Both Tony Kornheiser and Michael Wilbon acknowledge that the strong relationship between “security blanket” Deion Branch and Tom Brady is important, but agreed that there’s no way the Patriots are a better team with Branch over Randy Moss.
Kornheiser: “Can I ask you a question? When was the last time you put Deion Branch and Randy Moss in the same sentence?”
Kornheiser: “[Branch] went away after the 2005 season. He’s 5 years older. Are you sure he’s just as fast? Are you sure he’s just as good a receiver? … Tom Brady’s emotional health is one thing, but [Branch] is no Randy Moss.”
What do you think? Does replacing Moss with Branch make the Patriots a better team? Or are they worse? Share your thoughts in the comments section.
