Many People Are Now Calling Josh Gordon The Next Randy Moss

With the rumors coming true that Josh Gordon is now on the New England Patriots, is he the key the Patriots need to improve their offense?

Many People Are Now Calling Josh Gordon The Next Randy Moss

"Flash" Gordon. He's been quite the story these past couple of days and as of this afternoon, he was officially traded to the New England Patriots for a conditional fifth-round pick. This, coming off the fact that on Saturday, Cleveland Browns general manager John Dorsey tweeted out that the team was going to release or trade Gordon by Monday. Now that he's on the New England Patriots, is this what the Patriots needed to kick-start their slow offense?

Gordon, many now calling him the next Randy Moss, is definitely going to fit into offense very nicely as the season goes on. It's going to be a little rough for him in the beginning, since he has to learn a brand new playbook, but as the season progresses, he'll get in a groove with Tom Brady and find his role in this offense. That and the fact that almost any player that comes from the Browns to the Patriots usually will have a big impact on the team. You look at players like Barkevious Mingo, Jabaal Sheard, and Dion Lewis and see how their success from the Patriots helped them become better players on other teams with more important roles.

Looking at Josh Gordon overall, this is something that the Patriots have to be drooling all over. A giant at 6 foot, 3 inches, 225 pounds, I'm sure they are going to pair him in the slot with Hogan and Patterson. With that, they are probably going to use his height with possessions in the red zone, since every team targets Rob Gronkowski as the primary target for this part of the field. He is going to be a nice red zone target.

Another thing to look at Gordon about is his age. He is 27 years old, meaning that he is starting to get into his prime and what better team to be in your prime with than the New England Patriots. We saw this in many players, including Randy Moss, Deion Branch, Tom Brady, and others all displaying their prime on this team and showing what they can do. If the Patriots use Gordon the right way, we may see his prime make him a really great football player, maybe even a Hall of Famer (but that's too early to tell.)

With the New England Patriots now bringing in another important receiver to add to Tom Brady's receiving core, don't be surprised if Gordon and Corey Coleman come in the game together as x-factors. Remember, Coleman and Gordon were both receivers for the Cleveland Browns up until this upcoming season. We also have other Patriot players that were on the Browns that have made an impact, some like Jason McCourty and Danny Shelton. To add to this Belichick was the coach for the Browns for a time until he became the coach of the Patriots, so does this conspiracy seem like something that could be true?

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
