    It could get even scarier.

    You could have Moss, Stall and Jackson stretching the field vertically and Welker in his usual slot spot.

    If Jackson is back to full health, Am I the only one that finds this scary?

    I think they are saving this for the Steelers.

    Re: When the Pats go 4 wide.....

    I think they are making a good faith effort to get him on the active roster but might lock him down to IR. He had ACL surgery in January of this year. I can't imagine he is close to 100%.

    But after the stink he and his agent made about how they would file a grievance if he was IR'd earlier in the year, Pats are doing a little CYA on this one.

    If CJ gets good, it will be the most unstoppable 4-some in NFL history.
    I do not think I'm exaggerating.

    I really like the prospect of CJ and would be VERY disappointed if he gets IRed. Give him a shot and cut Gaffney with our sincere thanks.

    Think Washington would be the one to go. CJ can play special teams and Gaffney is a proven performer on the big stage (See last year's playoffs).

    I'm with you. I can't wait to see Jackson out there. It is truly scary to consider that he has the potential & talent to be the second best receiver on this team.

    If Jackson produces, could that spell the end of Stallworth next season?

    He doesn't even have to catch anything. He's just gotta run down field as fast and far as possibly, taking a corner or safety with him. We got other that can catch passes.

    Re: When the Pats go 4 wide.....

    I don't think that Jackson would add value on the field at the same time as Moss and Stallworth, I think he would add value when used in a rotation. Imagine if you are a corner and you have to cover two barnburners who keep alternating and taking you deep all game. You will get tired.

    Chad Jackson: 6'1 215lbs 40: 4.32
    Donte Stallworth: 6'0 200lbs 40: 4.19
    Randy Moss: 6'4 210lbs 40: 4.29


    That's frightening right there. Really is. Then you throw Welker in there, the little guy who is a bytch to cover, that's just scary right there.

    It is.
    How the hell do you defend the run with that mess pulling the D apart downfield? What a dream team for Brady! And the O-line...the best in the business...
    Oh, and who covers the TE?

    I hope no one's forgetting Ben Watson,
    4 wide, plus 1 TE

    Re: When the Pats go 4 wide.....

    This would be almost uncoverable. AT LEAST one of them has to be in single coverage, not good the the other team.

    Guys, in case you haven't noticed, if you line up inside which is what you would have to do in a 4 wide spread, speed is not all that important. Look at how much Welker is contributing and I would love to see his 40 next to CJ's. I honestly don't think CJ brings anything at all to this team except to spell Donte and figure out if we should resign him. I completely agree with xxMarkd400x

    Re: When the Pats go 4 wide.....

    Not true. You could only rush 2 at the LOS and keep 9 in coverage. I think Belichick himself has called this before... I'm sure I've seen 8 DBs against the Colts in some previous game.

    Re: When the Pats go 4 wide.....

    If you have a TE plus 4 wide who's doing the running that needs to be defended? Brady?

    You simply drop 8 or 9 in coverage, and only allow the underneath routes. It can be defended.

    Just because Welker is not a burner does not mean speed cannot be an asset in the slot. Moss has lined up in the slot this season. It's all about utilization.
