I went to Myrtle Beach this weekend, anything happen involving the Patriots??
I love this organization. When I saw they had traded #28 for a first next year and a 4th I was a little surprised as I remember that in 2003 they traded a 1st for a 1st the next year and a 2nd.
I kept wondering why they settled for a 4th. It became clear when they made the trade for Moss. They must have already worked out the deal with Oakland. They knew Oakland wanted a high 4th round pick so thats what they got from SF.
Essentially, they trade their 1st (28) for Randy Moss and a 1st (15 to 20?) in 2008.
also, think of it this way. they traded Branch last year for an extra 1st which allowed them to make this deal. Deion Branch for Randy Moss and a first in 2008.
remember all the experts complaining how they didnt replace Branch,Givens,McGinest and Vinatieri?
How does Randy Moss, Donte Stallworth,Adailus Thomas, and Stephen Gostkowski sound.
And 5 picks in the first 3 rounds in 2008.
I LOVE THIS TEAM
