    Would tanking in 2020 been a better option for QB draft position?

    Every team that didn't make the playoffs would have been better off by tanking the season or a game here and there (except maybe the Texans).

    I think it's hard to judge Belichick for paying to acquire free agents from other teams by comparing those contracts with contracts that other players took to stay with their existing teams. Just as we applaud Belichick when Andrews turns down bigger deals to stay with the Patriots, we have...

    It turns out that the cherry on top was the draft picks we were comped along the way.

    Pats FA Day 2: Shock and Awe

    I think there's enough potential to hold on if they don't get the appropriate trade compensation. Harry hasn't really had a real off season yet in his career.

    Pats Sign TE Hunter Henry

    With the moves they have made, I think they built this team not just for this year but for the next 3 or 4 years. Similarly, the constructed this team so that it eould thrive with Jimmy G. if he becomes available in a trade, or so that it works with a rookie QB if they draft one this year...

    NFL FA Frenzy Game Thread

    Going into today, I was expecting the Patriots to sign a bunch of players to one or two year deals with the idea that the players would want a chance to be a free agent again when the salary cap went back up. I wonder if, instead, the Patriots took advantage of this year's outlier salary cap to...

    How Many Top-Market FAs Will NE Sign?

    It's a little more nuanced than that though, isn't it? Cam Newton's contract has a base of $5 million and includes incentives that bring it up to $14 million. Would that contract count if he wasn't being re-signed? Does anyone consider Cam a top market free agent signing?

    How Many Top-Market FAs Will NE Sign?

    I think they try to cover all of their roster needs through free agency and trades before the draft so that they can better play the board and make additional trades during the draft. I think that they spend most of their available money. My biggest issue is determining what is meant by...

    Pats Roster Planning: Defense

    I respect your opinion a great deal, but I feel like the Patriots are kind of in a good spot. Tons of salary cap space in an off-season where most of the league is in a serious cap crunch. The Patriot Way, to me, was always about roster construction where they refrained from overspending on...

    The Nation's Tears Are Still Here

    I get being upset about the refs. I mean, I'm still upset about some of the non-calls from the loss to the Foles Eagles, but I wouldn't put last night's game in the top five worst officiated super bowls. Does anyone remember that game the Steelers won?

    For the record, I have enjoyed Mountain Dew. The Mexican version with real sugar, out of a can, is delicious.
