    Re: Bam to active roster

    I'm high on Bam - always have been - though apparently my assessment of him is different than the coaches otherwise he'd have been on the active roster far sooner than this.

    Still, let's hope his contribution will help... I do think more spread formations are in order, but all receivers are also going to need to block and hit a defender before going out.

    Good for Bam :rocker:

    Anybody else get the feeling that BB and Mcdaniels have some surprises in store for the Jag D?

    Mike Reiss makes a mistake?

    "A first-year player out of Ohio State, Childress has appeared in two career games with the Patriots. "

    Isn't Bam a second-year player? OK, it's a tiny mistake. Let's see how long it takes him to correct it.

    Re: Bam to active roster

    I don't know if he will even be on the active roster but it doesn't hurt to add a player that has experience as a WR, PR, CB and STs.

    Maybe he can provide a spark, he seems to have a knack for getting open in zone coverage.

    Re: Bam to active roster

    Nice Xmas present to a guy that has worked very hard all year.
    Whether he makes it on the field or not - his payday will get a nice bump.

    Maybe he does make onto the field and actually catches some balls.....he did in pre-season.

    Bam is the kinda guy I love to root for. He's Troy Brown redux. Hope he gets some PT.

    Re: Mike Reiss makes a mistake?

    The Unofficial roster from Patriots.com lists Bam as a 1st year player. I believe he will be again next year since he wasn't vested last year and started from scratch again with the NFLPA this year. I don't know if he could be vested this year were he to remain active through the Superbowl...

    Re: Bam to active roster

    I'm unclear - is he just on the 53 man roster or was it announced that he's on the active roster for tomorrow?

    It's a big difference - though one would think they wouldn't bother putting him on the 53 man roster today if they weren't going to have him on the 45 man active game day roster... unless they just caught wind some other team had their eye on him.

    Re: Childress promoted

    I do not see what the coache's see but from his play last year against Miami and this pre-season, he will be a decent upgrade tommorrow. I strongly believe he could be a solid WR if given more opportunities. Lets hope my assumption is correct. Go Bam!

    Re: Childress promoted

    Sweet, I've been hoping to see him all season. Hopefully they activate him and give him some reps.

    I wouldn't doubt if this means jackson is not active tomorrow.

    Re: Bam to active roster

    I'd agree with that. I wouldn't be surprised to see someone other than Faulk and Brown returning punts .

    Re: Bam to active roster

    Excellents points. I'm assuming they intend on using him tomorrow or next week, most likely tomorrow. I guess the big question is who made the flight down there?

    Re: Childress promoted

    Childress promoted might be the smartest thing the pats have done all season. I liked him all along and was kind of dissapointed when he was released. Dont be suprised if bam starts and get a 100 yrd 1 TD game, he is defenitly someone we need right now.

    Re: Bam to active roster

    They would not promote him unless he were going to play tomorrow. I expect it will be depth in the return game with Maroney and Faulk hurting. I expect Hobbs to return kicks. Brown will take "safe" punts inside our 20, but the other punts are uncertain (CJ?).

    Re: Bam to active roster


    I didn't think so... the 8 guys left off are usually game day decisions... often depends on the health and depth of different areas of the team. I hope he does play, and am glad he's on the 53 man roster (I had a gut feeling the Saban might grab him at some point), but we're a bit premature if we're assuming he's a lock to make the 45 man active roster tomorrow.
