    Well what ever happens with Moss I think there will be in a no win situation.

    1 If Moss signs elsewhere, media , fans will be second guessing how come they did not franchise him, why didnt they step up and pay him.. The team is on the decline...

    2 If he does sign.. They drive by media will be saying, they got scared, overpayed, well they payed him but who is going to play defense, blah blah blah..

    Well we all know as fans, that Moss is better off with Brady.. Losing Stallworth, and no word on Gaffney is a little concerning without Moss.. But if the Pats decide they gave them the best offer ,all we could do is second guess and move on.. I just dont want a bunch of shoemakers as wr.. Moss belongs in NE and when its all said and done, I still believe he will be..

    Oh good, another thread about Randy Moss. We haven't had a new Moss thread for a couple of minutes.

    ;)

    This is not a no win situation.

    The Patriots can either sign Moss or fix the WR spot by other methods. Both those have potential to be "wins." The only way they are going to "lose" is if it ends up like 2006 when there was no plan B for the Branch situation and they end up with a bunch of #3 and 4 WRs starting.

    What does the media reaction have to do with it anyway? Since when does Mike Felger determine when something is a no win situation for the NE Patriots?

    But it's the elephant that's been ridden about to death.

    Sorry--nothing personal, but how many Moss threads do we need on the front page at one time?

    Actually I don't buy that. Unless Moss gets about 15 million per, people will realize it was a move the Pats had to make, and if they had to go 2 or 3 mil more than they wanted, so be it. He means that much.

    Meanwhile, the defense needs some bodies no matter if Moss gets signed or not.

    the media is brutal on the pats, but i dont see them criticizing the pats for coughing up money for the moss.

    he broke the friggin touchdown record.

    i look at it as a win-win situation. whether we keep or lose moss, the FO know what they're doing. even in the branch fiasco we went deep in the playoffs.

    In BB we Trust.

    THE BOARDS, HOWEVER...


    might be overly critical if we sign moss and dont sure up our defense.


    or dont sign moss and go for defense.



    the only place`its a lose lose situation is with us

    "No win" with the media is your point?

    Who cares. If the Patriots decide Moss isn't worth to the team what it would cost to get him, then the only "win" or "no win" that I care about is the one on the field next year.

    I think we've fallen way too hard in love with one player. Moss won't be nearly as good on some other team with some other QB, and he knows it. Whether that will make the difference in what he does is unknown, but I have no problem with the Patriots playing chicken on this one with him.

    Before anyone criticizes anyone, shouldn't we wait to see what he does? If he signs a 3/30 deal somewhere else, that will stink. If he signs a 5/80 with 20 million guaranteed with someone else, what can you do? Move on.

    I actually don't get sick of the Moss threads. I'm figuratively on the edge of my seat waiting for his free agency decision to play out and I enjoy reading everyone's two cents on the situation.

    Again what are we going to get excited about , the jason webster visit...Moss is the key to FA, once he is done one way or another we will be able to move into a different direction.

    I'm not worried. Moss isn't going anywhere. All he is doing is seeing what he can get on the market and only ask for New England to come close to matching. However, I do find it puzzling that Moss kept telling reporters last offseason that he didn't care about the money and he only wanted to win a championship. I guess he only meant last year.

    Moss took about a 7 million dollar pay cut to his salary in 07. His base salary was 3 million, I guess you can't expect a talent like moss to take a discount year after year. After all, this is probably going to be his final big time contract. Although, I don't see the Pats FO paying Moss 10 million a year, I say sign him for 4 years for about 7-8 million. If he doesn't agree to anything less than 10, he is probably not going to come back. In the end it is all about the money, which is understandable i guess.

    Only with certain fans and Felger, but that is true every year. The same people panic every spring. How many doom and gloom threads so we need, anyway?

    I don't care if we overpay for Moss. Damn near every signing I've seen since Friday has been some dumb@$$ team overpaying for players that are nowhere near Moss's level. When you get two guys as good as Brady and Moss you keep them at all costs and the with our drafting skills we'll be fine elsewhere. Sign Moss and stay the hell away from Free Agency!!
