    This sucks. I was really looking forward (hoping) that Tate would emerge as our #3 receiver and return man down the stretch.

    Damn, he looked explosive out there. Very frustrating for him.... Hope the injury isn't too bad.

    Sucks, but I look forward to what he brings to the table when fully healthy next year. I am hoping solid #3 and explosive kick returner.

    Crap, it's like CJ all over again...

    Coulda, woulda, shoulda left him on PUP until week 9 and let him practice for 3 weeks and then just IR'd him...

    What is it with us and 3rd round picks lately. First Crable, then McKenzie, now Tate. Not to mention busts like O'Connell and Dave Thomas

    Gotta love BB, making those moves at the very last minute- now it's too late to gameplan for those changes. I will not be surprised at all to see Stanback active.

    Re: PFT.... Tate to IR..

    We don't know that he tore the same ligament again, or if it was as severe. Most likely he suffered some sort of minor sprain, and will be ready for training camp next year. Remember, many of thought he would go straight to IR. Instead, BB thought well enough of him to give him fairly significant playing time (up until his injury). He looked very solid on kick returns, and if Brady hadn't underthrown/overthrown him two consecutive weeks, he'd have a couple of ridiculously long touchdowns. He's worked hard all offseason, has a good attitude, and appears to be the anti-Chad in terms of his ability to study and run routes. He gets open before using his speed, and is very sudden. I think he'll be a great #3 next year.

    Meanwhile, hurray for Stanback. :singing:

    is Stan the man a valid option in the return game??



    Losing Tate..... hurt with yardage gained after kicks....



    No one has mentioned that yet but me....?

    Am I the only one to notice his strength as a returner more so than a WR:confused::confused::confused:? :confused:

    Re: PFT.... Tate to IR..

    Good points.

    Putting someone on IR this late in the season is different from an injury week 1. There's less time to recover and be in playing shape.

    I believe Tate was seen riding an exercise bike during the second half of the Miami game. So hopefully his injury isn't major, and the Pats have just decided that they were risking too much by rushing him back early, and that it would be better to rest him for the remainder of the year than to risk a major re-injury.

    I think he will be a force for us next year as the #3 WR, and a playmaker in the DeSean Jackson mold. I can't wait to see what he can do when healthy.

    Stanback could be utilized for a few trick plays. Who knows? He use to be a QB so a Wildcat may be an option.


    4.62 40 speed does not impress me but if he can establish himself as a WR....

    We can be tricky and run that wildcat BS

    He is on our roster as a Qb!

    Indy could have a fit with Edelman, Stanback, and Brady in the game! start with edelman in shotgun then switch to brady just to leave them guessing

    :(

    Interestingly, though, the Patriots' press release lists "WR Brandon Tate," but simply says "Isaiah Stanback," no "QB" or "WR."

    What? CJ? Because Tate hurt his knee, he is CJ? Edelman broke his arm. Who is he all over again?


    Why? What harm did it do to activate him that you would like to undo?

    I'm not following your logic on either of these two statements.

    I appreciate your posts, Deus, but c'mon. First of all, you have absolutely no basis for your assertion. The doctors cleared him. He was effective his first game as a returner and runner, and didn't experience any pain. He was something like eleven months into his recovery and rehab at this point, and according to the Patriots he was well able to play.

    Second, we don't know the severity of his injury. It is highly likely he was shut down as a precautionary measure; there's no sense in rushing back from a second injury. As others have mentioned, he was using the exercise bike on the sidelines for the remainder of the game. I guarantee you had he sustained significant damage, he would not have been in that situation. He most likely had a sprain similar to Mayo's, and we simply didn't have the roster flexibility to keep him inactive for the next month with so many other injured players. Don't forget that fans don't have access to the medical reports, so my guess here is just as good as yours, as uncomfortable as you may be with that.

    Frankly, you just like being contrary. I usually respect your opinion, and appreciate that you don't simply go along with the crowd, but sometimes you're remarkably inflammatory and arrogant. No offense. :)

    Despite what you seem to think, it's not about being contrary. When I do things for just that reason, I usually make it pretty clear, with a picture/emoticon or something. In this case here, you had a young kid who wasn't needed. As I stated months ago, my preference was to IR the kid.

    Unless he has a serious injury he'll benefit from the month or so on the field that he couldn't have had if he were IRed at the beginning. He'll be better for not being IRed - unless he has a serious injury but if the knee was ready to go that's just the risk of life in the NFL.

    Okay. That makes a little more sense. That was your opinion, and it was a valid one at the time. I will say, however, that your post was prior to losing Lewis, Galloway, and Edelman. With all due respect, we did need Tate. Edelman is recovering from injury now; he mitigates the need for receiver depth.

    I hope you know that I certainly didn't mean to attack you or anything; I don't believe in insulting or denigrating people. Without context, however, your post in this thread seemed like a very knee-jerk reaction, as though your opinions and views were superior to everyone else's, and we were all foolishly missing the point.

    Or maybe I'm just overly sensitive. :D
