    What's with the New England Patriots?

    Signing half the league this offseason. Robert Gallery, Donte Stallworth, Brandon Lloyd, Anthony Gonzalez, Will Allen. I've actually heard of all these players

    Lloyd's a great pickup. Will be there number 1 receiver straight off and adds more to the offense. The rest are more roster pickups and I'd would say either Stallworth or Gonzalez will be cut during camp.

    Considering the problems they had in the secondary, I'm surprised they only picked up Allen,who is not a starter at this stage of his career.

    Plus they have like 54 draft picks. I wonder how they're able to stay under the cap every year while changing the roster so much.

    Most of the guys are on 1 year contracts and with the exception of Lloyd and possibly Gallery, are mostly depth/rotational players.

    Fanene will replace Mike Wright's role on the defense and Gallery will fill in at left guard if Mankins isn't ready when the season starts.

    The Patriots have a QB who makes enough money that he can restructure his contract, make less the $1Million, and free up $7+million in cap space.

    Brady is coming to the end of his career and the Pats* are trying to load up for a last hurrah for him.I don't blame them because I would do the same.When Brady retires he takes their relevence with him and they know it.Belicheat is no genius....contrary to what the media might be promoting.

    This coming from a Jet fan who's team hasn't had any relevence in 42 years is comical. Brady is a once in a life time QB, no doubt, but something tells me B.B. will still be far and away a better coach than the fat loud mouth the Jets have. Then again after the Jets go 6-10 this year he may be gone.

    Both of you are right.
    The Jets were relevant only once in their history. BB can whip Rex while taking a cat nap. The hiring of Sparano, and the impending mediocrity will signal another regime change.
    The Patriots will soon find out about life after Tommy. They will still be good, but not dominant with another QB. Mallet? The Pats have not won anything since 2007. I think the bloom is already off the rose.

    Of course you do, and I'm sure you think the Phins are just about to turn the corner.
