The Pats haven't exactly used a "no stars" mentality with the franchise, i.e. Tom Brady and Richard Seymour. Seymour was #1 for the year as far as compensation goes, and Brady was #6 I believe. Players like Law are very hard to replace, and it took this long to find one. Do you really want to wait another 3 or 4 years for a new one to develop, while they're stacked now with all this talent? I wouldn't be surprised if Samuel's new contract (should he get one) is worded so that the Pats could dump him while suffering minimally as far as the cap goes, if need be. Do really want Hobbs and Scott/Gay/James covering Harrison and Wayne in the AFC Championship game? That should answer everything.

i don't think we necessarily disagree jameros--i think what i was saying is that the Pats mentality may have changed in this case precisely because of cases like Law's. but you have to admit that putting up with a player like samuel after the way he's acted would be a change of MO for the pats.

Jameros

Very true. Perhaps if Samuel took a different tact he would have his new deal by now.
