there are a ton to choose from. But I think the biggest mistake they ever made was letting Curtis Martin go. They didnt recover from that until Dillon, and now Maroney. at least Belichick came to make us all forget Parcells. But Martin and his hall of fame career was let go for 2 draft picks. Robert Edwards, who even if he stayed healthy was no Curtis Martin, and the stiff fullback. Plunkett's time to go had come and they got a boatload of draft picks. Mike Haynes was a big loss to. While Bledsoe and Glenn got a lot of headlines in 1996, Curtis Martin was their best and most consistant performer, the Emmitt Smith of the team and a guy they could have build around for years. discuss.
