    Thompkins has as many drops as Dobkins. He has more experience than Boyce.  Even if Thompkins doesn't have much YAC - neither did WRs like Lloyd. 5 more regular season games left. Someone needs to gain more experience.  BB can play Thompkins or Boyce - whoever he thinks will be more helpful in the playoffs.

    I simply feel Boyce has so much more upside than Thompkins, at some point BB needs to start working him into the mix. 



    I think Thompkins has better hands then Boyce. He's also made a couple clutch catches. I'd hope they both can be on the field but at this point I'd take Thompkins.

    Thompkins has 7 drops, his hands aere the definition of the term "sus".

    Until Boyce is on the field and KT is not, you kind of look like a loser rooting against him. are you a pats fan or a Boyce fan?  Youve been dogging him all year. He is doing quite well for a undrafted guy who of course had drops like dobson did and still does but you dont dog him? I dont get it man. Let the kid play. He has played a few games without a drop so he is improving

    [/QUOTE]


    Both, Josh is a Patriot after all. But im not ever going to like Kenbrell, especially with a name like Kembrell. He's the Kyle Arrington of the offense to me.

    [/QUOTE]

    So because you don't like his first name you will never like him and he sucks?  Well there's reasoning. This kid has something to play for UDFA with a troubled past. He has his shot right now and he's making the best of it. Where's Boyce been? Riding the pine? Injured?  I guess I'm a Tompkins fan, stone hands and all. Rob Ryan's face in NO says it all for me.  And the fact Brady would throw him the ball on the line says more. When were his drops in the beginning or the season I thing but I've been wrong before. Good thing Boyce never dropped a ball so when he comes off the bench he will be ready. 

    [/QUOTE]


    No, no, no, no, his first name ADDs to the reason why i don't like him, but I don't like him for football related reasons more. Like Brandon Lloyd, this guy just doesn't have the speed to stretch the field to create any real momentum. That makes him a short yardage WR, right, but the clown can't get YAC to save his life.

     

    He makes a catch five yards from the line, falls down, play over. Compared to 4.3 Boyce and 6'3 Dobson with good deep seperation speed, Thompkins has 0 appeal.

    [/QUOTE]

    Thompkins had drops early in the season but he has great hands. He won the NO game what more do you expect from a UDFA? Where has Boyce been.  No where, Boyce as caught 1. Yes 1 ball.  Thompkins has 31 catches.

    I think we all suffer from a Rookie Curiosity Syndrome. Although this is not an official DSM diagnosis, it should be considered such because for some of us our obseession is malignant. LOL!

    All fans, of all teams, in all sports fantasize and hope their rookies will be the answer to problems or elevate the team to greatness. This is especially prevalent with rookie QB's on teams where the starter is having problems. I do not know how to explain this widespread phenomena where we want people to play before the coach thinks they're ready or where we hope they are the answer to all our problems?

    Yes.  People forget that Boyce was a fourth round pick.  Fourth rounders are always a long shot to be major contributors. Most years the draft really thins out by the time you get to the fourth round.

    I agree, but what about thompkins a udfa? Surely a udfa has a harder uphill climb than a 4th rounder.

    I don't know if I'd say any rookie has a harder uphill climb than any other.  I think BB starts them all on the same level playing field. The real issue is that very few fourth rounders have the talent to make that climb all the way to the top.  An even smaller percentage of UDFAs have the required talent.  Still, there are exceptions to every rule, and some fourth rounders will make it just like some UDFAs will.  My point is merely that fans tend to expect too much from fourth rounders.  Realists know that most fourth rounders aren't good enough to ever start in the NFL and will fade away after just two or three seasons.
