Welcome to PatsFans.com

Do we need to do something about the #3 wideout?

What to do about WR #3

  1. Give Galloway more time

    35.7%
  2. Brandon Tate comes off PUP in week 7

    16.7%
  3. Use Edelman & Welker at the same time

    17.9%
  4. Continue to implement the 2 WR-2TE or 2WR-2RB sets more

    20.2%
  5. Somehow obtain a wideout who is not currently on the NE Patriots roster

    9.5%

    I know some were excited to see it, but Galloway being inactive isn't exactly ideal. Aiken dropped two passes, one of which stalled the opening drive after the fumble recovery. His blunder in the end zone against ATL was as bad as Galloway's, and if it weren't for his special teams play, he wouldn't be bumping Galloway off the field.

    Edelman, at this point, doesn't seem to have a lot of value outside of a Welker backup. That could change in time. Don't get me wrong, he's a great Welker 2.0, but when Welker 1.0 is healthy, his value is diminished.

    I'm still hoping Galloway figures it out and contributes. Re-watching that Ravens 2007, even though I wasn't the biggest Stallworth fan, it was clear that he was a bigger threat and that helped out the offense.

    So, what's the solution to the #3 WR spot?

    Stallworth was a major talent but couldnt take his understanding of the offense to the next level. Thats what did him in here. He stretched the field and did a nice job running after the catch.

    Its still early and I hope Galloway turns it around, but I am growing more skeptical by the week. To be deactivated is a clear message that BB does not have confidence that he can contribute to the offense at this point.

    It'll be interesting to see who the bring to Denver. Denver has a pretty decent secondary and a ok run defense. Do they go the same route as they did for BAL (4 WRs and 3 TEs) or go with 5 WR? Not sure.

    2 words...

    Terrence Nunn



    From what I have seen from him in the offseason,This kid looks like a star receiver who just needs a little time and experience to show his stuff....its time to move him up from PS and possibly Edelman moving up as well,Time for Galloway to have a good game or good riddance.

    Galloway was too good for too long just to discard after 3 games. I say give him one more game and see how that works out.

    Deactivations are sometimes magical in effect though. Anyone who watched the Steelers running game knows this...

    Just a thought.. I would think Galloway has until week 7 to show something.. If he continues to play like he has and Tate is healthy, he should come off PUP and be active.. Plus this gives a few more weeks for E to grasp the offense..

    Not sure what we can expect from Tate this year, think you have to give Galloway a little more time.. he has been too good, for too long to just give up on.

    Agreed. I think he'll be active, in both senses of the word, this Sunday.

    If he continues to play like he has, I say his name should be 'Goneaway'! Then bring in Tate, Nunn or whoever that wants to play and can catch the ball.

    I voted for the 2WR-2TE system. It seems to be working better. We're 2-0 with that system and 1-1 with the other. But the win against the Falcons was nearly a blowout if another TD was scored and we put 27 up on the Ravens. Compared to barely beating the Bills and scoring 9 on the Jets (No TD's in that game, remember?) So keep with this system and we could be celebrating in Miami in February.

    Also, yes, Tate s/b activated.

    You shouldn't waste a 3rd on a guy who doesn't even get on the field when he's healthy enough to. By then we'll probably have someone on IR, or maybe Galloway (who has lost his way) will be cut.

    How about one or two of our 2nd round picks next year? Imagine a Moss, Chad, and Welker combo? :D

    when is Chad's contract up? I mean he is in love with BB so I think he could have an attitude change like Moss.

    he'll be 32 at the start of the season....Not sure dishing a 2nd is a wise move. Plus his contract goes to 2011 would need to renego.

    He's a legit #1 WR and drafting is not an exact science. I'd rather take someone like him that you know can play and have him for a good 3-4 years with Brady than taking a chance on a second round pick who might not even pan out, especially since we already have 3 second round picks next year.

    I agree. Just saying a 2nd rounder is a pretty big chip for a 32 year old w/ a big contract.

    Would love to see Ocho on the Pats. I think he'd be ok here actually.

    I actually really liked Stallworth opposite Moss, I thought he was dangerous, but you have to give Galloway more time, cant just get rid after 4 games, obviously, if he continues to drop passes etc, then there is no choice, but I give him untill weeks 8-10

    Do you really think Tate, after 6 weeks on the PUP, and being a rookie receiver, is going to be better than anyone?

    Tate is WR #3 in 2010. Week 7 in 2009, Nunn, Edelman, Aiken, and Galloway will all be better players and know the offense than him.

    I hope you're right - and it could be the case. I thought Galloway has done a couple good things this season that were overlooked (he got open against ATL and Brady misfired). My only concern is - it's not like he [Galloway] hasn't been putting in the work. He's working hard, he's got a good attitude. I keep saying it'll click at some point...let's just hope its soon.

    Yeah, it will be interesting - I would lean towards a more varied approach like we've seen the last 2 weeks, which would lend itself to 4 WRs. We ran right over Denver last year, and maybe can do likewise this season.

    Still, I really want to see Galloway active (and as JsN said, in both senses of the word).

    Galloway won't be traded,He probably does not even have enough in the tank to get a 7th rounder at this point with nothing showing on the field and being well up in age - If anything,he is cut and Nunn is called up to take place on the roster.
