    Lets all say a prayer for this modern day warrior. Because if he didnt play in Seattles playoff game he must be on his death bed.

    What else is new, that is why I said don't let the door hit him in the ass on the way out. He wanted a lot of money for a guy who never got 1000 yards receiving and only played 1 full season out of 4. Since he has left he still hasn't gone over 1000 yards or played a complete season.

    He wanted full time pay for part time play.

    Think Brady misses him? hehe

    What about Givens? Patten? Caldwell?

    Brady made them all.

    Look at Moss breaking Rice's TD record this year.

    Brady is the MVP :D

    Do you think Brady misses getting a ring in 2007? Well if Branch was on the team, there is no way Indy wins that game.

    Right. If DB had honored his contract, TB would have gotten another ring. Oh well. He gets the ring next month and has an MVP and a couple records to go with it. Brady-to-Moss will get their share of hardware.

    Wow, if he was on the team? What if he was on the team, but injured (a likely scenario). Does his godlike presence still propel us to victory?:rolleyes:

    Agreed. The most you ever heard of DB was during his hold out. It is pitiful that the trademark of his career and most pub he ever got was for a holdout. The SB MVP was a big deal...but for all those catches he had less than 150 yards. I hate the guy.

    with all due respect Patton has been and is a true asset for the Saints, on the rest you are correct out of all of them Patton i believe is the oldest and still the most productive.

    With Branch we probably go up by two touchdowns and lock it up.

    Wait, we were up by 18 weren't we? Never mind.:bricks:

    Wow. Holmgren sure got his money's worth on Branch, heh?

    In each of his two years in Seattle, Deion Branch has yet to come close to matching Reche Caldwell's numbers in 2006.

    Yeah Branch would have made a huge difference in the trainers room.

    Ohh I get what you are saying, by being inactive his short stature would have enabled him to sneak into the HVAC room and turn down the heat. Good call! Kinda like that Brady Bunch episode where Bobby crawls out the freezer door window and saves Greg. Ohh that was a great one!

    Maroney must have caught the Branch injury bug... I hope he exterminates the bug asap.

    Funny Dude you are. Have you ever considered the game would have been played in the Razor if he had posted his 700+ yards for the Pats?

    He's saving himself in case the Seahawks make it to the SB. Then Deon can play in front of the entire world in hopes of gathering another SB MVP award...can't say I blame him:rolleyes:

    I appreciate Deion Branch's past contributions, but the best thing he ever did was get himself traded out of town. If he's still around, a pissed-off Bill Belichick doesn't go out and get Randy Moss, Wes Welker, and Donte' Stallworth this past offseason and we don't get to see this record-breaking season. So thanks for the memories Deion, but I don't miss you one bit. ;)

    Is that what your strat-o-matic tells you? Yeah Branch catching that 700 yards instead of Caldwell would have made a huge difference. We might have gone undefeated last year too!

    I think most fans understand the Branch thing now...he wanted his money and THAT was most important... I think the Pats made him a fair offer except HE wanted MORE!! Shows how much he was REALLY worth...He made some big contributions when he was here..but I will always see him as a leech...a crybaby who was making a tantrum like a 2 year old.... and a pretty pathetic human being. It's all about you DB...rot!!
    Funny...if he had done what AdamV did and others..I would not feel that way..but you were a 2 year old who wanted out..a lil boy with a tantrum..THAT is most what I will remember about him.

    Absolutely!! If we don't have all the turmoil on last years team with the receiving corp then we're not sitting here with Moss and Stallworth (think Welker would still be here, he's been on their radar screen for a couple of years) at 16 - 0. Once again the Patriots let somebody walk away and come out smelling like a rose. Think Mike Holmgren regrets that deal and the cap space brittle Deion is taking up? :D

    I appreciate what he did, and I'm glad he's gone.
    Branch and Brady were close. I wonder if that's still the case.

    There's every sign Givens and Patten both were pretty aware of it.

    Oh, they both also ascribed it in large part to their work ethics and basically well-grounded characters -- but they were also right to do so.

    It's too bad everybody couldn't see this coming, but surprises are what they are.

    Brady has made several receivers better, and if the receivers cannot figure that out, sayonara.

    He was too hurt to play but not too hurt to start a Joey Porter/Warren Sapp type pregame incident with the Skins DB's:

    "Instead of playing, Branch, wearing street clothes and a white, down Seahawks coat, entered a huddle of Redskins defensive backs during pregame warmups and traded pointed comments and gestures with them. After a heated minute, game officials and Seattle defensive backs coach Jim Mora intervened to separate Branch from trouble."
