Patriots Defeat Panthers,Make Worthless Trade

The Patriots beat the Carolina Panthers 30-7. Tom Brady started most of the game but late in, Garroppolo got a chance to play. They also traded Logan Mankins today. When I heard it, I was in shock and I still am. Logan Mankins? Just about the best lineman in Patriots history. He played for 10 years and his salary cap got too high to manage, so they traded him but got nothing back! Tight end Tim Wright and only a 4th round draft pick. Not 1st, not 2nd, not 3rd, but 4th round! When you go over the good Pats players before the trade, you think Brady,Revis,Gronkowski,Wilfork,Mayo and Mankins! He was getting old and we did have a tight end weakness though, due to Gronk returning from surgery and Hooman possibly going on the injured reserve. Tim Wright was a draft pick who’s a 6′ 4″ tight end. I’ve heard he’s an OK player but cannot compare to Mankins, even when you include the draft pick.They did not have to give up somebody as good as Mankins just to get Tim Wright!
Back to the game,Brady got a touchdown,field goal pattern three times then it was 30-0 and Carolina finally scored a touchdown in the 4th quarter and it was 30-7 for the final score.I think Carolina will be 8-8,in 2nd place in the NFC South and missing the playoffs while the Pats dominate to win the super bowl.I have a good feeling about the Pats in 2014 more then any other New England team.
