    I do agree with TFB though that we should have resigned Welker. I was very upset that day.

     

    everyone uses the arugment that Welker look old now, that's bcz PM lead his ducks into strong safeties so Welker got killed all year.

    he would've been fine all year here and had a good season



    The problem is when you take that kind of a beating , after years of taking almost as bad a beating from safties and LB's going across the middle, you can turn old very fast...there's only so much tgrauma anyone can take, regardless of what kind of condition you're in...don't forget, these guys now use their offseason to get rest (not being hit) but getting stronger and in top condition for the rigours of real competition...their conditioning actually goes down during the season, it's why they started lifting programs DURING the season...all teams do it now...15 years ago that was unheard of...

    Once a footballers body starts turning old, it can go fast...Welker also has to worry about concussions..they are cummulative and potentially debilitating soon after playing is over...that also has to take a toll on effectiveness....They probably should have signed him...but what's done is done...I doubt they try to get him again

    First of all, the irony of a Welker fan boy calling for big WRs is not lost on me. Weren't you the one crying that the Pats should've done everything in their power to keep Wes Welker, the tiniest WR in the NFL?

    Secondly, we can argue over whether Decker is a deep threat or not (Anybody can be a deep threat with Denver's OL that made Peyton the least sacked, hurried, hit or pressured QB last season), but we won't argue whether Decker can beat press coverage. Maybe against scrubs like Arrington, but against above average CBs? Hell no. Dennard can take him out, can you imagine what Talib would do to him (Secretly hoping the Jets sign him so that Talib can smack him around and have you eat your words) ? =D

    As far as you calling for big WRs, James Jones and Nicks are 6'1 and both run 4.60+ 40s(We already have Thompkins 6'0 4.56). Dobson is 6'3 and runs a 4.42, 4.40, 4.44, Boyce is 5'11 and runs a 4.38, can bp 20 reps  (fast and physical).



    So I can't want the shorter guys for the slot and the taller guys for the outside?  I find it funny you think that is odd.  Man, you need to go back and read what I have been writing or are you just ignoring what I write so you can disagree? I said I want a taller,  outside receiver who is physical.  Joe made a list, I responded to the list.  Out of the list if they can't get a taller WR then I would be good with Nicks.  He is at least 6'1", not the 5'10" and 5'11" that is on his list.  You keep bringing up that we have Dobson.  Again, where was Dobson after the bye week?  9 Games that he didn't do anything.  He had only 6 receptions over 20 yards.  He only had 4 td's.  Why isn't he a red zone threat?  How many passes did he drop?  What happens if he is hurt and misses games this coming season.  Who else is there?  Far too many questions with him.  I really find it hard to believe this is such an issue with a couple of you.   

     



    Brady fell in love with Gronk and Edelman became new Welker. Brady has a habit of forcing the ball to guys he "trusts".  Plus, Dobson got hurt one week after the BYE, no surprise he was MIA.

    Plus, Decker can play in the slot, little guys aren't exclusive to the slots. Cruz is a slot, he's 6'0.

    I guess I don't get the point of your post here.



    You want big WRs, but a tiny slot when big WRs can play on the slot. Anquan Boldin plays in the slot, Hernandez played there...you don't need to be a midget like Welker to play there.
