    Is all of this freaking out BS normal? It's really sickening.

    What will it take for people to trust this franchise? 10 Superbowls? 20?

    It's OK for people to question individual moves, of course, but to lose faith in BB and crew and accuse them of losing their fire and basically being incompetent???

    WTF!

    On an unrelated subject (and yes, what you're seeing is normal... almost a New England sports fan tradition) I just wanted to mention that everytime I see your handle, and I hear the voice in my head say "Patjew" it always makes me want to say "Bless You". It's just a very sneezy-sounding name.

    :D

    For this day and age, yes it's normal. The Patriots are popular and football is fast becoming a year-round sport. That's a lethal combination when fans see other teams making moves while our hometown boys are standing pat.

    I agree with you, lots of people are doing the chicken-little dance right now. It's unwarranted because there's plenty of talent and plenty of time left.

    And, not to perpetuate stereotypes, but it certainly seems as if the new people on the board are the ones questioning the lack of moves.

    It's normal for 3/14. On 3/16 is when they start pulling out their eyebrows.:rocker:

    Thanks dude.

    Put the emphasis on "pat" and not "jew" and it will sound better.

    And BTW, do you think BB is slipping by not signing more Jews. Re-sign Miller now!

    patjew,

    This GARBAGE is, for this site, utterly out of the ordinary. This site, and those who post here, prides itself on smart, analytical, creative and objective talk about the Patriots. I'm sorry this is your first exposure to it. It is a very poor and inaccurate (mis)representation of what the site is truly like and all about.

    I'll chime in. This is by far the best site I've come across. i used to read the one on usenet, but way too much trolling and bull****. I love this place, although up till recently I've mostly remained silent.
    Oh, and Patjew, I love your avatar.

    PJ...it is very common amongst fans who are fantasy league enthusiasts. Also, my own opinion, I think it's very high amongst people who boast alot and now fear payback.

    I don't do fantasy and I don't boast...so I am an honorable member of the "IN BILL WE TRUST" orginization.

    Also, let's face it, there are 31 other teams out there with good people running the team also. If the Patriots never win the SB again I really don't care. I ooted when they were in the gutter and I'll root for them again...I enjoy it alot but it doesn't affect my mood either way.

    By the way PatJew - let me just add that of your 122 posts this season they've all been stellar. You ask good questions and have good input and insights on the topics of the board.

    You don't post a lot but what you do post is worthwhile... of course perhaps I feel that way because I agree with you 95% of the time.

    Patsox, you are both so right and so wrong at the same time. I started posting here last fall, but have been a lurker for over 2 years, just for info. This site is everything you said, and yet it is also the bullseye for everything hysteric, both at the same time. Off season and early FA has always brought the same sort of hysterics. Its part of the game. We will see a bunch of new posters (mostly young and or fantasy league types) who will register, log in and wail in agony at our lack of early big splash moves. They will soon be gone and we will no longer hear from them again. Has happened every year for the last two I have been reading, and now its happening again.

    PatJew, come stop by the draft forum. It's a relatively rant-free zone, suitable for geeking out on combine results and positional analysis.

    Hope you had a good Purim, by the way.

    Thanks Joe! Though I don't post alot, I do read alot here, and I've gotten alot out of it.

    Though I do post enough for my wife to call me a geek.
