Some Patriots fans said some mean and hurtful things about Bill Belichick yesterday, after Aqib Talib signed with the Broncos and the Patriots sat there with nobody.
Hey, it was probably all warranted at the time.
Then the 8 o'clock hour came around . . . and it was reported that they had come to terms on a deal with some guy named DARRELLE REVIS.
So, uh, hey Bill, about what we said about you . . .
Do Patriots fans, and our Arbella Early Edition crew of Gary Tanguay, Trenni Kusnierek and Dan Shaughnessy, owe Bill Belichick an apology for not thinking he'd make a bold free-agent move this offseason?
After the Patriots lost cornerback Aqib Talib to Denver, there was a lot of hand-wringing. About 24 hours later, there were hosanas for landing an even better cornerback Darrelle Revis.
"The column I had written was not published," said Shaughnessy, the Globe columnist. "The feeling was they weren't going to do it."
Kusnierek points out that Revis doesn't address the issue of getting a top target for Tom Brady.
"I has to be the negative Nancy in the room, but what about the offense?" she asked.
