I hate to say it, but I think it is time to let Wes go. I love what he has done for this team, but I am starting to realize that an offense that is "based" on him running five yard patterns is simply not going to win a championship.
Really looking at his stats, the only thing he does well is catch a lot of passes. He was 2nd receptions, but 8th in yards. He was 34th in TDs and 78th in yards per catch. I am starting to realize that he is the ultimate system guy. He does not come up with big plays in big games. He needs the ball in space (he cannot catch the ball over a defensive players).
I am not even considering the drops in this discussion. Yes, technically he was among the league leaders in drops. Go list at that list: it is basically an all-pro roster (Jimmy Graham, Victor Cruz, Demaryius Thomas, Brandon Marshall, Calvin Johnson).
I just think the Welker and the McDaniels/O'Brien offense that is so effective in the regular season against average defenses cannot win big games against good defenses in the playoffs.
