    What a dumb post this is.  Most rookie receivers have trouble in their rookie year.  It is one of the hardest positions to adjust to from college to pro.  Taylor Price played in an option run first offense and now has to adjust to a pro offense that is difficult to learn.  Give the kid a break!!

    Sticking to the topic and refraining from the personal (not always easy), this thread is just plain silly.  4 games into the season? Guy comes from a very basic offensive scheme and missed most of what the other rookies got through no fault of his own.  Raw talent is exactly that - raw talent.  And by every measure this kid has got exactly that.

    The Branch trade has exactly zilch to do with Price.  A veteran wideout who has enjoyed success in this system with this quarterback was available and BB made the trade.

    For crying out loud give the kid a chance, will you please?

    Price is a young man with considerable physical skills,intelligence,a sound work ethic the instincts to be a nvaluable wide out.What he doesn't have is a collegiate background that prepared him to play in the NFL.Ohio University is a fine school with an excellent Sports Management program but its offensive system is,in many ways,the antithesis of how the game is played at the pro level.This is a difficult and time consuming problem for the young man.Last year there were more than a few posters who were prepared to label Chung a bust in his rookie season and he played in a sytem that was much closer to NFL teams than Price did.Please,give Price at least a year to learn and acclimate to the league and the Patriots system,you could well be pleasantly surprised and not look like your decision about him was significantly premature.

    Miles Austin showed almost nothing his first 2 years until his third year where he burst out mid season.

    way too early to say anything about Price

    Forget that Branch might have been the best WR (as far as offensive execution within their scheme) that Brady has had in NE.  He clearly isn't someone that BB wants mentoring Price......

         I tend to agree with you, Captain, based on what I've seen of him...and the fact that no other team picked him up when he didn't make the team...allowing the Pats to place him on the practice squad.

    Thanks CapFox,

    Perhaps you can make that judgement. I can only say this: I haven't seen enough of the kid to judge him one way or the other. 

    I know that he came from a bare-bones system, but had tremendous ability.

    I know that he obviously hasn't adjusted well enough to make the team as a WR yet.

    But I also know that it wasn't expected at this point.

    I couldn't say I know anything more than that, and that isn't enough for me man. Like I said, if he is still on the practice squad four games deep into next season, I too, will begin to suspect it is a case of arrested development.

    He was never cut, he made the 53 man roster but has been inactive.

         I stand corrected. I had thought that a player must be released and passed over by other teams before he could be added to the practice squad. But, apparently, I was mistaken:


         "Each NFL team may keep up to eight members on its "practice squad" in addition to the 53-member main roster. They consist mostly of rookies who were cut in training camps and borderline NFL-caliber players. Both rookies and young veterans are eligible for the practice squad. However, a player cannot participate on the practice squad for more than three seasons, or if he has accrued a year of NFL experience (six or more games on a club's 53-man active roster or official Injured Reserve list.) If the player was on the active list for fewer than 9 games during their "only Accrued Season(s)", he maintains his eligibility for the practice squad.[1]"

    Re: BRANCH TRADE = TAYLOR PRICE MISTAKE

    I will take another tact.  When Price played in preseason, to me he showed that he belongs in the NFL physically.  But his route running, foot placement on sideline catches and overall reaction to the ball (timing patterns) need to improve, and these are all coachable.  I am no pro scout, so yis can all tell me to pound sand.  But I hate that negative posts get so much traction when some posters know sweet fkuc all about player development, or at least as much about player development as the rest of us keyboard GMs. 

    Can we stop with calling people busts four games into a season?  It's like some of you fellas want to be ahead of the "Price scuks" curve so you can say told ya so if he doesn't pan out and reaffirm your football smarts.  Sheesh...

    Good point MVP,

    I mistakenly said practice squad, when what I meant was inactive. If he were on the practice squad right now, it would mean that they weren't worried about another team taking him.

    I'll rephrase it and say that if he isn't seeing some action next season, then it will be time to start worrying. If he isn't at least a #3 on the depth chart the season after that, then you know it isn't gonna work.

    Why even pay attention to a post like this?  It takes time to sift through the garbage these days and get into a a credible discussion, but anybody insinuating a player like Price is a mistake because he hasn't seen the field does not deserve the time of day. IMO of course....

    TexasPat3, the practice squad should not be confused with the 8 players from the 53-man roster that a team must make inactive for each game.

    There is a 53 man roster, 45 of whom may be active on game day.  And then there is an 8 man practice squad that practices with the team.   The practice squad players are not the same 8 who are game day inactives.

    Price was never on the practice squad - he has always been on the 53 man roster but inactive for the first 4 games.

    Good discussion of the practice squad here. 

    http://www.ehow.com/facts_4793705_nfl-practice-squad-rules.html

    And Price has always been on the 53-man roster.  He's just consistently been one of the 8 game day inactives.  The 8 game day inactives should not be confused with the 8-man practice squad; they are not the same players.

    LoL Blow this post up, and Capfox too... ridiculous.  A rookie WR who came from the worst pass offense in the country.  He just might need sometime to learn the postion.  BB says QB and WR are the hardest postions to learn from college to Pro's... I might lean towards that as a possibility for his lack of playing time.

    not many 3rd rounders start in the NFL.  He will be ok after he has time to learn the system.  A few years back, a rookie never even got to play in their first year.  Price is fast, and will be ok in a year.

    I have seen some really silly things on here but this is just top 5 for me.

    The dude is a rookie and had the strongest training camp out of all the WRs but he is a raw WR who cant run the routes this team needs right now.

    When he comes through next year and in his third year you likely not remember that post at all and have a Price sig.
