    This article from NFP and others have got me convinced that the Patriots will be looking to trade back just like last year.

    Maybe the 22 becomes 33 & 65 or something like that or maybe they trade into 2011 and end up with 3 first rounders next year.

    My guess is more of the same, some good quality, cheap depth players but no real impact players. This gives the team a lot of flexibility once the CBA is resolved and allows Kraft to keep the salary at levels he is comfortable with (below the current $120M cap).

    Kraft and the other owners are out to break the players and the NFLPA.

    I'm sure if the quality of the play drops, Kraft will reduce ticket prices.

    And parking, and beer. Yes, expect a dramatic drop across the board.

    Yup. As long as there is a several year waiting list for season tickets, prices will only go up.

    Or he could raise ticket prices and pay the players less.
