    I think the kid has looked respectable today. i'm trying to look at the glass half full with the welker situation. he is not as explosive after the catch, but still a b/b- off my half asleep eye-test (got 21 hrs under my belt this weekend with all the snow... you're all welcome...). At the same time I'm pretty sure i saw him mouth the words "I f'ed that up..." to a coach at the return of a commercial while next to hoyer. I'm sure his reads aren't on the same level but think he has a decent shot of playing the underneath game well enough to be affective with Moss over the top. I doubt he'll get the respect Welker has been getting which should help him. Curious to see what the rest of you think. hopin the last 10 go quickly with no injuries so I can catch up on some sleep :(

    He's far more than respectable. For a rookie he's been incredible, for a backup he's been real good. He's no Welker in respect to how well Brady and Welker know each other but Edelman absolutely can play and play well.

    I like the guy a lot he has game, but it is a lot to ask from a rookie in the playoffs

    I'm with you on all this. What i'm asking is how you think he'll play as a starter in the playoffs. Slot reciever is a huge part of this offense, and given the lack of run game today (atleast from my half paying attention in and out of nodding off), Tf'nB is going to need his wr's to be at attention for the coming weeks. I missed the first half or so of the 1st qtr, and from how geno put it on the radio sounds like wes is all done. Can Edelman step up. I give him a 60% chance atm. We'll c how he does on this next drive with the team needing a score. If we melt down again I say we got no shot for the post season. the d seems to be falling apart a-la indy, and the offense seems to be slowin down again too. Maybe jus me panicking but i have the same feeling as the end of the indy game right now.
