    Glad Welker, Talib, and Spikes Are Gone

         Ex-Patriots Wes Welker, Aqib Talib, and Brandon Spikes are gone, and all three have either criticized BB, ridiculed the Patriot Way, and/or have accused BB of falsifying injury reports. I say, goodbye and good riddance to these three bitter ingrates. Why refer do I refer to them as "ingrates"?

    1.) Wes Welker: Welker was to begin the 2007 NFL season as an obscure slot receiver playing for the terrible Miami Dolphins, who were just being taken over by "Mr. Fail Fast First", Cam Cameron. That Miami team would narrowly escape the ignominy of an 0-16 season.

         BB spared Welker from that fate, when BB traded his second and seventh round draft choices for Wes...who at the time had been a restricted FA. This resulted in Wes getting a raise, getting to play with the best QB of all-time, and getting to play for one of the best teams in the game. Wes would both blossom and flourish in New England, as he set himself up for a huge pay day as an UFA in 2013, at age 32.

         Though the Patriots had offered Wes a two year, $16mil. deal in 2012, he turned it down. In 2013, the Patriots reduced their offer to approximately a two year, $12mil. deal. Wes spurned that offer as well, and ended up signing with the Denver Broncos for approximately the same amount of money that the Patriots had initially offered to him.

         As a result of his six (6) years with BB in New England, Wes became a star, and a wealthy man. One has to wonder if any of this would have come to pass, had he not had been liberated from Miami? Yet...after leaving for Denver, he has repeatedly dissed BB for being paranoid and a control freak, especially in regards to players talking with the media. 

    2.) Aqib Talib: Talib, a #1 draft pick by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2008, had seen his career in tatters due to injuries, off-field stupidity, and the lethargy that can result from years of playing for a bad team. Desperate for help at CB during the 2012 season, BB took a chance by trading Tampa a 4th round draft choice for Talib, at the mid-season point.

         To Talib's credit, he awarded BB for the opportunity of going from a terrible Tampa team to the contending Patriots by quickly learning the Pats defensive system, and contributing pro-bowl caliber play. The Pats rewarded him in 2013 with a one year, $5mil., prove it over a full season deal. Again, to his credit, Talib justified BB's faith in him by performing at a pro-bowl level, staying out of trouble, being a model player, and a team leader. On more than one occasion, BB, not one known to hand out compliments to his players, praised Talib to the hilt for his efforts.

         Thus, Talib put himself in a position to hit the jackpot in free agency, going into the 2014 season. The Patriots, concerned over Talib's durability, were hesitant to offer a huge money, long term deal. Instead, the Denver Broncos would step up, and igned Talib to a 6 year, $57mil. deal.

         Though Talib had made it well known after the 2013 season that he had wished to remain a Patriot, almost immediately after signing with Denver, he began criticized BB. Most recently, Talib accused BB of falsifying injury reports, claiming that he hadn't had a hip injury problem since his early days in Tampa. Yet, we who watched him play, and saw him waddle off the field hurt, suspect differently: http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2014/03/19/spikes-talib-say-patriots-file-false-injury-reports/

    3.) Brandon Spikes: During the 2010 NFL draft, many "experts" had predicted that Spikes would slip significantly down the draft board, due to him having ran a very slow (4.99) forty at the Combine. Yet, BB would select Spikes with his second round pick (62nd overall). As a result, Spikes got paid fairly well, as opposed to how he would have been paid as a 5th round pick. Spikes jutified BB's faith in him with solid play as a run-stuffing ILB.

         But, character issues had begun to surface from the get-go. First, there was that pornographic video Spikes was in, that was on You-tube. Next, Spikes began to be a disciplinary problem by being late for team meetings, and being the only player to fail to appear at "voluntary" workouts.

         Last season, Spikes suffered a knee injury midway through the season. Though he continued to play in pain, it clearly was effecting the quality of his play. Finally, after he was late for a team meeting, a decision was made to place him on IR. Though being late for the meeting likely played a part in this decision, it was obvious that he was severly limited due to the bum knee. Already not the swiftest of LBs, the knee slowed him even more...and opposing teams were beginning to take advantage.

         Thus, the decision was made to allow Spikes to leave through free agency. About  week ago, he signed a one year, $3.25mil. deal to play for the rival Buffalo Bills.

         Thereafter, rather than thank BB for giving him the opportunity of playing for a great team, and prove that he could play well enough to merit $3.25 million for a years worth of play, he too chose to accuse BB of falsifying injury reports, claiming that BB had placed him on IR for disciplanary reasons, only. Again, Patriots fans who watched him play late last season know that he was severly hampered due to his bum knee.

         The bottom line is that all three of these guys achieved wealth and fame, thanks primarily to BB. BB rescued Wes Welker from a disaster in Miami. Getting to play in the New England system with Tom Brady transformed Wes into a star. BB may have literally saved Aqib Talib's career. Spikes might have been selected far later in the draft than 62nd overall. With his speed dificiencies, who knows how well he would have performed, had he played for a lesser team...coached by a lesser coach.

         Shame on all three of these ingrates...and...good riddance!

    Come on TP, seriously?  It's not like they didn't help the team win games and in a couple instances get to a Super Bowl or two.  Just imagine what the D would have looked like the past 2 years with out Talib and Spikes, and the offense without Welker.  There is a trade off here.  Maybe they have some legit issues they felt were unfair.  Could that be too hard to imagine?  Maybe for Welker you should have added in how he way outplayed his initial contract.  You know, some teams reward guys like that and redo contracts when it is obvious that a player is out performing his contract.

    TP....  I think you are hard on these three because of how they left the team and what they said about the team once signed by another.  Just sour grapes on their part and leave it that way.

    On another note, you are correct about Talib, the way he hobbled, it certainly looked like his hip.

    I don't have a probelm that they choose to leave but I do think their comments about BB after they left reflect poorly on their character. The orignal poster is correct.

    The Talib situation is interesting and I hope more info comes out on this.  Will wait to see if there is more to it.  If not, then yeah, I agree with you.

    The Spikes situation is one that has been disputed by Spikes agent from the very begining, when Spikes was first placed on IR.  Spikes felt he could continue to play, he had been playing up until that point.  It very well could have been a punishment to him for being late.

    The Welker situation just baffles me why you would even include him in this.  The whole deal was messed up, it was to the point that it probably was best to go separate ways at that point.    Funny thing is they did the same to Edelman, didn't make an offer until the morning FA opened, and it was a take it or leave it offer.  The only difference is the Pats couldn't sign anyone immediately like they did Amedola and nobody apparently offered Edelman anything worth taking.

    Re: Glad Welker, Talib, and Spikes Are Gone

    We have the best LB corps in the NFL now, Spikes can suck a pickle. If only we had Woodward to make the for an awesome 5 man rotation between Mayo, Hightower, Collins and Beau!

    Talib gets no love for me, never healthy when we need him. Glad he's gone too. Not to mention, Josh Gordon made him look a fool, I would hate to see how Calvin Johnson makes him look. Revis > All CBs.

    Welker, I don't like the guy, but if Brady comes out all mopey to start the season like last season, the. I'll say letting him go was a mistake. But if all these WRs get in sync, without Welker here for Tom to play favorites with, this could make for a great WR corps.

    Time to draft two OL in the draft!

    Re: Glad Welker, Talib, and Spikes Are Gone

    I think you're kinda taking this the wrong way. Maybe not WW's case but Spikes/Talib may just be upset because BB wouldnt match Denver's offer and not even talk to SPikes.

    They are treating it like a bad breakup is all. They say things they probably dont mean.

    I'm really only defending Talib. Even though he screwed us twice, he did love playing for BB and the Pats and it changed him and made him elite. `

    Spikes just isnt a Patriot. Plain and simple. He likes to be himself and act stupid and immature and he's not good enough to do that. only gronk is. Spikes is jsut sour.

    Welker and BB hate each other. no doubt. BB screwed WW on the offer and WW scrwed the team acting like a bi*ch over a small amount.

     

    Don't have sour grapes like these three. Be glad for what they brought to the team and be glad that 2/3 have been replaced by better players (Revis and Collins/Hightower) and the other 2 younger options (JE & DA)

    Let them be the one's who say the things they dont mean. not us.

    Good career in NE to all three. good luck moving forward

    Re: Glad Welker, Talib, and Spikes Are Gone

    TP, while I think you might be a little too fired up about the issues with these three, I hear where you're coming from.  The biggest issue I have is with Welker.  He developed this entitled attitude ever since he began putting up numbers here in NE while playing with the GOAT and in one of the best systems in the NFL.  Keep in mind this is the very same system that just helped a 7th round converted QB to achieve the 100 reception milestone.

    He had the audacity to try to take BB to the cleaners in contract negotiations and his ego took a hit once he realized the market wasn't going to pay him what he wanted, nor was BB.  The Pats, specifically BB, gave him the chance to be who he is today after being cut in SD and being irrelevant in Miami.  If he wanted to leave, fine.  But the fact that he went trashing BB once he was gone is not only disrespectful to his former employer who helped make him who he is today, but it makes him look like a spoiled brat.

     

    I'm really not too concerned about the Talib and Spikes issue.  No hard feelings there.  Spikes thought he could continue to play hobbled, BB didn't.  Meanwhile, Talib is trying to reassure the Denver FO that his hip, which routinely flares up, is not an issue.  Nothing to see there.

    Re: Glad Welker, Talib, and Spikes Are Gone

    I do agree on Spikes and Talib, but not on Welker. Spikes clearly is a punk...let's see...he's got his own porn video that he stars in, he's been suspended in college for...what was it? Spitting? I can't remember. He is famous for his inappropriate tweets. He doesn't work out here in the off season and came into this season out of shape - too me he never really took that next step and improved much from the guy who walked through those doors as a rookie. He is the same guy - good instinct and a physical thumper - he never improved in pass coverage, he never took training seriously and he never became a leader on that defense.

    Talib is a known thug, who I think the Patriots were wise not to resign. This guy had problems in college, problems in Tampa and probably will have problems in Denver sooner or later. This is a guy who shot at someone - I know he was going after his sister's boyfriend, but he shot at the guy! He punches his team mates in the face. Anyone ever see him do an interview? Believe me the Patriots didn't want anyone to see any of those...wow! The Sports hub jokingly plays some clips of them now that he is gone because they can, the patriots don't mind anymore now that he is Denver's problem. This guy will get hurt, that is a virtual guarantee.

    As for Welker, I have no beef with him. The guy was great for us; he played hard, he played hurt, he played tough, he stayed on the field, you didn't hear anything about him, he produced, he was under paid at times, and he came back from a devastating injury without missing a beat. He also most likely played with multiple concussions that he never complained about. He said a few things after he left, but it wasn't too bad. I'll always appreciate this guy as a player.

    BB, like many other coaches, fudge injury reports.  So, when players come out and report that BB basically lied about injury reports - why are you surprised? So, assuming that Talib and Spikes is telling the truth, why would that make them classless?

    Re: Glad Welker, Talib, and Spikes Are Gone

    I do agree on Spikes and Talib, but not on Welker. Spikes clearly is a punk...let's see...he's got his own porn video that he stares in, he's been suspended in college for...what was it? Spitting? I can't remember. He is famous for his inappropriate tweets. He doesn't work out here in the off season and came into this season out of shape - too me he never really took that next step and improved much from the guy who walked through those doors as a rookie. He is the same guy - good instinct and a physical thumper - he never improved in pass coverage, he never took training seriously and he never became a leader on that defense.

    Talib is a known thug, who I think the Patriots were wise not to resign. This guy had problems in college, problems in Tampa and probably will have problems in Denver sooner or later. This is a guy who shot at someone - I know he was going after his sister's boyfriend, but he shot at the guy! He punches his team mates in the face. Anyone ever see him do an interview? Believe me the Patriots didn't want anyone to see any of those...wow! The Sports hub jokingly plays some clips of them now that he is gone because they can, the patriots don't mind anymore now that he is Denver's problem. This guy will get hurt, that is a virtual guarantee.

    As for Welker, I have no beef with him. The guy was great for us; he played hard, he played hurt, he played tough, he stayed on the field, you didn't hear anything about him, he produced, he was under paid at times, and he came back from a devastating injury without missing a beat. He also most likely played with multiple concussions that he never complained about. He said a few things after he left, but it wasn't too bad. I'll always appreciate this guy as a player.

    C'mon, Talib said he only pistol whipped the guy... his mom fired the shots...  LOL

    Wilfork and Amendola for Jackson would make my day. Wilfork appears to be disgruntled and if we unload both we get out of all cap issues.
