I personally don't believe that due to the fact that a team like NE seems to be able to pull key guys in via trade each season. I know I was one of the few that was PISSED when they acquired Aquib Talib. We didn't even try to go after him.......The thing that pisses me off even more is that Mayhew wants to give up draft picks for players like Mike Thomas and Kevin Barnes but won't pull the trigger on a proven talent.
I know he had some character concerns but hell, Mayhew DRAFTS guys with those concerns (using high picks, mind you) that have question marks on whether or not thier talent will translate to the NFL. At least with Talib, it would have been a 5th rounder and a PROVEN TALENT. Now the guy is doing wonders in NE.
We can find examples of how Mayhew missed all season. How bout the draft (2nd round) I remember a lot of debate last year on this forum about LaMicheal James.....a lot of us (including myself) had him in our mock draft. Mayhew passed him up and now that he has had a chance to play, his skills rival a healthy Jahvid Best. I like Broyles; but there is a player like Broyles in every draft....as an example, Tavon Austin (projected 2nd round pick) will be better than Broyles; you can hold me to that prediction.

K...I didnt know Basch was a jerk. I havent been on in a while, but I thought he used to be a quiet nice guy. It just seemed that everyone was piling on him. I cant stand that kind of stuff.

We need the Andy Duphrane of the NFL to come in to town and bring this depressed roster some new life!!
I'm not trying to make anyone mad here, but after this last game and seeing the lack of leadership and confidence Stafford has, do you think he will ever be elite? Also, do you see him as our franchise quarterback moving forward?
IMO, Stafford is a fine leader, it's the lack of around him that's the problem. Burleson being out is pretty big and the lack of guys stepping up and taking advantage of the situation is what's making this team suck. Also most of the guys in contract years seem to be playing for themselves rather than for the team.
Staff needs o-line protection (as if late, it's been bad) & a threat @ #2 wr to be elite. IMO
