    Some appreciation for Wes Welker

    I was thinking as I watched the Bears beat-down last week that Welker has really done a phenomenal job this year. Less than 9 months after serious knee surgery he's out there making plays, and now that his  knee is stronger, he is just killing people. He was money in the snow in Chicago, and I think that his attitude and toughness has really led the way for the receiving corps. The guy cannot be stopped and is fearless over the middle.

    I doubt he's even on the MVP radar, and of course with the year that TB is having he might not rate even if he were, but maybe NFL comeback player of the year?

    In a year full of great Patriot performances so far, I think that his is up near the top, especially considering his comeback from injury.

    Comeback player of the year by a mile. I still say he's the most dangerous WR in the league because he gets open the fastest.

    I remember so many people saying Welker would be useless without Moss "drawing the safety".  Incredibly unfair to an incredibly talented player with more heart than some entire organizations have combined.  Welker is the perfect football player.

    The play that says it all about WW was Monday night against the Jest the O had a broken play and TB turned fired the ball out of bounds~ WW sprinted to the area to make it look like a receiver was in the area...smart

    He's doing amazingly well, considering that Moss is no longer here to make it possible for him to get open.  Wink wink, nudge nudge....

    It was said here much too often that Welker would not be open any more after Moss' departure.  More baloney for the inevitable mea culpa sandwich.

    Wes Welker is stud in the land of giants, he could get open in a bath room stall.

    I'm going to say the most dangerous possession receiver as he continues to get first downs and take screens for first downs. He moves the chains.   


    D-Jax is the most dangerous WR IMO.  The man is the best deep threat in the league right now with Vick getting him the ball on a dime 60 yards down field.

    I felt like Wes was at least the TEAM mvp back in 2008. Cassel really depended on him as he was developing throughout the season.

    I think Branch is a mix between welker and moss.    Not the every down deep WR but always open and on the same page as welker.   Welker is playing great and has alot of heart.   Tate keeps making plays.

    He had a 4 game stretch where he had some difficulty - but I think it was because he was running the same routes before Moss was traded (and because the other receivers still were progressing). Once they changed his routs (and others came around) his performance became more like last year.

    You could say 5 flanker WR (Moss, VJax, Andre Johnson, Calvin Johnson, Greg Jennings, Fitzgerald, etc) are the most dangerous because they have great speed and size and make big plays deep, but again, the value is the speed and efficiency in which he gets open.

    Welker is an extension of a team's run game which is a huge bonus.

    He's like a TE that gets open quicker and is harder to defend.

    The pundits can blab all they want. Welker can find that one little 3 foot square spot in the middle of several defenders and Brady can deliver a laser right where it needs to be for him to catch it. If Brady doesn't see a clear lane the ball will go to someone else and Wes will throw a block at the closest man.
