    It always seems greener (I guess that can sure be taken literally) on the other fellows turf.

    Fact is - it seems rare that when the end up leaving and finding a better situation.

    At least this certainly seems to be the case for the Patriot players that have left and I think you will probably tell me the same.

    The success of Colts & Patriots make our free agents more attractive to potential suitors than loser or 500 teams. They come after our guys with offers way above their reasonable value, to the point where it is wise to just say goodbye.

    Case in point for us....Woody, Law, Andruzzi, Givens, Willie Mac, Meion Branch to name a few.

    Not much that can be done......is the price to pay for winning.

    Great point Ryan, like for example, when the kicker of a team that won three out of four Super Bowls wants stupid money, doesn't get it, and moves on to another team, where he has been basically injured all year.

    Funny how that works out.

    I guess Edge was sick of getting close and not winning and having a quarterback who is 3-6 in the playoffs, so he took a big pile of money to go play for a team that has no shot.................

    New material, what are you talking about? I was backing your excellent, lucid, well thought out point about what happens when players leave for the money. The Dolts have one with Edge and we have one with Adam; lighten up dude.........

    Adams team is 6-0. Edge's team is 1-6.

    How do you have one with Adam?
