    I agree.

    Drafts, free agents, trades - all are ways of building a team.

    What counts is the final product that's on the field. Since 2001, Pats have been competitive, and have seldom been on...

    I won't bore you with a long list of draftees that are either still on the Patriots or that are starters on other teams.

    Don't want to crash your server by tying up all that disk space. :D

    The reason I bumped the thread up was to get your viewpoint on whether the officials were biasing their calls toward the Patriots.

    Yes, I know, the Pats are cheating cheaters who cheat.

    But you do realize that Harbaugh went onto to the field specifically to get a flag thrown?

    Would you say that officials had an effect on the game yesterday? In particular, did they cause the Patriots to win because they made questionable calls that helped the Pats?

    Haven't seen anything, and probably won't until after the season is over (in February, I hope!).

    If I see something, I'll try to remember to post it.

    It will be interesting to see what happens with Ayers. He's happy in NE, and the Pats are happy to have him.

    But when it comes to negotiations, Pats will not overpay. They'll establish a number...

    Just my two cents, but it looks to me as if your both your lines need more talent.

    Protect your QB, and get after the other team's QB. Everybody else looks good when you do that.

    I hope you're right.

    Would love to get through a game without Browner racking up multiple DPIs.

    Lots of NE fans feel this way.

    I don't. I think the Pats showed in last year's game in Baltimore that they can handle the Ravens (41-7).

    Playoffs are different than regular season, of course,...

    Oh - my mistake then. And it's reasonable to criticize Belichick for some of his drafting mistakes - he misses on his WR and CB picks with regularity. I wish he could find WR talent like the...

    Here's an article that provides analysis on how D'onta Hightower has been playing so far this year.

    He's stepped up his game since Jerod Mayo went on IR.

    You're right - it's a common practice. But I don't see why Belichick should be criticized for spending draft choices on QBs - if you have a quality backup for someone like a Tom Brady, you can go...

    There are a couple of QBs missing from your list: Matt Cassel (7th round) and Brian Hoyer (UDFA). Both earned starting jobs in the NFL after they left the Patriots, as did Mallet.

    There was a Super Bowl appearance and a fair amount of success back in the Parcells/Bledsoe era (mid-90s).

    You guys are supposed to be talking about the Pats, and cheatin', and running up the score, and Kraft buying the referees, and that kind of stuff.
