Trading a forth round pick for Moss and getting Moss to redo his contract for 1 year $5M was incredible. Moss will workout in New England for the length of his contract. Expect Moss to have a good year next season.
In some posts yesterday the word desperate kept coming up. Also a few comparisons to Dallas and Jerry Jones when trying to get the 4th title and especially when he traded to get Galloway. I don't see it. For one, the Pats are in better shape than Dallas was at the time. New England was in a tight AFC championship game. They were close to being champions again.
Dallas, unfortunately was never that close again after they won their 3rd in 4 years. They just had done a poor job of replacing and replinishing the talent on the team. It was a different league and it took a while to get used to the salary cap. New England has done a good job of managing those aspects. The more I think about it, I don't see desperation, but I see good moves. Barring injuries the Pats will be a top team this season.
