    Price??

    I think it is about time we have to see this kid. He cant hurt...right?? The kid may even help out our other wr since no one has tape on him. I think its time to give him a few plays at least...what do you guys think??

    Re: Price??

    We need some fresh legs for Deion right now.  This was exactly going through my mind as I driving to work today.  He may give our offense the spark it needs. 

    Bottom line is that Tate needs to continue building a rapport with Brady, and he needs to start making plays regularly.  He had a pretty bad drop yesterday that was right on the money.  He made some big plays last week, but that was an easy catch to make and an extremely impornant one for our last chance of coming back.  I wonder if he heard foot steps and got scared.

    Tate was probably so shocked when the ball hit him in the numbers that he dropped it.  One of the few Brady passes yesterday that was accurate.   I still can't believe Hernandez came up with that deflected pass for a TD in the back of the end zone.

    As far as Price is concerned,  I think he would have been out there already if he was indeed ready for primetime.  That being said,  I would like to see him out there also.  WTH,  give him some real game experience.  Can't see where it would hurt.  But then all I've seen of him is what little he played in the pre season and his college highlights.

    Re: Price??

    I agree, why not give the kid a shot.  He is by far the fastest receiver on the team.  Send him on some deep routes, isn't that what Moss did, go deep young man.  Tate was never really that fast, His fastest time before the ACL was 4.5 anyway.  I think price was 4.21. It's worth a try.  Pat fans are tire of seeing a close quarter secondary.  Cheers, drink up!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Tate suck$. BB should have drafted Mike Wallace, who continues to impress.

    If BB won't use Price now, then he should put him on IR or cut him. He's wasting space.

    Let's go with Price.  DBranch is hurting so let's get a look at this guy.  A number 3 draft pick ought to be able to play a bit as a rookie.  Time to see what we have here, BB.

    Man a rooks confidence is built on very thin ice, send him out and he gets hit of the line and gets knocked around he might be mentaly gone for the season.

    I rather he gets going when he is 100% ready even if that means 2011.  I think this kid has all the tools to be a very good receiver.  i rather not sacrifice years on production to try him out.

    He doesn't come from a great college passing attack, he's learning the basics along with the offense.  How to read the D, is it man or zone is the CB blitzing ect he needs to read and react he's not there yet.  If he is not there then all he'll be doing is running up and down the field he and brady are not in sync and what u have a are some INTs.

    Thanks for posting that Pats7393.  There have been a couple of these threads wondering where Price is and I have responded much like you have.  It seems most don't know the football program he came from which hurts him.  He needs a year off the field to be honest.  Maybe throw him a bone now and then but he should be in learning mode this year so he can contribute and be a part of it next year.  To learn the pro style of reading is completely new to him.

    Tate was drafted to be the "OTHER" guy not "THE" guy so I am not surprised he is having some issues being a key target in this offense.

    Either way I feel he was drafted for his ST excellence not his pass receiving skills.

    Also, PRICE will not make the dress list unless he surplants Julian Edleman as Welkers main back up, OR he replaces Slater as the ST ace, Gunner and fifth WR.

    I think Slater gets the nod over PRICE becasue Price has not won ST job... If he could OUT COMPETE, slater and edleman for there duties on ST then he will dress.

    His inactivity has more to do with what he can offer the WHOLE team and less to do with his contributiuons on offense. He is essentially one dementional @ the moment...

    I am more concern with the lack of production from Edleman?

    With Welker being doubled by a safety and a LBer all the time i am surprised they do not rotate Edleman in more often.

    If they take Welker off the field the defense has to play straight up or double hernandez.

    I thought splitting Welker out wide had a moss like effect on our offense only only he does not take the top off like moss did... He does draw a double the FS, or CB take him one on one as one breaks off as he gets deeper.

    This offenses current issue has more to do with there dependancy on the slot receiver and less to do with the performance of Price/Branch.

    Brady's safety valve has been taken away so he needs to make sharper throws to his other tools frequently.

    The good thing is that teams have seen a blue print from the past three games on how to take Welker out of the game..... 

    SO it is just a matter of time before Brady gets comfortable exploiting his other weapons.

    If Deon is hurting that Edelman should get his reps. He can be a game changer with the ball in his hand, but we have been using TE so much that he has been a non factor. Don't rush Price, bring him in only in case of someone lost for a season. No harm in trying Edelman, who we know is battle tested and can be great!

    I don't think the receiving group is the problem, you have the same as 2004 (not comparing on how good they individually are but as a group what they are).

    You have a ton of route runners, guys who finds holes in the D not blow the top off the D.  you have TEs with speed and size who can catch the ball (maybe not against the browns). 

    Here's the difference, 2004 OC one of the best calling plays and adjusting to Ds.  2010 a moron who really doesn't change game play based what looks he's getting.  I truly believe he has his plays listed in order and doesn't even look at the field of play just goes down the list.  I know that sounds idiotic but damn this dude is pissing me off.  I'm not a football genius but when I can guess what O is been set up by personal package I'm sure Ds are way ahead of me.

    Receivers we have will work if they get more creative finding miss matches by multiple sets and motions ect.

    thanks gary, I don't think people understand what college really does to prepare a kid for the pros.  there are exceptions based on pure talent but for the most part kids who come from programs in the SEC, Pac10 ect do better because they #1 face better competition and #2 they run pro style Os and pro style assignments.  They learn one of the most important thing as a player, READ the opposition whether a O player figuring out the D or the D figuring out the O.

    That's such a big part of the game, a single play in the NFL has a ton of variations based on the defensive lineup.  If it is man with safety over top this route if zone this route if no safety this route, if CB blitz do this ect.  Take that times IDK how many plays and a kid that's not used to that can be overwhelmed oh and on top of that, catch the ball going full speed while a 240lb man is trying to take your head off. 

    He will not be playing in instinct but trying to remember the play book which is not good.  Let the kid sit and learn, forget he was drafted for this season.

    If Price was ready, he'd already be on the field. 


    This wish is sort of like wanting Michael Bishop to be your Q.B, because you think Drew Bledsoe is old and you never heard of Tom Brady.  Yes, it was like that once. 


    For fans, there is always some other guy who needs a look who might be the difference maker.  Most of the time that payer is not going to be the difference, he will only become Monday morning's material for negative forum posts

    I don't think Price is ready otherwise we might have seen him used. Obviously not being activated means he is not ready, or like tagntrade said, "can't contribute multi-dimesionally", which means he warms the bench.

    The problem we have now is 4 fold or possibly more;
    1. Teams double Welker, making him not as effective as we need;
    2. Forces us to look for other guys like Branch who is injured, and Hernandez how although good, is still a rookie...
    3. Tate is not a #1 or #2 WR. I really think this guy is a nice #3, or #4 at this stage in his progression, and with Branch hurt and teams doubling Wes, we all here are thinking he will be the go to guy with Hernandez...just isn't happening..
    4. Run game is at times good, and others non-existent, putting more pressure on the passing offense. 

    Throw in issues with OC predicatability in playcalling and we are not a dynamic offense by any stretch of the imagination. We don't currently possess a WR that strikes fear in any opposing defense or commands double teams unless you consider Wes, but he is a slot guy, and the doubles on him look different than say the doubles on a guy like Moss that can stretch the field. 

    I think the task is on O'Brien to figure out how to maximize the skill set we have (smaller, quicker WR's) against the defenses we face. I have a hard time believing a team could stop us if we spread it out with Wes, Edelman/Tate, Branch, Hernandez, and Woodhead coming out of the backfield or actually lined up as another slot WR...

    well, i had a slightly interesting find - watching "patriots all access" there was a segment on the receivers coach and they showed him instructing price- the coach told price that he was having his best practices so far- so perhaps it is within the realm of possibilty that he sees the field at some point this year- that's the only reason for hope ive seen

    that is what i wrote...put him in for a few plays...he will get pro style exp and you never know he might blow up and become a mike williams(tampa). im sayin it cant hurt to send him out there for a few not start him. to draft him in the 3rd round means they think highly of him. ohio does not run the prostyle passing o of the nfl...WE ALL KNOW THIS. He was drafted in the 3rd round and the season is half over with...put him in for a few. next year he will be a rookie all over again with no game time exp...

    If he doesn't know how to run the plays right he is going to cause turnovers. If he can't play yet, he can't play yet.

    if what your sayin is true then why the hell did we draft him in the 3rd round when he would of been undrafted...the kid is not dumb! 5 plays a game...maybe not even throw him the ball...maybe he will figure it out running routes in nfl gametime speed. IM NOT SAYIN PUT HIM OUT THERE JUST TO RUN ROUTES. If the kid is open Brady will get him the ball and if hes not he will at least get some exp. i just dont think it will hurt. i want to see what our 3rd round pick can do(little at a time).

    Re: Price??

     We're not asking Taylor Price to perform brain surgery. It's football! Granted it is at a high level, but it still is football. This kid has been playing organized football for most of his life, and probably played receiver for 10 yrs. He knew he would be drafted this year and was working with a receivers coach before the draft. He has been working for the last 10 months learning how to properly run routes. It's time to take the training wheels off and get a glimpse of what this kids got. He is very fast, I think many people expected him to run in the high 4.2's or low 4.3's at the combine. He ran a 4.41 which I think he would consider a little disappointing. But he is definitely the fastest receiver on the team, and he may turn out to be a deep threat.
