    He probably has skid marks in his boxers too.

    So what?

You can't see value in a vacuum when a player does not provide full-time production."

    Butler was pretty shitty last year too. Every game I watched, Butler got torched a few times. He's not a lock down corner. He's decent, but I'm not sure starting him would have won the Super Bowl. Butler even said himself that he kinda just sat back and let the Super Bowl go by him. If he was really invested, he should have spoken up and shown to the coaching staff that he wanted to be there. There's definitely some underlying issue between Butler and the coaching staff, but I'm not sure we'll ever find out what it was. Lack of preparation? Bad behavior? If it was just bad behavior, he would have only been benched for a quarter which is what BB has done in the past. I think it had a lot to do with preparation this season and the coaching staff believing his wasn't mentally prepared.

    Also, Cooks is due about $8.25 mil this year which is kind of rich already for a Pats receiver. He will be a free agent going into 2019. It is said that he will get $15-16 mil which is not going to happen in New England. A while back entering the off-season the Pats remaining cap space was about $4. mil.

    Bellichick is really good at balancing the squad and payroll. Five quality players have been let go one way or another this off-season. BB will find talent at about the same level but most likely on less expensive contract. It's what he does. Fans, media, and NFL people do not fully understand that he does this every year.

    Add all that to the feeling that Cooks was not a good match with his down field speed and his inability to shake many DBs and BB know he must do better. Randy Moss Cooks is not.

    I have no idea what the offense will look like come September. I know the idea of In Bill we trust" may seem lame to many outside New England. People around here scratch their heads a lot but in the end BB tends to enter the season close to or fully loaded for another Superbowl run.

    No amount of second guessing or questioning his moves him can change that.

    Good luck to the other NFL teams. Nothing has changed with all the negative press.

    Here is the Cooks trade explained in detail.

    http://www.espn.com/blog/new-england...ks-to-the-rams

    One thing that has not been mentioned is that Cooks virtue is his speed and being a downfield target.

    The problem is that the Pats offense is set up for a quick release. That is why you see guys like Jules, Dola, and even Hogan and Mitchell on short routes.

    Bellichick had a massive boner for Cooks for over two years. He went out and got him.

    Now he is gone for some good reasons.

    Bellichick is just so much better at this stuff than other coaches or GMs.

    I think it was allocation of resources. He got a year of Cooks and moved up 9 spots in the draft while swapping a 4th for a 6th.
    The rebuild is complete.

    Typical Bellichick.

    Fans outside Boston think things are falling apart for the Bellichick and the Pats. This is fueled by nonsense media commentary.

    The Pats are are reloading on the fly as they always do.
