Defenestration: The Myth of "We Have Only Room for X # of Rookies" 1 ~ Tom Brady 2 ~ Brian Hoyer 3 ~ Dan KoppenHagen 4 ~ Logan Mankins* 5 ~ Dan Connolly 6 ~ Matt Light* 7 ~ Sebastian Vollmer 8 ~ Rob Gronkowski 9 ~ Aaron Hernandez 10 ~ BenJarvus Green* 11 ~ Danny WoodHead 12 ~ Wes Welker 13 ~ Deion Branch 14 ~ Taylor Price 15 ~ Brandon Tate 16 ~ Julian Edelman 17 ~ Vince Wilfork 18 ~ Ty Warren 19 ~ Ron Brace 20 ~ Jermaine Cunningham 21 ~ Rob Ninkovich 22 ~ Jerrod Mayo 23 ~ Brandon Spikes 24 ~ Gary Guyton 25 ~ Pat Chung 26 ~ Stomper Merriweather 27 ~ James Sanders 28 ~ Devin McCourty 29 ~ Leigh Bodden 30 ~ Kyle Arrington 31 ~ Steven Gostkowski 32 ~ Zoltan Mesko Depth of Talent Advantage Can Never Be Taken For Granted!! As anyone can see, there's clearly room for improvement at no less than 21 of our roster spots ~ to say nothing of our Practice Squad gigs, or possible Roster Expansion as part of the new CBA!! ~ and I think we can all agree that those randomly chosen "Top 32" aren't exactly etched in stone, either, ARE they?? My point ~ and I have no pretensions of persuading anyone of my views, but merely getting it on the record ~ is that Trading Down remains a VERY viable option, and it's one I'd like to see us pursue, to compound our advantage, provided we take care of what we need. We Have a Rare + Extraordinary Opportunity Right Under Our Noses!! The Mad Croatian has carefully forged an increasing advantage ~ exponentially increasing!! ~ on the rest of the league...Yet many would have us CASH IN that advantage, rather than increase it. MIND you: I can understand that thinking: those of you who feel we should more or less go ALL IN with our Picks, and Trade Up for an Hall of Famer or three, are generally focused on General Tom's advancing years...And I certainly sympathize and respect that position. But THAT, to me, is the equivalent of running down the hill...and @#$%&ing ONE cow. ...ONE Super Bowl CHAMPIONSHIP. I say... I say...Let's KEEP Trading Down...and Trading BACK. ONE COW??? General Tom Brady has said he wants to play TEN more years ~ 9 to go ~ and if a degenerate slob like Brett Favre can play to the age of 42 ~ Tom's age 9 years from now ~ who's to say that a dedicated FANATIC like General Tom Brady CAN'T?? I say...Let's KEEP Trading Down...and Trading BACK. I say...Let's WALK down that hill...and @#$& them ALL!! *** Many of you think we have a chance to win one more Championship with Brady. I respectfully disagree. I believe we have a chance to win a BUCKET of Championships in the next few years.
