    We really need to bring him back. Gaffney looked awful out there. Washington....we really don't need his special teams help.

    I believe he's some guy who now works in Florida as a personal trainer.

    By the way....

    Kelly Washington was GREAT in special teams today.

    Very active...very aggressive.

    Props to him.:rocker:

    I'd name him the best special teams player if Hobbs hadn't returned that td.

    All right, all right, I'll admit when I'm wrong. My one defense is that I would still take Googly as a receiver over Washington; however, I admit I completely misjudged Wash as an ST guy.

    Washington is more valuable to this team. Serve me up some crow.

    Reche was last seen trying out for the Jets.

    Likely conversation.....

    Mangini: "Well Reche, if we sign you do you think you could give us any inside information for this Sunday's game?"

    Reche: "Nothing that you don't already know, the Pats are going to destroy you!"

    Kelly Washington......another slacker and malcontent(not!).

    My goal is not to dump on Reche.

    I just think his value to the Pats has been overstated on here.

    He did a "nice" job for us last year. But he truly had no place on this team this year.

    If injuries crop up, he may be back.

    The Charger scouts have probably already contacted Reche's agent to come in for a visit this upcoming week. I doubt it will help.

    Funny, but I didn't see the Gaffney and Washington show out there today. Did I miss their 12 catches for 300 yards and 4 touchdowns? I don't recall many people suggesting Reche should be kept over Moss, Stallworth or Welker, after all.

    Gaffney was solid, but Welker and Moss were more out in the fore front... While Washington was more focused on Special teams, you will see him enough during the season..

    I'm not trying to knock them at all. I just don't get the crap being given to Caldwell after this game. It's petty and stupid, especially because the 2 players he was supposedly competing against showed relatively little as wide receivers.

    I do hope that Reche gets resigned.
    But only because I believe one of our worse WRs will have some trade value before game 6.

    What were they suppose to show with Moss and Welker getting the majority of the receptions?

    They are the 4th and 5th receivers. Gaffney had a nice 1st down reception and Washington was a monster on ST's.

    Reche just had no place on the team as the way the team is currently structured, he has little to offer.

    Are you going to claim that Reche couldn't have done what Gaffney did today?

    He probably could. But Gaffney is a better receiver. More dependable. Smarter.

    No big deal. Props for owning up. Washington IS a very talented receiver, but look who he's had in front of him his entire career (and continuing this season).

    Yes. I'll claim that. Gaffney played 37 snaps, which was second most amongst WR's. I seriously doubt that Caldwell would be in for 15 plays, let alone 37, if he were still here.

    This is funny. ANYONE in the league can sign Reche and give up nothing, and won't even have to guarantee a season's pay. Why should someone give a draft in a month? BTW, there is only one "worst" and that is Reche, unless you think we should put Childress on the roster, and then trade him.

    Were he brought back for a veteran minimum Reche would be WR insurance in case of injury... nothing more nothing less... but there is value there...

    No matter how high everyone is from today's game Moss and Stallworth do have a history of injuries, and BB wants to make sure the Franchise has access to the tools he needs for another SB ring.

    Whether Reche would come back given his position on the depth chart is another matter - I'd expect he'd be looking for a better situation for the low money he'd make coming back - and for that reason I doubt we'll see him here again, though I don't doubt BB would mind having him.

    OK so you think its funny...
    There were about a dozen serious injuries today.
    I didn't say trade RECHE, I said trade one of our WRs within the first 6 weeks.
    He was our leading reciever last year.
    Except for the much higher salary we may have kept him.
    IMO (as WR talent)

    T Brown> Reche > Gaffney > Washington
    and I don't know about C Jackson.
    But almost everyone agrees that Reche deserves a spot on some roster.

    What you said was anyone can sign him...yes before game 1 they could have guaranteed his salary for the year. That changes now.
    I do not see how it is so far fetched to believe that we could get a 5th,6th or 7th for a WR before Jacson or Brown come off PUP.

    ???

    No, anyone could sign him right now for nothing. Why why they wait until we re-sign him and then give us something of value for him?
