    Re: OMG they can run the ball without Edelman

    Edelman still is a better run blocker then Welker. Not sure how you correlate Edelman being out and the running game still functioning to Welker being a better run blocker then Edelman. BTW Branch was used as an edge blocker in most of the running formations while Edelman is injured. Doesn't make Branch a better WR then Welker but does make him a better run blocker. Also since when is saying one player is better then another at a particular task bashing? Last time I check not all players are the same so who cares if Edelman is a better run blocker then Welker?


    Seriously you two are a bit sensitive. Calm down, Welkers not going to give you a pat on the back because you defended his run blocking ability on a forum.

    I think the great mystery was...why was Edelman starting over Welker? We will never really know.  I think IF - and that's a big IF - Edelman ever developed into something close to Welker's level of receiving ability, he couldn't be counted on to stay healthy..the guy has never been able to do that.

    Edelman earned his playing time by being at all of the summer workouts, mandatory or not, and Welker wasn't. Edelman is absolutely a better blocker than Welker and there are games to prove it. Welker was always going to get his catches.

    Re: OMG they can run the ball without Edelman

    ahh based on game film. Edelman does a better job pushing CB's away from the runners. Based on playing time in running formations BB thinks Edelman is a better blocker then Welker (when healthy). Based on Branch is now blocking in running situations while Edelman is hurt meaning BB thinks Branch is also a better blocker then Welker.

    Welker is by far away the better WR but he's not the better block. Please explain how saying that is in anyway bashing Welker?

    And yes you are sensitive

    We sure could use him returning kicks.

    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.

    Edelman is a stiff. He's lucky BB likes him or his career would be over.

    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.

    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.

    Re: OMG they can run the ball without Edelman

    I don't really remember anyone saying Edelman was a vital cog in the running game.  I think people were  trying to have a discussion about why Edleman was getting a lot of snaps at Welker's expense.  Some thought that since there was more attention being paid to the running game that Edelman was a better option.  Not saying I agree or disagree with the run blocking, but I still have zero problem with McDaniels giving Edelman some snaps to see if he is a legit player or not. 


    I think if Edelman and Hernandez were healthy, the offense would resemble the one we saw early on, which means Wes would be getting less snaps.  I don't agree that Edelman isn't talented.  He could be a good WR and is their best punt returner.  His issue is that he is constantly hurt so he hasn't had the chance to emerge.

    Edelman is an amazing athelete. The fact he has played QB, WR, DB and taken returns at a high level attests to that. He just doesn't do anything at an NFL level really well.
