Funny, I just brushed past this line, but that has to be the stupidiest thing written on this site in a while. Pretty bad? The Pats went 14-2 last season. Here are some the "bad" moves managment has made:
- Picking up Danny Woodhead off the scrap heap
- Trading Randy Moss when he was clearly done for a third round pick rather than allow him to stay and bring down the team.
- Signing BJGE as an undrafted free agent
- Drafting McCourty when everyone in the world seemed to think he was a nickelback who could play special teams at most
- Drafting Sebatian Vollmer when everyone thought he was a huge project.
- Drafting Brandon Spikes when many thought he was a bad fit for the system
- Drafting Gronk and Hernandez who completely changed the offense
- Trading for Branch when everyone thought it was stupid
- Trading Maroney away for a fourth round pick and watched him turn into a complete waste in Denver.
I could go on.
