In Response to Kraft support or sell the Team
[QUOTE]Dear Mr. Kraft, You should be embarrassed to allow your team to fail and to terrible the first two games of this season, even though they won last week. As in the last few years you discarded players like in a card game to due the greed of money. It is obvious they you are not playing to win but to play for financial gain by allowing management to dump valuable players , the offense last year and now the defense. Top rated players who made what the patriots were. I am a fan who feels embarrassed for the football players, who no longer have a chance to have a winning record or even make it to the play offs. Shame, Shame, Shame. I understand no team can be perfect, however no team should have to play without being properly staffed due to financial gain. Please sell the team to an owner who values their players and fans, so everyone can keep their dignity.

You've confused the Pats with the Bucs. Or maybe the Rays. There is this thing called the 'salary cap.' That means that Kraft can only spend so much money ever. As the Pats have shown in the past, they are one of the few teams to truly get what a salary cap means, which is why they have been competitive for the past decade. Compare us to the Colts, which bulk up on their superstar (Manning), then leave no $$$ for the other positions and get washed out of the playoffs each year for the past decade.
I'm thinking back to another year we started 1-1, which was 2003. We even lost another game that year. And everything turned out okay in the end. Today was bad and I, like every other Pats fan, wish that Joey Galloway could actually play wide receiver. But in Bill I trust, our defense held together even with the 'new guys.' We have potential. Clearly not 2007 potential, or 2004 potential. But potential.
Oh, and we no longer have a slow defense, which is an improvement over 2005 - present.
