Trading Seymour was a mistake that cost the Patriots two Super Bowls, but losing Dumervil was a much bigger mistake? That doesn't make sense to me ... Doom was important, but he's not an every-down impact player like Seymour.
Our regret over losing Doom is based mostly on his high sack totals, those numbers can be spread out over several guys and we're just as good. Richard Seymour never had 10 sacks in a single season.
