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
SOLID POST! Pretty much sums it all up right there.
I don't think Think Edelman ever played WR in a Super Bowl, our coach pretty much told us he wasn't good enough to line up and get a catch.
I have also read some crazy logic around this forum over the past few months and it pretty much goes like this - I guess if we don't win the Super Bowl these conversations really don't matter because nobody on this team is as good as the players who have won Super Bowls with the Patriots before and they all suck.
Wes Welker is not a Patriot today because of Bill Belichicks ego. His ego has caused problems here before but we can discuss that some other time.
Wes Welker is not a Patriot today because he dropped two easy passes that hit him in the hands costing the Patriots
1. A SB win
2. A chance to go to the SB.
He then wanted to be paid like f****** Calvin Johnson. Since the Patriots didn't want to invest 50 million in a guy that you have to put on the bench when the game is on the line they let him hit the market. And when Wes discovered the market for slot receivers who get stone hands in the 4th quarter was exactly what the Pats offered he got pouty and stormed off to play with Mr. Choke himself. They can now take turns blowing big games in Denver and you can go join them.
But now that Wes came out and f***** up just like we said he would in a big game all the crybaby fans feel they need to defend their position. Your position was defended on the field by Wes on Sunday, you were wrong- man up and get over it.
