Nope. Expecting one to three long touchdowns to Dobson this week, one on a fake reverse bomb.


One to three long touchdowns huh. By "long" you mean...how many yards?


35+.


You think he will have 35+ yard TD's.

Against arguable one of the best pass defense in the league

I think they might have some inclination, considering they played them in the preseason and practiced with them.

Optimistic and delusional aren't synonyms.

I am pretty optimistic about the offense this year. However, I am not delusional.

Nobody can watch the previous game & say Dobson's route running & athleticism appeared to be nothing less than superb. The double move on the (dropped) was a thing of beauty.

I don't remember anyone ever doubting Dobson's athletic ability.

It's also not his ability to run the routes, it's running the routes Brady wants him to run.

Except NBT before Dobson was drafted by the Pats Laughing

(well, he wasn't "Dobson-esque" until the Pats drafted him)

Seems you missed the preseason, where being unable to beat press coverage & sloppy routes were issue, and his hands his trademark.

He dropped a number of passes in practice. In fact, every practice report seemed to be "a mixed day for Dobson, he made some great catches but dropped some easy ones"

I still don't think beating an awful Dee Milliner and Kyle Wilson proves the guy can beat good CB's off the line. He had a few nice plays going against Cromartie but also some pretty bad ones.

You definitely had posts after he was drafted about how he was faster and more athletic than you remembered. Apparently that means you thought he was among the best WRs ever after he was drafted. Oh wait, you still do Wink

Not even close; he fits out teams offense perfectly. . I'd still much prefer Cordarelle Patterson.

I don't remember sloppy routes being his issue towards the end of pre-season, it was his lack of physicality and response to physical play. That didn't seem to be as much of a problem in week 2.
