I was talking about picking up Hyde in FA in the off-season not trade. If you're going to improve the RB position Guice was a solid move, but we should have brought in Hyde, or hell...in retrospect even Peterson. And I agree with you absolutely about Gordon. The only thing I'll say supports DP in that Bellichek is likely one of very few coaches in the NFL who can tell this kid, no bullshit or you're gone. I am not so sure Gruden could.Elephant - when Hyde was in Cleveland he had a 3.4 yards per carry average.
I don't see how that was worth trading for. Hyde is 28. He is what he is as a runner, there is no upside there from here.
The Patriots were smart. They got a productive WR in Gordon and they got him for nothing to fill one of their definite need areas.
Gordon and a #7 went to Cleveland for a #5 .
So, in essence Belichick traded a #6 pick for a guy who is already making a difference.
Bruce and Co. are so afraid of making a mistake now they don't want to take any real risks.
