    I don't think he's a real good possibility, but he sure is getting cheaper by the minute.

    Would you guys pull the trigger for an an incentives deal, maybe $3 mill guaranteed plus maybe $4M/year for two years?

    I definitely would do it. I know we need other positions resigned and upgraded, but an 3 WR set with Moss, Welker, Housh, Watson at TE and Faulk in the backfield would be impossible to stop. I don't think he's too expensive to at least try it.

    He's a dummy, I think that's the problem. Seriously, very talented and should be sought after. He could be his own worst spokesman, though.

    I'd say skip it. We should be able to draft a decent 3rd receiver or pick one up for less $$ than this guy is looking for. We need lots of help on defense, which is where I think BB is concentrating all his efforts.

    Absolutely not. This guy's ego can't fit inside the stadium. And the article basically confirms that. I'd rather take Ronald Curry, who has more potential, in my honest opinion.

    I would rather get Bodden and Springs and then pick up a Mike clayton type player. Gaffney wont be hard to replace.

    I agree; a guy who drops wide open TD's vs the Colts that end up costing the Patriots a playoff spot shoud not be hard to replace.

    This guy got cut by the Texans lest we forget.........

    Considering the retarded contracts just handed out to Michael Clayton & Brandon Jones, Housh will get his.

    LOL Curry is not a better receiver than Housh. Get real. But Housh will command too much money for the Pats to be interested. Minimum of 7M+ Probably closer to 9M+. If we pay out FA dollars this season, I'd want the targets to be OLB, CB, S, in about that order.

    Gaffney didn't get CUT by the Texans. They chose to let him explore free agency after his rookie contract expired.

    Why wouldn't I be serious? Look what Curry has done with the garbage QBs that the Raiders have.

    Curry doesn't have the ego that Houshmandzedah has. Curry would be less expensive and Curry has the speed and ability for the intermediate routes that the Pats need opposite Moss.

    To be fair, he was cut by the Eagles. I like Gaffney, though.

    How about you read what was actually posted instead of throwing in your erroneous assumptions. I said I felt that Curry has more potential at this point than Housh. I didn't say he was BETTER. And you wonder why you and I have issues. Its cause you don't friggin read what was posted. You just make sh!t up.

    As for what to target, I agree that the Pats need to target those positions, but they also need to target a WR. And most of the WR available should be able to be signed for very modest salaries.

    theres no way he is signing for that low. if he were, every team in the league would be after him. of course we would take him at that price

    Curry is the most underachieving WR in the league. He can't run routes at all. Housh is one of the best WRs in the league. There's absolutely zero comparison between the two. Curry had 181 Yards last season, so I don't know what you mean by "look what he's been able to do" he absolutely stinks.

    Whether or not you like Housh's attitude or if you think he'd be a bad fit for this team because he's too expensive is different than saying he has more "potential."

    Given me Mike Furrey on a one or two year veteran minimum type of deal over paying a lot of money to Whoseyourmamma. Hell, that way you could add a Toomer or Galloway for cheap money and have one of the best WR corp in the league.

    I think Whoseyourmamma is looking to be the guy somewhere. I don't think he is willing to be the third option for Brady even with his reduced salary demands.

    I know that Gaffney was cut by the Eagles. And there was different reasoning there. He was cut because they signed Stallworth.

    I liked Gaffney also. What I find ironic is that the people slamming Gaffney for the dropped catch against the Colts are the same ones who were touting Gaffney after the 2006 season and slamming Caldwell for a dropping a "wide open pass" against the Colts that cost the Patriots a play-off game.

    Why would you mention Moss? He's not part of this thread.

    You clearly weren't around for all the Caldwell bashing and the blaming of Caldwell for the loss in the 2006 AFCCG game. So you clearly don't get the irony of the people complaining about Gaffney in the Colts game this year.

    I don't understand the Housh hate. I guess because he is brash and can come off as a bit of an a-hole, but the guy is an absolute assassin on the underneath over-the-middle stuff. Between him & Welker, Brady would pick apart defenses 9 and 12 yards at a time.

    He'd be worth the money of a 3-year deal, no question.

    Of course, I'd rather the Pats give up a 3rd for Chad Johnson, but the Bengals have been so intransigent with him, I doubt they move him now.

    You've been on this board long enough to know that there are players and coaches who are lightning rods for every mistake they make and not given credit for the good things they did while others get a free pass. Caldwell was one of those lightning rod guys who gets blamed more for the loss to the Colts than the defense who gave up 35 points in the second half of the game.

    Hobbs is the guy now. McDaniels was the guy from the coaching side until he left. I'm sure there will be someone else this year or next.

    Roll back two years when we were linked with Moss and a whole lotta folks said similar things about money and atttitude

    If the guys has his head on, is willing to be a Pat for decent money(a la Moss) and knuckkles down then its hard to imagine how scary the offense would be. Goodel would probably ban it

    Housh on a deal like Stallworths would make a lot of sense.

    If I remember right.

    A large year 2 roster bonus that essentially makes him a FA or is worthy of a solid WR
    if the team decides to pay up.

    I mean, wow. Houshmandzadeh is one of the best receivers in the NFL. If we could have him for $3 million a year, I'd do it in a heartbeat. Line up Moss, Welker, Housh, Faulk, and Watson. Forget about it.

    He's just as good as Gaffney. And he knows the offense.

    He's a posession receiver. We already have the best one of those in the league. No thanks.

    Plus, it's going to take way more than 3 million guaranteed, I don't care how down his market is.
