But hate Cimini and Mehta all you want, but they were never fired for stealing another article almost word for word like Borges was.
This is from his article which you guys have been quoting for the last two days:
http://bostonherald.com/sports/colum...ig_winner_here“I’ve done many deals with Belichick, and I’ve never seen him do a deal with the intention of taking a $5 million cap hit,” one long-time agent said yesterday. “They may not admit it, but they finally are conceding life without Tom Brady is approaching.
“They’re playing for the moment. The problem is if they don’t win this year, they’re in the same situation next year with an older quarterback who will want to renegotiate his deal and no corner.”

I would like to officially welcome Ron Borges to the ranks of writers in this town concerned about the Patriots spending. Previous population: Me. Welcome to the club, Dr. Ctrl+C. I’ll make us some jackets. But how is it that after 13 years of *****ing that they’re cheap, of talking about their cap management like it’s the Feudal System with Mr. Kraft as the Lord of the castle while Belichick is the evil overseer keeping the peasants living in filth and disease, is he all of a sudden worried about them spending too much? The answer is simple: Belichick pulled off arguably the shrewdest move in a career filled with them. A coup that everyone in the country admits swung the balance of power in the arms race with the Broncos back in their favor. A move that not only landed them the best coverage defender in the game, but also keeps enough cap space free that they guaranteed to keep acquiring talent. And Copy & Paste Borges can’t stand it.
I guarantee you he had his regular “The Patriots are Skinflints” column all ready to go. He took the one he’s written dozen of times over the years and inserted “Talib” in where he’d previously stuck in “Law,” “Milloy,” “Seymour,” “Mankins,” “Wilfork,” Welker” and others, and by the time his deadline came, Belichick pulled off the move of the NFL offseason and he had to find something… anything… to turn the positive into a negative. So he picked the useless, fictitious, 2nd year of the contract that only exists as a bookkeeping placeholder and everyone knows will never kick in. And couches the argument by saying that if they do anything less than win the Super Bowl, then it makes picking up Revis for 12 million bucks (and no draft picks) an abysmal failure. It would be funny if it wasn’t such a transparent, pathetic attempt by him to put a turd in the Patriots punchbowl. And you can’t tell me for one second that if they’d kept Talib and Denver added Revis he wouldn’t be saying Elway out maneuvered Belichick’s balls in on this one. Borges want to measure the success of the Talib/Revis signings by who wins the Super Bowl? Fine. Let’s do it. But if they listened to him over the last 13 years, they’d have zero “leverage over an employee” and zero championships. @JerryThornton1
Haha, bunch of serious losers.
They come here after their little political spin meeting, as usual, like the brigade of drooling fools.
What the hell happened to PatsFnTx? He used to live on these boards
Patriots fan on Jets fan site = basement dwelling troll with no life
Seriously, what in the hell are you doing here? Why would you waste precious minutes and hours of your life trolling these forums? Soon you will be old and near death, looking back at how foolish all the time you spent slouched over at your computer typing to Jets fans. It's really quite sad when you think about it. Wake up man. Your life is ending 1 day at a time. Go outside, get some fresh air, go for a walk, maybe meet a girl.
