    Man, it's weird....if we still had Brady on the roster, I'd be all like, "WTF are the Pats doing? Sign someone! Anyone!!!"

    Now I am all like, "Meh, just bring in bargain bin guys and try to win or tank with Stidham"...not even worried about it. My thoughts on the team as of today (3/18):

    QB: Stidham and Kessler = C -

    OL: Wynn, Thuney, Andrews, Mason, and Cannon = B - (Last year's performance leaves us some questions)

    RB: Michel, White, Williams, Burkhead, Bolden = B - (White gets an A, but Michel was so-so last year.)

    TE: LaCosse and Izzo = D - (And I don't think it's getting any better in FA, will have to draft)

    WR: Edelman, Sanu, Harry, Meyers, Byrd, and Slater = B - (We need more talent)

    DL: Guy, Wino, Butler, Simon, Cowart, Wise, and Rivers = B - (We need a plugger in the middle and more depth as I think Wino/Simon will play off the line more)

    LB: Hightower, Bentley, and Calhoun = C - (We need help here!)

    Secondary: McCourty, Chung, Gilmore, Jackson, Jones, J. McCourty, and JoeJuan Williams = A+ (probably the best secondary in the league, IMO)

    ST's: Gostkowski, Folk, Cardona, Bailey, Slater, Ebner, Bethel, and King = A+ (I think we have the best gunners in the league, a top 5 punter, good snapper, and a top 8 kicker or Folk who I'd rank 25th-30th in the league).

    ============

    We need to inject youth into this team...linebackers (pural), run stopper, more pass rush, OL depth, RT of the future, WR/TE that can stretch the field and win one on ones, and possibly QB.

    WR
    too high a rating. It just doesn't make much sense that one of our top needs is rated B-.

    OL DEPTH
    We do need to sign some depth. We do have Froholdt and Cajuste. We will likely re-sign Ferentz as a backup center (our #10 OL). We will re-sign Newhouse or someone else to compete with Cajuste. I don't think that this is a major issue.

    It is the health for the starters that is the issue, especially Andrews and Cannon.

    DEFENSE
    We just signed a NT. I expect another. We do need a couple of LB's. I suspect that Calhoun is one, since he is a STer, the primary role for a backup LB.

    Dominos fall until they are all knocked over, or something stops them. I do not see anything to accomplish that.

    Other than that, it's just a prediction, nothing more.

    I would probably enjoy it more, if the world was normal.

    I tend to agree that's what a rational GM would acknowledge...so why did Bill throw 8 figures - again! - at DMac?

    perhaps because Dmac is still one of the best safeties in the game. You act as if his $5.4M 2020 cap hit will break the back. The likelihood of getting a better 2020 cap value is virtually nil.

    You're forgetting Terez Hall. A guy the Pats had on the PS last year and whom they seem high on.
