Flawless argument. Rolling Eyes


He had Amendola for one game I believe.

Wes Welker press conference right now. He said the hardest part was leaving Brady.

Belichick definitely lets McDaniels run the show. No question.
And that's what scares me, when a McDaniel's has any say. So far their track record IMO stinks. I remember reading that McDaniels gave rave reveiws on a player his brother coached at Minnesota. Brother claimed he was the next super star. They changed their pick at the last minute and took Maroney. That worked out !!!!

***Update***
Quote:
Danny Amendola's five-year #Patriots contract is worth $27.7 million not the originally reported, agent-inflated, $31 million.

Robert Kraft had a lot to say about Welker today:

Quote:
@RapSheet
Robert Kraft says Welker accepted a deal in Denver for less money than Pats offered. Saying Welker's deal in Denver is really 1-year deal


Quote:
@RapSheet
Kraft says Wes Welker says he was their "first choice." Calls Amendola their "alternative." Blames Welker's agent for pricing him too high


Quote:
‏@RapSheet
Kraft says Welker's agent "way over-valued" Wes. Depends on your definition of over-value, I guess. Says that's agent's job. Didnt help Pats


Quote:
@RapSheet
Kraft said the offer to Welker they made would've paid him $8M in the first year. Insinuates Wes may be cut after first year in Denver

Wish he'd just let it go. I did like this nugget though:

Quote:
Ian Rapoport ‏@RapSheet
Robert Kraft says Tom Brady never demanded Wes be signed. Said Brady isn't upset. Also adds, "I don't answer to Tom Brady."

I love that haha

I hope that when Brady retires, Robert Kraft is viewed as the guy people think of when they think of the Patriots. Like an Al Davis or a Jerry Jones.

#Patriots Robert Kraft on Wes Welker's agents: "They overplayed their hand and I think both (Welker) & the Patriots are the losers from it."

Kraft said #Patriots were willing to pay Welker $8M in 2013, which was more than what he received from #Broncos. @SiriusXMNFL

You could hear the angst in Kraft's voice when talking about Welker. Sad to see him go but life goes on in New England

But when people think of Jones or Davis, it's usually in a mocking way.

I love BK, but this idea that "we have restraints" aka a total of $1 million per year just sounds cheap. Sorry, but that is about .8% of your cap You couldn't find another $1 million per year to match? It makes him sound foolish when he says "it takes two sides to make a deal". Not that he's wrong, but to act like they exhausted every resource and he just left anyways bogus. If the pats REALLY wanted WW to stay...everybody with a functioning brain knows they could have coughed up another $1 million per year.

You have to draw the line somewhere. The Pats don't budge often (or ever) from the value they come up for a guy's services. It's how financially disciplined people with limited resources (and the cap is a limiting resource) get by.

Oh, I understand all that. It's just...we're not talking Moss or Branch, where they are millions and millions apart. We're talking $1 million per season.
