    Great news, this guy has done a fantastic job in the draft the last 5 years, The Pats have had 7 first round picks since 2001, and EVERYONE OF THEM IS A STARTER ON THIS TEAM
    2006 21(21) LAURENCE MARONEY RB MINNESOTA
    2005 32(32) LOGAN MANKINS OG FRESNO STATE
    2004 21(21) VINCE WILFORK DT MIAMI (FLA.)
    2004 32(32) BENJAMIN WATSON TE GEORGIA
    2003 13(13) TY WARREN DT TEXAS A&M
    2002 21(21) DANIEL GRAHAM TE COLORADO
    2001 6(6) RICHARD SEYMOUR DL GEORGIA

    and it is not like the picks were in the top ten, in fact only Seymour is a top ten pick, the rest were either #21 or #32.

    Gee, who would you rather build a team around, Brady or Eli?

    Plus he has plenty of cap room, and 2 frist round picks!

    Now get working on the draft Scott!!!

    Good news but let's hope it has nothing to do with the Dolphins being interested in him.

    always has to be someone doesnt it.... anyway, he wouldnt go to a division rival without it being his only choice, being how close him and BB are. if he was going to go somewhere else it would be someplace like the Giants

    Actually NFL Radio on Sirius just read a statement from Pioli saying he's honored to be considered for the Giants position but he's staying on at his position in N.E.

    The sports media rumor was both Pioli and Belichick were linked to the Giants, however now it turns out the Giants themselves were trying to figure out what's going on? It certainly appears that someone has a credibility issue.

    However it's fantastic Pioli is sticking around. Up here in Maine where the winters are usually cold and miserable, the Pat's being in the playoff's means a great deal. Hopefully this news gives the players a boost too as the prepare for the Chargers ass-kicking!

    That's fantastic news! Better still is that if he is staying it looks like the nervous rumours about BB must be wrong.

    Great news. I was worried that he may take another job, although I never expected him to go to NY despite the press hype. His statement makes me feel at ease.

    So, it's possible that the Giants themselves may have 'leaked' this non-story to the press.

    Amen. I guess the expression "what price success" sums it up. I hope the Krafts have promoted and are paying Pioli what he's worth. Sounds like they are.

    I have such respect for Pioli. How many of us could resist the chance to go for the glory with arguably the highest-profile job in our profession? SP has his feet on the ground more surely than anyone I can think of in sports. He has a good thing going here, partnerships and friendships and team success. Kudos to him for valuing it and recognizing how exceptional such a situation is.

    As I understand it, if the Giants GM position includes "final say" over personnel appointments, then the Pats couldn't have said no even if they'd wanted to.
