    NFL Free Agency/Trade Rumors:

    Personally after seeing how much the late signing of Newton affected the performance of the offense in 2020 I am not sure that BB will want to go through a similar situation again next season. Give whoever ends up the vet option on the roster all the time in the world to get comfortable with the...

    McDaniels to interview with Eagles

    If I recall correctly Patricia started out as assistant on offense. I think at this point we can kinda assume that what BB really likes about MattyP is that he is able to implement BB's vision and gameplans pretty well. Otherwise he wouldn't have kept the DC job for so long. And despite the...

    Why the hell did we not try harder to keep TB12?

    I'd like to point to the analysis someone at FO did for draft efficiency: https://www.footballoutsiders.com/stat-analysis/2020/nfl-drafting-efficiency-2010-2019 Where we are #8 (a rounding error away from being #5 btw) over the last 10 years and somewhere league average in the last 5 years in...

    Why the hell did we not try harder to keep TB12?

    That is not the point though. You are implying that the front office somehow screwed up drafting when my POV is that it was mostly a regression to the mean which historically is a very normal thing. All teams -- including the Ravens, Seahawks or Saints -- have periods of time where picks work...

    Why the hell did we not try harder to keep TB12?

    When you have to start a sentence with "Yes, we won 3 SBs, but.." than anything that follows just comes off as entitled. This is not supposed to be possible and yet through good roster management despite a big churn in talent, stolen picks, no access to high end talent and some misses in the...

    Why the hell did we not try harder to keep TB12?

    The explanation is pretty easy. They didn't want him back at his price and he didn't want to be back surrounded by this talent at theirs. I don't get why it is so hard to imagine that BB of all people would say "No thanks, good luck" to Brady if he didn't think the value was there at 25m.

    Why the hell did we not try harder to keep TB12?

    That is absolutely meaningless. The year to year cap is the only thing that matters to answer that question. As has been discussed ad nauseum already because the payroll numbers are distorted through signing bonuses, incentives and whatnot. I challenge you to find a year they didnt max the...

    Why the hell did we not try harder to keep TB12?

    They essentially max out the salary cap pretty much every year until 2020. Not sure how you can be anymore all in. They had a consistent top 5 offense for the entire last decade and made the SB 3 times (and won it twice) in those 5 years you mention. So exactly what value would have even...

    Bob Kravitz writes about Deflategate

    At least he found the right point in history to have an idiotic, anti-facts stance like that.

    Bob Kravitz writes about Deflategate

    I hate how a lot of people like Kravitz conflate two completely separate issues. It is possible, plausible and entirely within the ruleset that Brady asked our balls to be prepped around the lower threshold in terms of PSI because he preferred it that way. As we have heard from Rodgers and...

    SB who do you want

    Seeing Brady in a SB would be nice in the sense that there would be a good reason to root for a team. That being said all 4 championship teams would make for interesting matchups so I honestly don't care too much. Based on QB play this season specifically I guess Mahomes/Rodgers would be...

    Why the hell did we not try harder to keep TB12?

    Because we would have been exactly in the same spot we are this year and were last year just with an even more disgruntled QB and another 1-2 years of cap debt pushed down the line and no flexibility to built around him. Brady got to go ring chasing with a stacked team and BB got to reset the...

    An ESPN writer proposes a Patriots trade for Deshaun Watson

    The board fell in the favor of the Chiefs with Mahomes still available after the top 10 and they jumped at the opportunity with a sensible package (essentially 3rd + 1st following year if I recall correctly). The Bills paid two second rounders to move up to get Allen. Nobody came close to...

    An ESPN writer proposes a Patriots trade for Deshaun Watson

    I don't think Watson's primary goal in this entire charade is to get traded, but to make sure his voice regarding Bieniemy as HC is heard clearly and with all its urgency.

    Divisional round GDT: Bucs @ Saints

    The Saints are looking at a pretty dark next 2-3 seasons given their cap situation and their need to clean out the roster. Went all in and got screwed against the Rams, suffered through the Minnesota miracle and now this meltdown with 4 turnovers.
