    Re: Pats better get on the waiver wire for some WR's

    In response to FrnkBnhm's comment:

    Looking a little deeper at the stats, the top three receivers (Amendola, Edelman, Vereen) were target 33 times and had 24 catches for 241 yards and 2 TDs. The rest of the WR, TE and RBs were targeted 19 times and came up with 5 catches for 47 yards. 

    If Gronk comes back fullstrengh eventually, I think that Gronk, Amendola, Edelman, Vereen and Ridley (assuming he holds on the ball and gets his job back) are more than enough weapons for a top NFL offense.




    I'll buy that for a dollar.  I also think that Midway through the season 1 of the 3 rookie WR's will have stepped up and gelled with Brady enough to throw his hat in with the above mentioned.  Not sure on Ridley though, I think Blount will see more short yardage stuff and Vereen will see his carry numbers go up.  BB is notorious for leaving people in the dog house for a long long time if he can't trust them to hold onto the ball.

    Thompkins has chad johnsons routes.  kind of hard to catch on sideline all game.  but he made some mistakes.  he will bounce back.  i think they need to change his routes up. 




    I agree, but I think there is a reason he is outside so much running those type of routes...he's not big and strong enough to fight for a ball and perhaps take a big inside hit. I think this guy needs a year in the off season conditioning program to add a little muscle. I still think he is going to help this year - and today he would of if he had just got that foot in, had that pass interference call called and came back for the ball in the endzone...those are correctable...and I think he will.

    I wonder if KT received coaching & training this summer that reflected what he would experience in the NFL?  If so, maybe he can't absorb coaching/training?  Maybe that's part of the reason he was undrafted?
