Has Donte Stallworth been a dissapointment so far in 2 games?

    Its just 2 games passed and I am sure he will have a decent game in the upcoming weeks but has his play dissapointed you as it appears he has not been able to get open in his routes like Randy Moss has and my guess is he has not been able to learn T. Brady and the offense just yet.

    Randy is a much bigger talent but I would think Stallworth would be able to out up some numbers if given a few more games and hope so,but so far its been nothing notable to mention.

    Right now in terms of offseason aquisitions I think Moss,Thomas,Welker,Morris,Stallworth and then K. Brady in this exact order is how the new players have performed in terms of productivity so far.

    If Stallworth does come around I don't know how any secondary in the NFL that we play this year will be able to contain these 2 and with Welker in the flat and Brown probably coming back in the mix by midseason,C. Jackson I think sits all year unless 2 of these receivers get injured.

    If Donte does improve,I think 500 points scored in the regular season is a distinct possibility and our punter may be getting his weekly paycheck for vitually nothing to show to say he earned it while Gostkowski's leg may fall off.

    At this point, i'm wondering why Jabbar Gaffney isn't the #2 receiver... i think he earned it and stallworth needs to prove he can take it away.

    +1 Grizzafted. For a former Baltimore resident, any reference to The Wire is good in my book.

    REMEMBER: THERE'S ONLY ONE BALL.

    Brady is almost perfect, what more do you want? It's only been two weeks.

    Once teams finally start covering Moss more, Stallworth will get the ball.

    Yeah, well put.

    He played a lot on Sunday, so he's obviously doing something right in practice. BB doesn't play guys just for squeaks and gigs. The offense seemed to do just fine with him in there, he only had two catches, but he did draw a PI (admittedly, borderline call) and a few plays later was open for an easy TD had he and Brady connected and had their timing right. If Brady doesn't overthrow the ball, we're probably all talking about how great Stallworth is going to be for us this season.

    The Jets triple covered Moss. Brady still threw him the ball.

    The timing is clearly off between Brady and Stallworth, so there is some mild disappointment. But I still think that Stallworth is the right man across from Moss because teams fear his speed. At the very least, he helps clear the area for Watson and Welker to work and he seems to get open on slant routes pretty easily.

    As long as Watson, Welker and Moss keep it up, the team is good enough to bide their time. Just think how good the passing offense will be once Stallworth is up to speed and Thomas returns.

    Considering how much talent is either waiting to return or fit in and how good this team is already, it is pretty scary just how good that Patriots could be.

    Donte Stallworth is doing fine. He played more in week two than in week one, I'm not worried about it even a little bit. Relax.

    I think just the opposite.

    I commend Donte for understanding, accepting and executing his role on this team.

    He has made a couple of nice catches and, as others have pointed out, teams are now forced to pick their poison with the Pats.

    You concentrate on Moss, you get Stallworth, Welker, Gaffney & Watson.

    And so on...

    Just like Marlo done said.

    The one play that everyone knows that Moss was triple covered, Donte was not on the field.

    Stallworth has a couple of tough catches over the middle.
    Clearly the Brady's focus has been on Moss.

    When the attention of defenses rolls to Moss...you will then see Stallworth sent on a "Fly"

    There is no way to stop the PATS offensive weapons....unless we turn it over or fail to execute.

    One thing I noticed was that he gets off the line real fast and beats jams well. He's got real quick feet. He'll be fine.

    BTW, he went downtown on that one play and drew a PI call. Even though it wasn't technically a catch, you could add an additional catch about 45 yards to his yardage total from last week because of it (and he likely would've caught it if not for the arm bar).

    The only way I think he'd be a dissappointment is when called on he wasn't making plays (dropped balls, wrong spot ,things like that). I ahven't seen any evidence of that yet.
