Josh Gordon 2019 Outlook

Recommended Posts

Guess the Pats jumped the gun trading Thomas.  Now Gordon will only have to compete with Dorsett for outside looks.

Quite frankly, not really sure how to comment on Josh Gordon’s outlook without bringing up the “other situation”, as it definitely has an impact. But I’ll try my best to keep everything focused on Gordon.

 

I’m expecting everything to be the same as it was 24 hours ago, aside from the DT trade news. The DT departure probably affected Dorsett and Meyers more than anyone, but still thinning up that WR depth still helps Gordon’s, especially if there are injuries or other incidents with other NE WRs higher up the rankings than him. Means that there’s less depth to rely on and that they’ll need to lean on the top guns like Gordon more.

 

Also any off field incidents usually take some time for the NFL to investigate before they make any ruling, unless there’s clear an obvious evidence (such as videos) to support the incident. So for the immediate future I’d still expect Gordon to be competing with the likes of AB, Edelman, Dorsett, and Meyers for targets.

You forgot to include White with those competing for targets.

It took time though before the NFL decided to hand down the suspension. Not saying there won't be one, just saying it's highly unlikely they come to a decision before the Patriots next game (and likely the next few after that). Gordon's still 3rd on the depth chart heading into this week's matchup against MIA, but should still be able to feast on this defense.

Lost in the discussion of the developing “other situation” is the role Gordon played in Sunday’s game. The Pats ran Gordon up the seam for both his TD catch and deep completion - something they’d often do with Gronk as a bid bodied WR.

 

 

Let’s be clear, Gordon is not Gronk. But I think we need to entertain the idea that Gordon will be utilized in this offense in both X and Y pass catching roles. His size/frame will fill a unique role that’s missing in that offense.

Let’s be clear.  Gordon is better than Gronk!    He’s Flash Gordon!

Gronk and Hogan got a combined 127 targets last season. A piece of that is more than enough for Gordon to produce as a WR2 with AB and Edelman next to him.

I’m worried about Flash this weekend. 

 

I could see NE up 24-3 at half time. Killing the clock with Burkhead in the 2nd half. 

Mid you don’t get a big piece in the first half, you might be screwed.

How do they get 24 points?............

This narrative always confuses me. Yes, players may be factored out in a lopsided game but many points need to be scored for that to happen.

AKA good chance said player put up good numbers early in the game.

Everyone going off like "Oh Antonio Brown this, Antonio Brown that."

People forget one thing: Josh Gordon is better than Antonio Brown.

Yeaaaaaa about that

 

As long as AB is playing gordon is bench worthy. Not going through the headache of figuring out the Pat's offense week to week

The way they use him you'd think he was in the doghouse. Not a lot of go to plays for him. You can see Brady force feed Edelman and Brown.  Hasn't happened with Gordon.  Brady also went away from Gronk too often last year.
