    They were one of the huge pieces in todays win. Personally, the offensive line to me had the best performance of the evening. Tons of people played good. Defense, ST, Offense (Eventually).

    But how bout dem recievers? They get no respect. "The worst recieving core in the NFL". Jabar with two straight 100 yard games, Reche bites his former team in the ass with the TD and then beating the SD CB down the sideline setting up the Ghosts game winner!

    And best of all, Troy Brown. The Play of the game with the strip, bails us out! Troy, please stay another year!!!!!!!!!!!

    PROPS TO THE PATRIOTS RECIEVERS!

    Gaffney has completely resurected his career. He's a keeper.

    Caldwell and Gaffney have BOTH resurrected their careers and, hopefully, they will be given contract extensions.

    BTW, did Chad Jackson see the field at all?

    Oh yeah. Caldwell goes without saying. I never saw Jackson take a snap.

    I don't think CJ saw the field at all, I didn't see him.

    it still blows my mind Gaffney was on the street during the season.

    This offense is only gonna get better. I'd liek to see Dave Thomas a little more involved in the apss offense, he has better hands than watson.

    Watson need to work on the jugs over the summer.

    Gaffney -- 18 receptions for 207 yds in two playoff games.

    If both continue to work hard (and all signs say they will), an off-season with Brady will do wonders. Hopefully, we'll have a trio of Florida wideouts with Jackson in the mix.

    Caldwell is already signed for next season.

    But I think an offseason of playing catch with Tom will make the receivers even better. :)

    Gaffney was a great pickup, I am glad we gave him a 2 year deal, now we have him signed for cheap next season along with Caldwell. They both played great.

    Gaffney is the new weapon for Tom Brady in the 2006 AFC Playoffs. Clearly Tom Brady struggled throughout the game but the Patriots drive at the end of the first half provided hope for the team in the second half.

    Yeah, Gaffney was a great pickup. But Reche was the pickup of the offseason. When I originally saw the ESPN news thing on the bottom of the TV while on vacation in Florida, it said Pats sign Reche Caldwell. I was just like, WHO? Every other team was out having a jolly old time throwing money at various free agents.

    Remember -- he's a late arrival to the team. And prior to Gaffney's recent performances, Brady was struggling to find another WR to pair with Caldwell. No QB can successfully execute an offense with ONLY one reliable WR (Reche). Graham, Watson, and Faulk are receiving options -- but they're not wideouts. ..and Troy is more of a short area receiver. But now, Brady has two downfield options from the WR corps -- and we're seeing some results. There's still a ways to go -- but the future is promising...

    These guys are the real deal. The Pats literally stayed in the same, or similar, sets the entire game. Jackson and Kight both didn't play a snap on offense. Not quite sure what that means, but I think they felt having a veteran presence (Troy) along with an extra blocker (Tight ends) was more important than playing the rookies!

    Yes I know. Gaffney has more receptions in the postseason than in the regular season.

    Deion Branch ....... where is he now?
    Doug Gabriel ........ enjoy that first pick in the 2007 NFL draft!
    Chad Jackson ....... well, maybe next year?

    Gaffney and Caldwell are fine players and keepers no doubt. Just please, let's all hope and pray that neither are this teams (default) #1 WR next year and beyond.

    why do every 1 say they are not #1 WR.....both were tremendous and having played in florida against each other seem to play as a awesome tandom.

    reche ran 4.38 and jabar ran the same 4.38 too....C.J by the way is 4.32.

    Now that he is totally assimilated into the offense - and now that Brady seems extremely comfortable with him - why can't Gaffney be considered a possible #1? He's had two straight weeks of 10+ catches.

    Let's not exaggerate about 40 combine times for Reche and Jabar.

    http://archive.profootballweekly.com/content/archives2001/draft_2001/combine_analysis_032802.asp

    "In this most athletically gifted group, 40-times ranged from 4.34 to 4.76, with Auburn WR Tim Carter being at the low end of the spectrum and Jackson State WR Thomas Taylor at the other. In Taylor’s defense, he was the biggest wide receiver (6-3 3/4, 219) to run at the Combine. Kansas State WR Aaron Lockett also ran a 4.35, but his diminutive size (5-7 3/8, 155) may discourage some suitors. Florida State WR Javon Walker was the only other receiver to run under a 4.4 electronically."
