So I ask again how come nobody else has ever done it. NE had receivers before Welker, other teams have ran that offense. You guys kill me with that crap. Davone Bess was targetd 104 times last year and had 61 receptions so his target to catch ratio is not even close to Welker's. In fact its way off. Bess could never do what Welker has done. Welker did it with Matt Cassel as qb also so lets not give all credit to Brady

The reason I am so high on Welker is because as a Boston resident, I am forced to watch the Pats every weekend (to root against them), and when Welker catches the ball, in most cases there is not even a defender within sight of the camera. Can't say that about Bess. Is that Brady's skill at always finding the open man? Yes, but Welker gets open like nobody else. And he did it here too, with garbage throwing to him, which was why he was Mr. Third Down in his last year here. I'm sure the statisticians out there can somehow "prove" that Welker isn't so great, but I know what I see. Would I bust the bank to get him? No, he's 32. But if he's there to take at a reasonable price, we should be all over that.
Also, I believe Welker has not played only in the slot in NE, he can play on the outside also.
Before brady...47 games and 1 touchdown
with brady......93 games and 37 touchdowns
kinda says it all
You'd think Welker actually raped the grandmothers of some of our posters while pouring sugar in their gas tanks, the way he's being talked about in this thread.
When I think of Welker the Dolphin, I remember a first down machine, ala Oronde Gadsden.
