    Great post!

    Yup. It's interesting.
    He's done well on defense (makes sense), but quite often misses on offensive playmakers. Not quite as much as Ozzie has, but more than I originally thought.
    NE has been successful with offensive playmakers via FA more than I thought too. Heck, I actually thought that they drafted Troy Brown. Nope.
    Of course, Welker was SDG and MIA's trash before NE picked him up.

    Best drafted offensive playmaker after Brady has been Gronk (2010).
    Otherwise, you might look at Ridley (2011) or Maroney (2006).

    The Vereen/Ridley combo has been good despite the injuries. I would call their types of injuries, the cost of doing business, but you can win with those guys IMO.
    The Gronk/AHern combo was in retrospect uber-risky which is why each fell in the draft; and NE has paid the price in both cases.
    Otherwise, going back to 2000, not much else to praise WRT offensive playmakers.

    Watching New England play the Colts it was obvious the New England was getting all the calls. Jets Giants are terrible this year the NFL needs to prop up the team in the Northeast
