    [QUOTE]CON - Branch doesn't have that big down play homerun ability Moss had.  - Branch is smaller, can't out leap guys for the ball, the way Moss can.  Posted by DuncanOrange[/QUOTE]

    LOL, i didn't see Moss trying to outjump alot of DBs he had height on, it seemed like he expected to just fall in his hands everytime

    That's true.  But that was at least an option with Moss being 6'3, the chances he can get matched up with a 5'10 CB in the red zone.   But the Patriots now have our rookie Tight Ends to try to create matchup problems in the red zone.  


    Overall, Branch is going to be great for this team.   Wes Welker is still Wes Welker, Tate is explosive and will keep improving, Hernandez is a stud even though he dropped balls today, Grakowski is also going to keep improving, and Woodhead looks like a more explosive and younger Kevin Faulk.   This is easily the most talent on offense Branch ever played with, so he should be able to find openings in defense.   If Branch can deliver 5-9 catches a game on weekly basis, our offense is going to score some points.

    The deep threat definitely looked shaky today. Didn't have many opportunities, but  it didn't seem pretty. Hernandez and Branch will have to continue to go deep once in a while....

    Pats don't win this game today with Moss.  Nuff said.

    Let's not forget this was the Ravens defense they were going against.  Your deep passing game can look shaky against a team like that with any receiver on the field, including Moss.

    You forgot to mention that Branch wants to play here and Moss doesn't.

    Obviously but he left out Branch throws real blocks instead of just going through the motions.

    It's a net gain for the Pats mostly due to the locker room factor. 

    It was nice to see Branch doing something on every play he was in. Blocking, running hard every route and so forth. They can do more timing things with Branch. 

    He's solid and it really worked out brining him in. Tate doesn't look quite ready (yet) for the role so we are lucky the deal for Branch fell into place. 

    Moss will be missed in the red zone with his leaping ability, but it looks to me like there is little drop off replacing Branch with Moss.

    I agree that we went up against a top 5 day. Regardless, the one or two deep passes could easily have been intercepted. Of course, I didn't include the last pass of regulation as one of them. In a close game like this, 1 turnover could mean the difference between winning and losing.
