I find it comical that you find that comical. I didn't see anyone say any of what you said in you post. Not even close. And who cares if people don't like him anymore? He acted kind of douchy last year a couple of times and no longer plays for the Saints anyway.

Gronk will, for the 4 games he's "healthy". He and oft injured ex Colt Dwayne Allen can alternate being out of the lineup

I bet he won't. Two reasons: Bill Belicheck & he probably already knows he effed up w/ SP. My .02

Saints have plenty film on him & pretty much know his weaknesses. Doesn't like contact,struggles with press coverage, sucks @ 50/50 ball, sucks at the screen game. 9 route all day from the slot with the out& up. Decoy is my guess vs Saints.

Re: Guess the Cooks trade was the right idea

Depends on Ramis health. Regardless though I think it was a good call. We certainly didn't get shafted and DID get a position of needs. Our running game will give our other receivers get less focus so theoretically we could be more prolific with less talent at receivers. That being said I'm not convinced we have less talent there.

Again though it all hinges on the offensive line. We may even start the season with a backup lineman that's not even on the team.

Re: Guess the Cooks trade was the right idea

We got Ryan Ramczyk and Trey Hendrickson in the deal, so we're looking a whole lot better now...

Still would have preferred to have sent the sixth round pick as the Pats were gonna lose the fourth round pick anyway...

Sometimes wonder if some of this was Payton helping Belichick stick it to Goodell so that the league didn't get the Pats original 4th round for Inflategate...
