http://patriots.bostonherald.com/patriots/view.bg?articleid=157302 that seems to be the gist of it... " Once again, the brains and talent of Belichick, Scott Pioli and the Kraft family won out. They beat the system. Maximized their value. They now have more than $12 million in cap space in 2006 and two first-rounders for 2007. It all looks great on the spreadsheets up in the front office of Gillette Stadium. Now what about on the field? You know, the team? Remember, youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re supposed to care more about winning on the field than the negotiating table. The Pats held the line on Branch the last few years and now heÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s in Seattle. That may be a win for the organization, but how is that a win for the players and coaches in the locker room?" Man these guys seem like red sox writers.
