Austin Collie (1 Viewer)

Some blog by Field Yates on ESPN Boston:

On Austin Collie's final-drive contributions: "That was pretty cool for him to come in and play the way he needed to play. We're counting on him, and that's why he's here. He's a veteran player who's played in a lot of big games and who was really productive when he played for the Colts and he's getting his opportunity here and he's making the most of it. He has the confidence for the coaches to put him in the game really at the biggest point and made two huge plays."
Considering Sunday was Collie’s 11th day as a Patriot, his ability to come through in that critical situation, without the benefit of a huddle, was not overlooked by Belichick. The coach praised Collie, telling reporters he has spent more than two hours daily working overtime with position coach Chad O’Shea. It showed on the final march.
Then, once again, Collie rose up in the critical situation: fourth-and-4, with 24 seconds remaining.
“Got an out-route and you just make sure you get separation and make sure you catch the ball when it comes to you,” he said of the 9-yard catch in which he shook safety Malcolm Jenkins with authority. “It was a big down.”

I know he has been as injury prone as Amendola, but Collie really does have the talent and is in the right situation. I have not read anything of his knee holding him back so he might be at 100%. Amendola took a big shot and I will be surprised to see him back within a couple of weeks. Dobson has dropped passes and made mistakes that have pissed off Brady to no end. Edelman is somewhat reliable but has made mistakes. I think Thompkins is safe after that big catch. He made a gigantic fourth and 4 catch that will certainly earn the trust of Brady and BB. I really think the cards are falling into place for Collie to contribute. He is hungry, signed a contract that he can't sue if he gets injured (showing how much of a risk he is taking for the love of the game). He wants to play football and he is putting in the extra time.

That definitely showed a lot. After over a year, Ocho wasn't able to get on the field in those situations. I wouldn't be surprised if Collie has value down the stretch.

 
I think collie has way more talent than edelman. Wouldnt be surprised if he took his job. Its those damn concussions
