Wonder how Stallworth feels about the Moss deal?

    Stallworth took kind of a below market deal to come to NE and presumably be the #1 guy. Now Moss is here. Hopefully that is not a recipe for trouble.

    He should be happy...he may have a better shot at being thrown to if MOss is double covered...should be very interesting..

    Stallworth should have a fine season, he's more of a top #2 WR than a legit #1 - having the defense worried about Moss should make things easier on Stallworth.

    Well considering that he is making more money than Moss this year, he should feel pretty happy. Besides Moss will take double teams off him and free him up to ply his craft.

    If he came here to win, then he should be happy. And as others have said, Moss will only make Stallworth's job easier. Stallworth had his best year playing opposite Joe Horn. There are plenty of passes to go around.

    They already asked him and he said he was excited to work across from such a great player.

    He also couldnt wait to meet him.

    I don't understand. How does Moss coming here make him unhappy? Moss is getting less money and is on a one-year deal. Stallworth is making more and stands to make a LOT more if his option is picked up.

    Next year Moss stands to make mega dinero if he succeeds,but regardless I think they've both been humbled at this point in their careers and they both really want a chance to win.They know there are no superstars here and as Corey said,one of the things he loved about playing here was just being able to be one of the team.
    Well see-this season is going to be the most interesting in the Pats' history,or right up there.

    he could get mad cause all those WRs are primadonnas, but if he thinks about it it will be the first season since probably his rookie season he wont be seeing constant double coverage.....I say at least 12 TDs for stallworth

    I actually thought about this situation as well.

    After all, with the receivers we had on the roster, Stallworth saw himself as the clear cut number one.

    I think he will gladly take a great chance at a ring though.

    They will rotate to stay fresh (I feel sorry for the CBs!) or play opposite in multiple WR sets. Stallworth won't mind letting Moss be double teamed.

    Neither can count on huge receiving numbers, though they should work for a high YPC - but they should know that most GMs are savvy enough to recognize the Patriots system isn't one that is going to see them bring in 80 passes either

    And of course, the long bomb - even with Moss and Stallworth - is still a high risk pass. We'll throw it deep just enough to ensure that our mid and short range receivers have ample room.

    That's where most NFL passes are thrown and that's where the presence will have the most signficant benefit

    He fits our offense whereas Randy Moss is likely just another failed WR experiment.

    I think most receivers that have been around understand that other than a great QB tossing to them, there is NO BETTER situation that having another great WR on the other side of the field. Many a million dollars and careers of second rate receivers half been bolstered not by their talent so much as the talent across the field.

    Hell, you don't even have to be look past NE to see that (ala Givens). Givens is a good receiver, but I do not view him as a #1 anywhere. He sure got #1 money though.

    High risk, yeah, but less high risk now. There is NO ONE that adjusts to a poorly thrown "bomb" better than Randy Moss (in his prime anyway).

    Dumb question...

    How much is Stallworth making this year? I thought it was around 2.7 while Randy was making 3.
