In response to TFB12's comment:
In response to pezz4pats' comment:
He made the team over Branch, stalworth. Gaffney and a slew of others.
Reiss and others said he was one of the best at camp.
Just because you love Welker, doesn't mean you have to slam Edelman.
Besides, he is not taking Welkers snaps, Ridley is. More running=less passing
Made the team over Branch due to age and ST's would be my guess. Certainly not because he is a better receiver then Branch. We hear about practices but like I said earlier, last I checked winning in practice doesn't count towards your league record. On the field in real games Edelman can not get open and is a poor pass route runner. Branch can get open, is a better route runner and is pretty much always on the same brain wave as TFB. As for Welker, Edleman shouldn't even be mentioned in the same breath. It's nigh and day!
As for Riddley, I can care less if he gets the ball more causeing Welker to get less targets. At least Welker is in there and the defense has to play Welker. How can you not understand this? Welker being on the field helps all other aspects of the game and field.
As for the love comment, It has nothing to do if I am a fan of Welkers or not, it's what he does for the team that makes me defend him. You want to win ball games, get Welker on the field, not Edelman!! So stop acting like Edelmans mother, he really isn't that good! Plain and Simple!! He does no cause the defenses any concern, he can't run routes, can't get open so why have him out there?
[/QUOTE] Guess BB is either Edelmans momma or he totally disagrees with you.
I tend to trust his judgement 99% of the time. If he thinks Edelman is good enough to start, than he is. Plain and simple.
