    Should he? Yes. Will he? Probably not.

    I doubt it. With three veterans to work in, they'll probably spot him here and there.

    It will be to his benefit in the long run IMO.

    Hopefully now that he's off the injury report he will. When he has to run off the field after every play he cant get rythm or confidence, I would love to see him get more involved, because he's key.

    I'd love to see it, but I absolutely doubt it. I believe BB when he says that he had things in mind for Jackson which, due to the circumstances, weren't necessary or feasible. Yes, he's 100% according to the report, which means we should see him more, but it won't be much more. Not at least until he definatively proves that he can be better than Gabriel or Gaffney (and no, catching 2 passes doesn't do it).

    I think 20-25 is a bit too much. I would expect maybe 7-10. You don't want to break him in too much, take it week by week, introduce new things each week. I won't mind 7-10 pass plays and maybe more on running plays for blocking. I'd like to see more of his blocking skill

    First of all, it's "wear."

    Second, he'll wear #10.

    Ask and you shall receive! The Tightness Police is here. #10 looks really stupid. However, there is a reason for this. Either Gaffney wanted that number or the Pats gave him that number. Teams will usually assign a new player a number in the teens until the the team feel that this player will stick around, then they will give him a choice in the 80's. I don't think Gaffney will be permanant, I give him a couple of weeks. I hope I'm wrong, the Pats need all the recievers they can find.

    That's probably why they signed him to a 2-year deal with no bonuses to spread out. Can we please institute an aptitude test before giving out posting rights, willy-nilly?

    * Maybe that's a bad sign for Chad -:) Back to the thread subject though and I'd say, yes, he should get that many reps, or more, because it's about time he got on the field and starting playing like s fulltime player. If he's really not playing due to injury that's different. I don't really know either way obviously. When I 1st heard Chad had other issue's I dismissed it but it seems to be something that's hanging around and been said by different sources now. But yes, he should get plenty of reps if he isn't injured.

    The no bonus makes it more likely they'd cut him, not less. Nothing to amortize, no sunk costs.

    Actually all that came from possibly one source. Tom Casale and the "four" posters on this site who all advertised for Casale's show on this website from the same IP Address.

    Sometimes I don't like BB. He takes all the fun out of speculating for me. There really is no "should" for me when it comes to the Pats: if Chad plays a bunch of snaps he deserves it, if he doesn't then he clearly didn't deserve it. At least Parcells had a massive ego so that even if the team was doing well you could second-guess him.

    The pats have always used WR rotations in a game depending on 3 or 2 or even 4 WR so every one will get a rep no worries.The trick of the system is you cannot have a #1 WR guy in all thetime so no point getting one.
    Look for gab,cadwell/troy and gaffey/chad/troy combo out their this weekend.

    Could the tightness police pleas define "tight" as used in these posts. I have never been able to figure out if that was a good or bad trait ever since I first saw it used in relation to Maroney in pre-season.

    Please enlighten me.

    Gaffney took #10 because he wore that number in college at Florida.

    Come on, it can't be as simple as that. Why the hell would he choose 10 just because he likes the number and/or has worn it before. Who has ever heard of such a thing. There must be some kind of conspiracy going on below the surface.

    My guess: only if he performs perfectly ("a perfect 10") will the Pats bequeath him a tight number in the 80s. Everyone knows this is SOP in the NFL.

    Hmm, three veterans "to work in" at week 7...that brings up this point to ponder: right now Chad Jackson ranks average among the team's WRs in tenure working with Tom Brady and the Pats offensive schemes -- behind Brown and Caldwell, but ahead of Gabriel and Gaffney. Wow.

    This team is LOADED with offensive talent but has a ways to go in terms of gelling. The beautiful thing is that they're 4-1 and only 4 of their remaining 11 games are against teams with winning records. Even with some growing pains they should take the division easily while finding their rhythm, then hit the playoffs at full steam. I like this team, a lot.

    CJ should get that many reps or more. He has more potential than any other wideout on this team, and the only way he is going to live up to that potential is if he plays in the game. He admitted himself that the speed of the pro game was a big adjustment, he needs to be in the game as much as possible to become adjusted to the pros.

    I don't think Caldwell was signed to be anything above the #3, and he will be a very good #3. But with Jackson off the injury report, I think he should replace Caldwell and join Gabriel as one of the two wideouts on the field in the 2 WR packages.

    The only one who should have his reps restricted, is probably Jabbar Gaffney. I know this is a fluid situation, but remember, he has been on the Patriots team less than two weeks.;)
