Keep dreaming LITP, the pats will never reach what the Steelers of the 70's did!

Patriots have won 3 of the last five Super Bowls. Even if they don't win it this year, that will make it 3 out of 6, which you say is still on target to match and overtake the 70's Steelers. The 70's Steelers won 4 out of six. Looks like a missed target to me.

Deion Branch's worth aside, if Kraft is sitting on all this cash under the cap, why the hell isn't he signed by now? Brady has every right to be pissed, especially since he took less money last season likely to help the team retain it's core. And people had the gall to knock the Rooneys for being cheap - what do you call this?

A tightwad of a miser.

Personally, I like Bob Kraft and think he ranks in the top tier of NFL management, but I must admit that I am shocked over this revelation.

Imho, he should have to donate a bazillion blocks of cheese to feed the hungry of the world since he now has all of that extra moola sticking out of his pocket.

Maybe they trade for Ashley Lelie and trade away Branch.

Just had a thought here. Could Bob Kraft's middle name be McClatchey or Nutter?

Don't know, but it's eerily similar to what they're doing!

A bit of research wouldnt go amiss.

For the umpteenth time - Bob Kraft has nothing at all to do with processed cheese.

Quote:
Robert and his wife Myra have donated millions of dollars to all sorts of Israeli, Jewish and non-Jewish charities. He has visited Israel many times and built a football stadium which is called Kraft Stadium in Jerusalem there is a league it has 33 teams and 500+ players. There is a rumor that he said Shehechiyanu when the Patriots won the Super Bowl in 2002. Robert?s wife Myra is also Jewish and is involved in charity to the Jews that are needy and is very involved in Hadassah Hospital. Robert is the primary shareholder of Carmel Container Systems, Israel's largest packaging plant. In 1997, he invested $40 million in a factory in Caesarea in order to provide his company, which employs 700 people, with the most advanced technology available. Kraft has an Israeli passport and so does his wife. Robert and Myra have been working to make a sister city relationship strong between Haifa and Boston. Robert and Myra helped renovate an afterschool program for Ethiopian immigrants. The Robert K. Kraft Family Center for Jewish Student Life located at Columbia University is a study hall primarily for Jews who attend the school

You missed the point again! This is becoming a habit. You may need to see a doctor, Dr. Feelgood or Dr. givemecommonsense!
