So do people still believe the Patriots skill players are good?
Pretty obvious they have a fast paced up tempo scheme and an all world QB who inflates these players stats.
Wes Welker kind of is a joke. Put him on a run first team like the 49ers and tell me how he'd fare. Deion Branch and Julian Edelman could do what he does.
Kaepernick only had 215 yards but on 25 attempts making that a YPA of 8.6. Brady had 440+ yards on 65 throws making that a YPA of 6.8.
So you get all these loser fans that go gaga over welker's "number of catches" even though half the time he's catching little underneath crap thanks to Brady having a lightning quick release.
To sum up, Patriots run a diferent type of offense than most teams which allows them to get several more offensive plays off than the other team due to the tempo. This inflates their skill player stats along with the all world QB play they have with Brady.
Put a Michael Crabtree on the Patriots and he'd destroy Welker's output.
