Belichick should be ashamed of himself; yet again, Bill’s taking advantage of GM/Coaches who aren’t sure if they have a coaching future. Those poor sods are willing to mortgage their franchise’s future for benefit in the present – trading future picks and the like. They don't have a choice; if those GMs/Coaches don't win in 2010, they're out of a job. In contrast, Hoodie has a job in 2011, so he can rob those desperate FO guys blind because they need wins now.
Consider this: he traded the third 2009 third-round selection (89th overall) to Tennessee for the Tennessee second-round pick in 2010 (47th overall). That’s robbery.
But then he took that 2010 47th overall and traded it to Arizona for the 58th and 89th overall… And then he turned that 58th into Brandon Spikes and a 5th rounder (150th overall)… and he took that 89th overall and traded it to Carolina for the 2011 second-round selection.
Simply put, then – Belichick turned the 2009 third round pick (89th overall) into: Brandon Spikes, a fifth round draft pick (150th overall), AND Carolina’s 2011 second-round selection.
That’s a first-round talent ILB, a second round 2011 draft pick, and a fifth round 2010 draft pick, all coming from one third-round pick (89th overall in 2009). That’s ridiculously awesome.
