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.

    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.
