    Will Galloway be an upgrade at 3rd reciever?

    Are the Patriots wasting there time with Galloway?  He will likely beat out Brandon Tate, Greg Lewis, Sam Aiken, and  Matt Slater.  Tate and Slater are too green to start.  Aiken and Lewis have had little production.  Galloway has been in the league since 1995.

    Does everyone else expect the Patriots to bring in another veteran?

    absolutley, he is an extrordinary athlete, he can still run a 4.3 or so and has tremendous speed. He was hurt last year and thus he didnt play he was cut becasue tampa is going in a run first direction. He will obviously be the number three with lewis as the no 4.  Believe me I saw this guy running and catching on the beach in miami in april, hes still got it!

    With all the weapons at Brady's command why not have a guy who runs the go route to perfection! I think when everyone see's him in a game streaking down the sideline and blowing by guys 15 years younger than him and Tom delivers a perfect strike in stride for an easy TD,opinions will change and you'll soon be singing his praises!!!! The man can still fly and like all the good ones he's going to be competing for a chance to play on the Patriots and one last chance for a Super Bowl ring.....

    If he stays healthy, no question about it.  Will Moss and Welker and of course Brady tossing the pigskin, Galloway could be a top flight WR in 2009.

    I like the pickup with Galloway.  I think we have some good depth at RB and WR going into the season.  We should be able to take the usual injuries and still have adequate weapons for TB.  I'd hate to be a defensive coordinator facing the Pats this year.  Unless you have one of the few teams with a bunch of defensive studs up front, you are facing a long game.

    I agree we do have some great depth on the team.except at QB.oh beleive me i hope brady is fine all season long,but it would be nice to have insurance there just in case.and maybe another LB.other then that the pats are set.

    He's not much of a threat to go across the middle - we know if he does that he'll be injured before the playoffs, which is the only time we need him.  Opposing D's will know this.  Brady prefers receivers who move horizontally rather than vertically.  So I wouldn't expect too much from him.

    When the Pats signed Jabar Gaffney from Logan International Airport(because he had no team to play for) he became a solid WR in the NFL.  Let's see what he does in Denver now, I predict not much.  Welker was a also a nice player, but nothing compared to what he became in NE.  Moss came off some very poor seasons in Oakland, also with injury issues.  Now he's breaking TD records. Galloway is a proven WR, who has just had age and injury issues. Brady has a way of making very average WR look great, so if Galloway stays healthy it could be huge for the Pats.

    Re: Will Galloway be an upgrade at 3rd reciever?

    Grogan77, good point that Brady, perhaps in conjunction with the Pats system (Welker did great with Cassel), can make a receiver look better than he might actually look elsewhere.  Not to get too far off topic, but this is related the the Brady vs. Mannning debate that's been on the forum recently.  Us Pats fans usually use 2 major points to put Brady on top; post season performance, and Brady never had star WR's until recently.  Have any of Manning's good WR's moved on to other teams to be lackluster performers, or were they still good?  I was just wondering if Manning truly has always had a great supporting cast, or if he also makes his WR's look good like TB?  In either case, Brady is still the better QB.

    Re: Will Galloway be an upgrade at 3rd reciever?

    I would still rather have Jabar Gaffney but i am bias as I am a big Gaffney fan and I was before he vene played here so I think he will be just fine in Denver. Gallaway is a good replacment but i would still rather have Gaffney, he could play any WR spot on the roster and Gallaway can not do that, he wont go over the middle the way Gaffney did and I dont see him coming down with any last second TDs in teh corner of the end zone the way Gaffney did in that Ravens game two years ago. I like Gallaway and he will add something new but i think Gaffney was the better fit.

    How much does Moss go over the middle??  Not much, and him and Brady seem to work out pretty good.

    He will only be as good as Brady's protection. 

    Personally I'm not to high on them.  Koppen and Neal are always braking down.  Light has always been a revolving door against quality competition and Kaczur just sux's.

    Hopefully some of the youth can win positions and contribute.

    Gaffney giveth and Gaffney taketh away. His great catch against the Ravens kept us undefeated. His drop against the Colts kept us out of the playoffs.

    Greg Lewis is not an upgrade over Gaffney dont be stupid. Just cause the man is no longer a Pat doesnt mean you have to sh*t on the guy. He had some very clutch moments as a Pat and even holds a record in the playoffs from his first year with the team. What that record is i dont know cause it is a random stat but he owns it. Greg Lewis could not have had come up with any of teh clutch catches Gaffney had while with this team. Gaffney was magic and i am sad he had to go.

    Brady would have broken the TD record years ago if he had Reggie Wayne and Marvin Harrsion.  And Probably would have given the Pats four SB rings by now.

    Re: Will Galloway be an upgrade at 3rd reciever?

    Grogan, you really hit the nail right on the head.  This guy is kind of like playing the lottery among a limited pool.  The upside on him is massive.  The downside is that he was injured last season and you're not certain how he will respond.

    To answer the initial question, not only are they not wasting their time with this guy, I can't believe other teams allowed them to pick him up.  He is one of the most underrated receivers I've ever seen.  His big play ability competely changes the dynamic of defending this team. 

    Perhaps I am overstating this BUT you could POTENTIALLY be looking at a three wide receiver set featuring three future Hall of Famers - I am not kidding about this.  Has this ever even happened before?

    If you guys think about two years ago (before the aquistions of Moss and Welker) Galloway probably would have been considered a 1 on our team especially with Cant Catch a Ball Caldwell still on the team, so i think having him as a 3rd option is amazing! That AFC championship game still haunts me, with the Camera panning to caldwell's eyes on of the like twelve times he dropped a ball, gosh darn it.

    Hey, Caldwell might just be a big hit in the Canadian Football league! 
    Man, how Brady makes the most out of very average players is ridiculous.

    Um, you don't know what Greg Lewis is going to do...I said that Lewis may be an upgrade to Gaff-me....that is a wait and see. 

    I think that it is funny that I said Lewis might be an upgrade to Gaff-me and I am sh!tting on Gaff-me.......good one.

    Re: Will Galloway be an upgrade at 3rd reciever?

    Galloway will certainly benefit from Moss and Welker (and, of course, Brady) being on the field. A defense cannot cover all three. Heck, it's tough enough just to cover Moss and Welker! At the beginning of the season defenses will focus on stopping Moss and Welker, since they know what those two can do, and "force" the Patriots to prove that Galloway can still play. That, obviously, will be their mistake. So I'd expect Galloway to put up some large numbers the first few games. Then as teams focus more on stopping him, that will open things up for Moss and Welker.
    And if teams try to stop all three WR's, they'll get killed by the running game and/or short passes to Faulk and the TEs.
    I almost feel sorry for opposing defenses.

    As for Lewis, I think he's about as good as a fourth WR gets. Unless there are injuries, I wouldn't expect a whole lot of production from him, but I do think he's a poor-mans Gaffney. So he is an upgrade over Aiken (but not Gaffney). Tate could possibly be the fourth WR by season's end (as long as he doesn't end up on the IR). Mike Reiss is real high on Edelman and thinks he'll (not only make the roster but) push for playing time.

    Galloway is washed up. Even in his prime, he never went over the middle. Forget him...he will be cut before the roster of 53.
