    Receivers.

    From alligator arms, to giving up on deep balls as they look plaintively to the refs, to just plain stumbling around like a child among men...

    This receiver corps of the last year and a half or so have been just about the worst I have ever seen on this team at contesting picks. Just plain dreadful and their ineptitude is an embarrassment. Instead of yelling at them, I'm surprised Brady isn't bludgeoning them with his helmet on the sideline.

     

    Not to mention the astonishing numbers of dropped passes....

    Re: Receivers.

    With Gronk out, we're really down to just three legit receivers: Welker, Lloyd, and Hern--and Hern isn't playing well.  The other three guys--Branch, Hoomanawanui, and Fells--aren't going to give you a lot of receptions.  This is becoming a bit of a concern, I think.

    Re: Receivers.

    We need to spend some money on a legit #1 WR in free agency.  Lloyd is an excellent #2.  

    We played Huston with Stallworth and look at the results.  They had to double him and respect the outside game.  The guy made a freaking circus catch for a TD.  Now we have no threat and our offense can't do much with a bunch of middle of the field receivers.

    Re: Receivers.

    Obviously, the Pats have been highly successful as currently constructed. But I have to admit, after watching Calvin Johnson, AJ Green, Anquan Bolden and Dez Bryant this week, it would be enticing to see the Pats with a receiver with those type of physical gifts (without being a diva/head case, that is).

    Course, you have to be at the top of the draft to get most of those guys, and you have to be willing to commit a lot of money to the receiver position. Those two things work against the Pats' philosophy.

    Re: Receivers.

    If we're just talking about today I would say Brady just wasn't that sharp with his passes, that being said the receivers have all dropped some easy ones all season, that happens...  

    Welker is the best slot receiver in the game, unfortunately he wants to get paid like a #1.  Lloyd makes the impossible catches and seems to drop the easiest ones, he is a near impossible cover on timing routes.  

    We could look at every positional group and say "what if" but while we're thin at WR we still have talent.  Woody is as good as any slot receiver found elsewhere and Hernandez makes a solid outside threat with his size.  We'll never s[end a high pick on a sexy WR, we'll probably never spend that kind of free agent money there either...

    Re: Receivers.

    Can't complain about Welker and LLoyd much. Hernandez is struggling but the Pats have scored over 500 points this year. The Pats offense was mediocre today but I feel the recieving corps when healthy is the best Brady has ever had and the current group is better than the 3 super bowl winners.

    See some of the catches the Seahawks receivers made today as well. Eli Manning is a 2 time superbowl champ over New England because of 2 unbelievable catches made by receivers. Poor Pats Oline play against a fearsome pass rush helped but drops by Brady's receivers and completions of harder catches by Manning's with the game on the line are the difference.

    In response to SUZUKIGSXR's comment:

    Don't worry. Belichick will decide too draft a wide reciever in the 6th round of april's draft, while also passing on more talented options in the early rounds, knowing that his plan will be to bring Branch back again, and maybe even Troy Brown and Stanley Morgan also. Or at the very least, Bill will draft a QB in the 5th round, and convert him to reciever. Fret not. lol




    Didn't he trade up for two great defenders last year? Those guys worked out great. He even found some good late round talent in Dennard. You can't win them all. However, he has struck out every single time when it comes to a stud WR. On tehe flip side he got guys like Gronk and Hern in the middel rounds. Could be A LOT worse!

    Re: Receivers.

    Why do the Pats need another receiver? To avg 40 points per game? This offense has been leading the league all season with one of their two tight ends missing a game for all but 2-3 games. If Welker goes, then we can talk about another receiver. But Welker, Edelman, Lloyd, Gronkowski, Hernandez and Woodhead is as good as it gets.

     

    If the Oline can block, this team will score 40. If the Oline plays like it did in the first half of SF and through much of this game, then it really doesn't matter who the WRs are.

    My issue is that they seem to drop them under pressure with the game on the line or to keep a game icing drive alive. People like David Givens,Branch in his heyday and even David Patten were not the big names that Pats have had but they all performed under pressure and caught crucial passes in playoffs and Superbowls. Ridley and Vereen have regressed badly the last few weeks as well so they don't seem to have the running game that we all thought they had.

    The Pats are more of the dink and dunk type team. The Seahawks like the Ravens like to throw a lot of bombs where interceptions are like punts. The Pats when healthy are great in the red zone with Gronkowski and Hernandez.

    absolutely agrree 2 bigggest needs on teh team are to improve the o line and get a pass rush (ie add another pass rusher, ie in rd 1 of draft jordan/ansah or babin or other proven pass rusher in offseason.

    That is true. Oline really need to step up in the playoffs. If they keep Brady upright and give him time he will win the Pats the Superbowl. Play like they did first half last week and today and it will be a miracle if he survives the post season
