    Tory Holt is NOT Joey Galloway

    Tory Holt is not the answer, but its not signing another 38 year old joey galloway.
    Holt is 33 and although he did not put up any TD's last year I think he still has gas left in the tank...

    Galloway showed significant drop off in stats the year before we signed him...He went from 6 TD's and 1000 yards to 163 yards alone in 2008, then we signed him for 09.  Tory Holt has obviously aged but still put up 800 yds in a weak passing offense in Jacksonville. 

    He's not the answer and we still need some impact players on O, but he will help the situation, instead of worsen it like galloway did

    Holt is the exact opposite of Galloway.  While Galloway got by on pure athletic ability, Holt is a future Hall of Famer because he combined just solid athletic ability with incredibly savvy and intelligence on how to get open and be a reliable target for his quarterback.  Brady is going to love Holt.

    We couldn't draft a guy that will be as productive as Tory Holt this year. This is nice because it opens us up a little to focus on more pressing needs in the draft. I wonder if this means they aren't going to be drafting Dez Bryant?

    To Go with Crumpler, Edelman and Welker when he comes back...Please let's get our O-Line bolstered and get a good running back in the draft. I want to get back to sick-Level on offense.

    Re: Tory Holt is NOT Joey Galloway

    Holt is more the route runner type, while Galloway was more of the deep sideline threat type. Torry has played with the "Greatest show on Turf", which means he plays smart and has good timing. Galloway lived off his speed. And when Galloway was in Tampa, they weren't really known for their offense! If he and Brady get on the same page it will ease the loss of Welker a lot. Edelman seems to be doing well, but with Holt it will help Tom (and the O-line) immensely. And being an uncapped year they can take some fliers and see who sticks through the summer.

    well if dez drops outta the top 12 passing the broncos and jags, i wouldn't be suprised to seee the pats move up to snag him and then still grab a solid de/olb in the kindle form because graham and the others would be gone...I'd prefer to address this pash rush first and foremost however

    Great pickup.  Good hands.  Great route runner.  Better than TO.  Younger than Galloway.  Should be a good pickup.  It give the Patriots insurance.  Walker may not be ready in September and the young guys need time to learn

    Re: Tory Holt is NOT Joey Galloway

    bubthegrub has it right. Galloway was just a let me run down the line WR, these types never seem to work out to well for Brady in the past (with Moss and Stalworth being the exceptions) but Holt is a route runner. There is a long list of route runners that excelled under Brady regardless of where they came from or went to.

    they werent going to draft bryant anyway... they were goin for demyrius thomas.... they brought in bryant as a smoke screen,

    and This doesnt solve anything? This does not take pressure off moss and edelman can do just as much in the slot as holt.

    I do like holt but Holt is a slot reciever not a WR2 guy which we need, so it did not relieve any pressure off the draft but more just helped A LITTLE in wide reciever.. but not much because HES A WR3, WR4... which we have plenty of.

    But besides that I dont mind the pick up but dont look for him to be the answer or problem solved because its not even close, Still need WR2.

    If we draft Thomas, then we solidify our WR corps and its lights out... because Thomas, Moss, tate, holt, welker, edelman, will be hard to contain... we wil just have to hope BJG, morris, faulk and taylor stay healthy when we trade away maroney

    I think it puts a solid WR corps out for 2010.  Moss, Holt, Edelman, with a #4 being filled by Tate/Stanback/Aiken.  When Welker gets back he can take the slot again.  It relieves the need for one of the 2nd year guys, or rookies to become starters right away.  That allows BB to draft a #1 WR who can develop for a year and take over for Moss instead of looking at an immediate need at #2.

    Re: Tory Holt is NOT Joey Galloway

    IMO, its a nice pickup, better than galloway...but the guy isnt very fast anymore and will not be out-running anyone to the end zone

    but it is a nice pick up in case younger players dont develop or there are injuries in the WR corps

    I agree with 1 thing that you said, but for different reasons.....Holt is no Galloway.  Galloway could not grasp the Pats offense...Galloway did not have less production the year before because of age....he was injured and then when he came back, someone else was there.  So Galloway didn't play much after.....

    Holt is a smart route runner, he doesn't have the blazing speed he once had, but he is a better version of Gaff-me.

    Also, Holt is the same age as Moss.....and I am hearing some of the same things about Holt that I did about Moss when he first came here.  I think that Holt has something to prove and this Offense is shaping up pretty well.

    People are saying that Holt is old and slowing down......pretty much what many were saying about Moss...

    well there is a tremendous difference between the two players

    randy has always had an edge about him and that has gotten him into trouble...his trouble was during the prime of his career and is what, (and a big bottle of scotch to al davis) got him traded for a 4th or 5th round pick(cant remember off the top of my head)

    holt has always been very steady and consistent...but he has undoubtedly slowed down...still a fine football player and a good leader...but the issues between the two players are completely different leading up to this point

    They have similarities....their down stats were when they were on bad teams with bad QB's.....

    I still don't know how you and these pundits can say that he lost a step......like Moss had lost a step....

    I'm not upset about this pickup. But now they need to let Aiken go for sure

    who cares if holt has slowed down.he is a very good receiver when there is a great QB at the other end.he will be a great possesion receiver like harrison was with wayne,and boldin was with fitzgerald.
