    I like the idea of Peppers, but I don't see it happening, and I'd rather have other possibilities anyway... Getting healthy, young, slightly more experienced OLB's back is going to do wonders for the pass rush on its own...

    I really would rather see them just get Wilfork, Mankins, and Seymour extended on top of a couple key, low-cost veteran pick-ups this off-season...

        Same here. I would rather keep our guys around than make a big splash with Peppers.

          I doubt Pep gets here, and agree that Wilfork & Mankins are top priority. But if no big free agent is brought in the Pats' F.O. will look stupid. Why rush the Cassel deal if there was no intention of using some of the newly cleared cap space? There's certainly no need to do that immediately in order to rework current deals.

          OMFG I don't think I could handle the resulting storm of anti-Patriot fanboi-ism!!

              No and NO.


              Harrison is so far over the hill that it wouldn't even be worth it. We can get comparable production from the guys we have.

              I don't think I should even have to talk about why Owens wouldn't work with us.

                No but i'd take Joey Galloway for a year, even for an old man he'd burn most teams for having to play him one on one.

                  I brought it up only 'cause its been brought up recently in the NFL forum

                  With Harrison only playing one spot his whole career- I'd say No.
                  For obvious reasons- I'd say no to TO as well.

                  J. Galloway would be nice for a year. We can draft a WR and see if he develops.

                  I still like the idea of signing Miles Austin of Dallas.

                    Galloway wouldn't be a bad oldguy receiver to bring in if he was dirt cheap. Probably a bit pointless though.

                    Austin would cost a second round pick. A big no to that one as well.

                    • Ideally I would prefer not to take receiver in FA but take a guy in the draft who goes into a perfect situation to develop and will eventually be able to take over from Moss. A veteran receiver would probably stop us taking a receiver high this year and with such good depth until the mid 2nd I say we cash in with someone like Harvin who will fall due to people like Crabtree, Maclin and DHB's 40.
                      I would much rather use the extra cap in picking up a CB or safety or even resigning Mankins and Wilfork.

                      • Maclin is the only receiver besides Crabtree that I would use our first on if they were there and there's no way in hell they would be. DHB scares me after the Chad Jackson experience. Granted, DHB is a much more explosive than Jackson ever was in college, but still. Inconsistent speed receivers are going to scare me for a bit. Wouldn't mind landing Britt with one of our second rounders. I think he could be exactly what we need to make our offense go off again. He probably won't be there though and there's bigger needs we have besides receiver.

                          I think people are missing the boat on what Harvin could bring to this team. You could use him as one of your 3 receivers, the wildcat and returning kicks. It was really hard to get a total read on him at Florida based on having a weak armed QB to throw to him.

                          • I have a gut feeling the WR targeted will be Robiskie. Good size, did better than expected at the combine, football family & the resulting solid "football IQ" . . .

                            This kid screams Patriot material. Honestly, I think I'd be happy with it despite his alma mater. ;)

                              I think people are giving Harvin a bit of a pass on not having a true position. He's a playmaker, there's no doubt about that, but I'm weary of any guy that lacks a true position as he does. He's more of a receiver than a runningback and is improving in that area, but I don't know. Give me a Britt type over Harvin any day. There's injury concern with him as well. As far as the wildcat goes, I don't think we'll be running it anytime soon.

                              Plus he has the added benefit of being able to be had for a third round pick, most likely. I would be all over it if we could get him.

                              • Exactly what I was thinking on Robiskie - 3rd round +/- a few picks. About the only thing that would shock me would be NE picking a player with all their picks.

                                I'm thinking a trade down - something along the lines of 47 & a 4th for a 3rd and 2010 2nd. Use the higher 3rd on Robiskie, add plenty of talent this year and come out with an extra 2nd in 2010.
