    Is it possible that the huge cap hit of Brady and the huge cost of re-signing Seymour and or Brown could be our undoing?
    Brady takes up 13M plus in Cap space
    Extending Seymour and/or Branch could take us away from what made us the best team. We packed more talent into our cap than everyone else could.
    This happened by Superb drafting (Brady,Givens). Players who took hometown discounts (T Brown,Bruschi,Harrison) and great FA moves and player development.
    I am not saying that our run is over.
    This season only role players have taken hometown discounts (it is still early). But ALL the big FAs are about "SHOW ME THE $$$"
    The good news is that our player evaluation and selection are probably gonna be as good as ever. Maybe younger players will stay healthier?
