I'm sick of whiny, ignorant fans.
I was pretty happy with the Pats first 2 games...then I go and read a message board, I guess it's my own fault.
Btch and moan, btch and moan.
Obviously every good player should want to play for the Pats, and the league should probably remove salary cap and roster restrictions so the Pats, and Pats alone, can operate at a level that some of these fans EXPECT.
Want better WRs? Tell me who goes? Spikes? Mayo? Hightower? Some OLineman? Wilfork? McCourty? Ridley? Vereen? Oh, no, right...Dobson should just magically be AJ Green or someone.
At some point, the roster gets turned over and you go with YOUNG PLAYERS. Brady showed up with Brown and Glenn, got Branch and Givens, then a bad 06, then got Moss, Welker, Hernandez and Gronk. Seriously? And people are going to fking complain?
It seriously sickens me. I never thought New England fans would turn into such a whiny, entitled, complaining bunch of ignorant clowns.
Turn on your system of choice, modify the rosters as you see fit, and stop polluting the message boards.
Where ya been? Was looking for you to play fantasy football but you went missing. Glad to see you back.
I just need to know.. How much influence do you think Josh McD had on BB going with all the young receivers? How much on letting Welker walk and bringing in Amendola? We have had several Rams wr walk through the doors and last I checked the Rams were never any good with these players who came here. Thoughts on that?
I honestly don't think it was influence one way or the other...it was time, and worked out that way. Just like with the LBers, it's probably a few years overdue, but on a team as continually successful as the Pats...it's hard to turn over any position given your draft position.
Also, everyone knows the Pats don't pay at the top of the scale, so FAs really need to WANT to be here, sometimes with no results (looking at YOU Ocho).
Another also...veterans have had very mixed results in NE. Some have done well, most have not. Put someone like Stallworth on both sides of that list.
As far as all the Rams...I Think it's the same as all the FL players. BB has people who's opinion he obviously trusts, and goes with. I think there was a familiarity that made some things seem like a good idea. But, the fact is not much money or resources was given up for any of them, so I don't see a real issue. Amendola is the one exception, but he's a unique case because his previous injuries looked flukey, but after a point it is what it is. And he's undeniably talented, as everyone saw week 1. In that same vein, maybe I should finally stop waiting for Hart Lee Dykes to get totally healthy.
Thanks for thinking about me for football, I saw the thread and considered it, but I just don't have enough time to make it fun. My lack of time led to a collapse in my baseball money league that even the 2011 Sox would laugh at.
