    Who(s) did that turn into? I can't remember.

    Thanks.

    Easily the most maligned Patriot Pro Bowler EVER. At least that I can think of.

    Think about the players that we WOULDN'T have had on the team if we had signed him to, what was then, a vastly overpaid long term contract.

    Please every decision to sign or not sign a player has ripples that permeate the team. None of them are ever done in a vacuum.

    Another misunderstood mega talent Bill clearly didn't not want because he didn't cut him, he merely traded him because wanted two 4th round picks for a first round talent more. :bricks:

    Let's not forget the 1st round pick we were robbed of by Goodell that year too.

    First-round talent, not first-round head.

    Sounds familiar. You seldom get both in equal measure in the deal...although you more often than not get a boatload of incredibly fragile ego.

    To put it another way - we 'rented' Branch to the Seahawks over a period of 4 years for the price of a 1st round pick minus a 4th round pick.

    Likewise we rented Randy Moss for the 12 remaining weeks in the 2011 season and got back a 3rd round pick which we used to draft Ryan Mallett. Note that the Vikings elected to use only 4 weeks of the 'rental period' and cut Moss where he was then claimed by the Titans.

    That was the season after!

    We had our pick and Seahawks pick, then we drafted BM and traded our pick to SF, which turned into Mayo. The Mayo year was the year we had the 1st taken from us!

    That's right, thanks. I'm a little more absent-minded these days from staying up and trying to keep up with all of the Boston teams. Love this time of the year, but it has it's drawbacks.:D

    It rankles even more that Goodell did not even slap the hand of his precious JETs for a plain and obvious disregard of the Rules; and poor Sportsmanship, in the pre-planned and premeditated "Trip the Gunner" routine.

    Goodell's precious Jets should have also lost a Draft Pick for that baloney!:mad::mad::mad:

    Brian Halloway was overrated as well, but yeah the Big Bang Clock probably wins out.

    True. But he's a diehard Jets fanboy. You didn't really expect him to punish them did you?
