    Don’t forget Edelman trying to tag along.

    Henry is the priority. It makes no sense to franchise Tannehill or sign him to a big contract.

    Today, my CPA told me Melvin Gordon to the Texans is a done deal. I have not seen anything about that yet. Looks like SD is prime for selecting the Ohio State stud RB in the 1st.

    Astute observations on your part as usual.

    The Homers went nuts after I called out Gordon as useless culprit # 1.

    What connection does your CPA have with Gordon?

    Gordon shouldn't have been given a second chance after what he did the year prior completely letting the team down.

    BB got AB, Josh and Sanu for TB, spending all of his flexibility with the salary cap. It wasn't BB'S fault that AB blew up, Josh relapsed and Sanu got injured (remember he had double digit catches his first full game prior to being injured). Things didn't work out last year but it wasn't for lack of trying

    Had he "tried" earlier in the season, Gordon and AB wouldn't have been needs. They'd have been bonus additions. So saying that it was not for a lack of trying is entirely perspective based. He spent the early part of the off season shopping at the dumpster sale in the back of the K-Mart clearance store. None of that panned out.

    BB knew full well his WR's and TE's were a dire need last off season yet signed a bunch of crap who didn't make the team/or traded them and drafted only ONE skill position player. He knew AB was a risk. He knew Gordon was a risk to relapse as he let the team down just a year prior. Sanu's 8.1 yards per catch game was pedestrian and people need to stop referring to that game as being "productive". Regardless, trading a 2nd round pick for him and putting him back returning punts when he's not only attempted one in his career but when the team was rail thin at WR was beyond idiotic.

    Spending a 1st round pick on a WR isn't trying? I know he got injured in camp but them's the breaks, necessitating the need to add more. Maybe Josh or TB should have stepped in and done something (game plans, etc.).

    Good HS friend has a business interest in the MLS and to a lesser extent the NFL and has become friendly with Kraft over the past 10 years. He texted me today that Brady is as good as gone, unless something dramatically changes over the next week. He ended the text with:

    “Not sure where he is going but Kraft acknowledged that they are not in negotiations with him.”

    My friend is not Field Yates but what he heard independently sounds very much like what Yates tweeted out today.

    Believe it or not....just passing along what I have heard.

    Field Yates reported a story today. Your friend texted you a very similar version of Yates’s story. Do you see why this scoop is problematic?

    Are you really going to try arguing that a rookie WR was supposed to be the answer? That a rookie WR was "trying" for his rookie season?


    C'mon, man.

    Dontrelle Inman
    Bruce Ellington
    Maurice Harris
    Thomas, coming off of a popped Achilles (and I was happy with the deal, and think trading him was a mistake but, still, he was coming off of that popped achilles)

    That's supposed to be trying?

    It’s going to be a long week of speculation, but it’s starting to look like some of those crazy ESPN stories about friction might have had some truth to them.

    We saw some of it in the Brady documentary, and if the reports are true about him turning down a multi year deal to retire a Patriot, then it’s fairly obvious that there was some fire with that smoke. Why else would a man who’s played 20 yrs and has money for generations suddenly decide that he wanted to end his career somewhere else? Does anyone really still think that this is about money?

    Which wideout was consistently getting open at the sticks after Week 4 and, if that was case, why did they have to line up Edelman at the X as often as they did? I await your always cogent and insightful response.

    Wait a minute, you have a “friend in the know” who says one thing, but there’s also another “friend in the know” who says another. My mind is spinning, nothing makes sense anymore!!!!

    I don’t know about you guys, but I cannot believe that Brady had the AUDACITY to diversify his financial portfolio and invest in a production company. God DAMNIT, get rid of this geriatric DIVA, Bill!

    We also heard from multiple sources last year Tom and BB got along swimmingly. We also saw them on the NFL 100 and seemingly looked like they got along just fine. Was it window dressing? Maybe. Was it the truth? Also a maybe.

    My point is no one is in position to say BB and TB12 are bestest buddies or state there is a lot of acrimony between each other.

    NFLN, ESPN, Curran, etc have no freaking clue what the state of their personal relationship is but we have a good idea what their business relationship is which is a player who thinks he deserves something and his boss who doesn't.

    Because his bosses have determined it for him. They made him an offer and he rejected it. BB has created a culture that isn't for everyone. I personally believe Tom has had enough of that culture (see Gronk)

    Its not all about money but its a big part of the equation. You don't think if the NEP offered Tom a 3yr deal with $60m guaranteed he'd find a way to continue to work with BB?

    Sad part is some fans really believe this. It's almost like Boston fans, in general, reject Superstars in favor of "dirt dogs". Yes, let the losers in LA have Brady. We have Stidham kehd.
