    My brother's wife once ran over the President of his company's dog. Maybe Gabe did the same.

    There was obviously a lot more going on behind the scenes than we know. No way was he benched just for fumbling once. I have a feeling he had an attitude or an effort problem.

    Ok there is a poster on the Planet who knew this was going to happen today and I thought he was just blowing smoke, wow this is stunning. Sorry NEM it HAS to be more than a personal thing with BB, he wants to win more than all of us put together, if this kid could have been any kind of help he would still be on this team.
    Just, wow.

    Dumbass ******* move! Next they should release Maroney and Chad Jackson. There needs to be some explaining because if I can recall the Pats didn't have much depth at WR to begin with. This means one thing, the Pats are probably going to sign a DT. Wilfork may be missing some time. I'm sure Gaberiel was unhappy with his role. Guarentee he goes to a team and contributes. Look for the Colts to sign him. You heard it first. This organization is becoming a joke.

    Wait....I'm sorry, but I forgot about our TE's that were going to create serious match up issues, and revolutionize theway offense is played!!

    We have no idea how he was in practice or in the locker room. My guess is he had an attitude problem whether it was just a bad attitude, lacked toughness, or just didn't put forth any effort. Sometimes when a player plays on a bad, undisciplined team especially when he was younger; he develops bad habits. Looking at the troubles that Porter and Moss have had with attitude this year in Oakland, maybe Gabriel had the same problem.

    I don't think Belichick takes emotions into personnel decisions.

    #15 Jersey

    I think that is probably the most likely scenario, that and height is overrated.

    Hope this is a sign that Chad Jackson is getting healthy. I suspect Jabar Gaffney picked up the offense faster, and has been more dependable, than Gabriel. One thing I really don't understand is why we would release him now - why not wait til the off-season and deal him for...even a 7th. Oh well.

    What do you people think, BB just woke up today and said "we have enough receivers let's cut one"? Obviously we can say it was a mistake to trade for him but none of us has an idea as to why he was released. What's that saying? 'Tis better to be thought a fool, then to open your mouth and remove all doubt. ...'

    I honestly don't understand why this idea that Gabriel was benched just for the fumble vs. the Jets still persists.

    It's just an absurd notion, and is easily recognizable as the utter stupidity it is when subjected to the slightest scrutiny.

    Faulk's had a fumbling problem for years, and never got benched. Dillon's had some really crushing fumbles, and never got benched. Ben Watson's fumbled a bunch of late, and never got benched.

    Sorry, but players don't get benched for one fumble. It doesn't happen.

    There's been something else going on with Gabriel. It probably started well before the Jets game. Heck, it could have started as early as the Broncos game in which he didn't come on until the 4th quarter.

    We don't know. It will be a while before we do. So if we can only speculate, at least let's try to speculate intelligently.

    Speculation:
    I think that Doug did not buy into the work ethic needed to play on the team. Notice how in every WEEI Monday AM interview Tom emphasizes how hard Reche is working and then he'll say how hard the receivers are working. Maybe Doug had a Donald Hayes style comprehension problem and just could not grasp the WR options like blitz adjustments that this offense requires. Maybe Doug was a distraction by sulking or was openly voicing dissention against the coaches or BB's style.

    The true answer is not meant for man to know.

    You stole my thunder. If this was all about a fumble vs. the Jets, I would have thought Faulk would have been long gone with his fumble history. Gabriel was in the doghouse for a lot more than a fumble.

    Exactly. You don't know all of the circumstances. Let's just admit we don't, and won't. If you want to draw the conclusion that he was treated "unfairly" without fully knowing what you're talking about, go ahead.

    BB/Pioli's record as traders has taken another blow. After a

    good trade for Corey Dillon, they traded for Duane Starks, Andre

    Davis, and Doug Gabriel.

    Look at the bright side: If they hit on all of their trades, then nobody will ever trade with them.
