Default Re: Dre is asking for a #2 WR

So I went back and looked at Belichik's record a little deeper.
You have to go back to 2002 when he drafted a "decent" receiver in Deon Branch.
Branch turns out to be the only receiver that amounts to much under BB.

That's some 19 years in all (with both the Patriots and the Browns).

One of the reason he got fired at Cleveland was a receiver named Derrick Alexander who managed 19 catches in his second season.
DA was a second round draft pick. The same year DA was drafted, BB also selected a back named Tommy Vardell who totaled some 59 or 69 yards in his first two years under BB. That has got to be a bust and another reason for BB's dismissal.

So yeah, that bar was set really low.
