    I Suspect The Offense Would NOT be Better With A Better Passing QB

    I don't think that the issue is Newton. Against Seattle, he showed that he could pass; as he did yesterday. We have always wanted a great downfield threat. That isn't the key now either. The issue is that an Offense, especially our offense needs slot receivers and TE's. We don't even make...

    Anyone got a Ryan Izzo film review?

    It seems to me that every time I've seen him targeted, he makes a very clean catch regardless of if it's a perfect pass or if he has to stretch a bit. Has Lazar or anyone at all done any film review on him? Not saying we have a star on our hands but perhaps a TE who brings more to the table than...

    Week 9: We Are On To The Jets

    Too soon? More venting needed first? Early odds have the Patriots favored by either 7 or 7½, depending on where you shop. https://www.espn.com/blog/new-york-jets/post/_/id/84756/jets-pursuit-of-0-16-and-top-pick-could-be-ruined-by-bill-belichick The New York Jets are halfway there. They are...

    What a complete disaster

    Is it Cam’s fault or the WRs and TEs?

    I see everyone blaming Cam for his disastrous passing numbers through 7 weeks....however shouldn’t the blame be placed on the WRs and TES? We know cam has talent. The current WRs are the worst in the nfl, and maybe worst in franchise history. The tight ends are equally as bad. The rookies we...

    Belichick: "We need more production offensively, period"

    https://nesn.com/2020/10/this-bill-belichick-quote-underscores-one-of-patriots-biggest-problems He also called out the TE position in particular. If he's saying this in public... then I'd like to think the trade wheels are already in motion. Looking forward to seeing what happens.

    Article: The Patriots' Tight End Problem is Becoming Critical

    https://patriotswire.usatoday.com/2020/10/18/the-patriots-tight-end-problem-is-becoming-critical-after-loss-to-broncos/ "With the New England Patriots’ 18-12 loss to the Denver Broncos on Sunday, one thing was made clear — the Patriots need to have more production at the tight end position.

    Would you trade Thuney to improve WR/TE?

    Through a quarter of the season the Pats appear to have a rare commodity in the NFL with 6 starting quality OL: LT Isaiah Wynn LG Joe Thuney C David Andrews RG Shaq Mason RT Jermaine Eluemunor G/T Michael Onwenu They have played a big part in the team's 2nd ranked rushing offense. They are...

    What is going on at the TE position?

    I don't understand it, do we just have horrible Tight Ends or is there a plan I can't see? Asiasi? Keene? Are they just too inexperienced or are they not good enough at this level? I was hoping to see something from a TE by now, any TE. I think they collectively just have one catch in four...

    Wouldn't mind a trade for Jack Doyle

    Maybe I'm alone in this but I've always loved Doyle's attitude, and he's one of those "pretty good at everything" TEs who's not a super star but great to have and easy to build around. He'd be an instant upgrade over Izzo and a great mentor type to take our two rookie TEs under his wing. He's...

    35 million in cap space, are there NO quality WRs or TEs available?

    Cam is being set up to fail without credible WR and TE threats. It will be easy for defenses to stack the box and give minimal attention to passing games. No double teams on WRS. I understand that until outputs, BB thought he had no cap to work with. But now there is 35 million available...

    The Biggest Question Mark On This Board

    Folks have us having between 1 and 3 TE's on the 53. Some would just use a blocking TE for the first four games. Belichick has a plan. Personally, I don't think that his plan is to give up on the TE position as part of the offense because Gronk retired. TE play has always been important to...

    Little OT: Why does Ben Coates never get any HOF consideration?

    Is it purely just that he lacked a lengthy career? That’s what I’ve always assumed. Couldn’t be for his production he had during his prime, though. Made the all decade team in the 90’s, second on the team only to Shannon Sharpe. But you could argue for a good 3-5 year stretch in the mid 90’s...

    Replacing The Critical Production of TE's in 2018

    There is no question regarding the critical contributions of Gronk in the playoffs and the Super Bowl. And sure, as always, others will need to step up in the playoffs and Super Bowl. However, I think that we are going overboard with the gnashing of teeth with regard to the regular season. Do...

    LaCosse Injury

    Any updates on LaCosse's injury? He looked solid in his limited action so I was concerned when he went down. If we can find two serviceable TEs between himself and Watson, this offense will be more than fine given the athleticism at WR and depth at RB.
