Why is there so much crying going on about the Pats' 2 trades? They had 2 firsts this year and then end of the 1st round was weak. So they traded a late first for what in all probability will be a much higher pick next year. Does anybody really think SF is a playoff team? Even if they were, unless they get to the Championship game, the pick will be low-mid 20's. It's more probable that they miss the playoffs and the pick is in the teens. There's definately the possibility that they completely suck and the pick is top 10. This was an excellent move. The trade w/ the Raiders for the 91st pick was also good. They move from te 91st to what will probably be a pick before 70th. Anybody think the Raiders are going to win more than 6 games? Me neither. BB obviously likes next year's draft class more than this years. Call me crazy, but instead of whining, crying and pretending I'm a draft expert, I'm going to go ahead and defer to his judgment and consider the moves yesterday a success.
