95% of fans are pumped about the acquisition.

Most of us think that the contract is water tight and low risk - the 1 year nature means that, even if you don't buy into the 'New Randy Moss' talk, he will at least be motivated to put up a good performance to earn his next and probably last big contract.

Most fans are very confident that the FA pick ups, including Moss, have put us over the top in terms of challenging for the SB this year - its nice for Brady to have some genuine quality to throw to this year.

The New England (mostly Boston) media reaction has been typically scathing of the move and has led to alot of angry Patriots fans - I don't think I know of a single group of reporters who are more determined to take the negative outlook on everything their 'home' FO does.

Most of us think that Kraft/Pioli/Belichick have earnt a little breathing room when it comes to personnel decisions.

The NY media has been hilarious, big article yesterday about how the Patriots FA moves have been made because of the pressure of hearing the 'Jets footsteps' creeping up behind them in the AFCE (apperently the Moss move was made because they drafted Darrell Revis - despite it being on the cards for months)

Of course, some fans want to give us the SB ring right now - but thats just over excitement.
They've been great for a while now, three Super Bowls' worth of great. But only this season have the New England Patriots become The Show, the must-see team of stars, pretty boys and reformed bad boys. Suddenly, the Patriots are not simply great; they're compelling, fascinating, appearing to be almighty and a touch lawless.
The Patriots didn't bother with swagger to start this NFL season; they went straight to defiant. Either you're one of them or you're about to get crushed.
