    That's Taylor Price, by the way. :)

    Wait! Wasn't it a week or two ago we read the same "pump the playah up" press release about Ocho?

    Use him middle-deep and with quick slants.

    He's impressed in just about every opportunity he's gotten. Could be a solid deep threat for us IMO, it's time to unleash him. Games like yesterday and the playoff game last year where we were essentially dared to go deep, he could've been a huge asset.

    If Price proves he can play that alone will functionally fix the offense.

    Even assuming he has a limited number of plays down, BOB could use him in this limited fashion for a game or two until opposing DCs looked at the film and figured out the limitations. Go for it. Price is speedy It's not like we have any other viable means to exploit those routes other than Slater who has hands like mine..

    There's a ringing endorsement for Ocho, if I ever heard one. We know Belichick would cut his grandmother despite guaranteed money, so is this an attempt to light a fire? Seriously, it's not like we couldn't use a roster spot for the defense. Of course Edelmans spot is questionable too now, I guess.

    Both Edelman and Ocho would be affected by Price being a greater part of the game plan.
    With Woodhead as our punt returner, I'm not sure that Edelman serves much purpose.

    If true, it's about time BOB saw the light...

    Let him practice with the first stringers to get some timing down with TB.....


    The Price is Right ! ;)

    I've never seen Woodhead return punts. I have seen him return kickoffs, however, and the words "concrete shoes" come to mind. Edelman definitely serves a purpose.

    Please be true. If given the chance, Price could be the pats 2nd best WR.

    I wonder if they would consider letting Vereen and/or Riddley, have a chance at kick returns. Both of our Running Backs are banged up. Let the younglings get a chance to show what they can do. We need Law Firm and Woodhead healthy for the run to the playoffs.

    Price should have been given every opportunity to earn a role with the first string offense instead of bringing in Ocho. That trade never should have been made. They should have used the draft picks on a legit pass rusher.

    I wont believe it till i actually see it.Bob needs to learn how to adjust his offense to wat the other team is doing.This guy still worries me in a big spot.This offense has to be clicking in order to take away pressure from the terrible defense!

    Its amazing that Ochostinko has been a bust.Its not like the guy was coming off a terrible season.I was hoping to get 700 plus yards from the guy but has he even broken 100 yards yet?:rolleyes::mad:

    I have to wonder if that trade would have been made without the lockout. With no mini-camps, etc., there was almost no chance for Price to work with or show anything to coaches.

    I knew it would happen eventually, wouldve happened sooner if Ochocinco wasnt signed.

    Bill parcells said before the season started that he saw Taylor Price as the pats breakout player this year...the signing of ocho/injuries kind of hampered that after a good pre-season...but im looking forward to seeing more of him.

    IMO theres more promise/upside for this offense if Price can get going than ocho...price is a young speedy receiver...something we need. Ocho's skillset is too similar to branch and somewhat redundant

    So it seems BOB agrees that we need a middle deep threat. I'm now less sure of my analysis. :eek:

    you look at alot of our competition out there, and they have speedy young receivers....its about time we start getting more snaps for Price out there...and take into account he'll be going against inferior corners to get open against. I like branch, but hes no burner...we need someone who can beat their man

    he may be inexperienced...but if he has the talent, with enough opportunities he can be productive for us and add another threat to the offense..look how hernandez, gronk, woodhead produced last year with little experience

    I think if Taylor Price can be productive it will open up the middle alot more for welker/hernandez/gronk and even the run....I just hope that the promise he showed in pre-season/praise from bill parcells can translate into on the field production

    unless brady starts to trust him ..price cant do much. Right now brady will throw to double or triple covered welker and branch. Kinda had the same thing when moss was here...

    The Brown's just cut Brian Robiskie. How I thought they had a steal in the 2nd round. Oh well.
    We need speed. He is a burner as well.
