why because he would actually get some respect and put in a position to really win? its why guys go to the pats, they are competitive year in and year out. and please save the crap about them only being good because of video. its old and tired. thomas has been adimant about going to a team with a real shot at winning. he and the rest of the normal world know the pats arent a fluke, they are in it every year and he deserves to be put on a team that can at least give him a shot at sniffing a superbowl, which miami has never given him.

As much as it would kill me to see Zach play for the Pats I think he deserves a chance at winning a super bowl. I would rather see him do that in Dallas, but if he decides to go to New England I am going to have to root for him. Zach has always been one of my heroes and it saddens me to see him leave Miami. I am glad he is going to get another opportunity to play.

At least Miami doesn't feel the need to cheat.

If I were a Patriots fan, I would be worried about the trend of the team's roster. They are VERY old on defense, and the signing of Taylor will not change that. If they keep adding these old free agents looking to win a championship in the last years of their career it takes a roster spot away from a drafted player or a much younger free agent. Take a look at the number of their players age 30 and over:

Kyle Brady
Tom Brady
Troy Brown
Tedy Bruschi
Roosevelt Colvin
Heath Evans
Kevin Faulk
Chris Hanson
Rodney Harrison
Russ Hochstein
Larry Izzo
Matt Light
Sammy Morris
Randy Moss
Steven Neal
Lonie Paxton
Chad Scott
Junior Seau
Adalius Thomas
Mike Vrabel

Most of these players are "impact" players for the team. The Taylor deal doesn't make sense in the long run with a list of aging players like this. And yes, I am aware they are mostly all performing now, but look five years down the road. Where will the Patriots be then? Third or fourth place in the AFC East, that's my guess.

The pats use who they use for 2-3 yrs then move on(except for a select few).........obviously you guys don't know the pats have the best offseason moves and aquisition year after year.....they don't put up huge money b/c they'll find an equivilant to replace you.

Look at their first and second SB win roster and this past years....you'll see....

Pats will most likely pick up Gholston or Keith Rivers to help their line backing core anyway..........they both work great in 3-4 setups and have huge potential.....

Seymour on one side with Gholston on the other would be great.

Two or three years, then get rid of them? Really? How about Tom Brady, Troy Brown, Tedy Bruschi, Richard Seymour, Kevin Faulk, et al. Impact players that have been there for a long time. The fact is, they just don't infuse enough young talent.

I wouldn't judge too harshly on what the Pats do, They have been a force in the AFC for 7 years now, so its working for them, they way they go about getting their players.

Thanks for stating and showing those select few I was talking about....... and your ignorance.

What does that say about the rest of the league if everybody believes the pats are old but yet still couldn't beat them??

Like Bruschi, Vrabel, Seau said.......when we play good we're "experienced and smart", when we paly bad we're "old".

"NY got lucky?"
As someone who is partial to neither team it was exceptionally obvious that NY absolutely socked NE in the mouth. They didn't get lucky, they gave them an old fashioned beat down. As NE was averaging something near 19 points per game, it's fair to say they got shellac'd.

I believe that I mentioned earlier that they were indeed producing. I'm talking about 4-5 years from now. When they are no longer playing "experienced and smart", but just "old" or not at all.

Their current method of acquiring talent will catch up to them in the long run, that's all I'm saying here.

Lets be honest... NY got lucky. Even playing like complete crap, we had the game won in the last 2 minutes.

If it wasn't for the "look what I found" catch, you all would be hammering for them to release Eli. You didn't beat the Patriots, you got a February X-mas Present.

But liek the famous saying goes... "I would rather be lucky than good".

the giants are nowhere near a better team than the pats. just look at their record in a mediocre conference. they had literally one more play than the pats and it was a play that noone in the world ever expected eli to make. it was a hail mary pass and an extremely lucky catch. thats why they got the chance at the end zone. noway you are that stupid to think the giants are more talented at 10-6 in a weak conference against the opposition they had compared to the 16-0 pats against way better competition.

You bring up conference strength? You think the AFC East is the toast of the NFL? Please. Sure the Pats went 6-0, but look at the conference. The least competitive conference in the NFL.

The Giants got lucky... You know it, I know it and the world knows it. But that is part of football. The Giants defense played almost perfect and that is what it takes to stay close but lets compare it...

The Patriots picked the Super Bowl to play their worst game, they had a QB with an ankle injury, a corner back playing with a torn lig in his shoulder, the world against them, controversy galore, a team drooling to destroy them and through all of it with 2:42 left in the game they took the lead...

Then on the giants last possession... Samuel missed an easy interception, Harrison misses one, the D line somehow lets Eli escape and then he throws up a watermelon and only by the grace of lady luck he makes the catch....

Yeah... If thats not luck, nothing else is. The best team of all time lost the Super Bowl... THat, is a fact.
