    I agree but if there is a really good defensive player available at 29 I would rather take him and wait 'til the second to pick a wideout.

    What team is this in reference to? The Patriots scored 557 points, most in the NFL. That is 34.8 points per game.

    Dude, we had the 7th best rushing offense last year.  A 1200 yard back in Ridley, Vereen will get much more reps this year and from last year he proves he has electric ability, add to that Bolden has a year under his belt, and sprinkle in Washington and I'd say we are set at RB.

    Now, if you want to say we need another receiver than I 100% agree.  BB will either draft one, sign one after training camp cuts, or trade for one.  Book it.

    Also, I don't think we're in need of 'playmakers' on offense but rather we need more mental toughness and good health come playoff time.

    I believe he's referring to the past couple playoff losses.  He's right in saying the offense has underwhelmed in past playoff losses, but I wouldn't attribute our losses to lack of talent or lack of 'playmakers' but rather we had the misfortune of injury and the team was not as mentally tough as their opponent.  Simple as that.

    I think he's clueless and has no idea what he's talking about, but you're nicer than me...

    Agree.   Moss and 2007 changed how people understand the game of football around here.

     

    It's the same people who keep bringing up "field stretchers" and thinking the D is allowing teams to jump out to huge leads on us, as to why we lose those games.

    BB may be done in FA at WR, but I can't see him not getting one in this draft.

    Would love a trade for Earl Bennett and Quinton Patton in Rd 2.



    I've told you before that I like Bennett.  A lot of upside and is wasting away in Chicago with Nancy Cutler throwing to him.  

    I could see BB bringing in a camp cut guy later in training camp or possibly bringing back Lloyd on a lesser deal.

    Also, a lot of us developed a warped sense of reality after 07 because we were spoiled by those exciting shootouts.  We have seemed to forget that we won 3 Super Bowls without a "deep threat" but rather smart, physical possession-type receivers.  I'm looking forward to seeing what Amendola brings to diversifying this offense, and what other rookies/campcuts BB brings in to make this offense tougher.  I'm excited.

    If only we had a guy like Randy Moss.  We would have won many SBs.  Oh wait...

    Haha that may be the case.  I just did the calculation and the Pats have averaged 15.8 ppg in their last 5 playoff losses dating back to 2007.  That's pretty bad, but like I said, it's more of the opposing defense outplaying us, injuries, and lack of mental toughness; it's not lack of 'playmakers.'

    Either way, the OP should have clarified where he's getting this 14.4 stat.

    That 14.4 points was with the best slot WR in the game, he's in Denver now.  

     

    The Pats need to make some major moves in this draft for the WR position or things will be much worse on offense this upcoming season.



    Or maybe it's a situation where it's addition by subtraction?  Obviously Wes is a phenomenal player and I loved him when he was here, but maybe his existence here contributed to the predictable offense.  We got rid of Moss in 2010 and went 14-2 that year.  Just an example.  People were p*ssing and moaning when we dealt Moss and Brady went on to having one of the best years a QB has hever had.

     I know I'll get bashed for this premise but when you can link it to similar examples from the past, the statement doesn't look that outrageous.
