    #9 for me. It's time to get that #1 back that was stolen from us last year.

    The only part I would have to disagree with is the idea of Denver parting ways with Jay Cutler in order to land Cassel. I doubt Denver's FO is saying to themselves right now "We'd be much better off with Cassel than with Jay Cutler AND 2 first round picks."

    I would have to agree with you my friend. Where was this article when I was defending the positions to trade Cassel would be good for us:rolleyes:. Great read and well thought out and I like #9 the best myself.

    Bottom line is we have a successful QB who have at least 10 team interested so we are sitting pretty. Why pay a top 5 pick QB big bucks when you can get a young QB going into his prime for the same or less money but has starts under his belt. Two firsts is a good start.....and yes I am greedy and BB is too.

    They are going to have a ton of draft picks. If they want to, the Pats can get anybody they want in the draft. Anybody they sign in FA is a bonus. I think this offseason will be the best offseason since '03.

    Have to agree... IF we got two #1s for Cassel, that would be brilliant. I understand the concept of a bidding war, but there are limits. To be honest, a #1 and a #3 would be more than fair - and I have to think it's more realistic.

    But... there are some CRAZY GMs out there !
    (1) You paid how much for Jamarcus Russell ?!&!&?!
    (2) You're drafting ANOTHER wr ?
    (3) Williams for a #1 and a #3 ?

    Hahahaha !

    I've always believed we could get a #1 and a #3 for Matt, but this article is very convincing. Maybe, just maybe we could get a couple of #1's?

    If we got two #1's it would be the exact opposite feeling from our Superbowl or Brady's hit

    2 #1's wont happen, and get it out of your head. You never know, crazy **** happens but the Patriots would be absolutely bending a team backwards in that scenario. I think it'd be understandable giving up this years first for a proven guy, but the next 2 years? Hell, a 1st and 2nd is more likely and it's even still a long shot. We'll see, we never know whats going on with the NFL.

    But I do find that part he said about the extra time in the offseason intriguing, it raises a fair point. Since 2003, the quickest this team went to the offseason has been in the divisional round. They've had a a whole extra month to scout future FA's, prospects, etc. Giving a guy like Bill a minute extra is bad enough, it'll be interesting to see if an an extra month will breed the same success it did before. I'm not expecting 2x 14-2 champs, but at least one title would be nice :D

    A well done article which touches on a theme I wrote a thread about last month - the 'success' rate (took their team to the playoffs at least once) of 1st QB's is barely 60%, the ones that become stars is about equal to those that bombed completely 33%!!! This is for the last 15 years.

    So, for teams insistent on drafting a 1st round QB, it takes most teams two 1st rounders to hit on a winner. You can get Cassel for lower pick value - a 1 and 3 would do it I believe - and less money than a top ten would cost (plus, you could sign Cassel to a shorter deal) all the while getting a much more known commodity. Of course this is the kind of logic GM's specialize in ignoring.

    I think the Pats will blink first in these trade talks because there's no way they really want both Cassel and Brady under the cap at the same time.
