Well, the actual facts suggest he WOULD be a Patriot regardless of the trade. Unless you were in Belichick's office when all this went down, you can't definitely say I'm wrong, no matter how hard you try. (Really irks you, doesn't it..... You're need to prove me and others wrong, and yourself right is getting unhealthy. Might want to get that checked out).
Anyway, back to the REAL topic: What does anyone else think about the odds of Revis successfully returning from ACL injury? History for CB's is against him, but the medicine of today has advanved further than in the past (even 10 years ago). If he's not traded, what does everyone else think the odds are of him hitting the FA market? What kind of interest would he garner if he does?
So, you HAVE no evidence to dispute the claim that Welker was essentially going to be a Patriot. (again, your own opinion, doesn't count). That's why you're arguing, ain't it? You're just pounding a bunch a sand to make it SEEM like you know what you're talking about, when you don't. You suggest he could have gone somewhere else, but again, not seeing you state any facts that support it. Just your opinion (again). Yes, I DID my research. I presented the facts that research uncovered. The sources I found included information from Welker's agent. I wasn't trying to pass anything off. Unless you think that it was only his agent's opinion, and not fact that I was using. Oh, for shame!
Also, a poison pill would NOT have made it difficult for Miami to match, it would have made it impossible or simply not worth the money involved. A "poison pill" is designed for just that reason. Something like, "if Welker plays 4 or more games in Miami he's due a (insert absurd amount) bonus".
So which is it? Is it supposed to be impossible, like you start out saying, or is it possible but simply "not worth the money involved"? You can't have it both ways. It's gotta be one or the other. Oh, that's right. You don't really know what exactly was in the deal NE was planning to make. You don't really know whether it would have been impossible or not for Miami to match. You're just assuming, and then counting your assumption as fact. Where's the evidence that shows it would be impossible for Miami to match?
But, what amazes me most is with all this alleged NFL knowledge you act like you have, that not one single team has scooped you up to be their next GM. Boggles the mind.
And you're arguing that I'm incorrect in my opinion. Yet, while my evidence supports my statement, you've come up with precisely squat at to why I'm definitely wrong. Here's another three posts from you, and still nothing cited as evidence that I'm wrong. Just your opinion, and you're hilarious attempts at trolling.
Not to worry though. You've provided enough entertainment for one day.
No worries..... I'm $20 richer thanks to e-love
