Edelman is not better than Welker, nor more clutch, but Edelman is a Patriot and I am a Patriot fan. So I'll root for Edelman, what's your excuse?
I'm a Patriots fan too. And I cheer for Edelman as well as the rest of the team every game of every week all season long as well as cheering for them to win the Super Bowl every single year. Big fan of Edelmans, he has a huge heart and will do anything asked of him to help this team win. But make no mistake about it, he still has a long ways to go. All the talk and all the threads about him really isn't fair to him, but when you have people continuously making threads about him being better then Welker, come on now. We all know better then that. I have no idea why some of these people on this forum try and push that garbage on us. Matter of fact, I have no idea why Rusty and RallyC continue to bring it up. If they know football they know what they are saying isn't true, don't know why they feel the need to troll the forum with it. I guess the thrive on this type of stuff. Homers will be homers.
You obviously are more of a Welker fan than you are a Pats fan! Edelman is better than Welker if only for the fact Edelman is still a Patriot. He also has fewer clutch drops than Welker no matter how many gifs you bring up to portray the opposite. Welker just isn't clutch. Welker is the greatest no-pressure slot receiver in league history. He just can't make the winning catches in the big game.
Are you the sister rusty always mentions?
Welker was the leading receiver in both SB's, so he obviously did something right. There were 7 (yes count them ) drops in SB 46. 4 on the last drive, 2 by 45Mil, hern and 1 for MVP, Branch. Where is your disdain for those players? No one was clutch but Welker was the best of the rest.
Fewer clutch drops in the big games? How many PO games has Edelman played in since 2009?
One??????????????????? How many for Welker? All but one?????????????????????? ugh
Edelman is a very nice player... All heart, but as far as putting him against Welker there is NO COMPARISON! Hell, Woody (as a receiver) is even out performing JE and Amandola.
JE also had 2 fumbles and a drop Sunday, but I guess that's ok. He also has as many drops as Welker, this year..... with less catches and yards and 4/9 TD's. Allrighty! carry on
Nope, not related to Rusty.
You are right, there is no comparison, Welker doesn't play for the Pats and doesn't have Brady throwing to him anymore so any comparison is pure conjecture.
And while Edelman had two fumbles, he recovered both of them. That is the definition of clutch. He just would not be denied.
