Peter King, in his Monday

Peter King, in his Monday Morning QB column, has a conversation with Matt Millen, who strongly denies the Patriots ever made an offer for the # 2 pick. (He says the rumors are “totally false”…twice) On Sports Xtra last night, Ron Borges was just as adamant in claiming that the Patriots did make the offer and try to get into that spot and were turned down. So who’s right? King has quotes from the guy who would know, on the other side, who is Borges’ source? King later says that it won’t be long before Dan Klecko is as beloved in New England as Tedy Bruschi.

Could that Brady/Patriots window, just like the Celtics, be closed for good?

The colossal second-coming of Joe Montana, once a perfect 10-0 and then 14-2 in the postseason, needed a Tim Tebow tumble to reality and a choke for the ages by Baltimore’s Lee Evans and Billy Cundiff — just to pick up a couple playoff wins.
