    Wheatley Returns to Practice

    http://espn.go.com/blog/boston/new-england-patriots/post/_/id/4685011/cb-wheatley-returns-to-practice

    Finally. I'm excited to see what this kid can do. Anyone have any insights as to what he was like in college? What his pro's/con's are?

    Wheatley actually looked better in preseason than any other CB NE has.

    Added depth at CB, which is good.  Thought he played well enough in preseason, not sure he'd be here if Bodden wasn't hurt.  Let's see if he can live up to where he was drafted and stay injury free, which has been near impossible for this guy.

    He did look good in preseason.  I'm not so sure Arrington has looked bad though.  Actually, fairly surprised by him.  He's not playing perfect, but I expected us to suffer.

    Hopefully they can put Wilhite in charge of guarding the water-cooler now.

    Started off very good as a rookie then got hurt (Hand if I remember correctly).

    Year two regressed badly.  Wilhite passed him on depth chart and that's not a good thing.

    This year had a very strong camp and was looking like the real deal, then repeats the injury thing.

    He looked very good coming out of Colorado, starting material, I thought.

    He was fast and quick and appeared to have a nose for the ball.

    However, he was somewhat injury prone even @ Colorado.

    If he can stay on the field, he can battle Arrington and Butler for PT.

    What are you crazy? That's Mankins' job when he comes back. Wilhite, Wilhite can guard the cleats.

    Wheatley is a bigger bust than Maroney.

    This kid will probably be released soon.

    Waste of a 2nd round pick.

    What I like is his communication and instincts in zone coverage.

    The cleats would be too quick for Wilhite, and too diffucult to tackle.

    Wheatley is really fast. Now can we control him by remote control?

    wilhite has been having a pretty good year covering the slot. he's the least of our problems on defense.

    Re: Wheatley Returns to Practice

    wheatley is fast and was always a good cover corner, he just cant stay healthy. last year he lost the confidence of the coaching staff and never played. i suspect he may have had some injury problems too that went unreported. but he had a good preseason and has talent. if he can stay healthy he has potential to be the starter by the last quarter of the seaosn.

    [QUOTE]I thought we released this kid 2 years ago. He's still around? Biggest bust since Chad Jackson. Atleast we didn't move up the draft to get him.

    Why did you stop complaining about Branch's contract?  We are waiting for you to come back with your tail between your legs in that dumb thread that you started....

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: Wheatley Returns to Practice : What? what was dumb about it. I put in the poll that maybe Branch had agreed to negotiate his contract as part of the trade. And that turns out to be the explanation.
    Posted by murghkhor[/QUOTE]

    Pats will pay Branch about $5.5m in 2010 and another $6m in 2011.

    Pats were not willing to pay Brach $6m per year in 2006. Why? Seahawks signed him to 6 years for $39m, $6.5m per year. Instead we endured a year of Caldwell as our top receiver (oh the horror!).

    Basically either $6.5m per year was not too much then or $6m per year is too much now, they can't both be true.

    And we gave Moss $9.5m per year.

    BTW we pay Welker $3.5m per year for reference. Welker signed a 5 year $18.1m contract before we signed him (Welker's 3 yr performance = 2x Pro Bowls, 2x NFL reception leader, 3x Team reception leader, 2x All Pro Selection)

    So what's going on here?

    Looks like someone jumped to conclusiond to me....anymore complaining to do?
