There’s a reason why Gordon overtook his targets...go rewatch (or better yet, don’t ) the Lions game, the last game before Gordon started. Dorsett had zero catches on 5 targets and couldn’t get any separation whatsoever. I understand the need for depth but this is the first signing/decision we’ve done so far that i’m not a big fan of. This is going to be his 5th season and he’s what he is. He’s not going to suddenly become a monster route runner. He was almost non existent in his first year here, but that was attributed to having the need to adjust and learn the playbook and the relative saturation in the catching department, we had Cooks, Hogan, Amendola, James White, Dion and Gronk getting the targets. A full training camp with Brady was the remedy! Last year we lost Cooks, we lost Amendola, Edelman got suspended and Dorsett still couldn’t establish himself at all, there’s a reason why we traded for Gordon, almost a desperation move as it became quite clear that neither Hogan or Dorsett can cut it. Let’s not forget that almost everyone thought that our season was over when Gordon got suspended. And the WR’s were by far the weakest group in the SB. Thank goodness Edelman and Gronk proved why they’re unbelievably good and clutch, because Hogan, Patterson and Dorsett were not the answer to anything. Neither Josh, Bill or Brady trusted him to have a single target in the SB and now after two years he’s going to become a major contributor? I don’t think so. We can blame the system for his targets but let’s remember that he was a former first round pick that the Colts traded after only two years for our third string QB. His contribution there was more or less, what it has been here. As a player that can get a catch per game while covered by the 3rd or 4th CB on that team, he’s alright. Anything more and he’s simply not good enough. Don’t get me wrong, this isn’t an “OMG what is Belichick doing, we’re going to suck!” post. I have the complete confidence that he’s going to put the team in the best possible position to compete. It’s still early March and who knows what’s going to happen with the draft and trades. I simply can’t share the apparent enthusiasm in this thread over this player.
