That’s exactly how I have interpreted the whole thing.From what I understand,BB felt like JG was the heir apparent to Brady and because of that Brady wanted JG out of NE and went to Mr. Kraft about it. Kraft chose TB over Coach Belichick wanting JG. Belichick was told to move JG by Kraft. And in an instance of petulance, BB picked up the phone and told SF that they'd take a 2nd for JG. It accomplished 3 things, it moved JG like Kraft said, but it also screwed NE because he should have gone for a 1st, and it got JG, the heir apparent, out of the AFC.
The Patriots have been in four out of the five super bowls played up to this point...They wanted to hold onto Brady instead of moving on from him a year or two too soon, and they ended up winning a Super Bowl because of it, so it’s hard to say they made the wrong decision. Plus JG isn’t exactly setting the world on fire anyway.
Oh I won’t be watching. Loathe that team. And if we had only thrown it 8 times against Minny we’d have won. LM was on fire. As he was most of the year. Kudos to the team I hate for knowing the correct gameplan to use.Get ready to hear it a lot these next couple of weeks in response to San Fran only threw it 8 times in the division championship.
