    From Peter King:
    As for Reinfeldt, there were two bad signs -- and two bad signings -- for the Titans on Sunday evening. The Patriots signed the receiver Tennessee really wanted, Donte' Stallworth. The Titans offered him more guaranteed money and more average per year than New England did, but the Patriots got him because they're a better team with a better quarterback right now. And Philadelphia signed the restricted Dallas free-agent linebacker Tennessee wanted, Ryan Fowler.

    It seems other players aren't as enthusiastic about VY as we are. Not only do we lose two of our WR's, but another one passes us up for less money. Can't spend that money if you are in the hospital. I am still amazed that a team spent $30M on Drew, since he drops so many passes. Don't these teams read our message boards?

    shallow market+ cap increase= overspeding. havent you been paying attention the past 2 weeks?

    in all seriousness though, he does drop a lot of passes. 6 drops for 46 catches. not a good ratio.

    See if that number remains the same with Bulger throwing to him.

    why, does Bulger have some special stuff on his hands that acts like a stick 'em for Receivers?

    No, he's a great deal more accurate, and puts the ball where it needs to be for a receiver to make catches. Drew is a very tall receiver, and is better at catching balls up high. It's the little nuances that make a difference. You just really don't get it do you? We lose two receivers, and then Stallworth passes up more money so Brady can throw to him. Maybe the light bulb will go on one day.

    Oh so now the ball wasn't thrown high enough.

    Is it really that painful? You have to get so personal just because I can actually provide hard evidence of Drew's drop it problem?

    Yes we did lose two Receivers, of course if you could actually learn to read you would realise we lowballed Wade and never made an offer for Drew.

    Now if Drew were really as good as you think, a team with first hand knowledge and has been with him for 5 years, they would have resigned him. We have the money, so it certainly isn't about that.

    I'm sure the hamster will start turning that wheel soon.
