    i mean seriously, nobody has signed him yet, hes got some more tryouts but we could bring him back easily and give him the opportunity to play. What has Gaffney done so far? Uh nada.

    There is a reason nobody has signed him. In fact it's the same reason we cut him.


    HE SUCKS.

    No thanks. I think it's safe to say, the C-Jack era is over at this point. :rolleyes:

    No..... they should have kept him before, IMO. However, now that they've cut him loose, there's no reason to bring him back. If they want to bring back a former player, there are better options available.

    Having honored followed his frequent statements that the best players stay, I could see Belichick giving CJax a second chance.

    Bill might invite him to join the PS, and an invitation to next year's training camp.

    Sometimes when you want deal with a Mule, you have to first hit him in the head with a 2x4, to simply get his attention.

    ugh...

    He has not signed anywhere. What does that tell you. And Gaffney has done more this year than CJck has done in his three year career (not a whole heck of alot).

    Do you have a link for that?? Jones on the PSquad I haven't seen that and considering he was cut late Saturday, the earliest he could re-sign is 24 hours later...or late last night...
    I agree..at this point Chad is not on the radar...seriously..he was a BIF college player..bur?? There are a many many players that were great in college but can't make it in the pros.. Give it a rest...please...
    And please don't compare Xhad with what Gaffney has done in his career..Jaclson can't even get on a pro team..Gaffney has played 6 years and is in his 7th year..He's a proven pro..Jackson can't even get to a roster spot..what does that say??And you'd take him over a peoven player?? My guess is that yout somehow stuck in the past with Chad..he's your guy....Get over it..he MAY be invited to camp next year..but that's it...Hey you know there is Arena Football in a few months...

    My mistake. Someone had mentioned to me sat night that Jones was signed to the ps. He was obviously wrong. I just checked Reiss, and the website, and found nothing on who has been signed to take Matts spot on the Ps. It appears to be open. Sure isnt CJ.

    If Reche Caldwell was brought in for a workout this past friday (I read that here on the site yesterday), I wouldn't close the door for Jackson coming back. A injury to someone would have to happen.

    I may get banned for saying this :D , but i'd rather have an experienced Caldwell, over cjack, who has yet to really do anything. I seem to remember alot of love for Caldwell, prior to the colts afccg. Then, we all wanted him gone. :rolleyes: I'd take him back. I thought that year he did pretty good, not great, but good.

    If Jackson's issue was his work ethic he is gone for good. The Patriots would be more likely to try and get Doug Gabriel (who also appeared to suffer from that issue), who actually caught a few passes. And, yes, that is sarcasm.

    I would take Caldwell back over Jackson in a New York minute. He did drop the pass in Indy, but the week prior he caught the pass against San Diego that allowed the Pats to play Indy and was a reliable receiver during the season. And as Caldwell's visit may be just an emergency roster update as Gaffney (who earned his spot by performing the end of 1006 and 2007) is banged up, it may mean nothing.

    As for Jackson, he played in 14 games and has 3 TDs, 13 receptions (average: less than 1 reception per game, somebody else can find who many series he was in as a receiving option for those receptions with his splendid ability to get open). My opinion of him was set when he dropped a pass in stride from Brady his rookie season and seemed to point to everyone but himself explaining the drop. If that was not media nerves and is still his mentality, regardless of his potential, he has no place on the Patriots and hopefully has HD or plasma in his living room to watch the games.

    Congratulations, you have started the two most stupid threads on the front page of this forum, arguing that Matt Cassel was not very good and that somehow we need Chad Jackson, a guy who has tried out with teams STARVING for receiver help (like Miami) and gotten nary a nibble.

    Gaffney was on the field a decent amount of time.. But he wasn't open that I could see. He should have been considering how they were doubling up on Moss and Welker.

    Now, I will say this, on the sacks that Cassel took because the O-line get trounced, we don't know what the plays were.

    Starting to wonder if Gaffney might be the product of one Tom Brady as we have seen alot of former WRs who were. These first two weeks, I've really had to scratch my head and wonder about Gaffney, even in the pre-season, I still remember that 30 yard pass going right through his hands.

    BRiZ, as you know, I have no issues bringing Chad Jackson back, we keep hearing about Great STer Sam Aiken and the guy hasn't gotten on the field and Kelly Washington doesn't have nearly the game breaking ability of Chad.

    I'm shocked he hasn't signed anywhere. I know he's had about 4-5 tryouts with the Raiders, Bengals, Titans and Fins and I think the Rams are bringing him in today or tomorrow, but at this point, I think his head is all screwed up.

    He's still a really young kid who just needs time to mature and grow up. Maybe being tossed out into the street by BB is exactly what the kid needs to straighten his act up and realize that it takes more than just natural athletic prowess to succeed in the NFL. I would love for BB to take him back and give him a second chance.

    You're a major Sam Aiken fan aren't you. Isn't it great to have Sam taking up an inactive roster spot every week ?

    Some of you guys are nuts. Gaffney made some great blocks today that freed up important plays... more than 1 welker screen that would have gone nowhere if Moss or some other WR who doesn't block as good had been in there instead. He was also they WR blocking on one of faulk's big plays.

    Look, even Moss didn't get many passes thrown his way. Cassel is the reason that some of these other WRs aren't getting as many opportunities IMO.

    Bring back CJack?

    I'd bring back Troy Brown before I brought back blockhead Jackson.

    Watch Cassel's two biggest pass plays (the 26-yard Welker screen and the 22-yard screen to Faulk) and you'll see Gaffney blocking downfield on both. He's solid. Jackson didn't work out - no one's more disappointed than I, but we all have to just let it go.

    I love Gaffney. The guy is a solid player. He's not flashy but when his number is called, he's ready and he rarely lets you down. I think Gaffney will get another extension next year.

    Jones isn't eligible for the Practice Squad.

    Comparing Jones to Chad Jackson is foolish because they are different types of players.

    Jones is a return specialist. Chad Jackson, in college anyways, was a primary receiver.

    I'll be honest, I am still baffeled by the cutting of Chad Jackson. I know that Reiss said that Jackson hadn't earned Brady's trust, but in fairness, neither was really on the field at the same time, so its hard for one to develop that sort of trust.

    Last year was a lost year because the Pats put Jackson on the Kicking Coverage unit and Jackson blew out his knee against the Colts (AFCCG in January of 2007). Brady didn't play in a single pre-season game so he and Jackson couldn't develop the kind of trust that develops during game play. Cassel was trusting of Jackson.

    But, enough of that. Jackson is gone. So is Jones.
