"Sometimes when you win, you really lose, and sometimes when you lose, you really win, and sometimes when you win or lose, you actually tie, and sometimes when you tie, you actually win or lose."

Things I learned from "White Men Can't Jump"

I learned that being a really terrible boyfriend is ok as long as you win a game of pick-up basketball.

Also, AE and Dowling still are tied with 0 career touchdowns

False.

be that as it may, it's admittedly a smaller pill to swallow than if our traded pick turned out to be a perennial pro-bowler

 

I understand what you're saying but if we had kept the pick instead of trading it there's very little chance that we just happen to draft the exact same player the Pats did. Personally I was really high on the TE Kyle Rudolph sitting there in the 2nd, who is now a pro-bowler.

 

Saying we "win" the trade is like giving someone $10,000 cash for a 20 year old rusted out POS car that doesn't even run and then saying later "well I found out they used all the money to buy a pile of manure so actually I won the trade!". Uh, no.

 

We got ass raped in that trade either way. It's completely irrelevant to me if they used the pick wisely or not, actually I remember thinking it was a pretty stupid pick when they made it.

And in Dowlings defense, he has almost as many career interceptions as Armanti has receptions.  Only trails him by 5.

You know the difference between Joe Person and a beat writer? Look at all his tweets that start with "I think" or "Seems like" or "Probably". He has literally no concrete sources. He just goes on hunches, reports after connected sources, and somehow keeps his job. It's actually quite amazing. I really can't fathom it.

AE should have been cut long time ago. Both busts.

the draft pick has it's own value, who they used it on and how that player turns out is irrelevant

 

very true, especially considering how horrific belicheck is at drafting...

no question, having kyle rudolph right now to pair with greg olsen would be outstanding and it's utterly nut-wrankling to be stuck with a perennial training camp pro-bowler every year... that said, it'd be even worse if the patriots had drafted well with it it.

 

all discussions like this do is make me incredibly glad hurney is gone so we don't have to look forward to these sorts of mismanagements anymore

    • This rookie class really seems like a group of hungry football players, not just athletes.  Guys like CMC, Samuel, Moton etc.. all seem like they are gym rats with a passion for the game.  Pair them up with this stellar locker room and film rats like Luke and this could be Gettlemans best draft ever.  Give me guys with football intelligence and passion for the game over egotistical  athletic freaks all day. 
    • So you are saying we should ignore all the wrongs of history and the wrongs of present day?  Our country isn't ignoring race.  What you're saying isn't rooted in what the reality is, because when we do look at race, we see how ugly this country is.  Once things are set right, once injustice has been redressed, then I'll be satisfied.  How many times have black people had to start over in this country?  I'm tired of ignoring race, only to have my stuff burned down again and starting over.
    • So you choose to look at people based on race instead of them as an individual person. When you put it that way, you'll never be satisfied. Grouping people into race categories that have nothing to do with a person's character, personality, or any of the sort will always show a variation in data across all groups under that category. It's virtually impossible to make race groups all the same due to the fact it has nothing to do with any one of those people's characteristics, which are random and probability showing it's impossible for everything to be equal.
