    Ah, I'm waiting on the "Hog" as well.
    I agree on MB, but it's pretty clear BB has put a value on him, that will more than likely be exceeded come FA next year. And I don't fault either side for their position on the matter.
    Sherman's mouth and demeanor never really bothered me. He's an underdog, with a HUGE chip on his shoulder.

    I love Butler - his attitude, his short memory, his toughness on the field.

    But no, I can't agree with this. Sherman is still elite - Talib, Norman elite.

    Yeah, if they could only get a QB of McMahan/Dilfer caliber to lead them...

    Yep, but maybe they'll adopt my plan as a pre-emptive measure. :)

    Again, it comes down to what the Patriots want to be doing in 5 years. To be a Super Bowl winner in this league, you need a great program like the Patriots or you need to be bad enough to amass a number of high picks that rocket you to the top. Mediocrity is nigh impossible to shake off in this league because you can't get high draft picks or elite free agent talent on the cheap.

    With that said, I'm a fan of getting a guy like Sherman and keeping Butler for this season and letting him walk at the end (unless he becomes God-like).

    We've got 2-3 years with Brady/Belichick to be running at peak capacity, so let's sell the farm to get 1-2 more Super Bowls. I could care less if the Patriots dismantle after that and go 1-15. Just make sure you go from amazing to awful quick, so you can start the rebuild fresh with high picks. I don't want to be the Seahawks slowly losing pieces and slipping towards the ultimate sign of dysfunction in the NFL: 8-8.

    On the off chance acquiring Sherman happens, my fantasy football team looks strikingly similar to the Patriots.

    QB - Tom Brady
    RB - Rex Burkhead
    WR - Brandin Cooks
    WR- Julian Edelman
    TE - Rob Gronkowski
    UT - Dion Lewis
    ST - Stephen Gostkowski
    DT - New England Patriots

    QB - Jimmy Garoppolo
    RB - LeGarrette Blount
    RB - James White
    WR - Chris Hogan
    WR - Malcolm Mitchell
    TE - Dwayne Allen
    DT - Houston Texans

    IMO Butler is gone once he signs his tender. It will be a Sherman for Butler and a pick . . Sherman wants out of Seattle, seems like NE is his preferred destination and Butler punched his ticket out of town when he and his agent went to the media.

    And for the people that think Pats wouldn't pay that kind of money in the secondary. They would for a couple of years, especially given how they aren't paying big money to the DL

    Also if Pats/Sherman ends up being a bad fit Pats could cut Sherman after '17 and there would be no cap hit.

    Lots of folks are bagging on Sherman for an off year, which is true, but realize he was playing with an MCL injury for much of the season.

    IF butler goes and we can somehow get Sherman with Gilmore...good god.

    But If Butler goes...I think Revis is more realistic and he seems to be waiting for the Butler news

    Always liked Sherman and the attitude he brings to the field. Annoying when he's playing against you but he'd be a Rodney Harrison style vet for 2 years here.
