l can see going after Jones but sanders, don't waste your time Denver k.c. Or whoever else want who want to waste your money, go right ahead here is what is in store for you, dropped touchdown passes injuries with bad feet and an overall lack of consistent play

Seems the Pats should go for the best combination of TE and NT (or NT and TE) they can in the first two rounds. If all the QBs are taken early then could be wise to trade out of first round slot about 10-12 places and stockpile another third or more. Will still need a center and a DE to go along with some LB backups. The team that trades for Mallet would be wise yet it would also make the Pats stronger unless Coach Bill decides to waste another early pick on an unknown as his his way.
With a front seven that can run stuff and defend the pass, to go along with a back end that can shut down receivers, the Pats defense could be a top 3-5 league-wise. Add in Brady and whatever they can piece together will give them a chance. Even last year when Brady had nothing to speak of, he still managed the third best offense in the league. Key for Pats is to stay healthy. A healthy NE team makes it to the AFC Championship game minimally. What's that sound? Could be Montana hearing footsteps, and Elway falling out of his first place tie in SBs reached.
There is a system that maximizes draft points utilization and it has been given to the Pats previously. Can only hope they understand it and use it this time around. Teams that pick prior to Pats will set the stage for Pats to pick wisely and make their season or screw it up with their trend of off the wall decisions. Let's hope Bill and team NE does their homework this offseason.

Makes sense, go for the best. It helped in the Super Bowl with Randy Moss on the roster right.

Trade for Mallet because he has done what in the NFL to prove he is a worthy QB. Makes sense, Janitard should be the Raiders new GM.

Neither have any college QB done anything in the NFL to prove their worthiness. Must be another view then right? How about three years of training under Pats coaching staff and Brady. Not to mention his cannon for an arm.
Last guy to go that route (Hoyer) had a winning record (.750 winning pct) for of all teams, Cleveland. The guy before him, Cassell, made it to the ProBowl with 28TD/7Int season. The trend is your friend. Learn it, and watch for it.
Those jobs go to the guys best connected not best suited for success. No doubt I would be an upgrade. Thanks for your recommendation. Lived up there before, not my first choice of locations. And since I'm financially set for life and relatively stress free, why take on stress when I can stay here with you guys and create stress for those who behave badly.
The only thing necessary for evil to progress/expand is for good men to sit back and do nothing (paraphrased). Your bad comments give name a soapbox to re-educate the masses. Thanks for the opportunity. Even Hitler gave us two good things. First he serves as a bad example, as do you guys, your just not at his level yet, and second, he taught us how not to wear a mustache.:)

I think it was an acl for Brady, and one of his breast implants ruptured. I wonder why Belitis keeps letting these well trained backup QBs go and replacing them if they are sooooo good. Maybe because his system allows QBs to thrive and he knows he will never see them making a run for the Super Bowl anyway on another roster, because they suck. I mean I lost count how many times Cassel has reached the post season since leaving NE, bwahhhahahaha!

First, Cassel never made it to the postseason as a Pat but he did as a Chief.
Second, if you understood even a little football you would know why after 2-3 years the Pats and any other team wants to trade their backup. Good teams use the backup QB position as a training sight in order to trade them and get a high draft pick since the guy won't be starting anyway and he will be due a non-rookie contract after year 4, which will cause CAP problems. It's trade after years 2-3 or release after year 4. Might as well get something for the guy when you can, if you can.
And Hoyer was 3-1 with the lowly Browns, while Cassell made the ProBowl with the Chiefs.
Lastly, your comment about someone else having breast implants only outs yourself as the one with them. That's why they are on your mind. Either that or you are just plain mean and nasty just plain through which is kind of weird cause you are yellow too, Irving. 140 can think faster than you but you are looking for 142.:):D :)

I know, we stuck it to the Chiefs and suckered Pioli take Cassel if we threw in Vrabel as well. Then they signed him for six-years,$62.7 million contract that included $28 million in guaranteed money. All for one playoff loss and an alternate selection to the Pro Bowl. I'm still laughing at that trade. The key isn't to save Cap money by releasing these under paid back up QB's the key is finding some sucker to trade with. Luckily Pioli was with the Patriots previously so I knew how to bate him in to the trade. No other NFL team would bite on the deal.

The end result was the Chiefs had the worst record in the NFL for interceptions (20) in 2012 (Cassel threw 12 and Quinn threw 8). The Chiefs had the worst record in the NFL in offensive passing as well.

Unfortunately we couldn't find any suckers for Hoyer so we just cut his ass. But Bill tells me Hoyer will follow the same career path as Cassel, and never will see the Super Bowl anyway not to mention the HOF.

Appreciate your leg work. Sounds a lot like the majority of the league. Romo and Stafford and Cutler and Vick and so on and so on. Many have bigger and longer contracts with little to show for it. Few QBs emerge as HoFers. Only two guaranteed the Hall are Brady and Peyton, and that's after the fact. Early on no one knows. It is always a crap shoot. Many had Ryan Leaf over Peyton, and Smith over Rodgers. They were obviously wrong but no one knew back then. It was all supposition. Mallet at least has a stronger arm than every one in the league and three years of work in an accepted quality system, as well as being trained by Belichick and Brady. That's more than any of the college kids can say. Not asking you to agree with my position only to understand it. Mallet's downside is his cost relative to a rookie contract teams can sign college kids to. He also will have three less years to play as age creeps up on him. At least his body isn't banged up for those first three years.
The move absolutely benefits the original team moving their backup QB and getting a 2nd or 3rd in the process. A good draft selection process should equate to a 2nd or 3rd rounder making it on the roster and often as a starter. Trading a backup for a starter seems a great move if you can get it done. With many teams needing a QB and few available in the draft, there is a chance that someone may take a flyer on Mallet. Who knows, maybe he will approximate a sixth rounder who is on his way to the HoF. Just to mess with you, my guess is that he will come out somewhere between Leaf and Manning. Good guess, huh? Probably a bit better than Cassell but not as good as Cutler.

I'm still laughing at this trade too. I doubt no one will ever trade for one of our back ups ever again after seeing that fiasco.

Not to be overly critical but if you haven't yet learned the basics, how can you be trusted to know that which is more difficult? It's "I doubt anyone" not "no one".
