charles rogers- lazy, dopehead, backmouths coaches and the team, doesnt give 100%. what were you saying about disrupting locker room chemistry? must suck when your own team proves you wrong.
See above.

Is that the definition of a miser?

it is if hes just spending all that money to build up a property just as an investment or to sell it for a hefty profit. owners like d. snyder and g steinbrenner easilly spend that ammount of money on PAYROLL in an attempt to field the best team possible. in both cases they are usually maxed out every year. you see they are rich and not interrested in saving a penny or concerned about overpaying a kicker or pitcher.

That's right. He's only put up a privately funded stadium, been to 4 SBs, and won three of them. Yeah, a real miser with only himself in mind. The NFL would get down on their knees and beg if it would bring them another owner like Kraft, and a franchise like the Patriots.

stay tuned patfans. john clayton reports belichick LOVES randy moss, and the feelers have already been put out.

and since this never was (and now, most definitely isnt) the case:

We have one of the best RB combo's in the league - why would we be airing out long bombs -
this scenario is much closer to reality than initially thought. moss is a numbers guy though and i still feel he'd do much better with farve in green bay

Randy Moss, Wes Welker, Chad Jackson, Reche Caldwell...certainly an interesting receiving corps.

peter king seems to agree (as im sure mike holmgren does too):

e. I can just feel Mike Holmgren fuming. He's thinking: Last year we let Steve Hutchinson go for $7 million a year, and now $7 million is the going rate for a guard who can walk and chew gum at the same time.

f. I mean it: Mike Holmgren is not happy about this.

Its hard to say whats going on in Moss's head as regards what he wants from his next team.

Does he value catches/yards/TD's over the chance of getting a ring?

I think he definitely would be happier with the playcalling of the Packers - interceptions dont reflect on a receivers numbers and Brett rarely lets 3/4 interception games make him conservative.

I'd be excited to have Moss on the team, because that would mean the Patriots FO were confident he was the right man - howevere im far from convinced that is the case.

I've read all sorts of crazy stuff on the Patriots board with fans desperate to justify Moss's history - he loves the game, yet takes plays off ...contradictory stuff like that...etc etc

The latest wisdom is that the solid vet presense in the Patriots lockerroom could be enough to make Moss see the error of his ways.

Maybe when Schefter brings something a bit more concrete i'll be excited - he seems to have been spot on so far.

On a related note, i've heard strong rumors (stronger than the Moss ones anyway) that Stallworth is very keen to sign a 1 year deal with the Patriots to show them, and the rest of the league what he can do.

Thats probably contingent on the eagles not re-signing him, who I think are his first choice.


Its one to keep an eye on anyway.

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.

clayton just said moss isnt going to the patriots. The reason being they just gave up a second and 7th pick for welker.

yeah he said only if the raiders are dumping him for a 3rd. hard to imagine welker worth a 2nd but moss only worth a third. stallworth is due to visit there today, and ive felt all along if the eagles dont keep him he would wind up a pat. latest words are he has a few strikes against him and may be facing some suspension time for smokin the ganga.

hed be the best wr pats have seen since terry glenn. eagles are stupid to let him go (to any team)
