Looking at the Patriots 2024

For a guy who scolds us not to make assumptions because we're not inside Gillette, you're making an awful lot of assumptions and expounding lots of misinformation with this post. :coffee:

There's a reason the Patriots have been last in cash spending over the last 10 years and it's not Belichick.
Cash is needed for FA signing bonuses and guarantees. For your information, BB isn't the one who controlled the cash available. That was Robert Kraft. BB complained about it 3 yrs ago.
Kraft's penuriousness is the sole reason the Patriots were last in cash spending over the last 10 years. BB did pretty well to win 3 SBs over that time, don't you think?

Why don't you mention the 2 year, $50M contract offered to Brady in the summer of 2019 which he turned down?
Why don't you mention the "no franchise tag" clause Brady insisted upon to play in 2019?

The night of Kraft's and Brady's tearful meeting, Kraft presented Brady a 1 yr $30M contract to stay. Brady turned it down; he had made up his mind to leave. You don't mention
that, either.

These contracts I mention, the franchise tag clause and the Pats being last in cash spending have all been reported by the media yet you wanted to straighten us out.
I don't think so.
All facts Folks
 
If Bill traded Jones after his rookie season, everyone would have lost their minds on this board and across NE. If not for Chase, Mac would have won ROY.
I would have been confused as hell and wouild have severely quesitoned BB as I have never questioned him excpet for the Malcolm Butler benching. But if Mac followed even close to a similar progression...congression???...the last two years in his new team, by now I think I'd be just fine with it.

I blamed the play calling for 2022 but 2023 was such a collapse to bad throws, bad decisions, bad reads, bad technique, and the way the players responded to Zappe coming in that I think there is a lot to be said for Mac not taking coaching and wanting to be one of the guys rather than the leader. In all of sports, the QB is rather unique in the necessity of the QB being a leader.

It is rather ironic I suppose that a QB has ended Bill’s career in New England and rendered him unemployed.

I'm predicting that Bill Belichick will be HC of Jags for '25.

Finally an article that shows Pats fans should be very happy with Eliot Wolf as our GM (whether he's named it or not)
This is a good informative read.

Holy shit, you took his pants down.
 
More on Highsmith now that I talked to, oh how should I put it, 'A source close to Highsmith and familiar with his thinking'.

He thinks he's coming in to be the GM.
