Wow. I wonder if Bill can keep Brown focused.

Is Antonio Brown good?

I doubt it.  The guy is unstable.  He needs help.  Unless it was all a conspiracy and he was trying to get out of his contract.  

My hope is that he brings the patriots down with his madness.  Maybe AB will end the dynasty...



Not surprised that the Patriots signed Brown. They are already a team filled with players that nobody likes, so what's one more guy on the roster?



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

He is good, but he is a punk. Patriots are repeating the Josh Gordon mistake.

This one likes to record private conversations within his organization lol. The thought of AB recording/filming Belichick behind closed doors is actually quite an amusing one. Hope it happens

Mistake? I mean, what exactly did it cost them? Gordon played pretty decent football for a while and then the Patriots won the Super Bowl. Same deal here. If AB can play, we just scored one of the best receivers in the league. If AB can't play, we gave up nothing for him so, oh well.

Both are low risk, high reward players. Not really sure how you color Gordon to be a "mistake" especially when he is still with the team despite what happened.

Hm... some insight on how and how often the Patriots cheat would actually be pretty cool.

He isn't reliable, the Patriots won without him. NFL is all about who is reliable both physically and mentally.

But how can you call something a mistake when it clearly didn't harm the team? Yes, Gordon isn't a perfect player. I am aware. However, to assert that it was a mistake to sign him is to say that the team was appreciably worse off with him than without him and I feel there is no evidence to make that case.

Same with this AB deal. If it doesn't work out, it will likely not have any real appreciable negative impact on the team. If it does work out, it will likely have a hugely positive impact on the team. That is generally what you would call a good gamble.
