    What if we don't wear undies and just go commando all the time? just kidding

    Anyway, it's not that big of a deal to me on this one. There really isn't a FA out there like Witherspoon was last year that I can point and say "I want that guy on my team". So why spend the money?

    They didn't let Branch walk. They got a #1 pick for him. 24th overall. With the wr talent this year they could actually upgrade from Branch and save salary. Even taking the hit for the season they made the AFC championship game and may well have been favored over the Bears.

    He was a number one in New England, and is now in Seatle. So how can you say he's not. Seatle's willing to trade Darrell Jackso. Why would they do that unless they thought they didn't have a unmber one guy? He deserves number one receiver money if he's a number one receiver.

    Re: Dont get your undies in a bunch

    The Pats let their number one player go every year. Which ever guy asks for the most money.... BAM traded. Vinniteri, Branch, Dillion, Grahm...thats just the last couple of years. But you can actually keep going with that and see the trend. Banta-cain being let go means only one thing. The Pats didn't want to pay him.
