    I went out of town, to a location devoid of TV, internet access, even mobile service, this past weekend, and just returned to see Cassel has been traded for a second round pick? Are you $@!#ing kidding me? Tell me this is a joke or something. And Pioli was the guy boning the Pats like this? I'm sure this has been discussed ad nauseum already here, but wow, this seems like Belichick doing a close friend a favor or something. I'm sick to my stomach right now.

    Tom Brady is our Quarterback.

    Still furious?

    It's not really that big of a deal.

    There were potentially better offers out there, but TB was too slow and the paperwork was already finalized with KC.

    #34 is pretty close to first round value, anyway.

    i am sorry but after hearing about this 2nd deal why. i am now pissed i was resigned to the "bb got the best he could" but seriously now if people say that they r wrong because he clearly didn't. look i am not saying he has suddenly turned terrible but you have to face facts it is one day on and we find out we could have got a first and kept vrabel. weather we cut him anyway is irrelivant. i love bb and the pats but we are dilluding ourselves by thinking we got the best deal possible. good value for a 7th rounder? absolutley best value? no

    May as well lay the rest of it on you and get it over with then:

    • Gaffney and Paxton are gone too.
    • The Pats used the freed-up cap money to re-sign Sanders.
    • All the spygate conspiracy theorists want Goodell to investigate BB for the trade.
    • The first writer to defend BB was Ron Borges.

    You have a lot of catching up to do. This board has been through a stage 5 hurricane the last 24+ hours. I think it is slowly calming down or maybe we are in the eye of the storm.

    For the uptenth thousand time.. There was no Market for Matt Cassel.. Sorry, Denver joined the party to late.. Matt Cassel was a seventh round pick that was developed , and for not a freak inj to a HOF this is not even discussed, and we are talking hopefully Brady's 4th ring... We got the best we could for Matt Cassel, and hope he does well in KC. Just not against us..
  10. the pats got a 2nd rounder for the 3rd best QB on the roster

    No harm no foul JB. It's an over-inflated sense of self worth and righteousness where a contribution to one of the numerous threads would have sufficed. It's amazing the parallels between supporters from different countries following different codes.

    I'm a bit sore from the inept Patriot front office decision making process of the last 10 years or so Richter, so you'll have to excuse me for declining your offer.

    I'm sorry that you're operating under the assumption that I care about your opinion. I don't care if you think this is a crap thread, this is a shock to the system as far as I'm concerned, and I don't need some little turd posting that kind of stupid drivel aimed at me.

    Hahaha nice analogy.

    The whole thing is still a bit baffling, even for me after having more than a day to try to rationalize it

    Another thread on this. Great.

    It's the second pick of the second round, not just "a second rounder" and by all accounts there was little to no market out there other than a possible 3 way deal that seemed unlikely to actually take place.

    Hilarious that someone who posts a picture like that has the sheer hubris to talk about other people's over-inflated senses of self-worth. The hypocrisy is staggering.

    Im very glad we got a second round pick for a guy that was going to be cut in sept if not for Brady's inj...

    And there was no market..

    Detroit and Tampa wanted in only because they might have had Jay Cutler

    Chicago - NO

    San Fran - No - were more interested in a aging Kurt Warner

    Minn- Rather give a fourth for Sage Roesnfeilds

    Carolina - Maybee for a peppers deal..

    We needed to move Cassel now, we had to clear that money, if we did not franchise him, he would have walked for nothing this year a comp third next year...

    Its over, and yes we have Tom Brady, who I would take over anybody in the nfl that is playing now... Nuff said , lets move on and fix the D...

    Careful, some people don't believe you can say that Belichick/the Patriots mishandled a situation without being 1. an idiot or 2. a whiner.

    There's plenty of info out there that suggests a better deal could have been made if the Patriots were just slightly more patient.

    I certainly don't believe in any conspiracy theory, but I do believe the Patriots could have gotten more in return for Matt Cassel. That doesn't mean that BB or anyone in the front office is inept, just that I believe they handled this one situation far less that optimally.
