Patriots Postseason Grades: Wide Receivers

Randy Moss: A-
The only thing separating Moss from a straight A was his string of inexplicable drops on deep balls this year. Where Moss did excel this year was in blocking, I had never seen Randy do so well blocking downfield.

Wes Welker: A
One of the funnest players to watch that ever donned a Patriots uniform, Welker is the glue that held this offense together this season.

Jabar Gaffney: C+
Gaffney had a couple of huge drops this year, but proved to be a reliable #3 WR that comes at a reasonable price. The Patriots would do well to re-sign him.

Sam Aiken: C
Aiken was a good addition on special-teams, although he was occasionally a bit over-zealous, garnering more than his fair share of penalties.

Kelley Washington: C
When healthy, Washington was his usual dominant special-teams force, however, that wasn’t the case much this year.

    Washington (when healthy) I think that explains the rest of the statement on him. Aiken however did make plays on offense a few times and seems to catch and run routes well. Moss lost his go up and get it at the highest point play this year. He warned us that expectations of a repeat from the year before were to high to live up to. Gaffney’s come through many times with the game on the line. I say let him compete with the other WR’s just because 1yr contracts are all he will sign for us. Welker is the new Troy Brown. Need to get Wes/Faulk off punt Returns Both these guys need to be one job guys let someone needing to stick work there way on the team at these spots. Couugh/cough Slater.

    Moss’ blocking was pretty good at times this year.
