This was a preseason game, a time to test receivers, a time for free agents and others to step up. Exactly one receiver got open past the line of scrimmage, Big Ben II. LET's REVIEW --------------- BRANCH - We should only discuss players who want to play for the patriots. JACKSON - We only discuss players who are here. We can hope that Jackson can be a contributer for the stretch run or the playoffs, perhaps as early as Game 6, after the bye. CALDWELL - Well, I guess he replaces Davis. CHILDRESS - He did play. Did he ever get open? Did he even return punts or kicks? TROY BROWN - He's fine for a seasoned vet, but he really shouldn't be starting. THE REST COMPETING FOR A SPOT PLAYED ON OTHER CHANNELS THIS WEEK No one else from our squad is remotely ready for the NFL, so I guess we will need to look to other squads.
