    I sure hope so. We need him, but if he isn't signed his price has gone up.

    The way Gaffney has performed during the playoffs kind of reminds me how Givens started to come on late in the 2003 season. We saw then, and are seeing now, flashes of a potential 60-70+ receptions and 800-900 yard receiver.

    It's nice to know he is signed for another season. I think he has quickly become Brady's go-to-receiver. He runs great routes and has sure hands.

    Think he gets an extension this off season? Should get him while he's cheap...1 mil a year for 4 years...I could go for that.

    I'd like to see the Pats extend Gaffney and Caldwell - keep each here for the next 3 years. Seems do-able.

    their receiving core is only going to get stronger also. like the rest of the team they've been able to transition that position much like d-line was from the first superbowl, and even the secondary.

    I think the original report in October was that he was signed to a 2 year deal (maybe 1 year with an option?).

    Either way, in the wake of the Branch/Givens departures, I'd like to see them both extended now on the cheap.

    JG is only RETURNING to what he previously was able to do. Expanded somewhat by playing for a winning rather than expansion club. It doesn't take rocket science to think a young, uninjured, high pick, (proving he has the triangle), who has proved he can transition to NFL speed, would prove to be a good addition.

    The puzzle is with the other 31 GMs...:eek: :eek:

    Smart coaches and GM's will start to learn that 4.4 and sub 4.4 speed is but perhaps 25% of the puzzle. These kids need time more often then not ... which drives me crazy hearing people complaining about Chad Jackson so much. Most of all they need good coaching ... talent does not = production many times at young ages.

    Here's a look back at the 2002 draft and what they said. Crazy why Gaffney was let go.
    Their profiles were pretty much on ... good analysis by whomever here.

    Amazing numbers from Peter King in his article today.

    "1. Gaffney/Caldwell find a way. In the last two weeks of playoff football, Gaffney and Caldwell have 30 catches for 337 yards and two touchdowns. Indy's Marvin Harrison and Reggie Wayne: have 16 catches for 180 yards, one TD."

    All season long fans moaned about not keeping Branch and Givens and how without them we weren't going to win anything and how Caldwell was awful and our receiving corps was the worst in the league and blah blah blah. When I saw these numbers and thought to myself that we are within one win of another SuperBowl appearance and people doubted the Pats and how they handle things after letting some vets go, I guess BB and the braintrust in NE know what they are doing.

    40 yard combine speed is somewhat overrated.

    I was looking at his numbers and pedigree on the web.

    Question: how did this guy go unsigned for six weeks of the season.

    Saw on ESPN, Gaffney is leading recievers in the playoffs with receptions and yards. And ofcourse Reche Caldwell is second in receptions this post season.

    I also read an article,that Shawn Payton said it is hard to believe that Gaffney & Caldwell where on streets before this season....BB & SP are studs we should never question their knowledge....

    Meanwhile Marques Colston was the fourth to last player selected in the 2006 NFL draft.

    Let's review this situation:

    Marques Colston or Willie Andrews?

    Even the Saints admitted they had no idea he was going to be that good. No one did.

    But it's still weird to look back at stuff like that.

    Yes, indeed! Every draft pick counts.

    I like Gaffney's abilty especially after seeing him toast the SD defense for over 100 yards. He has a few question marks to me tho. He's dropped a few deep balls this year and he does not play over the middle. I like his style of play and his cap number is perfect for us.
