    note: I posted this on the new members board then realized I posted it in the wrong board. Anway...

    Picture this scenario: Brady is in his late 30s and STATISTICALLY he is in the middle of the pack in terms of NFL quarterbacks. But his resume is godly (lets say 5 superbowls, 2 or 3 mvps, etc etc).

    Do you think Belichick would trade him if the offer were good? Or would Belichick consider things like loyalty, legacy as a Patriot, and what he means to the organization?

    Based on his track record Belichick doesn’t have a heart of soul. He is a businessman who looks at players as statically assets that have a value. And sometimes teams will inflate the value of players on other teams or may look at a player’s perceived value and be willing to trade a player with good statistical value for said player with inflated value (or perceived value).

    Anyway, enough with the macroeconomics.

    So, in a world where Tom Brady is a little older, a little slower and statically a little less valuable than he currently is, I have no doubt that Belichick would trade Tom Brady if he could find a team who would be stupid enough to trade for a resume.

    And considering Belichick got a FIRST ROUND draft pick for Richard Seymour, it will happen.

    I don't think there is any way that BB would trade Tom Brady. When Brady's effectiveness starts to diminish, he will probably retire. And I disagree that BB has no heart and soul. Just watching him choke up a little when taliking about Bruschi should put that falsehood to rest. Yes, it is a business and that goes both ways. Seymour has held out in the past and forced a new contract. He was going to be gone after this year anyway, so trading him now makes sense.

    Sorry I see Brady going out in an Elway-esque manner, winning a Super Bowl and never looking back. It added to the Ted Williams mystique hitting a home run in his final at bat..................

    That is definitely a possibility, but I don't think he will retire if he wins a fourth ring. I could see him doing it after a fifth ring. I think Brady wants to surpass his hero, Joe Montana.

    What makes you think Brady will get the chance to retire a Patriot?

    I think you are giving Belichick too much credit. He would trade his left lung if he were offered a decent draft pick (and it was going to save Mr. Kraft money).

    He has made that blatantly clear.

    You're assuming, of course, that Kraft would go along with it. Somehow, I think Kraft is smart enough to realize that may not be in the Patriots' best financial interests.
