    "Being a 1 is important to me"

    sorry for the duplication - Miguel was posting the same thing at the same time.

    I do think the above line needs to be considered as this is debated. What would you have the Patriots do about David's desire to be a '1'?

    Probably let David know that Deion only became "#1" because a) he got open and b) he caught the ball. I think it's been demonstrated time and again that Brady will throw to many different WR's. If he wanted to become #1 he should have made himself a good target more often.

    There is nothing that the Pats could do.

    There are 2 possibilities.
    Givens thinks that he is a 1 and the Pats think that he is not
    Givens and the Pats think that Givens is a 1 but the Pats do not want to pay 2 #1s.

    Either way, I see no compelling reason for the Pats to change the MO that has helped win 3 of the past 5 Super Bowls,

    I think David will quickly realize that life as a "1" will be much harder since he will have to matchup with opposing D's best corners. Good luck with that Titans #89.

    Number one, number shmun. Hey David, there were Rice and Taylor, Duper and Clayton, Lavelli and Speedie, Hirsch and Fears (the last two pairs going way back). Just get your a** open and you can be a 1a.

    Well the beat writers have been hinting at a philosophy difference between the two sides for awhile now, and now we see what it was. Its not football, but role. If he thinks hes a 1 then goodbye David, it was great while you were here.

    A great football poster from another board submits the following:

    I think that's a question well worth considering. Was that article really all about negotiating?
