    Has anyone worried about Stallworth not getting the ball? Seems to me he's the forgotten guy out there. Brady needs to hit him more often. If Moss gets hurt or dbl and triple covered he has to learn to look elsewhere. I understand if it's there take it but he needs to get Donte' involved.

    What's your take?

    As I said in another thread, I'm a TINY bit worried, 'though my understanding is that Stallworth is a pretty stand-up teammate. I'd like to see him more involved, as well. Hopefully next week.

    I hope Stallworth starts getting involved more also. That 29 yard catch was nice, but the Pats need more than that from him.

    I'm not, the less work he does, the less strain and the healthier he becomes.

    I expect him to get more looks after about week 10 to be honest.

    When the Ds start triple teaming Moss, things will open up more.

    I like this situation. Moss and Brady are going insane, the running game is working, the D is causing turn-overs, and we're scoring tons of points. Its always good to have a lot of depth in WR to keep 'em fresh and healthy. I'd much rather be in this situation than having to rely on stallworth, etc.

    could care less..as long as we win ... BB knows more than i do and brady always finds the open guy.
    Our offense in last 7 yrs has been never to get one particular guy involved just for the sake of it.

    And then, Brady will throw to Stallworth or Gaffney, but not until then. Has any pass to Moss not been caught (yes I know one was thrown to the other team).

    Not worried in the slightest. Moss has been amazing, so that has a lot to do with it. Stallworth is still going to prove invaluable against teams that actually have a defense.

    I'm not worried at all -- this sounds like looking for the cloud.

    I'm hoping we can have Chad Jackson on the same side as Moss to get some better coverages for CJ. ... If and when CJ comes back.

    The idea of Moss, Stallworth and CJ on the same field at once is enticing even if it's only for a couple of plays a game. That's a shytload of speed.

    It really is going to be interesting (WE HOPE), come weeks 6-8 when Troy and CJ have to be activated or IR'd or released. Something tells me CJ might be none too happy about losing the entire season. Thing is, I don't WANT there to be injuries, freeing up the spot. Best-case, I guess, would be a trade of Gaffney or Washington, which would REALLY suck for them, being that this team is in history-making mode.

    Stallworth had a nice catch today, so you know he's awake. It's great that we can afford to use a receiver like Stallworth as a role guy because the rest of our group is so good.

    Once teams learn that they may want to cover Moss at times then Stallworth will get his catches. But for the time being if teams want to continue to be foolish and not cover Moss then let the good times roll.

    I really don't worry about Chad. If there is an injury, I think he'll be activated, if not, he's going to have to sit this year out for the team. It really could be for the best. His skills are pretty much the same as Stallworth. It's my feeling that Stallworth will get busier as the season goes on. He will have a good, not great year, and move on next season where he can be more of a focus to someone's offense. Chad will replace his skills and Randy will reup for about 6MM/yr

    I just think what Moss is doing, is just amazing, and Moss and Brady are just on a different page than the rest of the leauge... Stallworth will still be heard from by the end of the yr..

    Better balance would be nice, and Stallworth is a capable player so it's something to work on. But scraping the bottom of the big empty barrel of things to worry about, the punter is on the top of my list.

    As long as we keep putting up 38 points each game, I don't care if Stallworth catches 1 ball or 10.

    CJ is a story that has been overlooked so far.

    I LOVE the fact that he has this downtime where he can learn greatly from Moss and Stallworth. Also, perhaps Moss can be a nice example to him of what can happen when a great talent plays BS for many years and then wises up. Perhaps, Moss can help CJ leapfrog over 5 or 6 years of wasted talent just by telling him "Don't do what I did" and "Focus here, because you don't want to play for anyone but Brady, baby".

    In Brady I trust. If he is not throwing to Stallworth, then there is a reason for it. They will work it out and I DO think Donte is having a little trouble getting up to speed on this offense.

    By the way, for all those that are under the impression that Moss is not being covered by the opposing D's................. WATCH THE TAPE. He is being doubled (sometimes tripled) on most plays. It just does not seem to make a difference.

    I'll be surprised if the punter makes it to lunchtime today.

    Donte had a nice catch yesterday and frankly, it was good to even see him out there because wasn't there some concern about his knee?

    It's hard to argue with Brady to Moss. If there were a lot of incomplete passes or something, you might wonder. I'm still hopeful Donte will get his moments in the sun.

    He had a knee injury and almost didn't play, so I'm pretty happy with his performance on sunday. Yes, he only had one reception but it was for 29 yards and he was open on some other plays downfield but Randy was even more open. If Brady's looking at Randy first and he's wide open where do you think the balls going? Personally I think some of you guys worry to damn much. Welker and Moss are going off and you're worried because Stallworth's not catching many passes.... It's like going back and reading some of the early pages of the Patriots v Bills discussion thread. A bunch of posters were overracting big time.

    it's a long season. he'll get plenty of touches before December ends. Moss is on fire right now, so it would be dumb not to go his way. sooner or later randy will need a blow or they'll have three guys on him...

    EXACTLY. When the Pats play Baltimore, Philly, Washington and even Indy they will need Donte on the field.

    He also looks happy for his teammates when they score. He doesn't look disgruntled to me. A team player unlike the media perception.

    I agree with you....It's only a matter of time that Donte will start to see more balls going his way...Not worried a bit....
