    While I don't condone drinking and driving by any means, wasn't the guy he hit walking across an Interstate or something? Even if he hadn't been drinking, he likely would not have been able to stop in time at those speeds.

    Not many players can take the beatings Wes Welker takes in a game.  No way Gonzalez would even stand a chance of playing a complete season considering his fragile body.

    stallworth = wallace! almost... i live in the baltimore area and got to see a few skins games. stallworth can still run and was the best receiver on the skins when he played and was healthy. he's still a very good receiver and belongs in the league. love the deal. no way i would cut ocho right now. i would have him, chad and underwood engage in a robust competition that chad really should win if he has read the playbook. our offense will push everyone. making this offensive team is a great honor. we have weapons at every spot. its all about competition. even tb will be pushed if we can land a tt. btw, its not a given lloyd makes this roster. he should outplay those guys mentioned above. if he can't and those guys all bring it, he should be let go! only wes, herny and gronk get the benefit of the doubt and should be held out of most competitive preseason situations.

    wow this is going to be a great battle at camp! gonzales, welker, ocho, underwood, slater, endelman, branch, lloyd, stallworth... wow! i have a feeling our WR core is going to be greatly improved!

    stallworth played great against us last season, hopefully he will play just as great for us once again!

    Posted by NoahJustin[/QUOTE]

    After the first round, yes (Pats own NO 1st rounder). It actually compounds if they lose more than 1 pick, meaning, by the end of the draft, the last pick may have moved up 3 or 4 slots! Haha

    Will have little impact of the draft in all honesty.

    Before you go off on the signing and BB and BK you might actually read what happened and decide that Donte did more than what most in the same boat would have done. He also could have fought the charge but did not and maned up and took responsibility for what he did.


    Manslaughter charges

    On the morning of March 14, 2009, a 2005 Bentley coupé driven by Stallworth struck and killed a pedestrian at the eastern end of the MacArthur Causeway in Miami Beach, Florida. Stallworth was headed toward the beach when he hit Mario Reyes, 59. Police initially investigated the accident further to see if charges against Stallworth would be warranted.[citation needed]

    Stallworth admitted to drinking the night prior to the accident. He had taken a taxi home from the bar and had gone to sleep. The next morning, he woke up and drove to get some food and had no idea he was still drunk. According to early reports Stallworth was legally drunk at the time of the accident;[13] news sources reported that his blood alcohol content was 0.12, over the nationwide legal limit of 0.08.[14][15] Stallworth claims that he flashed his car's headlights to warn Reyes before striking him.[16] A Miami Beach police report said Reyes was not in a crosswalk on the busy causeway when he was struck by the black 2005 Bentley Continental GT driven by Stallworth. Police estimated Stallworth was driving about 50 mph in a 40 mph zone.[17] The construction crane operator was trying to catch a bus home after finishing his shift around 7:15 a.m.[18]

    Stallworth was charged with DUI and second degree manslaughter on April 1, 2009; he surrendered to police on April 2, 2009, and was released on $200,000 bail.[19] He pled guilty, and received a sentence of 30 days in jail, plus 1,000 hours of community service, 2 years of house arrest, and 8 years probation.[20] He has also received a life-time suspension of his Florida state driver's license.[21]

    On July 10, 2009, Stallworth was released from jail after serving 24 days of a 30-day sentence.

    The Associated Press reported on June 16, 2009, that Stallworth and the Reyes family reached a financial agreement, avoiding a civil lawsuit. The amount of the settlement was not disclosed.[22]

    On August 13, 2009, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell stated that Stallworth would be suspended for the entire 2009 season without pay. Stallworth was reinstated after Super Bowl XLIV.[23]

    A Yahoo! Sports story published August 12, 2010, reported that Stallworth's lawyers indicated he could have fought all charges with "an excellent chance of being found innocent," but that Stallworth chose to be convicted of a felony to do what he felt was morally right. The article later notes that David Cornwell, one of Stallworth's attorneys, felt there was irony in the reaction to Stallworth's decision because the public and media criticized the plea deal without knowing the full story.[24]

    I'm pretty shocked at that to be honest, I don't drive yet so i can't compare but i know plenty of my friends who have driven when they were probably over the limit from the night before. He's obviously not a bad man, more of a wron place wrong time kinda thing. Seems like he has a hard time living with what he did! Did any of you see the tweet he put up today  "This time around, things will be different..." if that doesn't fire you up I don't know what will. Why does september have to be so far away!?

    Where's the harm?He can still run,knows the system isn't going to be asked to carry the wide receiver corps.Competition breeds effort and improved play.So many folks were clamoring for Reggie Wayne and now they are carping about Llord and Stallworth joining the Pats.Strange group here.

    [QUOTE]McDaniels is back!!!!!!!!!!!! Looks like he is putting the band back together from 07', but with a slightly different look. If Stallworth has anything left, combined with Lloyd, Welker, Gronk and Hern, things get really interesting. I like this for nothing else than competition. Lets see what cream rises. The Gallery signing worries me. It could mean Waters retires, or maybe he is just for depth? Connolly is signed, so it would appear unless the pats do something with Mankins or Waters, Gallery is depth.

    I can just see McDaniels, Brady and BB sitting around a table with a list of names, waiting for the chips to fall.  $100 they chose Stallworth simply because he was far cheaper for another system fit than Gaffney.  Same age, Gaffney is probably the better choice, but this is simply cheaper.

    Someone will get a good signing in Gaffney.

    Re: Patriots sign Donte Stallworth

    Brady and the offense were just lacking in outside rec downfield production. ( also I tend to agree with Rusty's non stop argument on our lack of commitment to the run game and Brady's seeming lack of faith in anything but his arm ).

    So, Brady has lost patience with "teaching" new rec how to run routes and McDaniels also does not want to mess around there. Stallworth and loyd both know where to be and when to be there. Neither will be #1 options but crucial ones when we do choose to go there.

    As to the run game, I know we ran often enough and effectivly on paper but it never seemed to be enough to make an opposing defense play honest. We had the talent to do so, the addition of Gallery will only help. Maybe we do something crazy and trade up for T. Rich, ( add Hoyer in a package for Cleveland?). I do have faith in Vareen and Ridley but I think Brady needs a guy back there even he can't disrespect the contribution from. ( maybe in Brady's case it isn't arogance for why thats the case, just honesty in that his arm is a better option than giving BJGE the rock on 3rd and 4 )

    It is not arrogance on Brady's part it is our offensive philosophy to throw the ball early and often. As good as Brady is he is just another player on this team. In 2006 we realized that Brady didn't have very good weapons so we went and got him some and he lit a fire under the leagues pants.

    Now we have placed too much emphasis on the passing game and rely too much on Brady's ability alone. I blame this on the constant raping of our coaching staff. Without a mind like Charlie Weiss or his protege Josh McDaniel's we have suffered to be creative in the play calling.

    We have been a one dimensional offense and it stems from the coaching(or lack thereof).

    Brady is about as good a QB as you will ever see. Rusty for some reason won't see the light on this subject and has been possessed by the idea that Brady has turned into some kind of power hungry general who throws fits when he doesn't get his way. I don't where he gets this stuff but I still like the guy!

    I agree that Brady is about the best. Thats the problem, how do you take the ball out of his hands. We get upset at the play calling sometimes but when we go to the run and get stopped, I must admit i think I get even more upset we didn't throw it.

    This is the problem for the coaches and Brady himself. It takes some serious emotional control to remain balanced and commited when on one side is BJGE and the other is Brady. Who would you trust on 3rd and 4. That's why we need to try and find a closer gap in talent between the QB and running back. HOF vs UDFA. Ii think defensive coordinators will always play against the pass. We need to bring that talent gap closer.
