    A Boston.com Reporter said on air today that the Patriots really got screwed by the Steelers. The Patriots desperately wanted Dri Archer and Martavis Bryant in this draft. As the 3rd round was winding down, they thought that Archer might last til their early 4th rounder. But the Steelers grabed him at 97. Then at pick 105, the Patriots wanted Bryant, but also needed a Center badly, and Stork was high on their list, so they selected Stork cause they had heard that the Bengals liked him alot as well, and they thought there was a better chance for New England to trade back up in round 4, using their 4th at 130, and offering up a 6th in this draft, and a 5th in next years draft to Jacksonville for their pick at 114, cause the word was the Jets at 115 were gonna take a WR...and they did, only it was Shaq Evans. Then he said the Pats tried to offer that same package to the Bears, who picked right before us at 117, but they declined cause they wanted the RB " Ka' Deem Carey badly, and thought he would be gone by the time the 130th pick happened, so no go. And then sure enough...at 118, the Steelers selected Bryant. And this Boston.com reporter said right after they announced the Steelers selection of Bryant, that Bill Belichick walked out of the Pats War room and yelled " S H I T "!!

    I heard him on WEEI early this afternoon. You can try, or I can and see if their Podcast of todays shows are available ???
    But this guy is one of the few who are allowed at the Patriots War room...so I think it is true. And there is no doubt that Bryant visited the Patriots twice...that is documented. So I think it is possible.

    Narcissistic injury is the term used for any threat to a narcissist's outsized ego or self-esteem.

    Yes, but it still doesn't make up for cheating us out of a trip to the SB in '01 & '04.

    "He has a Randy Moss-type build," another scout said. "Doesn't run as fast as Randy but a notch below. There's some immaturity ... He does some idiotic stuff.
    The latter part sounds ominous. And the author knows he's comparing him to other idiotic football players. Anyone know what that's about?

    At the end of the 2012 season, Bryant was suspended from Clemson's bowl game...

    He has also been penalized in the past for the infamous "throat slash" gesture...
