“Buying low” blows up again on Patriots

Dennard Getty Images

At some point, the “Patriot Way” gave way to bargain shopping.

With coach Bill Belichick unconcerned about job security, he could instead chase his legacy by taking chances on talented players who are available on the cheap, whether in free agency, via the draft, or by trade.

Most of the players who arrived via that mindset had red flags from their off-field exploits.  Some, like offensive lineman Marcus Cannon (cancer) and tight end Jake Ballard (ACL), came at a low price because of health issues.

Whatever the nature of the risk, at a certain point Belichick has decided the potential reward outweighs the possibility of pissing away a draft pick.

The latest example is cornerback Alfonzo Dennard, whom Belichick gave a lifeline in round seven, roughly a week after the second-round prospect was arrested for assaulting a police officer.  Sure, Dennard was convicted.  But his 30-day sentence would be served after the 2013 season, and more importantly he quickly became a contributor.

But now Dennard is in trouble again, arrested for suspicion of DUI.  His failure to take advantage of the union-provided hotline for a ride home or the NFL money he earns to simply call a cab becomes even more stupid because Dennard has seen the career, and the life, of a teammate implode over the past three weeks.

The most obvious question is whether the Patriots will cut him with the same speed they dumped Hernandez.  Though the Hernandez precedent technically applies only to employees arrested in connection with a murder, any arrest in the fumes of the Hernandez fiasco could be grounds for immediate termination.

It’s further proof that the Patriots need to reconsider whether the cost of a risk gone bad is more than the low-round pick used to acquire the player.  The problem is that, if the Patriots don’t take a chance on a guy with red flags, someone else will.  And that team could end up better for it.

Owner Robert Kraft could be getting to the point where he’d rather have a little less talent if that means having a lot less of a potential headache.  And if Belichick isn’t on board with that, things could get even more interesting in New England.

    The Bengals East…

    Not drafting Clay Matthews cost this team another SB ring. BB has been out-smarting himself for a long time now.

  3. floratiotime says: Jul 11, 2013 9:39 AM

    If you’re out driving in the early morning hours then you run a high risk of being pulled over. Localities need the money, and DUI/DWI convictions bring in a lot of cash. And when you see anything like ‘straddling a lane line’ … you can be sure it’s just a bogus excuse. Sorry … but that’s the reality.

  4. thejohnsmith1122 says: Jul 11, 2013 9:40 AM

    At least they win with these players unlike the players the Bengals take in.

  5. Jon DiPietro says: Jul 11, 2013 9:40 AM

    You have to be a special kind of stupid to put yourself in this position with the Hernandez controversy going on. For that reason alone, he should be cut today.

    Also, if he was driving under the influence that means he was one bad break away from a vehicular homicide arrest.

  6. kabasaman says: Jul 11, 2013 9:40 AM

    But isn’t that the “Patriot Way”.. or was it to cheat when possible.

  7. realguy says: Jul 11, 2013 9:40 AM

    “Buying Low” is a code word used by racists. The Washington Redskins are not amused.

  8. packeranddarien says: Jul 11, 2013 9:42 AM

    Kraft would “rather have a little less talent”?

    Dude, he will sign million dollar talent with ten cent heads if it means he will save a few dollars. Almost any owner would.

  9. azarkhan says: Jul 11, 2013 9:43 AM

    Cut him. Someone that stupid doesn’t belong on the Patriots.

  10. claymath52 says: Jul 11, 2013 9:43 AM

    The whole tone of this article makes me sick. With the police state we live in its a miracle we all aren’t arrested for something we have done. Trying to tie this to Hernandez to make the Pats look bad is why the media sucks. No matter how much you try too push it bozo, there is no way they could have known Hernandez would murder someone.

  11. larceneaux78 says: Jul 11, 2013 9:43 AM

    As long as they have that Brady guy they’re gonna be alright. Why so much hate on the Pats? Championships bring hate from other teams fans. Don’t be mad at the Pats be made at your team .

  16. ajg314 says: Jul 11, 2013 9:45 AM

    Florio, finally an article I can totally get on board with from you. I couldn’t agree more with you regarding these very fair and valid points. I believe Belichick’s ego has gotten the best of him these past several years in that he believes he can take any player and make him into a valuable asset. Hopefully he’s learning that he can’t because his ego is now backfiring on him very badly. It also indicates the level of pressure Belichick feels that he’s under because he has to, as you said, chase his legacy. When Brady packs it in, I suspect he’ll realize that his last chance for another Super Bowl win with probably go with him and he’ll retire himself shortly after that.

    If a team buys low on 4 guys, and one ends up being a star and gets his life together, I bet it is considered a successful draft.

  21. bmoreravens1012013 says: Jul 11, 2013 9:47 AM

    The Patriot Way…..I guess Krafty was duped again….

  22. ottawabrave91 says: Jul 11, 2013 9:47 AM

    I don’t understand how its legal to fire someone from their job, any job athlete factory worker fast food or anything. when they have not been convicted of any crime only accused. any Person can be accused of anything at any time and could be completely innocent and then subsequently proven innocent. but they still lost their job and some of their freedom and possibly paid out bond money. I thought in America we can’t be deprived of life liberty or the pursuit of happiness without due process of law. but apparently being accused of a crime with no proof of guilt yet available to anyone or the justice system yet available is enough to be called “due process of law “

  23. nesuperfan says: Jul 11, 2013 9:49 AM

    While I do not condone DUI at all, they spent a 7th round pick on him…he went 224th in the draft. Even if they lose him, that is not like losing a first-rounder. There is a risk you take with every pick.

  24. harrisonhits2 says: Jul 11, 2013 9:49 AM

    Actually the Pats have always “bought low” under Belichick.

    The difference is the first few years the players they were getting cheap were veteran role players who usually were known for good character.

    The last few years cheap has meant troubled players a lot of times. Dillon had been disgruntled with his team but I don’t think had an arrest record. They did well with him and then got 2.5 or so great years from Randy Moss before he started slacking and opening his mouth. That led BB to think he could reform troubled players.

    With the retirement and departure of players like Bruschi, McGinnest, and others that were the core of stand up vets that controlled the locker room for Bill the Pats no longer can take the problem guys on and get away with it

  25. shackdelrio says: Jul 11, 2013 9:49 AM

    Only a matter of time before Aqib Talib gets arrested again too

  26. southpaw2k says: Jul 11, 2013 9:49 AM

    Can anyone please explain to me why the Patriots lost at least as much as the Ravens this offseason (if not more so, considering the lack of replacement/succession on their roster), and yet commentors on here still consider them as a front-runner for the AFC again? Tom Brady can’t mask all their weaknesses single-handedly.

  27. doctormantistoboggan says: Jul 11, 2013 9:50 AM

    Cheats on wife? check

    Drafts deadbeats? check

    THE PATRIOT WAY

  28. houseofbacon says: Jul 11, 2013 9:52 AM

    At least they kept Aqib Talib to mentor the newcomers…

  29. rmc1995 says: Jul 11, 2013 9:53 AM

    There were opinions written last year that the Lions should have recognized red flags because Fairly’s work ethic was once questioned by a scout. The idea was to continue a season long campaign that made the Lions look as if they were enabling bad behavior at worse, or ignoring bad behavior at best.

    In contrast, the Patriots are basically excused because other teams would have taken the same risk on talentedthe players if the Patriots did not. The difference is that other teams would have been raked over the coals for taking the same risk.

    When will the Patriots be held responsible? The narrative has been to blame a college coach and other teams for the behavior of Patriot players.

  30. rcquinn1972 says: Jul 11, 2013 9:53 AM

    Buy low and sell high, that’s the American way. The Patriots are just better at it than most of the NFL. How come you losers aren’t hating on the Broncos for their recent legal woes? Get a friggin clue, and quit hating on the best organization in the NFL. Every team has a couple of suspect characters, ours are just getting more of the spotlight lately. We cut Hernandez, and Dennard will go shortly. Unlike your Bengals, Ravens, Raiders loving losing arses, we DO THE RIGHT THING!

  31. jersey73 says: Jul 11, 2013 9:53 AM

    When does the jersey buyback for Alfonzo Dennard begin? That line might number is the teens.

    The only reason this article exists is because it’s the Patriots.

    Take the same dude, and put him on another team, and he’s just another knucklehead in the NFL. But because he’s on the Patriots, it suddenly becomes a talk about “team culture”.

    Trying to tie this with Hernandez is retarded. Knock it off, you’re only making yourselves look stupid.

  33. larceneaux78 says: Jul 11, 2013 9:54 AM

    Every year y’all expect the Pats to collapses and every year y’all get disappointed . Just keep on wishing one year it will come true then y’all can say I told you so. It just might be 10 years from now.

    BB is an arrogant pompous ass enabled by his owner, fans and ESPN that really thinks he is a genius who can polish a turd and make it work when his only true claim to fame is that he cheated – CHEATED – to get his “dynasty”. It no longer exists and he is just another coach. So much for his smug non-press conferences and interviews, he is done, has been for a long time, and if he is the one calling the shots Kraft should fire him but he is just a doddering old fool that believes all the hype himself and just doesn’t get the fact that his HC got him all those rings by cheating (just like most of their fans). Watching the demise of this so called “dynasty” great fun by-the-way!

  40. blacknole08 says: Jul 11, 2013 10:01 AM

    I disagree. The Pats didn’t invest that much money into these guys (other than Hernandez) so if they mess up they can just cut them (which they have done in the past).

    It’s not the Pats fault that their players can’t behave. These are grown men — they need to be held accountable for their actions, not the Patriots.

  41. kdsr382013 says: Jul 11, 2013 10:02 AM

    Not a Pats fan at all, but I wouldn’t wish this unfortunate set of circumstances on any team! From letting Welker walk, to Kraft accusing Putin of Stealing his SB Ring, to the Hernandez fiasco, and now this. I don’t know how this team could possibly shake off the effects of such a scandalous and dreadful off season, to make a real run at the post-season. the Hernandez situation will likely follow the team like a dark cloud until he is eventually sent off to do life, which could be anywhere from 1-1/2 to 2-1/2 years from now. What a bummer. Keep ya heads up New England.

    Yeah, cause no other team in the NFL has had two guys get arrested …… right?

    Dennard was a complete idiot for getting behind the wheel while allegedly drunk, while being on probation. Every team has stupid players on their rosters, not just the Patriots.

  47. Patriot42 says: Jul 11, 2013 10:07 AM

    Winning is above everything the most important thing to the Patriots and feel the positives will out way the negatives. They feel they can withstand the out cries by distractors because in the long run the winning will trump the temporary bad seed.

    We will see how that works out. At some point the end doesn’t justify the means.

  49. therealtrenches says: Jul 11, 2013 10:11 AM

    I’ve been saying it since the Patriots taunted the Eagles, rather than being sportsmanlike, after beating them in the 04 Super Bowl:

    This franchise has believed it’s positive press since early in the 00s and in the process has increasingly acted in the exact opposite manner.

    It’s an arrogant, hubristic franchise that is finally getting its comeuppance. Imagine how differently this would all be handled by the league and the media If this WAS the Raiders or Bengals.

  50. hinksonri says: Jul 11, 2013 10:11 AM

    Pathetic….

    We’re getting WAYYYY to ahead of ourselves..

    You’ve forgotten how to perceive correctly..

    Take a breath and use your brains people..

    I get that Dennard was arrested and has a checkered past (which he paid for already, or did we forget that when people get arrested they pay a price, more than one thinks to the glut of media attention the players receive).. Remember, this is still “SUSPICION OF DUI” at this point and the legal system will run it’s course and Dennard will have to pay a price (if guilty) there too.. Does that mean he needs to be cut though? NO WAY!

    Are we becoming that cynical and jaded that everything that anyone does that can be construed as “Wrong” in the public eye will have to pay heavier prices for their actions than the law abides for?

    Look, We’re still talking about a kid out of college.. Are you telling me that any of you (especially people around the same age) would never make a mistake like this? You don’t go out and let loose a little more than expected and make a bad decision? That doesn’t happen? If you say this or believe it to be true YOU ARE A HYPOCRITE!

    I can’t believe the tone and entitlement on these boards anymore.. Since when did suspicion of DUI become equivalent to Murder? Too many of you are on your “High-Horses” and need a little more humility.. It’s easy to point fingers and air out your hypocritical thoughts via the internet but I seriously doubt that would be the case in person or in front of the accused! The way things are going now a Professional Athlete could get picked up because he looks like someone who committed a crime and everyone would want him banished from the league they play for.. It’s dumb, illogical and above all else, hypocritical (because we’ve all made mistakes of varying degrees and should understand that a price will be paid in one way or another)..

    Right now the fashionable thing to do is to pile on the Patriots when, in fact, every other team has had players arrested (some have had their players wrapped up in murder charges/assaults/rapes etc.. and a lot of those players are STILL, or at least PLAYED in the NFL after the fact) and haven’t had the media scrutiny that New England is seeing in the wake of the Hernandez case..

    Let’s not remember that the Pats still have one of the lower Arrest Totals in the NFL since 2000! So buying low hasn’t been that bad, has it? Think about it!

  51. nickster31 says: Jul 11, 2013 10:11 AM

    Can someone PLEASE explain to me why everyone thinks Belichick is so amazing?

    Lets look at what he has done through his career, shall we?

    Failure with the Cleveland Browns.
    Failure with the Pats until Tom Brady.
    Successfully cheated to ein 3 Super Bowls.
    16-0 season, only to lose in the Super Bowl.
    Continuously brings in low character guys.
    Cheats on his wife.
    Cheats on the injury report.
    Wont talk to the media.

    Lets be honest here. Tom Brady is one of the greatest QB’s to ever play the game. If it wasnt for Brady, Belichick would have been out of the NFL YEARS ago.

  56. mike83ri says: Jul 11, 2013 10:15 AM

    To those asking how NFL teams cutting based on an arrest even if not convicted is fair, this isn’t unique to pro sports. I work in the investment banking industry, if I get arrested for anything I need to report it to my employer. I could be punished for the arrest, and I could be punished for failing to report the arrest. An example of something I’m required to report:

    I get pulled over on suspicion of DUI. I agree to take a breathalizer. The cop’s handheld one isn’t working, so they have to take me to the station. I get there, blow into the breathalizer and prove that I haven’t been drinked. I’m released and not charged with anything.

    Because I was arrested, I’m required under SEC regulations to report the arrest.

    This is America.

    For the last few years, the Patriot’s reputation has made up for a lot of the mistakes they’ve made. We can argue over whether or not that’s fair, but the fact does remain that they haven’t been dominating the playoffs over the last 7 years (now, they have consistently been getting there, which is impressive), and part of the reason is poor drafting . Part of that reason is because the team keeps taking players with known issues off the field

    Actually the Pats have always “bought low” under Belichick.

    The difference is the first few years the players they were getting cheap were veteran role players who usually were known for good character.

    The last few years cheap has meant troubled players a lot of times. Dillon had been disgruntled with his team but I don’t think had an arrest record.

    With the retirement and departure of players like Bruschi, McGinnest, and others that were the core of stand up vets that controlled the locker room for Bill the Pats no longer can take the problem guys on and get away with it
    _________________________________
    Exactly right, I’ve said it as well that once the leaders were gone, BB shoul have stopped bringing iffy guys on board for awhile. The disater that was the 09 season (the first year featuring none of their old guard leaders) should have showed him that.

    Dillon DID have bad stuff in his past legally. And his tenure with the team didn’t end really well as he started to act up a bit again (not legal wise, just attitude). I almost drove off the road when I heard the Pats traded for him as he was the first one of those type guys BB has brought in. Turns out he was the only one out of all of them worth taking that risk on also because he was a big reason they won a ring in 04.

    Dennard needs to go. How you can be so stupid or willfully blind not to see what happens to a teammate’s employment when he effs up then you go eff up while ON PROBATION and WHILE THIS WHOLE AH THING IS ONGOING??? Does he have a negative IQ or what?

  65. howdee1934 says: Jul 11, 2013 10:28 AM

    DUI is a long ways from murder and maybe multiple murders. Any punishment should be judged by alcohol tests,, .08? heck lots will test that while mowing their yard, as in mow a while have a beer when you take a break.

Tom Brady can’t mask all their weaknesses single-handedly

    simple the Patriots have TB and a track record of winning with less talent.
    The Ravens have Jump Ball Joe and no Q to bail him out.

    Everyone except Raven fans know they were an average team last season that got hot and lucky (denve game) in the playoffs. If not for a miracle 4th and 29 passto the flat they don’t even make the playoffs.

  68. benjua18 says: Jul 11, 2013 10:38 AM

    “blows up” is certainly an over-exaggeration of a 7th round pick with 7 starts. i’d have wanted my team to take a chance on anyone as good as him in round 7. not the teams fault these guys screw up and they’re often insulated by contract clauses from losing much if they do screw up.

    To take chances like this you need strong leaders in the locker room. They used to have guys like bruschi and Harrison, but that’s all gone now. All that’s left is Brady. And he’s not that great of a leader, IMO. Sure he flips his hair plugs around and screams and puts on a good show on the sideline for the cameras, but that doesn’t make you a great leader. You have a bunch of guys worried about their personal legacy, not tough football players and hardnosed leaders. If I was one of these young guys there wouldn’t be anything about the organization where I would feel a sense of responsibility to be better. You can draft guys like this, but you have to be more proactive and not act like they are going to just snap out of it because they are wearing pats colors.

  75. lalnh says: Jul 11, 2013 10:59 AM

    Didn’t two top level management people in Denver get arrested over the 4th for DUI? Is their organization falling apart? Hmm, didn’t a cowboy player kill another teammate while drunk… then spend time in jail for smoking pot? Didn’t a Chief player murder his girlfriend, then take his own life? The list goes on and on…

    If you think BB is the only coach/nfl player to cheat on his wife – I have some fabulous bridges to sell you.

    The NFL is riddled with stories. Right now, it’s all coming at once for the Pats. No team is exempt. It’s the culture of football. Starts in the colleges, sometimes in the high profile HS, if you win, we’ll cover up your poor choices (from grade maintenance to “good ol’ boy” trouble). Miami is not the only school to cover up for their athletes/coaches. Penn State? Alabama?

    These people are adults and should be held responsible for their actions. They shouldn’t need babysitters.

    Also, if your team is winning, you will look the other way. You can pump your chest now and claim it’s wrong, not worth it to win, but I don’t believe you. If your team is winning, you’ll find a way to justify what they do. Every team has their issues – some, just can hide them a little better.

    Yeah, yeah. When Belichick and the Patriots were winning multiple SBs with a collection of no-name blue collar guys, it was because they were cheating or something, and the absence of SB wins since then is reverse “proof” of that somehow. So when Belichick instead tries to draft more gifted players to win SBs, even if some of them may be head cases, he’s now lost his way or is outsmarting himself or something. Amazing how Pats haters always have some way to dump on them even if it contradicts their earlier complaints.

  85. metitometin says: Jul 11, 2013 11:36 AM

    Look, this is the price you pay for drafting low year after year. The Pats are 13-3 every year, have great years, and then end up picking 28th in the 1st Round. At that point, maybe you are going to take a risk on a player. Not just the Pats would do that. ANY team would try do that to win and maintain their standard of excellence.

    I can’t blame the Pats for trying too hard to win. Sometimes it works out, sometimes it doesn’t. At least they got 3 productive years out of Aaron Hernandez before he imploded.

  86. metitometin says: Jul 11, 2013 11:39 AM

    This type of crap has been going on for years with the Bengals, with the Raiders, with the Dolphins, with the Cowboys, with the Steelers. Why is no attention being paid to the legal woes of players on those teams?

    I guess because it’s the Pats and everyone is trying to take the top dog down.

  87. metitometin says: Jul 11, 2013 11:42 AM

    And again, EVERY team cheated. EVERY team was videotaping. Roger Goodell sent that memo about videotaping to EVERY team in the NFL. If the Pats were the only team videotaping, then why did Roger Goodell send that memo to EVERY team in the NFL? Because EVERY team was videotaping. People need to get a freaking clue. People are just jealous because of the great success of the Pats over the years.

    I’ve never liked Belichick, but this article is a bit of a stretch. A 7th round pick typically doesn’t even make the team–those late rounds are when most teams take chances on guys like Dennard and he would have ended up in camp with somebody even if the Pats had passed on him. Same with Hernandez. Sure, now that he’s been arrested every team is claiming he was totally off their board, but nobody really believes that.

  90. theuglitruth says: Jul 11, 2013 11:50 AM

    Look at all of the Patriots fans…..justifying this kind of behavior. Blaming the cops, blaming the “snitch”, justifying the risk of their own public safety for a few more wins. It’s pathetic.

    You should be asking your team for accountability…not justifying the risk they have brought to your community…not to mention the embarrassment.

  91. sfm073 says: Jul 11, 2013 12:17 PM

    Right, and if the last three Super Bowl Champions (including the Ravens) have taught us anything, it’s not about getting hot late in the season and riding that wave through the playof – oh, wait.

    And you basically ignored my point when I said that Brady can’t mask all the Patriots’ weaknesses by himself. Last year he had Welker, Gronk, and Hernandez to spread the ball around. Now two of those guys are gone, and Gronk may miss a significant portion of the season. I don’t know if you’re a Patriots fan, but if you are, do you honestly have faith in the likes of Jake Ballard, Michael Jenkins, Aaron Dobson, Julian Edelman, and Danny Amendola? Do any of those guys pose enough of a threat to catch 60-80 balls in the season and score double-digit touchdowns?

    And last I checked, Flacco still has Ray Rice, Torrey Smith, Jacoby Jones, and Dennis Pitta to throw to, none of whom I’d call schlubs.

Get a friggin clue, and quit hating on the best organization in the NFL. Every team has a couple of suspect characters, ours are just getting more of the spotlight lately. We cut Hernandez, and Dennard will go shortly. Unlike your Bengals, Ravens, Raiders loving losing arses, we DO THE RIGHT THING!

    No one would report it this way. However, when the Broncos had two executives get arrested for DUI, it all of the sudden became an NFL-culture problem, fostering a setting where binge-drinking was being encouraged.

    It is a double-standard. And – as always – Belichick and Kraft walk away, clean as a whistle, in their shiny, teflon coats…

    I agree with you on the AFC East, which is why I theorize if the Patriots played in any other division (say, the NFC East) they’d be a 9-win team at best.

    And you ignored the fact that while the Ravens lost a number of starters, they replaced almost all of them, with the possible exception of Boldin. Besides, are you trying to say that Ellerbe and Kruger were worth the money that was awarded in their contracts? That’s one of the most absurd things I’ve heard all year, and I’ve called out anyone on here many times for saying that Ellerbe and Kruger would have been better for the Ravens than Dumervil, Huff, Elam, Canty, Spears, and Arthur Brown.

    The Ravens could have tried overpaying to keep their core intact, but then people would have said they were crazy for spending that much on guys who had only one good season under their belts. They made the best choices possible for their franchise long term. I’m amazed that the mass number of commentors on here don’t see that.

  99. wvucolumbus says: Jul 11, 2013 12:56 PM

    This coach is a solid head coach. He has had the good fortune of having the best QB to ever play the game for the past 10-12 years. His “GM” abilities are quite limited and have been since Pioli took the KC job.

    New England is a solid organization that isn’t in the same stratosphere with the likes of the Steelers, Ravens, Packers or Giants. Once Tom Terrific retires, the Pats will slide back into a #7-#10 organizational ranking.

  100. bigwii says: Jul 11, 2013 1:17 PM

    People always say that the Pats have an easy division as if they are the only ones. Look at Manning you all give him a pass but yet when he was in Indy he had a terrible division. The Jags, Titans, and the Texans before they got good, really? They can’t help what division they’re in and they would be just as successful and you all know it.

    Your statement was that “the Patriots the lost at least as much as the Ravens this offseason”. You acknowledge the replacement factor as a parenthetical “if not more so, considering” which implies that the first statement stands on its own.

    My point was that the Patriots did not LOSE nearly as much as the Ravens did. That is all. I did not refer at all to what they gained.

    Reading anything else about what I said into how I feel about the Ravens’ (or Patriots’, for that matter) off season is a mistake.

  103. witchrunner says: Jul 11, 2013 1:30 PM

    Funny thing about being on top, everyone guns for you, including the press. Seriously, are the Pats the only team to have a player in trouble? Sure, Hernandez is obviously the extreme, but the rest are run of the mill stuff that every organization faces.

    Let’s face it, no one thought Rand Moss could be controlled. Yet, BB did it for a couple of years. And they were very productive years. The fact is that BB has done a terrific job with his “risky” signings. At a 7th round pick, there aren’t too many guys left who you know will produce. So, taking a chance on talent with a known troubled past can make sense. And it’s not as if he doesn’t make an educated choice. Hernandez is a case in point. He was rumored to have had a drug problem. Hernandez writes the organization and says he’ll submit to drug tests and agree to forgo pay bonuses, etc. if he tests positive. So, not a bad chance after all. In the end, it didn’t pan out, but he was productive for a while until he blew it. And it’s not as if he took up the slot of someone just about as good that they had to give up because of too much talent.

  104. getyourownname says: Jul 11, 2013 1:34 PM

    I don’t criticize the Pats for taking initial chances on these players. All teams make calculated judgmentsabout how what risks to take (Mike Brown notwithstanding). But just like drafting players with no character risks, you are still judged by your skill at these judgments.

    And the insistence that the Patriots do things differently, when the evidence is clear for all to see, is nonsensical.

    Plus, the strategic choice to extend guaranteed contracts, when you know there are issues (and who thinks Coach Bill had no inkling of some ongoing issues, even if not murder?), leaves you open to more criticism.

    They’ll of course have their annual 6-0 gift from playing in a terrible division, but it will be the other ten games that may do them in this year – they actually have some tough ROAD games, actually two in a row!

  108. bernbeard says: Jul 11, 2013 2:10 PM

    If a team wasn’t able to skip out of having to pay guaranteed money and it counted against cap they would think twice about drafting these players or signing these players. Now they are called steals in draft or FA. Doesn’t mean the players would get the money (to spend on lawyers) but it would go into a fund (to help the homeless or lower the cost of tickets).

    Expecting someone who is intoxicated to exercise reasonable judgment and not drive is silly. Some may have enough wits about them not to do something stupid when banged up, but usually one is prone to do stupid things when intoxicated. It’s not doing stupid things when drunk that’s the root problem, it’s the getting drunk in the first place. Why get so banged up that you no longer know what the hell you are doing? Having been there many times before leaving booze behind, I know first hand that exercising sound judgment when banged up is high risk regardless of what your intent was before getting banged up. Rather than play russian roulette with a gun that has a bullet in it, play tiddly winks instead.

    Everything is a calculated risk. Buying low and selling high is what successful people and businesses do. Dennard was a 7th round pick and Hernandez was a 4th round pick so they got good value (salary/talent). Smarter people/organizations will do better in the long run. There’s a reason for the Pats to have been successful much longer than the rest of the NFL during the salary cap era. I’m a Pats hater but I do respect how well they’ve been able maintain an elite level for over a decade.

    Official Arrests (since 2000 and as of articles posted last week):

    Top 10:
    Bengals = 40
    Vikings = 40
    Broncos = 35
    Titans = 32
    Tampa Bay = 28
    Chiefs = 27
    Jaguars = 27
    Browns = 26
    Dolphins = 26
    Chargers = 25

    Bottom 10:
    Cowboys = 15
    Pats 15
    Bills = 14
    49ers = 13
    Giants = 13
    Eagles = 12
    Cardinals – 11
    Jets = 11
    Rams = 9
    Texans = 9

    So just how are the Pats the bad guys here? The math is pretty simple.. Yeah, if you can count and you can read you will see a difference of roughly 25 arrests between the #1/#2 teams (Vikings & Bengals) and the Patriots.

    I guess the “Hypothesis” about the Pats buying low on only bad eggs is a little off… This Dennard Suspicion of DUI is so overblown because of the Hernandez murder(s) and the collective hatred for the Patriots by fans of other teams.. These same “fans” are just ignorant and conceited because they only recognize the facts that help their side of the argument.. If you look at ALL of the FACTS you’d see that in no way, shape or form is the patriots franchise dysfunctional or the wayward house for distraught players..

    I don’t know if you’ve been paying attention to anything other than the sphere of reality you call being a fan of your own team but I’ll take a minute to clue you in on something:

    The AFC East is STACKED this year.. The Dolphins are better, The Bills should be better and the Jets always play tough against NE (with a few omissions).. And according to athlon sports the Pats have the 9th hardest schedule for 2013.. It’s not the hardest but it’s in the top 30% for hardest schedule.. How does that translate to easy schedule?

    You’re just another hater.. The idea of being a fan of a sport is to not be so biased for any one team.. You’ve fell victim to what owners really want and love – sheep fandom! Buy more jerseys, more tickets, more, more, more and staunchly root for your team because they love your money..

    Yeah, that buying low strategy has not worked for the Pats AT ALL. Bunch of losers like:

    Brady
    Moss
    Welker
    Edelman
    Woodhead
    Branch
    Green-Ellis
    Vinatieri
    Mesko

    Yeah, BB is a moron and the Patriot Way just does not work.

    Karma for spygate and all of the smug arrogance over the years. I hope they fall flat on their faces this year.

    “…the Pats, they have become the Raiders Northeast.”

    You must live under a rock! The Raiders suck big time, while the Patriots are one of the league’s premier team.

    *Watches Superbowl 45 – then wonders when was the last time Brady won a superbowl, was it back when Chappelle’s show was airing new episodes?*
