http://www.boston.com/sports/footba...w_parts_together_quickly_is_bradys_challenge/ I started reading this article and almost right away Gasper is disingenuous regarding the Pats last season. Sorry, Mr. Gasper, but you are wrong. The Pats were more than willing to open their wallets last year. They offered Givens $4 million a year. They offered Branch over $6 million a year. Givens chose to go play for almost $5 million. Branch? He felt he was better than Tom Brady, Richard Seymour and even Dan Koppen. Branch refused to sign his deal because he didn't want to have to honor the remaining year of his contract. The rest of his article is decent, but the swipe at the front office wasn't needed.
