    Think about it people. BB & co don't leak information to the press. With a few exceptions, they justifiably hate the press.

    The only time a rumor might turn out true is when the author of that rumor has a thorough understanding of Belichick. There aren't too many of those around but the Jason Taylor rumor fits the mold. That signing makes sense. BB likes veterans and Taylor has always been complementary of the Patriots.

    The Peppers deal...Forget about it. It's not happening. It doesn't make sense on any level and it came from a guy who has no track record for understanding Belichick.

    Randy Moss was a "rumor" long before he was a Patriot.

    Not saying the Peppers deal is going to happen... but don't fool yourself into thinking NE hasnt considered it.

    Wow, that is some bulletproof logic. Can't possibly argue with that. After all, the Pats are the only ones who would be privy to the workings of the situation. Yes indeed.

    Alright, let me polish it off...

    If Peppers comes here, he will make less than Tom, by a good deal. he would NOT become our star defensive player. That's Vince. So he must be paid in accordance with that. If he won't accept those terms, it won't happen.

    If Taylor comes here, it will be an annual decision thereafter, making his contract cap-safe every year. If he can effective rush the passer on third downs better than TBC, great. Sign him up. Even if he's a little overpaid, it's only for one year.

    It could be just as easy to draft someone and evaluate the guys we already have as well.

    WRITE THIS DOWN (I love that)...

    If Peppers tuns up here, regardless of the pick traded, the contract will be reasonable or it just won't happen. And Bill himself could be on TV saying "we're trying to trade or Peppers" and it wouldn't guarantee it happens.

    So how's about we fire up the Trade Brady thread again, instead? We know he's healthy and could probably get us two more second rounders..... lol.

    This whole peppers crap is dumb. Why don't we just get Jason Taylor for way cheaper money and trade #23 & #47 for 15 or so for that guy below :)

    Probably because there's the expectation that Peppers is a lot better than Taylor.

    Well, nothings impossible, but I'm in the "improbable" camp at this point. Which is where I was before yesterday, actually. It was fun to daydream about it for a day, anyway! Bonus...my Fish fan co-worker is still sweating bullets at the mere thought of Pepps to Pats, and won't rest easy until it's officially settled. Good times, good times! Thanks for that at least, Carucci!

    Darn. There was a rumor last year that Belichick was interested in drafting Mayo.

    Too bad there was no truth to it. I think he would have worked out great here.
