    I can't believe I have to make a post about this because at the beginning of this year, back in September we had some guys who could play WR and get open but they were undisciplined. AB sent the texts, Josh Gordon violated his agreement with the team and they had to get rid of him and we may have drafted the wrong guy when they picked Harry over Metcalf because look at what Metcalf is doing compared to Harry. Granted Harry was hurt for the first half of the season but he did not put up the production that we saw from DK. By the time the Titans game rolls around, we have a WR situation that is actually worse than it was in 2013 but it wasnt a lack of trying. Sanu was an absolute failure and I think they should have gone for Emmanuel Sanders who can still run and all we were stuck with was an injured Edelman who kept getting doubled on every snap. We could go for AJ Green but im not sure if BB would be willing to shell out that kind of money for him because he will have a high price tag. We could look to the draft again, there is a ton of talent like LSU's Justin Jefferson, Clemson's Tee Higgins, Alabama's Jerry Jeudy and Henry Ruggs. BB doesn't normally go for big names in the draft but I think he will have to if Brady is going to come back at this stage of his career. The man can still play but he is going to be 43, he cant put the team on his back like he has in the past. BB will have to make a move in order for him to come back or else he will choose a team with more talent on offense.

    I’d like to see us trade for OBJ and just end this WR crap.

    That wouldn't end anything. We would have 1 of 3 starting spots filled long term.

    The WR situation became a dumpster fire, largely of the team's own making. That's obvious to anyone who's not being willfully blind.

    It doesn’t have to be a big name. Just someone that can beat man coverage or whateva coverage. Harry and sanu failed against man coverage that’s why they didn’t beat the titans. Jules was doubled.

    Harry and Meyers are young and deserve more time.
    Dorsett is a nice guy but just doesn't seem to get it.
    Sanu is not that young but may have been hurt.

    Harry and Meyers will get more time, but based on this years performance they should be starting 4-5 on the WR depth chart. The Dorsett time with the Pats should be over. Unless Sanu has surgery for a high ankle sprain or something like that, whatever injuries he had should not have prevented him from getting at least some separation and it really seems like he never could.

    I warned everyone around game 5 that the Pat's had WR problems and I was attacked by the usual people who were upset. Patifa. I knew that they would come at me, but I had to speak the truth.

    I was right about getting rid of Gordon. I was right about Dorsett.

    Time to move on from Dorsett. Let Harry and Meyers develop another year. Restructure Sanu and hope he improves. Get a new FA X receiver to replace Dorsett and credibly take the top of the field. Draft a new WR as well. Also ok with letting Sanu go.

    Get a new FA TE to replace Watson. Anyone that can block well and give us 30 catches a year and 500 yards, nothing crazy. Draft a move TE to help receiving game and make 2 TE sets credible. Keep one of LaCosse or Izzo.

    Re-sign the top 20 all-time WR who wants to be here, Antonio Brown.

    Trade Sanu + 7th to the Bucs for OJ Howard.

    Sign Amendola.

    WR depth chart: Brown, Edelman, Harry, Amendola, Meyers.

    Beckham also wants to play with Brady quite badly, although he'd cost too much to acquire.

    Why are we keeping Meyers? Why are we putting Harry at WR3? What did either of them do to merit such status, at this point?


    Meyers is, at best, a camp competitor for the second straight year. Harry should be put in a position where he's fighting for reps, not slotted in at a top 3 position.


    WR1/WR2
    Edelman
    WR3 (Sanu, if there's some excuse for that horrible stretch he had in N.E. last year, someone else if there's not)
    WR4 Harry (He can fight for more playing time from here)
    WR5

    In other words, this team's WR position is basically back to where it was after last year's draft.

    I was expecting more from Harry, he didn't crack 100 yards in any of his games. I don't know if he can be a true number 1 receiver.

    Think Meyers is that bad? He showed some potential. I think he looked like a decent fourth or five receiver, problem was we needed him to play well right now as a rookie.
