    I'm happy about the first sentence. :D

    But, seriously, is Vinatieri the second most-popular Patriot? I'd certainly put him in the top 5, but I'd've put Bruschi ahead of him, even without the FA issues. . . .

    Thus far McGinest and Givens are the only losses I view as impactful. I still hope AV comes back but have confidence we'll fill that void as well.

    In the case of Givens and the Titans I think everyone knows that we were not about to match that offer.

    In the case of Willie its a disappointment - the Browns didn't overpay quite as much but they still overpaid - and I have to think that the Patriots will stick to their gameplan and use that same money to bring in solid players for the future.

    If you take a step back and look at the big picture, none of this should come as any surprise to anyone.

    One need only look at the Bills and all the "big names" they've signed in FA over the years to know how much that impacts your ability to go deep in the playoffs (or in the Bill's case - to make the playoffs at all!)

    Brady, Bruschi, AV, Seymour, Dillon, Branch? (I know, that's 6)
