    Mayve after seeing how the team played this week the FO realized that they had to deal with the Branch situation NOW.

    Would love to hear what he's saying behind closed doors. My guess is he's pissed at Deion but even more pissed at the organization for giving him what's supposed to pass for a WR corps.

    These topics are being discussed in the "Brady's take" thread. (I believe that's the one)

    EDIT= fixed thread title.

    Not the Patriots' fault that Jackson got hurt. They just need to work hard and get in synch. This year's WR are a more talented group than last year's. It may be later this year, next year or never when they get in synch with Brady but, make no mistake, the talent is there.

    Have you seen Jackson or Gabriel play yet? Gabriel was the #2 receiver (behind Moss) so that tells me he is pretty good and Jackson looked good in camp, Caldwell caught what was thrown to him and of course Brown is still there so I am not quite sure why you are making assumptions?

    How about we reserve our judgments on the WR situation until they actually get healthy and play.

    I think he did learn a lesson like he said, "It's tough because you develop relationships with players. Coaches don't have relationships with players and management doesn’t know what guys are like. In that sense, it’s probably tougher for players to see other players go, because we hang out. We’re buddies. It goes far beyond the football field. Like I said, I think part of this process that I learned is to kind of expect the unexpected."

    Once again I think Brady gets it. Instead of pulling a Moss and ripping everyone he actually sees all sides of it. Is he upset, sure but as long as he pulls it together next week I think it'll be fine. How many times have we heard "winning cures alot of ills".

    I'm a little disappointed that Box didn't call for a thread merge on his own.....;)

    I've seen Gabriel play before, yes. He will clearly be our No. 1 (not sayin much). Jackson haven't seen play. Rookie WR track records, not so good in the NFL. Caldwell is a No. 4 NFL WR. Maybe a No. 5. HIs career numbers back that up. Troy is 35 years old and still moderately effective.

    But yeah, this is Brady's "dream" WR corps. Sure thing. He's probably not dissapointed at all.

    I considered it when I first read BF80's note, but after checking your thread, decided it hadn't been meant to highlight Deion's affect in the team - even if it had been hijacked by you and others. :D

    I've discovered that if ANY thread stays around for longer than five posts it ends up switching topics at least twice. :D

    I think it's very appropriate to have a couple of threads on this subject.

    It sure as hell beats having multiple threads going on Jerry Porter and ***** ****.

    I doubt it. I saw WRs open last week (watch the game again on NFL Network). He just couldn't find the open man, and when he did, his passes were off target. Brady to too good to point the finger. He knows where the blame lies for last week (for those of you that need blame for winning a game, and somebody to be pissed at because we didn't win "pretty"), and it is with No. 12.

    You are too harsh.

    Caldwell is a legit #3 at least... I would put him on par with David Patten.

    Gabriel is a #2 caliber

    At this point in his career, Troy Brown is a #3 or #4 caliber.

    .... who knows about Jackson yet.

    We are a team with no #1 caliber WR unless Jackson has a monster rookie season or one of these other guys plays way above their perceived talent level.

    Our team was distracted and won. Yours was focused and lost.

    Now our team gets to focus. And you're... happy?


    You, sir, are the epitome of a moronic troll.

    My website has cool people. Your's has crybabies. "Boo hoo, Branch is gone" "Boo hoo, Seymour likes men" Boo hoo. I get a kick out of it. True enjoyment.

    I'm sure he's crushed. He'd likely be much happier if we traded Seymour for Randy Moss, Maroney for Santana Moss, Bruschi for Torry Holt, Harrison for Larry Fitzgerald and Light for Chad Jackson.

    That would be a kick ass group that we could win Super Bowls with.
