    To make excuse after excuse as to why it is ok that Randy Moss was not signed.


    Randy opens things up for everyone. If this guy walks I cannot wait to hear all the homers try to justify a terrible mistake by the pats!

    I don't know if the "homers" are getting ready, but the douchebags certainly are.

    We don't know what was being offered and we don't know what Moss is looking for. Every player has a maximum price that a team can afford to pay a player, any player.

    Maybe danny88 should go back to his MLB forums where they can pay any player anything. That way he won't have to strain his brain thinking about the big picture.

    Danny, you're almost as bad as the "Danny" who always calls into WEEI...man, is he a blow-hard!

    You make your statement as if it is fact and that the Patriots should break all the rules that have guided them just to sign Moss. Just an FYI Bro...Moss does't exactly have a solid history of TEAM play to invest millions of $$'s in. He is absolutely a HUGE talent and a HUGE risk at the same time.

    So, if the Pats DON'T sign Moss, it won't just be homers who agree with the move. BTW...how many TD catches did he have in the playoffs?

    If we don't re-sign Moss it's because he's GLASS, and too damned expensive glass at that.

    We've won and lost Superbowls with and without Randy. We will again. Offense may not be as prolific in the regular season if he goes, which will seriously impact the ADHD bandwaggon video game generation fans, but it didn't win us homers another championship either.

    I will start now for you.
    Teams(including the Pats) have been able to win the SB without Randy.
    Colts fans were right much to my chagrin,but a mega high powered offense means little come playoff time.
    I am glad BB & SP are holding the line and not panicking like many here are.
    Not winning the SB is bad!
    Not winning the SB and being in cap hell is far worse!!!

    I can just hear Danny from Everett or where ever, saying "No, let me finish!"

    You're right, this thread is now officially DEAD.

    IMO, the Patriots took a flyer on Moss and hoped he'd come in and give them something.

    Fact of the matter is he performed way, WAY above what could have been hoped for and now he's out of their price range, they got him on the cheap, but he is not going to stay on the cheap.

    IF they don't sign him, we'll hear all the crap about he's on the downside of his career, whatever team signed him payed WAY too much for his services, he did squat in the playoffs, blah, blah, blah.

    I know we're only two days into free agency, but the Patriots motto this year appears to be "Don't just do something, stand there". So far, they've lost or cut loose their blocking tight end, a one time starting safety with loads of upside, a starting corner, a back up corner and a starting linebacker and retained a long snapper, a linebacker on the back nine and two special teams players. Excuse me if I'm not doing fvkcing cartwheels of joy over those moves.

    We'll see how things settle out, but if any of you are banking on a strong draft, look no further than last years absolute debacle, one player out of that bunch stuck with the team and he has hands of stone..............

    So the fact that they won 3 super bowls with out Moss and 0 with him means nothing to you correct

    We can win SB's without guaranteeing Moss $18M or whatever he wants. We will NEVER know what it would have taken for Moss to choose the patriots, unless we sign him (then we'll know what it took).

    We took a ONE-YEAR flyer. We weren't willing to break the bank on a long-term deal THEN or NOW.

    IMO, Belichick just doesn't believe that a WR is worth that kind of money, a left tackle maybe, but not a WR.

    Why would anyone be a homer if their opinion differs from yours? This is after you have embarrassed yourself with the Maroney threads. Honestly, I'm more concerned with signing a defensive standout then Moss. If that makes me a homer then GFY.

    So the fact I WANT Moss to stay makes him made out of glass? Nice another homer with no sense. I Love how homers use my glass saying day in and day out! Danny 88 is in your heads!!!!!

    You clowns make me laugh! Belichick could cut Brady, and all you homers would find away to justify it as a prudent football move :rolleyes:


    We have not won a superbowl since 2004. I love how the homers all the sudden think we don't need Moss since we might not keep him

    OK, then. Can you name one player the Pats could have taken with one of their comp picks (in rounds 5, 6, and 7) that would clearly have made the roster last year?

    Last years draft was a debacle??

    Lets see we got a promising young safety in Merriwether in the 1st
    turned our 28th pick in the 1st into the 7th pick in this years draft ( much stronger draft class )
    Our very late 2nd round pick we traded for Welker, hmm I think that worked out ok.
    We traded our 4th round pick for Moss

    yep that was a debacle if I ever saw one :rolleyes:

    No doubt you and 31 other teams in the NFL hoped we would have franchised him.

    We'd have retained a digruntled player for one more year while DESTROYING our player relations and ability to attract guys similar to Moss in the future.

    The Pats didn't need him last year, either. I think most people agreed that Stallworth/Welker/Washington was a pretty impressive combination; getting Moss was just gravy.

    BTW--it's saying something about how far this team has come that you can actually seriously be complaining about the fact that the Pats haven't won a Super Bowl in three seasons.

    I guess you don't understand the New England Patriots must stay within the confines dictated by the SALARY CAP! If Moss wants to break the New England Patriots bank, he can take his business elsewhere. The New England Patriots survived without Lawyer Milloy, Ty Law, Willie McGinest, Deion Branch, David Givens, and Daniel Graham.

    Meanwhile, there exists a mechanism in the NFL to replace unrestricted free agents called the NFL Draft.

    Homer here. WE were 3 minutes from going to the Super Bowl without him and 3 minutes from winning the Super Bowl with him. Not a big payoff for 10 M. I think the focus on him takes away from the diversity of the entire offense. I'll be glad to have him back but won't cry if we move. In true Homer stance, whatever BB decides is good for me, it's still in BB I trust for me.

    Lets see we got a promising young safety in Merriwether in the 1st With hands of stone
    turned our 28th pick in the 1st into the 7th pick in this years draft ( much stronger draft class ) Jury is still out on the pick
    Our very late 2nd round pick we traded for Welker, hmm I think that worked out ok. Yes, he worked out terrific.
    We traded our 4th round pick for Moss And he might not stay

    yep that was a debacle if I ever saw one Yes it was, two players, possibly losing Moss and we'll see what they do with the #7 pick. If they trade down for a late first and another second and don't use the pick, what will you say then?


    I'll say it again; of the seven picks, one stuck with the team. Welker is a great talent, so that's two. IF Moss stays, it was a steal, if not.................

    End result of the season was we lost the Super Bowl, so yes, it was a debacle. The Patriots aren't the Bruins, who used to measure success by how many Adams division Champions banners hung from the rafters.............get a clue chief, ok...........

    At this exact moment, the worst case scenario is that the Pats traded Oakland a fourth-rounder to rent Moss for a year and get a late-3rd round comp pick in 2009.

    From #24, #28, #60, and #92 in last year's draft, they got Brandon Meriweather, Wes Welker, a year of Randy Moss, and the #7 and #69 picks in 2008. If you think that's a "debacle," then I really don't know what else to say: I won't convince you I'm right, and you won't convince me you're not wrong.
