The Pats will never , ever pay Revis' price tag.  It's just not the Patriot Way.

They have got rid of players with plenty of mileage left, but it was a money thing.  It goes to show how great Brady is to deal with a constant turnstile of personnel.  Only problem is....been years since they broke the tape.

This is why crazy religious people should be kept away from important jobs and pointy objects.

Wow.  The guy writing about Tebow sounds batpoop insane.  How did this person have a real job?  Doesn't say much for whoever hired him.

Let the Pats pay 16mil or maybe he will want more now that the cap is going up. Thats less holes they can fill.

While I won't click the link because tebow does not deserve my hit, WTF? Somebody explain lol. Gotta be a joke right?

That Tebow article is just creepy. Basically, Tebow is going to be a Hall of Famer simply because Tebow has such an infectious personality?

No surprise the Pats and Broncos would target Revis. Two clubs with aging HOF QB's trying to grab that brass ring one more time. I just hope the bidding lasts beyond March 13th as the Jets apparently didn't put any language in the trade to protect themselves in this type of circumstance.


Cue Brendan ragging on me for wondering if the Jets had protected themselves the other...3.2.1

@Lloyd Jay Reife agreed. and if they were going to spend big bucks, it wouldn't be on someone who never catches Brady's pass.

@levi  Any money not spent getting Brady receivers (during the final years of his career) is good news for Jets fans.

@a57se Was probably the dude who said trade for Tebow instead of Manning in the first place. Ha.

Why even mention his name? You're just starting stuff.

Anyways, I agree I hope it's after the 13th because then it won't matter at all and we get a 3rd. Tho a 1st and 4th is a steal for a 1 year rental. Consider we got DROY with the 1st.

@williamg1 Exactly. Their offense is nowhere near what its been.

Eh tebow doesn't even deserve the time it takes me to type out his name, let alone read an article that praises him for religious beliefs.

@DrJonathanReefer  I would have been happy with just 1st round compensation. Getting a 3rd or 4th on top of that is just gravy. 


And, you're right, the fact we got BossHogg (at a fraction of Revis' salary) makes it a great trade on our part. And, I think in the future, Dee will make us forget about Revis.

@DrJonathanReefer  

Actually I am attempting to eliminate stuff...when I call him out before he responds it tends to discourage him.

You really don;t need to weigh in on this, it doesn;t help.

@DrJonathanReefer  That's why I keep saying Belicheck is overrated. His gameplan for 10 years is: Here's the ball, Brady. Go win the game.

Well the Pats actually haven't win sqaut since they became and offensive juggernaught. So with the defense on a 10yr downward spiral and the O getting old (Brady) it's about time to strike.

@a57se  Good lord. So why question my opinion on it then?


57- "Just dont comment on my posts then levi and we will get along just fine." (levi makes comment 57 feverishly writes snike reply) 


That lasted a long time.

@a57se I thought you didnt want to converse with me any more? And yeah I did. Nearly the whole article was about religion and faith.

@harold  Actually I would assume he's referencing the $121m, ten year deal which Bob Glauber reported the Jets offered.


Team Revis responded that it was insulting because there was no "fully guaranteed money" (interesting, given the contract he would ultimately sign with Tampa).


Tannenbaum then responded by saying that the Jets were actually flexible on structure, which in retrospect seems to confirm that the AAV being more than Asomugha was all they cared about.

I think he means total.  We probably offered him something like 6 years 72 million with 35 million guaranteed.  He may not get that or he may get a little more.  But look at what he had to do to get it.

Would it have been worth it?

@williamg1 @DrJonathanReefer 

He's making more than we offered him a couple years ago...not sure what you think  we offered but it wasn't $16 million per year.

@DrJonathanReefer  Revis will never see the type of money that the Jets offered him a couple years ago. He gambled, and I think he lost. 

DrJonathanReefer

Getting a stud player for a one year rental makes idzik and the Jets look really smart for trading him.

Revis will pop around from team to team and then disappear out of the NFL without a second thought. All while Boss Hog helps anchor or Dline into one of the best all time.

(Lol anyone like some optimism?)

@a57se @DrJonathanReefer  57, be fair, man. I think we all agree on 95% of the stuff. No need to get upset over the 5% we disagree on.
