This comment, from a Pats fan, was posted on another board.
Whose to say he's a slot receiver? He was no receiver starting the season, he's a very smart athletic guy who picked up a position like nothing where experienced vets have failed. Guys like that usually just get better.
Troy Brown was just a special teams player, then just a third down receiver. When we needed a starter, he stepped in and caught 100 balls.
I'd have to say that's among the lamest, most short-sighted views I've read on a messageboard in years.
I agree. Look at the 4th and 5th WR options on this team if Edelman weren't there, and explain to me how we'd be better off with another draft pick instead.
Where's the link ... searched everywhere and cannot find that quote. :confused3:
Not a chance in hell of them trading him...only way they would even consider it is if they were offered a deal so lucrative that it would make the Welker and Moss trades seem even by comparison.
from our young wr's, hes the only one that has actually shows us something in real game time so far....it would be ludicrous to get rid of him, no matter what his skillset
I REALLY need to stop coming here during the off season. Good Christ. :bricks:
I can only assume the person who thought that up had been drinking bleach.
Please ignore him in future.
What a bad idea from that fan! 'Our number 2 receiver is healthy, lets trade our number 3 '
Indeed. Please tell me this idea isn't from you, ct.
It is absolutely not possible for any human being to offer that opinion and be serious. Repeat - not possible.
Of course Edelman would be a Patriot. Who said that Edelman is going to be purely a slot receiver for the rest of his career. He is bigger and faster than Welker. The slot position just has the easier routes and allowed Edelman to contribute more immediately. I could see Edelman becoming more of a receiver like Deion Branch.

I was arguing that if all the Patriots saw in Edelman was a Welker backup, it wouldn't have made much sense to draft him.
I didn't even get into the fact that Edelman might be the most heavily scouted 7th-round draft pick of all time (according to Doug Martin, they had at least four different position coaches meet with him, and apparently they flew him in for a visit under the radar).
I don't normally do this but this is a one star thread.
I can confirm that a Pats fan did post this and it wasn't CT. Let's just say that challenging this poster's opinion to his face would be essentially impossible due to his "strong" personality, so I approve of laughing at him here
