I know there is alot of talk about WR's and I agree that we could use a deep threat WR in the draft or in FA but it sounds like most people on here have alreadt written off Welker. I know the franchise would be a huge chunk of money and I know there is talk of franchising Talib. So who do you choose?? Do most of y'all really think Welker is gone even tho he has been Brady's go to guy since he arrived in 2007? I hope they keep him but I am starting to have my doubts after hearing the cooments on here.
unless he changes his tune and lowers his "need" dramatically i dont see it.
and in fact i think both financially and shceme wise it may be time to move on. having him be where most of the offense goes i dont think is in the best interest of a sb team.
if he were a 6 2" outside threat 100+ passes thatd be great. or half of a big receiver set with 50-70 passes.
we need bigger recevers possession and vertical, and we need our qb looking at them, not dumping every pass 4 yards to win sbs.
likewise on defense, bb needs to advance his defense to the modern game and make more of a penetrating/pressuring defense.
Sure would be nice to see what the outcome would be if Gronk was able to play in NE's (2) most important games recently (Super Bowl vs. NYG, 2013 AFC Championship vs. BALT)...
agreed. talk about a big possesion receiver.. still need the outside big wr wh ocan separate to make it impossible to shut down the pats offense (and the proper utilization and threat of the runnning game - which you cant do with an empty set). has the josh fun adn gun won anything yet beside a playoff birth). want to leave no room for error no matter what comes up come playoffs.
