I'm a little sick of how we're no longer a "model franchise" according to the media. Their idea of what that means is never what we professed to be and, quite frankly, still are. We are a model franchise because of how we operate under the salary cap. We are a model franchise because we are strong from player one to player sixty-one. We recognize talent and may pay a guard on the PS the largest PS salary in the league, and may decide to let a WR walk for a draft choice because the money is better spent elsewhere. It's about finding cheap talent from other team's discards. It's about converting players from college positions to other positions as pros. We are a model franchise because the total 61 is greater than the sum of the parts. It was never about anything more than that. The media made it into some sort of God Bless America Apple Pie bullsh*t. It isn't about that. It's about Pioli and BB and player personal decisions. Pay Brady. Pay the DL. And lock up the OL. End of.
