You act as the fans on this board are the only ones that act like this. Get a clue, they aren't. I've looked at the Colts, Chargers and Redskins boards extensively and every fan, everywhere, feels passionate and moans about free agency. It has nothing to do with being spoiled. That would mean, every year, we make a huge FA splash and we are mad because now we aren't. These fans love the team and want to see big moves. It may be unrealistic, but excuse us for opening our mouths and expressing ourselves, we thought this was an open forum, not a self righteous, team, butt kissing exercise. I admit, we don't have to act like the sky is falling, but please let us be passionate.

and I am exercising my right to disagree with the sky is falling group posting on here. so I'm self righteous because I don't agree with you. Frankly, peoples post on this board show their football I.Q. I expected more from patriot fans. That was my mistake. you are correct all fans get nuts for their team, but to act like the patriots are done because we didn't sign any big name free agents day one is a joke. maybe I could have been more tactful in my approach, but the naysayers outnumbered the realists. You don't win championships with overpriced marginal free agents. The patriots made one big splash with A.D a few years ago. So as fans he shouldn't be surprised they didn't sign peppers or dansby. With the holes the patriots have the best move is to use the draft and hit on these picks, sign some experience vets and have faith your second year guys chung, butler, brace, mckenzie step it up. otherwise your throwing good money after bad money. Dunta robinson,peppers and dansby are not worth the price tag. Those organizations with feel the sting for years to come. know I love dansby, but hes a tackler and not a sack specialist. thus we don't need a 40 million tackler.
anyways, its good to question your team and discuss it with other fans, but expect to be called out when you make outlandish claims or statements that are obviously that of a fairweather fan or a fan with a small football I.Q. to many people on this board who understand football. Your going to get called out. deal with it or learn your football.
