In response to mia76's comment:
I could see him back at $7M - he is a great slot guy and he doesn't get injured while taking extreem punishment. I like Edelman, and Amendola (sp) is good but they get beat up and broken, Welker doesn't.
I will be surprised if another team offers more than 7M/3year/$14M guaranteed, but someone may be that stupid. Any team he goes to will get less production from him, and he just isn't a wide-out. If he gets more, then I think he is gone. (And I think he will regret having left.)
If that's what he ends up doing, we're going to have a tough time getting another veteran flanker alongside Lloyd.
You don't see a problem with how many times Brady looks for Welker or any of the midfield targets in and out of the hashes?
The throwing lanes, the windows, etc, all shrink when you have a QB who mostly looks down the middle. It's easy to defend, makes it harder to execute qtr to qtr, game to game, etc.
The idea is to have each target on the field viewed equally by the QB and Brady doesn't do that here.
I vote for the divorce just like the Brady/Moss divorce in 2010.
Ever notice that Brady seems to get alot of balls tipped or knocked down at the line of scrimmage? Maybe I'm wrong but it seems like it to me.
I think it's because he throws so many passes to short guys like Welker and Woody where he has to throw a short pass with a downward trajectory to these shrimps over the middle part of the field most of time no more than 8 yards past the line of scrimmage.
The D-linemen know this and know TB's not going to leave the pocket so they just stick their hands up in the air and they have a good chance at a tipped pass.
I hate the Binky.
