    Never have I seen a rookie wideout so hyped as in these Forum pages. Facing a wide open opportunity to show his stuff and to contribute something after being called out by two team captains, Chad "The Stump" Jackson contributed nothing yet again today.

    Sad to say Belioli has a bad track record with their recent #2 picks. Marquis "Game Inactive" Hill, Bethel "Deep Fly ONLY" Johnson, and now Chad "Can't Catch The Deep Fly" Jackson. He even spread the can't catch the long ball disease to other harder working wideouts.

    With free agency, cuts and every other opportunity this waste of a #2 pick gets TIGHT every time he's on the field and fails to pull his weight. Sure he's a rookie but face it he's had MONTHS of team meetings, coaching and whatever and still he fails to contribute to the 53.

    It's obvious that like with Gabriel, Tom Brady wastes no valuable seconds in the pocket searching for whatever sector of the galaxy Chad Jackson has cluelessly wandered into. Sad, given the lack of talent in the veteran wideout competition in this year's squad. All size, speed and physique, but not a player above the neck.

    Ridiculously premature.

    Good Day.

    #24 Jersey

    Deion Branch. Matt Light. Eugene Wilson. Believe it or not, a .500 average isn't too bad in the second round.

    And, yes, Jackson is a FIRST YEAR bust. That doesn't make him a bust, though, not even close.

    Well, if you mean strictly by 1ST YEAR.. then yeah, can't argue with that. But like I've said repeatedly before, you shouldn't expect much from a rookie WR. If he's still Mr. Invisible this point next season, then yes, you could be looking at a real bust. But this is his first year, let's cut him some slack.

    Actually, I thought he did a great job run blocking today, which was literally the only thing he was called upon to do.

    If there are specific plays in which you thought he failed to do his job out there today, be my guest and please list said plays.

    Awesome we win 40-7 and you still find something to complain about. :) Love the negativity on this board.

    Oh god...

    Now I am not saying Belichick is doing the wrong thing not playing him but come on, how can he be a bust after one season? Consider this...

    Jackson has been injured a lot. Missed quite a lot of games.

    Hasnt gotten much playing time if any in plenty of the games he was active.

    When he did play the ball was rarely, rarely thrown to him. When it was I saw some good things. In the Jets game he dropped one pass then made a superb catch, followed by a 20 yard TD catch. Against Buffalo he got a TD on a nice throw by Brady, nice long pass. Against Minnesota, he made a great TD scramble after the catch. Brady also threw to him late in the fourth and Jackson made a good catch for 30 yards which was called back for some BS penalty. Against the Bears he slowed down, sure. But all WR's make a mistake and Chad is a 21 year old rookie.

    I havent seen him given much of a chance aside from a few occasions which he has been thrown to.

    Oh and I think Jackson will crack the starting lineup next year considering this...

    Troy Brown retires.

    We dont sign a huge free agent name at WR.

    Jackson stays healthy and has a good TC and Preseason.

    Look at our WR's...

    Caldwell, obviously our best right now.

    Troy Brown, old, decent but was dissapointing today with dropped passes, he shouldnt be a starter still, he is 36...

    Gaffney, too many dropped catches, certainly not starting material.

    Kight, no no no.

    Jackson, hasnt been given much of a chance. Let him show his stuff and see if he is the man to be with Caldwell as a starter.

    I guess that Ben Watson was a 1st year bust. So was David Givens.

    Let's not worry about how he has (not) performed this year. Let's look at his body of work 5 years from now.

    What perverse possibly sexual attraction does this consistent non-contributor have to fans of the Forum?

    It's obvious that he stacks up poorly compared to other wideouts taken in this their 1st year. Would that we had New Orleans' 7th round pick at WR. Hint: that's not complementary to Jackson.

    If another Patriot contributed so little relative to the hype and # of threads posted HERE about Jackson folks would be up in arms.

    Why does Jackson get a free pass? Excuse du jour?

    {Insert numerous meaningless stats about a few fine wideouts' 1st years, while neglecting the vast preponderance of other WR BUSTS with CJ type stats}

    Remember, Tom Brady is his QB. You know, the guy known as the QB "whose favorite receiver is the open man", which is obviously not Jackson. Hmmmm!

    Why is Brady calling out newbies to "do what the coaches tell them?"
    Why is Brady NOT throwing to Jackson?
    It's not like Brady has too many skilled alternatives.
    Think before you respond.

    Tom Brady isn't not throwing to Chad Jackson. He's been injured and when he plays, they are limiting him to running plays right now.

    The reason there are so many threads about Jackson is b/c there are so many people like you are are trying to put him down. Dave Thomas hadn't done anything until today really, you didn't see people whining about his lack of production. Garret Mills isn't contributing at all this season, no one seems to have a problem with that. The fact is, BB does not concern himself with a player's stats, when they were drafted, whether they are contributing as much as fans had hoped, etc., etc. He'll use his players as he sees fit.

    I'll start worrying about Chad Jackson when BB starts to seem worried about Chad Jackson. For now, I'll remain optimistic and hopeful that he will be a great player.

    Right. That's realistic. As if.

    EDIT: Whoopsie! For some reason I read your post of Watson as Graham, whom I did trash as a bust back on USENET. See above. DUH!

    * IMO, Jackson is ahead of M Hill -:)

    I guess you are unfamiliar with the draft process. 2nd rd picks are judged on year 2 production. For them, year 1 is an indoctrination period. 1st rd picks should be year 1 contributors. Your expectations were never realistic, therefore you set yourself up for disappointment, and are venting your frustration unjustifiably on a young player who is maturing. I guess a 10-4 record and a 40-7 win puts you in a foul mood. Congratulations, you're the @$$clown of the day.:)

    *Gasp*.....so? A WR doing little in his first year is hardly anything to stop the presses about. But I agree that some people on this board were a little disillusioned about the kind of impact he would make this year.

    THERE is the reason for so much emotion ...
    both pro and con ...
    about Chad Jackson.

    So many of us fell in love with him on draft day
    and now feel stood up.

    I was excited about Chad Jackson as well. He was good deal. He came in the second round and had great physical ability and potential. However I realized that there was a good chance he would not set the NFL on fire right away, and that this does not mean he is a bust. In fact I remember there was a thread before the season where most seemed pretty certain that Jackson would surpass Caldwell as the number two receiver behind Branch, and I was not so sure. This does not mean that I wasn't excited about this guy, and I still am.

    **crap stirrer**

    How 'bout those accursed Chiefies, they have a double whammy tonight the Hermie hug and the Triplett toss.

    Heh patchick, David Anderson had a sweet play today; it got me thinking of your offseason vote and wishing BB had tried to land either him or Hass, though I only know one rookie I'd wish the Pats hadn't taken at this point. (It's not Jackson you darned pissah!)

    Lol. I was about to post "Are you confusing Watson with Graham?" Watson spent almost all of his rookie year on IR after reporting late to camp.
