Belichick on Josh Gordon playing: “We’ll see”

AP

Officially, Patriots receiver Josh Gordon‘s availability for Sunday’s game against the Dolphins falls into a broad range that extends from 99 percent to 50-ish percent. Unofficially, coach Bill Belichick is being even broader.

“We’ll see,” Belichick said on the question of whether Gordon will play.

Belichick separately praised Gordon (as much as Belichick ever does) for his effort since arriving 10 days ago.

“Josh is working hard on and off the field,” Belichick said. “He’s done everything he can do.”

Gordon’s abilities have been limited in large part by the hamstring injury he suffered two weeks ago, a tweak that became the final straw on his time in Cleveland. He didn’t play on Sunday night. It’s not clear whether he’ll play on Sunday.

It is clear that the Patriots clearly need him.

  1. Josh Gordon is going to hit the field. They can’t have Gronk doubled all game like last week. Gordon is going to play and he is going to play a lot.

  2. He ain’t playing. Thus the rash of WRs being worked out. They’re pretty much out of cap space thou so maybe next year they can make a move.

  3. If he’s not 100% I hope they sit him…,, don’t want him to rush back & do additional damage….got to think long term BIG PICTURE here…… I’m sure he still has lots to learn in the mean time so it wouldn’t be a total loss if he sits out………..
    Go Pats

    The decline and fall of the cheatin empire
    ————————————————————–
    31 desperate teams remained silent while Roger Goodell was convincing dimwits to ignore science so he could steal draft picks in order to achieve league parity.

    And now those 31 teams and their fans are all happy to have a chance at a participation trophy.

    Any word on when Roger Goodell plans on releasing the results of PSI study from the 2015 NFL season? It’s a shame that Roger Goodell is still hiding that information, and causing dimwits to still believe that someone let air out of footballs.

  5. BREAKING NEWS!

    New England Patriots acquire Ryan Shazier from Pittsburgh Steelers for conditional 19′ Draft Pick.

    Pats fans:

    OMGGGGGG Yes BB is a Genius! Ryan was so good in 2016-2017!!!

    Wake up Josh Gordon a junkie and cant count on him. Its over NE

  6. Be prepared for Gordon to show up Saturday with a pulled muscle or some other condition. Or, his anxiety forces him to go back to rehab for more treatment. We in Cleveland have seen it all.

    Kinda wondering why the Pats didn’t sign Eric Reid. They sure need all the help they can get on D.

    ———————-
    Belichick was interested in him converting to LB but Reid preferred safety, and another team was willing to play him at that position.

    5 games played in 5 years LOL
    the desperation feeling in Foxboro is priceless. NE fans are delusional
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Trolls have been calling NE fans delusional for a while now. Yet the Pats have been to 3 super bowls in the last 4 years and won 2. We had a crash and burn game in KC a few years back and were supposedly all done. Won it all that year.

    Every September NE fans look forward to know-nothings telling us we are done and delusional. Pretty much every January we ends up with the Pats in the AFC championship. We realistically root for 3 playoff game a year. You root for us to implode every year.

    So who is delusional?

    Geesh. No coach ever tips his hand. Sorry Pats fanboys but your Daddy, BB, didon’t invent this strategy.

    Now that’s funny
    Someone calling nofooldrool a “patriot fanboy”
    Nobody said that BB invented anything. But it is clear that BB perfected the strategy.

    Vince Lombardi and Bill Walsh > Belichik. Lombardi and Walsh didn’t cheat.

    Nothing like telling everyone that you still can’t understand 7th grade science.

    Any word on when Roger Goodell plans on releasing the PSI information from the 2015 NFL season?

    Who ever said BB invented anything? I was simply pointing out that he was playing his cards close. Its pretty universally known that many coaches have done this, or really almost all. And then you are even more wrong calling me any Patriots fanboy.

  12. Billy boy , even though your nonsense gives bandwagon nation the chilly willies nobody else cares. You are simply another also ran trying to remain relevant. You think you have the dolphns all up in arms with your old tired routine ? You didn’t even have the lions up in arms. Listening to you is like watching The Rifleman reruns

    You got all that out of a comment saying… “we’ll see”

    Appears that someone is trying way too hard to find fault.

    I remember one time Andy Reid brought out the team doctor to speak on McNabb’s availability in a press conference. So before you go around making blanket statements you might want to learn a little football history. Or at the very least use a qualifying word so you aren’t saying things that are objectively false and incredibly easy to disprove.

  15. This seems to be the cycle:

    1. Patriots have a rough September.

    2. Trolls come out and harass patriot fans ad nauseam. They also predict that this will be the year the Patriots finally suck.

    3. Patriots make it to at least the AFC Championship, half the time making it to the Superbowl, and then half of those times winning the Superbowl.

    4. Patriot fans shove it back in the face of the trolls about how wrong they are *again* about the Patriots demise.

    5. Trolls then call Patriot fans obnoxious and arrogant because Patriot fans stuck up for themselves and the team they root for.

    6. Repeat it all again next September.

    Eventually this cycle will break, 11 AFCCGs in 15 years is a really hard pace to keep up.

    With that user name you are calling other people fanboys?

  18. ‘Vince Lombardi and Bill Walsh > Belichik. Lombardi and Walsh didn’t cheat.’

    Not sure about Lombardi, but you are wrong on Walsh.

    Jerry Rice used stickum (by his own admission)

    And Montana? Montana himself has stated that his offensive linemen also broke some NFL rules. “Our offensive linemen used to spray silicone on their shirts until they got caught,” Montana said, according to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review

    So you probably shouldn’t throw out that ‘fact’ anymore.

  19. Gordon is not a guy we can rely on until he shows it. he does not need to be superman.
    If Josh could be a Drive starter plus end zone threat .That would be Huge having him be like Lafell from the 2014 team.

    Seems to me every team cheats every week. Some are called penalties. All these franchises take measured risks. Sometimes they get caught, sometimes they don’t. But they all cheat to win – on the field, off the field, and anywhere they can. Just like corporations – which they mostly are.

  21. How about putting Hollister on IR since always Dinged up. Add Stephen Anderson to active Roster. Anderson could be a nice Mismatch chess Piece. He could Play Split end Slot H-back. Not a good Blocker for a TE but at each spot would block either a saf or a Corner.

  22. Wow, the hate is real.

    Anyone that follows the team knows that Josh Gordon is attached to the hip of the Character Coach. He was even playing catch with him before the game in Detroit (they weren’t going to leave him to his own devices back in Boston).

    Belichick is a military guy and they are building Gordon from the bottom up. This is his last stop. He can’t get his career back on track until he gets life back on track. Anything can happen, but I’m rooting for him.

  23. I just traded for Josh in my fantasy league…. gave up jets RB Crowell & Greenbays WR Geronimo Allison…..
    I think I may have made the steal of the league come week 6
