    Considering that NE will have 2 #1s and likely 3 #4s and 3 #7s in next year's draft and the fact that players usually make their biggest leap from year one to year 2, *that* team is going to be loaded. It's no only that, just think:

    * Brady, Seymour and both lines are signed for 2008 already.

    * Jackson, Maroney and Thomas with two years under their belts.

    And last but not least, there will most certainly be some washed up former heisman winner at backup QB. Who knows, by then it could be Leinart!

    So, I'm going to rest now. You guys can have 2006 and 2007. Wake me up in 2008 when the real fun begins.

    Sarcasm aside I can never give up on a season until we're mathmatically eliminated; old habit learned in the not-so-good years. It does seem apparent that after two years of 14-2 ending in super bowl victories, we've become a fan base unaccustomed to struggling for victory. Hopefully that's not the team's feeling.

    Wait till next year................reminds me of the old Patriots. Remember when they kept losing and we would say, yea but, they will have the #1 pick next year, or when we would say, they have all number one's in the defensive backfield. Kind of looking at the Celtics, they suck, but they will be great next year after the draft, or the Red Sox rotation looks all-world on paper right now. As Bob Ryan would say, enjoy it now.

    Seriously, I know the poster was kidding and we are loading up to be competitive every year which is the way to go, IMO.

    Having said that, you never now when the stars will be aligned which is why the "damn the future let's load up for our window this year" strategy works only sometimes and seldom for more than a year.

    *Reminder, we have 3 in a short time and are competitors again*

    Just imagine what teams might have mortgaged the future to make that one run in 2001 only to have us come out of nowhere with a 6th round QB and a bunch of over the hill street free agents. LOL:D

    Glad someone was paying attention. :D

    Bluto: Over? Did you say "over"? Nothing is over until we decide it is! Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Hell no!
    Otter: Germans?
    Boon: Forget it, he's rolling.

    No, you got it wrong. 2010 will be the big year. 50th Anniversary of the Boston Patriots first game and the final year of Brady's contract. Book tickets for the Tokyo SuperBowl today while you still can!!!

    Thank God. I thought for a minute that he might just get away when he finally became useful. At least NE might get two not horrible years out of him.
