    Edelman is a pretty good return man in my opinion. He's returned several for TD and he had a good punt return yesterday too. I assume McDaniels has abandoned his Edelman over Welker expirement for good (though Welker's drop issues lately may lead to McDaniels reconsidering again).

    He has two punt returns for TDs in his career. He is currently tied 21st amongst qualified players (one return per game played). At best he is a slight below average punt returner. Like most things on the field though, I think BB put a high value on simply handling the punt (catching it cleanly, and consistently) which is not easy! Just ask Troy Brown. 

    I actually do not mind him back there. This offense does not need dynamic special teams plays to make up for short comings (like the Chicago Bears need those plays from Hester). I am happy with a guy who will just always catch the punt and make the correct decision on faircatching versus letting it bounce.

    we have demps next year.

    will test bb's overvaluing of edelman.

    my hunch is he keeps him

    id have preferred adding a welker replacement and dropping edelman in the offseason.

    Edelman is a JAG but a JAG that plays multiple roles which is why he's on the team. He's a 5th WR, main PR, emergency CB, emergency QB, and a 2 unit ST gunner. That's his role. As such he's opening roster spots because of the amount of roles he fills that would normally be taken up by JAGs which gives BB flexibility within the roster to carry extra guys. As such to me he has a welcome spot on the team. I mean really people you can't fill all 53 spots with pro-bowl caliber players, you do need JAGs to fill certain roles on the cheap



    unitl you try to make him a starting wr. tehn you are jsut hurting the team.

    by the way, mankins looked liek crap after he got injured (until he came out)




    That makes no sense. You can't have a team full of starters, that's completely unrealistic. You have to put some role players in to fill out the roster. The more roles that those players fill the better because it opens up jobs for specialists (such as Slater).

    Really, a player looked like crap after getting injured, is the sky blue too?

    Re: Edelman

    Edelman is useful as a punt returner, but I think this offense would have been better if Gaffney had stuck.  Gaffney has quietly become the number 3 receiver for the Dolphins.  He's no star--but I really think he brings a more useful receiving skillset to an offense than Edelman does.  I know Edelman made a few nice catches in camp and in one or two games this season, but generally, I don't see Edelman as a very consistent receiver and Gaffney, if not great, at least brings a predictable level of performance.  Plus, he's 6-2.  It would really be nice to have some size in our wideouts.

    My favorite part of that was Edleman being a scapegoat for Mankins looking like my sister trying to block. lol

    Even if Edelman made a mistake on a route, it's pretty irrelevant on that play, tommy. You're 9 mil per year LG got bowled over which led to his leg being injured.  

    It's getting a little tiring watching this wounded warrior routine from Mankins.  If you aren't healthy, take a seat. We have 2, possibly 3 (Cannon) capable reserves who can run block and pass block.

     

    Another brilliant and unbiased observation from rusty, but here's what REALLY happened:

     

    After re-watching the second half of the Patriots' Week 10 win over the Buffalo Bills, passing along picked-up notes and observations.

    1. Facing a 3rd & 5 on their opening drive of the second half, the Patriots offensive line was presented with a unique front from the Bills' defense. Defensive tackles Kyle Williams and Marcell Dareus were actually standing up at the snap and hovering over the interior of the Patriots' line. The two looked to be on a gap-stunt between the center, Ryan Wendell, and either guard. On the play, Dareus was able to sneak past Wendell and collapse the pocket, while left guard Logan Mankins caught Williams in his rush. Unfortunately for Mankins, Wendell was pushed to the ground by Dareus, and Mankins subsequently fell over Wendell, allowing Williams and Dareus to combine for a sack of Tom Brady to end the drive. It was on this play that Mankins injured his left ankle. That added injury to insult  Field Yates.
