In response to RallyC's comment:
Where's the pretending? This is the most talented roster the Patriots have had in years. More speed, more youth, more athletic, where's the pretending? Are you talking about "proven" talent? Well, I can tell you this. They are on the New England Patriots who are in the top 5 of EVERYONE's polls, including Vegas, to win it all this year. There's your proof TFB. Please don't say you don't think they aren't paying attention to who has the talent and leadership to win it all, with Rooks as a consideration. Also, I will make a prediction that if Collins stays healthy, he will be our next Superstar, and that at least one of AD, Boyce, and ZS will be all pros in the coming years. All rooks who will play regularly.....
Top 5? weren't the Pats at the top of the list the past several years to win it all? Now they are dropping down and we can call it top 5, um okay. No doubt this team will be good, they should go 6-0 in the division and probably will finish 11-5 but talented enough to win it all?
So, let me get back to my initial statement..
I would still take Welker over any of our current WR's.
I Have seen many drops from our rookie class already in preseason that should have been caught. Amendola hitting the injury reports already and missed 1 preseason game, the most important one, already and watched him gas out in preseason game 2, and didn't he miss that pass from Brady for Brady's first incompletion of that game?
These rookie WR's have never played against the talent they will see this season. A couple looked good in preseason but they were going against a lot of 2's and 3's. How are they going to adapt to the NFL schedule compared to the college schedule? That's a huge factor that many don't even consider. Already Dobson isn't looking like we all hoped. Sims should probably be on the roster over Dobson with the way they looked preseason. Thompkins has probably looked the best, I am high on this kid, but still has a long way to go and had several dropped passes.
Here you start a thread based on drops yet I witnessed many more drops from these rookies in preseason then I seen Welker in an entire season.
You state at least 1 will be all pro in upcoming years, well that's not much of a prediction when you have Brady at QB. It's a better prediction then you Tebow one, I might add!
But I'm talking about this year... what about this year?
TFB, You write like the PATS should be ashamed of being in the TOP 5 favored to win the Super Bowl and that it is some kind of a criticism. The reality is that if your team is in Vegas' top 5, you are a real contender. FOR A TRUE BLOODED FAN, that is great news. Though it is harder to understand how someone not from the are is a die hard of a team from another city, I do see that in other posters such as Rusty who no matter how personally insulting and irritating some of you may find him, is always focused on what he thinks is right and wrong with the NE Patriots. He is loyal. I know this because I see him literally attack at times those who try to prop up other teams here. I like that! That said, I get the feeling that you are more of a Wes Welker fan than a die hard Patriots fan. And thats OK too, I got no problem with folks who just like a good team. Also, I do know that you can be a loyal fan even if from outside of the domain of the subject team. Would you mind sharing how and when you became a Pats fan? It will put perspective on where you are coming from. Me, I love football most, but I am from Boston and I bleed Red, White, Blue, Green, Black and Gold! Care to share?
