    Heres an interesting situational question IMO.....

    Suppose you were Robert Kraft and while he was in his office during the bye week the devil himself (NO Not Belichick,the REAL Devil;) ) appears before him and gives him an option...

    1) The devil 100% GUARANTEES that the Patriots WILL win this years Super Bowl and go 19-0 if the Patriots would give up the other #1 pick they have in next years draft which would leave them with no first rounder or reject the offer and just let the season go on and hope to win the Super Bowl and keep the pick - But the decision would have to be made BEFORE this weeks game after the bye.

    What do you do? Take the guaranteed 4th title,a 19-0 record and give up the pick?

    or leave things as-is, keep the pick,and hope it all ends up in a championship ending?

    (Of course the Devil can never be trusted but for the sake of making this interesting lets just say he is not lying this time ;) )

    Hmm...I think I trust the talent on the team to take it this year. Our team has never been this dominating in the past, and I really can't see anyone bumping us out of the playoffs. Just think of how close we were last year with the talent and injuries that we had. We've had a MAJOR upgrade from the talent, and we're nowhere near close to the significant amount of injuries from last year.

    We goin' all the way, baby!

    I'd take the guarantee and use the extra money towards locking up one of Moss, Wilfork, Mankins.

    Okay number 1, whatever you've heard, Bill Belichick is not the devil.

    Number 2, he maintains total control of football operations and makes this decision on his own :)

    Leave it as-is, no question. We've seen, good sir or madam, how the devil takes away draft picks already. :bricks:

    Having 19-0 handed to you by the devil cheapens the accomplishment.

    Were it not for that, I would accept the devil's offer.

    Not to make this a test of piety, but why is it that the devil always has to be the one making these deals? I mean, why not Ganesh? After all, isn't he more likely to be abating obstacles? That's his job. Plus, he has an elephant head. What's cooler than an elephant head?!

    Bob and Beelzebub already inked such a deal.
    Bob, though, cut a better bargain. He got Lombardi and the perfect season
    for merely pick 32
    (via inflammatory incentives)
    ... and KEPT the top 5 pick.

    Good point. The devil cannot be trusted. No more than someone who repeatedly welshes on bets. Pure evil.

    Lol thats exactly what I was thinking, the actual deal was:

    Pats get 19-0 and Lambardi

    Devil gets 1st rounder (32nd spot), $750K and a season long of media questioning Patriot's accomplishments.

    Yeah I think I know what Kraft picked :D

    Who's this DeVil guy? What was his 40 time? What's his position? Can you stand up a Lord of the Flies and play him at outside LB in a 3-4? Will he take a cap-friendly deal with an option bonus prior to the second year, so the risk is not loaded on the team while he shows what he's still got?

    We had a great off season in FA... I just don't see this one getting done midway through the year.

    I tell the devil to F-off and to "try to beat us on the field", then I go out and "run it up" by dropping a 50-spot on his azz, like we did with Gibby.

    No shame satan, you get the same ass-whoopin' everyone else does. get back in line. :rocker:
