    If Danny can stay on the field, we'll forget all about Welker....



    IF IF IF IF IF , get use to saying IF, because Amendola is made of glass, another broken player brought in here, when you had the proven commodity in WELKER.  Shame on pats!

    Wes Welker 118 Rec 1300 plus yds 6 td's.  contract 2 years 12 million

    Danny A  63 Rec 666 yds 3 td's. contract 5 years 31 million 

     

    Pats seriously need a real GM.



    Are you complaining about the guy who rescued WW from obscurity in Miami and was almost cut twice by the Fins the two years he was there.

    Are you complaining about the GM who has let others walk and has had maybe one or two actually have good years in other organizations. GM BB has let many go who never had any where the success they did in NE. I suspect WW will have a good year in Denver and maybe as good as he did in NE but I also suspect the Pats saw he was appreciably slower this past year and went with the younger guy.

    BTW the Broncos are going to have to some what change their offense to make use of WW the way the Pats did. Where as with the Pats and DA it will be plug and play.

    We wont forget Welker but if Amendola can stay healthy he will catch his share of passes. Welker caught 60 something for Dolphins. Amendola caught 85 for St L.

     

    The change is suppose to give more years to having a quality player at the Brady security blanket position. It does take a risk of health issues the past two years.

     

    To DontQuestionBB... (a little hypocritical name huh?) ... getting younger and locking quality ip for 5 years is usually a good way to go. The reason for the numbers offered Welker appear to be based on what they were willing to do to take him OVER Amendola. I dont think it was meant personally, just that Wes is getting older and they are insecure as to his longevity. So maybe he will play at this level longer than they expect.... I hope he does as long as he doesnt beat us.

     

     



    If the Pats are serious about making another SB run, then there was no reason to let Welker go for 12 mill over 2 years.  Now, I was against the Pats paying something ridiculous for Wes at the expense of other holes to fill, like re-signing Talib.  

     

    But this is poor managment and personnel decision making on the Patriots.  No if's or but's.

     




    It's pretty simple, dude.  He's a younger and cheaper player. End of story. The skill set is the same, the only differences are the health factor and the QB each played with.

     

    Amendola was also one of the guys people would key on when playing them, where Welker was one of many potential weapons for Brady.

    Your attachment to Welker, which is understood, is blinding you from seeing the investment in a younger and cheaper player who will actually make Brady better since Brady won't be locked on to Amendola as much he was on Welker.

     



    Younger cheaper and you forgot INJURY PRONE!   Offense just got worse bro!  Terrible move

    danny amendola is just as healthy right now as welker is and is 6 years younger....until and if danny gets hurt, to cry about his past injury issues is pointless.

    even welker and brady had major injuries, they happen. none of you are worried about gronk getting injured are ya? amendola suffered two freak injuries, like gronk did....

    You're a troll.  Get lost.

    The fact you think you can compare Welker's years with Brady to Amendola's years with Bradford is a direct slap in the face to Brady.  You don't think Brady is going to bring out the best in Amendola?  A more appropriate comparison would be Danny with Bradford and Welker in Miami.

    And enough with people b*tching about Danny's injuries.  He had two devastating injuries, which can happen to anybody.  Some of you act like he pulls a hammy, groin, v@gina, etc. every other week like Chung and Dowling.  He's a tough-nosed, hustle-type player who will thrive in NE.  Isn't it funny how people conveniently forget that Wes tore his acl?  That would have put him out for the entire season if it didn't happen in the last game of the 09 season.

    Seriously, we know you're not a Patriots fan.  You're hiding beyond a moniker that is obviously mocking NE fans views on BB. 

     


    Im gonna get rid of this before it gets deleted. Lol

    Regardless of this trade, the past several years pretty much proves a real GM needs to be here.

    Yes getting to the AFC Championship and Super Bowl 3 and 2 times, respectively, in the last 6 years is absolutely unacceptable.  I think you need a night with a few brewskies and fresh air, and then come back fresh tomorrow.

    The job of a GM is to put a competitive team on the field, BB has done that at a consistent, long term level better than most anybody... unfortunately, there are some unrealistic fans out there that think NE will/should win the SB every season... there's nothing that can be done to satiate those fans.

    Welker for 2nd  6 years ago had guys like you screaming with anger. Buy players on the upside not on the downside. I hope you don't invest in stocks......

     

     



    Danny Amendola has played 12 games in 2 seasons because of injuries.  If this is your upside, then I would hate too see your downside.

     

     



    Buying potential is sometimes better than buying an older player on the back nine. 

     

     



    118 Receptions is not the back nine.

     



    Danny has more upside over the next 2 plus years. Wes has taking a beating. We got great value from him.......move on. He did go cheap though.

    Always one of the more logical posters here, mbeaulieu.  Unfortunately, presenting logical statements is frowned upon here at BDC.  We have to have a pro bowler at every position and win the super bowl every year, dammit!

    Did anyone think Welker would become what he did when signed 5 years ago?  NOT!!!  When you have TB throwing to you, you know you have catchable footballs coming your way a lot... Amendola has the potential, given good health, to be a Welker clone as everyone in inclined to predict.  Add a healthy Edelman and everyone else, could be interesting!

    Spot on! My man TB12 has a man crush on Wes and he will be ok after a few days. Take a break and go back to photo shop for a day or two.

    Well, the thing is, they are LOADED on guys who can do short/intermediate routes.  They got locked down in the AFCCG fairly well, and if Welker had busted that game open and won it, maybe he would still be with the team.  HE DIDN'T.  Just like he DIDN'T bust open the Superbowl.  SO, when it counts, he got neutralized.  So he was not worth the big money he wanted. From what I read, the news around is that Welker wasn't going to take that same money from the Pats as he took from Denver, he wanted more and just settled for less to go somewhere where he could haunt them a bit.  It's obvious the Patriots were not that excited by the idea of keeping him, as their actions this summer and since indicate.  Whatever that reason was, they went out and got someone decent, and for a good amount of time.
