Mikey has made over 20 posts declaring the very same point. His panic that the Patriots FO is squandering the prime of Tom Brady's career by being "cheap" with their big stars. OK. Shouldn't someone be questioning the strategy of BILL POLIAN in squandering the prime of Peyton Manning's career by creating a top-heavy, no-depth team that runs out of gas in January every year? Peyton is two years older than Tom, and has won NO Super Bowls. Isn't HIS biological clock ticking?
