    WTF are Pioli and Belichek doing.
    EVERYONE else is getting better and the PATS get worse.
    The Patriots could have moved up to 15 or higher for just a third or a fourth...but they sit on their hands and do nothing.
    Do they have ANY plan...other than to break their fans' heart by doing nothing.

    Even the most die hard supporters of BB and SP must be at least questioning a little bit.
    It would not be so peculiar if they weren't 20 million under the cap.

    If someone can explain this amazing lack of activity and attempt to improve the team...I would appreciate it.

    At least move up from # 21 so we can get a Chad Jackson or Lendale White?


    All the fun and joy of being a NE PATS fan are being stolen away.
    I do not believe this lack of activity is a master genius plan. Do you????

    re

    First post, eh?

    Have a drink, or take a pill, and relax.
    Read the posts other people have made, so you can understand why although the team has some holes right now, what they've done have been the correct decisions.

    The season doesn't start until September.

    what???? it would be IDIOTIC to give up a 3rd and a 4th to move up 6 spots. of course denver did it, the gained nearly 15 spots with the trade. whoopy, chad jackson or lendale white. white wouldnt play for a few years and most likely will be avaible at 21.

    Probably a Denver troll since only Bronco fans talk about the Broncos. :)

    Move up spots to overpay for a player who is being paid in the first place completely on unproven potential?

    The Patriots aren't in that dire need for improvement through the draft.

    We're talking about a younger, cheaper, and still solid team. There are just some spots (WR, LB, K) that need a bit shoring up.

    As soon as we get a kicker and some type of WR, we're already talking about a better team than 2005, considering the return of Gay, Harrison, both Scotts, Light, Koppen, and a healthier running corps.

    Marcus, please read some of the posts from the ardent BB supporters and you will have your answers. First impressions don't count on these threads so come on back and give it another go.

    Yeah Marcus, your right - we have no plan. It's all over. There is no more joy being a Pats fans. That damn Pioli and Belichick have ruined everything.

    It just doesn't make sense at all that we would part with aged veterans, not overpay for our ex players that we must not know anything about. Now, we watch the Bronco's part with only two draft choices to move up 6 spots, man, what is wrong with us, we could have given next years #1 draft choice and moved up 10 places I bet, what are we thinking?

    I don't say that the Patriots should have done this but it was quite a steal for Denver.

    On the trade value chart, Denver should have given up a 2 and a 3.

    Maybe I missed it, but exactly how does that affect the Pats, they're still picking 21 st. They can still move up or down based on availability or need. The Bronco's are stupid to make a move this early.

    HOPEFULLY, the Pats are banking their draft picks to trade for Moulds. As soon as BB gets off his spring training rubber chicken circuit, he'll make a move.

    I can understand the kool-aid drinking bandwagon that trusts our front office no matter how it looks on the surface. BTW I am still on that wagon! For any football fan not to recognize that the Bronco's have made a trade that is heavily tilted to their side is idiotic. We would be praising our guys as geniuses if they made that same deal.

    Particularly idiotic to move up before you know that the player you want will be there.

    I'll try again, who cares what the Bronco's due. The Bronco's made a trade gambling on a player(s) that would/should be available at that pick, based on their projected draft. Projected drafts are a joke. Players slip down, go earlier, and teams trade up. The Pats may trade up or down, but it will be based on how the draft is going. They have never traded up a month before the draft. Tell me a year from now how well the Bronco's have done with the great trade (1st, 3rd & 4 th for the 15th pick ) and what the Pats ended up with for their 1st, 3rd, & 4th.

    the broncos made a great trade...it would not have been available two days later, let alone on draft day...abraham was going to Atlanta or Seattle....Denver used it's leverage (picking two spots ahead of Seattle) to extort maximum value from Atlanta

    when you're a solid football team, with excess mid round picks available, moving up 15 spots in the first for a third this year and a fourth next year is great business....and don't be surprised if it doesn't end there...they'll probably package them up to move up again, or trade the second one to add more later picks.

    This is an excellent point. It doesnt matter if they have a player in mind. If they don't like whats available at 15 they can simply trade the pick, and will surely add value to what they spent. I hate the donkeys, so this sucks!! With a deep draft like this it will likely payoff big for them.

    Just curious, did the Broncos trade Jake for a legit QB in this deal?

    If the answer is no, it really doesn't matter what they did. As long as they have that choking dog at QB they aren't a legit Super Bowl threat.

    I'll ignore the first part of the post because it's nonsense. My guess is Shanahan is indeed positioning himself to take a RB. Under Shanahan the Broncos have been pretty active at hoarding RBs. They seem to take 1 or 2 every season.
