Surprised anyone still thinks getting rid of Blount/Talib was a mistake.  I agree with the rest, but those two seem to be absolutely the right decisions.

I was all about getting Talib out of here, but in retrospect it looks pretty stupid.  NE hasn't had a problem with him for a while now.  Blount I never wanted gone and haven't changed my mind.  He isn't particularly special, but he would have been worth keeping around.

Leaving Blount alone then, Talib is still (a) one step away from a year suspension and (b) perpetually injured. He's missed 3 games already, and was unable to finish another two more. He has permanent hip/hamstring issues. In 2012 he only played in 12 games, in 2011 13, in 2010 11 games.
