    Right??

    And I should mention that Gaffney was my favorite offseason signing and Branch is one my top-5 current Pats.

    A fake re-signing must be coming momentarily.

    Right??

    When you look at it, Hernandez lines up more at WR then TE. The game is all about mismatches and we may be looking at a season that in 5-10 years down the line, people will look back at BB and McDaniels as the ones who changed the game or at least brought it to a different level.

    This could be one hell of a year! :rocker:

    Also I think they bring back Branch.

    Also I think Salas will be very good in this offense. I'd rather have him then Gaffney and Stallworth.

    I'm amazed at how some "football" media types don't know much about him or even how to pronounce his name. Which is why the best Pats coverage is right here on this board. (you just got to sift a little :D )

    I can feel a deal for Megatron in my waters.

    With the amount of times a 3rd WR will ever see the field, why do we need more than Edelman, Salas and Slater on the roster?

    Calvin...
    3/13/2012: Signed an eight-year, $150.5 million contract. The deal contains $60 million guaranteed, including a $16 million signing bonus

    He would be making more then BRADY!

    Plus I heard he would be a bust in this sophisticated passing attack :rolleyes:

    I hear Wilfork was so adept at catching the ball and running with the ball last year that he will be the deep threat WR opposite Lloyd on a lot of plays.

    An injury to Lloyd, it'd be comforting to have another wideout who is proven in this offense like Branch or Gaffney. Salas, we don't know what we have there. Slater has contributed next to nothing as a wideout. And Edelman has shown to do well in the slot but outside, nothing.

    I'd love to see Revis play some bump and run with Wilfork!

    The end of the wide receiver era for the New England Patriots! :eek:

    Expect, at least, twelve tight ends in training camp next summer! :rolleyes:

    Exactly, and it's not as if Lloyd has proven anything in this offense with a perfectionist QB like Brady targeting him, either. Ditto Salas who has also not shown much potential outside the numbers. Ahern has also missed time every season, and while there is depth behind him it's not like that guy has either (when he was on the field). So it's not like the concern isn't legit, whether Bill is choosing to acknowledge it's existence at this time or not.

    I do think he is taking full advantage of the simple fact that he knows at least Deion will be there if push comes to shove. Not so sure Gaffney will wait past a week or two. And unless they IR Shiancoe it's going to be a tough roster to add a WR to for at least 3+ weeks because that is how long they have to keep Hoomanawanui around for.

    Have faith. Taylor is back at practice so he must have taken the vacant slot on the PS this AM...

    In other news, Vereen and Shiancoe remain out.

    Nevermind. It's seems the roster changes hourly these days.

    This was going to be my point exactly. Hernandez is a WR for the most part and we have to get used to looking at it that way.

    Really? (Sincere question.) I don't know Salas at all. If he can be that good then I'm happy.

    Still, I was SO excited about Gaffney.
