    Which team got a better deal? 3rd for Boldin or 3rd for Burgess? Actually it was a 3rd and 5th for Burgess, I believe.

    Your a jets fan in disguise. Get off the forum. One of the posters exposed you by showing you ballwash the jets during the AFCCG and calling Mark Sanchez "heroic".

    All your posts are negative trash, GFY. :D

    Big difference. Boldin wanted a new contract for a start. And Burgess, who looked good down the stretch, might well be back.

    But keep on trolling.

    I don't remember ballwashing anyone let alone the jets. I was rooting for them in the CG, as I don't like the colts. That makes me a jets "fan"? LOL.

    He was heroic compared to the dog crap people on here said he was.

    I won't get off the forum, you get off. I'm trying to help the team through cold hearted logic, you are just being a "fan".:rocker:

    You need to apply for an actual position with the organisation.

    I'd hate to think you were spending your time 'helping the team' on a message board when you could have much better access to Belichick himself by being part of the coaching team.

    You should expect some resistance to your righteous 'cold hearted logic', though.

    Belichick has something of a reputation as an overly emotional softie in league circles.

    What does it matter? The Pats couldn't get Boldin because Boldin wasn't interested in being an one year rental. He could have made the trade not go through since he knew the Ravens were willing to give him an extension and the Pats weren't. Two very different situations.

    People need to stop these ridiculous comparisons. If the issues wasn't the extension, Boldin might be a Patriot right now. The Pats were not going to trade for a guy who might nor report because he didn't get a new deal.

    Huh? Did you miss the bit where the Ravens signed him to a 4 year $28M contract?

    Burgess will want a new contract, but it won't be anywhere near what Boldin wants.

    Umm, Boldin absolutely got an extension. Or dd the Ravens give Boldin an extra $25 million in a per diem? You Jets fans masquerading as Pats fans really need to keep up with current events.

    Boldin isn't a Patriot right now because they didn't want to give him an extension in the trade. With multipe teams bidding on him, he has that leverage to steer where he wants to go.

    As for Burgess, he wanted out of Oakland. He was happy to come here whether it was with a new deal or not.

    Well, at last you trolls admit you ignore the facts to bash the Patriots. Most rational people here actually listen to the facts before we decide to bash or not, but as you admit, facts just get in your way to bash.

    Here are some facts for you:

    - Multiple teams were bidding on Boldin
    - The Pats appeared to be the only team interested in Burgess
    - Chris Mortensen reported the Pats wanted Boldin to play on his current contract
    - The Ravens gave Boldin a very lucrative extension

    Take away those facts and Belichick thought Burgess was worth more than Boldin. But please, don't let the facts get in the way of a good bashing. Any intelligent person knows that if Belichick had a 3rd rounder and could trade it for Boldin for one year or Burgess for one year, he would have picked Boldin. That isn't what his options were.

    Ah now that we're talking facts, truth and honesty then give me your honest opinion about trading our 3rd for Burgess ? Was it a good move or a not so good move?, I'll put it into as basic a question as possible. We await your honest response ?

    This Burgess thing has gotten stupid. The trade didn't work out, we'd all love to have that draft pick back right now. But it was just before the season, we had no pass rush and we were trying to make the team better with what looked like a proven pass rusher.

    Would I make that trade again now ? No.
    Would I make that trade again back in August ? Yes.

    Well that is a good point. We should have waited for him to be cut or give up a 5th, but not a 3rd. 3rd rounders are gold.

    and burgess sucks so why did we get him again? again, BB's judge of talent isn't that good for some reason. HE overvalues veterans even washed up stiffs like burgess.

    After seeing your previous 244 posts - it's right at your level, troll.

    Please, go back to JI or Gang Green or wherever you're from. You can celebrate the Cromartie trade with your buddies.

    In hindsight it wasn't a good move. It might have been a good move if they did it three months earlier because Burgess actually played well the last month of the season. But we will never know that. I wouldn't be upset if the Pats resigned the guy. I actually think the guy could be productive now that he feels comfortable in the system.

    Every team has bad moves that look like crap in hindsight. I don't really blame them as much as other in that trade because Burgess was plan C or D. Plan A was Peppers who wouldn't play ball and sign his tender so the Pats could negotiate with the Panthers. Plan B was Jason Taylor who all signs pointed to him signing with the Pats until the Dolphins got nervous and decided to bring him back themselves rather than let him go to the Pats. Plan C was seeing if someone on the roster would step up.

    Again, the 2010 offseason have begun. Why are we constantly rehashing traded from the 2009 preseason. The Boldin situation was nothing like the Burgess situation and comparing the two is ignoring the facts.
