    Combine all the number, intangibles, playoff clutchness, the fact Troy even played some defense and choose, if you like...

    For me I love both to the max but I'm going to take Troy. While WW may be the best player to ever play the slot I just loved troy's versatility and being able to do more things. Also for whatever reason I loved that Troy made alot of plays outside the numbers and vertically.

    Sorry if this thread annoys you... Just meant to have a little fun..

    Good question. I love Wes but I'd take Troy if I could only choose one. Troy was money in big games and played defense in a pinch.

    Troy Brown , hands down! You didnt include his Punt returns total which EAT Wes' numbers alive and also, Wes got more opptys on a one dimensional team with no Defense and no Run game. Troy put up 101 catches when it wasnt normal for slot Wrs to do so and also played full season as an outside WR getting 97 catches, something Wes coulnt do IMO.

    I agree, although I do believe alot of people will take Wes een if not on here. He has stolen people's hearts in recent memory.

    In response to RidingWithTheKingII's comment:

    Player? Troy. Slot receiver? Wes.

    But, Troy was big in big games and played with lesser talent around him in a more difficult era for WRs to shake free in coverage.

    Wes has had it easier in an offensive based era, which is why he does 120 receptions every year.

    Give me Troy, though. My favorite Pats player of all time, actually.




    This. ...imo

    Troy Brown is an all-time favourite.  The numbers say otherwise, but Troy was the better Partiot to me.  Take nothing away from Wes, but Troy did it all.

    Really though it's just the recieving numbers that dictate WW may have had a better career. It's my fault for not including kick and punt return stats which I know Troy was awesome at. I don't want anyone thinking I'm knocking Wes cause that's absolutely not my intention.. Wes is a Patriot Hof'er...

    This is a tough question. Troy gets the nod as an all around football player. I also think if he and Brady had played together a few years before 2001 he would have had better #s as he was younger.

    Yet you cannot take away from Welkers toughness, durability and how well he just plain got open.

    Troy = Clutch

    Better punt/kick returner

    Better defender

    Helped a rookie Tom Brady learn to lean on the slot position, which paved the way for Welker to be great.

    Troy is my favorite Pats player of all time as well and that goes back quite awhile  LOL.

    BTW, I did watch the re-run of the Pats/Colts 2004 playoff game the other night and Troy was big in that game and was as usual Mr. Reliable in crunch time.  I was also re-impressed at just how good our defense was back then.

    Welker craps his pants and drops the catch that sets up AV's Super Bowl 36 game winning kick.

    Mandate for Mr Brown

    Not a fair fight though. Brown clearly the more clutch player and fan favorite
