Alright, here's where my own argument come out. I'm thinking that the Patriots aren't in a bad position just now, vis-a-vis the wide receiver corps/situation. Considering the personnel on hand, they could do a lot without adding anyone else. Why do I say this? Because I believe that Belichick plans to use both WR's and his TE's in the same role, relegating their titles to administrative purposes. At present, NE could line up Gronkowski and Hernandez, Danny Amendola and Jenkins, plus put Ridley in the back field. Which of those threats gets the double coverage? Hernandez is tall and fast, with the ability to knock a defender out of the way. Perhaps he's the true speedy WR we've been looking for. Ah, but then there's Gronkowski who excells at TE, but also has the speed on a post as well as the ability to stretch and pluck it away. Amendola? He's an excellent slot receiver. A known quantity. If he gets in synch with TFB, watch out. No one will miss WWW. Which brings us to Jenkins. Everyone is complaining that's he's a JAG. Perhaps he is. Perhaps he hasn't been able to get into synch with a QB or playbook? Who knows. What his stats DO tell us, however, is that when he's in Man to Man, he has some issues. Those issues aren't a problem with him in Zone coverage, however. So my point is that our offense might well eveolve and play pretty doggone good with those we have to hand, not to mention potentially regaining Edelman. Who gets the double team? Hernandez? Gronk? Amendola? Jenkins? It's likely that teams end up playing zone, and when they do, Jenkin's abilities are upgraded. Zone is like a force multiplier with these guys. I'm not saying that this is how things will play out, but at present, the Patriots have 3 tall targets for TFB, and a fine slot receiver and aa couple decent RB's to run a screen. Could we use another, better, pure WR? Sure. So can every single team. But as it stands, after a couple nights thoughts, I'm not near as concerned as I was earlier this week. Those are my thoughts, anyway. I welcome yours.
