I don't sip BB's kool-aid, I gulp it. Always have. That is no secret Every player decision over the years, I can't think of ONE in the Belichick era where I didn't ultimately side with him or the front office. When players demanded to much, I always take a "don't let the door hit where the good lord split ya" attitude. The coach was always right. In BB we trust, right???? UNTIL NOW Not that any of you will care, but I've come to the sharp realization after yesterday's game: WE SHOULD HAVE NEVER LET BRANCH WALK. I believe we'd have at least 1 more championship had he stayed here and it was a huge mistake letting him go. Don't get me wrong, it's not cuz I think he is a world-beater talent-wise. Nor was he particularly "worth" what he was asking back in the day. But it was eminently clear after yesterday's game (a good reminder for those of us that forgot), Dieon is absolutely, hands down.... Brady's ultimate binky. Brady doesn't need a receiver to make him look good so I'm not saying that, but what I am saying is that for whatever reason, the two have an undeniable connection the comes out when the marbles are on the line and a play needs to be made. They always have, and we've always have known that. So here goes - Bill, you effed up letting Branch walk back in 2007. There, I said it. Enough of that crap. At least he was smart enough to make up for it by getting him back. Branch will not be the same player that you saw in Seattle and will return to his former Patriot self. Whatever he's lost in physical gifts due to age, will be made up by his wizzened veteran status. p.s. I still overwhelmingly agree with just about every other decision the "coach" makes, so this is just a one-time thing. .
