    This is one of the major reasons why the Pats can't win the big games.

    Where is Randy Moss's replacement at? :mad:

    Yes. On a day with 20 MPH winds and 40 MPH gusts, throwing 40 yard bombs would have been the answer.

    I've said it before but I'd like to see this team at at least two WRs of two different skill sets: a speedy deep threat and a physical possession receiver who can also get down field.

    A Torrey Smith and an Anquan Boldin, pretty much.

    I'd say Lloyd and Welker are about the least physically intimidating receivers in the league, one guys too short to effectively attack any part of the field besides the middle 10 yards or closer and the other guy lives on the ground.

    Welker is your deep threat. No.....seriously.....Welker is the Pats deep threat. BB prefers (short) square peg in round hole

    Come on......if you listen to the Lloyd fanboys......Lloyd is a THREAT.....a WEAPON.....until he catches the ball. Then the threat fall down go boom.

    Welker is a deep threat. He doesn't have enough speed to get separation and he's not tall and can't jump so the window for TB12 is about 9 inches in diameter but he needs to be able to hit that window throwing downfield 40 yards into at 35 mph cross breeze. :confused:

    I can't wait for the day when the opposing defenses don't cheap up to the LOS without worry at all about being burned.

    He's a huge threat to the Gillette turf, Lloyd's facemask is probably imprinted into the turf in half a dozen places :D

    Don't underestimate him please. He can also do that nifty spin the ball thing as gets off the turf.

    That deep threat really didn't help matters in 2007 or 2009 playoffs.

    And who was our deep threat in 2001-2004?

    This is one of the last concerns to focus on IMO.

    Apparently folks want to spend $10M on a wide receiver who might work out, instead of re-signing Welker. We may not re-sign Welker, but that would not be because Welker is poor fit, as you guys suggest.

    13 points yesterday
    Lloyd had 6 YAC in playoffs
    Brady has to be perfect on all deep passes because our deep threat Welker can't jump or extend his arms past his ears. (Sorry Wes...luv ya still)
    Just give Brady viable options in all sectors of the field.....How this roster is constructed, the Pats have no down field threat to WIN the 50/50 battles....its all on Brady being perfect over the top.

    You put a deep threat opposite of Lloyd, say like Bowe and this offense is unstoppable. Every inch of the field would have to be respected. Ravens took away the middle of the field and as a result, 13 points from a top 5 offense in NFL history.

    The patriots already have a deep threat.............but they placed him on injury reserve 2 weeks after signing him.

    Welker isn't a deep threat. He is best used in the mid plays. Lloyd also.

    Where is the deep threats at? There are none.

    And it IS important. If you have no deep threats, the defense can lock down the middle.

    Obviously there is more areas to improve on, but, without a deep threat...you won't be winning much of anything.

    Yet, Lloyd has more yards per catch than either Hernandez or Welker. And has more first down catches than any player on the team. Absolute hot garbage. :rolleyes:
