Well, the Browns's drafting Brady Quinn (if it happens) will doom the franchise to another four years of sucking.  Is that the type of impact you had in mind?

Already posted this on the Giant forum, but you should be happier than a pig in schite.   Nice value for the next ten years on Thomas... and no... Brady... Quinn!

interesting contrarian moves by Belichick-Pioli dumping 2007 draft choices for FAs and 2008 picks (which some project as a better draft).

Seems like smart moves.

By the way, I hope you noticed Detroit took Manny Ramirez in Round 4.

I can't believe that the Pats traded for Moss.  Doesn't sound like they had to part with much, still I hope Belichick knows what he is getting himself into since Moss can be quite a handful.  The Patriots receiving corps is completely revamped -- could be one of the best in the league.  I don't remember Brady ever having this many weapons before.

Apparently Brady was tired of being the bad-boy on the Pats, either that or the bar's been raised, and he's on the prowl for another actress or model to knock-up.

with the addition of Moss, Stallworth, Welker: Air Belichick

I wonder about the D, always the real strength of the Pats, and whether it will be enough.

Yeah, I really think we could use another veteran corner.

I was also surprised at the Pats' trading for Moss. After having lived through the TO era in Philly, I'm skeptical of these kinds of acquisitions. Plus, the Pats already had Stallworth, who should do a great job.

But I'd rather spend my time whining about the Eagles taking a QB with their first pick. So many damn needs and they go after a QB. Idiots.

My TOP 5 grades in the 07 draft:

Surprise surpise it isn't the Brownies at #1

#1 Atlanta: With what I think are four potential starters this IMO was the best of the draft.

#1A Oakland: Only because they had so many freakin picks some of em have to be keepers.

#2 Arizona: Just eaking out #3, only because #3 SF had to give up "next years" # 1 so...

#3 San Francisco: See above.

#4 Brownies: Again because losing their #1 for next year kinda makes it a gain but a loss too if you see where I'm comin from.

Honorable mention to the Steelers. I can't really put a finger on why other than a hunch.

At least Moss is relatively cheap at $3m and it only cost the a #4, it doesn't seem like it would be a big deal to cut him if his warts come out

the Pats have had sucesses with hi-profle reputed "prima donnas" in the past: Dillon and Harrison. IMO as the cost was a #4 not a big risk. btw, I read this AM that Brady restructured his contract to allow Pats to do the Moss deal.
