In response to PatsLifer's comment:
Criticizing The whole couch GM thing is just simpleton work. How many on this board say they wish we had drafted said player or acquired said player via FA? Probably near 100%.
It seems the line gets drawn emotionally when someone in the same breadth criticizes BB. Is he above criticism? Is criticiZing him the same as saying we could do a better job? Hardly.
People in high profile positions get criticized everyday. It's par for the course. Bb is not above reproach and those here that hold him to god status, accepting everything he does without question or criticism are more bb washers than patriot fans. And to criticize those that do seems to put bb loyalty above the team.
When bb and tb walk off into the sunset someday, what will you do then? Will you still be a patriots fan?
I surely will....little chance Whitner comes back to the AFC east and certainly not to us...BB won't pay for this guy...BB likes to sign decent rookies to their slotted contracts, tries to coach them up, and if they are all-pro star good, will sign them to a long term contract...otherwise, move on down the road...that fits the salary scheme and allows long term success...I know fans get hosed off by it, but they are running a business down there not simply ONLY trying to satisfy fans who want them to blow the future for a win now...NOT GOING TO HAPPEN...not with the Pats....
I know it's to much to ask for a hard hitting safety. He's what they need Mel. I have seen enough of Gregory. You might get him at a reasonable cost.
