Yup, I did get a chance to read them. I'm going to send you my thoughts on it later today.
^We can use that as a guideline for trades. Generally, when BB makes his trades, he ends up getting the better end of the deal.
So I think its fair to have a couple deals where the Pats get a little more value in return lol.
Well, as I said earlier, I'm not an expert on the college players so I'll just agree with what you're saying there haha. I do believe the Pats will acquire either a 1st rounder or 2nd rounder for next year. They almost always go into each year with at least 3 picks in the first 2 rounds. Perhaps the Vikings pick gets moved for a 2nd rounder next year.
As for Malcolm Floyd, I'll be honest, I don't find that likely at all lol. While I would love for the Pats to go after someone like him, I think he'll be a bit out of their price range. I was going through the list of WR FAs and I didn't really find any vets that BB might go after. Lance Moore isn't a vet but maybe BB takes a look at him.
As for the Pro Bowl stuff, I actually wasn't thinking of Aso. I was just thinking in general. It's a good opportunity for BB and his staff to see some of the league's top players and if he really likes someone, I could see him maybe going after that player. Obviously, I would love for the Pats to go after Aso but I think he's a bit out of their price range. But maybe Aso takes a liking to BB at the pro bowl and that leads to him coming to the Pats at a discounted price (hey, I can pray right? lol). But are there any other Pro Bowlers who are possible targets? I can't think of any off the top of my head.
I agree with the Bailey idea. The question is, how interested is he in getting paid? With the way Denver has been playing the last few years, it probably would be a good fit with NE.
As for Pierre Thomas, thats what I'm thinking too. The question is, how many other teams are thinking Thomas. If some team gives him a contract based on his 09 season, I think BB steps out of the bidding. But with so many other RBs available, Thomas is probably likely. Also, I think Ronnie Brown is a possibility- he'll be looking for a shorter contract and he'll be low money. Could be a good bargain for the Pats.
I'll let you handle the draft part since as I said, I don't know many college players. But I do think a QB could be taken in the 6th or 7th round. Know anyone who BB might like?
so we should share our ideas for the offseason simulation. Some thoughts of mine:
BB dips into the FA pool for a low-risk, high-reward RB that will be had at a discounted price. Most likely a productive back in the past coming off an injury.
The Pats trade the #33rd pick for a 1st rounder next year.
I could see the Pats going after another vet WR (like Holt, Galloway)
positions I could see being drafted: LT, LG, RG, DL, OLB, CB, WR, RB and QB. I think the Pats grab a QB late in the draft so that they have 3 QBs on roster.

There's a good crop but as we know, BB tends to look for bargains unless there's a player he really likes. Something else to keep an eye on will be the pro bowl this weekend. Remember BB was at the pro bowl in 06 with adalius there and I think that was one of the things that led to the signing.
do not think that because I have accepted your friend request that i will allow you for even one second to have sex with Jessica Alba.
So in essence Wade's NT is actually doing the pass rush, while BBs is opening up the pass rush for other guys?
If you dont mind -- Can you explain to me the difference between BB's/Phillips/Rexs 3-4...like the whole gap system you where talking about.
I actually thought our STs were awful. Folk missed that kick, Weatherford had a brutal game (its funny, he's been amazing in every stadium except of Foxboro). The coverage was amazing and Shaun Ellis played like a man possessed.
I thought the defense for the pats played well to be quite honest. We just had some big plays.
good game my man. Pats will be back for sure
How is it the one Patriots fan I throw out that Red Sox thing on is a Yankees fan?
