    Jim Donaldson: Pats didn't get enough for Cassel and Vrabel | New England Patriots | projo.com | The Providence Journal

    nothing new but the hyperbole and early overreaction to start the article is sadly predictable

    Yeah, I saw that earlier and figured Borges was busy copying and pasting a column that will surely garner it's own thread in a few hours.

    "“I look at Cassel and I think Scott Mitchell,” one longtime NFC personnel man said yesterday. “That’s who I see.”"

    Bill Belichick doesn’t deliver friendly favor - BostonHerald.com

    "“That was the best deal they could get for him. I wouldn’t be surprised if that was the only deal. In talking with teams, I couldn’t find anyone interested in him, to be honest with you,” said former NFL general manager and current NFL Network analyst Charlie Casserly."

    There's one thing we can be certain of. The media will always think they know better than BB. :rolleyes:

    Read my top link from the previous post, Borges actually had quotes favoring the Patriots here. He's an unpredictable man that Ronny :)

    Anybody else wondering if these are the same village idiots who would be saying the Patriots front office has issues if the team demanded more in return and was forced to pay Cassel as a backup if no team bit?

    OMFG................. My take all along pretty much mirrors Borges. I think I just threw up in my mouth a little bit.

    Ha ha, you're right! The guy is a chameleon. Every time I expect something negative, he writes something positive - and vice - versa.

    Re: Jim Donaldson:Not enough for cassel

    I love the last line of Borges' article, quoted from an unnamed source:

    "Bill Belichick wouldn’t do his mother a favor,” one NFL insider scoffed yesterday. “Anybody who looks at this deal and thinks he did doesn’t know him. Or the guys he just traded.”

    So because KC was the only team offering for Cassel, Pioli managed to strongarm Bill into giving up Vrabel as well?:rolleyes:

    or maybe even before pioli left NE they had decided to let vrabel go so he knew about this and asked BB to add him in instead of releasing and him going to jets or browns for e.g.

    I actually think this is likely. And I find it odd nobody is saying it.

    Re: Jim Donaldson:Not enough for cassel

    Jim Donaldson is a lazy reactionary writer, who does not do his homework and lacks the intelligence to look at a big picture.. sometimes I try to read his articles, but soon dismiss them as mindless dribble of the idle press..
