    I'm normally with the FO, but I have to say it's quite the head scratcher when you have a handful of guys available at position we need immediate help and no move is made. I can see not going for the big money players but there's some solid WR's out there who probably won't demand much.

    And yeah, hard to see a rookie helping us much this year. That's great for the long term but what's the plan for this year??

    If they go into the season with the current status of the receiving corps and with a rookie WR or 2 from the draft it can come back to bite them in the ass hard.

    Or, the Pats have a lot of confidence in Tate and believe that he'll be fine lining up across from Moss with Edelman in the slot.

    If the Pats don't get the WR they want to fall in the draft, T.O will be an option. I doubt he'll be signed before the draft.

    Ya we saw how they looked at WR3 last year, and that was with a STUD wr2.

    Sorry, I'm not buying that, I know you are though.

    Tate is fine college prospect with no traning camp and one game of experience. It seems very risky to rely on him being a competent starter opposite Moss. And if Moss were injured, I guess we could win by just relying on our running game, even when there is no passing game.

    Unless we have a serious improvement at wide receiver, Moss will be double-teamed on every single play.

    I agree. although we probably draft WR, I don't want to roll the dice without a solid vet.

    Lots of stuff on the blog, but this stood out as comforting.

    Sounds like a plan.

    Even though he's old and I'm not a fan of old players, T.O. keeps himself in great shape unlike Galloway. I hope the Pats sign him and draft a receiver with their early picks. T.O. played on a horrible Bills team and caught for 800+ yards and 5 TD's. I'm pretty sure he's over wanting to be the "go to guy" and think and would keep quiet if he had a chance to play for a team that actually has a QB.

    We need a good #2. Hopefully that is one of the many 2nd round rated WRs.
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    I was thinking about this before, it could happen:

    I think Edelman has the potential to be as good as Welker/have similiar production. His rookie season changing a position, he showed great juke ability and speed. In the games he started, he seemed like he averaged a good amount of catches, not sure.

    Hypothetically, what if Edelman has say 35 catches 400 yards a few TDs by week 5. What would you do? Trade Welker. :eek:

    Hopefully this means a draft day trade for Brandon Marshall. :)

    (A) In terms of value, this is as bad an idea as the whole trade Brady fiasco from last year.
    (B) I can only imagine the outrage from both the players and the fans. :eek:

    a wr takes typically 3 years to GET the nfl....

    immediate answers may come in the draft, they will NOT come at the wr position though

    Perhaps you're right, but why would you expect any of the second rounders to be any better a prospect than Tate? We'd have two rookies and a hope. I guess my perference is for a veteran, which is seeming less likely to happen by the day.

    But I guess the situation really depends on Belihcik's assessment of Tate, and of the wide receivers available between 22 and 53.

    I guess that I would feel better if we drafted Bryant, Thomas or Tate.

    My guess:

    BB drafts Golden Tate and trades for Deion Branch.

    If you believe the rumors, BB really wanted Percy Harvin last year until Minny scooped him up. Golden Tate could therefore be a replacement for Harvin, minus the off-field risk. The team would still have three 2nds to focus on the D and run game.

    I agree with Reiss on Branch. He could easily end up back here on draft day(s).
