He was asked about AV's signing. He started out with "In Bill I Trust" but by the end of the conversation he was saying that of the whole team, AV and Brady were the two franchise guys and he went as far as saying AV was more valuable than Brady! He also said that Bob Kraft should have stepped in and told BB that this was a case where the budget shouldn't be discussed. Of course, Ryan prefaced all of this with a statement that if AV just comes out and tells everyone that this was all his doing, he'd forgive the Pats. EDIT: Almost forgot... Ryan also mentioned that Bill Parcells always claimed that Lawrence Taylor "made him what he was". In other words, because of LT, Parcells became a great coach. Ryan then went to say that AV "made" BB the coach he is. According to Ryan, without AV, we wouldn't have 3 Superbowl championships. Of course, he only cited the SnowBowl kicks.
