    What is the last day that the Pats have to decide what to do with Troy?
    I know it's getting close. I'd love to see him on this team,but am not sure where he could fit in, especially with Gaffney playing so well last night.

    Don't laugh, nobody thought he could play corner either, hehe.

    Re: Troy Brown

    He's probably an upgrade over Jackson at corner.

    Re: Troy Brown

    i expect troy to NOT make the team. troy cant play corner, he is a slot cover guy first of all. he is behind gaffney and k washington due to his ST abilities.

    i just dont see how cutting someone else is "in the best interests of the team"

    i think troy was an option all along, in case a boatload of receivers or DBs got hurt. that option will probably not get picked up...

    just my opinion. i love troy so lets hope for a differetn outcome

    I would be shocked if the IR'ed him. He either gets activated to the active roster tomorrow, or cut and put on the shadow roster.

    I hope so. He was a joke last night. Troy gives us more versatility.

    Re: Troy Brown

    I don't want TB as a full time CB. When he played the position his duties were primarily in the slot. He's not a good downfield CB and now even moreso until he gets his game legs in a couple of weeks. I'm not against limited time playing the slot though.

    Re: Troy Brown

    Who would have thought the day would come where the talent on the roster was so thick that Troy Brown couldn't make the team. And we may just be at that point.

    Looking at the 2001 SB team, how many of the skill players would make the team this year?

    Marc Edwards*
    Antowain Smith
    Kevin Faulk*
    Patrick Pass
    JR Redmond

    Troy Brown
    David Patten
    Fred Coleman
    Charles Johnson

    Rod Ruttledge
    Jermain Wiggins
    Arther Love

    * = would make the 2007 team

    Re: Troy Brown

    Troy will be on the roster tomorrow. We need a good tough veteran slot WR to spell Welker. You just cant replace the type of chemistry and experience that the TB connection has together.

    As the weather gets colder, and teams try to mimick the Iggles game plan of roughing up our WR's, Troy's toughness will be extremely valuable IMO.

    LOL - great post. I'm not even sure Edwards beats out Evans, but it seems like a good debate.

    Definitely speaks to the incredible job BB/Pioli have done improving this team over the years.

    Re: Troy Brown

    regarding Brown, I can't wait to see him back. I really hope they bring him on as an all purpose utility man. How do you keep Eddie Jackson and not the 5th most versatile player of all time? ( as determined by the NFL network)

    Re: Troy Brown

    Brown will be activated. He's versatile and as someone else pointed out, it would be good to have someone in the slot to give Wes a breather or two now and again. Plus he's no worse than Jackson is at CB. Jackson might be the single worst player I've seen in a Pats uni in a long time, or at least since the Beisel-Starks lost season of 2005.

    Re: Troy Brown

    Being a slot-only corner is good enough. If something happens to Samuel or Hobbs, Gay moves to being a generic corner, and we need another slot CB.

    I think the Eagles game showed both the importance of having a backup to Welker and the weak state of our current CB depth.
