draft is WR heavy.. but this sucks
Damn, that sucks.
Oh Well, Theres goes a good WR and a great thread.
That would be great n all if the Pats knew how to pick em...
I plan to have fun calling them the Pittsburgh Bens.
We'll see what happens in less than 2 weeks. Really doubt they will pick a WR with the #1. Probably mid-rounds for the best busts.. er, I mean, values...
I was torn. 1 minute I wanted Sanders and the next minute I wanted the pick.
Brandon Lloyd we turn our lonely eyes to you.
Sanders over 3rd-pick, most definitely. Past 2nd & 3rd pick WRs were pretty bad...
I fear Patriots may re-sign Lloyd...
I like Sanders but I'm a bit relieved; I wasn't huge on spending a 3rd round pick on a one year deal (no I don't buy that they had a long term deal worked out).
What makes every one think that the team evaluates veteran WRs better than they do rookies? Look at Ocho, Joey Galloway, Doug Gabriel, Donald Hayes and to some extent Stallworth.
Yeah, not that! A almost 1000 yd guy on a cheap contract who already has a year in the system.
It's time for the Patriots' scouting department and offensive coaches
(Daboll, McDaniels, and O'Shea) to prove their worth in selecting a serviceable wide receiver or two. This would give the team a long
term solution at wide receiver.
Belichick should listen to his own organizational people this time around.
When he drafted Chad Jackson, He listened to Meyer instead of heeding
Daboll's thumbs down advice.
My thoughts, Belichick will NOT draft even one receiver. Won't take a chance.
Lloyd fell to the ground reading your post
Here's what the Pats did: they decided what they thought Sanders was worth and made the offer. Period. On to plan B.
Once I saw the offer was only $2.5 million, I assumed the Steelers would match and I think the Patriots figured they'd match as well. I think they just crossed their fingers that (A) Pittsburgh might get miffed at Sanders for forcing the issue by signing the offer sheet and let him go, or (B) wanted the third-round pick more to address other needs.
I can't wait to see what New England's "Plan B" is for WR.
It's ok guys we only need to draft 1 wide receiver now instead of 0 like we would've if Sanders signed. The WR group is almost complete !!
Waits for all the Steelers related people who classified him as a bum to reclassify Sanders as an integral part of their future...
And another one bites the dust. I told all of you not to pencil him into the starting line-up just yet. Now we definitely need to draft two receivers and possibly bring Lloyd back.
I'm curious to see if Lloyd is Plan B.
I was hoping they would take the pick, oh well such is life.
I had a feelin 2.5 was a tad low. Kind if wished it started at 3mill per to really take Pitt out of the mix.
With that said, as we all know, this draft is WR heavy so we have some options. Plus having that 3rd rounder will keep the draft interesting on Day 2.
Brandon Lloyd I hope gets a phone call from us soon.
So you're saying BB has jumped the shark?
When you selectively omit data, conclusions are suspect
Well, it's true that Lloyd gave the Patriots 911yds. But, it's kinda strange that he has not visited any NFL team since his release.
This may in fact be Plan B...
Re-signing Lloyd isn't plan B. It would have to be plan X, as in undetermined value of X. Hopefully the solution would find a different value than last year because 2012's D is next to F for failure.
here's a guess - say hello to Devery Henderson...
And coach may have also asked Lloyd to take a break and get some rest, stay in the area, and leave your phone nearby.
I have no problems with bringing Lloyd back. I think he'd do well here in his second year.
so..it WAS Colonel Mustard in the library with the candlestick...glad THIS "mystery" has been solved....now for Metallica's latest hit...EXIT SANDERSMAN
Right, this team as constituted has no need for a 900 yd WR
Let's see. The competition for reps would be from Jones, Edelman and Jenkins. Yeah, I think Lloyd would do fine. And if ALL of these players played better than Lloyd this year (and last) so much the better. Lloyd provides a reliable target who knows the system.
My point was that sometimes you hit, some times you miss. You say Welker, Moss in FA and one could say Branch, Givens in the draft.
Some around here think that a FA WR would be more of a sure thing than one in the draft. I don't think that's the case.
