the Red Sox signed Napoli. Victorino and Gomes a lot of people were questioning cherington's moves. These are are great clubhouse guys. The problem with the Pats is they are still trying to live off past accomplishments. The league is not going to roll over. These are 2 different types of GM's. One is just a GM and the other has to have total control of everything.

    I got bashed when I wondered out loud if Bill and Robert were secretly hoping the Red Sox lost.  Puts a lot of pressure on the Pats to win a championship, it's been a long time since.

    Last to first in 1 year is remarkable by the Red Sox.  Bill has been trying to get our defense retooled for 5 years now and then when it looks like he has finally done that he notices that he let the offense fall apart.

    Maybe it means Pats have to completely s*ck and not give a rat's patootie about themselves or the franchise or the fans or their record for a couple years before turning things around.  That's how the Sox did it.

    For me, I'll take the steady Pats' approach of contending pretty much every year.

    I must have missed something.  I wasn't aware that there was any kind of correlation between a baseball team's success and a football team's.  Apparently, the rules regarding contracts, player development, coaching, etc. are the same.  I didn't know that.

    you do realize that Papi and Koji became stars due to hard work and the position falling to him (Koji)

    When you roll the dice and it works, you are considered "brilliant".  If it didn't work, all Sox fans would be calling for the Sox' GMs head.

    The dice BB has rolled has worked sometimes, but, not great lately.  Oh how easy it is to be an arm chair QB!!!!

    It means that one league has parity through a cap while another team has quarter of a billion dollar budget teams  playing against teams with 24 million dollar budgets.

    The Sox don't ever have to worry about who they spend money on, they can sign and cut as they please. No consequences, ramifications or risks. The Pats have to be prudent or risk setting the franchise back for a decade.

    Any moron can manage a Baseball team, it takes intelligence to manage an NFL team though.

    SALARY CAP . . .  football is a different animal!

     

    No team has had a decade like the Pats have had in football . . . they are competitive year-in-year-out since BB and Tom have been here . . . celebrate and enjoy what you have as it will not last forever.

    Yeah, he inherited players that lost over 90 games, BB inherited players that didn't have a losing season in 3 years under Carrol that BB went 5-11 with, then he got the luckiest draft pick in the history of the NFL, and was no longer the failed HC from Cleveland but a legend. LMAO
