[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Tedy Bruschi: What is most important to him now? : No one knows what they offered him. It is reported as 5/35, but that means nothing. What if the contract was structured as follows: Bonus 3M YR1-3m YR2-3m YR3-3m YR4-10m YR5-13m With no guarantee of being on the team YR4/5 Mankins w/b foolish to sign. I understand Springs is not on the team this year. But he was last year, and the Pats threw him 4M. He never got onto the field. They also signed Burgess for 1.5m and he played terribly last year
. What is a guy like Mankins supposed to do? He supposedly was "promised" he would be taken care of, he waits his turn while money is spent on much lesser players, he is the best player on the OL protecting the franchises #1 asset. Agree with Bruschi, he should get his money. I keep hearing that Tackles make the money, not guards. Well after this year, tell me what starting LT S Vollmer is making? And what is starting RT N Kaczur making? With this years defense, the offense MUST put up 25-30 points every game.
OL is down 2 starting players at the moment. Plus, the weak link on the line, Koppen is still starting. Not a formula for success

It is kind of foolish to respond to you at this point sense you have already been exposed for what you truly are but here goes.
Nobody knows what was offered to Mankins but judging solely on how the Patriots re-signed most of their FA's then you can safely assume they would not make a ridiculous offer like you have conjured up. Neither party would benefit from the waste of time and the Pats would simply not offer anything as they have done multiple timesw in the past.
Springs started 8 games and played in 12. Burgess started in only 6 games last year while he learned a new system and pretty much new position. You saying he played terrible shows us your hidden agenda. Mole.
Volmer is in the 2nd year of his rookie contract, show us any player who got his contract reworked in his 2nd year.
Kazsur signed a 12 million $ extension and has a 3.5 million $ option bonus, pretty good for a back up/situational starter. Mole
Yawnnn...Finally to say the offense must score 25-30 points a game really puts you in the category of an Underdogged or other trolls with zero credibility. The defense allowed 17.8 pts/game which was 5th last year. That was in year 1 of the rebuilding project. We are now in year 2 with another good looking draft and 2nd year of cohesiveness. You should go home dude. It is clear you are bitter and probably a Philadelphia Eagles fan who is still trying to figure out what Mcnabb/Andy Reid were doing on that final drive in the Super Bowl.
