In Response to Re: This is the Off season move Pats been looking for!!!! : Dwyer has had multiple weight issues (even his old college coach said that they had trouble keeping his weight down). He also ran in a heavy run system, does this remind you of anyone? Can you say Len White? Thomas is an interesting guy mainly do to his triangle numbers. He's a tough call but I'd like to see more of a route runner. The system he ran was overly simple and bearly touched 5 plays in the nfl receiver tree, even then he didn't run crisp routes. Add to that the S's and LB's crowding the line and it puts Thomas 1v1 with the cb. Given his triangle numbers it's hard for any cb to go 1v1 agianst someone his size without help overtop. To me he's the definition of a boom or bust player. If we didn't have as many holes or less need for sure players I would want him in a second. But, in this draft we need starters right away not players with high upside but also are extremely raw and ran less routes then some high school teams. I think they brought him in though and I'm sure they ran him through the white board. If they think he can handle the routes they will take a look otherwise I think they will pass.

Well thats the thing what kind of route running would you like to see? You will always have a guy on you, especially in the NFL. so you are going to have to improvise, your not going to run crisp routes, and with moss, welker, brady from april til september teaching him, I think hell learn by then how to do a clean out or a 15 yard post.
As far as 1 v 1 or Defenses crowding the line thats the beautiful thing, teams know us for Brady, Moss, welker, but NO other reciever, but screens, so if we have that over the top guy like THOMAS, they cant DOUBLE moss or THOMAS all the time cus then itll leave TATE, WELKER, EDELMAN, AIken in the slot for the screen or in the middle or dump off for faulk or jam it down their throats with Morris or Taylor or whoever we pick up.
As far as dwyer I know hes had his wieght problems but when you get money yyou get a personal chef and you get that crap under control.. LENDALE WHITE stoped drinking alcohol .. he dropped 40 lbs or whatever it was...he just got smarter.. I mean its tough to know exactly whats going on...
but with the reciever situation I like BENN but I LIke Thomas better and I Think if hes there we should pick him up, no hesitation.
