    I will say this once so everybody can ignore it.

    The team's objective was not for Chad Jackson to have a great season. It was for the Patriots to compete for the Super Bowl.

    The Patriots lost both of their WRs and had a crisis rebuilding situation during the year.

    The team managed to have two reliable receivers in place by the playoffs.

    After working with Gabriel, cutting Gabriel, working with Gaffney, Jabar still had only 11 receptions all season.

    In the playoffs, the two vets had a lot of catches.

    Apparently their strategy to try to develop 1 more veteran to go with the only new receiver to have a training camp just barely worked.

    Do you spend your time developing a rookie who missed camp and practice with a hamstring or a veteran who's reliably produced 40 catches per year?

    The Patriots were 5 points away from a Super Bowl and it wasn't because of offense.

    They did try one long route with Jackson and Brady consistently underthrew him. Maybe Brady's a bust.

    In a normal year, they would have had time to work Jackson in with their veteran receiver corps.

    There was no veteran corps this year.

    Chad will be fine on long routes once Brady catches up with his speed and we have three relatively experienced receivers to start off next year.
