Josh Gordon: “No doubt I’m going to take advantage of this opportunity”

The Patriots got their first in-game look at wide receiver Josh Gordon since trading for him earlier this month and Gordon had a positive impact in the 38-7 demolition of the Dolphins.

Gordon was targeted twice by Tom Brady and caught both passes for 32 yards as part of the best offensive outing of the young season for New England. Brady said it was great to have Gordon out there and added that the wideout “kind of got us going in certain areas” during the home win.

Gordon said “it’s been awesome to have [Brady’s] support” and predicted that more good things will come as they continue to flesh out their partnership.

“I have no doubt I’m going to take advantage of this opportunity,” Gordon said in his postgame media session. “I’m more than blessed. I’m extremely grateful to be put in this scenario. I think the only thing right for me to do is take full advantage of it. I’m loving it, I’m enjoying it, the guys here are great, it’s a real home environment and I feel as comfortable as ever here. It’s awesome.”

It will be a quick turnaround for Gordon, Brady and the Patriots as they will be hosting the Colts on Thursday night.

  1. Great. Just what the Patriots need. A focused Gordon. I live in New England…. think I’ll go see if Josh needs anything to relax him. (I kid, I hope the kid does well just wish it was with another team… like the Cowboys (: )

  2. Gordon always tells people what they want to hear, but always lets them down. Hope it’s for real this time.

  3. Good for Josh. Hopefully he told his family not to make any plans for January and February.

  4. Terripet, hasn’t anyone told you that Colts Fandom is like a cloistered religious order? It has an Opus Dei type following that doesn’t believe in corporal mortification but rather psychological mortification.

    For example, you suffer not only the punishing, crushing defeats at the hands of the Patriots, you also gift wins like today’s to the Texans after taking a lead despite trailing by 18 in the third quarter. That’s painful.

  5. “It has an Opus Dei type following that doesn’t believe in corporal mortification but rather psychological mortification.”

    You just went WAY over his head with that. I can only imagine the look on his face when he read it.

  6. “I have no doubt I’m going to take advantage of this opportunity,”

    I think you’re the only one. Everyone else is wondering when you’re going to be suspended again or do something to get cut from the Patriots. It’s not “if”, it’s “when”.

  7. I hope it’s just the beginning of great things to come….. it’s still real early in the process so I’m still skeptical based on past actions, but I do wish him the very best at staying focused & on the right path…..I believe if ANY LOCKEROOM can salvage his career it’s the Patriots…..
    GO JOSH!!!!

    Thats fine. He just hung a banner. Its the Indy answer to everything.

  9. The guy has probably been tested every week for the last year and a half. The fact he was reinstated must mean he’s been testing clean. The issues are probably more social and personality based at this point. He’s got another chance and I’m praying he’s successful at it.

  10. Gordon got his feet wet The wideouts started to gel and scored some tds Patterson made a great catch and run dorsett made some nice grabs too.good 60 min win proud of the defense Hightower played well the secondary and dline stepped up linebackers too.

  11. New England fans: intelligent initial posts or retorts that are either witty, factual, or both.

    Colts fans: Hilariously bad predictions, sentence fragments, emotionally-driven dreck. Boring, one word utterances.

    We don’t just win on the field.

  12. I sure Hope so Josh. I am rooting for you as a Person who has dealt with Drug issues. I hope do well on the field. The little bit seen today still oozing with so much Talent. That Broken tackle run was sweet.
