    Imagine firing your GM swinging for Caserio or Monti and landing on Ray Farmer.

    What's the technicality or is it just one that you imagine exists somewhere in the rules? Because this


    Seems pretty cut and dried.

    That’s where I’m at on this. If he leaves it’s not due to a title/lack of title. It’s about control and final say on all football decisions, something he won’t have here regardless of being given the title of GM.

    Exactly.

    BB can still grant permission to speak to/hire Nick but for a price.

    One possible positive to draw from this is that if Caserio leaves it could just mean that he's reading the tea leaves and sees no end in sight for Belichick's tenure with the team. I'll happily watch a lot of our people leave if it means that Bill is sticking around for a while.

    Maybe its true but in my experience when another company comes around and offers you 5x salary, more responsibility and a fancy title the reason you leave is not because the current company's CEO cheated on his wife.

    But thats just me but im a ****ty Catholic :p

    Honestly I'm of the belief in my experience that the person with the most power Goodell in this case can always find a technicality to work in their favor.
    I mean the man suspended Brady over the Ideal Gas Law for God Sakes I can never trust him that he will do the correct thing ever again.

    The point is, Easterby has zero background in football. I'm not sure what 'more' he could be doing since his entre into the field was as a chaplain.

    it's driving me nuts. I can't believe at this point of the season they might lose yet another key piece of their team.

    Right.

    Nick leaves because he needs a new challenge and wants to raise his profile.

    My understanding is he and his MA native wife have 3 small children. Its the end of the school year.

    If hes gonna leave, now is the time.

    Note he worked in that role (at the very lowest level BTW), for about ten minutes and then quite to go to theological school.

    Interesting, I never knew that about you. Let me know if you ever want to come back, haha. Happy to talk anytime, though I'm sure you've moved on. ;)

    Mostly I talk football on here (particularly the draft), but I'm a Sunday School coordinator at our church and I fill in several times a year when our pastor is ill or out of town, so I'm always working on a sermon or lesson in my spare time. This probably isn't the forum for that discussion, but I really enjoy studying and teaching the Bible. Maybe the Patriots can hire me to fill the void left by Easterby -- I promise that I won't poach anyone from the front office if I ever leave!

    Re: tampering, if the Patriots didn't receive any compensation after the Revis fiasco, then I strongly suspect that nothing will come of this allegation, either. Even if the Texans are found guilty, don't expect much to happen. Lest we forget, this is from the Jets reporter, Mehta, regarding the tampering with Revis:

    Tom E. Curran: New York Jets' 2015 tampering with Darrelle Revis more extensive than NFL revealed

    Jets' 2015 Revis tampering was exponentially worse than initially reported

    Correct. My point is its not like he taught Sunday school before joining NE.

    JAX, KC and NE....he's been around long enough to know better.

    He was doing Satan's bidding. :D

    Eh, it’s a win-win. If he stays he stays so great. If he leaves, screw him this team’s all about Belichick anyway so good riddance.
