In response to DanishPastry's comment:
Well, my point was to take it easy. They are rookies playing in their very first regular season game. Let us give them a couple of weeks before final judgement.
I'm not saying bigger and faster turns automatically into success, I'm just stating what has been the critique of the teams receivers, and that they have actually tried to adress that issue.
Was it the right players to get? I don't know, but one way or the other we are going to find out. Of course they are not all going to pan out. But if just one of Dobson, Boyce and Thompkins is the real deal, things will look a great deal better. Add in that Gronk comes back at some point - hopefully soon - and things will settle down. I still have them as one of the most dominant O's in the league.
Supra societatem nemo
Don't forget Suds.
And the problem........4 rookies on O.......2 of them UDFA's.
If ONE pans out, you still got 3 failures and that is very likely.
Every one understands the need for youth and upgrade, but 4 rooks is just a disaster waiting to happen.
I was reading, the last time that happened was 1971 and the team went 5-11.
Thank God for TB, but unfortunately, he can't do it alone.
Amandola and Edelman were great, but what happens when one or both goes down?
I can see replacing two of the last years, #1 offensive starters, mainly Branch and Lloyd, but 4?
