This whole situation is why I was rabidly against letting both cooks and amendola go
Gronk too. It just became a lot harder for opposing defenses to scheme their entire red zone defense around stopping him, and then just living with the result of that whatever it may be.
Other routes he ran vs Pitt he showed good/very good separation. There was one where he juked a CB. Steelers Cbs sucks so not sure if its a good example.
Everything else you say I agree with 100%.
With the state of things at WR I do think he'll relapse but its worth the conditional 5th rounder.
What's interesting to me is that, because of circumstances (injury, suspension, trade, cut pickup), this team is potentially going to be going from "Christ, who the hell is going to catch the ball?" to "There's no way they can hang on to all those receivers, even if they moved Patterson more to a STer with benefits kind of role."
Coleman (more for potential than for immediate production)
I'm sure you did. I came off a bit snarky in my reply and I apologize for that. It's all good...
this deal gets better, Browns had same bye week as Patriots, I already planned for this to not affect my fantasy team.
So long Corey, we hardly knew ya.
Thanks to the Brownies for the talent pipeline.
Keeps the Kenny Britt / Jordan Matthews patsfan.com binkies in play too.
I called it! I knew he was coming here all along
I love this. He is a beast. If he can't realize that weed is nice and all, but having a Mulit-million dolar salary is MUCH better, we cut him easily.
I think there is some chance he plays this week, but it's not much... I hope he gets ready to play in week 4, before Edelman arrives, just so I can see how he plays as a true #1 Receiver
They are gone not because the team didn't want them. They priced themselves out of staying here and other priorities won.
Pats cut Coleman for Gordon. Imagine if we had the above and Dez instead of Britt. 2 great wide outs (Gordon, Dez), 2 great slot/intermediate receivers (Edelman, Hogan), Gronk and our committee of RBs (Burkhead, White, Michel)
And when Gordon hits his next contract wouldn’t be as huge as it would be
Interesting take. I seriously disagree, but you do make your point well.
The fact that this has the entire league having Randy Moss flashbacks is easily worth a 5th rounder.
[watches guy elevate over a corner who was beaten so bad he had to faceguard on an underthrow, pluck the ball, and contort to land in-bounds with the ball secured on a last ditch play]
Eh I don't think this guy is there physically
I think the upside for the Pats is more than with other teams.
It’s the domino effect.
Hogan is their #1 and is suffering from getting tough matchups. He doesn’t have the raw talent to excel there.
Dorsett is their #2 and is doing okay but would greatly benefit from getting one more downgrade in the corner matched up on him. He could really exploit the worst coverage guy on the other team but right now he won’t get overlooked.
Patterson should be a guy who is a threat as their fourth/fifth option but it’s so obvious right now when he’s going to get the ball. He should get a few touches a game with more spacing and would be more efficient.
Gronkowski suffers from all of the above since he’s going to be the entire focus of the defensive game plan, as no one else is really going to cause major damage.
I’m not convinced Edelman is the Edelman of old, or that having him back will give the same domino effect as having a true dynamic, explosive deep play threat.
So while I’m skeptical he will work out, the upside of Gordon assuming a big playmaker role would really cause the offense to improve in many ways.
The more the merrier. Gordon, Britt and Matthews are pretty iffy.
Good trade even though I'm skeptical that he can stay on the field.
Lol just stop. Now you’re reading the flyers to me
I know. That's part of the point.
No, thanks. Dez has never really made sense for the Patriots, and this trade removes desperation from the equation.
Slow your roll turbo
I don’t care that he smokes weed. I think it’s funny that’s called a disease.
