    I fail to see why 'playing hardball' was a bad move.
    In fact if I recall correctly the twerp's agent refused to even speak with the Patriots. Had we caved signed the little folker by tearing up this year's contract, Asante and Graham could be siting out the playoffs unless they got a new deal, RIGHT NOW! End of franchise competitiveness.

    Folks need to separate out a WR contingency plan that failed to meet the suddenly imposed requirements of one season from the demise of the Pats effectiveness as an org and a team.

    This article is a joke, but I shouldn't have expected anything else.

    Where to begin....

    1) 9-4 isn't continued success?

    2) Branch's negotiations only got ugly because Deion chose that path.

    3) Brady did lash out a little, so I'll give them that.

    4) Lowest rating is something like 3 points off of his high. Not much of a difference.

    5) Would people please stot with the "AFC East is a joke" talk?! They have the most total wins of any division in the league.

    The AFC East is a joke?

    So what does that make the rest of the divisions in the league, which all have lower winning percentages?

    They are trying to sell magazines, or website advertising, or something. They have nice pictures.

    And since when did the Dolphins "sign Daunte Culpepper?"

    They traded for him.

    I thought the same thing. It's funny how a talking point gets established in the pre-season and it somehow becomes an indisputable fact down the line. This is a scrappy division IMO. The Phins have beaten Chi., darlings of the NFC. So have the Pats. Buffalo played SD to within 3 points and nearly beat us week 1. Even the Jets are better than I expected. They damn near beat Indy.

    i dont agree with the signing of kerry collins being a bad offseason move



    obviously jeff fisher and the titans gm/organization didnt sign kerry collins to have him be the permanent starter...they signed collins to get volek out...so they can bring in VY sooner....there was no way volek was going to let fisher put VY infront of him...

    sign collins, and make him the starter, that in turn makes volek upset and break the "no trade clause" in his contract and ask for a trade.....fisher projected VY to start games during week 8-10 and on....give him time to develop under collins....but collins was just too terrible, so VY started sooner than expected...

    VY starting so soon would've never happened if volek was still a titan....

    collins knew he wasnt going to get an extension from the raiders b/c they just signed aaron brooks, and he also knew he wasnt going to be the starting qb for the titans for too long....but he just wanted a contract....







    SI.com think the AFC East is a joke, yet 2 AFC EAST teams are probably goign to make the playoffs....at least the jets have the easiest schedule out of the remaining afc playoff contenders....

    the team to beat in the NFC is probably the Bears(11-2), the bears in their division 4-0 and in their conference 9-0......OH!!!! the NFC team to beat have their only losses to AFC EAST teams...PATS and Dolphins...and BARELY beat the Jets with a final score of 10-0.....



    yes, SI has been around for a long time, but i find more and more reasons lessen their credibility.....

    yes, the same SI.com that projected the miami dolphins to win the AFC East this year. (preseason projections)

    It's hilarious that the same a$$clown rag that picked the Phins to win the AFCE because of Saban trading for Culpepper now blithely and without apology now trash the trade,

    Reminds me of a senile poster in the Forum who can't keep his own lies straight.

    Ahhh, finally some good billboard material!

    Thanks SI, for helping to rally the team together.

    Now if we can just get an ESPN commentator to say that all the players hate Bellichick!

    I agree with you guys, I expect more from a major publication. The writer didn't do his homework.

    FYI - His number 5 pick completely omits the fact that veteran Falcons' WR Brian Finneran was injured in training camp.

    I thought that was an interesting one as well. How many years in a row can you blame the WR's? I realize they have dropped a lot of balls this year but Vick doesn't do them many favors either.

    Precisely, the Colts are once again proven frauds, maybe they can run up the score a few times so some can forget about their crappy defense.

    The whole Branch thing is getting sickening, anyone who says this has obviously not been following the Seahawks.. he is an overpaid reciever, who excelled in this system.. but looks like a bust to me in Seattle.

    Seattle should have broken the bank for Hutchinson, if they did they would be over the top.

    The Pats did make a bad move, but it wasn't playing hard ball per se. It was failing to realize that DB so unhappy and therefore letting Givens walk without so much as a backwards glance. The Branch shenanigans seemed to take them completely by surprise; it's hard to believe they didn't see it coming in some way and couldn't have headed it off, either by making a good offer to Givens or by bolstering their receiving corps in a better way before the start of the season.

    For an elite team, Good moves are moves that win Championships. Bad moves are moves that don't. We'll know whether Piolichick's moves this offseason were Good or Bad in January and February. Until then, this is just a bunch of hot air by somebody trying to sell magazines or whatever.
