Welker vs Amendola?
Pathetic comparison. One is a durable perennial pro-bowl wide receiver who has put together one of the best 6 year stretches for a WR in NFL history.
The other guy is a talented but injury prone player who cannot stay on the field. Always some injury that limits him. That will always be the case, count him in for 8-10 games a year, MAX. Just ask Rams fans to get their opinion. Yes there is such thing as being injury prone.
It is pathetic the Pats could not match 2 yrs / 12 million. They gave more money to Amendola for 5 yrs. How embarassing.
If we had Welker and Woodhead , this team would be 7-0, no doubt. Now both of them are producing big time for their new teams, while our team goes 1 for 12 on third downs. Denver scores more than 30 on the road against a great Colts team, and that is considered a "failure" by everyone here. Our offense has struggled to score 20 points all year and it doesnt seem like it will get better.
Belichick did not sign Welker because he had a dislike for the guy, and went out and signed Amendola to prove that he could outsmart everyone. Well everyone is laughing now. I hope everyone remembers how BB benched Welker for the first quarter of the 2010 playoff game against the Jets. For having a little fun with the media about Rex Ryans foot fetish?! It disrupted the flow and may have cost the Patriots that game.
In a kind of sick and twisted way, I hope Welker does great so he can show Belichick what a moronic decision it was to get rid of him. Not only did the Pats lose Welker, they basically gift wrapped him for Peyton Manning and Denver. That has made their offense perform at historically high levels.
Got rid of Welker, Woodhead, Lloyd. Could not make Emmanuel Sanders a bigger offer so the Steelers couldnt match it. Wasting 7 million on IR Amendola All while having 10 million in cap space. What a way to waste the last productive years of Tom Brady's career. Nice job BB
