    I think it should be interesting to see if people here feel the trading of Moss was worse or not as bad as the trading of Seymour

    Both suck, but at least they received a 1st round pick for Seymour.

    The Vikings got him back for very little. Pats got hosed once again. And now we're hearing the Pats threw in a 7th rounder. F*cking pathetic.

    Not really. Probably slightly better than market value for a WR of his caliber.

    I feel worse after the Randy trade. He was my 2nd favorite player and atleast in the Seymour trade we got good compensation.

    Honestly, I didn't feel bad in either case because I understand the business aspect of pro football. Emotion & opinions means dog-sh!t when these decisions have to be made.

    Do I trust Belichick more than the opinions of my fellow Pats fans? You betcha I do!!:D

    Seymour, i thought trading Seymour without warning with a week to go before the season started was very cold on BBs part. Moss is an (I) kind of guy from what it sounds Seymour wasn't. Moss also wanted out, i don't think Sey did.

    I went with Seymour

    I always go with a defensive player over an offensive player because we have TFB at QB and I know what he did in the past with average receivers to which no one really ever stretched the field out.

    I also know how this defense was in the past without major contributors...not very good

    The moss trade easily.I still think they will make a move for a wr.I dont think they just trade away a player and stick with wat they have.

    I was all for the Seymour trade, I like the fact of moving him and moving the pick to say a DB or LB or OT. Never got the three 1st round picks on the D-line.

    What does that have to do with his current value?

    A 33 year old declining WR with character concerns gets a 3rd.

    A 25 year old ascending Super Bowl MVP WR with character concerns gets a 5th.

    Nobody is paying a 2nd and a 3rd for a top 5-7 WR with character concerns.

    But I realize this is part of your shtick and you wouldn't be the delightful old you without it, so carry on wayward son.

    Moss, at least we're gonna get an awesome 1st rounder in return for Seymour. The Pats got BONED in this trade. All they gained was a late 3rd rounder and LESS PAYROLL. Is this a salary dump? In an uncapped year? WTF! :confused:

    The Pats traded a 3rd and 5th for a washed up DE who was injury prone and had two good seasons.

    Case closed.

    You tell us when in the BB era after all these years of how many decent players we signed in the middle of the season that were not working at Price Chopper and called in because of injuries?...

    The answer is NONE

    BB appears to me to be one of the most stubborn coaches you will find when it comes to doing midseason signings and trades for giving up draft picks which we all know BB covets more than life itself
    ...it hasn't happened and probably won't in 2010

    The Burgess trade, while crappy, is also totally irrelevant.

    No, it's to point out their terrible negotiation skills.

    The defense wasnt **** with Seymour in 08, he was never the impact player Moss was for the team. We went through 4 seasons where seymour was mostly an afterthought, so this team was well equipped to handle the loss. Throw in a first rounder for a guy who was gone and the deal is sealed. If Moss was gone for a first, hell even a 2nd wouldn't be bad. But a 3rd rounder is nothing.

    We're talking about a guy who's easily a 1000+ receiver. And if he dosen't I promise you his teammates will. Seymour doesn't have that kind of impact, he was never the kind of player people made him out to be. After 05, it was over for big Sey. He had a good statistical year in 08, but he didn't do the things Moss does for the offense. Since 07, this team lives and dies with the offense, Moss was a part of that everyday. Seymour was hurt most of the time, and didn't lead a dominant defense. He sure had himself a nice contract year to help himself get paid, and he sure has made a big impact in Oakland huh?

    It's going to kill me watching Moss turn Minny's season around. I realize Moss was gone after this season, but a motivated Moss over 16 games is deadly for the opposition. If we come to learn his release is due to his strained relationship with the coaching staff I'm going to puke. His teammates didn't hate him, and this team needed him. We just won in Miami but it feels like we lost 50-0. All the people calling me chicken little can say whatever they want, they're heads are going to explode when this offense struggles without Moss and suddenly are amazing rookies TEs aren't so amazing anymore.

    Oh? Well then why not point to their acquiring Moss originally for a 4th and Welker for a 2nd. Those were pretty terrible deals, weren't they?

    For those saying that Moss's a declining wr, u will get a rude awakening.The guy was unhappy here because of his contract.I expect Moss to put up huge numbers for the vikings.

    At this point, it's definitely Moss. Not just because it's newer either. With Seymour, I didn't understand the trade either but I originally the organization the benefit of the doubt, thinking that there was no way that they could trade Seymour without having a competent replacement in house. I was wrong. And it's part of the reason why, while I understand why it needed to happen, I feel so nervous about this one.
