    Anybody who says they knew that Welker was some dynamite talent who would become one of the best possession and YAC receivers in the league is lying.
    For the last two years that Welker was a Dolphin, I can recall many people having him as their breakout player, especially with respect to fantasy football since hes also a return man. Plenty of people knew the potential for him to be one of the best slot receivers in the game was there, and honestly, i doubt welker puts up numbers like he does now on any other team in any other system.

    • People thought Moss was done because they are stupid and feed into everything the media, and t he message boards are parroting. Anyone watching knew that Moss hadn't lost all his speed, ETC, but once an opinion becomes popular with a few big named people, the sheep squawk it.

        I'm sure the fact that the Patriots, and the Colts during their Super Bowl run for that matter, had great defenses had nothing to do with the Super Bowl victories. Teams win Super Bowls, not players.

          While not central to this discussion, this statement is just wrong. Brady didnt make Welker. Welkers number barely changed when Cassell started the entire season. You can argue that the Patriots system made Welker, but it was not Brady. The argument that Welker made Brady has more traction since Brady's completion percentage rose 5% (from a good QBs numbers to a great QBs number) the year Welker turned up (and that is due to the fact that the completion percentage to Welker is about 20% higher than any other top WR in the league).

          Welker is great at what he does, and if an OC can design the right plays, then pretty much any QB can hook up with him a 100 times a season.

            People thought he was done because he quit on his team, people can say what they want but it's a fact.

            Did the Raiders suck? Yes but it's still pretty sad that a player that talented would just shut it down like that.

              Quitting on his team and "omg he's lost a step" are two entirely different things.

                Yes they are, quitting on your team is much worse.

                  Not really, quitting on his team and going to a good team can change things.

                  BEing too slow to do what you do best isn't going to change no matter what happens.

                  Like someone else said(yourfavestoner?) Locker room cohesion is overrated, winning cures everything.

                    Yup. Your argument still holds no water. Don't quite understand what point you are trying to make.

                      Right. they were known commodities because they were or had been good, and they did well in NE, unlike their drafted players, because their drafted players sucked.

                      • A little something from Bill Simmons' new article ranking QBs. He's not a football guy, but he understands the basic concepts of the game. He's an opinion writer, not an analyst, and I always enjoy his observations, even if they are off-base at times in regards to football (dude is a basketball genius, though).

                        3. Tom Brady, Patriots
                        Seems a little high? Know that Football Outsiders had him ranked first in its adjusted rankings -- on top of the yearly reality that he doesn't get eight home games in a dome like Brees or Manning, FO calculates that he played the hardest schedule of pass defense opponents of any QB since 1993 -- and remember that it takes two years to fully recover from reconstructive knee surgery. The Patriots also spruced up their tight end spot (remember this name: Rob Gronkowski) and go four-deep at receiver with Randy Moss, Wes Welker, Julian Edelman (last year's find) and Brandon Tate (this year's find). Throw in their potentially lousy defense, the nonstop Brees/Manning/Favre/Rodgers hype and Bob Kraft's miserly refusal to extend his contract … and yes, all signs point to a monster Brady fantasy season. We'll see if it translates to a playoff appearance. Or a better hairc-.
