So before we get into the Week 5 picks, I have to apologize for not posting as much as I should. Thing are always busy for your boy with work and other things, so I hope I can get back to posting on the blog a little more often. Even if it’s lil things. But…if you’ve been following me on Twitter, then you already know that I haven’t missed a beat.
On that note, what’s good with New England Patriots trading to the Minnesota ?
Truthfully, I think that’s a good thing. He wants a newand the New England Patriots weren’t looking to give him a new one right away. And with the trade, there’s a possibility they weren’t going to give him a new contract at the end of the season.
