2nd Team Getting Their First Start
You hang your case on one trade... and ignore all the good solid FA acquisitions made by the Patriots, some of which directly lead to multiple Super Bowl championships.Wolf was assistant GM already which is more than anyone on the Patriots staff. Unless you want to count Ziegler in charge of pro personnel when we traded a 2nd for Sanu as good experience. Wolf made good changes in Cleveland and also part of a winning Packers franchise. His biggest knock was GMs typically aren't that young.
The Plus Column: Stephon Gilmore, Jason McCourty, Darrelle Revis, Alan Branch, Kyle Van Noy, Martellus Bennett, Trent Brown, Lawrence Guy, Danny Shelton, Dion Lewis, Rex Burkhead, Nick Folk, Adrian Phillips, John Simon
The Minus Column: Mohammed Sanu, Beau Allen, Cam Newton, Marshall Newhouse,
I realize i could list a hundred guys from over the years in both columns, but regardless, the hits far out weigh the misses... Jason McCourty & Stephon Gilmore are directly responsible for our last Super Bowl victory... Darrelle Revis had a huge hand in SB 49... etc etc...
So we have a proven track record established by the Patriots front office over the last decade, and you want to throw that to the side in favor of a guy who, what, spent his years in Green Bay & Cleveland doing what? Putting together incomplete teams, with vastly under performing rosters?
Is he knowledgeable? Im sure he is, otherwise he wouldn't be here... but still, not sure I understand the allure
