In response to RallyC's comment:
+1 with the caviat that RIGHT NOW, Edelmann IS the superior player. The truth is Wes' best days are behind him, while JE's and yes, Danny Amendola's are clearly ahead of him, thereby making Bills decision on who to sign correct.
As long as Edelman is a Patriot, Danny Amendola will never have a year close to what Edelman had this season. If Edelman would happen to leave after this season, Amendola won't be able to make it a full season taking the hits a 100 reception receiver takes.
See, most here dont take into account the complexity of this offense, especially from the receiver perspective. For the amount of time missed and it being his first year with the offense, DA did pretty well. To expectatios? No.
Finally! You admit Amendola didn't come close to what you and Rusty said he was going to do. Told ya!
But who does when coming to the PATS complex route trees and checks?
Um, Moss did. But he didn't run complex routes that you mention.
Oh, wait! Welker did!
2007 = 112 receptions, 1175 yards, 8 td's. How did that compare to Amendola's first season as a Patriot?
The future is very brite for these guys if they remain Pats. DA makes a big jump next season. Watch Confidence is bred from familiarity And getting comfortable. He's got the tools.
Are you saying that if they go to another team their future isn't bright? If so then I am curious, are you talking so highly of them because they are Patriot players and your mind will change about them if they play for someone else?
Your predictions don't mean a lot around here, you haven't made one correct prediction this season.
Thank goodness Edelman didn't go to the Giants when they had interest in him. I don't recall, did the Giants ever offer him a contract or were they just using him to get Cruz to sign? Why didn't BB sign Edelman to a longer contract then just 1 year? It's now going to cost a bundle to keep him after this year.
Whatever the case.. Thank goodness this team had Mr. IncrEDELMAN this season.
