    Excellent find, Box.

    Chris Brown should be mandatory reading for anyone who wants to learn more about the game of football, at any knowledge level.

    I read Brown all the time. He is at the top.

    Great read.

    Welker may go down as Brady's favorite reciever :eek:

    Welker is the best pure slot receiver I have ever seen. Absolutely impossible to cover him one on one.

    Let's put things in perspective:

    When Welker's on the field, approximately 1 in 7 Patriots plays are completed passes to him.

    I forget who it was, but when the Pats played the Chargers (second game of the 2007 season, I think) Welker stopped, cut and then accelerated so fast the chargers player was faked out of his shoulder pads. Man, what a move Welker put on him!

    I find KC Joyner's recent observation particularly amazing: in Welker's first two seasons (with the Dolphins), he was second all-time (to Gale Sayers) in total yardage production.

    Guess it's time to stop questioning whether a 2nd round pick was too much to give up for him.

    Nope, there are still people complaining about that.

    Tim Dobbins, I believe. :singing:

    According to Pro-Football-Reference.com - Pro Football Statistics and History, ditto for the first three seasons.

    after thinking about it (actually, it didn't take long) I think this is my favorite Welker moment to date.

    YouTube - wes welker

    (not the play so much as what he says after the play is over)

    Welker is my favorite player on the Pats but Randy Moss makes the patriots "go" much more than Welker ever will.

    Forget the 2nd, it's the 7th that was the outrage! Just think, we could have had TWO Oscar Luas in that draft if it weren't for pesky Welker! :enranged:

    Really terrific article, by the way. Unusual to find an article in a mainstream publication that's genuinely about football, not just about football players.

    And here's food for thought . . . it doesn't even say anything about his skills as a blocker when someone else gets the ball. . . .

    The second round pick was fine. It was the additional seventh that put it over the top. :rolleyes:
