Default Re: Randy Moss To The Patriots?

I don't mind admitting Randy Moss has, so far, proven my worries about his 'personality' were off the mark.

By the same token, my main concern was of the 'trade value' put forward by the OP - a 1st round pick and our No.2 QB - I thought that was way too much and so it proved.

A 4th rounder was a much more acceptable risk.

I tend to trust the moves the Patriots FO make, bearing in mind their recent track record in personnel moves is second to none - as I stated in this very thread.

So, sure I was excited when I heard the trade news on the 2nd day of the draft - I thoght he would offer a nice variation to back teams off the LOS - I didn't really suspect that he would be by far the most impressive WR in the league by week 4.

I don't think I was alone there, though.
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.
