Wow the Chiefs just got better and might even compete for the divisional title this year is Matt plays like he did last season.

 

I was sure the Pats were gonna hang on to him since Brady's recovery was supposedly not going smooth.

We aquired Cassel & Vrabel for a second round pick, which was brilliant imo. Now we need to go after Canty & some roll players along with drafting Curry at #3 in the draft ( the best player in the draft)....we will compete in 2009-2010.

 

That being said I know you are a Donkeys fan & I must say, getting Buckhalter & Dawkins was a great move.

Yes getting Dawkins especially put a smile on my face. :tumbsup:

I may be in the minority, but this time last year I said that the Browns had overrated Derek Anderson and should trade him for a high draft pick. I was right.

 

Well, Matt Cassel is this year's Anderson. Without an offensive line or Randy Moss, the guy is going to scramble around in the stretch offense and get hammered.

 

And Mike Vrabel is a paper tiger. The Patriots are adept at dumping aging veterans at the right time, i.e. Willie McGinest. I think they knew Vrabel was done.

 

Sorry to be a wet blanket. I hope I'm wrong. :(

You are incorrect on all counts...

 

We gave up a second round pick for a potential franchise QB. Pioli is a smart guy & drafted Cassel...he knows what he's getting. I might add that Cassel was sacked twice as much with the Pats O-Line last year & Thigpen was sacked 21 times all year. Our line is not that bad...Cassel will flourish in this Haley offense.

 

As for Vrabel, he was not aquired to be here for 10 years. The defense is very, very young. We need leadership & experience...he will deliver that. Not to mention he will play middle LB...they blitz & stop the run...he will do that in a very productive manner for 3-4 more years. We will draft Curry at three and have one of the best LB core in the NFL.

 

The blogs on ESPN have about 95% of Pats fans pissed off because they feel they got hosed...I think they're right!

you are absolutely right! the pats got totally hosed on this deal....the chiefs are making big strides already, and the draft is yet to come...Denver is also making great strides to be much better this year, (other than considering to trade cutler) they both will compete with the chargers this year....some teams want to win and show it...., others like philly just can't seem to get any help for mcnabb and seemingly won't try......not sure why?.....

The Scott Mitchell talk about Cassel has already begun on ESPN.

 

 

 

Not going to happen...lets not forget too, he is not the starter yet.

Cassell's job got a LOT tougher with the trade of Tony Gonzalez. that alone will prove to be huge this season.

 

They could always trade for Tony Scheffler since the Bronco's have decided to trade everyone that's good. :hammer:

We don't need anything but a blocking tight end. Look at Arizona's offense...it was 3 wide out which is what we will do. We'll be okay. Who had a worse drafter? The Raiders or the Bronco's?

That would be the Raiders but the Broncos did some things that are making their fans scratch their heads.

Their problem for the last few years has been defense and most notably the defensive line that can't put any pressure on the QB but what do they draft, like one D-lineman and a shit load of safeties. Maybe McMoron, I mean McDaniels knows something I don't. And for the record I didn't mind the Knowshon Moreno pick as I think he should be a very good back.

Would have been a great pick up had they not signed 17 running backs in the offseason. I think the AFC West have all lost their minds...
