That's a good line, there, bud. I would say:
(1) The Pats are highly resistant to giving out long-term contracts. They'll cut anybody, short of Brady. A player is lucky to get a 2nd contract with them, and their organization doesn't get emotionally attached to players.

(2) Belicik and his staff are supreme evaluators of talent, and they always know where to get new guys (Packers are similar). Look at all the key injuries/events NE had this year - Hernandez, Wilfork, lost Welker than Amendola was out a good part of the year, friggin' Gronk's injuries. They just kept bringing guys in, and made the AFC champeenship. They win.

So, if Gettleman is making some hard decisions to move us toward that model, I'm good with it. But only time will tell.

Compare that to the Baltimore Ravens, who have him on a 3 year deal for something like 11.5 million. So yeah. The market agreed. Smith wasnt worth keeping at 7 million a year.

It was strictly a business arrangement. Not a gaffe.
you can say this till you are blue in the face but that guy will never listen

Except the NFL did everything in it's power to make sure the Taints weren't going to be moved after Katrina including financial help in rebuilding, and how do the Taints repay the NFL they have a massive bounty system that targeted every major star on each team they played. Not to mention Breesus saying the bounties didn't happen even after overwhelming evidence to the contray. **** the Saints, Brees, and Payton.

Like I said earlier in the thread, Matthews had a pretty good combine, running a 4.46. I'd be ok with any of these guys, at #1.

I understand what you're saying, but bringing in a player who actively contributed to bounty gate and made a blatant charge at Steve Smith presumably with intent to hurt him after he caught a TD pass (I think it was in Charlotte) doesn't seem like a good thing to do. Sharper probably has a lot of trust to earn in that locker room.

I honestly think G-man plans to get his receivers/offensive linemen through this year's draft. You get decent talent for real cheap. Plus, he'll probably grab some scraps after the pre-season (the players that don't make the roster).

The fans care more about that than the players do. They did it cause they were offered to get paid for it. It wasnt personal, the locker room will be fine.

Def looks like we'll be going WR/OT in May, unless something blockbuster goes down between now and then.

Man, I loved Smitty's fiery spirit, but he wasn't producing at the levels we needed. We just flat weren't that good at WR last year. And as far as Lafell goes, he led the teams with drops, and it seemed like every one was in a clutch situation for a first down (unless I missed some where it would have been a TD). I did think that Ginn developed into a legit receiver here, and liked the danger he presented as a return guy, but that's how it goes with one year contracts - some guys prove themselves, some don't. And the ones who do get paid. As bad as things look right now, my gut tells me we'll end up being as good or better at wideout next year, when it's all said and done. But replacing Gross is a much bigger hurdle.

Probably right. But I don't see any WR in the draft contributing immediately other then Watkins. So we're throwing this season away if this is the plan.

Deepest WR draft in recent memory and you don't see anyone that can contribute immediately other than Watkins?

Don't think the Panthers have ever made the playoffs two years in row.
