  1. Funny the guy that signs is the one with the "bad attitude"

     

    Yeah, that's what I thought.

     

    I just hope it was more like: "Oh, boy, I can't ******* wait to get on the field! Let me at 'em!" and not: "Just give me the damn contract to sign so I can get this over with."

     

    It'd be great if this was a sign of a new-found motivation and drive for him.

     

     

    He has a rap for be lazy, but not when it came to snatching up that money.

     

    Or it could be this. ^^

  2. Kraft's entire statement presented below with no comment.

     

    New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft issued the following statement Wednesday regarding the Wells report:

    “When I addressed the media at the Super Bowl on January 26 -- over 14 weeks ago -- I stated that I unconditionally believed that the New England Patriots had done nothing inappropriate in this process or in violation of the NFL rules and that I was disappointed in the way the league handled the initial investigation. That sentiment has not changed.

    “I was convinced that Ted Wells’ investigation would find the same factual evidence supported by both scientific formula and independent research as we did and would ultimately exonerate the Patriots. Based on the explanations I have heard and the studies that have been done, I don’t know how the science of atmospheric conditions can be refuted or how conclusions to the contrary can be drawn without some definitive evidence.

    “What is not highlighted in the text of the report is that three of the Colts’ four footballs measured by at least one official were under the required psi level. As far as we are aware, there is no comparable data available from any other game because, in the history of the NFL, psi levels of footballs have never been measured at halftime, in any climate. If they had been, based on what we now know, it is safe to assume that every cold-weather game was played with under-inflated footballs. As compelling a case as the Wells Report may try to make, I am going to rely on the factual evidence of numerous scientists and engineers rather than inferences from circumstantial evidence.

    “Throughout the process of this nearly four-month investigation, we have cooperated and patiently awaited its outcome. To say we are disappointed in its findings, which do not include any incontrovertible or hard evidence of deliberate deflation of footballs at the AFC Championship Game, would be a gross understatement. In addition, given our level of cooperation throughout the process, I was offended by the comments made in the Wells Report in reference to not making an individual available for a follow-up interview. What the report fails to mention is that he had already been interviewed four times and we felt the fifth request for access was excessive for a part-time game day employee who has a full-time job with another employer.

    “While I respect the independent process of the investigation, the time, effort and resources expended to reach this conclusion are incomprehensible to me. Knowing that there is no real recourse available, fighting the league and extending this debate would prove to be futile. We understand and greatly respect the responsibility of being one of 32 in this league and, on that basis, we will accept the findings of the report and take the appropriate actions based on those findings as well as any discipline levied by the league.”

     

    That smug, delusional, cradle-robbing, self-righteous, god-damn son of a bitch.

  3. Yes! He is low down piece of sh*t. He is a cheater... But I can't really go as far to say he isn't a good QB. Just is a better QB with his cheating ways.

    But, is he? Is he good? I mean, I get that he's cerebral and knows the game well, but how long as he been cheating to make it easier for him to throw and the receivers to catch? We've all seen that combine picture with his flabby ass. How do we know is arm isn't complete sh*t? and he's been cheating all these years to make up for it? Is having a good brain the only qualification for being a good QB?

     

    If these are true, and he's been doing this for years, than there is only one conclusion that I can come to.

     

    Tom Brady is Chad Pennington, but with softer balls.

  4. This dynamic is very interesting. Pats fans believe Goodell is screwing them over, but other fans think Goodell is helping the Pats.

     

    Very interesting.

     

    My guess is a fine and maybe a 1 game suspension for Brady. That's it.

     

    Wow, they think Goodell is screwing THEM over? How? By NOT giving them a free pass? By NOT ignoring any accusation of cheating against them? Do they have such a victim mentality that any accusation against them is a direct insult to their mothers? Do they think that any accusation should be ignored because it's just "haters hating" and it's not fair to them to tarnish their image? Do they think they should get special treatment like the little bullied boy who can't defend himself against the bigger, meaner kids? There hasn't even been any punishments yet! There probably won't be! But Pats fans really think Goodell--of all people in the NFL--is screwing THEM? Really? Please.

     

    By the way, not yelling at you or questioning you. I believe you. Just venting. :happy0069:

  5. He kept Graves who was supposedly Idzik's mentor and right hand.  Not sure what to make of that. 

     

    Apparently, he only deals with the contracts, so I wouldn't worry too much about it.

     

     

    Nevermind. Ninja'd.

    He kept the 2 guys that handle contract creation.  No issues keeping guys that know how to build good contracts.  Plus its the administrative side which is easier to retain.

     

     

    I understand he is decent at cap skills/good relationship w/agents etc and thats what mac is using him for

     

    "In his position as Arizona Cardinals General Manager, Graves was responsible for all facets of the Cardinals’ football operations. He served as the team’s primary contract negotiator in addition to overseeing salary-cap management, and consulting on other business aspects of the football operation."

  6. Tanny - treated draft draft picks after round 3 like garbage to be tossed away.  Dominated by the head coach, sparse number of picks lead to no depth/development in the long run.

     

    Idzik - Actually had not a bad concept of how to operated, accumulate picks, use cap judiciously.  However poor background in scouting and the actual draft picks were lousy in many cases.  Also a total lack of the ability to make moves quickly if necessary.

     

    MacCagnan - Values draft picks but is not afraid to use them to get players, especially if it is a bargain.  Extensive scouting background and a plan for addressing needs and developing.  The ability to move fast and without fear within the draft.  The one pick trade up to ensure they got Petty, getting a more established RB on the cheap.  The trade down, though panned by a number of posters added some valuable picks and more trade flexibility.

     

    MacCagnan also is humble enough and realistic enough to know that not all picks will turn out.  The results will be what is important going down the road but I like the make up of our new GM far better than the previous two.

     

    Well said.
