    If their fans were the GM, they'd let NE have him & take the pick.
    that's why I hope they match it

    The Pats are in complete win now mode. They've already traded away multiple picks from this draft trying to squeeze another Super Bowl out of Brady. Brady will be 36 this season. 3rd round picks can take time to develop, if they develop at all. Brady would be 39 in the 3rd season of any rookie drafted this year. I don't think he'll be a top quarterback anymore at 39, so by then the window is closed/closing. The production Sanders can give them now is more valuable.

    OP - now I get it. "You think WE'RE being gutted?"

    NE is certainly bound and determined to add a burner (e.g Mike Jenkins, Donald Jones, maybe Sanders, etc.), perhaps as you say, while Brady can still get the ball downfield. Amendola and Edelman can address the [Caucasian] posession-Smurf WR chair formerly belonging to Welker.

    Now according to LaConfora, Big Ben is demanding the Steelers match the offer, should be interesting to see what happens and the fallout of the decision either way.

Over 40% of 5th rounders start at least 35 games in in their NFL careers. Without looking, I think it's something like 70-75% of 3rd rounders start at least 35 games in their NFL career.

    To say that "most" 3rd rounders don't pan out is just nonsense.
    I'm big on draft picks, but this just isn't true. From 1994 to 2003, only 115 of 338 3rd rounders started 35+ games. Only 59 of 345 5th rounders started 35+ games.

    Probably nothing. It'd be like Joe demanding we don't trade Boldin. We needed to for other reasons, he moves on and keeps playing.

    I'm sure he probably demanded that they keep Arians around too.

    Eventually he is going to get pissed off, if not already. Pissing off your multimillionaire QB is not a good way of doing business and good for the lockerroom. Teams, usually follow thier QB leads.

    Didn't a steeler player mention there was turmoil last year in the locker room and br came out and said it wasn't true? Steeler need to do better then last year or steelers nation will be calling for heads to roll.
    Ravens aren't being gutted, their assemblying a team for the next 6 years that will resemble what has happened the last 5 years. Nfl will not be prepared for the domination of the Baltimore team that goes to post season for 10 or 11 years. Winning at least one or more SBs in the next 6. Steelers will realize by the end of this season that things need to be changed and a franchise QB will be needed.
