    LJ’s up early.

    It’s a wonder Ortiz could hold a bat with those damaged fingers on his right hand.

    LJ does refer to him as “Big pappy” so maybe he thinks they’re the same guy?

    Why would Ortiz do radio as opposed to TV or is that just LJ tonguebathing WEEI?

    Reiss references the 2013 offseason with the Welker/Amendola debate as a way to frame the “legal” tampering period. I clicked, thinking he’d bring back all the hysteria over not giving in to Welker’s demands (3-yr, $27m originally), and signing the “injury-prone” Amendola instead.

    Reiss was one of the few then who looked at the transactions rationally. The Pats obviously knew what they were doing, as Welker’s collapse proved, and Reiss would be within his rights to pen an “I told you so” column. Unfortunately, he doesn’t have a vindictive bone in his body.

    Felger was practically pushing Edelman out the door yesterday, which is funny since he wanted to sign Welker for four years at age 31.

    Both things allow him to piss on the fans/team in opposite ways.

    Edelman-out-the-door trolls the fans by wanting a well loved player who buys in to the system to leave. This is similar trolling to the “Brady’s clock is ticking” variety.  He won’t be here forever, folks!

    The Welker thing allows him to blast the team for being cheap when they let him go, and then rip the In-Bill-We-Trust fans for not being as upset as they should be and “drinking the kool-aid.”

    And then when Edelman turned out to be great the Pats just got lucky because Amendola was supposed to be the “real” replacement.  :lol:

    It’s almost like no one knows exactly what is going to happen to any individual player so the team that has the most complete roster-building strategy and doesn’t sign the next shiny object at above market value can consistently compete for a championship.

    WTF does that even mean? What does “right” have to do with it? It’s not like they’re tricking guys or running some sort of salary cap ponzi scheme. There are other ways to build a successful team, but none of them have won as much as the Patriots while avoiding the pitfalls. The Steelers, Ravens, Packers and Broncos have all enjoyed periods of great success, but have also had stretches where they have missed the playoffs or exited quickly. 6 years ago, 49ers looked like they were poised to be a good team for a long time. Now, they’re a joke. Are these teams doing things the right way?

    It’s like the argument that that idiot Lifshatz and others make – “Oh, we’re not allowed to criticize the Patriots.” People can criticize or question the team’s moves, but they never frame it within the accomplishments of the team and how they compare to the rest of the league. Their standard is that the Patriots should have won at least 6 SBs over a 15 year period (something that’s never been done) and deem the fact that they won 5 during that time period (something that’s only been done once*) as a failure. These people create an impossible standard – win the SB every year – complain when it doesn’t happen and then have the nerve to be upset that people are questioning their insane standards.

     

    *From what I could see, the 49ers won 5 SBs between 1981 and 1994

    This doesn’t seem to fit in with Brother John’s proclamation that they will be competing for championships next season.

    Yes, but those 2018 4th, 5th and 6th round comp picks will be key contributors to the 2020 8-8 team.

    What they actually want is to be “allowed” to criticize the Patriots without anyone responding and correctly telling them they’re stupid, spoiled or unethical.

    QUICK ANSWER

    The NFL first instated a salary cap of $34.6 million for each franchise in 1994. Since then, the NFL’s salary cap has increased considerably. The salary cap for the year 2014 was $133 million.

    It’s not like there aren’t actual things to criticize, like feckless sneaker-wearing Big Jonathan.

    Thought I had heard him say that before but this guy’s assholery knows no limits.  Read his comments on Moss for the HOF saying he has less baggage than Owens but his I play when I play comment is not an example of what he wants in a football player.  Of course his last campaign in Indianapolis was about 100% effort, all the time.  No sandbagging it for Luck or anything like that.

    Even the people commenting on Florio’s website know that Polian is full of shit. Everyone at ESPN treats Polian like an all-seeing oracle, so don’t expect any pushback from anyone at the Worldwide Leader.
