    What info do you wish you could get out of Belichick?

    All correct but the Patriots went after him before Gronk's announcement as well but Cook didn't want to play second fiddle. Here's one article but I remember multiple reports at the time.

    What info do you wish you could get out of Belichick?

    Actually they went after Cook before Gronk retired. One of the reasons Cook chose NO is because Gronk was still in NE. After Gronk's announcement, they tried to Cook to change his mind to no avail.

    What Do You Want For This Patriots Season

    AFC East title. Stidham to show he's the guy. Harry, rookies and other young guys to show development. Especially want to see Uche and Duggar become major contributors.

    RD5 #13/#159: K Justin Rohrwasser, Marshall

    Leading up to the draft a few years ago there was a report that the Patriots were one of only a few teams that did not subscribe to the big national scouting services. They wanted their scouts to look at players without any preconceived notions.

    Not likely. He was projected to go 2nd round in most that I've seen

    Grade the trade

    There's a good chance one of those guys will be there which is why I gave it a B. If they make another trade down with one of the "top" prospects on the board then that gets a separate grade. I do like Murray and thought he was a good fit so that gives me some pause.

    On to retirement?

    Exactly. Gronk has said he would have considered coming back to NE If Brady stayed so I don't think it is "clear" they were looking to "escape" Belichick.

    Gronk to TB (Tom Brady): A Gronking to Remember

    So what grade would you give it? I am happy with the trade and wouldn't expect much more if a return if any. I think the return is pretty much what you would expect. As someone posted earlier or in the other thread, it is a little more than the Lynch trade. Return seems about average...

    Gronk to TB (Tom Brady): A Gronking to Remember

    C grade seems about right. 139th pick. Pretty mediocre average trade.

    2020 NFL: Offseason News and Notes

    I'd be surprised if this was their first test. And sounds like they'll need a few more. Not a big deal. Still I'll be expecting a few issues come draft time. Makes me more excited to watch than usual.

    2020 Pats: QB Edition

    I know what you are saying but we'll likely never know. Fact is Brady was under contract for one year. They hadn't made an extension yet so of course Belichick knew it was a possibility Brady wouldn't be back and off course he would be planning for the possibility. Heck, many would argue...

    2020 Pats: QB Edition
