    I've been calling for this since pre-season. Obrien now sees it? H*ck, I could coach the PATS for less than Obrien makes. :)

    I prefer Ocho in his decoy role drawing double teams.

    Seeing as he has zero catches for zero yards, it would be hard to have him less involved in the offense.

    Re: O'Brien wants more Price in offense

    I think BBs meritocracy may have a flaw in that it doesn't allow younger players to come in. Potential has to play a role to some degree, it is nearly impossible for a rookie to look better than a mediocre veteran in their first year or two as they learn the system. At some point you have to let the more talented young guys get the reps to become the better players. Price may not be better than Branch or Ocho now, but if he doesn't start playing with the first team in games and practices he never will be. Of course some guys just don't have it. Rookies almost never see time in the BB system unless there is an injury. I sometimes wonder if they are given a fair chance in practice to beat out a veteran for their position.

    AP Photo/Winslow TownsonCould Taylor Price see an increased role moving forward?
    Patriots offensive coordinator Bill O'Brien said Tuesday that he'd like to get wide receiver Taylor Price more snaps in the offense moving forward.

    "He's practiced well," said O'Brien. "We need to get him in there more. He's done a good job in practice and he's a guy we gotta give some more reps to in the game."

    Pressed on how that might happen, O'Brien noted, "We're figuring all of that out right now. You'll see that on Sunday."

    Good to hear that the kid might get his shot soon. Ocho has been ineffective, Price is younger and has tons of upside, let's see what he can do!

    Re: O'Brien wants more Price in offense

    Vs the Steelers, Price came in for Branch (I think he lost his shoe) and runs a deep route.  Price beats his mand and is completely open.  Brady is under pressure and underthows Price, incomplete.  We don't hear from Price again for the rest of the day.  Just 1 target for the day.  Why?

    Teams are putting DBs up in the box to shut down NE's short passing scheme.  They do not respect NE's ability to go deep.  The Pats need to find a way to stretch the defense and hit on some deep routes to keep their opponents honest and make them pay. 

    Enter Taylor Price, New England's only real deep threat.  It's about time, Mr Obrien.

    I saw this too, I was disappointed in Tom for missing such a wide open throw.

    Its nice to know Obrien has a pulse. I wish he would say he wanted to use his RB's as well. I'm all for giving Price a shot but Dieon Branch was our best receiver last Sunday.

    On a side note if we didn't use Chad in a pass heavy offense against a team that he has played twice a year for a decade then what are we keeping him around for?

    It was a shame to see Brady miss Price when he was so wide open on that play.  That could have been a game changing touchdown play.  Nevertheless, encouraging that Price absolutely torched the defender deep.

    Ocho is 6'1" 190 lbs

    Price is 6' 200 lbs

    I see them as being the same type of sideline/outside the #'s threat, with Price maybe a bit harder to handle for DB's at this point in their careers.

    Before the season you assumed Ocho would still have the skills to make teams double cover him or worry about his ability to go deep therefore being a good decoy for Branch/Welker and the TE's while still getting 3-4 catches a game and a TD maybe every 2-3 games.

    Obviously that has not happened. If you give him more time maybe he will become comfortable enough to get 2-3 catches and so on....

    But Price is likely ready now and I would at leats give him 20 snaps, 6-7 targets and 2-3 long ball shots next week and see what he can do. You have to throw some deep balls to keep the D honest anyhow so you might as well use this kid since Chad has looked slow and lost

    Re: O'Brien wants more Price in offense

    You draft a guy in the third round last year - you have him do nothing for almost two years - now you decide you just may need him? Who the hell runs this team nowadays? Pete Freaken Carroll?! We need a deep threat, everyone knows this. Apparently his name is Price and he's on our roster, why the hell have they waited this long to decide they need to get him involved. Don't they develop players anymore? What have they been doing with this guy for two years? Supposedly he's looked just great in practice - so you don't put him in a game because Ocho Cinco is lighting the world on fire? Did it take Edelman touching a woman in her bathing suit area in a night club for them to give this guy a chance?

    I read this. And as the OC, he's the one that can make it happen. Just put him on the field. What's taken so long.

    So, you think Bill Belichick is worried about being embarrassed? You think he wouldn't drop any player in mid season because he is worried about how it looks?  You mean how he just dropped Bodden mid season after rewarding his good play after 09?

    You and I have been watching a different coach for the past decade.

    We haven't put Price in the game because the receiving core and Tom Brady has been top 3 in the league all year. that is not the problem. The problem is that we ignore what a defense is doing and throw into a crowded secondary anyway.

    We have 5 Rb's who have all looked like they have skill, and an offensive line built to maul. Throwing 35 times and having Kevin Faulk lead your rushing attack with 6 carries is a problem. Nothing else.
