This proves what I've been saying:
Throw less, target each Welker and Hernandez LESS, and it helps Brady, the flow of the offense, and you'll see less drops.
Damn, man. Your man lust for Brady and Welker is somewhat scary.
This isn't about scapegoating one particular player it's about changing the philosophy of the offense.
How can you throw less to Welker when really, he is the main guy on the field. I believe they were throwing less to him when Gronk was out there but Gronk went down and out. Hernandez didn't play the whole season and Lloyd really didn't do what we all hoped he would do. So who do you suggest they throw to when Gronk and Hernandez and even Edelman are out and Lloyd cant seem to get open? Welker is the teams most dependable receiver so they gotta throw to him. I can't believe you do not understand this. You are blinded by your Welker hate! You are wearing rose colored glasses, pal.
The drop %'s argument is silly. Throw less so he drops less yet the % remains the same is your stance? What?? Makes no sense, especially when he is the main target because there isn't anyone else on the field as much as he is.
Can you imagine for a minute what last season wouold have looked like had the not franchised Welker and went with Edelman? He didn't last long, Gronk out, Hernandez out a lot, it would have been dreadful. Yet you want to get rid of the guy? Brilliant!
Tfb12 stay strong my friend. You are right here. Not the time to be getting rid of WELKER! That's for damn sure. Pats led the league in 3rd down efficiency, I wonder why..... Just the chemistry alone with Brady is huge in this league. A big advantage.
