Default Re: Patriots Submit Offer Sheet to Emmanuel Sanders

The big question here is, if they let Sanders walk, which I think they will do (no way they give in to the Patriots' games- see what I did?- with this little cap room left), will this alter the draft needs?

I mean, Sanders hasn't been awful, but he hasn't been great either. He's shown potential, but that's exactly why you draft someone- because of potential. With an extra third-rounder, the Steelers could potentially replace Sanders's production entirely, if not multiple times over.

I still see Safety as a bigger need in the first round. The team's first priority should be Kenny Vaccaro, unless Austin falls. If they manage to nab Vaccaro, then grabbing a receiver (Woods or Hunter, in my opinion) in the second would be the best course of action (again, in my opinion). Then, what do they do with that extra third-rounder? I don't see grabbing another receiver that high as being something necessary, given that the Steelers still have a pretty effective lineup in Brown, Cotchery, Burress, and the drafted player.

I say stick to the already-determined course of action, whether the front office's philosophy was to grab a WR high or not.

I'm still down for Brian Schwenke with the extra third rounder.

Sanders was buried beneath Wallace.
He'll have a 1000+ yard season at New England all day.

No way is Belichick giving up a third round pick for a WR for one year. If he made that offer it means Belichick plans on keeping him.

I'll gladly take the third round pick. I'll never forget how big he came up for us in 2010.

Now he Seems injury prone and has a case of the drops and fumblias. I'm sure after a full season under his belt he'll develope into the playmaker I thought he would be his rookie season.

Is this sarcasm?


Our defense got us the 8 in the left column and our shitbag offense got us the 8 in the right column.

Yup. Interesting Mexican standoff the Pats, Stillers and Sanders are in.

I know we have not seen much of Gilreath but I do not see why he couldn't step in and put up numbers that Sanders put up.

It is not like throwing in a rookie. He is young, knows our system, looked great in preseason...give the kid a shot! I think if they let Sanders walk, this means they have faith in what Gilreath can bring. We will see....

Sanders has shown flashes, but he has also shown that he can not stay healthy. I like him, but ill pass.

Sanders may very well thrive in NE, but the value he will net the Steelers is far more than what he was likely to produce.

A win-win move for both PIT and NE.

Pats get a new weapon to deploy while the Steelers get a chance to find their next Hines Ward/Mike Wallace.
