I think it's good to practice self-restraint in spending (I'm looking at you, Theo), but in the NFL, you have an amount of money to spend and we should be utilizing all of it each year rather than spend $20m less than our opponents.

I am so glad we had Kevin Faulk out there to screw up again.

HAHA too bad none of the loss was Faulk's fault. Our O-line could not stop Jason Taylor, our WR's blow, and our secondary sucks.

I know, but he did have the signature f-up of the game and I felt like bringing it up.

Imagine what we could have done with a decent wideout...

Anthony Spencer. The guy is going to be a beast in a 3-4 defense.

From what I've heard, he was released because he still doesn't know the playbook and he's had a bad attitude...

Spencer will be a 3-4 beast, but so will McDonald as a DE. However, we do not need a day 1 DL. Also, I would rather see us get another 3-4 OLB besides Spencer (preferably LaMarr Woodley)

You mean that the Patriots may be misleading us a bit? Or maybe Belichick got to Maroney and told him to deny it all? Many fantasy owners are hoping that the first-round pick can return for an advantageous match-up with the Texans, but there will be absolutely no telling how healthy he is until Sunday. Play him at your own risk

I took it a completely different way, as in, he's not hurt at all. I thought he was saying it in a condescending kind of way. But I guess that's what I get for putting emotion into written word, you can never tell that part based on how it is written...

The good news is Rodney may be back just in time for me to see him play next week in Jacksonville!! 8)

Time to revisit some previous discussion given the events of this week: WR as a need.

Obviously, a lot of us were counting on Doug Gabriel to be much more than he ended up being... which was a lot of nothing and a waste of a fifth round pick. Chad Jackson, we all believe, will be a very, very good WR with time, at the very least, a dependable #2 guy. I may be willing to admit that I value Reche Caldwell a little less than I should, but I still don't want to see him as much more than a #3. Troy Brown is near the end. Jabar Gaffney is just a guy. WR is officially a very big need now. Maybe not as big as LB or DB, but at the same time, just as possible to be a bigger need (meaning it could go either way). It's safe to say that, while it's not a first round lock (because nothing ever is), it's going to be a toss-up as to what the bigger need is as far as LB/DB/WR.

Who are available in free agency at those positions. I know Lance Briggs, Cato June and Adelius Thomas are at the LB position, but I don't think any of those three are inside guys and that is our biggest need (though Junior Seau may come back). Deon Grant is out there at FS, may be worth a shot. There are some solid corners, but they are likely to get franchised. Shawn Springs may be a cap casualty. I really think what the Pats best move would be, is to find a way to move up and grab a Calvin Johnson or even Dwayne Jarret if they have to and address the defense via free agency. Let's face it, the offense simply isn't cutting it this year.

And I think they need to make a splash this year. They have been far too conservative, and have feasted off of playing extra games and all the extra Super Bowl revenue. They are in the top 3 as far as merchandising goes, it's time to do something. Who is out there for FA WR's? My opinion may be swayed if someone good and signable is out there. Of course, I wouldn't oppose to trading a pick for Randy Moss either. I wouldn't want it to be a first, because he can be a headache, but if it came down to it, then the lower of the firsts could go just to get a guy like that.

But Doug Gabriel not working out changes a lot of things in my opinion...

I like Nate Clements so they can save draft picks for other areas.

And I like Pau Williams.

I would be estatic if we traded up for a Dwayne Jarrett or a Calvin Johnson. Like Jay said we don't have many big needs. LB and S are 2 needs, but they are both depth needs and are two positions we need to get younger at. They certainly aren't positions we need immediately. CB could be an immediate need, but if we resign Asante then I really don't think it is. The only immediate need we have is at WR so if we have a chance with 2 first rounders to move up and get one of the top 2 WR's I say do it. I hate to say it, but IMO the talent has a pretty big drop off after CJ, DJ, and TG. Samardjiza worries me and after him Dwayne Bowe is the only other guy I would consider in round 1. Bothe Jarrett and CJ would instantly make this offense and Tom Brady so much better.
