[QUOTE]WR is not major area of need. Branch, tate, price, welker, edleman, woody, hernandez, gronk, crump...plenty of weapons. The Jets drop 8 into coverage and double everyone...brady should have 10 years back there to throw or run...with 2 blockers per rusher. OL fell down on that one.

With all due respect bro if Tate and Price qualify as "weapons" then I would say every single skill position player on every single NFL roster should be considered a "weapon". I have on a few occasions heard Price's name dropped in this forum as some kinda prospect with great potential, did I miss something this season? We didnt see enough to really think anything of him good or bad.
Tate had his crack at regular playing time this year and showed next to nothing for the amount of reps he got. Sure he caught Hoyer's first career TD, but one would think he would've thrived somewhat being on the field with Branch, Welker, and the TE's considering he was probably layed off of most consistently by opposing defenses. Not to mention he has plus speed, and all those things still didnt equate to getting open with any consistency. IMO he took a step backwards this year (as a wideout)...which is also an example of why we shouldnt get too carried away with Price either. For every Welker is also a Chad Jackson or 2...they aint all "weapons".
I agree with the general sentiment that it would be nice to get a bigger target with game breaking ability somehow to pair with Branch on the outside, Wes in the slot, and Tate kicked down the depth chart at WR and primarily a special teams player until he hopefully can work his way back up the food chain.
But Fitz at that money? that will never happen.
