    Re: Talib Wants Top Of The Market Deal

    We need Talib. we can cut 2-3 role players and get him (sopoaga, Wilson, conolly) = +7M.

    then cut Vince and try to get Red Bryant !

    as someone said... screw the Depht a little bit !!! we need playmakers... Talib and Bryant are !

    Draft Safety, Center, DT, LB, WR, QB

    Try to trade amendola, keep ;Mallet and let him walk next year (unless someone gives you a 3rd or better)

    Talib is like that family car that ran great around town, but the day you are ready to head out for family vacation the engine dies.

    "top of the market".    What a howl.

    C'mon man. did you watch Talib play this year? if you want to make a car analogy, Talib was like a Masserati that had a flat tire. His injuries were nagging, not chronic nor all too serious. with oput those nagging injuries the guy was in the top 3 discussion for DPOY.

    [/QUOTE]

    I understand your argument but the way I see it the guy has been MIA when the Pats needed him most.  I agree, when healthy, he kicks a_ss; the question is can the Pats count on the guy being healthy (relative, I know) when they need him.

    [/QUOTE]

    are you talking about Gronk or Talib?

    [/QUOTE]


    If the foo sh1ts, rkarp.  Gronk's already signed; Talib isn't.  Not sure Gronk had the same injury history before BB signed him to the longer term deal. 

    [/QUOTE]

    injuries are part of the game, they happen. if a player is playing a physical style, which BB demands from his CB's, injuries will occur. If Gronk is going to be Gronk, injuries will occur.

    Both Dennerd and Talib missed the same amount of games with injury. Arrington should have been ir'd with the groin...its the nature of the position in this defense

    [/QUOTE]

    As opposed to talib on the bench in the biggest games?  Maybe he will make it to half time before he rides the pine.  If I still feel if we don't fix the line it won't matter who we have back there. If we are going to spend that much money spent it on the interior line. Vince may not be back effective and they won't have to throw they'll run it. 

    [/QUOTE]

    the PAts can afford to fix the DL and sign Talib.

    hasnt Talib's absence shown that with out him this defense is not good? combine him with a healthy DL, and this defense could be top 3

    BB has to manage Talib's absences with depth and game planning, which he and Patricia did very well this year, but the last game showed that talent will trump game planning...Pats dont have a talent like Talib on the team.

    they have to sign him, they know it and he knows it 

    [/QUOTE]


    Is there anyone in free agency that can fit the bill? Talib's injury bug; especially during playoffs, is a concern.

    That's the crux of the matter though, isn't it?  If he can't make it to the end of playoffs - then it doesn't help the Patriots much at the end of the day. That fact should be considered when discussing contract/$

    The Pats are not going to pay Talib top market $.

    He will go and look for a deal that may or may not be there. Does another team want to give Talib top $ after 2 seasons in which he could not stay on the field and with a ? history of off the field incidencts?

    The market last year says he will not get the big deal. Maybe he does? If not he will comeback and see what the Pats have to offer.

    c'mon. if you were an agent, havent you caught onto BB's tactics? he doesnt negotiate. he offers what he feels is fair market, and if you dont accept, he will move on (Wes, Edelman, Woody). If you are Talib's agent, of course you negotiate with BB with other offers in hand, knowing how far you can push BB

    Re: Talib Wants Top Of The Market Deal

    I wouldn't pay a player this unreliable top money without incentives.  He needs to be able to stay on the field for that kind of money.

    Also, too many "red flags".  I'm not saying that to be a wise-ass because in this case I thinik it truly applies.

    Just look at the Carolina game when he was being schooled by Steve Smith and how he reacted.  I think we saw the true Talib come out in that game.  

    Not to mention the one that can't get through a playoff game.

    So, what's more important to Talib a this stage of his career:

    #1 - Stay with a winning franchise with an extremely high probability to get to the SB and get paid darn well?

    #2 - Just get paid no matter how successful his new team may or may not be?

    One thing BB has shown is a willingness to sign his own guys that he knows play well in his system. The examples are endless. It is smart business to sign guys who have proven it for you. I think the Talib deal gets done, if not its due to the injuries we have all mentioned. 3 years in a row this guy has not been able to finsish a season on the field. It isn't because BB is cheap like a couple of "fans" on this thread are saying. It's because you have to make smart decisions for your football team.

    Yep, understand that given the relatively short careers of an NFL player. Additionally, there are only a select few who earn enough money in their careers that are "set" for the rest of their lives if they manage that income properly.  Unfortunately, that is a rarity.  Give me just $5M and I'm retired for the rest of my life with how I can invest that for income.

    TB is rich because he has taken the money. 58 million in guaranteed cash in his current contract. TB is just smarter then other QB's(which is why BB drafted him) as Kraft and BB are smarter then most front office's and have been very "Krafty" in how they paid him.

    C'mon. Isnt it "safe" to sat TB has left $30m plus on the table in his career? Look at his deals compared to other QB's. TB also has a very, very rich spouse, and a lucrative career outside of football. And lets face it, his post NFL career will be very bright.

    He can afford to leave money on the table for good publicity, for his team.....Talib is no where near that position. He must cash in now

    So you think Brady could have earned another 30 million if he was an idiot and forced the Pats hand? Well, then he would have become the 2nd highest earning player in NFL history instead of the 3rd. 

    Brady has been paid. We have managed the cap well because of Bill Belichick and his system that he started in Cleveland and has carried it out to make N.E the most well run organization in all of football and perhaps all of sports.

    You are wrong...again.

    TC, this is meaningless info. TB has been paid well for a long time, he earned it. But he still left money on the table

    look at his extension last year...he left $30M on the table just with that contract!! Over the next 4 years Romo will earn $40M more than TB! If TB left, wouldnt he earn the same salary that Denver is paying Peyton?? C'mon, use your head

    So you think Brady could have earned another 30 million if he was an idiot and forced the Pats hand? Well, then he would have become the 2nd highest earning player in NFL history instead of the 3rd. 

    Brady has been paid. We have managed the cap well because of Bill Belichick and his system that he started in Cleveland and has carried it out to make N.E the most well run organization in all of football and perhaps all of sports.

    You are wrong...again.

    TC, try to look at this from a different angle, if you are capable...

    TB was on the books in 2013 and 2014 for $22M with a cap of approx $124M. THat was choking capologist BB... TB extended that contract to an AAV of approx $15M per thru 2017. THats 5 years. If he held out for $20M per, would the PAts have signed him? Would someone else have given him $20M plus on the open market? Thats $25M just on his last contract...

    C'mon, use your head

    He did what every high paid QB is asked to do. There is no difference, he is still getting his 58 million guaranteed but he has done it so that he will receive salary when he is 40. In Brady's case it was a smart decision as his contract until he is 40 is all "guaranteed" Meaning he will actually pocket that money. Base salaries of 7,8, and 9 when he is 38,39,and 40 with his 6 mill per signing bonus added in. Not many QB's are going to make 15 million per year gauranteed when they are 38-40.

    And the article means everything. You are suggesting Brady is the only reason BB can manage the cap well(another shot thinly veiled shot from you) when he has been paid more then any player in NFL history other then Peyton Manning(as Brady just passes Favre with his 10 million dollar check he cashed last month).  He has been paid more then all the other QB's other then PM. He isn't taking less. He's taking guaranteed money.
