Show me the playoffs. No excuses!
Welker is critical to the team's sucess this season. And to lose him to NE ?! WTF are they thinking ?
Sorry, but who cares if he's the "heart of this team?" This team SUCKED the last few seasons, particularly on offense. Yes, Welker is a gutsy, hard-working player, but his presence or absence won't affect our chances at making the playoffs again one bit.
wow will people really be depressed if he is traded for a 5th round draft pick and a back-up O lineman.. (or something like that..)
AGAIN THE DEAL IS NOT DONE... NO AGREEMENT BEEN REACHED YET!
1) Win the next game.
2) See goal #1
"The problem with internet quotes lies in verifying their authenticity."
This way to the polls:
People need to move past the money. It's not a $38 million contract as Welker will never see the end of it. That's how contracts are structured these days.
I'm guessing it's also got a poison pill in it, meaning the actual value of the contract is much lower than what's being reported.
It's Welker for a 2nd round pick. Personally, I think the Patriots will utilize him very effectively. He's a younger, quicker Troy Brown.
