    I don't understand why Meyers only got one snap and Dorsett was hurt.:confused:

    Its very likely they were easing him back, knowing they have a bye week to give everyone another 2 weeks of recovery and practice time to build chemistry/timing

    at least i hope so

    The reason they run a read and react offense is to find the soft spots in the defense. It gives the receiver a better chance at the ball and creates less of a chance of an interception because you won’t be throwing into traffic.

    Give the kid a chance here. He is learning the playbook, terminology, speed of the game, and chemistry with the QB etc etc. There are many reason’s we won 6 SB’s. One of them is not Simplifying things. Harry will develop into a nice receiver. Rome wasn’t built in a day

    Sanu was very impressive for the Patriots last night. 10 catches, 80 yards and a TD. That's about what you can expect from him. No he's not a burner but he never has been.

    If you want 'stretch the field' you're just going to have to hope that Harry pans out. I'm just kind of upset that we drafted Joejuan Williams with an early 2nd to ride the bench when we could have drafted many other productive and good receivers instead of him.

    Also we have almost zero production out of the TE position. That's more of a concern for me than a lack of a speedy wideout. In this offense Sanu is very good. But we need a big bodied red zone threat ala Gronk to really take it to that next level and we have nothing even close to that in New England anymore.

    Harry isn't fast either. If we need to stretch the field that's Dorsett.

    Have we not had a big enough sample size to realize that Dorsett does not stretch the field? All I hear about is his speed but I rarely see him with much separation on deep routes.

    Yeah I don’t get the thought process of filling roster with scrubs who give 100% and are useless in game rather than a Pro Bowl level player who is giving 80% but still contributing on gameday. How are we better off? What good is attitude or commitment without the skillset?

    I can see the conversation

    "Wow you guys traded Gordon! He was a major part of your offense. Who did you replace him with on the roster"
    BB "Harry"
    "Great, how was his contribution relative to Gordon?"
    BB "He was a healthy scratch"
    "Errr ok. Who was Gordon replaced by on the active roster?"
    BB "Izzo"
    "Great. Another big bodied receiver, endzone target. How many snaps did he play?"
    BB "zero"
    "Errrr..... who took Gordon's spot and snaps in the offense then?"
    BB "Dorsett"
    "But doesn't Dorsett wilt in WR1 mode against top CBs and only flourishes as option 3 or 4? How many snaps/catches did he get?"
    BB "66 snaps. 2 catches. Barely made a dent"
    "Errrrr ............ you're the boss I guess. I'd have kept Gordon instead of Izzo on the roster".
    BB "Yeah but Izzo isn't late to meetings".

    Yes he'll thrive in a short passing game. He's big, strong, good hands, smart/savvy, good YAC, loves contact, runs his routes. Perfect for us. Smooth, confident, athletic.

    Just don't remind me don't remind me! When you think of who they could have added instead is just sickening.

    Cooper Kupp at #69
    Or
    Failed Panthers DL Kony Ealy at #64

    Got to wonder if the Pats scout assigned to locate diminutive shifty white WRs in past seasons had been redeployed in 2017

    Now that Sanu caught 10 passes and looked great, where are the "We should have traded for E Sanders comments"?

    Sanders is the superior player much Faster than Sanu: Sanders had an injury plus he's much older and is in the last year of his current contract unlike Sanu. I wish we could have had Both our O would be more than set.
