Losing sleep over the Randy Moss deal? Uggh. Must sleep... Zzz
Not losing sleep, but it's one of the first things I think of when I wake up.
Im upset about it, but went to bed at 800 pm last nite so i guess not ..
Not losing sleep over Moss. I have actual important issues in my life that affect my sleep. Whether or not someone feels insulted to only be offered 30 million dollars to play a game my friends and I would play for a lot less--with half of it guaranteed money--that doesn't bother my sleep.
Personally, the only thing I am worried about the longer we wait, the more marginal WRs get big contracts. The going rate for a WR has gone up in the last two days with marginal primary WRs like Jerry Porter, Donte Stallworth, and Bernard Berrian all getting $10 million or more in guarantees.
The Patriots aren't the first priority in your life? If so, what are you doing here? Backing away from the wiseass remark, boards like this, to me, provide an alternative to everyday nuances. So, it looks like the issues we talk about are life and death, and sleep deprivers. Personally, my first wish was to get Moss back onboard, but maybe the Patriots are concerned about issues with him with age, attitude, disappearing acts, etc. OTOH, we need somebody to play WR!
nope my 6 month old is taking care of it...lol
Well we could sign David Patten, Reche Caldwell and our number 1 WR , Jabar Gaffney...
Translation: "The Pats have been adamant about keeping this quite, and Moss really wants to be a Pat, and in order to noegotiate with the team, we can not say ANYTHING, at all..."
Once he starts talking, then you know they are talking and looking to sign somewhere else.
I would like to see the Pats sign him but does it bother anyone at all the way teams were able to control Moss at the end of the season and in the playoffs? But still I'd like him on the team.
Very good deduction ... I think you are right on.
I'm gonna get burned for saying this, but perhaps the team saw this as well and has concluded that he's not worth 10% of their salary cap.
Player come and player go.No ,I haven't lost any sleep over Randy Moss!
I'm not losing sleep over it but I really don't understand saving the coin on Assante and then not signing Moss.
Are they really prepared to lose their best DB (by far) and one of the best WRs in NFL history in one off season?
Are they really prepared to say to Tom Brady "hey, Tom, your number one is Kelly Washington and he's very athletic, your number two is Chad Jackson (and don't mind the fact that he hasn't found the field), but don't worry, you still have Wes Welker in the slot"?
Something about all of this does not compute.
Bothers me as well.
For more years. There's a big difference in 10 mill guaranteed over 6 years, and the 13 reported for Moss over 3.
By taking half of your contract up front, you become very hard to cut.
With the others, that's only a 1 to 2 million bonus hit n the cap per year. They can easily be cut down the road.
The long term effect of this is gonna kill the pats if they don't do something now. I would be looking at a WR forget about moss he is taking to long. He is gonna mess around and string the pats along then sign somewhere else then it will be slim pickings on WR for the pats. I hope the front office is smart enough to see this and move on because it is looking like moss is just playing games.
Well the other way to absorb a large signing bonus is spread out the contract over more years. If it'll take a 15M bonus and a 5 year deal, why not get it done?
