As if Galloway's inability to pick up the offense wasn't enough of a sign of how much the Pats missed Gaffney, watching him make plays like he did on that tipped ball, just really hit home how important that consistent WR3 is in the Pats/Broncos offensive system. I think most of us (myself included) sort of shrugged our shoulders when Gaffney wasn't re-signed -- no big loss, he'll be easily replaced -- but the reality is that isn't even close to being true. Gaffney switches uniforms that game, and the Pats probably win. Hopefully a solid WR3 emerges, but as of now that void is probably one of the biggest problems on offense, and the Pats let the solution (to a problem that could have been avoided) simply walk. Ironically, the Pats usually seem to know when to cut ties with vet FAs (who rarely go on to have success with other teams) but this is one case where they made a huge whoopsie.
