    I think we let Woodhead go because we have Vereen

    Yeah that and probably price tag but it would've been nice to have him here as a Vereen replacement.

    Re: Biggest Personnel Mistake Besides Amendola


    Woodhead has been terrific in San Diego this year. The Chargers coaching staff has pointed out to the media that he was one of the smartest players they have seen (no doubt Pats coaching contributed to this). Rivers loves the guy. Considering how cheap he would have been to keep I beleive this was a bigger mistake than letting Welker go. If the Pats had known Hernandez would soon become a murderer than letting Welker go would have been a huge mistake but Hernandez looked like a superstar in the making. The next Dallas Clark with more speed. I wish Welker was here as much as anyone but a Hernandez, Gronkowski, Amendola trio looked pretty formidable to me in the offseason.

    I can understand letting Woodhead go due to Vareen-but if the Wes Welker thing was due to an Ego thing between him and BB then it makes it yough to swallow and explain a million or so a year difference between DA and WES-esp. if WW goes on to win a SB with the Broncos?

    Being 5-1 I would think we would be talking about the biggest personnel success. To each his own.

    Vereen 589K in 2013

    Woodhead 750K plus incentives in 2013 - 1.75 million in 2014

    Kind of a no brainer, not to mention SD isn't making the playoffs in that division.

    [/QUOTE]

    You don't have to cut Vereen to keep Woodhead. Running back is the most dangerous position in the NFL. Woodhead is a great 3rd down back and he did not hurt them at all last year. Ridley easily ran for over 1000 yards with Woodhead there. Rivers is having a great season and the consensus out here is that Woodhead is one of the biggest reasons. They can run a more uptempo style because of Woodhead. They may not make the playoffs because they had some horrible drafts over the past 5 years and they are rebuilding but I believe they are a dangerous team, just ask Indy right now.

    Yeah, it was BB's ego, not Welker and his agent trying to hose the Pats. -_-

    Why keep two 3rd down backs? One would be wasted, BB made the decision to go with Vareen. If Vareen was healthy, Vareen would be having a better season.

    Becuase running back is a brutal position and good football players who are cheap, are a bargain at almost any position. They have two slot recievers on the roster right now and if Hernandez had not been an idiot they may have had three. Over a 16 game schedule a huge percentage of your back ups become starters. Vareen is not really a 3rd down back in my opinion. It's only because he has good hands we think of him that way. He looks like an every down back to me.

    Agree, and the price tag to keep Woodhead was cheap enough. At the same time he would make 2 million to be a back up. Still one I wish we kept, as if Welker leading the league in td's isn't bad enough, we see Woody as the best RB on what looks like a pretty good offense in S.D.

    When Vereen is back, Woodhead will be an afterthought.  

    Vereen is - dare I say it? - a better version of Kevin Faulk (who, btw, is deserving of every greatest accolade due a Patriot player).  Vereen will be the go-to guy in the clutch and will be the answer to blitzing Ds.  

    It's not about numbers; it's about getting it done when you're asked to.  On that level, I'd say he's as valuable a weapon for Brady as is Gronk.  Need him back, BIG time.

    Woodhead was an ex-Jet when the Pats picked him up.

    And had less cred in the league at the time than Leon.

    I think cutting Daniel Fells in light of the Gronk uncertainty was a mistake.  He and Hooman would have made a nice pair of TE's to add to our Offense.  These two guys are not stars but they are steady players who catch and block well.

    Re: Biggest Personnel Mistake Besides Amendola


    Leon over Woodhead b/c of the presence of Vareen is MINOR compared to

    1. Not going the extra 750k for Emmanual Sanders (no Boyce pick)

    3. Desmond Bryant and his 5 years 34 million (only 2m in '13) deal with Clevelnad being in foxboro instead of the older, injured similar salary in '13 Tommy Kelly

    3. The two 'if you can't beat 'em join 'em vets we coulda had for cheap

     - Pollard

     - Osi

    4. Akeem Spence (DT who sacked Brady in week 3) over Duron Harmon

    5. Dobson over Collins, Larry Warford over Dobson. So Dobson, Warford, Ryan and Spence are our 4 picks.

    6. Daryl Smith veteran ILB signed to a 2 year deal at slightly higher than the 1 year close to vet min deal he got with Baltimore

    7. Trade for a TE over attempting to use Ballard/Sudfield when Heranandez was cut, or at least have kept Fells

    Safeties: McCourty, Pollard (over Adrian Wilson), Tavon Wilson, Gregory (restructured or else cut), Ebner

    Corners: Talib, Dennard, Arrington (given a slightly smaller $ deal), Ryan, Cole

    'Backers: Hightower, Spikes, Daryl Smith, Mayo, 50% Nink, Fletcher

    DE's: Jones, Osi, Buchanan, 50% Nink, Bequette

    DT's: Desmond Bryant, Wilfork, Akeem Spence, Love or Deaderick, Vellano

     

    Offense replace Boyce with Sanders, Green, Zusevics or Barker with Warford at OG, Mulligan with Fells at TE

    Woodhead is one of the few guys who showed up in our last SB.  Apart from that, I have another theory worthy of study by NFL teams everywhere.....a player that can take the field is always better than a player injured and inactive.  ALWAYS.

    Letting Wes Welker get away
    Letting Brandon Lloyd go

    Letting Woodhead go.  Yes we have Vareen, but we don't.

    Why did we pick up Leon Washington? Woodhead could have used this spot.

     The biggest personnel mistake is allowing BB to remain as GM. So many head scratching decisions by Belichick year after year. And b/c we have TB and winning records every year, BB's ineptitude as GM is tolerated. As bad as Belichick's draft record is, his efforts in free agency are even worse. The last several years of Brady's career will be wasted thanks to BB's rigid value approach.

    I think one of the worst decisions in the past couple of years is drafting Hightower in the 1st.  THat dude is slow, and worthless.
