    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:

    The kid should never have been playing this season in the first place.

    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.

    What a loser. Plays one game and gets hurt again. Get the bum off this team.

    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
