What, me worry?
Our dynasty track record attracted a bumper crop of mediots who have lots of 'platforms' to stuff 'content' into.It seems like most times a player of note from another team becomes available the Pats are one of the teams that are rumored to be interested. In this case is that interest real? RB seems to be one of the Pats stronger positions.
Actual team interest is not required to set off their urge to plant their flags on a tottering mountain of worthless hot takez.
Lots of local writers dashed off the 'what if' piece probably knowing that no one inside the team actually was interested in Bell.
The national writers soon dropped the 'Pats are interested in Bell' angle, the locals had no choice but to keep pumping it up.
