    I think he will start on Sunday, but I think he will ultimately be #4. I think my #1 and #2 predictions will be different than most because I have Moss as #3 behind Welker and Stallworth.

    Ok, let the flaming begin for not have Moss as #1.

    He'll be our #2 receiver for a long time to come. Maybe not in terms of talent, but in terms of production.

    I think Gaffney could find himself looking for employment when Troy Brown returns. A couple nice games by Washington and I'd say it's likelier to happen. I'm not a big fan of Jabar's.

    Depends on how Moss pans out. But assuming all goes according to plan, he's a solid #4.

    Wait and see, guys. They're going to get into that four wide set against teams like San Diego and Baltimore, and he's going to catch 7 and 12 yard curls and outs all day long. He's going to produce, and he will make Stallworth's life difficult.

    Yeah, I hate when a guy comes in half way through the year and becomes the BEST WR in the playoffs. He put up better numbers than a future HOFer in Harrison and better numbers than a superstar in Wayne.
    You're crazy if you think he's going to be replaced by Troy Brown. Troy is a great guy, but he couldn't be half as productive as Gaffney as a WR at this point.

    Agreed. Randy, Wes, and Ben are going to get in the end zone more than Gaffney, but as a position, drive player ... he might wind up having more value than Welker. Remember, Gaffney's whole career was spent catching passes from David Carr, and even still he was putting up 50+ a year. Could be interesting to see what he does now, I don't think NYJ and SD were fluky games for him.

    I place him at #4 assuming Moss plays and considering that Troy is on PUP. However, in terms of the Jets game, he's the receiver Brady is most familiar with of those available. If he's fully healthy, he could fluctuate between 1 and 4 in that game alone depending on how they use Moss. Don't forget that Gaffney missed a good portion of pre-season as well.

    :rofl: So I can't count and can't read, when did that become critical for polling? We can start worrying about Gaffer Wednesday when the first injury report comes out.

    This just shows another angle on the tremendous depth on this team.

    -Moss should be the #1.
    -Stallworth could be a #1, easily is a #2
    -Welker led his team in catches, and could be close to that this year, although he will be 3rd or 4th in # of downs played
    -Gaffney acted like a #1 in the playoffs
    -Washington is the sleeper, IMO. I could honestly see him go anywhere from inactive to starting. His potential is immense, and he just has never put it together. This kind of offense could be where he does. He is a big target, and a good blocker. I can see him moving up the depth chart and seeing a lot more time than anyone expects. Or he couldbe inactive.

    Add Watson to this, and then factor in that Tom Brady is famous for spreading the ball. I think this depth, along with the fact that these guys have very different skill set, is much, much more dangerous than a team with 2 stud WRs, when you factor in Brady is throwing the ball.

    In a system where if you are open Tom Brady find you, and you can name off 6 guys who can get open, the potential of this passing game is huge.

    The result that I see is rather than 'settling' for what is open Brady will have choices of who to throw to, and we will have more big plays in the passing game than we have ever seen.

    Our Wr corps up until now has been "someone get open and Brady will find you" and it is starting to look like "guys are open and Brady can choose who to throw to".

    I think he's the #3. Welker is tough to slot (no pun intended) because he simply can't lineup on the outside and if any "starting" WR went down, I couldn't imagine him starting on the outside.

    Thus, I rate Gaffney ahead of him, assuming Moss & Stallworth are the starters.

    Even then, I could see Gaffney starting over Stallworth.
