    Based on what I recall seeing from him last year, I like the acquisition on the part of the Patsies.

    Of course, knowing Billicheat, he's just as likely have a come back type of season and give me even more reason to hate the Evil Empire.

    This is the exact problem with the way Miami approaches free agency. Miami has had opportunity after opportunity to at the very least fill some holes with decent free agents and we do nothing. Bilacheat see a need he fills it. What have they signed, 3 wide recievers, a couple of d-backs, d-lineman? What do we do nothing! I'm not saying we need to go nuts or anything but a little aggression would be nice. Why the hell should we loose out on Mark Anderson to Buffalo of all places. Has anyone ever been to Buffalo? It's the boil on the ass of the earth and we can't get one player that represents 10 sack to sign with us. Somethings wrong with this picture!

    In regards to the Pats, they've been the model of not addressing their needs. They need starting CBs, and Will Allen isn't really one. He's depth. They need passrushers, and haven't signed any. In fact they've lost their best passrusher to the Bills.

    In regards to why players go to the Bills, it comes down to money. They're willing to pay more than anyone else for these guys. I certainly wouldn't take Anderson for as much as Buffalo paid. JMO.

    All I'm trying to say is the Pat's are at least somewhat aggesive in filling needs, no they haven't filled every need but signing Will Allen does address depth which they lacked last season with Eddleman playing d-back. They at the least make a move, we do not. Did anyone read Buaniconti's statement as to the state of the Phin's? I really couldn't agree more. Here's the link

    In years past, for the most part, they haven't. Not through free agency.

    In fact they are known for letting their good players go and not replacing them.

    maybe you should take a look at last year's key acquisitions for the patsies that the CL club was complaining about: Haynesworth and Ochostinko. how'd that work out?

    This doesn't make any sense, just seems like another vent from the FIREland brigade. Who says we lost Anderson? he's a bum...

    Anderson fills a need and he had 10 sacks last year. He could have at the very least taken Taylors place and maybe contributed 7 sacks. This isn't a fire Ireland rant, but if we would make just one bold move, say sign Winston. He would have filled a glaring need and even if we had to over pay just a little it would viewed as a positive, appeasing the fan base and calling off the media dogs for awhile.

    Yup maybe we'll just spend to the cap this year and tell the likes of Moore, Bush, Hartline, Long, Starks, Wake, Smith and even Davis that we have no cap room to extend their contracts.

    Man some of you guys think building a team is like playing a video game.

    If the model of not addressing needs means going to the Superbowl every-other-year for a decade I'll take that model.

    Yet for not addressing their needs they have amassed
    a 114 wins and 30 losses over the past 9 years

    I can only pray we don't address our needs like the Patriots

    Oh please. How on earth did Ocho Cinco and Hansworth fill any holes for the Pats last year?
