    He had only what one catch? I think he only played in about 10 plays and none in the second half...why do you think this is?

    Because some guys named Moss and Welker were too busy getting open and catching TD's.

    Stallworth's time will come. Who's featured will vary from week to week based on who we're playing.

    Stallworth only makin' one catch, not really concerning me too much.

    I was however very impressed with Kelley Washington on special teams. He brought a lot of energy.

    If Moss had signed before the Pats brought him in for talks, do you think he would have signed. I bet he is pissed that he is the #3 guy when he is playing for his FA contract.

    Shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, he's sleeping.

    While the Chargers are game-planning all week for Moss. Stallworth will simply get his opportunity at another time.

    Trust me, he still plays for us.

    Next week it may be Moss with 1 catch for 10 yards, whereas Stallworth has the big 8 catch 100+ yards. That's the Pats O for you. It's all about matchups.

    Re: Where was Stallworth??

    I think that that is the "crest" of the NE Patriots...that it is WHATEVER happens to create a win...IS ALL THAT matters...I guess it is like the Marines (From what I have heard...I was never in the military)...It is the team achieving the objectives...not the single effort or success by ONE particular team member...and that is somewhat tough for these guys that WOULD BE the OFFENSE for a particular team to get used to here I would imagine...that they are not the ONLY go to guy in town anymore...but just ONE of a TEAM!!! I think most posters are right...some days Moss will be the "go to" guy...the next weekend will be Stallworth's chance...and so on!

    Reiss: Stallworth in on only 9 plays

    http://www.boston.com/sports/football/patriots/reiss_pieces/2007/09/wr_snaps_1.html

    I thought he was just a decoy and didn't get the ball a lot, I didn't realize how few plays he was actually in on. Interesting...I wonder why?

    Someone I know at the stadium said he didn't learn the playbook too well.

    I didn't think anything of it but maybe now I will start too.

    It is what it is. Could have just been the gameplan. Could be something we see all year long, whether it's related to Stallworth's practice performance or not.

    It also could be that, as Gresh or Tanguay mentioned on the postgame, that the Pats want to keep the tape level down on Stallworth for the Chargers to keep them off-balance.

    I goota think they will need him once teams see the tapes of Moss (not that he can be stopped anyway).

    I think it was just part of the gameplan, we used mainly 2 guys in the recieving game. I think he will have some big weeks, maybe next week. Gaffney and Washington seem to be the guys who are in during the running plays though. Kelley was very good on special teams today.

    Maybe because he and Gaffney were the leading WR's in preseason and BB wanted the Jets to gameplan for Stallworth, in the mean time BB knew Moss would be ready. I hope this is the case.

    Re: Reiss: Stallworth in on only 9 plays

    With Moss beating triple teams who cares if stallworth was in for 9 plays, he will get his chances as the year comes around...if anything he will definately get his share of one on ones now that Moss torched a good Jets secondary.....
    2 more things....

    1. When Pennington collapsed, was I the only one thinking about those idiots that were calling for the Jets to take out Brady on a Jets Message board??

    2. Im such an idiot, I actually thought Moss wouldnt start when I set my FF team on wednesday, and switched him out of my actives to my reserve for Anthony Gonzalez(IND) who had 0 catches.....

    That is brutal that you didn't start Moss. I would get rid of Gonzalez, if I were you BTW.

    Eventually, they will try to do a better job covering Moss or Welker, then Stallworth will have his day. Or else Maroney will run for 250 yards. This is really picking nits.

    It was encouraging to see Donte smiling on the sidelines, jabbering with his teammates, including Moss, even when he wasn't an integral part of the attack today. That showed me he's 'getting it' as a Patriot and his time WILL come.

    120 WR participations on 65 offensive snaps?
    That's fewer than 2WRs on the field per play.

    Gaffney's high count is the second surprise.

    btw, Kelley Washington WAS a factor on special teams.

    Good point. SOMEBODY is going to have low numbers of reps when that happens ...
