In response to zbellino's comment:
NE needs a WR opposite Lloyd, but really, not an ace. And that is only because of age/vacancy. They have enough talent on offense. There just aren't enough REPS to show off all the talent.
Spend money on defense ... it's where its needed.
It would show results a lot more easily. Another legit pass rusher or two. A dominant End.
If NE adds ANOTHER talented offensive player I'm going to scream. I want thsi draft to be one OL, and a bunch of defensive players.
IT's not enough to break records be #1 every year? Are they shooting for an offense that *actually* scores 40 points every single week? It's not going to happen.
Just get a defense that can reliably play itself into the top five for points, reliably get 3 & outs, etc. IT will make a world of a difference.
Stallworth was fine. We just need one guy who can run downfield across from Lloyd. Doesn't have to be Megatron, but needs to be more than Slater or an aging Branch.
Lloyd has been a good addition, though I wish he got more YAC. While he makes some nice catches on the sidelines (and occasionally in the middle), he doesn't really threaten to do much once the ball is in his hands. I'd like safeties to have to worry about someone breaking a play for 50 or 60 yards periodically. We don't have a receiver who really threatens that.
Offense, though, is fine when healthy, as long as the O line plays well. I haven't really liked the O line the past two games though. Feel they're not getting much push in the running game and are getting beat by pass rushers too often.
