In response to glenr's comment:
That's how dumb he is. He's comparing Week 2 to Week 3 or 4 where they deciding to leave Gornk back to block, for example.
The way the O line and TEs has been blocking Welker hasn't had to do much blocking. Just out of curiosity who was saying this? I don't recall reading it.
It was pretty obvious the gameplan was heavily centered around Hernandez in Week 2, which meant obviously mostly passing, but also some blocking. Next, Patsman3 will tell us that Welker is a better blocker than Hernandez. lmao
Many, including me, were saying that since Edelman is closer to Hernandez in skill set, including blocking, this meant he would be the first choice off the bench so to speak with Lloyd, Branch and Gronk already on the field. The logic would be not to deviate from the Hernandez based gameplan plays in the gameplan.
Apparently, less intelligent critters on this board don't get this concept as they scour for reasons why more intelligent people somehow might be wrong in their guesses as to why Edelman was the choice over Welker.
As great as Welker is, his skill set is not well rounded.
The bottom line is, as you know, we have a contingent of pink hat dorks on here who can only root for perceived superstar players, since that what they're used to doing as newer fans from 2007 with a pink hat on.
Not a superstar or blessed by Tony Mazz? He stinks!
Babe says he's a stiff so BB should get rid of him immediately. Of course Babe has the typical pink helmet view that every player on the team needs to be pro bowl quality. He never gets around to explaining how to pay them all. Edleman has a widely varied skill set and can be plugged in a number of positions in case of a rash of injuries. Typical of any jack of all trades he doesn't excel at any of them but his value is as an emergency backup not a starter. He gets his game touches now and then to keep his head in the game just like Woodhead does.
