    Bad New.... After being frontrunners to get Boldin Pats decided to drop out WHYYYYYYYYYYY

    Can somebody tell me why I understand we don't have a 3rd round pick but what about a 2nd we have 3 of them?

    Is there any other receivers out there who the Pats can possibly still get?

    Because after giving up a 2nd, you're still going to have to sign him to a big contract after 1 year or let him walk. Plus he's often injured.

    The National Football Post is saying they "dropped out" to cover their as*es for the BS report that they were the "frontrunners" earlier.  At the exact same time they put the "frontrunners" story out, a real source, Adam Schefter, reported that the Ravens were close to getting him.  Pats were probably not even involved at all.

    Now this is beyond frustrating because I called this exactly what it would take and it seemed beyond reasonable.

    I said a late 2nd asking for a 4th/5th back and it would take about Moss money with an extra year to sign Boldin and guess what that's exactly what it took. To me that seems more then reasonable seriously I don't get this lack of move at all. It was a steal like Moss was. This really gets me upset. Unless we sign Walter for 3/4 to half of what Boldin got then I just don't know what to say.

    No BB's going to go out and resign Joey Galloway, that's the type of player he has fallen in love with over the last few years. That's why the team got old so fast, bad veteren FA signing's and poor drafting lately has depleted the team of young studs like Indy seems to have right now.

    Well, scratch that. The Ravens just gave up a boat load of picks to get him.

    I'm not a big fan of this years free agent class, although I don't think the pats should just sit on the hands while the jets and dolphins get better. As for Boldin, I liked him when he was younger; he was a very good run after the catch guy, strong, tough. But at 30 and with some injuries, I'm not dissapointed we didn't get him. Plus he is not a deep threat and that was really lacking from the offense last year.

    I don't understand this at all, you have the opportunity to get a top 10 WR, and he's a beast, for a 2nd and a 4th, and a fairly economic contract, and you BALK?!  The Pats are gonna most likely lose Moss after this year, Welker's hurt, Edelmen's young...c'mon Bill, anti up and pay for top talent.  So now we're left w/ Brady throwing to a 36 (?) yr old potentially somewhat unhappy Moss, a 2nd year slot WR, and a guy recovering from a torn ACL.  Sweet.

    Reiss had Patriots interested in Derrick Mason if he was not retained by Baltimore... Don't know how that stands now.

    I really hope that they didn't pass on Boldin and Walter to sign Mason. His stats look good but at 36 and being the only real wr threat on Balt just screams to me another Galloway. Moss will be gone next year and getting another aging wr who is past his prime just sounds like another flip of the coin, which we've been losing a lot lately

    Our defense was good enough back then to overcome our offensive shortcomings (WR's), that's not the case now.

    The 3 Super Bowl's were won with a great running game and a great defense, neither of which the Pats have now.

    Maybe because we don't have a great defense or running game anymore. That's why in the 16-0 season the offense was changed, to make up for the lack of both.

    because the defense hasnt done anything since the last super bowl win.if you cant get it done with the defense.get an offense that can kill teams and carry the defense.

    bingo ncpatriotfan...the offense has to be good enough for us to win now to overcome the defensive shortcomings, which is the exact opposite of how we won our SB's.  It's a lot easier to make an improvement to our offense than it is to improve our defense...although the defense NEEDS an upgrade more than our O.
