Cooks was a pussy...he wasn't worth keeping. Jones wanted top dollar. BB was never going to overpay for him. Ditto Flowers.John, we are talking about second contracts to players in their prime - Jones, Flowers, Cooks. He also made no effort to replace Edelman who was falling apart before our eyes. He never replaced Hernandez and never drafted or acquired a replacement for Gronk. We did not have a true #1 receiver after he let Cooks go. So how exactly did he push the bill to help Brady's aging window? The roster was bare which is what we saw in 2018 right up until this past off-season when we spent $150 mil to try to face lift our bottom third roster.
Paying guys you drafted and developed who then led the league in sacks is terrible roster management.Cooks was a pussy...he wasn't worth keeping. Jones wanted top dollar. BB was never going to overpay for him. Ditto Flowers.
BB did have a unlucky streak of drafting for a few straight years, yes. But, 6 rings...
I agree that BB doesn't hit on every single draft pick...or even bothers to draft decent WR's. Yup. But, he's still the GOAT though.Paying guys you drafted and developed who then led the league in sacks is terrible roster management.
If he didn't want to pay them then fine. But he didn't replace them either which is why our roster was upside down in 2018.
Of course it was Caserio with our worst WR pick of the last 20 years. And not Bill who controls every single detail in Foxboro. But he told Caserio you go ahead and make our first round WR selection. I'll step aside.At least Caserio is out of NE. He picked Harry.
Malcolm Mitchell. Sony Michel.
Both had one good season before they were busts due to injury. If these are your best examples of Bill's drafting you are making my point.Malcolm Mitchell. Sony Michel.
Two rookies Bill Belichick drafted, without whom the Patriots would not have won Super Bowls. Both of which were within the last 6 or 7 years.
LOL. Rival fans tend to love their QBs. I have to say it is interesting to me that he continues to post here given the board has moved on to Mac Jones. He obviously still wants to discuss Brady because Mahomes is actually chasing him. I fault the Tampa Bay Bucs forums for being so awful for why he is here. I have no issue if he wants to post here on the Brady forum as I would love to continue to shove Brady in his face all day.Should we have a Patrick Mahomes is the greatest ever to walk the earth thread on this forum? That way Hogfarmer can post his hero worshiping on this forum, and not continue to pollute threads on the main forum.
Perhaps we should get permission for Mazz to do that?
Just a suggestion.
