    Re: Chad Jackson activated

    How do we field formations with 6 wideouts?

    Well judging by his playing time, Washington isn't seen as a viable 5th receiver. Hopefully Jackson gives us that, so there's no more Heath Evans split out wide.

    Hallelujah! May this be the beginning of long and successful Patriot career. Hopefully the kid is more mature after going through adversity, and ready to show his awesome athletic ability on the field.

    Re: Chad Jackson activated

    I think he was injured most of the season, plus he was still a rookie.

    This year, Moss has taken Jackson under his wing and from what i heard, has learned alot under his tutorship. Jackson will be a huge threat if he stays healthy

    Re: Chad Jackson activated

    You think? My impression from BB's quotes and elsewhere is that he's taking things much more seriously this year as opposed to last year, which was sort of his big problem. With his considerable talent, if he's working at it too I don't think we'd want to relegate that to insurance status.

    Still do not know how he will fit in, seems as though our depth and quality may prohibit meaningful playing time.. otoh good luck, hope he can help..

    So what does this mean for Troy Brown? I guess we have until the week we play the Ravens to make that decision.

    Re: Chad Jackson activated

    ever think that he couldnt crack lineup because he didnt know h is playbook? Ever think that with all the time off..he probably did study the plays like he said he did?

    Re: Chad Jackson activated

    EJ may be ST and insurance in case Mitchell is still injured...plus he plays corner as well.. ChadJ may be used later in the year..speed!!! Washington on ST is solid as well..so?? Troy will be back in a few as well..remember there are always possibilities of injuries...

    Re: Chad Jackson activated

    my take on last season is that he couldn't handle the playbook, he was acting like a kid, and he was injured. I really hope BB finds a way to work him into the offense this year, he did show some flashes last season. he'll probably get some of Gaffs reps

    Re: Chad Jackson activated

    I wonder if Moss has taught him how to catch one-handed?? Actually, it looks to me like that when it gets to "running up the score time" we will see a lot more of Gaffney/Washington/Jackson and a lot less of Moss/Welker/Stallworth. And this is so we have quality depth and can keep fresh bodys on the field the next time we meet the Rolts(Referrees and Colts).

    Re: Chad Jackson activated

    Well the signing of Jackson will determine the future of Stallworth. If Jackson plays well this season, than Stallworth will be traded or cut to make room for cap space. From what i heard, BB is giving Troy a chance to play because of his history with the team and contributions, but his age and lack of playing time this season is seriously negating his chance to make the roster. However, Troy does bring versatility in that he can play WR, CB and Kick Returner. He will be a big asset in case a key player is injured. So we shall see how good he is during the 21 days.

    With the Jackson activation, Gaffney will be playing less. Jackson will make his start in Buffalo as a kick returner and play the majority of the snaps in place of Gaffney.
